Windows Phone provides a set of colours (called accent colours) that the user can select to use as part of their handsets theme. It’s annoying enough when developers ignore the colour I have chosen and override it but it’s even worse when the colour they use is a few shades off the correct accent colour. When you look in the marketplace and see four different shades of windows phone blue it looks a bit rubbish.
I’ve compiled a list of the correct RGB and Hex colour codes after the fold as well as some sample colour tiles with the same details on for you to download and play with. Also, you should note that some of the colours have changed from v7.0 to v7.1 so I have included the old values in brackets for reference.
