    Just noticed that prices for Black iPhone 4S phones are nearly $40 higher on the second hand market than white.

    Glad I bought a black 5!

    Yeah that is why I went with a black iPhone 5. Plus I think the black iP5 looks better than the white.

    This will be my first iPhone, and I preordered it in white. I think the black looks good but I prefer the clean, polished look of the white model.

    to my understanding white always had a higher resale on the 4/4s?

    In my experience I've always sold my white iPhone way faster than the black one. Since more females are into white iPhones than black, you potentially have more customers. I've also sold them for a higher price than the black ones also.

    Really? I've noticed that on eBay specifically white iPads go for more than black. But that's the iPad, so maybe different on the iPhone.

    No, statically the white has a higher resale value. Always, even with cars.

    For some reason, the white iPads are higher currently. However, black iPhones are more in demand it seems.

    That's not what I've heard. White iPhones have traditionally gone for higher.
