    Hey guys,

    I'm interested in the 8X, but I'm not sure which color to chose. Here in germany it is available in limelight yellow, graphite black and california blue. What do you all think? Which is nicer? My favorite is black, but blue is not a boring standard color and something different (well, depends on how much other guys think the same thing right? ;)

    Thanks for your advice

    I am torn between Blue & Yellow the yellow/green is very unique and a nice colour but am not sure if its a bit too much ? especially as i am approaching 30 lol

    Black is too boring for me and Red just reminds me of football teams of which i am not a fan like Arsenal & Liverpool, Man U etc

    I suggest you go for Blue :D

    I'm actually torn between all of the colors but Verizon may not get the yellow version. I've always gone with the color that stands out the least, but I'm tempted to break that streak with the 8X.

    If you want to be unique / stand out, blue. If you have a Surface and want to match, black.

    If I were to get the 8X, it would definitely be the California Blue for me. :)

    I'm 29, and I want that yellow pretty bad. But Vzw isn't getting it. So I guess blue or red. Kind of on fence about it

    Carrier exclusive colors is kind of annoying. When black is exclusive you've hit a new level of stupid.

    Love the red. Love the fact that WP 8 devices all stand out.

    If black is your favorite, get the black. You never know if you'll get tired of the novelty of having a blue/purple phone and wish you'd chosen your favorite version. Of course, I would recommend checking the colors out in person once they hit shelves.

    I agree... Though I will admit that if T-Mobile USA got the 920 and had only one color available, I'd grab it regardless!

    Verizon is getting black, blue, and an exclusive red color...

    I really like the color of that blue but with that red being exclusive... I might have to see it.

    California Blue and Graphite Black have been very attractive in my opinion, especially the Blue. I really want to see how the yellow looks though, could be different.

    Microsoft stores will be getting all the phones in all the colors, do you think they'll have a yellow for Verizon even if VZW isn't getting that color, or do you guys think they just wont make that color at all for VZW phones?

    My guess is there won't even be a yellow version for verizon. It would ruin the exclusivity of it.

    Not only that but the VZW press release about the phone says it will be available in 3 colors for the VZW network. Black, Blue, and Red.
