It is made from the souls of ancient Spartan warriors, which is in an eternal state of ambient glow. This is placed under reflective glass to give the appearance of a white iPhone. If you hold it right, you can hear a faint battle cry given by a warrior just before war.

On the bright side, there should be no doubt that Apple uses but the best quality materials.

I like the white iPhone because it's not completely white it's actually two tone. Really it's great but it looks better.

And they said Apple didn't innovate.

The iPhone 4S was painted white with a special type of paint on the back of the glass.

The iPhone 5 is made of ceramic glass. (think toilet bowl)

On the back of the glass? It looks like something is behind the glass though not just painted on the back.
