There's no doubt in our minds that the Pebble Blue offering is the much more attractive option, as the Marble White looks similar to a low-end Galaxy Mini or similar – the brushed effect is really necessary

Am still optimistic to see a pebble blue 16 gb version somewhere in this whole india and will probably slap a 64 gb sdxc over it.
My Take on your points:
> Spreading of LED color.
It spreads a bit but LED looks more sexy on White.
> The whole mobile looks huge due to visible bezels.
I dont like Blue Bezel, if bezel would have been in other color that would have been amazing..
> Most of the themes wont match the white bezels.
May Be..
> Might loss the shine
I dont agree, Blue may loose its shine and scratches would be more visible on the blue one as its a dark color. White cars look sexy for ages and even the scratches are less visible. :P
> Capacitive button touch lights wont be visible.
But looks Very nice, white lights on white background. And when lights are of, Black buttons look even more sexy..
> Contrasting black dots(camera,sensor) in the right top corner.
I like.. Thats why i am going for white, i like the layout and sensors being visible..
> Scratches will be more visible than blue.
-1
I have seen a scratched back cover on some site, and on blue it was looking really bad.. It was some preview from launch event on 3rd may.


These are my personal likings though..

Yeah, but I think it doesn't spread so much as the video demo is showing. But, he also mentions that it looks just as good.

The problem is that, Normal human mentality, EVERYONE WANTS THE THING THAT IS NOT IN STOCK OR NOT AVAILABLE..
If there would have been less supply of Marble White, Same would have happened..

Just Chill and Enjoy.. TGIF!!!

Even I didn't see any spread of led on the verge video..
Reasons for blue..
*looks elegant with the bezel
*and y wont themes match the white..I think it would look cool..
*are u kidding me..scratches and fingerprints will be more visible in d blue... unless u break the back..lol.. in which you can hide more better with blue
*most of the people will eventually buy blue..
Lol@disclamer..

Still another disclamer: copy and paste of bala's post..just replace white with blue..
Htc one > galaxy s4 - sold >Galaxy s3 - sold> Galaxy note - sold >galaxy s2- confiscated > HTC sensation- sold > HTC desire hd - sold > galaxy s- sold`

The Blue one IMO is very unattractive..
If a phone has to be blue it has to use the blue shade and metallic blue feeling from he Xperia arc series..
S3 in blue is fake metallic brush..
