    I was planning to preorder a White Iphone 4s . before I make my mind to do it , could any body give some funtional difference between a white iphone4 and black iphone4 other than personal preference.

    Would White iphone get more dirty ? or any fading of color ? Which one would show the dust / dirt ? ( I work in test enviornment)

    Thanks for reading the thread.

    Well I have the white iPhone 4 and it looks the same as it looked when I open the box. No fading or anything. Clean as can be. Haven't notice no extra dirt anywhere.

    Yeah, it shouldn't be an issue.

    Ditto. Posted about this in another thread, I've got a screen protector on but it still looks as good as new. Also I may be biased but my dad has a black iPhone 4 and I don't think fingerprints show up as much on mine as they do on his.

    I had a black iPhone 4 and then now I have a white one and the fingerprints show up more on the Black one. I have the ghost armor on my white one and its made the phone appear less white due to dirt going on the ghost armor. Overall they're the same.

    I personally think the iPhone in white is for non business use, and the black is for business use, but its whatever you like

    I use my white iPhone for business. Hell you could get a red, pink or purple BB at one time....

    To my knowledge, fingerprints show up less with the White iPhone 4.

    I agree with Optic Dev. I have a black iPhone and my girlfriend has a white one. I'm always afraid to use hers if my hands are dirty, but it really doesn't pick much grime up on the phone. I've seen other white phones with much poorer luck but the white iPhone stays clean fairly well.

    The white iPhone 4 makes the screen seem darker in daylight, but compliments it in darker environments

    The advantage the white iPhone has over other white electronics is that it's made of glass rather than plastic, so it doesn't discolor the way other phones may. From my experience I haven't seen a discolored white iPhone 4 (I can't say the same for the plastic cased 3GS though). Other than that they are both functionally the same.

    White doesn't show as much dirt or smears or anything. The white iphone4 is a tad bigger in size for some reason.

    I'm not really a fan of the white iPhone. I don't really like electronics or anything in white much. I feel like they get dirty and old looking faster. Although it is storm trooperesque. Hmmm

    I just ordered my 4S in white! To you guys and gals that have had them in white before does the white hide minor scratches better than the black? I had some sand and dust stuck under the top edge of my Otterbox defender and made some minor scratches and pitting on the top right above my screen on my 4 and the reason I ordered white this time is looking at the scratches it seems if it was on white instead of black you would have a really hard time seeing them. Am I crazy or will the white hide some minor scuffing etc better than the black does?

    To my knowledge the White iPhone hides scratches better than the black, unless it gets scuffed with a black case or something

    I've had the 3GS in black and white and my iPhone 4 is black by default (got launch day)...I personally like white better. It's not as common and I like to be different. Plus it will match my white iPad 2 and white beats by Dr. Dre

    I've seen both in person multiple times. I must admit, the White iPhone is pretty sick! It's also newer debuting almost a year after the black version. Although, if you're aiming more for the professional look, I'd advise the black iPhone! Either way, you'll still be walking around with one of the best devices!
