I guess there's something about how the screen seems to float when turned on, and is almost indistinguishable from the bezel when turned off, that I like about the black models. The white ones seem too 'framed' for my tastes.

I think that's mostly for the big iPads. The white isn't too noticeable on the iPhone or on the mini. I do prefer the white in general as I think they look different from the usual black tablets. But for the first time I am considering the black as I watch a lot of videos...

I'm pretty sure the OP spent months following your viewing habits here on MacRumors, graphed a trend and had a motive, but waited for the right moment to post this topic here because he knew it would upset you, and all those months of research paid off.

Now back to the original topic.

I have a White iPad mini and Black iPhone 5 (and White/Silver iPod nano)

I originally got the Black iPad mini and one night I picked up my friend to go out and I forgot my iPad was on the passenger seat and he didn't see it. He sat on (it blended in with my black car seats) and half way in the car ride I realized what he did. It didn't break or anything, so I decided I wanted the White iPad mini instead.

I feel similarly about how the screen sort of disappears on the black, more so on the iPhone 5 than on the iPad mini. But I do really like the white, especially how fingerprints don't show nearly so glaringly as on the black models.

I had a white iPhone 4S and bought a white iPad 3. But I just didn't like the look up the white iPhone 5, so I bought a black iPhone 5.

White iPhone 4 and black original iPad (no white available, plus I didn't get to choose, as it's work-provided). I'll get another white iPhone when I upgrade and I'm wanting a white iPad mini...

My wife has a black iPhone 4 and wants a black mini. Go figure...

Well I got the white iPhone at the last second because the silver/white looks way better than gunmetal/black this generation. I went in intending to stay black but then at the last second I told the Apple worker to get the white on an impulse. I had to do it.

Then of course my iPad 4 had to match.

I like my devices to stand out, be different because they are apple products. It just goes with being an apple nerd...

For as long as I've owned iOS devices, I've owned the black versions. But for this round I got a white iPhone 5 and white iPad 4 to switch it up so to speak and couldn't be happier.

It used to, until I sold my old black iPhone 4 and bought a white iPhone 5.

That's odd. I think white is less visible or "framed" when the screen is on.

Could be, I haven't really noticed. But on the other hand, the bezel really stands out when the screen is off.

Either choice is good. But do you really care what it looks like off? No one stares at a blank screen.

Yeah, kind of. Nobody looks at my underwear, but I still buy ones that have nice-looking patterns on them. Nothing wrong with wanting your stuff to look nice.

I couldn't stand my white 4S so I have a black 5 and a black iPad 3. I think the white iPads looks pretty good so not sure what color my next one will be. I definitely won’t have a white iPhone again anytime soon.
