    I really prefer a black front to my phone, but I can't decide to go with the slate or graphite back of the iPhone 5S! I'll probably just wait until the official apple announcement and see better quality pictures

    What are you going to do? I'm thinking about getting graphite just to show its the 5S not the 5

    P.S. Make sure to vote on the poll

    I still think the black and slate looks better.

    I'm getting black. Graphite looks like pencil lead.

    May go with graphite just so SOMETHING looks different when I get a new phone.

    I think black looks better. I plan to buy a black IP5S.

    To me, graphite and champagne scream, "hey, look at me, I've got the new IP5S, aren't I cool."

    I reallllly can't decide.... I like them both a lot... Everyone Iphone I've bought, I always went with the Black option... But Graphite looks pretty nice.

    Maybe it's time for something new?

    As much as I like Black and Slate, I really like the Black and Graphite. So if I'm to upgrade, I think I'll settle for Black and Graphite.

    I'll probably get the Graphite for something different but since I keep it in a full case I won't see the color anyway.

    I love the slate look hopefully it's not discontinued due to previous scuff issues.

    I didn't plan on getting the 5s. I have never had a S iPhone. But if it comes in Black & Graphite i'll be getting it. Fancy a change from Black. Had 3 black iPhones in total.

    It's funny, but not everyone has ruin into scuff issues. It may have been an off batch or they may have changed the process for the slate back along the way.

    Or some people are hard on their electronics and it wouldn't matter what the back coating was made of.

    I think I want the Graphite, but I'd have to see it in store.

    Well there have been countless leaks, and it makes sense that if they are adding a second white color, they will add a second black color

    I'm not sure what color I will get yet. I think i prefer the black to the white and the new grey color maybe a good option as it looks like the edges will not chip off so easily

    I heard a rumor (I know, a rumor) that black & graphite is now the black option, and that there wont be an option of black & slate anymore. If this is true, I wonder if the rumored "champagne" iPhone is going to take place of the white option? That seems unlikely. The rumor of the graphite taking over the slate seems feasible, though.

    I have to see them in person to make an assessment. I do like the look of the graphite though, in photos. I like how contrasted the blacks are on the graphite, compared to slate. I love me some contrast.

    Yeah, definitely graphite.
