    Got to see all three colors in person yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised by the orchid gray. In person, to my eyes, it looked more like a deep gunmetal gray. It didn't have near the bright purplish tint that the marketing pics suggest. I'm happy with my arctic silver choice, too. Its the most "metallic" look of the three. I was disappointed in the midnight black to be honest. In person, the solid black made the phone look VERY cheap to me. Didn't look luxurious or high-end. In fact, it made it look like an old cheap glossy plastic phone. That said, I still think the coral blue would have blown away all three, had we been given that option in the US!

    Congrats!

    It would appear Best Buy has something screwed up with my order. Never had a problem with Best Buy before. I placed the order within the first 30 minutes of the pre-order going live, and still don't have any shipping notification, yet several folks on Android Central have already RECEIVED their phones from BB. Some who pre-ordered as late as last week, have already received their phones or at least shipping notifications. :mad:

    Well...Best Buy totally f**ked up my pre-order. :mad: I'll spare everyone the full rant, but I basically told them where to shove my order. :mad: What a colossal let down and waste of time that mess turned into. Last time I pre-order anything from BB, and that from a long time loyal (elite+ level) customer.

    Just got in a last minute "pre-order" direct thru Verizon to still hopefully get in on the pre-order promos. Shipping showing for Monday now.

    Best Buy seems to be doing that more and more, and not just with phones. I ordered speakers that were in stock and got the run around for more than two weeks when they didn't ship them. After contacting their corp headquarters it turns out they didn't charge me enough for them and they were hoping I would cancel the order. I refused and threatened to file a complaint with the PA State Attorney General's office (they have never failed me). The speakers got shipped the next day, nearly three weeks after I initially purchased them. I won't be shopping there anymore.
