    The cameras (or processing) behave differently. Seriously. I first noticed it when I was out shopping for a new iPhone. I did a couple sample shots (1 black, 1 white iPhone) at the Apple store and noticed the pictures looked different. Then I tried a few different black/white iPhones and observed the same differences. I thought I was just imagining it at first, but the differences are definitely there.

    We have a black and a white iPhone in our house and I've done the comparison test several times in different settings. To my eye the white iPhone produces sharper images and more natural coloring with the flash off. Though it can blow out whites at times. In particular in good/normal lighting situations I think the black iPhone produces more natural/subdued shots. The white iPhone performs noticeably better in low-light with the flash off than the black iPhone does. It grabs more detail and has less noise.

    PCWorld has made pretty much the same observations, and has some comparison shots posted that you can take a look at.
