    I have the black/slate iPhone and it's unfortunate how bad the fingerprints and smudges are.

    For those of you with the white iPhone 5, how does the back plate hold up?

    Actually, I've been pretty impressed how well it repels prints. Wash your hands more?

    Look, I love the iPhone just as much as the next guy.

    But come on. Do people really expect a phone that will repel all fingerprints, smudges, dents, knicks, falls, elephant stampedes & thermonuclear war????

    after owning a black 3G, 3GS and 4.
    i have decided to go with a white and silver 5.
    i'm glad i made the switch:D

    the finger prints are visible on the screen.. for obvious reason but not on the body.
    another thing, i don't have to worry about the so called scuff gate from the black and slate 5.

    The white iPhone 5 is looking so good. I can't see any finger prints on the back or the white portion of the front.
    The aluminum on the back hides finger prints incredibly well.
