I bought white. Wish it came in black though.
The LED bleeding from the capacitive touch buttons doesn't bother me as much as the off coloring of the home button on the blue. Idk why that bugs me so much. The white doesn't shown finger prints on the back as much either. I have yet to see the red one in person.

Here's an update to my previous post about the LED lights bleeding through the white face. In my previous post I posted a pic of the bleed through on the capacitive touch buttons. In this pic the blue GS3 is on the left and the white GS3 is on the right and the bleed through on the notification LED (charging) is quite pronounced:

I would get the white one better, but mostly because I don't like the slight metallic look of the blue one. I think it was unique of Samsung to come out with a blue and white phone instead of black, but I think it may have been a mistake because I know a lot of people who wants just a plain black one, especially guys.

Actually................ after much deliberation.............. I've completely changed my mind and now think that the marble white looks better.

I exchanged my white 32gb for a blue today and I am fairly still on the fence. I would really like a black phone but that's only personal opinion.
However my grip is that on this new blue phone the menu button is very difficult to press....as in it feels like it is fully pressed but then when the button is very much below the rest of the screen only then it clicks the micro switch. It drives me nuts thinking I press the menu button and nothing happens!
When that same press on the white more than was enough to make up the micro switch.
Has Any one else experience this?

Yea I was afraid of that. There is only like three or four Best Buy stores around here that have the blue 32GB in stock all of which are more than 20 miles away.
Or I could try and get another white 32gb?

Unfortunately Best Buy says there stock number for the 32gb in blue has been deleted in the system so when they sell out that's it no more stock. There were just gonna order another one and that wasn't the case.

Ladies and gents, I tried the white one but as a banker, I just couldn't get comfortable with it. I wasn't a fan of how the soft keys were washed out as well. The main reason I didn't want the blue was because of the battery cover (even tho I know I can cover it up with a black case). It's as if the blue one has three different hues of blue with the back being the worse in my opinion, plus it's a finger print magnet. I found some battery covers on ebay that would help make your phone unique, whether you go with a white one or a blue one. Plus, you lose the carrier's name as well. And I JUST found a blue carbon fiber one on there. Most of the ones on there are black, white, and various other colors and they come in all metal, metal trimmed with plastic, etc. This link is for the Pebble Blue battery cover and this link is for a variety of battery covers for either phone. You have to be patient tho because the covers will come from overseas. Happy hunting.

i kinda like the bleeding it makes the led seem more bright and therefore can be seen more easily. which is what an led notifier is supposed to do which is to get your attention

Personally, I love the blue. It goes great with the case I got for it and for some reason, it just looks more sleek to me!

At first look I was all about the blue. Then after looking at them for about a week I decided I really liked the white. I think a lot of people go blue because its different.

The led is more than bright enough on my blue. I have to turn off the blinking notification at night 'cause the darn thing wakes me up! I swear, who needs a night light when you have an SIII?

Seriously though, I love the chameleon like quality of the blue.

Blue rules! I had the white, but returned it. It seemed gaudy to me (no offense whiters) and reminded me of an iPhone on steroids. Also, the display contrast is better with the blue.

I would have preferred a more "standard" color like the Razr, but it is what it is.

Verizon has announced black and brown coming very soon. I have the white front and blue back. May switch to the new black or gray back at some point.
