    As the keynote has now ended, I would like to find out everyones thoughts on what colour iPhone 5 they will be purchasing. I was, at first, going to go for the white, but now im tempted to go for the black, Looks very sleek. Share your thoughts with us!

    The black is super sleek and is my choice for the pre-order!

    I was planning on a white iP5. Unfortunately the back aluminum design doesn't seem very appealing. The black definitely presents a better overall appearance.

    I have a white 4S. And I have to say iPhone 5 in black is much sleeker than its white counterpart.

    White imo. I usually prefer Black for the iPhones, but now that the sides aren't silver, it doesn't seem to look as nice in my eyes lol. Plus the back looks better on the white.

    Usually I always get white but I have to say the black looks better this time. Might have to switch.

    Black is better for me for work as white got a little grubby last time. I always preferred the white but the black aluminium is just lush!

    Now for the macbooks to get that finish too PLEASE!

    I usually go black with no hesitation... But I'm torn on this one. The light silver on the back looks kind of nice on the white.

    White 32. I like both and couldn't decide, so I just flipped a coin.

    Ah I just can't decide. I've always had a black iPhone (should have bought a white 4S), but now they changed the black and it just looks so sleek. I was going to get the white one.

    Maybe flipping a coin is the solution. Will they have the iPhone 5 at apple stores before Friday?

    I was sure that if the rumors were true, I'd go black. But seeing the white in the official press photos...it looks awesome

    I've had since I first got an iPhone and ever since I have gotten the black iPhone 4 and saw everyones white iPhone 4 and 4s I wanted a white one. Though, now that they have changed the look of it on the back casing I can't make up my mind. Both look so good. Black looks nice and sleek but the white one has a nice look to it to. Ahhhhhhhhh can't decide!

    I wonder how scratch resistant the black is? Is it just the plain aluminum painted black?

    I can't decide either. Although in the hands-on videos I've seen, the black gets pretty nasty looking.

    Yeah, this is what i'm thinking! BUT my 4S spends 99.9% of its life in a case, with the back hidden! and to me, the front just looks the same...

    Hmmm I think black at the moment!
