    Does anyone else feel like the white iPhones give the illusion of a larger screen than the black iPhones. I don' know what it is, but it just feels larger.

    Usually when it comes to black vs white, it's the other way around.

    It depends on the content you display. If it's movies with have two black bars, black iPhone are better. If it's brighter content which is mostly the case when browsing with Safari white iPhones are less distracting.

    It used to be the opposite but since iOS 7 is predominantly white I feel the same.

    Is Apple's way of subconsciously manipulating those ppl who gripes for a bigger screen. ;) GENIUS!

    I think it's because there is a little black bar that goes around the edge of the screen. It's not seen well on the black iPhones and just looks like the bezzle, but on the white iphone it's visible. That's why it looks slightly bigger, IMO.
