Poll results: What are your favorite Nexus 5X and 6P chassis colors?

Coming in Carbon, Quartz, and Ice Blue, the Nexus 5X strays away from the flashyexquisite red of its LG-made predecessor, introducing a more nuanced pastel color instead. With a renewed emphasis on design, Google also partnered with Huawei for an all-metal Nexus 6P, which comes in Aluminium, Graphite, and Frost colors, as well as a golden version, which, however, will only be hitting Japan for now

As a reminder, the 5X comes with a 5.2" 1080p display, Snapdragon 808 silicon, 2 GB of RAM, and a new 12.3 MP camera on the back that offers large, 1.55 micron pixels to rake in more light. 

The phone is built from polycarbonate, while the Nexus 6P, on the other hand, offers an "aeronautic-grade" aluminum chassis, Snapdragon 810, 5.7"WQHD Super AMOLED display, and the same unique 12.3 MP camera. We ran a quick poll yesterday which color would you pick, and the Nexus 5X respondents went overwhelmingly for the Carbon Black version, with the new Ice Blue a close second. The metal 6P is most preferred in stock aluminum color, though Graphite almost matched it in popularity, too.

Aluminium and gold 6P are sexy as hell, can't decide which one looks better. Same for 5X, mint and white look awesome but I think mint is more unique

The camera bulge isn't as bad as we feared, but I still prefer how the graphite hides it.

The aluminum looks dull compared to the frost color

Love the Ice Blue and Frost colors.... Most likely will end up with black versions. Bet that is what is what is offered by US Carriers. Everyone knows Verizon is boring- Black and white phones are it for them. With the Nexus 6 not being the beat-all sales devices, I bet all our carriers follow suit.
