If you’ve decided on silver iPhone X...

Would you change your mind if it comes with white bezel?

Why would it come with a white bezel? Did I miss something?
i don't think it would work.. the sensor housing needs to be translucent.. and translucent white is generally foggy.. where as darker can be clearer.

(at least, with the materials i have experience using)

i'll cook one up real quick.. be right back.

Due to all of the sensors, it’s clear why Apple chose black. Also, it reminds me of my favorite iPhone ever, the iPhone 3G/3GS

It’s damn near an exact match to the model: black front, silver edge, white back. Pretty nostalgic for me.
That’s actually a big reason I got it. The 3G was my first iPhone, and I had white iPhones and iPods (and Macs) until the iPhone 4 was released. The look of the silver hit me right in the feels.

hopefully the glass doesn't share that same nostalgic feeling :)

I like that the iPhone X front is black. You can get a silver one, put a case on it, and no one will know you have a silver phone.

Yes. White bezel would look hideous. I've always hated the white bezel phones.

Reason I went silver was the black front. If it didn’t have it I would be going black.
This is the best color combo

Because every single silver iPhone before has come with a white bezel?
The 3GS had a white back with a black bezel

That edit doesn't look too bad, but only because you left off the speaker, camera, and all of the sensors.

that's what i was saying in the post with the picture..
i don't think it would work..
maybe if all the components themselves were white and the housing were white then clear glass over that?

idk, that's a lot of modeling to render it at that level of detail and my inspiration level for doing it is pretty_pretty low so....

;)

If they were offering a slightly touched up Blush Gold with black front and rose-gold/copper stainless steel band I would've ordered that so fast.

I’d buy an iPhone X with the look of a white ceramic Apple Watch in a heartbeat though.
