    I don't know how I didn't notice but the Slate Grey OP5 is actually purple. Indoors it appears black but when I'm outside the device appears purple. We're any of you guys surprised by this? Not that I'm complaining, purple is my favorite color. Im confused by the name choice though, it's not grey in any sense of the word lol.

    I was surprised, and personally didn't like it at all. Was the reason I returned the phone, maybe I'll get a midnight black one later.

    Slate does not really look that purple. And on the website it looks grey.

    Here is an example of how it looks in daylight. That thing in the back is a grey iPad Smart Cover. In real life it can look even more extreme, depending on the lighting. If you want something grey/black get the midnight black model.

    Not bad, I thought you meant like a dark purple, purple. I can live with that, especially since I am getting a red case for it anyway.

    Yeah it's just a taste question, but the product pictures on the website obviously don't reflect that hue.

    In my case, the Slate Grey colour looks as or a little less black than the Mighnight Black model.

    Well it is not really about agreeing. Mine has a purple tint. Yours might not.

    Alright alright. The thing is slate grey as a color looks more like a slightly blue-ish grey, which was what I expected, similar to space grey (Apple), just darker.

    Heh, to be fair I think this is similar to that blue/white-gold dress from a year back or so. It all depends on the light and I suppose also once's own eyes.
    I still need to buy an OP5 but am disappointed by the lack of more colour options ;) Black / slate are both rather dull to me :)

    Yeah, it depends a lot on the lighting, but to be honest mine looks a little bit purple in every light so far. But since I am more of a black/white and grey person, I think I prefer midnight black. I would love if they would release a silver version with black front, like the Nokia 6. That's probably my favourite color combination. Also red and blue would be cool, seem like the new standard colors in phones these days anyway.

    There's no accounting for taste :D --- Personally I'd be delighted with a (metallic) purple or blue colour. Gold would be nice too ;)
