Question about
10basetom

What color are you getting and why?

I can't decide on which color to get as I like both colors, so I'd like to hear from people who have already made up their mind about which color to get. Were there other reasons aside from just personal preference? I thought about going with black, but I heard a lot of complaints about the scuffing on the iPhone 5's black paint job. I considered white, but many people say white can be distracting when you're using it in the sun. Black is a fingerprint magnet, but white gets dirty quicker, and so on so forth. I hope we can compile a summary of all the negatives and positives of each color in one place to help people make a decision on color.

I like the white better, mostly because I do a lot of reading on my iPad and the white borders blend better. I also like that the white doesn't show scratches or fingerprints very well.

I'm going for the lavender one. Or possibly burnt sienna. One of these colors matches my shoes and the other matches my hair.

If I were to get one, I'd go for "Slate" just so it matches my phone.

I went with black, but it was a tough decision. White doesn't actually get dirty quicker...

I'm getting white. All my iPhones and iPods have been black. It's time for a change. The black does look sweet, though! Maybe I'll get both...
