Does this Gold/White case look a bit "fenimine" on my Gold iPhone 5S?

I didn't expect the rose gold to be "that" rose gold, but I dunno. I like the case overall but was hoping the gold would match better

Its called the Graft Concepts Leverage Case....looked good in the stock photo lolz

If you have to ask the answer is yes. You just don't want to listen to your inner voice

whats so "ugly" about it specifically if you dont mind me asking? lol
It's basically the opposite of Apple's design philosophy: simplistic elegance. You have a beautifully manufactured sleek and simplistic piece of hardware wrapped in a macho-show-off piece of ****. I jus't don't see why you'd put such a strange-looking case over an iPhone. Whatever floats your boat.

the idea and concept is there....just not executed properly...design is everything and they missed the mark. I tried out one on my old 4..had so many engineering and manufacturing flaws= design flaws


I can bet the idea is based on a spring-form pan for baking cheesecakes/desserts

the power button snapped and fell out...the hinge mechanism failed on two units I had...snapped like a twig...really thin material at the hinge..plastic and metal doesn't work without the right engineering.

Just a note: I think they got the mechanics right by the time they came out with the case for the 5. I have had one for quite a while with no problems at all. Buttons all worked super. Kind of liked the "retro" look. Liked the matte finish of the black one too.

I think it was really poor timing on their part...iPhone 5 literally was released a couple of weeks (maybe one month) after these guys launched on Kickstarter...you can't just release a 4 case when the 5 just launched. LOL
