    So what color do you guys prefer for the one x? What are the pros and cons of each?

    White.
    Only con I can think of is it may show up a bit more dirt and finger marks than the grey but when it looks 100x better then is it really that important? They all get dirty some time.
    Plus get yourself a nice clear case and you have nothing to worry about.

    Went for the grey, but given the case I have, it wouldn't have mattered if I'd got white, you can hardly see the phone.

    White stands out way more than the gray version of course, but staining is a problem once again with the white device. Especially near the area where the phone touches your ear while on a call. Mine has stained to a light pinkish gray already, the color just seems off where the front camera is. Definately taking it to HTC and see if they have a solution to clean it off.

    I went for the grey, but the white sort of highlights the screen and looks so much better. But I would never have a white phone, I don't even get white tee- shirts. I have an inability to keep clean, held over from childhood :)

    White, and im glad i did, looking at the two side by side in the shop it was an easy decision for me. Also wanted a change from the desire which was grey

    Grey for me since it was the only one going for $49 @RS.

    Even if given the choice, I would still choose grey. Much more manlier in appearance.

    I went with white too. It looks a lot nicer and I put it in a case and screen protector anyways so getting it dirty isn't much of an issue.

    I went for grey, have you ever seen what happens to white plastic if you have read a newspaper & then picked it up afterwards.

    Picking up a white one on Sunday! :-D

    I think it looks much more striking and I'm all stocked up on pocket sized microfiber cleaning cloths.

    i picked up the white. it just looked so good to me!
    but it inevitable that it will stain. i just know it.. i have a White PS3 controller and it's stained from all the long hours of gaming. but then again i take care of my phones better than my controllers...
    and i don't wanna put a case on the phone because i like the look of it without one.

    I chose grey, due to concerns you mention.
    However I now wish I had picked the white case, as I agree it looks better

    I have the white phone, even with brand new jeans on i did not get any staining. However it sounds like i just got lucky. On the first one x i had there was some yellow/green staining around the earpiece. However that rubbed off to a perfect finish with a wet finger. So far with my new one no staining anywhere on the device.

    i dont know what people are doing with their white ones to get them so filthy. My white One X goes in and out of my blue or black jeans pockets multiple times a day, every day - i have had it since launch and it is still sparkly white with no blemishes...
