Ordered a white iphone 4s today but now I am unsure because of the camera...
I remember reading that there was a difference between the iphone 4s black and iphone 4s white camera quality. Does anyone have any info if this is true? I thought I remembered seeing difference as far as color saturation goes and auto white brightness. Does anyone have hands on with both and noticed any differences? Thanks.

This is the first I heard of this. I did a google search and came up with nothing saying people have had different findings. I would not worry about it because if it was a issue, it would be all over the net and blogs.

I heard about the "rumor" as well. I don't see how the color of the phone could affect the light input through the lens. If there truly is a difference, I'd guess it's purely a quality control or software issue that is inherent to all 4S's regardless of color. My white 4s takes awesome pictures. I'm just comparing that to my Droid X though.

Actually - there was some concern before the 4S became available where the white iPhones allowed some of the flash light to flood the camera causing quality issues - I'm guessing it's similar to some of the issues that both black and white iPhones have when colored cases are used - (where the flash reflects off the case causing unwanted results on the photos).
From what I've read - this was corrected before the white iPhone was released. Here's one article on it.

I was skimming through this on my iphone while I was walking so I didn't get to ready all of it before class. Anywho, I guess it doesn't make much difference. Now, the only debate is if I want to keep it at 16gb or go up to 32... I will give it to my dad after I am done using it (because he will be using my 4) and I will use my upgrade for the 5.

I originally purchased a black 32gig but exchanged it for a white one before my 30 exchange was up and I can tell you there is no difference in camera quality as far as I can tell it just takes awesome pictures

Any who, as for the cam pic quality, I would suggest the OP to take a look in the "post pix taken with your 4S". I have the white 4S and the cam is just awesome
In that thread you will see for yourself that there is completely no difference with the black or white iPhone cams. They both take equally nice pix without a doubt

The difference comes into play when you're using a case. The black iPhone 4S in a case will reflect less of the flash light so you are less likely to have a washout effect. The white can reflect more of the flash light so you are more likely to get a washout effect. But this is only going to happen on certain cases most new cases for the for 4S have adjusted for this issue. But keep in mind the white is a little bit thicker than a black. This may come into play depending on the case you wanted to use.

The only difference I know of in the black and white 4Ss are the screen tint. Some of the black 4S models have a "yellow" tint to the screen. My husband has a black 4S and it's very obvious he has a yellow-tinted screen when compared to my whtie 4S.
