    The thing about colored phones is ur gonna put a case on it anyways. It doesnt really make sense to choose a color, unless its the difference between light and dark colors. Dark colors heat the phone quicker.

    I remember back when I was in college and the Motorola Razr was THE phone to have. I was in my local Alltel shop (Hadn't been bought by Verizon at the time) and a woman came in to buy a pink Razr. This was mid-December, mind you. They were out. They had standard grey ones, and pink ones would be in the next Monday, and they'd reserve one for her. SHIT FIT TO END ALL MIDDLE CLASS WHITE HOUSEWIFE SHIT FITS! I thought she was gonna tear the skin off her face and start projectile vomiting. Over having to wait four days for a pink camera phone.

    PlayStation does it with Glacier White!
    RAZER does it with QUARTZ!
    Apple does it with RED on iPhone.
    Apple does it with Gold on iPhone XS instead of iPhone X.

    Also it’s not that good for companies to make a lot of colour variants for the same product. Because that will make the company make 2x or 3x the amount of the same phone but in different colours (depending on how many different colours). So that leads the company to spend more money yet the amount of phones getting sold will remain the same, causing more phones not being sold.

    If you still don’t understand, let’s say Apple made 1000 white coloured phones, let’s say 100 people buy them which leaves 900 phones that haven’t been sold. Now let’s say Apple made 1000 white phones and 1000 black phones, but again only 100 people bought the phones but now they chose different colours. So now Apple has 1900 phones not sold meaning they lost more money cuz they made a lot more phones that didn’t get sold
