Default Black | White | Purple choice and why thread

So, I see that the black xperia Z has highly visible fingerprints, I wonder if the white one will make them less noticeable? Can anyone with the white one confirm? Also, which colour are you going to buy ?

I'm confused between black and white

Me too. But I've gone for Black as IMO it looks better and apparently the fingerprints are easy to remove

I have the white Had Black phones for ages and fancied a change.

Finger prints are not to visible on the back.

But I still polish it every time I use it as you can still see them and it bugs the hell out of me!!

Tough choice for me. White looks great, black looks good too but has fingerprints problem. You aren't going to look at the back of your phone though.
Will probably get black because it's less visible during 'stealth' photo shoots.

I would prefer the white one but as I can't wait to get the XZ, I'm getting the black one. The Black one releases 2 weeks before the white in Sweden.

Black imo it looks better regardless of fingerprints.

I'm getting white as the full black face of the screen stands out more and that looks neat. Also, fingerprints will be less obvious as mentioned.

The fingerprints on the screen are likely to be "auto-wiped" each time you insert and remove the phone from the pocket. However, the back will always have fingerprints as your hand is going to be covering the back as you grasp the phone in your pocket. Ya feel me guys?
