iPhone 5C: Black or White Face

Personally, I think colorful things look better against a black background. Others like white. Vote!

Personally, I think the black face looks horrible with the colored backs. Maybe it just reminds me too much of the 2nd gen iPod Touch I had with a colored plastic shell case. There was a fake leaked image of the 5C a while back that had a white face, and I thought it was actually kind of nice looking.

The white front looks 100x better than the black.
I have no idea why Apple went with black...

It seems, really, that all they're doing is putting a plastic back on what essentially is the regular iPhone 5. Or is there ANYTHING different in the internals?

If it's just a wolf in sheep's clothing, why do you suppose there's no white 5C? Are they just trying to simplify the supply chain? (Because a white 5C would double the SKU's, and I suppose more SKU's = more headaches.)

But I agree with many out there... the colors would look MUCH better with a white front.

Thanks for that - that image has helped me decide what 5s I want.. as I much prefer the screen appearance with the black surround, rather than white!

I'd prefer the white face, matches better with the pastel colors in my opinion

Nope….I didn't…..it's still another pointless poll post.

The only white faces apple has shown are the white and gold 5S's…..

Black border to photos and videos appear better to the human eye. (Hence TVs and monitors being black)

For messaging and stuff, it's a toss up.

Better LTE band support, improved front camera and higher capacity battery.

White face looks a lot better. Maybe the black was to differentiate from the iPod's.

In my opinion, some colours look better with a white face and some with black. I think the coral and blue should have had the white face at least.

The black face on the white phone might seem an odd choice, but I think that it was necessary to stop it not really feeling like a colour choice, as white all over was done with the 4, 4S and I believe the 3G and the 3GS also.
