    So as you all know i am working on a Rom for our phones , i would like to know what color scheme you would like rather than the Brown and Orange that the phone comes with . ill see if i can find a trend and then we will put it to a vote.

    Thanks everyone for contributing.

    Having a lot of black would help save a little battery power. The AOSP Gingerbread colors are nice

    maybe black and the light blue, the same color as the battery, or maybe a neon green?

    Yea. They definitely picked a poor brown to use. Then coupling that with the orange just seemed a little too much like Halloween cheesiness. To be perfectly honest I feel like with it being a droid branded device something with a majority black and a bright popping color would be the best way to go. Neon pink, that could be new and exciting, yes?

    Red and Black or Orange and Black if you can't stomach another Red theme

    Agreed with using black to conserve battery lfie!

    I stuck some colors together. I think a dark grey instead of black might be novel with an orange.

    Sorry if my attempt brings nothing to this discussion, it just sorta helped me visualize things.

    Cobalt blue and black always go well together.

    What has been done to death is blue.

    The reason its been done to death is ppl like blue.

    I vote for a blue theme like crysis or pryde like we have on the fascinate.

    You may say oh he doesn't even have a charge...but I will on Wednesday

    Dose it have to be a single color, or can you throw in a carbon fiber look to it?

    I know i am being picky, know nothing about developing......but a black and Carbon fiber theme would be slick.

    Another vote for black and some light and easily-visible shade of blue...

    the carbon look is easily done in Photoshop (I do photography for a pro sports team) and the grey highlights in the texture will actually show up quite well....

    I would like a burnt orange and black theme which you don't have shown above. You have it on gray but I think it needs to be on black overlay. Second choice would be the bright green and black. Just don't think an all black droid phone with that awsome screen should have gray scale on it at all. Screen like that just needs eye popping colors and I just think grey scale will wash out the contrasting.

    Maybe you can find some symbolism in the choice by checking out a site like this, just a thought:

    I wonder if the original colors they chose for the charge were picked due to their power consumption properties? Even though we may not prefer them visually, maybe they are best for the phone? You know, kind of like why they use Black on the Amoled screen instead of white on LCD's. Any thoughts or research on that? The Tbolt has white all over it and it's battery sucks.

    Awww, were you talking about my MSpaint color swatches?! Haha. I like the burnt orange and black, I just feel like that's really Halloween-y. I really don't know anything about colors and ROMs and all kinds of fancy type stuff.

    I think it all depends on what kind of a feeling you want to get from it. Because red and cyan look really nice together when done correctly, and black looks great with all colors. It just depends on what kind of a message you want to put out there.
