    Personally i think the black looks cool, however because of all the scuffgates and more smudges i'm glad i got white.

    But then if i got black i would want white. :rolleyes:

    I don't think you would have made the OP unless you have some kind of regret.

    Nope. Black is beautiful. Mine arrived perfectly mint, and still is...for now. ;)

    Just making a conscious effort not to toss it in the same pocket as my keys and knife.

    I went for white this time round for a number of reasons, partly as a change from black, partly because I love unfinished aluminium (like the Macs) and also because of all the scuffing stuff.

    But when I think about it, I actually think a worn out black iPhone 5 would look seriously badass. It is, however, hard getting through the 'honeymoon' period of a new phone; people want them to be perfect at first, but when you eventually push through to the worn-in look, it looks awesome as well.

    Resale value, which I know is important to many here, does suffer, of course. That's the main downside of the scuffing thing, in my opinion.

    Anyway, what I'm saying is that I think both colours are great in their own ways.

    I think the yes and no needs to be flipped to make sense with the question.

    But I love my black iPhone.

    Also, aren't the 'yes' and 'no' bits the wrong way round? As in it should be 'No, I wish I'd got black' and 'Yes, I love white'?

    He meant "Do you regret the iPhone 5 color you picked?" as shown in the title.

    I've got both a white and black model coming but still haven't decided which one to keep. I wont be able to open the boxes to compare so I have to base my decision on the issues with each phone along with the looks of each from photos.

    Black does have that sleek, badass look that I really like but the scuffing issues are too much to ignore. I do have a set of full body BSEs coming but they wont arrive in time for me to protect the phone from day 1.

    White isn't so much sleek as it is classy. It simply exudes beauty.It won't have the same scuffing issues and would look much nicer together with my Retina MBP.

    I know this is going to end up being a last second spur of the moment decision that I will second guess for a long time no matter which I choose. Eventually, I'll know I made the right choice and it is, after all, just a phone. I'm not naming my first born. ;)

    There's many things I regret in life, but not my black 4S. If i had to go 5, it'd be white.

    The black iPhone 5 is seriously a work of art.

    No regrets. And to think I had initially chose white with the Best Buy rep during my preorder.

    I got black. The one with the glass back. Looks nice. Or is that an iPhone 4? So hard to tell them apart.

    Switching from the white 4S to black 5 down side.
    It makes it easier for the wife to spot a new cell phone ;)
