In fact, U.S. colonies included the Philippines, Guam, American Samoa and several that we still have, like Puerto Rico

Technically, none. They were British colonies before independence and subsequent territories weren't technically colonies.

It probably depends on how you define "colony" but I think there is a technical difference between "colonies" and "overseas possessions". India and Hong Kong weren't British colonies in the same sense that the American colonies were. But I'm no authority on this.
