iPhone 5 Pantone Standing Bookcase 'Scarlet Sage' (Red) Review

Ok, this will be a short and sweet review of this case.

Spoiler: it disappoints !

For some reason case manufacturers can't seem to build any kind of flip case without it being useless for flash photography.

So unfortunately, despite this looking stunning, fitting perfectly and giving lots of protection, it is unusable with the camera when using the flash.

All you are left with is a pink glow across all your pictures.
Despite me always trying to avoid the flash, there will often be a pic you need to take in a dark setting like a pub which will result in something pink like the images in this post, which makes it a deal breaker for me.
For reference I took a pic of a chair without the flash in a well lit room, the same with the flash on and a pic in total darkness with the flash on (almost completely pink)

I get so angry at case manufacturers for not being able to make this work, or reviewers for not even testing against this flaw.

So there you go, I got so angry I felt the need to come out of retirement and knock this post together on my iPhone with a 'Speck' shield that works just fine.
