    My black iPhone 4 used to overheat all the time in my car in the summer. Would the white one be less prone to overheating? Anyone has any experience?

    This is one of the main benefits of getting the white iPhone 4 over the black version.

    In addition to less heat absorbed by sunlight in the car you also get:
    - no fingerprints shown
    - less competition on craigslist and ebay

    a) phone just came out
    b) probably not. The iPhone gets warm when you charge it+ use gps/3G antenna, the color of the phone doesn't change how it dissipates heat.

    If your phone is just in your car, not being used, then yes it will probaly heat up less because it's white, but it will not cool down any faster

    If you leave your phone on the dash on a sunny day it will get hot.:rolleyes:

    ya, the black version absorbs an intense amount of sunlight, just leaving mine on a table outside caused it to overheat, on a windy day.

    Indoors, played NBA Jam for hours, it was overheating like I could use it as a heater during the winter months. Besides the outdoors in the sunlight issue (black = absorb heat more), white shouldn't be any different than the black.
