    I must be extremely OCD - but I had to switch back to my black iPhone.

    Pros for white iphone:
    -White iPhone is very sleek and different, no doubt about it.

    Pros for black iphone:
    -Sleeker - as much as people like to stand out, the black is definitely more classy
    -Screen and phone disappears when you turn off the LCD (can't tell where the screen is)
    -Can't see lint / dirty marks on the edge of the screen
    -Stealthy - especially with a case
    -Looks thinner (perception)

    So, while if the white iphone came out at the same time, I would have picked it, I can't see myself going for one now. I think a lot of people like that it's unique and catchy (and it's quite beautiful) I just think it's not as classy as a black iPhone. This is only my personal opinion but I thought it might help someone who is on the fence about switching to a white iPhone 4

    I never held nor seen a white iPhone yet, but those are some good points I haven't thought of or seen anyone else write about. Lint instead of fingerprints is not a trade off I would want to make.
