Tapatalk Nexus 5 Master Race
I finally received my copy red bumper, ordered on the 7th March so it's taken 21 days to arrive
Thoughts? Haven't got or even seen an official red bumper to compare but I would describe the colour as orangey red which tallies with reviews I've seen and the colour looks good.
It weighs 2 grams less than my official black bumper. In terms of shape and moulding it looks pretty much identical, although the red bumper has the thin buttons. I don't find them any worse to press than the thicker buttons on my black bumper.
Fit is perfect, the cut outs are identical dimensions to the official bumper that I have, the camera, flash and mic holes are spot on.
Only issue I have is the soft plastic on the top right and left front is peeling away a bit to reveal shiny plastic underneath (yes, on a brand new case). I have opened a case with the seller for a refund/replacement.
Barring the peeling I would say that this case is 90+% OEM quality.
My original black bumper has held up well, there is no peeling whatsoever. Only issue is the button feel. I can live with it but it is definitely a downside to either the official bumper or clone versions.
Packaging is close to identical; as others have said the minor differences in the colours on the screen of the picture of the nexus 5 on the back. The barcode is a different size and shape.
Have uploaded a few pictures.
