    Hello people,

    I want to buy a Lumia 920, but I can't decide finally for a colour. The cheapest colours here in Germany are white, black and red. The most expensive colours are grey, yellow and cyan. At first I wanted the grey version, but as you can see, it's not as cheap as the first three mentioned colours.

    Because I find no decision, I want to make my decision based on the resistance and lifetime of the colours.

    Which colour is the most resistant regarding scratches and sweat? It would be nice if you could bring on your experiences in this topic.

    Greetings

    Hi and welcome to WPCentral!

    I have a black 920, and black and grey CC-1043 cases. I think this is the best of both worlds, as the case is such a good fit.

    I wouldn't say that any of the colours are really any better than the others in terms of scratch resistance - they are all the same material after all. All the cases are one colour mouldings so there is no paint to rub off but both finishes (matt and gloss) are going to suffer if not well-treated.

    Likewise with finger prints or sweat - my personal view is that the matt colours do have a slight advantage here but I can vouch for the fact that my (uncased) black 920 did pick up fingerprints over time. A quick wipe is all that's needed in any case.

    I have white Lumia. I like the look, but if I'd buy again I'd get a matt. If you are NOT planing to get a case for your phone, the glossy phones are very slippery. I consider the matt ones to stand a bit better in this point.

    I have mine white one for three weeks and it has no scratches till now. Neither the screen nor the case.

    I have a Cyan 920. I chose it because I like the matte finish a lot. Color is holding up very well.

    That's weird because I find my matte cyan 920 to be more slippery than my glossy 900.

    Thank you for your answers.

    I looked for pictures and videos for the Lumia 920 through the internet and decided for the white one. I also found this topic while seeking through the internet, which gave me the impulsion to choose the white phone: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...-question.html

    I've already ordered it and I'm delighted when I have it. But I'm glad if you further discuss this topic and share your experiences.

    To be honest: I never had a matte Lumia. But I thought, it should be less slippery. Interesting to see that I may be wrong :)

    Matt doesn't get your oily finger/palm prints all over it. However glossy ones do. So over time, glossy ones give better grip than matt ones. Fact.

    I got a yellow one and I love it. the bad thing is that I use a back-cover thing so you dont actually see it is yellow but still I know it is yellow and I like it very much :) I bought it from Media Markt and I didn't even notice if there was a price difference..hmm..interesting
