    No protection and mine still looks great. Just have a tiny scratch on the back. The bezel looks like new.

    You do know that the white color is under glass, right?

    From the number of topics I've seen like this I would guess not many people know that. Although the color is underneath the glass, I would assume a white background would show more dust/smudge than a black background would which is what the OP might actually be asking.

    I would guess they do.

    However, that wouldn't stop the white from yellowing due to UV exposure (if the paint wasn't treated properly). I believe that was one of the issues with why it took so long for Apple to perfect the white iPhone.

    My friend has the white one and his still looks great. We take them everywhere and both just have a smartcover. I wouldn't be worried about it.

    Surely you must be kidding. Do you really think dust and smudges show MORE on a white bezel?

    I don't know how my white ipad looks because I returned it and got a black one which really is less distracting. You definitely notice the white bezel, whereas the black disappears.

    Glad to hear that. I almost went the the white but didn't because I was worried about it being distracting.

    Topic: The only thing I can see discoloring on the white iPads is the home button.

    In anything other than a dark room, I notice the black bezel more.

    Really? I've been using a black one and it seems like it's just the way it should be. My eyes don't even notice the black when viewing the screen. It seems like the white would stick out like a sore thumb.

    Why don't you make a white paper bezel and use it for a bit. This is a subjective decision.

    That's actually not a bad idea. I may try that. Thanks!

    I'll just add that while its possible that the white bezel is distracting, It honestly doesn't bother me and I like the white too much to change.

    Well I have the white one and just wanted to know how it will tinge over time, being I have prior experience with Apple white products. When view photos and watching movies, I don't notice the white bezel. Doesn't get in my way or bother me.
