Default Which version are you going to get? White or black? 16 or 32?

With pre-orders coming to the US is less than two weeks, which version are you going to get?

White? Black? 16GB? 32GB? Which one?

I'm thinking of getting the black version in the 32GB storage option. Mainly because I need the space and I think that white would show too much dirt. But apparently Mr. Ed doesn't like the black version. I have no idea why and he hasn't said why.

Are you on Verizon? I have not heard any reports of Verizon getting this phone. Although I'm sure they will. I'll most likely get the black. I've never been a fan of white phones.

They are, their official twitter account tweeted about it on the day it was announced.

I'm sure they will be a couple of weeks behind everyone else on release dates though.

And I'm still unsure which color looks better. I will have to see them in person.

Nope, I'm going to be going to AT&T to get the phone. Verizon coverage is absolute shit where I am so I'm going to AT&T.

Least expensive model, I don't need much storage, most everything on my phone is stored in the cloud.

I'll be getting 32 or 64gb, and although I would usually go for black over white, they do seem to have managed to make the black finish look kinda bad. I am undecided on color.

How much does it usually cost more for each memory increment?

I'll get a black one for sure. Probably the 32gb, depending how much more it costs vs the 16gb. $100 more is about my limit for the extra memory, if it's more than that I'll just stick with the 16gb.

Really wish I could decide on a color, but ill probably end up getting the black one since I've had a white iPhone for a few years. But on storage, 16gb and will grab a 64gb micro sd card for it. Should end up being cheaper.

Black 64Gb..... What?! Surely Verizon will offer it! That is a summary of my feelings.

I think I'm going to get the black one and then put a white back on it (might be a convenient excuse to get the wireless charging cover) The black back cover doesn't look so nice in the videos imo, looks too much like the S3's blue pebbleness. The white back looks sexy, however on the front it would distract me and theoretically be part of the colors I would use for my homescreen wallpaper in a sense. Black goes with everything.

I had heard that att was going to be $249 for the 16 gb but I guess they just clarified that the 16 gb will be $199 and the 32 will be $249. Pretty sweet!

YesYeah, I know. I'm going to be getting the 32 GB version of the phone. Now to choose either black or white.

I'm going to have the phone in a case anyways for protection. I could use a black case and get the white phone and have a cool black/white look.

EDIT
On second thought, if I'm going to just put it into a black case then why not just get black for a sleek industrial black look.

I'm going with the 16GB T-Mobile model.

I'm leaning towards the white color more but I'm going to have to look at them in person to make my final choice.

I was 100% sure I wanted black but that white is starting to look real tasty.
Now I'm undecided

Baldi, is that case shipping now or is it a pre-order?
You got a link for it?
Thanks.

Our Verizon pre orders will probably start when other US carriers already have devices. Word.

Getting the 16gb on T-Mobile and load up a 32-64 gb sd card in it. I only see them selling the white version but if they are going to sell the black version, I'm on it.

black 32 on sprint. can't believe they are still making 16gb flagship phones.
we should be at 64/128 by now as standard.

Maybe they should stop adding cores and resolution and start working on storage for the s5.

I'm gonna be using mine on AT&T, but I absolutely want an unbranded one. Color will be black, but I'm undecided on memory. Will probably go for 64GB + 64GB microSD.

Whatever version t-mobile gets. I gotta get a 64GB SDXC card though. That's a must. Screen protect it, case it and no worries.

I don't think it is. It's the best looking GS4 case I have seen so far.
