Yeah... it definitely wasn't the hottest color and few people had it. But at the time I bought it, it was a nice change of pace from the bland blacks and "apple whites". But the white look has grown on me and this phone is already been sold on eBay. I then bought a used White G1 from craigslist and am loving it!
I love my bronze G1. Its smooth looking, doesn't show cracks, scratches and bumps as much as the white G1 shows, its twin color, bronze and light brown with orange keys. Looks very unique since everyone around here has black and the small majority has white.
