    So I currently have a defective White 920 and I am going to be getting a replacement, I have enjoyed the color but I am not sure if I should get another white one and was thinking of maybe getting a yellow one instead. Anyone here with a yellow one who wants to give me their opinion? I got white originally because it was the only option and instead of waiting got it. Does the yellow one look professional like the white one or is it too flashy?

    Thanks for your advice.

    I went from White to Yellow. It's flashy but after a while you get used to it and sort starts looking like your old white one. The novelty wears off faster than the Cyan.

    Interesting, do most of the themes match it? I really like being able to use any theme, it seems with the yellow you are limited.

    I can't say for certain since I stuck with a Blue/Red theme. The brighter colours match better. If you want a better idea check out this thread:

    I had a defective Red one and ATT wouldn't give me the choice to change colors. I was going to get a white one, actually. But I'm stuck with red again, which I'm still cool with.

    I've got a yellow one and use a red theme which looks great to me and matches really well. But I reckon a black theme would look even better if one was available. I know we can set the phone to high contrast mode which gives us black tiles but it's not quite the same as having a black theme.

    Sorry, I don't understand. Are you saying there is a black accent in themes? There isn't one on my 920.

    I'm really dissapointed at myself for not waiting for the other colours to come in, I hate the matte black finish. The phone is really slippery and I feel like I will drop it every day. Should probably get a fullbody screen protector or a case.

    So it seems like Yellow is a good choice. Could someone with a yellow one post a picture of theirs with the steel theme, it seems to be an interesting match.

    Here you go. Actually, it looks quite good using the Steal accent.

    Thanks for the picture, it looks great. I like how you have all those small tiles on the top, looks like a control panel. :)

    I'd say go black because 99% of the beautiful Hard cases will blend it beautifully with it!

    I have black and it looks great, but is so damn slippery. Are the gloss ones less slippery? Incidentally, I don't have any scratches on it yet.

    I had a white and now a black. Both seemed equally slippery to me.
