Black is users' favorite color when it comes to phones, followed by white
Now, that's not exactly what we'd call a surprise, but anyways, it appears that people's favorite color for a phone is... black. At least that is the conclusion we can make from our improvised survey of 2518 PhoneArena readers, which is actually not that bad of a sample.

So, we asked you earlier this week which is your favorite color for a phone, and black has won with a convincing 34.63% of all votes. Your second favorite color is white, which has gotten 23.55% of the votes.

Now that we've cleared these two most popular ones, it'd be very interesting to see how the remaining ones rank. According to the results of our poll, the third most attractive color for a phone is cyan (8.98%), closely followed by blue (6.87%), dark grey (6.71%) and red (6.39%). At the bottom of the chart are pink (1.23%), magenta (0.91%) and, finally, brown (0.64%).

Well, that's how your color preferences stand at the end of 2012, guys - mostly black, white and a bit of cyan. And what is the color of the device that you currently use?

Full results follow below!

wow Wonder what happened to the ol' silver from late 90's early 2000's? From what I seen in my lifetime, things were black, then silver/grey, then black again, maybe white is next?

And this is why manufacturers don't make phones of any other colors anymore. But like I said, I applaud Nokia and even HTC for making different colored phones when it comes to that WP8 models.

Funny how the GS3 doesn't even come in Black(until very recently only for VZW). Fail.

Why would you say it doesn't come in black, and then say it does come in black in parentheses? That's a terrible way to construct a sentence.

Black/white,i guess it actually depends on how well build a phone is to suit these two colours

I believe Lumia 800/900 have something to do with Cyan making it as 3rd favourite.
