So which one do you prefer, the White or the Black?

I personally prefer the White one. It really gives it a beautiful look. But I also heard it get stained pretty easily. It is true? :confused:

White here and no problem with dirt.

Found the bottom stripe on the black Xs more dark grey then black, compared to the white that was white all over.

Sure, you can see dirty fingers fast, but they are easy to remove with your shirt and 10 sec of work.

Prefer the black one.

Still there's a bit of scratch mark on the back. I couldn't imagine the same on the white one.

White one is my preference, but it's hard to find a case who suits it.

All the stains that i did on my white one have been easily removed with a paper eraser.

Why So Serious?

I'm lucky enough to get to look at both every day as I have a black XS and my girlfriend has a white XS.

They both have their positives - The black looks a bit classier overall in my opinion, but the white makes more of an impact when you pull it out. It does tend to show dirt easier but I've found that it comes off just as easily and looks new in no time.

The main positive about us both having an XS is that I have two phones to test with :D

I prefer black, but I'd ultimately prefer a white one because I like the bottom signal thingy white and most of the fronts black
But I noticed something! My friend got the black xps ( I decided to get white btw) and the back cover and the sides much smoother! Maybe it's partially due to the anti scratch and smudge or whatever the white one has.
Also, what is that smell I smell when I open the cover, is that from the battery? And is it toxic?

I own a white one. But I think both look very good. You can't go wrong with either one.
I never had a white phone before and it was available 1 week earlier in Germany so I got the white one.

Lets be honest, white is for girls and apple folks.
I'm glad that I'm not that sexually insecure:)

I've had black, silver and white phones in the past. There is a saying round here that once you've had black you don't go back. Black is always going to be a classic color.. All the other colors are just fashions that come and go... Black will always be there, Look at the new iPhone 5 :-D

At first I wanted white one because it looks very beautiful and attracts a lot of attention, but when I got black one, I really liked it. It's huge screen looks even bigger on black panel, and when the phone is off it looks even more fantastic. I'd go for black second time.;)

I think that I would prefer white, there are not many white smartphones...
it has style, black is just a little bit to "mainstream" everyone have a black smartphone...
on the white one you can see faster dirty, but that should be no problem with the nanocoating :D

    At first I wanted to buy white one but, then I saw the phone in real, black one looked more stylish, and the transparents looks cooler on black than on white, because too bright colors make that stripe hard to see, also screen looks better with black body. As for dirt, my friend doesnt have problems with it, just try too wash your hands before using the phone. ))
