Other Colour Advice for iPhone XS Max

I woke up and preordered the iPhone XS Max 64GB Gold at 1am or whatever it was. I then realized that I wanted more storage and at that point it was going to work out better to go through my carrier so I could actually get it on launch day. So I preordered through my carrier (didn’t have to pay yet) Space grey 256GB.
Now I’m wondering if I should try to change it to silver when I pick it up or if space grey is the better of the two.

I’m upgrading from the 8+ Gold, and as much as I loved that colour when I took the case off, it wasn’t really me, and I want my phone to go with whatever case so that is more suited to silver or space grey.
I was set against gold, but then I saw unboxing’s and I’m unsure again.

So I guess I’m wondering what everyone else ordered, and what you would recommenced. Maybe those coming off of the X colours have some advice too because they are the same.

Anyway, I know it’s a bit ridiculous and I should just decide but just trying to get some input to help make my decision.

I got the gold, and most cases you won't even see the color of the phone unless your cases are all clear.......I have the space gray 8 plus, and only got it because it was the only one that didn't have the white front

Are you someone that uses a case all of the time? If so, the color of the phone doesn’t mean anything because it is always covered up...
