    Why does the slate look so damn different in pics than it does on Moto maker? If that thing is blue I'm gonna have to send back. Got champagne accents.

    I don't think it's going to be blue at all. Check out YouTube. There are some video's with slate backs and they all look grey, like the MotoMaker site.

    Black/dark grey trim/ash wood
    My Ash wood back with dark silver trim..
    Sweet! I was wanting to get one of those, but I'm worried the wood will be slick to hold... How does it feel in the hand?

    On an unrelated note, I got super excited this morning because Newegg was doing a special through their app for $18 Samsung microSDXC 64GB. I think I may do that instead of going with a 32GB phone...

    This exactly. But I think he meant "attracts" fingerprints. Silly auto carrot.

    Would like to see an actual picture of the Royal Blue, thinking about going with that and champagne... Guessing it's not as dark as motomaker is showing.

    Thx.

    I hope not. I was thinking it would be the same color as my moto x 2014, which has more green in it.

    I've been very confused about what color that is. But in moto maker there is only one possibility - turquoise....

    Oh my. Soooooo nice!

    The bamboo is darker than last year's model and feels more wood-like, too. And it seems less slick than last year's as a result. And I'm VERY glad I got the dark gray accent because it compliments the sides very well while still allowing the bamboo to be the highlight of the back. The etching in the bamboo is not particularly dark but stands out just enough, so I guess it doesn't look garish

    And then there's the wife's phone. She wanted hers to really stand out, so she got the turquoise with the pink accents. The lettering on the CSR back is good and dark (blotted most of her name off for here). Interestingly, it seems like the color "shifts" based on lighting; it seems to brighten and darken depending on direction and type of lighting. My guess is because of the grooved back.

    May I ask why she got her name on it? Though this isn't all bad in case someone steals the device.

    That's exactly why she did it. Mainly for at her office in case she were to set it down somewhere and lose track of it.

    So it's hard to take a picture of slate . I tried 3 cameras then still had to edit the color. This is pretty darn close to what it looks like.

    It's kind of a steel grey color. A tiny bit of blue, mostly a dark ish grey. I *love* it and am returning my charcoal ash wood.

    Jephanie is right about color shifting. The slate will get a little lighter with direct light bouncing off it.

    Makes sense. My only issue is if you plan to sell the device. I usually sell my old device to offset the price of the new device.

    Why is your wifes name off centre? Just seems odd lol.

    Assuming she wanted it like that rather than a error on motorolas part.

    That's exactly what I do as well. Not sure how you can even sell a phone that has a persons name on it, though. I wouldn't but it. If she plans on keeping it for years and years, then the point is moot.

    His post said he blotted out part of her name. i would assume any engraving would be centered.

    After seeing this video I think this color looks much better than it did on moto maker. I think I'd get that color with a black frame and front. Did he say it was the turquoise?

    I assumed you blotted out the last name, since most people would have guessed her first name?
    Even see the missing part from her first name based on your own forum user name ?

    Yeah. Jeff....Stephanie. Some friends tagged us with the nickname Jephanie as a joke from Brangolina, etc. It stuck so we rolled with it. LOL
