Good Protection; Coloration Off
on April 28, 2014
I bought this case because I wanted something that would protect the phone. The fit is great - not bulky but not too dinky, either, and I think that it does its job at protecting quite well. The biggest problem in terms of protection that I have is that the case is extremely slippery, and you will - without doubt - drop it once in a while if you use one hand to hold it. It does get quite annoying that the bevel near the charging port is so extreme and close, so it's quite tricky to uncover the port when you go to charge it.
The most disappointing part of this product is that the color is not as advertised. I bought the gunmetal grey case because I liked the color shown in the picture. However, the color pictured is not the color of the case. The grey has a sort of yellowish/goldish tint, and it looks a lot more pewter than it does grey. In some lights, it looks grey, but in the sunlight and in most other lights, it looks pewter. I'm not a fan of pewter, by the way, so I'm currently shopping for a different case. I have uploaded a photo for those who wish to see what it looks like in real life to see if the coloration is a deciding factor. It may not be for everyone else, but it was for me. [...]
So, if you're looking for a case that protects your phone and don't mind the hassle of struggling to open the charging port once in a while, then go for this case. However, if you're looking at buying grey, I would suggest you look at a different color because what you'll get is a dark pewter instead of gunmetal grey.
