    I have the Prism White S10+. There's no doubt that it's a striking color for this great phone. According to a local Best Buy, it's the best selling color. But I must ask: those of you that have any of the other colors, what made you choose yours? I'm getting a $135 gift card from Best Buy in the mail for the trouble I had being sent a retail box with a used, broken tape seal. I'm trying to decide if I want to put it towards an exchange to get a different color. As a female, I was so sure that I wanted to get the Flamingo Pink, but when I saw it in person, it was quite a bold, loud color; I wasn't sure it was for me.

    Prism Blue is a nice color too, but I feel like it's a standard color for smartphones, regardless of the hue. Prism Black is another standard color, but it does come with the matte black charger, cable and headphones, which I prefer. I still pine for the Prism Green color. It's really beautiful, with it's green/blue color shift. But it's not available here in the US, so that's out. Anyway, are you happy with your color choice? What would you do, in my shoes?

    As far as Best Buy's price match guarantee, Amazon has the Flamingo Pink US unlocked S10+ for $899, which is the same price that Best Buy is offering it for, with activation. The difference is, Amazon isn't charging for tax and shipping to my area code, while Best Buy did. If I was to show them the Amazon listing, would they adjust the price accordingly if I exchanged for the Flamingo Pink?

    Prism green is such a pretty color but unfortunately not available in the US. I have the ceramic white which I think is a beautiful phone. I do not care for the prism white at all though most people seem to love it. Honestly, only you know what color you will be happy with and no one can pick a color for you.

    As far as Bestbuy and Amazon goes if the price is the same there is nothing for them to price match and I’m doubtful that Bestbuy will allow you to not pay taxes on a purchase in a state that requires it. If paying the taxes is an issue then your only option is Amazon.

    Good luck with your decision.

    I loved the prism green at 1st but of course we didn't get in. Originally when me and my husband both ordered from Samsung it was Prism White. I cancelled my order and went to Best Buy due to no two trade ins in the same household. I ended up choosing Flamingo Pink I liked it and thought it was different even though I still love the white. I do use one clear case just to show it off and another case where you can't see the phone color I switch around. Only downside was it took 2-3 extra weeks to get the pink. I get comments about it being pretty all the time. I love it! My girlfriend just got an S10 Prism Blue when we switched to Verizon she needed a new phone and is on our account she liked it. But yes it's different for everyone.

    I have ceramic white. I picked that color because it shows less fingerprints than the ceramic black.

    I have a black S10+. The only reason is because that's what was available on Facebook marketplace. Lol. The S10 that i had before getting the plus was prism white. I miss that color. Looked great in a clear Speck case. Oh well....

    What's funny is that when I talked to a rep from Best Buy in Brooklyn, she told me that six of the Flamingo Pink were in stock there, and that they don't seem to be selling, when compared to the Prism colors. So I'm trying to decide if I should haul my butt over from Queens to snag one, since my local store doesn't carry it.

    Apparently so. The only ones I saw on display were the Prism phones. I guess it has to do with demand, at least partly. Prism Blue is nice, up close.

    Yeah, the Prism White is selling the most, followed by the Prism Black and Blue.

    Yes Prism white is the most popular I heard too. But I love my Flamingo Pink. Some said back when mine was on back order either it was so popular they all sold so fast or maybe they didn't think it would be such a good seller so they didn't make enough. I don't know but I love mine! Good Luck with whatever you decide it's a great phone. I love it!

    Weren't you concerned about the build date being "fresh"? If so, then the colors that are not selling as well will have older build dates.

    I'm ahead of you on that, which is another reason why I'm considering the Prism Black, along with the fact that the cables are color matched.

    Yeah reading through the comments I was waiting for someone to say something about this. I'm surprised there's a store with 6 of them. In the Best Buy pre-order thread there was someone just a couple or maybe a few weeks ago that was still waiting for that pink color, from pre-order. I think it did better than they thought it would.

    I got the prism white, mostly because I've had a lot of black phones. Once got one black trimmed in red, that was nice. Recently had a Blue see thru phone, which did get some attention at the Verizon store every time I went in. When I saw the white though I just felt it was the one. I never got to see one in person but there was video where all they did was show and name the colors of the S10 line. I will say that when I first got it I really saw the white but these days the more I look at it the more blueish it seems. I guess being a prism color it shifts but it really doesn't seem white to me anymore. Maybe the ceramic version...?

    I still keep going back and forth on the Flamingo Pink. It's definitely different than the usual phone colors. If I get it, it'll probably keep me from being swayed by anything the next Note comes out in. Unless Samsung does some f-ery and makes a Prism Green Note after leaving those of us in the US out of that one. That color is gorgeous.

    Meh ... I've never been one for a colored phone, even when the colors are really cool. I have the ceramic black S10+ 512gb version, and love it. I have a thin/slim Spigen silicone case on it, so I can't even see the back anyway. I WOULD run this phone with no case, IF the sides were not curved and so thin. There's another thread somewhere in here about the curved screen edges and slim bezel, and how any of us who still have accidental touches because of it are cavemen who haven't yet figured out how to hold a modern phone. Either way, I hate the curved edges, which is why I run the case ... it gives me a thicker side to grab, and (even though I don't think I need it) it does give some protection to my phone.

    But, there's one more aspect of things worth considering when looking at case vs. no case ... and that is, the silicone case adds a rubbery grip to the back of the phone ... no sliding around most of the time, which makes me feel better. I know that it would take some time to get used to a slick phone back with no case on it. But, it is a very pretty phone, and I'd like to run it with no case if I could stand it ... and then, I MIGHT even consider another color (like prism white) ... but, I doubt it lol.

    Mine is prism blue. I was never a fan of white and the pink was way too bold. I wanted green but of course we don't get that here in the US. The US almost always gets more of the standard blander and way too commonly used colors. It is a shame.
