To any red 8X owners, could you post pics of your phone and your thoughts on the color?
I'm trying to decide between the red and the black. I had a black one for a while and liked it a lot more than I thought I would, but the red is the color I wanted originally. Unfortunately there's no way to compare them side by side, as the red one is only available online. As such I was hoping I could get some owner pics to help me decide. I've done a few searches, but decent pics of the red color are scarce. The only owner pics I've seen are in this thread Just received my Red 8x! but he states it's a brighter red than the pics show. Anyone else have any to show off?

Well, I went in to the Verizon store and asked if they had a dummy unit of the red. The girl looked in the back and they did, so I finally got to see it in person. Wow, it is bright. I'm still not sure about it, but at least I know now. Thanks for the input everyone.

As a red 8X owner I have to agree with Chris. It's reddish-orange. Not like the bulls logo, not like a stop sign, not like a fire hydrant. It's hard to describe what real life thing it would compare to, it's very unique. :-)

I have one and the color varies considerably depending on the lighting. The brighter it is in a room the more orange it comes off and while I'm not normally a fan or orange, it still looks really nice. If you get it in dim lighting is when it really looks *red* and it is absolutely stunning.

Head over to your nearest hardware supply store (I went to Lowe's) and find the paint color cards. Look for the Valspar 2009-4 (Fairmont Suite Clay Red). I've compared this card to my phone in a variety of lighting conditions, and this is a darn good match. The color card may be a *hint* lighter than the actual color of the phone... but that does vary depending on the angle of the phone. But if you want a good feel for the shade of red (pink-red vs orange-red), I'd advise you to grab that card.
