    Really? How freaking shallow can one be? It would seem to me that there are other, significantly heavier issues to be dealing with in today's world than whether or nor one should dump a black smartphone for a white smart phone. Just freaking do it. Or don’t. But put on your big boy pants and make a decision. Then live with the major, life changing consequences of having made a decision.

    The 5 was the first iphone i bought in white, for me in hindsight i prolly would have gotten it in black, all my other iphones have been black, but i wanted to try the white and i really liked the look of it, but for my job, a leadman in a steel factory it so unpractical, its always fully cased but i even hate the case getting dirty lol so to answer you question i would take into consideration what you will be doing with it everyday

    hey buddy I didn't know you was here :-)

    I got the White 5 with a black lifeproof which turns it black except for a white back logo cut out (look at me I have an iphone) and a thin white screen outline
    I've been in stealth mode.. I'm a webOS developer and fanboy ya know. As you may have seen, I only switched when work started blocking all Palm devices from the Exchange server.

    I have a similar setup on mine. I have the white 5 with a black Otterbox Commuter case. One thing I hate about iPhone cases is the cutout for the logo. I'm trying to come up with a way to hide the Apple logo that won't look tacky. I think if I can make a Maverick emblem small enough it will fit in well with the rest of my gear.

    I had the black and then bought the white and sold the black to a friend. The white looks great. I'm so glad I switched. Not that the black looks bad, it's just that the white is that sexy.

    I got black & traded it in for a white. White in my opinion looks much better especially with a black case on. Plus on the black iPhone I had this rattling issue if I shook the phone & the screen had like a brownish tint while the whites screen is pure black & nothing rattles.

    I can't have a white phone. I love the two tone combo of the black iPhone. It's so sleek. I think the white one looks ugly, the chrome bezel does not match the white at all! YUUCCCKKK. Even my gf who has had white since the 3GS decided to get black this time.

    I was the first person in line at my local AT&T on launch day, I asked for a 64GB Black but they didnt have any in stock so I got stuck with a white one. Wish I could of got black.
    That's because you settled. Anytime you settle you will be always bothered that you didn't get your first choice.

    Aha, white or black definitely depends on personnal favor or needs. Well, I like white, just like White, though it sometimes is easy to get dirty.

    I prefer white cause most of my friends have black. Easier so we don't get them mixed up. I got the black with my 3G, but since 3GS I've had white.

    I first got the black one but returned it and swapped it for a white within a few days because I was getting massive fingerprints on the whole screen, the back looked dirty just if you rubbed your fingers over it & I just didn't like how the black back looked. Also the black iPhone 5 I got had this issue where if I shook it something felt loose and the screen had a dark brownish tint on it. As well as the two toned black is ugly in my opinion & it doesn't even look truly black like the iPhone 4/4s. However on the white iPhone, I slapped a black case on there & I think it just looks much better lol. The screen didn't have a brownish tint & was pure black. Nothing was shaking or rattling so I'm happy with it.

    I got the black because it has the uniform look to it. I didn't like the silver and white look of the white i5. I always keep my phone in a case though and would like a white bezel. After my i5 is old enough I may get aftermarket parts and go for a completely different look. I plan on keeping my phone to use at home after I upgrade. I had to swap out my phone due to a bad lock button and simply buying and installing a new glas.tr screen protector made me hesitant about the swap. Wouldn't want to be locked into a phone due to aftermarket parts while it is my actual phone.

    All kidding aside this was a difficult decision for me too! I ordered the black then changed my mind and exchanged it for a white one instead. I had to jump thru a few hoops at Verizon but left with a shiny new oh soooo pretty white i5

    I think it is interesting that we don't make those decisions from the beginning. I did the same thing that you did. I don't know why I chose the black to start. Now looking at them it is clear that the white is sexier. IMO.
