    I have the space grey and my wife has the silver. They both look fantastic. As others have said try to get to an apple store or other retailer and look at them. You really can't go wrong with either of them.

    If you’re going to put a case, color won’t matter because they both have black front color.

    Unless you have one of the many clear cases or cases with clear backs. Both colors are attractive and I’m still not sure which I prefer.

    There is something very classy about the silver. It’s rich in its colours. The back is this milky colour that is pleasant and the ‘surgical’ steal, of course is great. I’m glad I have both but if I could only have one I think it would be the silver...and that’s a change for me. I normally prefer space grey.

    I have owned both colors and either one works well, for me it depends on the case I am using, right now I have the silver and really like it more.

    It’s probably due to the coating, just like the Space Black SS.
    But there are reports of the coating diminishing over time.
    I had one of the space gray phones that the PVD coating began to literally flake off. I took it back to the Apple store and the manager gave me a new replacement. It was seriously the weirdest thing ever and the manager couldn't believe it.

    I got the silver one as it matches up real good to my original iPhone 2g. See my profile pic.

    Yeah, I feel the same way. Space gray is nice but the overall look of the silver is just nicer looking, in my opinion.

    I wonder had they made the gold option for the X like they did for the 8 Plus if the borders would be a shiny gold stainless like the silver or a brushed look like the space gray.

    Gold would have been a great colour for the X and I hope we see it next generation.

    I'm sure this year's new X (or X Plus) would have a new color. If Apple still sticks with silver and space gray, it'll be boring.

    I have a feeling they’ll release a gold color.

    Gold back with a black front, I'd really like to see that.

    I don't think it matters at all. The front is all screen.

    Choosing a color is such a personal choice... and sometimes an emotional one. Normally I lean towards silver, but I went with a gold 8 plus. It took me a while however to decide that's what I really wanted to do. I visited the Apple Store many times to look at them, as well as a few other stores that had them (Best Buy, Sams, etc) because the lighting is different.

    This is really a good problem to have, right? You've got two awesome choices... and it's best to check them out thoroughly before you decide. And, as someone else pointed out, if you're going to be using a case, then it also depends on the type of case you choose! Good luck and keep us posted on what you decide!

    To me the silver is the better color for one reason, the frame. I’ve always had space grey black iPhones, but after feeling the painted frame on the space grey it didn’t have the same slick premium feel as the silver, mine felt almost tacky. And I returned mY space grey for silver. If your never going to use it naked then won’t matter. It bothered the heck out of me

    You can always just get both, then you don’t have to choose at all.
