    Hey guys, so I walked into my local Verizon on launch day and picked up a 6 in Space Gray 64GB. Loving it so far, except for un-optimized apps that look bloated (any ETA on this?). Also, I'm not too sure I chose the right color. I've always had black phones (except for a white 4S for a short while), so I figured black was the safe choice. So far, I'm second guessing that. I thought that the back of the space grey would be a lot darker, more like my iPad Air but it seems closer to silver. All the white iPhone's I've seen just look better in my opinion, they look "cleaner" per say.

    I know some say that a white bezel is distracting, but I haven't had that problem with my previous 4S, or my Macbook Air (silver bezel). By the way, does the white/silver iPhone 6 match the silver color of macbooks? I also feel that white matches iOS 8 much better than black. I typically use my phone for web browsing, alien blue (reddit), and texting. For some reason, I just feel the draw to have a white iPhone, and it's my only doubt with my 6 so far. Also, are white phones still seen as "less masculine"? I never understood that. I also like that white shows less thumb prints on the screen. As well, I like the "storm trooper" look of a black case on a white iphone.

    I'd have to pay a $35 restocking fee, but for a phone I'd have for 2 years it's not a big deal. I know this is mostly personal preference, but some insight is appreciated.

    Get whatever color you prefer. It's your phone and your hard earned dollar.

    I have been fighting this exact dilemma the past few days... I decided this week to upgrade, ordered a silver, canceled it, ordered a space gray, then went to the AT&T store to look, and just canceled that to re-order a silver... I'll never get a phone at this rate!

    I always went with black in the past so I had to get a Silver one this time. I don't regret it at all.

    Wow, you're just as indecisive as me. I literally took weeks to debate between 15" vs 13" and space grey vs silver/gold... and tacos vs. burritos.

    "You can have any colour as long as it's black."

    Which is why I got the space grey and slapping a black leather case on the back. :apple:

    Yeah I have gone back and forth historically... white 3GS to black 4 to white 5 to black 5S... I guess the only logical thing is back to white, right?
