Here’s what the color of your smartphone says about you
Cyan, fuchsia, yellow... we’re not talking about fashion here, unless it’s smartphone fashion. In a greyish universe of mobile devices, Nokia is bringing a splash of color as one of the biggest differentiators for its Lumia Windows Phone series, but interestingly enough the color of your smartphone actually reveals more about your personality than you might think. Well, at least if we take the conveniently overgeneralized perception of color below.

With that healthy sense of doubt, here’s what the smartphone colors actually say about you as a personality.

Cyan is for the thinker as the color itself is very balanced, so it’s likely that happy people would pick a cyan device.

“However, it has all sorts of properties because it’s such an interesting combination of colors. It communicates that you know what you’re doing and that you’ve thought things through. The color red acts on the physical, but blue acts on the intellectual and it helps you to focus your thoughts and clear your mind,” according to the head of London-based Color Affects company.

White on the other hand is for the sophisticated person, one with high standards.

“White is all colors totally reflected, so if you’re wearing white clothes you’re actually creating a quite powerful barrier. It’s sort of ‘touch me not’, but in the case of smartphone it’s manifests itself as: ‘don’t touch this, it’s mine!’,” now Nokia informs us.

Fuchsia (yes, that’s a color too) characterizes the “angry lady,” is the color of “militant feminism.” Talk about your phone as a gateway for people to assess you!

And finally black is the color of the protector as it itself has all colors contained in it. It’s a safe choice. Others say it underlines more the hardware sophistication of a phone.

What color is your phone and do you agree with the message the experts above say it brings?

I have black/gray devices normally (though my first phone had a dark blue accent). However, there's usually not much choice when it comes to phone color anymore, so color hardly matters as much to me as simply getting a good phone.

I wish more manufacturers gave the option of different colors. I like to not be grounded on just black/grey.

Black or White are the most common choices these days.

I got white Samsung GS2 and black HTC One S
( I hope the manufacturers will come up with more color choices in the future, black, grey or white are becoming very boring )
The only way to jazz up your phone this days is to buy different case cover.
