Gray was all they had left, so I went with the obvious because I didn't want to wait. Gonna get a case anyway.

Silver is the best. Did not care for the gold, looks a bit feminine to me!
Gunmental looks great but it shows scratches almost as bad as black and something about the speaker grilles made them appear to be stuck on decals.
Silver, OTOH, looks perfect. Same finish as a Macbook Pro!
And being the underlying metal is aluminum, scratches, even deep ones, won't stick out like a sore thumb.
Personally I like the appearance of black the best as was my M7 BUT you have to be super duper careful because scratches, even smaller ones, are GLARINGLY obvious. If you're even mildly OCD they will haunt you like a small, hard object in your sock poking at your foot with every step...

Wouldn't the black one make the green LED stand out better?
Give yourself, to the Dark Side!

Funny you mention this. The way it's implemented, probably not...

However, when the GS3 came out I bought one in white and liked it...sort of. Until the LED lit up and I could see the entire area AROUND the LED glowing. Hated how that looked. Of course on SEC and Apple devices black is the way to go because a light bezel around the screen doesn't do it for me. Just makes things harder to read.

Again, IMHO/E, of course.

Exchanged my Gunmetal Grey for the Glacial Silver, on the 14th last day I could. And I LOVE the Silver IMO.
