I want to know what the DOT is to the LEFT of the WHITE iphone 5 speaker is?! It's NOT on the BLACK iphone 5 too! Why the difference on the hardware?? I have searched through all images on Att and on Apple's websites and ALL OF THE IMAGES are like that. It's very odd to me. It kind of looks like a camera hole... but then it WOULD be on the black iphone 5 model too, and it's NOT. I tried asking Att about it and they just gave me the generic "they're the same" answer. Now this is supposedly true.... but that doesn't explain the hardware difference in ALL of the iphone 5 photos?? Can someone explain it to me before I preorder? This question is going to determine which colors my husband and I choose. Thanks!

Are you talking about on the face or underneath the phone? It's likely either the ambient light or the proximity sensor that appears on the white phone that doesn't appear clearly on the black phone (but it's there). There's no hardware difference in the two phones.

I'm talking about the part you put up to your ear. If you look at images that have both iphone 5 models pictured (black and white) its the little dot/hole placed to the LEFT SIDE of the WHITE IPHONE 5's ear speaker. Not the small dot/hole ABOVE it. It is NOT SEEN on ANY black iphone 5 models that I can find and I've zoomed in on all the different images on Att and Apple's sites. I just don't want to order 2 of these phones and maybe? get the white version.... and then have problems. Or vice versa and have problems with the black one for the "dot/hole" not being there.

Thanks.... I did go look at images of the 4 and 4S and I did see the "extra slot" above the speaker ear slot. I'll take your guys words that it IS the proximity sensor and that they just made it circular and moved the position of it on this years iphone 5. I just really couldn't figure out for the life of me why the white one had it and why it LOOKS (even though it does have one you said) like the black one does not. Thanks for all your help, it is very much appreciated!
