    Do you wish you went with the black if you have the white? or vise versa?

    I have the black and I kind of wish I got the white instead now..

    I have both. No I don't have problem with either one. Honestly I don't know what people are complaining about when they say their phones are scratched up. Just get a back film if you're that concerned. I'm fine with the light chips on the chamfered edges.

    EDIT: White version

    Nearly 3 months with the black model but I keep looking at the white model thinking "should have I...?"

    Are the nicks noticeable on the white?

    Meh... It's black, it's a placeholder till Apple builds a larger more contemporary phone.

    Give us a choice that can go head to head with the latest & upcoming top of the line Android phones, and I'll happily put down the cash for one.

    My black one is fine. It has a case on it, but I don't regret my color choice. I still think that black looks best with apps that haven't been updated for the taller screen size.

    You can see a tiny bit of silver showing in some areas when the antenna band meets the chamfered edge, right on that join.

    Considering I haven't kept it in a case, it's done brilliantly, though next time I may get white simply for a change.

    Black iPhone 5 still looking great. Finally got a very small scratch on the black metal band last week. Still happy I went black for this gen. It looks way better than the white one.

    5 human demerits for using the word "rocking' as a verb.

    I use a hard case and matte screen cover. So it still looks the same three years later. I replace the protectors when they start to look ratty.

    My white model is gorgeous and in pretty good condition. I managed to drop it on tile TWICE the day before my case was supposed to arrive :)rolleyes:) but thankfully it just made two dings on the front corners. Now I just have a few light scratches around the bezel where the case isn't covering. I have screen protectors on the front and back so there should be no marks on the glass or the aluminum.

    I started with a black model but returned it for a white one because it looks so much nicer.

    I went with the black one, and have regretted it since almost the get go. Unless you have a particular want/need, white is the way to go.

    No case and I absuse mine and really only a few very small scratches on the screen from coming in and out of my pocket. But the back is still perfect

    White iPhone 5 looks pretty good, but I have a case and screen protector on it. I'm accident prone, which outweighs how awesome it looks naked.

    Color is such a negligible factor in my use and enjoyment of my phone. I'm content with my black one, as I'm sure I would be with a white one.
