I have a "blue" OMG all day as well, and yes in most lighting conditions it looks purple to me. I fixed it with some metallic flecked dark blue spray paint. I love it now! Just be sure to cover the battery compartment treads with painters or masking tape, cover the carto threads and post (I used a carto condom and a small clamp to secure it in place) before spraying...also don't forget to cover the button with painters or masking tape. When finished, don't forget to clear the small vent hole of any leftover paint.
