    Default Black Screen vs White Screen

    When the iPhone 4 white was introduced early this year, the screen compared to the black iPhone 4 was not as vivid. I just checked them both again and the differences are staggering. The black iPhone produces a cleaner white and richer blacks. No effects on clarity.

    Does anyone know if the iPhone 4s will have the same screen discrepancies? There has to be a reason for this.

    It could just be the way and angle they took the pictures, or it could be the white just makes the screen look a little different due to it being white and already so bright and the black being so dark and the screen being light.
    Just remeber: If I helped you or you think my comment was funny, Thank me

    I'm sure it's the same, but I think it just looks better on the black, because colors seem to pop out against a darker background.

    This issue is the only hangup I have in getting a white iPhone.

    I think it just appears that way because the black lets the screen stand out, there wouldn't be any actual difference in the screen between the 2 phones
