Different light and different situations they all look good.

You might want two.

I originally got light gray but it looks kinda cheap so i got dark gray. I feel it looks much better but IMO they really need a solid black cover.

haha, my sentiments exactly. I always buy one up front at full price, then in 6 months when they are a dime-a-dozen on eBay I get a couple more just to change things up.

I went with a dark grey for my Mini. Love the color contrast. I'm going to supplement with a "smoke" Belkin Snap Shied for the back, assuming Belkin eventually offers one for the mini.

Just curious, but how is everyone liking the new smart covers? Im finding them to be less magnetic at the hinge and due to it having one less panel then it doesnt stay closed when i roll it up and use it as a stand or carrying it.

Actually mines very magnetic at the hinge and it takes a lot of force from me to take it out.

I also bought the light grey one for the white mini, thinking it would look the best. I returned it this morning and exchanged for the dark grey, which I like much better. The other colors are too bright for me.

I have red on my white iPad mini. Looks very elegant sharp to me. It's bright and stands out.

I think the dark grey and lime green ones look best of the white minis.

My Mini Smart Cover holds with a lot more force then the one on my 3rd Gen.

I too wish there was a navy one to match my full size iPad. I bought a dark gray for the mini but it's kind of blah.

Leaning toward blue or red now.
Those of you with blue is it too bright? Any pics of the outside in real world lighting?

The red seems very bright as well I wish the red was a tad darker like the leather version.

Light gray is the most unifying color

Red is the most artsy color

Pink is okay as a third option

The dark gray is ugly, even on the black mini

your home button looks a little yellow/dirty, or am I just seeing things?

A trick of the light, the flash lit up the face of the iPad, while the dished surface of the button picked up the fluorescent light above.
