    Is the back of the two different? I noticed on my girl friends black iPhone 4 that it seems more glassier then my white one. Any one notice that? Thoughts?

    Yes. They painted it white instead of black.

    I could be wrong, but I'd assume it's an illusion based on the way light is reflected back from the surface. With the black phone, the light that passes through the glass is absorbed by the black paint, so all you see are the reflections on the glass (the light that didn't pass through the glass), whereas on the white phone, you're also seeing all the light reflected back by the white paint, so the reflections are less noticeable — hence it looks less 'glassy'.

    When I held the white iPhone 4, the glass on the back felt different (rather than look different), I don't know if thats what the OP meant.

    That's also how I feel, the black feels more richer
