    I have both a black and a white 16gb iphone 4.

    Im noticing quite a few differences.

    the wifi on the white one is DEF a lot better... It constantly receives data in at around 20mb/s where the black one only gets around 6/7 mb/s

    Also, when opening and closing the same app on both phones, with no multi tasking going on, the white opens and closes the apps a lot faster?

    Discuss what? It's the same phone. I know a couple people now with the white iPhone and they've all said it's exactly the same. Which it is.

    OP, you probably have the black one installed with a bunch of junk you don't need. Restore the black one to factory settings, then do the comparison test again.

    I was going to say the same thing. All the insides are the exact same. Isn't the only difference the front and back panels? Nothing to discuss.

    They have both the exact same apps, exact same music and exact same set up...!!

    Surely, this one would have the revised antenna system as the black one was purchased on the day of release of the iphone 4? I cant think of any other reason for the difference in performance?

    Here's another difference, the black is heavier than the white. Co-worker & I just found out by mistake. Also I get full bars vs his 3-4 in the same office, same iOS, etc... Interesting to say the least & needs to be noted. ;)

    I can confirm. My white iPhone 4 got 15 Mbps down while my black one got 10 mbps. The white also seems to have better call quality.

    I got an OEM white conversion kit for my black phone and got in instant speed increase. Wifi and 3g are both crazy fast, and battery life is much better. Everything's overall just snappier.

    Dude, do you think that if I buy two white conversion kits and I stack one on top of the other, I can get even better performance? My black iPhone 4 is lagging behind after using it for 9 months and the white iPhone 4 sounds like it's the Black iPhone 4 that it should have been.

    Probably so, but why stop at 2? Throw 15 on there. Sure it'll be a foot thick, but you'l have the fastest phone on the planet.

    I haven't noticed any performance differences. At least anything that could be attributed to it being a "white" iPhone.

    HOWEVER, I have noticed that the screen on my 32GB White iPhone is of noticeably CRAPPIER quality than the screen on my past 32GB Black iPhone (which I gave to my brother). Has anyone else experienced/realized this?

    I will have to compare this with my sister's 16GB White iPhone and see if this issue follows with the new White iPhones.

    The screen is just more dull and has less color and brightness (even on full brightness). At first I thought that it was just because of the white surrounding vs the black, but then at night time, there is a noticeable difference.

    Did you expect the white to have the exact same LCD?
