    I have been using Android for the last few years, however the 5S has tickled my fancy. This afternoon I spent a couple of hours playing with a friends iPhone 5S just to see how it works and how it would suit my needs.

    After weeks of research, reading forums and today having a fondle of a 5S I have decided to jump from Android and to an iPhone 5S.

    My only problem now is to choose a color, it's either the Space Grey or Silver but i just can't make my mind up so I'm looking for everyone's thoughts on colors, do any of the colors easily wear, chip or discolor?

    Space Grey shows nicks more than silver but it's still nice.

    I went from a black/slate 5 to a white/gold 5s.

    It's entirely a matter of taste, especially if you go with one of the Apple leather cases.

    I quite liked both. So I'm of the view you can't go really wrong here. Space Grey probably wears easier, as my slate 5 certainly picked up its share of nicks.

    Thank you for your reply .... I always like to keep my phones in pristine condition so the Space Grey does worry me a little.

    I'm a space grey kinda guy. I just love the sliq darkness. The silver and gold are great too though. The gold is a little dressy for my tastes but it looks quite nice. The silver is quite nice too, it really is. It's just a matter of taste. I do hope you'll put a case on it to keep it in great shape (think of the phone, she'll thank you).

    Thanks for your reply. I am swaying towards the Space Grey, but the Silver does look great....

    I currently have the Space Grey 32gb. I really wanted the White/Silver one but I didn't feel like being phone-less until the phone came in when I upgraded in November so I opted for the Space Grey. I would still take a White/Silver one but the Space Grey is really growing on me! But I put it in a LifeProof case....so I'm done with my search for another colored iPhone. I can't see the color through the phone anyways Now it's Magenta! Haha, good luck in your decision!!

    After hours of deliberation I have finally decided to go with the Space Grey .... Who would have thought what a hassle it would be choosing a color. It was bad enough deciding to jump from the Android bandwagon to iOS.

    Thanks to everyone who has replied to my thread, your input has been very helpful.

    It can be a hard choice since they all look so so good. ...but after buying and returning platinum and gold iPhones I settled on 2 space greys...64 and 32GB. Batman like black. :-)

    My choice was the Silver as I though the grey was too dark for me and the Gold was nice looking but just didn't have the looks I wanted, so I got myself a otterbox case and now it looks really awesome and protected!

    For me it was either space gray or gold........so glad that I went with the 64gb space gray, after looking at the gold, it just didn't fit me. My last iphone was a white 4s and a couple of my friends had the black which I really wanted after some time.
