    I prefer the slate black model myself. I have had mine since launch day in a Apple leather OEM case and it still looks like new.

    While we can’t choose which colour you’ll prefer some have reported that the Silver stainless steel scratches easier than the Space Grey. If you don’t plan on using a case that may be relevant to you. That said, I think the Silver looks a little “richer” with its milky coloured back while the Space Grey looks sharp in a Batman Dark Knight sort of way.

    I got the silver. I liked the look of the silver stainless steel. I've had mine in a case though for the few days I've had it do far so I probably would have been fine with either color choice.

    Are you going to put a case over it? If so then it doesn't really matter what color you will go with because it's black front for both Silver and the Space Gray Model. But for me I went with Space Gray.

    That is true that most use cases however there are translucent and clear cases so in those instances the color can make a difference.

    Really doesn’t matter when you have a case on it and with the cost to repair I would get a case.

    I picked up a silver X today I thought the silver band gave it that retro look.

    I love the Space Gray. I'm not a fan of the "chrome" look -- particularly how the silver of the stainless steel doesn't match the silver back.

    As I wrote a few times in the past, I like the Silver more, but I would choose the Space Gray because of the easily scratched stainless steel frame of the Silver.
    It is gorgeous, but you can see scratches on it in a very short timeHello Ladies and Gents, I am getting a new iPhone X but I can't decide the colour, it is YOU to choo-c3a8c0d6-c0b1-422f-8209-7782d4320b92.jpeg

    Welcome to iMore.

    This question gets asked a lot. I always offer the same advice. As all people have different taste you are going to get varying answers. Plus no one has your exact taste. I suggest going to the Apple Store and comparing them side by side. In the end you are the person who has to live with and use it. And you don't want to base your decisions on other peoples like and dislikes then down the road regret your final decision.

    I prefer the silver but it all boils down to your personal tastes. If you’re just going to end up putting a case on it—unless it’s a clear case—then it doesn’t matter all that much anyway. It’s not like the other iPhone models where you’d have to choose between a white or black bezel.

    While I agree with you in general, I do think the iPhone X is something of a "special case." The issue is that you only have the two colors and both are good looking. I can see situations where people have looked and really like both, but are wanting to hear others opinions -- particularly people who own the phone -- to help make their decision.

    This is double true since, this time, all the fronts are black so, as many have pointed out, there isn't a huge difference if you put the phone in the case. In fact, with something like the Apple cases, you only see the stainless steel at the bottom, by the charging port and speaker/microphone holes, and the metal surrounding the camera -- you don't see any of the glass back.

    I believe, for many (and maybe most) there is no "wrong" choice, that most would be happy with either color. The difference ends up with details like if you can put up with the scratching of the silver stainless steel, or how much worry you might have that, if your phone is dropped or otherwise damaged, you might end up with some of the gray coating of the stainless steel flaking off.

    I like both. Ended up with black because that’s what was available but I think if I had to do it again I’d do the silver. It’s a close call for me, though. I like them both.
