    I originally planned to get blue but after looking at both for awhile online I got a white one. For some reason to me at least white just makes it look nice IMO than the blue. Plus with the QC issues they were having with blue, don't want to take any chances.

    haha when did white become a female color? I see a lot of people saying this. A bit outlandish, really. It's not iphone white its an off color white. It's not like someone who has dark skin and bleeched their teeth white. Sheesh.

    Yeah I don't think white is a female color. I have a lot of friends with white phones and I think I know one or two girls maybe that have white phones.

    I ordered the blue, but the white is nice too. Doesn't really matter since most of us will have cases on the phones anyway.

    My first case will be a cheap clear one from ebay. I already ordered it. Something to get me by until I see what Seidio has to offer. I just wish they offered a clear case. I like the look of the blue.

    Ended up with white, but would have prefered blue, 1-2 week wait for Blue.

    I'm happy with it though, just need to get a case on there and screen protector now...

    Not sure whether to get this phone in pebble blue or marble white!

    The pebble blue looks pretty nice and is different, and I like how the front and back are more grey-ish blue. But my big problem is that the edges look meh, and the home button looks absolutely awful, almost purple, and doesn't match anything else on the phone.

    The white looks incredible, but my concerns are that the white border will be distracting while watching video and that the notification light will be very bright and bleed, illuminating a lot of the top left of the phone.

    I've watched a bunch of videos and still can't really tell. To anyone who has the phone already, what are your thoughts?

    Hi there,

    I had black or blue phones all my life (Nokia 3310, Nokia 6810, N95, N98, I8910, SGS2 - these I can remember). This time with the SGS3 recall of the blue model I decided to risk and got the white one. I can tell you that may be I was skeptical the first 1-2 days, but now I wouldn't change it for blue even if they give me 100 Euro extra. It looks stunning, fresh, summery, clean and etc. On top of that the metal like surface on the side of the phone is making this phone stand out 10 times more than the blue model.
    I believe that if you get the white one you will not regret it.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi, I have the white version, it gives off a much more top end quality look than the blue (In my opinion.:p) and no there are no distractions with the white border when watching video.
    Cheers.

    I pre-ordered the white one because I'm looking for something different from the traditional Verizon Black Droid phones which I've had for the past several years. And also because you know what you're getting with the white version. I still don't know what the US blue version will look like. Metallic? Purple? Peeling issues? etc. I just don't know what it will look like. If you get the white and then see that the blue is super-cool, then you can try to switch over within the return period.

    One other thing is that I assume the white will garner a bit more attention as well (which may or may not be a good thing).

    Either way, it looks like a sweet phone. Good luck with your decision!

    I am curious if the glossy white has reflection issues when mounted on a windshield. You may not know but figured I would ask. :)

    I ordered the blue. It looks awesome in sunlight, and the sides seem to shine a nice blue also in sunlight. The white is nice, but to antiseptic too me. Don't like kitchen and hospital colors personally.

    Besides white reminds me too much of the white iPhone craze I've seen so many of my iPhone friends get caught up in. :confused:

    I have the same issue. I have pre-ordered this blue version. The edges have more intense violet like color and the home button has a different color as well. Now I have noticed that little bit of dust entering through the edges especially through the gaps in the home button. I m thinking to sell this color off and planing to get a white phone.

    I pre ordered the blue, but I can always change colors within 14 days. I'm just going to ask if they have an white in stock even though I didn't pre order it.

    My phone will serve daily duty in a car dock on my dash. White makes a HORRIBLE reflection in my window. I put white paper on my DX on the dash. The black DX is almost invisible, but when covered in white, wow, it is very distracting. I ordered blue. That aluminum strip that is not on the blue model, while looking nicer than without, would also give a bad reflection in the window.
    If it weren't for the daily window duty, I'd have went white.

    As in many things, you probably know which one is safer, and which one you think would would be cooler to have. But look at it the other way. If it turns out NOT to be what you thought it would be, which are you more likely to regret.

    That's how I chose car colors, house painting choices, lots of stuff.

    For me, the white is the shizzle, but I'd rather be safer and go with the blue.

    I'll be getting a pebble blue one. I've never had a white phone, nor do I want one. It just seems like a white bezel would be too distracting. And I'll probably cover the phone with a TPU case anyway...
