    I am bored of the black color after 3 gens of iPhones and am thinking of going with the white for the first time and maybe a black bumper. Anybody going with white for the first time?

    Although Apple may not be manufacturing bumpers, there are already several out there. I bought one, along with another cheap case on Amazon, until I find a case I like.

    I had black for the last few iPhones, so switching to white for the 5. Like the white look just as much as the black.

    Yes, I am going for white for the very first time in my life. What about it would you like to discuss? I'm very excited to discuss this.

    I went with white this time too after having black for 3GS, 4 and 4S. The all black looks sweet but time for a change. Who knows maybe I will go back for the 5S :D

    Mostly if it is okay for a guy to carry a white phone, although I am probably at an age when these things shouldn't be bothering me anymore.

    I also read on the Apple sit that the glass in-lay windows on the back of the white iPhone 5 are ceramic vs. pigmented glass for the black models. I wonder if this means the white iPhone is more scratch resistant?

    I have a feeling some of us are gonna regret not getting the white. It might be one of those things that don't look good on photos but is stunning in person

    I'm getting the white because I had a black 4 for 2 years, and my ipad 2 is also black, plus this time around, it's not even close. White won the color competition for me going away. Black looks ugly to me in every picture and video I've seen.

    The only thing I'm not into is the way it looks when the screen is off. I like how uniform the black phone looks when it's off. Oh well.

    This!

    It's exactly why I went with white. The press photos from after the event have the white looking much better than it does on Apple's iPhone site. So I figure a good part of the perception is the renders don't match up with how it will look in real life.

    Plus, black is boring...
