    Default iPhone 4S Black or White? What do you like better? Want to hear from you all!?!

    I placed an order for the iPhone 4s in White but Im wondering if I should have gone with the Black. I still have some time to call in and change the color so was wondering if you all can help me decide. I know its stupid but seriously I really cant decide. So I want to hear from all of you who have either the black or white and if you wish you went in the other direction and vice versa. Thanks in advance.

    I had the black and now I have the white...honestly I kinda like the white better. It's not as common which makes it feel sort of different. They're both nice, and I could really go either way but the white just seems a little nicer to me.

    Thanks for the reply. See Im sort of in the same boat. I currently have a black and theres something about the white and is why Im thinking of going in that direction myself! I think there both nice as well but Im just wondering if the white may be to bold? Thats why I figure I post and see what you all think. lol

    Well I had a black iPhone 4, sold it and got the black 4S...then have my black 4S to my wife and got the white 4S. Lol. I've had several phones over the past year. I like the white because in my case, if I am not at work I can use the phone in a thin/light case that shows it off but when I go to work I use other cases that hide most everything but the screen (otterbox or ballistic), so when I use those cases you really can't see that it's white anyway. Just another way to look at it...depending on the case, you may not see what color it is anyway.

    I originally bought the black and returned it for the white because all of my previous iPhones were black, and I wanted something different. I really love the white. I was a little self conscious taking it out at work, but nobody really cares that you have a white or black phone. Both colors look great. I like not seeing fingerprints and pocket dust as much as I did on the black. If you like the white, I think you'd regret passing on it because of what others might think.

    Since you ordered the white, I think you should stay with it and try it out: if you can't live with it, just return it for the black model.

    Yeah I forgot about that part..white doesn't show lint and fingerprints as bad..or at least you can't see them as easily. White ftw!

    I kinda wish I had gotten a black. My white one always gets dirty. At least it would be less noticeable one the black

    The white iPhone just seems pretty feminine too me...I'm undecided really. Still got 2 months before I can order a 4S.

    I've had both when it came to the 4. I liked white much more so got the 4S in white again.

    How does the white show dirt more? I keep my phones pretty clean so I don't understand how they could get to the point of being "dirty", regardless of the color. If anything, the white stays cleaner than the black to me...kinda like how a black car shows smudges more than a white car. As for feminine, yeah I thought they too at first but now not so much...got my Crimson Tide wallpaper that goes pretty good with the white so it sort of looks like an Alabama phone. Lol

    After having a black 3GS and 4 I opted for the white 4S and love it... It's a change from black ... Both look gorgeous but I just needed change and absolutely love the white

    And that's how I voted

    Some people say that on the white iPhone you see a black outline between the screen and the phone that you would not notice on the black? Not sure if this is the case for everyone but I guess some notice it? Comments

    I, too, have always had a black iPhone until I got my 4s and the. I switched to white. I really like it.

    And there is a black outline around the screen but I honestly haven't really noticed until reading about it just now. It's not a big deal to me.

    If you got the white, I would give it at least a week or three. If you don't like it you could always return it before the "test period" is over and get the black one.

    WHITE! I actually picked out my case first before I decided on what color phone. I've got a red Element Case Vapor COMP, and decided that white would look sweet with it.

    Ever since they've had white avail I've always loved the look of it

    When I got my 4S in Nov, its what I went with right off the bat.

    Hmmm...nope. Just checked mine and I don't see it.

    edit: if my screen is on, then yes there is a thin black outline.

    I prefer the black one...had a white 3GS, and honestly, as simple as it sounds, it just felt effeminate to me, so i've bought black iPhones ever since.

    I bought the black. I had a white ipod shuffle back in the day and I just always though it looked dirty so it was a no brainer for me

    Black one. White has too much glare. Important since it's parked in proclip mount for at least 2-3 hours a day.

    How would the color affect the glare?
