Screen on white model better than black

Just an observations really .... I swapped my 64GB black cellular in the local Apple store for a white model (due to nicks appearing on the bezel), and I'm convinced the screen on this one is clearer. Text just seems sharper on this one than the previous black model. I know Apple source screens from different manufacturers, but this is certainly a better screen.

Most likely just a coincidence or an optical illusion.
Wait other feedbacks of customers that have tried both colours.

Otherwise Apple is racist.

It is possible for a white iPad to have a different screen supplier from a black one. But aside from that and one having a flaw, it will just be an optical illusion.

why would apple have one manufacturer contract for black color and one for white.

They must have six diff. suppliers for Ipod touch 5 then. Nonsense, just go exchange it if you find a flaw.

My white iPad charges quicker than my black one, too. Racist, me? No. LOL, tho I might have entitled this thread: "White is better than black" if I wanted to make a statement... haha, I kid.
