View Full Version : Black or White?

7th October 2011, 05:50 PM
The launch of the iPhone 4S is the first time you have a choice between black and white on launch day...
...the white iPhone 4 wasn't available on the first day, when most of the nerds on this forum would have bought it.

So here's the obvious question: if you bought/preordered an iPhone 4S... what colour did you choose?

I just pre-ordered the 64GB 4S in black (in keeping tradition with all my iPhones I've had!)

Black may be tradition, but white is currently ahead in the poll.

Tradition or novelty which will win?

Black for hubby and white for me....

My original iPhone 3G is black, but I do love my white iPad :)

White was available on launch with the 3G/s models if i'm correct. My answer, neither, i'm going to grab a black 16gb 4 when I see fit.

Pre-ordered a white 64GB, so yeah I'm sticking with the white (yes I have a white 4, I'm that dumb. What can I say, I love the look of the white phone and I couldn't wait). my 3G & 3GS where also white.

Black 64gb for me.

Actually that's an excellent point you make: I just looked at the iPhone 3G in my pocket that I bought on launch day.... and it's white :sealed:

I forget because only the back is white; the front is black and that's what I see all day! So more accurately, the iPhone 4S is the first time you have a choice between all white and all black on launch day. The old models had a black face with a white back.

About to pre order the White 64GB :)

Black 64GB next week for me :)

Decided to go white this time.
Never been a big fan of the white until the 4 shape, but it has grown on me. Plus, my wife will be getting my black iPhone 4, so it will be easier to tell them apart :D

Went with white as i had a black iPhone 4, as does the wife, so i thought id give it a go

Decided to go white this time 64GB and the wife wants my black 4.

The tradition has always been black for me, white for my wife (including iPads) but this time I'm getting white for both.

8th October 2011, 04:24 PM
I've always had black for both iPhone & iPad, as has the Mrs, but this time I've ordered White for both of us.

Now the mrs has decided this morning she'd prefer black again. Typical. Do you reckon I could call up and get it amended without loosing my place in the queue?

8th October 2011, 06:21 PM
If I get one, I'd probably get black again as it is easier to match against cases.

8th October 2011, 10:41 PM
Black 64GB for me, Black 16GB for 14 yo son (He's buying it!), and White 16GB for the Mrs (She's buying it too).

Pre-ordered a 64GB White 4S for me, then I can give it to my Wife when the iPhone 5 comes out next year aye !!

White 32GB for me

9th October 2011, 03:45 AM
I will be lining up Friday morning for a black 64GB! So excited :D

Black, so when I watch movies the black border in the movie blends in with the bevel on the device rather than having it stand out.

10th October 2011, 07:28 AM
I'll be getting a black 32gb. I had a white 3G and loved it (purple translucent covers looked far better over the white)
I got an iP4 on launch so obviously went black, then jumped ship from Optus (via TIO) and got another black 4.
I'll be going the black 4S as i cant stand the white face. if the back was white and the front black like on the 3G/S id go white. Alas...
