    This year I moved to a black iPhone 5. Not sure if it was because I had a white iPhone 4S or because my wife opted for white. Hey, at least by getting black we won't pick up the wrong iPhone.

    Now that I have it, I'm not sure I made the right decision. With all this talk of scratching and scuffs affecting the black and slate, I'm a bit concerned. I like to keep my devices pristine and that might not be an option with the black model.

    So, what about you? What color did you opt for and are you regretting your decision?

    I was not a bid concerned about the scuffing
    I wanted white but there was no question I get son black.
    So it get's some wear ? Antiques are valued often more if you see wear as it was intented.
    Remember those old rotary phones have dirty rings on the dial holes LOL

    Id bet that a lot of the posters here have NEVER SEEN a rotary dial lol damn that makes me feel old. Not only did my grandma have a rotary she had a party line :D

    Could you imagine AT&T offering a party line plan lol

    Not a big fan of white phones so didn't have to make a decision:rolleyes:. When I picked up mine the guy beside me had a white one and let me and the sales associate look at it.

    I got the black and I am completely satisfied with it. I always think about getting white for the last 3 or 4 years, but I have never actually talked myself into it. Haha

    Rotary dials were a pain in the butt.

    I've always had black, but this year I went with white. My ipad 2 is white and I really like it, Unfortunately, I am still waiting for it to be delivered today.

    I wanted black but the AT&T Store didn't get any to distribute, so I ended up with white. My 4S was white and I usually change colors every time I upgrade, but now the pattern is broken. However, I am not unhappy... they are both very nice looking!

    I was close to ordering white and about an hour before ordering I decided on the black. My wife went with white this time.

    I don't regret going with the black iPhone 5. I've always had a black iPhone and I like black a lot more than white. I'm still a little worried about the paint on the sides, but I don't regret going black. :)
