Did you view the iPhone 8 space grey in person before ordering your iPhone X space grey?

Reason I ask is because before actually seeing them, I was going to order the space grey.

After seeing the iPhone 8 in person I quickly changed my mind - to me the silver looks more like a platinum colour and much more to my taste.

Hmm... I didn’t think about that, the Space Gray looks beautiful on camera, but I’m gonna be pissed if the Silver looks better in person. However, someone made a good point in another thread that the SG makes the camera on the back blend in better, so I’m gonna use that to make myself feel better lol.

Didn't look at any phones in person before I decided to go with the space gray/black for my iPhone X. The combination of a white back and silver frame just reminds me too much of the Samsung Galaxy line. By association it feels cheap to me. Which is a shame, as Apple popularized that aesthetic, and all my past iPhones were white/white-bezeled.
