galaxy-s4-color-comparison-1-aa While you may not consider the Samsung Galaxy S4 to be the most innovative product of the year, it’s certainly one of the biggest releases. It’s a very nice handset, and it has performed remarkably well in our versus tests with other devices, such as the HTC One. However, the Galaxy S4 doesn’t come in a whole lot of colors just yet.

There two official colors for the device are Frost White and Mist Black with a few more that should be arriving in the near future. In the meantime, we’ve put together a color comparison video for you!

It’s the same thing with the Frost White variant, but the sensors on the phone are more visible. They feel a bit more hidden on the Black Mist variant due to the darker color.

On the other hand, the lights from the capacitive buttons on the Frost White model give off light into the body of the device. That isn’t the case with the Black Mist variant.

When it comes to the two color options, the assumption is that Frost White is probably the most popular given the fact that Mist Black wasn’t available on some carriers right away. Frost White on the Galaxy S4 is really nice and is certainly my favorite out of the two. However, we’d love to hear what your preference is. Simply vote in the poll below!

    The mesh-like design looks better on the black back-cover.

    I have the White Mist, I decided to switch it up because I usually get black when given the option. But I honestly prefer the white GS4. I feel the black one has a weird blueish tinge at times.

    I own a SGS4 frost white and it looks better and cleaner, especially when i bought a slim armor black case. LEDs look amazing at night too, its like a fading rounded shape when it glows

    I personally like the Frost White better. The texture on the back of the Mist Black doesn’t appeal much to me. It looks a bit too “foil-y” for me. I prefer the texture on the white one since it’s a bit more subtle. :)

    I have a black one, but it’s not really black, it’s blue. Still better than gaudy white, by a mile.

    White has better looking to display, but black is better to every day use.
    I have a black, but would be happy with either one.
