I just got my iPhone 4S in white and my mate thinks its a girlie phone but I just wanted to be different. What do you guys think? Is the white iPhone for girls or is it down to personal choice?

Cheers Joe

It's personal. Whatever, if you like it keept it. I'm not really to into what other people think. If I like something then that is all that matters.

It's totally up to you, but i know that doesn't help since you came here seeking others opinion. For me personally, I don't like seeing guys with white iPhone 4s. The 3 series wasn't as bad because the white was limited to the back. The 4 is all white and does look more feminine. Then again I also don't like seeing guys in certain types and color cars. Maybe I'm just picky. lol

I have a white one (at last!), and last I checked, I was all man. I don't understand why white is all of a sudden girly with iPhones. It is a classic Apple color, was the iPod and iMac color for a while, and it's sexy as hell, whether owned by a man or a woman. Calling a color girly or manly seems a little outmoded.

I agree!

100% female here and I have black. Colors mean what you like, not what gender you are.

Who cares what you friend thinks, if you like it that's all that matters. Just don't put a pink hello kitty glitter case on it ;)

I got the white as a change of pace. Not sure that's the right reason to get white.

I think no matter what the reason is you should get what color you want. If you are buying a certain color phone because of what other people think then you should just buy a droid also.

Joe, I think your mate is jealous of your white iPhone, I.e. why he's trying to make you second guess getting it.

Just me lol.

More information is needed to properly answer your question.

Do you carry your white iPhone in what I believe is called a satchel in Europe? (We call them purses here.)

If so, then yes, It's a girlie phone.

I decided that I'm going with a white this time. Mainly because it's different and I like to run on the edge. :)
