    Hi optimisticgurl :hello:

    I moved this thread to a Galaxy S2 forum for you.

    I don't know how accurate it is, but someone posted here recently the white ones had less problems than the Titanium according to a T-Mobile store employee.

    I like my Titanium fine and never had a problem. The color doesn't really matter to me since I keep it in a case anyway.

    I just got the Titanium S2 and I love it! I found a dark gray/black Body Glove case and the phone looks awesome in it.

    I also have the titanium one.
    It's just my opinion, but any scratches that would happen on a white one are more likely to show up over time as dirt gathers in those scratches. On a white one, it'll show that much better.

    I have a titanium one too, in a black otterbox commuter case.and i agree.the black on grey looks really nice.

    On that, I'd recommend titanium. My buddy has a white galaxy s3 he got a month or so before i got my s2 and he saw mine and told me he wished he'd gotten the same color.

    Its your personal preference though :)

    I have one of the gunmetal grey ones, like it better than the titanium (black) based on looks. And I personally hate white, but it's your own personal opinion that matters. I really doubt the color has any effect on the performance of the phone.

    The white one looks really nice in a white case. You'd have more options for cases with the black. Black goes with everything.

    I love my steel S2 (probably gunmetal) because neither the front camera nor the sensors show like they do on the white ones. Looks good in a plain black D3O case.

    I also have the titanium. I think the touch keys look better on the Titanium and for me personally I prefer a black phone because it's less obtrusive and easier to match cases to. I think it's more of a personal preference though!

    You won't regret it if you do, it's saved me from having plenty of nicks and possibly a shattered screen ;)

    I wanted the dark phone but tmobile was out of stock, me being impulsive decided on the white one. I like it and get a lot of compliments on how nice it looks :)
