Super Smart Wristlet
Great for College!
This saved my life in college. I cannot tell you how many times I'd go down to the cafeteria only to find I'd forgotten my school ID, phone, or room key. My mom bought me this wristlet for my birthday and it saved me! It fits my iPhone 4S well enough that I don't worry about it falling out and the ID pocket is super accessible. I actually attached a VB lanyard to it so I can put my keys on the key ring, and it works great. I'd highly recommend this wristlet.

What about the Galaxy S Phones?
I keep watching all the wristlets waiting for one that will accommodate my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. I keep running to the Vera Bradley phone when I see a review about a Samsung phone fitting but nothing yet will. I'm stuck with using the mini hipster which I do love and just a wristlet that has room for my cards, cash and coins. I hate wallets. Vera you have so many awesome things but please listen to the people who adore most of your products. How about a wristlet that has a pocket with an enclosure to accommodate all cell phones. It can't be taht hard. I would go for a velcro, snap for twist lock. By the way The Samsung Galaxy phones are more popular or at least as popular as the iPhone!!! Read the reviews!

Couple of flaws, but good.
I bought this to hold my iPhone 5 and my school ID so I could be able to scan my ID quickly to get into school. It is adorable and cute. I can just barely fit my iPhone 5 with case in there, though the top and bottom stick out a bit. However, like many other people have stated, there is no coin pocket, which is very inconvenient. Also, after a couple of weeks of carrying the case around, the fabric loop and metal where the clasp of the wristlet part attaches detached from the wristlet itself (The fabric was torn. I also noticed it was thin). However, I just came up with a solution for that. I took a white fabric hair tie (it matched the fabric Camellia) and cut and adjusted it to take the place of the small metal piece that the wristlet clasped onto. Using hot glue, I glued it in the spot where the fabric used to begin to loop and hold the metal piece. It matches the design very well. It is stable (Not going to fail on me anytime soon) and if it does, it can always be fixed. The metal piece now holds my BBW hand sanitizer case and it attached to the wristlet clasp. Hope this helps those who experienced the same thing I did.

Light, portable, just the necessities
This is my favorite phone / wallet wristlet from VB, I want one for every season, in practically every color! I know my phone will not fall out of this wristlet, unlike in some other styles. I can fit my Iphone 4s in the Otterbox commuter case easily inside, or when out with friends have it in nice fashion case. The Defender case still fits but, makes it too bulky with cards and bills all placed inside. It does have some down falls like no change pocket . It also doesn’t have a screen protector, that would be an awesome feature to add.
I do love that I can easily just open the wristlet, and work on my phone immediately, still with the loop around my wrist as 1 item. I don’t have to take it out and hold two separate items, especially in busy places. Also if it accidentally opens the sewn elastic portion of the case is falling toward the street but not letting the phone come out (yes this happened, major sign of relief).
All and all, this is a great wristlet for some occasions, not all. I wouldn’t take it on major trips where you need to carry a lot easily. However, this is great for running errands, and going out on the town. VB for all occasions!

Not so smart
I just received this wallet in Tutti Frutti. Although I loved the color I didn't love the wallet. My iPhone 5 fit in it without the case and even then the fit was awkward. It did not fit with my Lifeproof case and its puzzling that the description says it would fit with a case. I have purchased LOTS of pieces from VB and have never been disappointed. Unfortunately I will be returning this piece and probably ordering the Super Smartphone case. At least I know it will fit my phone even with the Lifeproof case on.

Not Super and Not Smart Wristlet
First of all, designing a wristlet/wallet to accommodate a "phone" without it being more brand specific or customizable seems a little counterproductive. Unless every size and brand of phone can be secure yet easily accessible, people are going to be disappointed.
For the majority of us, our phones are our contact info, calendar, reading material, calculator, clock, planner and reminder, grocery list, camera, news and weather source, GPS, to do list, flashlight, food journal, music and entertainment, and most importantly, our communication with others. I'd say that's a pretty significant piece of personal property that deserves to be better protected than what a "one size fits all" case can provide.
The fact is different people use different phones and because of that, different sized phones need different sized wristlets/wallets. I realize designing a wristlet/wallet to accommodate every single phone is unrealistic and silly. Just as unrealistic and silly as designing a "one size fits all" wristlet/wallet.
I also agree with a previous comment about looking silly holding your wristlet/wallet up to your ear to talk on the phone. I'm not sure what the solution is for everyone. Personally, I like to handle my phone without it being stuck inside a wristlet/wallet. By that, I mean I prefer my phone to be in my wristlet/wallet, not a part of my wristlet/wallet.
I like the extra protection of my phone inside of my wristlet/wallet so an outside pocket wouldn't work for me. I also prefer the wristlet/wallet to look more stylish and less functional. If you have read any of my other wallet reviews, then you may remember that I really really really don't like an ID window on the exterior of my wristlet/wallet or the exterior of any other handbag for that matter. Once that clear pocket is placed on the exterior of the wristlet/wallet, the style aspect goes way down in my opinion. A clear plastic ID window on the exterior is only good on an ID specific item, a luggage tag and perhaps the lunch bags. Maybe an umbrella. Not on my wristlet/wallet and not on my handbags. Can it be used for something other than my ID...........yes. But I don't want it there for anything. Not for my ID, not for a picture of my kids, not for coupons, not for a reward card, and certainly not for tissues. I want to see the pretty fabric with a pretty little pocket or zipper. ;}
So for me personally, I would like a specific interior quilted zippered pocket with a clear front. A zippered pocket accommodates different sizes without sacrificing security and is relatively easy to access. The clear front would allow for quick viewing without always needing to take it out of the pocket. Not the solution for everyone, but an option I would like to see explored.
Now, the second of all...............what kind of wristlet/wristlet doesn't have a coin pocket, either zippered or kiss lock? Again, I would prefer a zippered pocket on the exterior, but a kiss lock would work too. No coin pocket at all doesn't work. Even for a minimalist wristlet/wallet, a coin pocket is a must.
Redesign the "one size fits all" phone pocket, add a coin pocket and a keyring to the wrist strap and then you'll have a Super Smart Wristlet! ;}
