I had a black iPhone 4 - loved it. I didn't like the white one at first, but I'm a tad OCD and was forever cleaning my black iPhone 4 to get fingerprints off. I got the white 4S and totally love it.

I went with black as I had never seen a white in person and I have never liked other brand of white phones. White to me is a girl phone color (BTW, I am a female but after seeing the white iPhone in person, I can see a guy liking it. For a short time I had buyer's remorse thinking I should have gotten the white instead, but I am happy with my black. My phone is always in a case, so it isn't a big deal either way.

I wouldn't say the white one is girly, at least not naked. Adding the colored bumpers to it and it's easy to make it look like a girly phone. I have the white one. I got it because I originally wanted the white one when the iPhone 4 first came out. I sold my black iPhone 4 to get the white iPhone 4, which I paid full price for.

Pretty sure the white ones are selling really well since they were available at launch. But I still think the black probably sells more overall because it's more standard issue. And I liked that Chapelle's Show reference earlier in this thread. Never gets old.

It's almost like every time I see a review on an iPhone, their using a white one in a photo or video. I'm into the whole storm trooper kinda thing about it, but I couldn't imagine having a white one myself.

White 4S here, male gender also. I don't really think it looks girly, just nicer. I had the black iPhone 4 prior to this and I'm really digging the black. I have a black/clear bumper on i, storm trooper style.
If you can't be macho with a white phone, then you just have to examine yourself more carefully.

People just like the feeling of standing out, or having something limited edition. Like when the sidekick was a "hot item", people were really trying to get the "limited edition" ones just because too many people had the normal colored one.
I have the black 64gb mainly because I can put any color case on it and it looks presentable. Not so much with the white. I wouldn't dare carry an iphone without a case. This is my first, and I've heard stories.

I guess Iím lost as to why so many feel the white iPhone is girly. I have a white iPhone 4S and I love it!! Iím 6í4 285 lbs ALL MAN. Nothing in my DNA or daily living suggest anything girly about me. I understand itís personal preference. Some like the white just to be different, some like the white to stand out. Some like me enjoy the white iPhone because we just like the white iPhone (nothing more, nothing less). Iíve had every iPhone since the 1st one and whenever they offer one in white I get it. I just like the white iPhone. Since when did a color become only for certain genders? If you like the white iPhone and you wanna spend your hard earned money on it then get. I guess itís just me. Iím more concerned about those who feel like they have to carry a black iPhone to justify their man hood. If a certain color helps you feel more of a man then thatís a serious problem.
