I feel the white iPhone 4S just looks worse compared to my black iPhone 4. The bevels should be lighter on the white one, and you can see the edges of the white screen in the white iPhone 4S.

Does anyone regret buying the white version?

Black looks more sleek. But I got white to change it up since I always had black. No regrets getting white tho

I think the white one looks nice, but I ended up getting black since I think it looked more stealthy. Both are nice though. White certainly turns heads.

I agree with^. I really liked the white ip4 when it dropped. But come time to buy the 4S I couldn't help but go black. I guess it's true, once you go black.....

I was a big fan of the white when it came out for the iPhone 4. Since then I've changed my opinion. I think the black is a better looking phone. Looks much better in cases as well IMO.

Had all the iPod touch generations in black and a SGS2 in black. It was time for a change when I stepped up to 4S so I went with white. Other than dirt getting stuck into the borders I don't regret getting a white at all.

An iPhone will turn heads whether it's black or white.

I just went from a Black iPhone 4 16gb to the iPhone 4S 32GB. Zero complaints here. I think it's a nice change up.

No complains either. White phones require more cleaning maintenance which is expected.
Mine still looks pristine, and i work in manufacturing. The color is under the glass, it's not cheap white plastic. It looks better than the black as far as fingerprints go. I know someone who has a launch day white iPhone 4 and it's the same, it's not gotten dirty at all.

What did people do with these tiny regrets in life before the internet was invented? Did they just move on with their lives?

You should try that.

i have a white iPad two and like the cosmetic look of the white bezel, so i decided to get the white 4s too. i do not regret it at all.

I am not worried about turning heads and always pick black.

A friend of mine has had the iPhone 4S for just over a month and let me look at it the other day.

It was nasty!:eek:

I got the white because I had a black iPhone 4. I figured since Apple didn't change the appearance, I might as well get something different than I had before. I actually quite like it.

Had a black 3GS, switched to white for the 4S. I'm really happy with the decision. I think it looks fantastic, and I don't see as many fingerprints on it as I did the black one.

Are you serious? For real?
There are people in this world dying from starvation, children fighting and wars and you are complaining about the edges of the white screen?
Wow... first world problems..
Did you even look at the phone before you got it?

And yes, I got my Mother a white iPhone 4 six months ago and neither of us have had any issues.

I have to ask...what's with the whole "first world problems" thing?

We all know that there are people starving, sick, etc. We know there's problems in the world. Does that mean that people aren't allowed to ask questions or be concerned about anything else? Just because someone is here saying they're disappointed with their iPhone, it doesn't mean they don't give a crap about the rest of the world. We can be concerned about other people and still have problems/questions of our own. I'm so sick of seeing this pop up on post after post...
