    vs. old (grille)

    Perhaps, more so than the flaked paint thing some blogs were saying was the root cause, this was the true issue? I recall BGR saying the issue was related to paint thickness - too thick, and the old design caused the sensor to not work, and too thin caused light bleed through the paint.

    With the new design, that is no longer an issue; they can make it much thicker without worry of it interfering with the sensor.

    Look closer. The proximity sensor no longer has a grill over it.

    I see no difference, maybe I'm missing something?

    I like the old one better, and the black iPhone even more so.
    The new proximity sensor makes the white iPhone look worst than it did before (imo)

    Heres to a better image of the old one :
