    I got the Aluminum 32 gig. I fell in love with the color and how the black contrasts with it. I can't wait, I really do hate that I need to slap a case on it. I could have it go naked, but with my luck, I'll drop/scratch it. *sigh*

    Same deal. Raw metal look, nice accent with the beveled edge, nice contrast both on the darker nexus logo and reflective fingerprint sensor's border. Graphite, while a great look, seemed to hide too many of the phone's smaller details in my opinion, and the frost just had slightly too much of a white polycarbonate look (which HTC pulled off well, but isn't my choice on a metal device).

    Exactly. My last two phones have been white, and I'm so bored of that color. Plus, the aluminum just looks Sexy *** hell.

    White isn't bad. But if there is an scratch it looks more visible.
    I would think White hides scratches the best (metal underneath being bright colored, no?)

    Or is the issue shallow scratches and scuff marks that then trap dirt and stand out on White?

    64gb graphite. I tend to be pretty conservative in how I dress and most other aspects of how I present myself publicly, so I preferred having the huge NEXUS on the back blend in as much as possible. Although I guess it doesn't matter, since I will put a case on it (black and thin of course, nothing funky looking), but at least what is exposed of the phone will blend in with the black screen, black case, and black cyclops camera bar on the back. Yep, boring I am when it comes to that stuff.

    128Gb Frost.
    Never had a white phone before and I thought the contrast between the white and the camera bump in black looked kinda cool.
    Kinda like the Stormtrooper of Nexus designs

    I originally thought Aluminum but the Frost won me over. I really like how the silver, in the chamfered edges, contrasts with the white. I also liked how the Nexus logo on the back is more muted.

    I really wish there had been a way to actually see/touch the various colors before ordering. A couple of reviewers have mentioned the Frost has a different feel, likely because of the Frost "coating", so it will be interesting to see how it feels and holds up. I do know a couple of reviewers mentioned the Frost as their personal favorite, that it looks really good in person.

    I'm the complete opposite, I like flamboyant things and my phone is no exception. Haha. Currently I have a sailor Jupiter phone case on my GS5. Can't wait for more cases to be designed for the 6p; I also like variety. Surprisingly enough though, this is one phone I'd be okay with going naked.

    I ordered the graphite one. I just love to be on the Dark Side... My hands get dirty all day and also felt that stains would show to easy.

    Initial review impressions are in but I'm a little disappointed that all the review units are graphite. Was hoping to see all the colors in greater detail.

    Never go for graphite. Because scratches would be way more obvious on the graphite version. Mine got scratches because of Huawei's useless case.I wish I would have ordered Aluminium. What color did you choose and why?-20160203_172943.jpgWhat color did you choose and why?-20160203_172929.jpg

    I still would have gone with graphite. I regret going with Aluminum.

    Love my Aluminum 64GB. Reminds me of my beloved One M7, the first phone I loved to hold just to feel its design....

    I was tempted by Frost but settled on Aluminum. I couldn't go with graphite, it looks a bit too boorish for me. I might have been tempted by the matte gold if it had been out, but a month+ with my phone and I'm still loving the aluminum finish. I've had a few owners of (older) iPhone models ask somewhat enviously what my phone was...never had that happen before with a Nexus device!

    I bought the Gold one since it was on sale! It's arriving tomorrow. I hope I like the phone, I'm starting to get buyers remorse for some reason

    I went with the gold because it was the last color I ever would have picked and I love it.

    I have graphite and love it. looks awesome with the Rhino Shield bumper and Spigen clear ... up until yesterday I had the carbon microfiber case, and when I'm at home I don't use one, especially if I'm on the couch or in bed. no scratches on mine and love the stealth look, especially how the visor looks against the dark metal. plus the chamfered edges combined with the black front give it that subtle but premium look I love.

    Exactly. I have a black Spigen on mine, but it's not the same

    Got a graphite 64 gig 6P. I would've gone with the gold, but the 64 gig version was out of stock and I was too impatient!

    32GB Graphite because it was the only model on sale during Boxing week. I don't think Gold was even available up here.

    I went with Aluminum. I actually wanted Frost, but it's not the easiest color to find and Amazon only had Gold, Graphite, and Aluminium at the time I ordered.
