Hi optimisticgurl

I moved this thread to a Galaxy S2 forum for you.

I don't know how accurate it is, but someone posted here recently the white ones had less problems than the Titanium according to a T-Mobile store employee.

I like my Titanium fine and never had a problem. The color doesn't really matter to me since I keep it in a case anyway.

I just got the Titanium S2 and I love it! I found a dark gray/black Body Glove case and the phone looks awesome in it.

I also have the titanium one.
It's just my opinion, but any scratches that would happen on a white one are more likely to show up over time as dirt gathers in those scratches. On a white one, it'll show that much better.

I have a titanium one too, in a black otterbox commuter case.and i agree.the black on grey looks really nice.

On that, I'd recommend titanium. My buddy has a white galaxy s3 he got a month or so before i got my s2 and he saw mine and told me he wished he'd gotten the same color.

Its your personal preference though

I have one of the gunmetal grey ones, like it better than the titanium (black) based on looks. And I personally hate white, but it's your own personal opinion that matters. I really doubt the color has any effect on the performance of the phone.

The white one looks really nice in a white case. You'd have more options for cases with the black. Black goes with everything.

I love my steel S2 (probably gunmetal) because neither the front camera nor the sensors show like they do on the white ones. Looks good in a plain black D3O case.

I also have the titanium. I think the touch keys look better on the Titanium and for me personally I prefer a black phone because it's less obtrusive and easier to match cases to. I think it's more of a personal preference though!

the white one looks way better and you can recognize it from far away, it looks way better than the titanium one, thats why i ordered mine online to be able to get the white one and it sure doesn't disappoint, everyone tells me that it looks nice and i just don't like how the titanium one looks. Plus its my first white phone and i love it, but its up to you.

Default Best Color to Android Phone White S2

I am voting for the white. I've had a white one for quite awhile and I like it better than all my other phones because I can see it easier day or night. I use it as a alarm clock and such, or at night its just easier to locate and i think its more attractive and fresh looking. The white stays nice and clean which was a concern I had when choosing it. I like the white. That's my $.02

Hey guys, I just got my new Galaxy S2 VM for my bday, decided on white and I love it. I originally came from an HTC Evo V (ugh before that I had the miserable motorola triumph). The HTC Evo V was a cool phone too but Samsung has a way amoled screen, 8 mega pixel camera and smooth touch screen. Thanks for helping me decide on the color. Oh and I also got this inexpensive Clear TPU Candy Rubber Skin Case from amazon Amazon.com: Clear TPU Candy Rubber Skin Case Cover for Samsung Epic Touch 4G Sprint Galaxy S II: Cell Phones & Accessories
