You can sandpaper everything and not just the corners I think.

Probably towards the end of my contract, I'm gonna sandpaper everything. I feel like the slate color doesn't contrast well enough against the black.

Would much prefer that...don't see how it's awful, the iPad is the same way and I prefer the black one of it as well. I was really hoping the iPhone 5 would have the same type of back/body as the iPad or Macbook Air. Oh well.

It looks like the original iPhone which, IMO, is the best looking iPhone to date.


It could've even been a "tribute" to the original design Steve signed off on.

I think it looks pretty cool, like the original iPhone. Currently, the contrast between the aluminum and the snow white looks really off in most angles. It's a shame because the rest of the white iPhone 5 looks really good.

i'm kinda disappointed Apple is shoving the whole black/slate color up our throats with the iPhone 5 and now the iPad mini....makes me wonder if they are gonna add the slate and black to the Mac notebooks..

While I think that looks nice, I never really thought about it until you brought it up. It would be nice to have more color options, but overall it isn't very important to me.

No, the silver on my black iPhone 4 was my least favorite part of it.

I wish it was just glass -- much like the iPhone 4/iPhone 4S.

With that being said, if Apple were to ever add an additional color to their iPhone lineup, I could definitely see it being silver.
