All my apple fanboy friends were also impressed with the build quality. Also when the notification led lights up on an event it gives a beautiful glow from under the white skin. The led is not exposed on the outer side like HTC phones. It glows from within the skin.

As I said, white phones are for girls, lots of girls in our office all have white sgs2 phones, whilst every guy has a black one, the white one does look nice, but was told by my gf that i would look gay with a white one, so gone for the mans colour, blue phone does look stunning/different in all of the various videos.

You all make me laugh with your "white is for girls" and "white is gay" I've always had black phones and no-one's ever said "black is for blokes" or "black is for lesbians" or some other ridiculous statement. Just buy the colour *you* like best.

I agree with what you say, but there are colors that are more feminine then other, for example, my favorite color is purple which a lot of people consider to be a feminine color, and I'm a man and I'm straight. I've been hassled because this is my favorite color before, but I've never seen a girl hassled because her favorite color was red or something. With technology the color girls go for is usually white. But just because its white doesn't make it exclusively for girls or gay people it just comes down to opinion and what you like best.

For me I like darker colors and find white distracting so id go for the pebble blue one.

One of my friends who's male and straight also happen to really like purple, I don't think he gives a monkey about what other people might think. And yeah I prefer darker colours too! Frankly I've always ignored the gender typecasting thing ... For instance I love motosport... There's nothing quite like the sound of a racing car engine or a pit lane at night during a 24h race

Edit: and for anyone who doesn't following cycling, in the Giro d'Italia, the leader's jersey is pink. Somehow I don't think that implies that whoever happens to be wearing it is gay. Oh and the Lampre team colours also include a lot of a rather lurid shade of pink, yet the riders don't seem to have an issue wearing it.

So what you're trying to say is that all the 182 people who voted white are bent? Also, I think your office is a bit racist...and a bit sexist lol

Anyway as I said before I could barely see the brushed-metal finish on the pebble-blue at the PIN. If you tilt the back at the right angle, with enough light shining on it you will get to see it.

And yea as isadora said, I wouldn't give a crap if my gf told me which colour to get. But yea that's just me.
Ultimately, there are two points I consider;

1. It's my money.
And
2. Because it's my money, I do what I want.
