Are you from the UK? Your choice for the spelling of color is my assumption.
Based on the location the OP listed, I believe he/she is in Australia.

White one shows too many circles around the speaker area which in my opinion doesn't look very good

I went with black

Black

I had a white iPhone 4 before upgrading to the 5 and I just think the white boarder is too distracting from the screen so decided to go with the black this time.

Both look great. Wife has white, I have black. I was originally wanting the white but only had blacks in stock so took the black. Don't really regret my decision as both look great, but I think the white just edges it for me.

My 3G was black, because that was all that was offered, the 4S is white, and I'll probably stick with white when I upgrade to the 5S.

Black, of course. White is for girls.

White iPhone 5, for contrast

Because I knew I would be purchasing a wallet for the iPhone I chose white for the contrast. Black would have blended in with the brown leather. <Not better>



Quality material and workmanship. Wallet was purchased at an Apple Store.* ****http://twelvesouth.com/products/bookbook_iphone5/

These statements are getting incredibly old.

Anyway, I have a white one. Although, after playing around with my friends black one, I may switch. The black ones really nice.

Just curious, will the white eventually become off white or even yellowish?

Variations occur with use even with the dark black color. Plastic shields keep the body good as new if resale is a consideration. Function is all that matters, I find, as time rolls on.

Got black.........AGAIN.

When I did see the white iPhone 5 in person, I kind of wished I had went white. In fact I went with a white Mini just to change things up. Generation after generation of black is getting to me.

Had a white ip5 on release date and then 1 month later got the black. Black hides the black bars when apps aren't customized for the ip5 screen.

White this time around (the wife got black, her previous 4 was black, my 4S was also black).

I really dig on the polished beveling and ports and thought it would be more nick proof. Did a blue Elago case, looks great with white (and shows off the design pretty well).

My iPad 4thG is also white, blue smart cover
