    Does a white front deter from the display?

    Does having an iPod with a white front, make the display seem dimmer or harder to see?

    I have a white iPhone and the only time i find it distracting is when sunlight directly shines on it and makes the bezel brighter than the display.

    My iPod Touch 4g had a black face, and my 5g has a white face. I don't notice any difference, or perhaps I've simply gotten used to it.

    No. No. I find the black screen too 'heavy'

    I'd imagine that a white bezel would make the blacks of the screen seem blacker. However, I'm a fan of black-framed displays (like the MacBook Pro and iMac), so I have a black iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

    They do. For the iPad I prefer black because of the huge bezel, but I've always been a fan of white iPhones (they look really elegant) and I got the white iP5 over the black (especially because of scratchgate too).

    No. It does not deter anything.

    It may, however, detract from the iPod's overall appeal, depending on your personal opinion. And your knowledge of the English language.

    In my opinion, it does. That's why all my iDevices are black.
