iPhone 5: White or Black?

I'd like to delete this post as I see someone else posted the same poll earlier.

I'd like to know why people think white gets 'dirty' faster. The white surfaces are GLASS, just like before. No dirt accumulates on them. If they're thinking of the aluminum surface, nothing more than finger prints and smudges... simply wipe them off.

It's a no brainer IMO. If you don't like the look of bare metal shining through the black finish, get the white one. Who knows if Apple will even get the issue fixed.

The "dirty" issue with white iPhones, at least with my white 4S, is around the seams. After a year of use, with no case, my iPhone is starting to get black lines where dirt has worked it's way in around the home button as well as between the glass and plastic bezel.

I got a black to match my black GTI

If you're going to put a protective case on it, colour is not really an issue.

I got Black. Still waiting for my case to arrive in the mail. I keep my iPhone 5 in my front pocket when I go out and it still looks the way it did when I first got it. No scuffs or scratches.. yet

black is the faster colour.
