That image doesn't do the gray any justice. Color is always a matter of personal preference, but I found the gray to be the best looker of the original three colors. I haven't seen the red yet, so that may look better. But the gray provides a nice contrast and looks great when you take the whole phone in.

Just like all the 822s, pictures don't do it justice. The shame is that VZW doesn't carry gray in store.
