    I was on the fence about black/white iPhone 4. I have had every model and had a white one at one point. They all had one thing in common...black surrounding the screen. Not sure if I could get used to white. The black surround seems easy on the eyes.

    I ws on the fence too till the white wasn't available. I don't think it would've made a difference in easiness on the eyes though

    I have always owned a white iPhone because I wanted to stand out from everyone else. This time around I did not know wether to get white or black. After some thought I am going with black for a change. Reason being 1. White isn't avaliable, and 2. I don't really like the all white theme; I guess I would go with what was said above; black is easier on the eyes.

    I am waiting out for the white... The only thing about the white is that it may show dirt more, especially around the home button. I'm just hoping to get a case that covers the home button.

    This is the point of forums, discussions within groups of people. If you don't like this thread, all you have to do is scroll down a little more to view the next. Mind your business.

    I too wanted white because it has normally been less popular and if you have the white one people recognise it as being an iPhone. With the black though it will just blend in. Even now when i look at the pics i thing how nice the white looks. But then also the screen does stand out better on the black one as if you say watch something on Youtube with black on the front, then the borders blend in with the rest of the phone.
    With the white however you would notice the black borders contrasting against the white and also the big rectangle of black where the border is.

    So though the finger prints are going to show up waaaay more, the availability of black (though i could have waited) and the fact that all Apple videos always show black, i have taken this as a sign to just get black this time around, as the phone is for my viewing not showing off to others!

    My wife has white iphones and I have black. Easier to tell them apart. And since she got the 3GS, I get the iPhone 4. So, I would have gotten black anyway.

    The thin black border running around the entire LCD would drive me nuts on the white phone. Although from a style standpoint, the white isn't going to show off greasy fingerprints like black. I think of all this and then I remember one important thing: it's just a phone. A phone I'll most likely replace in a year when the inevitable 4g version comes out, rendering all this consternation over this years phone kinda dumb.
