Glad I bought white. Black looks great (always have gotten black) but there's something about the white that appeals more to me this time around.
The white is quite nice, but seems like it is better suited for girls named Laura and parents.
Thanks OP for the pictures....
I to purchased the white and glade I did. Just looks slightly better in my opinion over the black version.
White it is...
To each their own.
Some want a Chevy.
Some want a Ford.
Some want a Nissan......
I always went for white and glad I did it again. The 5 in white looks flawless front to back!
White, I <3 you.
I personally like the black because of the transition to the screen...it just looks so seamless. You don't get the black border around the screen that is visible on the white. Also, the black bars on old apps to compensate for the bigger screen will just camouflage with the rest of the phone and won't look too obvious
white, though, does look shnazzy...Win win for either
I am glad I bought my black one. It looks more professional I believe, and the black front matches the front of an iMac
If only Apple would release a MacBook Pro or Air in the same black color as the iPhone now!!!!
The white does look better. It more uniform in color, whereas the black has more contrast. The back plate looks more like gunmetal gray or is it the flash that's causing the color to look lighter?
Very happy I chose black. Also I'm a grown man, so I would feel kinda silly with a white phone.
Glad I went white because I don't wanna look like a hoodlum.
I'm leaning towards the white right now... And from apple site :
The back of iPhone 5 is made of anodized 6000 series aluminum the same material used in Apple notebooks with inlays along the top and bottom made of ceramic glass (on the white and silver model) or pigmented glass (on the black and slate model).
The white use ceramic glass ? Is it better than pigmented glass ? Very keen to find out.
Their both aesthetically pleasing, but I can't imagine having a white phone either! It's going to be a shame when its covered by a case.
I prefer the white way more than the black. It's a much cleaner look, for my taste. Also, I like the contrast it provides with the border of the screen and camera/speakers; I like to actually see them.
Everyone is buying the white iPhone. Glad I got black. It just looks so sleek and professional. The back reminds me of an iMac.
Thought the exact same thing looking at the photos. Except I still ordered a black this time around. Not sure I like the slate gray back.
After seeing these images, I prefer the look of white.
I know it sounds strange but I agree with Joeymac1, the white seems like a chick phone. I know, childish.
Glad I'm black!!!
Better how? More scratch resistant? Tough to say. More shatter resistant? High doubtful.
Hmm...the back of the black phone looks more gray than black. I hope the actual phone is darker than that. The pictures on Apple's website it looks a lot darker.
I really hope the slate looks darker than that in person. If not, Apple's images are very deceiving. I love my white 4S but went back to black because it looked so sleek. It looks like more of a two-tone here. If it's too light, I might have to switch to white.
"Ditching the glass back and reducing the thickness of the glass panel on the front has affected the design of the metal band around the edge of the iPhone. It is now chamfered and while that looks pretty, we've already noticed that on the black model the edge has started to wear, revealing the shiny silver aluminium metal underneath the "slate" coloured coating and, indeed, we've witnessed it on two separate models, ruling out a fluke manufacturing error.
These small scuffs will catch the light and make the phone look visibly worn. We suspect that it won't be as noticeable on the white model because the metal edging is silver, so that's worth bearing in mind when you come to order your colour choice."
