The Official Black vs. White: iPhone Camera flash Battle!
There seems to be some question around the iPhone world concerning the quality of the pictures taken from the iPhone 4S WITH FLASH between the white iPhones and the black iPhones...so i figured i'd make a kind of "Official Thread" for comparison shots and discussions concerning such...
Here's Round 1...(TV was on, but provided almost zero surround lighting)
Black iPhone 4S...
White iPhone 4S...
...as you can see, the differences are fairly visible. The white iPhone certainly has a more "washed" look, black remote is not nearly as crisp or "black", and the light over the surface of the picture seems much less natural than the black iPhone's picture.
This echoes the complaints I've been reading around the web (and here)...so let's get some more comparison shots going, and I'll add some more later (wife's phone is currently charging and i don't want to mess with it).

Oh never mind. I noticed on cases that has a trim around the camera and not a hole I get pics that looks like your wife's picture (or worse). But neither of those cases would have those problems with a flash. I agree with your wife's statement. It's surprising apple would let that slide. I did hear that was the delay with the white one though. I guess that was the best they could do

Going back and checking all my iphone pictures in my portable hard drive about 98% of them were taken without flash so this is not a deal breaker to me, having said that I would like to see more shots with both iphones ( without any case on ) in different situations..

I understand that my phone should be capable of doing its job but I already gave up on flash pics when I bought a white case that makes the wash out even worse.
I am glad someone pointed out the difference though for those curious.
