    I decided to go with the white one... There will be a case on it so only the front will be visable. Here was some of my reasoning if it helps anyone out in the future:

    FOR WHITE
    The captive buttons do have a little light bleed but I actually like the glow it gives
    I have never owned a white phone and it really pops
    The details of the phone stand out more
    It looks bigger than it actually is

    AGAINST WHITE
    Only the expensive Samsung HDMI dock comes in white (I am OCD like that)
    There is a definate distinction between where the screen ends and where the case begins

    I have the gray, wish I had white. Not sure why. Guess it's the fact that every phone I've had was a dark color.

    I have the white and LOVE it. Sick of black and to me the Titanium was too close to black.

    exactly why I got the white the other day. SO happy I went with white, wouldnt change anything. Plus I like the looks of the black/white cases with the white bezel. I think the OP made the right choice. At first I was worried about the white bezel for watching movies etc, (big home theater guy and i would never mask my screen wall with WHITE since you will lose the POP effect, BUT doesnt happen with this phone. Its perfect to me)

    Hey it's all opinion.

    My opinion is that the hideous light bleed on the capacitive buttons would guarantee I'd never pick white. Not to mention it looks far too much like an iDerp device.

    But to each his own.

    Agreed as well. I have my cap button's light turned off totally and would with any phone. Glad the option is there.

    I am the same way, small stuff like my charger and usb cable not matching the color of my phone or a mismatched dock would just irritate me to no end. Gotta stay fresh

    I know you're talking Note 2 here, but I have the white GS3 and although I absolutely LOVE the Blue color, I bought mine used for a good price and I have loved the white so far. It's different. And although it does subtly remind you and others of iDevices, it still looks amazing. I also love the light bleed effect. To me it looks almost intentional even though I know it isn't, and it looks cool. I absolutely LOVE the light bleed on the notification light because it gives it a 'fading out' effect instead of one small piercing stab of light.

    My brother has the Gray Note 2, and it is an incredible looking piece of hardware, but a guy I know in my neighborhood has the white one, and I prefer the white. The good news is, if different people buy different colors, it will encourage Samsung to continue offering various colors on their future devices. Thank heavens we all don't like the same exact thing eh?

    I never noticed the light bleed until today and for my phone you practically have to be sitting in a totally dark room to see it so for me it's NOT an issue.

    I had a white OG Evo and loved it. My coworker has an Icrap and my phone looks nothing like it. My phone is over 2x the size of her tiny little phone.
