iMore Question

I have one week to return my black for a white if I so choose. I was told by sales that black is usually recommended to frame and sharpen contents in the art world, so black is a better choice. I am not sure. I wonder if white does not frame the contents rather than melt away. Yes, fingerprints do show more on black, but not majorly. Cannot make up mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you be more specific about the item other than the color? What specific item are you referring to?

The OP said "I was told by sales that black is usually recommended to frame and sharpen contents in the art world, so black is a better choice." So, I was trying to discern what relevance that had to selecting a color on an electronic device such as an iPhone.

Taking a stab at what the OP might have meant to ask....

Darker frames make colours pop better so presumably would cause you to keep your screen brightness at a lower setting. Keeping brightness at a lower setting would result in minimal increase in battery life.
If following that logic then a darker phone might result in longer battery life.

This is what I can make out from the question.

I took the title of the thread to mean that trying to make a decision was "draining" the OP's personal battery,metaphorically, i.e. "at my wit's end" as opposed to having anything to do with the device's battery.

Some people just can't make decisions ....

See my post #6 in the thread... :)

Exactly. Beyond my comprehension why people do this ...

Because with the "Ask a Question" process we invite them to push the limits.

I do see this black outline around the screen on white colored iOS devices. Its harder to make out on black colored devices.

I don't really notice the extra glass around the screen, except when the sun hits it in a certain way, and it looks like god himself touched it.

Saying color changes battery life is like saying the black runs faster than the white model. Has nothing to do with color of device when determining battery life.

Always get a black phone, unless your a girl then you get white phone. Somethings are just that simple ...
