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.

I have to Google it. Is it made out of plastic? Cause you could take off the back of the iPhone 4 and it appeared to be plastic surrounded in glass.

But the iPhone 5 is different, I ... I don't know what it's made out of.

But what's stranger is I don't know what makes a white iPhone white.

You'd probably need to know what makes a black iPhone black first so that you could then figure out what makes a white iPhone white.

Is the iPhone 5 made out of that new Gorilla Glass? I've yet to see a 5 crack and it's much less fingerprint prone.

I think the iPhone 5 white part is made out of white glass!

Well an iPhone 4/4s backplate is make from a piece of glass, with white paint on the back, and iPhone screens are the same just with the LCD in the middle. iPhone 5 I believe the back is plastic, as it scratches easily, the back top and bottom that is. But yes, paint...

Can you even take the back plate off of an iPhone five?

If so I would like to consider that because I would like my whole back to be just gray and not two-tone.
