    I am going to get an iPhone 5 later this week. The only thing is I am on the fence about getting a white one or a black one. Who out there prefers one over the other?

    ... or not!

    To answer the OP's question: its strictly a matter of choice. Ive always had black iPhones, but am seriously considering switching to a white model with the next release... just time to switch it up.

    The white 5 is actually pretty nice because of the silver back. It all blends together nicely. I like the black "stealth" look better though. One of my main reason is how the display blends in when watching videos or something. For some reason, makes it feel bigger than white with the outlined box. I don't know. But a thing to note with the black is the possible chipping of the paint around the sides of it. Haven't been an issue for me but it does exists. Either one is a good choice, but I'd go black. I want Apple to come out with a aluminum color iPhone (like macbooks and iPads). It seems most logical LOL for the brand.

    Sums up my feelings for the black iPhone 5 perfectly. One thing I have notices is the small dings I have on my black phone show up really noticeably. I read that the white one hides the dings better.

    Other than that I love my black iPhone 5.

    I ended up getting the black one on Wednesday. I love it! Had an iPhone 4 and took advantage of the Best Buy trade in event. Thanks everyone for their input

    I got the white one. Seems to stay "cleaner" longer. Most people that I run into that have the black one, there always seems to be some of the black paint chipped. Regardless of having a case or not

    I myself enjoy the white one for pure aesthetic factors. Congrats on getting the black one though.

    Congrats and enjoy your iPhone 5. I myself have the white mostly because I also have the iPad in white. This is my first non black phone and I wasn't quite sure if I would like it.

    I had a black one. Man, little nicks and scratches really show easily. I ended up upgrading to a 32G model, and went white for that reason. It's very high end looking, I love it.

    I bought the black one for myself. IMHO the black is much slicker looking than the white version. Like others have said, the black will show the scratches and wear a lot more than the white. Whichever way you go just remember to enjoy the crap out if that new iPhone. I know I am!

    I like the black because the screen isn't right there. It's "hidden" until turned on. It is all personal preference. I had a white 4S before my black 5. I'm glad I went back to a black phone. It's sleek. If you watch movies I like the black better as well. Not as distracting. There is a reason why TVs are black to not draw attention away from the screen.

    I'd go with the black one it looks more stylish and sophisticated and also on the safe side it goes with a lot of color combinations.

    Definitely the black one as it looks more stylish and more sophisticated and also in the safe side black blends with a lot of colors.

    I have the White one and in my eyes it looks just as stylish and sophisticated as the Black iPhone 5. It also looks sharp with any case I put on it.

    I had a hard time deciding white or black. White really is gorgeous and classy I think. But then after I got it I see someone with a black one and think how cool it looks. So I got a black one too! Now I can roll with whatever color I am in the mood for.
