It does seem to lean more into the red zones than orange, but it's a mid tone, not super deep. Maybe it needs more black to make it a nice chili pepper red. I'd say it's okay, but not quite there.

Personally, I think the persimmon should have been darker and the blue, lighter.
I wonder if there are varaiations in the color. Mine is definitely not tomato colored, more like a brick color. I keep trying to come up with a comparison to something everybody knows. It is definitely not the color of persimmon, which would be a beautiful lighter orange. If you guys know dried goji berries: that's the color of mine.

I would not mind real bright orange or real bright red either. Maybe there is a leather paint I could use, but then the frame around the device would still be the same (to me) ugly color.I could use a black marker on the frame, but it's a $40 case.... What to do....
