Who said it'll be the iPhone 5, I think they'll call it the iPhone 4SL, the L for long.

Based off the leaks... I think the darker metal on the black iPhone looks better... I do not like the two tone, but it seems to look better on the black model.

Do you really think that? I would be willing to bet 1k it will not be that.

I have had both a white and a black before. The white is great b.c finger prints do not really show, but black is just so sleek I have to get it.

I've had a black iPhone 4 and 4S, so I may switch it up and get white.. I opted for black both times because I didn't like the look of the sensor above the speaker.. I'll see what Apple brings to the table before I make my final decision..

I agree, but I hate the two tone, I don't know how or if it will grow on me. :confused:

A phone case :(

ADDITIONAL: I remember when it was more rare to see someone with a phone case... it was usually a belt clip or something for someone who really needed the extra protection.

Now, I would say 3 out of 4, maybe even 4 out of 5... has a phone case on their phone. Of all of my friends with a smart phone, only 1 of them doesn't use a case that I can think of.

That's true but I really shouldn't have to cover up the new iPhone with a case. I just don't like the way it looks. :( It should be asthetically pleasing. Currently I'm using the black bumper on my black 4s and I would never use any other case except for maybe Lifeproof, I love the design factor on my iPhone and it's honestly not worth covering up.

As much as I like the look of the new 2 tone black slightly better(obviously as long as the leaks hold true), I'll most likely be going with white just because I'm tired of having black. Every phone I've had has been black so a change in scenery would really be nice.

Yea, I do not like cases either... but I do like my R2D2 case on my white 4S...

So I can make an exception here.

Seems the backs will be anodized on the new phone, so you won't have 'white', just aluminum (silver) with white sections top and bottom. White front though...

To me, the black anodized back/sides and black front make for a very handsome phone though.

Though you can have a wide variety of anodized colors (just look at the nano line), they'll look less spectacular with the top and bottom panels being black or white. You start to get into two or three (counting the antenna band) different colors on the thing.

I LOVEEE white phones but from all the leaked photos, I prefer the black one. Yeah, pretty surprised myself :eek: but I think Black looks better this time.
