Hi all, just for laughs I ordered one of the fake Ronin cases sold through aliexpress. The thing arrived today and I am actually surprised: It clearly is a fake (at least I hope so, I've never touched a real Ronin case) but it does work as advertised and it looks somewhat decent. The main difference is of course the type of wood used. The fake Ronin's wood has a slight red tone (think table/decoration in cheap Chinese restaurants) and feels coated or close-pored. I sincerely hope that the wood of a genuine Ronin feels better, more natural. Other than that it smells a bit like a Shenzhen sewer but I hope this'll ease after a couple of days. So, to sum things up: Does it work as a bumper-style case? Yes, it fits tight, no wiggling and should protect the phone as good as any bumper style case. Can you confuse it with a real Ronin? I hope not, otherwise the Ronin would be seriously overpriced. Is it worth the 25 USD I spent on it? I guess so (if the smell vanishes eventually) One final, important point: While the case itself is easily identifiable as a fake, the packaging felt genuinely high quality (no pictures of it attached because it got bumped up during shipping). So be very careful when buying "original" Ronin cases at discount prices!
