    Black or White for the Nexus 5? What are you going to pick? I'm thinking White personally.

    Definitely Black.

    I hate phones which are half attempt at white. If it's going to be white at least make the sides white and preferably the bezel too,

    I completely agree ^. If a phone is going to be white then I really wish it would just be all white like in the fake renders of the Nexus 5. I don't why manufacturers feel it necessary to two-tone the phones with a black front and white back. It just doesn't make sense. I would definitely go black.

    I'm getting White. Black phones get boring after 4 years. Time for a change. :p

    I am getting the nexus and I am getting it in White. Black for the material used based on the many rumors is certainly beautiful but white stands out a little more in my opinion. Its also a very nice touch that the front of the phone is black so videos will most likely blend in better and it will give the impression that the screen is even bigger. Its almost like getting the best of bot worlds with the white

    Black here. It's just what I like. I'm excited to see all these folks going for white. Improves my chances at getting one whenever they get around to releasing it. :)

    The panda look is definitely bit half-****ed .. but hey: it's cheap :D

    Having said that, if I was going to get an N5 (and have to say: I'm getting tempted), I would definitely go for the badger version. Just for a change.

    Well .. it makes sense to the manufacturer as they only have to make one type of front panel - plus Apple famously struggled to get white to work properly on the glass on one of their earlier phones.

    Black for me, for sure. I'm not a fan of the white speaker grill that the white version has.

    I would most likely go with the white. the black seems like it would be easy to scratch if its anything like the New Nexus 7. white may do better in that sense

    Black, the white version isn't very appealing to me. Especially when I would likely cover it up with a case.

    For me it all depends on the finish. If matte, I like black better, if glossy, I prefer white.

    I like the White one , only because almost all of my phones have been black. The white back is different but will [robably be in a protective case.

    I like the white one, especially when the front is not, so it doesn't ruin the look.

    I really don't care about the color. As I usually hit or let my N4 fall, accidentally of course, the original color will not be visible after I cover it with any rugged case.

    True, I had the white galaxy nexus a year ago, and still look freaking good!
    Still will have to wait to see it first.

    Definitely black. Don't like the panda look at all. If you're going to do white, do the whole thing white. I love the stealth look of the black one.

    but my last white phone looked like an old newspaper by after about three months. I'm not sure I can resist the temptation though.

    I'm guessing he means that scratches will show up more on a black case.

    Personally I wish they'd just make one color, then you can just buy a case of the color you want to present. Would give them better control of the stock too.
