I Never owned a white iphone, How hard is it to keep it clean under normal use?
Folks that have owned white iphones in the past, How hard is it to keep it clean under normal use? Would you get it in white again? why or why not
I had two white 3Gs and two white 3GS. I bought a 32GB white 3GS last weekend. I love the white. I keep it in an iSkin case. The original white 3GS stayed in that case for a year and was spotless when I sold it.
Just keep it in a good quality case and it will be protected.
There is glass on top of the white paint on both sides of the iPhone4, so it is no different from black. It's not like the 3g and 3GS where the Plastic is white. You will not be able to discolor the white paint as you will never be able to "touch " the paint.
I had a white 3GS and had a few problems with it, firstly I had a case on it (Griffin Reveal) and bits of dust and grit used to get under the case and this caused the case to push the grit into the phone back which caused little black dimples all over the phone which looked horrid, then after about 2 months the back started to crack, I had a crack near the headphone jack and 2 cracks on the side of the phone and they gradually turned beige/brown and looked horrid, also the only people I saw with white iPhone were women and ***** in convertible Audis, these reasons put me off wanting another white iPhone
My experience after having used all of the iPhones released models to date is that the white color is less likely to show day-to-day usage and is quite easy to keep clean otherwise. I've had a white one covered in dirt from hiking, dark blue ink from new pants and the daily grime just wipe away with no remnants. I haven't yet purchased an IP4 and after today's announcement likely won't be able to until later this year but the look and lack of visible finger prints is worth the wait for me.
Personally, I couldn't stand my white iPhone. It was so easy to get dirty. Thankfully, it was relatively easy to clean. I got it solely because my only concern was getting 16 GB, the highest capacity at the time. If they had it in black, I would've gotten that instead. When I ordered my iPhone a couple of days ago, I didn't give a second thought to when the white one was coming out.
You really can't compare a white glass phone to a white plastic phone. They're two different animals. If you're wanting to know what it's like to have the white iPhone 4, you'll have to wait for user reviews.
