white screen doesn't show scratches as prominently as the black. White won me over

White. Without a doubt. The black only succeeded in looking like every other android phone out there.

Ditto. The black looks like a Dark Knight gadget.

White body but with black screen or glass look best! Too bad Apple didn't give us that option.

Thought the white was the better looking one. Bought it off Craigslist and quickly discovered that I preferred the black. Sold the white on Craigslist and got a black one today at an Apple Store.

I had to switch my white ip5 to a black one. The screen looks so much better with the black borders and I love how it blends with phone when it's off. Also the black is the exclusive color for the iPhone 5. If you go on the apple website and go to the phone carrier stores, they advertise the black one. Whenever I look at the white ip5s, it reminds me of the 4s.

Never said anything about wanting to look like Batman. The phone looks like something out of Dark Knight.

Just as this camera looks like something out of Iron Man

Thumb resize.



...and i already have a girl.

I prefer the white iPhone 5. I have both the black and white and the black is more prone to dirt unlike the white one. And the white one looks more classy

Black looks better - white handles better.

Black. With white you see all the front sensors and the screen edge. Black makes it look so much more seemless

The white one doesn't get as beaten up looking as the black. And the aluminum back is classic Apple.

I have the black. The reasons being:

- When running apps that are not updated for the 5, the cut off on the top and bottom of the screen is much less noticeable with the black.
- I like the daarker color scheme of the back much more than the white
- Even though there are reports of it scratching more easily, I like the black antenna band. This is what I was hoping for from the iPhone 4 and 4s. Also, when sitting both a black and white face up on a table, this is the only thing that makes an iPhone 5 easily discernible from a 4/4s at a quick glance.

Do you really care what others think? Asking what others find atheistically pleasing is like asking which peanut butter is better-crunchy or creamy, it doesn't matter one iota.
