    I went with the black front as I prefer how the screen blends in with the black bezel.

    I go back and forth year to year since white came out, I got jet black this year and am so relieved to get rid of white it gets old looking at the white. Also on edge of bezel and antenna lines get stained . If I had to pick one forever it would be black NO QUESTION

    I don't know if its just me or not, but I felt like I always saw a black border around the screen with the white front. With the black, that border just blends in better.

    I've historically gone for white until the iPhone 7. The screen is stunning with the black surround.

    I always switch between the two. I think they're both nice.

    I prefer the black front, I have never purchased a phone with a white front.

    I switch with each phone. This year, I wanted the Jet Black. I like both the white and black face.

    I choose black because I love wearing all black everything. Also I was tired of the white since I've had the gold for two years. I won't ever not choose black again.

    White front wouldn't bother me much if I plan to watch videos in the dark when the lights are off but I tend to go for the black front. I am 80/20 with black v white gadgets but sometimes I do get bored of the usual black and would go white to change things up.

    White because it hides glass screen protectors much better. Hardly noticeable on white.

    Has nothing to do with gender. It's all personal preference or for those that have a reason like I do.

    I chose the white bezel this year, always had Space Gray. I actually really like the change.

    This lady's next iPhone will be black.

    And judging product color by gender? That's a new one... :rolleyes:

    Im 31 and male and obviously not female which apparently is important so I got the white. Its a nice change after having black for several years!

    But you're immature, so you classify gender by phone color.

    I love the matte black back, but miss the white front that I had on my previous 2 phones

    Next year when the 8 comes out, there may not be any bezels. There would be no more colored bezels.

    There will always be colored bezels. They may get smaller, but they will always exist.

    I'm more concerned about whether or not you'll be able to get the next iPhone before it's 3 months old.

    I'm pretty sure the person who said the color choice and their gender was being sarcastic. If you've been around long enough on this site, it always happens in threads like this.
