    Did a search and didn't find anything, does anyone have photos comparing the two? They look the same to me.

    ----------

    Did more googling, no difference:

    White/silver is the way to go if you don't want anybody to know you have a 5s :cool:

    One of the reasons I bought the white/silver 5S to replace my white/silver 5. I figure not many will look at the home button. It's one thing to be a tech geek, it's quite another for everyone else to know it. :)

    How much different is the gray from the black?

    The grey is very noticeably lighter than the slate. Also the chamfered edging is a bright and shiny silver on the grey versus a dark glossy look on the slate.

    If there is no difference, then why the heck are they sold out of the silver?

    LOL. Let me replace my ///M badge with a 328ci on my BMW.

    Yeah why the HECK are they sold out? Surely they'll at least wear some sort of pin on their shirt that says "I own an iPhone 5S".. Or maybe a hat that says it? Or maybe there are people out there who don't care if everyone around them knows that they have the latest iPhone? *GASP*

    I almost made it through my whole flight until someone noticed, despite my stupid Lollapalooza Mophie case, that I was able to unlock my phone without swiping.

    She didn't believe me when I told her I got it by just walking into a Verizon store on Saturday afternoon. She insisted I was one of those "line people". Whatever. Nothing wrong with that. I'll be a "line person" for the 6 next year.
