    Well I'm considering a 1520 at the minute and I'm torn between black and red. I have never liked white phones because I always thought that it made the phones look cheap. My friend has a red 1520 and I like it plus I have a red 2520.

    Is the black one matt like the 1020?

    Yes, the Black one is Matte. I have the black one. It is very similar to the Nexus 7 and Nexus 5 back.

    I like the Red so much I'm considering ditching the feather case I have on it now and sticking the Rokform universal mount directly to the phone!

    I have a white one and to be honest, it looks great! If i was to buy now, I would probably go for red though.

    I bought a new unlocked matte yellow RM-940 for $425 of craigslist. I consider myself luck. Never been happier with the phone! :D

    white better. Yellow it's not seriously. Look like a small baby :) But it's only my imho. I love black color.

    I faced similar decision some months ago when I was looking for new cover for my Lumia 820. Black was simply boring. White didn't look that interesting either so I picke yellow and still like it. Now I just need yellow earphones. Yellow is new, unique, cool, hipster you name it :D Go for yellow.

    Red looks the best but is so slippery that I am scared to take it out of the case. I kinda like the yellow because of the matte finish and the bright color. I wish they made a lime green one.

    First post!

    I really wanted the yellow, but decided that the size attracted enough attention, without it being bright yellow! Black turned out be a great choice, it looks fantastic and has a great premium feel to it - despite it being made of recyclable materials ;)

    I own the yellow one and it looks great. And it is matte yellow so you don't have to worry about fingerprints. Besides if you want to make your phone more discrete you can always buy a black cover.

    Glossing is easier to stay clean, the matte tends to show finger oil. My black Nokia 820 bright glossy red zagg skin cover (with my logo and QR code). Go with color

    does the white show more visible stain on the long run or does the beautiful white fades to grey(ish) with time?

    To me the glossy is easier to grip... is that just me or a general observation?

    I got the black one with a black case, more stable and for me it's a piece of art!

    I've had 2 lines since '05 - personal and business - and until recently have been limited to conservative black for both lines since I've always been a Windows phone user from back in the day of the HTC PPC Edition on T-mo in '02. Last year though Nokia debuted the NL900 in glossy white and I just dug the clean look of the phone from the first time I saw it on just a YouTube vid. Then in Dec the 920 came out and I upgraded my business line to a beautiful black 920. Now that my personal line is eligible for an upgrade next month I'll obviously go with the classy white 1520. Can't wait!
