White or Black?

Seems like the black one they just painted the side stainless steel with black paint, will it chip or get dull in times, because it seems like the white one is still bare stainless side with no paint? Share your thought so I can have a better judgement on what color to buy thanks

This will make you laugh more, I ordered a white case. It arrived today and my iPhone 4? Well it almost fits it, a little gap at the top, shit I don't know what to expect but am happy I went for the 5 based on the early reviews. I think there may be a few people on here regretting some of the shit they have been churning out......

Lol I thought I would be different, won't know if I can swap untill the fat lady sings or in my case the Ginger sales assistant spots me and takes pity..........

I think so too, the black looks classy as the white, but the painted stainless steel Side might get DULL after sometime, that is my only concern, any think the same????

I went with the black. I highly doubt the black paint is going to "chip" off. I think some people misjudge the build quality of these device.

Yea its not like it was spray painted but Im sure if you gouged it nice you would see the plain aluminum behind it but if you tend to drop your phone i suggest you put it in a case anyway. For me Im going with the Stealth Bomber Black....naked of course

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was pretty sure the black "paint" was in fact anodised aluminium as in the colour is fused to the metal on a molecular level. But yes going with the stealthy black.

Owners of Black iPhone 5 - have you guys got your iphone scratched yet?

I have seen 2 black iphone 5 today and they got severely scratched in 1 hours.

4-5 places got such badly scratched that silver part has come out. and these iphones were just put in the pocket and users connected charger. thats it.

so, i havent opened my black iphone 5 yet. and thinking if apple will exchange a black unopened iphone with a white one?

cheers

The black sucks because of the black on the band. Chances are it will scratch way to easily in that general area. I think the white (silver band) will show less scratches. At least it wouldnt be as much of an eye sore as opposed to the black one.
