Nillkin Frosted Red Case review

    NoJeebS , Aug 5, 2014 :
    So I took the chance and ordered one of these despite most of the photos showing it as a pinkish color. (Google image search yielded more of Nillkin's red colored cases and the color was accurate to the photo I took below.) So not all photos of the case look pink....hence I took the risk and ordered from Amazon.

    I'll be mainly reviewing the color only as other's have already covered the Nillkin case for the One in my depth.

    Smooth matte coating on the outside and inside. The red is not bright and the matte coating makes it look like red vines (the candy). That's the best description I can think of when describing the color of the case. Overall it's no where near the pink hue that we're lead to believe in most marketing photos.

    Anyhow, personally I'll be returning this case as I don't like the red. Frosted clear case it is for me...until my Diztronic red TPU arrives this week.

    Oh and the photo was taken with the One's back camera. ^___^

    I actually dig the color. I have a red Diztronic on the way though.

    I'll let you know in a few days.

    You should pick it up from Amazon and see for yourself. :) If you don't like it just return it.

    Looks nice, although have to say I favour TPU and Hybrid cases over the hard clip on ones.

    This is not the red one.
    This is the ROSE red one and it's pinkish.
    The red one is beautiful:p

    No where on their site do they even list a "ROSE" red case....it's called bright red and this is the case I received. It's not pink at all in person and the colors are accurate in my photo.

    Please read my review as I explained it in detail.

    Thanks for the review and pic. I think the best color for this particular case is still either black or gold. I saw one of the other forum members posted pics for the gold and it does indeed look very good on it.

    Ahumm ahummm:p
    Watch the fourth one in the list.
    Also on other websites it says rose red.

    That's an ebay listing. The seller can list it as whatever they want. Go take a look at the official site like I had originally linked you.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there are other colors but not officially from Nillkin. This is a review for the "bright red" official case from Nillkin....

    I know what you mean.
    I bought the rose red and it was pinkish, i bought a bright red one and it was also pinkish.
    Next time I will buy from an official seller of Nillkin.

    So yeah, then you know that there is only one red from Nillkin. Unless they decide to change the red across their whole product line, this is the only red you'll be able to get in a Nillkin branded case.

    That was way too much explaining just to find out you purchased the same case twice just because one seller listed it as a different name. Then your original statement is misleading because you made it sound like you have some Nillkin "beautiful" red case that no one has seen. Please be thorough in your research before saying I didn't review the right product.

    I know what you mean, but your photo looks a lot like the rose reds I have, that's why I thought it's the same.
    Maybe it's because of my IPS monitors.

    How much did it cost you?

    It is the same case. This is the only red case Nillkin offers for the One. I paid about $10 shipped through the seller Unimart via Amazon.
