    I got the white. I can't remember if there was a gray one in the store when I got mine, but I like the white. The drawbacks for me are the white is glossy and slippery. I ended up getting a case because I had several near drops.

    I recommend getting the colour YOU like.

    Geez. Flip a coin if you must. Because for the split second that coin is mid-air, you'll finally realize what color you really want.

    White, as I don't believe you can get the wireless charging cover in grey.

    I have a black. Surprisingly, The matte is very slippery. In fact, much more slippery than the gloss. I think the white looks better anyway, as long as you don't have a job where your hands get dirty..

    Wow, that's a pretty subjective question.... If you like, we can all decide what apps to put on it as well.... And when to charge it, whether to get the charging plate or not, even what to have for dinner.......

    Nah, I'm going to get red. Also I don't need wireless charging because the plate is too expensive.

    There was a gray Lumia 920 that looked pretty sweet, however, I don't think the 822 looks that good in gray. Go with white. ;)

    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.

    That center image isn't even the right tone. Verizon or someone likely modified the coloring digitally because the gray phone has black buttons, not gray ones. I think they digitally recolored a phone with that one, especially since the bezels on the top and sides are more prominent in the actual product.

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

    Personally I have the black it nice Verizon didn't have red at the time I believe it's coming for valentines. Color to me is only 2nd to the device and the 822 is fantastic so good luck either way on YOUR choice.

    Ditto. Regardless of the color, the 822 is fantastic. Absolutely LOVE the phone. It's going to be hard to get me away from buying Nokias from here on out.

    The white looks like a sports car. I guess the red would too, but I think the white is just the right amount of LOOK AT ME, IM A LUMIA. :)
