My wife is looking to gt an iPhone, but wants it I white. Her concern is that over time it will discolor or stain with makeup. Could some members provide me with feedback on how your white iPhones are holding up staying white.

This has been discussed before. It doesn't actually discolor, but I find "dirt" to be easier to see. It's glass, so her makeup isn;t going to permanently stain anything.

The white paint is under the glass panel so you don't have to worry, it won't get dirty. Except maybe around the home button, but you can easily clean it with a q-tip :)

It's a glass front and back. It wont stain.... unless the makeup your wife wears has the power to etch glass!

The dirt that collects around the bezel will be a lot easier to notice but you can just use a piece of paper or something to get in between the glass and the plastic!
