    White.

    My last black phone was the iPhone 5S purchased October of last year.

    Black is just kind of dreary and hides the shapes and contours of the device

    Each phone looks better or worse in certain colors.

    One color I am surprised we don't see more of, is the matte dull gray color. Nokia Lumia 920 had that gray, was only available outside the U.S. and IMO it was amazing looking. A good middle ground between the common black and white.

    I think white looked best on the older iPhone 4 / 4S. And black looks best on Nexus phones.

    The glacial silver color on the HTC One M7 / M8 is great too.

    Black: classic
    White: girly not because white targets women, its a neutral color but women target white color as their favorite smartphone color
    White phones look prettier than black, dont you think?

    Black usually. However, if another blue 6c were to show up, I'd definitely get that!

    I flip flop. I'm naturally drawn to white phones. However I don't mind black and if I'm forced to get black due to white being unavailable I end up preferring black in the end. I think white looses its allure after time but black always looks sleek and classic.

    Black for the most part. You can't go wrong with black.

    I like white too, but I tend not to go with white nowadays. This is because the front senors and led notification are too obvious on white smartphones.

    I also pick red in the poll, cause I loved the maroon red color that my S3 had.

    Smartphone colors, which one do you prefer?

    Depends on 1. The device 2. My mood. 3. Availability

    Generally for me some devices look better in certain colors. However what I end up choosing to buy is often governed by availability. Often if there are multiple colors available, I find the distribution and availability of those can be extremely limited to the point where only 1 color may actually be available openly to me for purchase.

    Always black. The white phones look ugly any way.

    I usually prefer either black or white, I don't care for many of the other colors that are out there.

    Though, if/win I get another iPhone, it will be a gold 6S+ next year.

    I think Apple gold is quite a looker, especially on the 5/5S.

    I have a white phone but I know what you mean I changed all my paper to black. I also won't read a book or a newspaper unless its black. All my toilet roll I changed to black and I won't wear any white t shirts. Im even thinking of getting my skin died because I'm white its such a hindrance to my happiness cause I just feel all girly.

    Black.

    I nearly got my Note 4 in White, but really preferred Black, same with S4. My Sony Ericsson W800i Walkman Phone was White and Orange back in 2005, was pretty awesome, had my Galaxy S2, S3 and iPad in White to, but got over it.

    WRT colours like Green, Red etc... I think Nokia did a great job with for example the N8, mine was Lime Green, looked great thanks to the metal body and chrome accents, and the Lumias look good in those bright colours.

    Never been a fan of Gold, be it the Gold Note 4, iPhones etc...

    My last two phones have been white because and I think it shows the design off better. Black is too feminine for me.

    black

    but it depends on the phone. black is easy to use with covers/cases too.

    I prefer black but some of the vibrant colors on the Lumia were appealing to me as well.
