    ..Plenty of the white ones but no blacks anywhere that I could find. Visited one store and called three others. Doesn't Samsung know that 99% of all early adopters are male and that men are going to want to buy the black phone?

    Any word on the future availability of a 32 Gig GS5?

    My Verizon store only had white in stock when I went to play with it on launch day. They said black sold out fairly quickly and only a few bought the white S5.

    Luckily for me I wasn't going to buy it in store because its much cheaper through a Comcast promo.

    When I picked mine up Friday, I got the 2nd to last black one. I've always had white phones until now and I'm enjoying the change. I also think the black felt better than the white.

    I completely agree, I had pre-ordered a white one and had it for a day until I felt a black one in my hand and fell in love with the feel of it. Traded in the white on a black on Friday

    If you buy the Folio cover from Samsung, it replaces the back cover plus gives you a front, flip cover with a window. It is colored black both back and front.

    The Costco I was at on Friday sold out of Verizon black S5s while I was there before noon buying a white T-Mobile S5. They still had some white Verizon S5s. Sprint S5s were still being unloaded in their receiving area and several people were waiting in line for them.

    I decided on a white phone in the hopes that if I put it on a table that I'd stand a better chance of seeing it before I left. Then I put a black/gray case on it, so the only white that's left is around the display.

    i kinda want to try a white one this time round. All my phones have been black; i have a Blue S3 right now. With white the different color back plates (Blue, Gold, etc) would look really nice.

    I really like the white so far (granted, it's only been a few days). My old phones have always been black as well.

    I was going to get a black one (TMO here in St Louis).. but wound up getting a white one instead, because i like the look better. Got a case with a clear back on it. There were still some black ones left here.

    "Felt better???"

    It's the exact same phone other than the color. If you closed your eyes there's no way to even tell the difference.

    I've read others say the material of the battery cover feels different.

    The black tends to be more of a softer material than white. If they made the white of the same material it would collect dirt and grime easier. Same thing happened with the z10s

    I had to call around to 4 different T-Mobile stores before I found one that had 1 left. All the BB's had nothing but white left too.

    After calling about a half dozen stores I went ahead and ordered it directly from Verizon Wireless. Will ship in two days.
