    Hi all, (first time posting here so hopefully I've posted this in the right place! :) )

    I'm looking into buying a black iPhone 5, does the slate part (I'm talking about the black iPhone and iPad mini of course) of it look and feel the same as an iPad Mini? I was able to see the back of an iPad mini at my local reseller but in the UK stores seem to bolt the whole phone to tonnes of metal!

    Thanks! :)

    they are made out of the same substance so I'm sure they feel exactly alike. On the iPad's it's not two tone for the back, the front is the primary color (black or white) and the back is the secondary(slate in your case, silver on the white model). On the iPhone 5 it's front white or black and the back is black and slate or white and silver. So you won't feel those glass windows

    both of them are finger print magnets though, on the white version it's less noticeable but still there.
