Looked good in the store but under a lot of different lighting sources it looked pink so I returned it for the black leather case.

I went with the red leather on my space grey 5s and I'm definitely continuing the tradition with my iPhone 6+ (on preorder). Love the way it looked new and also after long time use.

It gets a really pretty patina after wear and tear.
Also, goes to an amazing cause. (Product)

I had the red leather on my 5S and it quickly became worn and discoloured (blackened) especially on the edges. Looks great when you first buy it though.

On the Space Gray, the red looks gorgeous.

On the white frontal plates (Silver & Gold) it's not as beautiful.

I'm debating between navy and red. the pictures I'm seeing look more orange than a deep red, though. I don't like that so much.

I liked mine but it was a little orange---definately not a deep rich red. I say was because I returned it, not because it was too orange, but because the silicone version was a little grippier and I liked using it more. The leather is very nice looking in general tho'.

I got the midnight blue. I thought I would regret it because some of the pictures I've seen online makes it look so dark that it's almost black. I was impressed once I actually got in in person though. I was also surprised of how slim the case was because for some reason, I was expecting a bulky case.

i like there red usually but it looks too pink to me

u maybe colorblind to a degree. This is not an insult, or joke or anything. I'd advise you get that checked out. Again, I am not trying to crack a joke or anything similar.

again, I wasn't trying to offend. I hope you really contact an optometrist tomorrow to rule out any color seeing difficulties
Lol don't flatter yourself offended by you? Shouldn't you be making some more BS threads for the Wasteland? It's kind of lonely in there tonight, kiddo.

Not sure why you are taking this tone with me. You've made an observation thats indicative of what colorblind people experience. Other helpful members in this thread are agreeing with me also.

I still firmly suggest you see an optometrist to rule out colorblindness. You may attempt to insult me all you'd like, but I am more concerned for your eyes.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll go with the navy.

Meanwhile, we're spending a significant amount of money on the new, great device and this case benefits an awesome charity. That's reason enough to buy (product) red.

I hope you will update the topic with some pics in one or two weeks, because i want to know if it wears like the 5s' one....
P.S. Can you make other pics in sunlight?:p
