    I've yet to see one, but am tempted to get one in white, just to be different.

    I like the Apple white look and suspect it may be more durable and won't show marks and fingerprints as much as the gloss black.

    What do you think?

    I love my white iPhone 16gb.

    My cousin has the black one,

    White dose not show fingerprints and marks like the black one does. :D

    My wife has the white one, I have the black. Both are great-looking and you can't go wrong with either. The black does show fingerprints a little more (though I have mine in a Contour Flick, so that point is sort of moot for me) but there is no difference as far as durability goes.

    here's my thoughts

    I have a white one, and here are MY thoughts on it:

    IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT PROTECTION YOU USE WITH IT.

    If you're going to leave your iPhone "naked", get the white. It shows ZERO fingerprints in comparison to the black. If, however, you're going to get an Invisishield put on it, I highly recommend the black. The invisishield has turned my white into a dingy, faint cream color, and you can see all sorts of dirt around the corners.

    Good luck.

    I've had my white one since July and I really like it. Let's be honest, both colours look good, but there's just something cool about the white one.
    Why not pop along to your nearest Apple store and get some hands-on experience with both? I definitely would before buying one if I were you.

    I have the white, keep it naked, and it looks amazing! Plus it matches all my other :apple: products. ;)

    I have friends with both colors, but they all keep them in cases 24/7, so it really doesn't matter what it looks like. I don't get it, but c'est la vie.

    I have the white one and it is sexy. However due to my inability to keep things in mint condition I now have a case. It has an see through back though so you can still see the white.

    No, nobody has a white iPhone. The white iPhone is a lie. The white iPhone is a figment of your imagination. The white iPhones are really all in the desert, trying to get some color... black :rolleyes:.

    White iPhone is more beautiful!

    The white zone is for loading and unloading only.
    If you want to load or unload, go to the white zone.
    You'll love it, it's a way of life!

    Aplle genius told me that the white display iphones have a problem with dirt getting in (and showing up) around the sim slot. I was moaning about finger smudges on my black one at the time and saying that maybe I should have got a white one instead.

    They only told you that to try to stop you whining. It's not actually true...

    I have a black one...but have it in a white InCase Slider. Actually decided to do it after seeing 3 of the Apple employees in my local store with that combo. Of course different strokes for different folks...

    I have a white MacBook and it still looks new after almost 2 years. No visible fingerprints or smudges, unless you look at in the light of course. That very reason is what made me want to get a white iPhone, and that's exactly how it is.

    I don't have a case on it, but I do have a Power Support screen protector which keeps the screen smooth and smudge-free.

    Hi, thanks for the feedback.

    I'm going to buy tomorrow, so will consider both colours. I'm very tempted by white, though :)

    I really liked both colors.

    I was really leaning towards black.

    I chose the white one.

    And I believe it to be the best choice ever :).

    Not only does the white one look beautiful, people will definitely know from afar that you have an iPhone...the black one can still be mistaken for something else (at least from afar). :D

    Also, I didn't like the smudges on the black one.
