    I got my Iphone 5S from Best Buy and it was the space grey , which I thought looked great but after 10 days I returned it for the the Silver & White.

    The whole OS just looks better, sharper, with a white on white background?

    I found the black borders to dull the screen and basically make the phone blah.

    It's just you...

    Whatever floats your boat... I'm fine with black... have an appropriate backgrounds on the lock & home screen and I like the look...

    Sorry, ClickClack, but I have to go with the crowd here... it’s definitely just you. I loved it on my black iPhone 5 and think it’s just as spectacular on my space gray iPhone 5S (with the same black "face" as the iPhone 5).

    I think the OS itself does indeed look better on a white phone, not to say it is bad on a black iphone.

    With that said I returned my silver 5s for space gray because personally think the black front is a lot cleaner looking.

    I felt the same way when I had the SpaceGray 5S. Returned it for the Silver/White and really like the way iOS 7 looks on it over the Black.

    I have always had white phones so for a change I went with space gray for the 5s. Looking at my 5 and 5s with iOS 7 I don't see a difference. Both look great.

    I think it all depends on the wallpaper you set.

    Exactly! OP, try the attached wallpaper and see how it looks on your device.

    you see to me, that looks dark , like a bad TV after watching a bright LED , not knocking your getup just how my eye sees it - now I will say, I wear glasses and have for many years, so I'm not 20-20 .

    Of course it looks brighter. Doesn't white reflect light.
    Now whether iOS 7 looks better on a white iPhone is a matter of preference. I like the white gold white silver iPhones they look great but I don't prefer them.

    Hope this isn't too way off topic but I'm the opposite when it comes to white gadgets.

    Of course the iPhone comes with a white lighting cable and charger and I don't prefer it.
    I don't mind it but I don't prefer it.

    I used the supplied white cable in my car for a week or so until I could get a black cable. I needed a extra charger I had to get a black one.

    Even with my Kindle Paperwhite which is black it comes with a white USB cable. I had to get a black one.

    I bought a cheap cordless phone from Radio Shack the other day 19 bucks but it's white. 😁
    I considered paying more to get silver or black but I couldn't resist the price.

    Preferences are interesting. I really like the look of the white/gold/silver iPhone 5s. I would be the first to compliment on how good it looks. I just don't want one.

    It's you ...
    It's a matter of preference. When I sold TV's, people would ask me which TV was the best. I would always point the wall of sets, and ask which one looks best to you. They would say that one (point to the preferred set) I would then inform them that was the best TV.

    Since we’re picking at the nits...

    Actually, there is NO such thing as a "space grEy" iPhone 5S, either. It’s actually called "space grAy".

    The body of the new dark iPhone 5s is space gray ... but the face of the phone - including the bezel around the screen IS black. It is neither space gray nor space grey.
