    For anyone that has seen the silver in person, is it real shiny as it looks on youtube?

    I have the silver titanium. Wouldn't change it for the world...except when I'm driving with it in my lap and the sun hits it. Otherwise I've never had any issues. Put it in a case and flip it over.

    I was worried, in the sun, when trying to take a photo, it might shine in my eyes.

    I've actually never noticed an issue. It's been a really nice ride. My biggest issue was the one I mentioned before. No issues in the sun taking pics.

    It's as shiny as it looks. The blue is less so.

    Also the silver will help reflect rays and heat keeping the phone cooler. The black Onyx will do the opposite in sun and get your phone hotter

    That sun comment is actually pretty accurate. I was out in the brush in 90 degree heat taking some pics of troop movements while at drill and my phone was, ahem, a ray of sunshine. Didn't notice any overly warm physical heat.

    Mentioning troop movements... makes me think a chrome phone wouldn't be good for you... last thing you need is a phone that's gonna reflect light and shine and give away your position lol.

    I'm a fan of a white phone, that said, Silver was the obvious choice for me... It's very pretty in person.

    I though it was really shiny. Like mirror finish but that's just me and maybe moreso the back than the front panels.

    If I were foolish, I'd cancel my preorder for it.

    Silver brings back memories of my last silver phone... Nextel Motorola i830... IMO one of my best looking phone ever had.
    I was thinking Coral Blue but now I'm leaning towards Silver. Black is sleep but seeing it at BB... makes the phone look plastic.

    It's all personal preference, but I think the silver looks way too shiny and flashy. It's almost like a mirror.

    A lot of people will love the color for that reason, and a lot of people will hate the color for that same reason. That's exactly why I hate reading posts about which one is better. Neither is better than the other, some people just like different things.

    I totally agree. I don't think this is a color bashing thread though, thankfully.
