Which is your favorite color for a phone?

Which is your favorite color for a phone?
"Which is your favorite color for a phone?" It's almost as if the question sounds a bit out of place nowadays, when most of the handsets come out in only one color, which is black, most of the times, but a recent push by Microsoft and its WP8 is trying to make life a bit more colorful for those of us that are closely following the mobile biz.

After the dark age (literally) of smartphone design, it is mainly thanks to the new Nokia Lumias and HTC Windows Phones that we once again discover that a phone may look well in something other than black or grey. Hoping that this ongoing trend is to continue, we wanted to ask you which color do you like most for a phone. Of course, it can depend on the specific design of the model to an extent, and sometimes a phone may look best in a combination of colors, but for the purposes of this poll, let's just stick to main colors, m'kay?

Since black goes so well with everything else, and since most of you will probably just pick black, being the safest and most neutral color for a cell phone, we've simply decided to remove it from the list. Just kidding, black is there for all of us who don't want our phones to have more personality than we do. Also, please note that we'll omit choices such as "crimson red," "midnight blue," and "ceramic white." We understand that some think those are perfectly real colors, but it's just that if we try to include them all, it'd make for one really long (and meaningless) list.

I think an iPhone 5 with a nice Navy aluminum backing would be HOT! Masculine & classy, if you ask me.

Anything in blue!!! Not too dark, not too bright. Something in the lines of the Galaxy S3 Pebble Blue or the LG Rumor 2 Blue. I'm just a Blue type of guy lol. Black/Blue is what I crave.

Why BLACK? I prefer White... but actually its all personal preference. BLACK Phones= Classy and elegant. White= Trendy Greys= Sort of business class. Other bright colours (yellow, red, green, etc) = youthful and energetic :\

I always thought people with white phones are mostly meticulous and tidy, but not really trendy.. Trendy should come with the last one.. I personally prefer Blue, but black is nice too.. Black/Red, Black/Blue or Black/Green would be better than monotone, though..

Even though Black is my favorite color, I've always wanted a red phone!

Red. I'd love a red iPhone 5 with the brushed aluminum. That would look sweet, or a red note 2 would also look sweet.

I love white phones, would have loved for that htc droid dna to come in white. White is so pure and beautiful. As much as i dislike apple, I think there i phone 5 is the most beautiful designed white phone on the market.

It depends on the phone, really. I picked black, but I think the Galaxy S3 looks best in that red color. The phone itself matters more than the color.

So far, I vote for gray on the Galaxy Note 2 and cyan on Lumia 920!

I forgot black slate on the new iPhone 5! I pick color based on how it looks on the phone itself, just like buying a car. Also, it depends on the paint itself. There are different types of black or grey

Like how the black screen looks 'grey' on the above-mentioned phone

actually it really depends on the phone design. but i would choose white as it tends to stand out more when people look at it from a distance. i could be wrong though, just my opinion

White. Both my GS2 AND GS3 are white and look great! :)

I select orange if they were a second choice it would be Yellow I want multicolor phones and i don't like to have a white phone. it will drive sales for companies if they ALL PUT MULTICOLOR phones too match everyone's personality instead of spending lots of money on color cases.
