    Pantone color of the year seems to influence the annual offerings for Samsung. Last year it was violet/purple, this year living coral.

    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

    can we at least stop with the red and do different colours? Red is getting boring. I think apple does it best with the product red and the aid research.

    They always remain last in stock of shops and suppliers because almost nobody wants them and those who want that phone model can't find a decent black color because they're sold first. Also, red phones aren't for straight men.

    The biggest problem with Motorola customization is that if something goes wrong with it ... with not a simple fru it out ... they have to send it in to Motorola and have them fix the phone ... or if it can’t be fixed send them another with the same customized style ... and that’s something where you are left without a phone for like 2 weeks minimum

    They don‘t want to sell as few differentsetups as possible. They actualy release at least two versions so that one version looks better, more premium or in any other way more attractive so that they can make a higher profit on basicly the same product with just a slightly higher investment.

    A disadvantage you forgot to mention, is that whenever the new exclusive color gets launched, its like a good 2-3 months after the standard colors are already in the market. Loyal prime customers that want to or have already prebooked the device before launch don't get the option to choose between all the colors that the company manufactures. They either have to wait/resell their new phone to get that new special color, which is such a pain in the arse.
