Black or White iPhone?

Black or White iPhone?

How many of you Forum members prefer a white iPhone to a black one? Or the other way around?

I personally like black much better, but I have a white iPhone 3GS that I traded for on Tuesday. Liking it so far, but still wishing it was black... I'm curious because I feel somewhat like the "odd one out" white just about the only white iPhone owner amongst others in my area. I know it's simply just a color, but I know some of you have personal preferences.

I saw a guy on craigslist trying to sell an iPhone 4 that was custom-colored lime green. Looked very different from the traditional colors. I don't remember how he said he did it, (included it in the description) but I'm sure he tacked on some more dough to the asking price because that color change was likely not very cheap...

 

Scratch-proof would be very nice. Scratch-proof AND chrome would be even better.

I had a black 3GS and exchanged it for the white 4. I like the white. BUT I put a pink and white otter box on it and the more I look at it, the more it looks like a child's toy. :/

Re: Black or White iPhone?

You don't have to wait for Apple to come out with a line of colored iPhones. Just do a Google search on backplate housing for iPhones and you can customize your phone to the color of your choice. 

 

 

A few sites to visit: 

 

Here's a YouTube link on how you can easily change the backplate of your iPhone. iPhone Back Housing Replacement

 

You can also visit PhonePartsUSA.com if you are interested in colorizing your iPhone.

 

Black or White iPhone? How about both... Check out the link... Black Front/White Back iPhone

 

Not into colors? How about an Aluminum Backplate?

 

Want a colored iPhone but don't want to replace the housing/backplate of your iPhone?... Then you can do a temporary color change with Replicase. It's a snap on case that resembles the backplate of your iPhone, except it comes in colors and can easily be replaced to swap to a different color.

 

 

 

These are just a few of many sites that can help you to personalize your iPhone.  Smiley Happy

White definitely is clean. It does attract more attention, though - not sure if that's necessarily a good thing...

Yes, there are. HTC is jumping on the color choice bandwagon (EVO), and Sony Ericsson did with the release of the white Xperia X10. Rumors suspect that Samsung will join them as well.

I can see where white wouldn't show fingerprints as much!

This is true--that is one of the main reasons car buyers choose a white-colored vehicle (vs. say, a black one)...not so much a fingerprint issue, but that white-colored products (with the possible exception of clothes) "hide" dirt and other imperfections pretty well.  However, generally speaking a black product will look exceptionally sharper than a similarly white-colored product, when maintained properly (i.e., kept clean).  I mean, there is a reason why the majority of home A/V electronic equipment (e.g., stereo receivers, flat-screen displays, disc players) are black in color, but to be fair there may be a valid argument for smaller-sized electronic equipment such as iPhones and iPods looking a bit nicer in white.
