    Ok, so I have been drawn to the Lumia colors ever since they first came out, and fell in love with the Cyan 800. Unfortunatley my carrier only had black, so unless I wanted to pay double price sim free, I had to settle for that.

    Planning my upgrade, I was on the verge of going for a yellow 1020, but the 930 won me over with the sleek design and great HW, so I finally decided I could let go of half the megapixels... but what about the colors?

    Black is just way too borning for me, a black phone is so... common. Like a grey car. White? Way too iPhoney and have a feeling shows smudges the most. Green? OK, I am bold, but not that bold, plus with that bright green being the trademake of the Nokia fakedroid line, I would not get caught dead with that. So orange it is for me - different enough, but still a warm color, it's been growing on me ever since April.

    But what about you? What color will or would you choose if you were about to grab a 930? Take the poll!

    My choice would be cyan, but sadly I'm not seeing much in the way of new cyan phones.

    Green!
    I would do fine with orange too, but I'd prefer green. If I could actually get a green 920...

    Hmm. Black or probably orange. I'm a fan of the older colors red/yellow/cyan/(1520)green though!

    Edit: id like MS to bring back 920 grey!

    I prefer black always. Unless I could get blue, which obviously is not happening.

    I had a cyan N9, then a red Lumia 920. Now, an orange Lumia 930. :-)

    Hmm.. it's funny. I kept reading in the availability thread that everyone was going for black, yet that seems to be the least favourite color picked here.

    If there was a Cyan version then I would get that. As there isn't, I'm going with Black.

    I don't think Apple invented the color white in their iPhone line lol. I'd get a green 930 given the chance though.

    I voted green, but I'm not 100% sure of that yet. I went to see the phone live. Orange looked great, just as advertised, but the green seemed brighter than what the pictures showed. It still looked great, but perhaps a bit too flashy for my taste. Black is always a good, subtle, professional-looking option, but the colored ones look so amazing that I'd like something other than black. My 920 is black and I love it, but I did want the red one more, however I didnt like the glossy finish so the reason I opted for black was the matte finish. Now finish isnt the problem, so I guess I'm leaning towards green. Orange is great too, but just not quite my color.

    I think we need some real world photos of these phones from people who have them. Some people say the orange is bright as hell (like highlighter orange) and is fairly distracting. Pictures don't seem to indicate, I thought it was kind of a subdued bright orange. Im thinking the green is going to be the same thing but from what ive seen it doesn't seem like a super bright neon green but just like a bright pastel green.

    The thing is that flash/lack of flash distorts the color every time. It's just about impossible to really get a truthful picture of the color other than seeing it with your own eyes.

    I think the orange in this picture is quite accurate:

    nokia-lumia-930-3.jpg

    The green however doesn't seem that accurate in that pic.

    This picture seems to be closer to the green, although it's a bit darker than it is and sorta lacks the neon-like brightness, but it still gives a better image of the green IMO than the official pic from Nokia that I linked above.

    Thanks everyone! So I don't want to read too much into a sample of 83 votes on a site dedicated to WP and within that on a forum dedicated to the 930... we may be more adventureous, than the average consumer. But the results - while fairly evenly split - show a clear preference for the colored versions.

    However it is weired how hard it is to get a color variant in my country (Hungary). The big carriers here only offer balck or black & white, the major retail stores like Media Markt or Edigital only stock those 2 colors too... you can only find green and orange at smaller, shady phone stores. These import directly from Western Europe and Asia, going around Nokia/MS Hungary and usually the warranty can only be validated at their store (if they still exist next week...). It's almost as if the "official" players were worried people are so conservative color won't sell.

    So I have to wait a bit longer to see if any of the big ones will carry orange or if I have to take my chances with those shady stores.

    I got the Orange, and it's erm... very Orange - Day-glo orange - and like the green comparison above, it's more orange than that! lol

    Still funky, not sure if it's too much for me, but I'll see how I get on!
