Black & Slate or White & Silver?

I have to admit, I got bit by the iPhone 5 fever and I was so tempted to get one for myself. Well, I did, and now I’m a proud owner of an iPhone 5 with the help of SMART Communications 🙂 I am not going to post a review of the iPhone 5, you can find them all over the net anyway. I’d rather write something else, perhaps my preference of color.

White & Silver

I chose White & Silver this time for a number of reasons. I couldn’t believe that I would come up with several reasons to justify this coice of color 🙂 Then again, I want to make sure that the color I’ve chosen will not give me any buyer’s remorse.

Less Prone to Scratches

While the Black & Slate looks sexy with the iPhone 5’s design, it is more prone to scratches I consulted with my best friend in L.A. who got a black iPhone 5 from AT&T and confirmed that the paint of his unit has indeed chipped. He suggested right away that I should get the other color and use a case right away, which I did.

I know that the designs of these sleek smartphones are meant to be used without cases, but that’s for another blog post.

Black iPhone 4S

Unlike the iPhone 5, I had a longer time deciding for the color of my iPhone 4S. It was going to be my first iPhone and conditioned myself to stick with the color of choice for 2 years. I decided to get white, but I forgot to mention it during the iPhone launch event. I didn’t mind getting black so I settled for it anyway. That’s basically the reason why I’m choosing White & Silver this time as my second reason.

Black is Too Common

Most mobile phones come in black. So why not choose the other color? I admit I used to find white as more of a girl’s color but it seems that men nowadays prefer this color as well. I had several white smartphones and tablets since 2010 like the HTC Magic, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and the Samsung Galaxy S3, so yeah, I like the color now.

Cases

White can be easily paired with any colored cases to fit my mood for the day. So far I’ve purchased four cases (black, blue, clear and a black bumper) and it looks like i’ll be buying more.

Up to this day I check out display units of Black & Slate iPhones 5s but I still have no regret of getting a White & Silver unit. Love it to this day and I don’t think I’ll exchange it to the other color.
