That's disappointing. I would prefer a darker red. Not too dark, but I just can't see myself walking around college with a bright red/orange phone.
Replying to me? Quote my post so I get a notification please - thanks!

Rather than trying to calibrate the correct color through Snapseed (I don't have my photo laptop with me today), I figured I would just post a link to the Wikipedia color.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coquelicot

Open that link on your Nexus 5 (assuming there was no screen calibration done) and that is almost exactly what the color of the case is.

Hope this helps!

I agree it's not the vibrant red they have pictured. I also think it's just a stock photo they probably whipped up until they got an actual red nexus in their hands.

Have you seen the red nexus? It's nowhere near the vibrant red google has pictured on their site.

Spigen probably got the phone, adjusted the color and not the stock photo. If I had to guess.

I picked up the red Neo Hybrid case for my Nexus 5. I agree with everyone saying that although it is marked as being bright red it can appear neon orange/orange or even pink under certain lighting. I'll avoid the bright red accessories in the future as I can see them eventually becoming annoying for me. However if you enjoy loud, eye-catching color I'd really recommend it.
