White! After years of black phones, I've seen the light.

I had a white s3 so got the black s4 when it came out. I love it but still kind of miss the white. Let us know what you decide!

I picked up a white for myself but my son wanted a black one.

Other son gets one in August. He's undecided so far.

I'd honestly prefer a bigger selection of colors at one.

Got white because the black seemed like it would show fingerprints like crazy.

I spent 10 minutes in the Verizon store suffering over the decision. I went back and forth over this choice, but went to black. Ultimately it went into an black Otterboz Defender case so it didn't matter...

White seems like fingerprints and smudges don't appear very well as it would on a darker color such as black. Black is a nice color IMO, but if you want a color where smudges and fingerprints don't show up well get the white color.

I got the white one with AT&T, but now I am considering upgrading my blue S3 to a black S4 with VZW. I am just not sure that I want two S4's, so trying to wait for something else, but comparable to S4.

Black, of course! I find white really very common even with other phones.

I got a black one, but honestly it really isn't black. It's more of a graphite color and has that burlap looking pattern in it. My wife insisted on a black Note 2 and immediately bought a white flip cover for it (the flip cover replaces the back.) Go figure!!

Question White or Black?

Just curious which one is more popular. I prefer the black because the screen is seamless with the body. The black edge on four sides of the screen is noticeable on the white version.

Black Mist. Looks slick and elegant and I wanted a black Samsung for once as my S2 and S3 were white.

Got black 'cause my wife has a white S3. Plus, the all-black front (including the turned-off screen) looks cooler. The home button and the Samsung name at the top are a downer, though. The Galaxy Nexus still had a cooler look.

But I get better battery life with this one, so who cares!
