    We still don't yet know what color options will be available nor what portions of the phone will be customizable, but do you already have plans for the customizations you want?

    My initial thought was to have black on the front and back and if we can customize the trim, I wanted it to be red. It makes more sense that way since I'd be using it on Verizon and it looks sleek. I also liked Eric Schmidt's black front/white back combo, matching all previously weird looking white Nexus devices. Either way, I'm not decided until I see what colors and options are available.

    I don't think I'll get it engraved though. Lowers resell value and I can't think of anything interesting enough that I'd like to see forever on the back of my phone.

    Wood has been mentioned as an option. I'm thinking that would be pretty sweet.

    If it's just a wood pattern or skin and not actual wood, would that change things for you?

    Of course. If it were something like a decal, then no thank you.

    40 Color options from changing the front and back of the phone. Plastic,Polycarbonate, Ceramic, and Metal as material options. In addition to actually having fabric and wood as material options.


    I personally going customize my X all white and have see what the Ceramic and Metal look. No engraving on my Moto X. I would like a black or silver trim but I am excited either way.

    All white ceramic and metal with a silver (or even chrome!) trim would look really good.

    I'll just do black/black or white/white. Probably the standard color available from the carriers (I'd prefer not to customize honestly). I'm boring

    I wonder if we can get it engraved with a sports team logo or if that would cause copyright problems.

    All white (Schmidt's Moto X looked really sexy), probably metal or ceramic, if available.

    I'm thinking that options for engraving will be limited to names or short phrases with the slight possibility of some simple, pre-selected, non-copyrighted images. If they're really trying to keep costs down, then they're not going to be paying much for licensing.

    I agree with you, but I'm still gonna hope. Even if it's an option at an additional cost it would be pretty cool.

    I'm planning on getting one with a blue back and black front. Been wanting a blue phone for a while! I would also consider a silver metallic one if it's an option. However I'm betting the options will only be plastic/polycarbonate or kevlar.

    Here's something I haven't noticed from the FCC filings today. This sheds a bit more light on what we can expect for customization options, and it sounds like we won't be seeing custom materials.

    2.6.1 Alternative Housings

    The front and rear housings and other associated components (bezel, button covers and graphics) will be available in multiple colors and a couple different types of materials. These alternate housings do not have any metallic content differences, pearly content, carbon loading or other significant dielectric loading impact. Testing will be performed on one representative sample and is reflective of the other options.

    I've made my decision. I'm gonna customize it with my name, address and social security number, so if I ever lose it whoever finds it can return it to me.

    I'm pretty good with Photoshop, but I think the effort and time that would go into modifying the leaked press images would be a waste with the official reveal 4 days away. I have a feeling we'll see a website on the order page dedicated to designing and previewing your color scheme so you're not just ordering colors for the phone from a drop-down list.

    That said, let me know what colors you want to see, and I'll give it a shot if I have some spare time today. Stalking the internet for Moto X information is pretty time consuming.

    Can you try a Black and Orange please.

    Front = Orange
    Edges = Black with Orange buttons
    Back = Orange with Black M Logo

    Phone looks like it doesn't have a trim round the edges, just made of two piece front and back.

    EDIT:

    Something like this but I'll have my own engraving where it says nexus

    Nice, they'll be able to steal your identity without even turning it on!

    Earlier today, Guy Kawasaki posted this pic to Google+, and it clearly shows someone holding a green Moto X:



    After seeing that on Google+, I started feeling that it'd be really awesome to have a phone with a back that is a screaming bright color and then a black front. Like, magenta (or purple or blue) for the back, and then the front entirely black. I love the idea of a phone that is almost unmistakably mine among a sea of blacks and whites.

    Agreed, even if it's something as simple as an engraving, I feel like making this phone mine through these little details makes it really significant. The price has to follow it though. I buy phones with the intent to hold their value and resell them, so I normally avoid any personalization. With this, I won't feel bad if I only dropped $3-400 on it, and then I've made it my own.

    And I hold onto my phones until I'm eligible for an upgrade, and I don't bother selling them, so I don't care about resale value. I'm figuring that if the opportunity is there for me to customize the colors of my phone, I'm going to take it and run with it.
