    Someone may have already posted this so my apologizes in advance :)

    But for the Nexus 5 owners out there what color Nexus are you rocking? White or Black?

    I have the black model. Probably would have gone with white if the whole phone was white. Not a fan of the half and half look.

    Do you have the white? How would you compare the difference between the backs? The black has a very soft-touch matte finish, and I have heard the white is more solid.

    I do have the white one. From what I understand the white is more of a harder plastic than the black. The black feels a bit more rubbery. The back on the white one still feel great in hand. One of the best feeling phones I have ever had. Just a bit different. Also the white one has kind of glossy side, and the black takes the back and puts the same material on the sides.

    I'd go for the white. I have a black Nexus 4 and like the idea of a change of pace, 'stormtrooper-looking' Nexus 5.

    For the same reason I wouldn't consider the white iPhone 5s or any other elctronic, I like my stuff to be black and matching. Can't stand the front being white and taking away from what I'm looking at.

    White has the cheap & nasty Samsung style plastic at the back, not to mention the homemade, half-and-half look. No thanks Jeff, black all the way.

    Cheap Samsung look? What are you talking about? Have you even held the phone in hand? Feels so much better than an Samsung phone.

    Yes, I have. I'm taking about the slick, glossy plastic used for the back cover of the Nexus 5. It feels and looks cheap.
