    I am still waiting on mine and have yet to see one in person, but what attracted me so much to the black was that for the first time, the entire phone and screen look all one color. It's really sharp. I'm curious to know if it also looks this way in person, maybe even after a few fingerprints?

    The back/sides do look black but in light they are actually blue/grey.

    Still looks awesome from a few inches away.

    Looks great and mine hasn't been picking up that many finger prints yet.

    It looks super sharp. The middle doesn't pick up too many prints.

    It looks all one color from certain angles, two tone from other angles.

    It looks like a single color from the front. The antenna edge (the reflective part) is what you see from the front, and it's really black, not slate like the sides and back.

    Plus maybe it's just me but it looks like the screen blends more with the rest of the black front panel when it's closed. Maybe because it's thinner with in-cell.

    It looks pretty badass when lying on a table screen up and closed. It's just a minimal all black rounded rectangle with shiny edges. Even the home button sign is a bit darker than before.

    I've noticed this too and was wondering if it was just my imagination. In-cell makes sense.

    It actually looks pretty boring. White looks much better.

    Is it me, or the SIM Trey on that iPhone5 in the picture doesn't match the black color of the phone?

    It can't match anyway because it's a different material, much like the slight color difference between plastic bumpers and metal body on cars.

    ----------

    Yes, the black is blacker on the iP5 because of the new technology.

    I thought that the SIM tray was also anodized? I guess it is not then. Thanks.

    I'm sure it's anodized, but anodizing on different materials is going to look different, just like how the same paint on plastic bumpers and metal body (on vehicles) looks so very slightly different.

    From my take, it doesn't look all-black as far as it having all-black uniformity. It's definitely a contrast of black and gun metal. The contrast is "very" apparent.
