White iPhone gallery

White iPhone 4 hero

And here's the white iPhone 4 gallery, also 10 months in the making. We've got it side-by-side with the black iPhone 4, focusing on whatever little details and differences we could find. There looks to be an almost translucent edging around every seem. The proximity sensor is white-free, and while my black iPhone 4 (bought back in July) shows no sign of it, my white iPhone 4 has bright, visible light coming out of the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Check it all out in full on gallery glory after the break!

Update: Added white iPhone 4 vs. white iPhone 3GS pics

Yes, your case will probably still fit the 0.2mm thicker white iPhone 4

White iPhone gallery


Congrats to everybody who waited so long for it. I still think the black looks so much better, too bad it has to live inside a case.

all those millions in R&D to get the design "just right" so you can slap a junky plastic screen or case on it. yeah. kinda defeats the purpose of the aesthetics of the phone.

I've had an invisible Shield on my last phone for over a year. (it was also a slippery phone: Palm Pre) Dropped it many times, and held up pretty well with the shield.
Just bought an iphone 4 and another invisible shield. Why ruin the sleekness with a bulky case?

I've been going caseless on my iPhone 4 since October now. Not one scratch. It's really a shame to hide such a beautiful phone behind a case. It's worth the $30 (for the back) or $129 (for the front) I might have to shell out on the slight chance it shatters. I mean, people already spend $50+ on cases. That's just me, though.

Totally agree with you. All I did to mine is 3m di-noc to give it a little character but the shape is still visible. ^_^

so what you're saying is that the color is now white? and this requires 5000 articles? journalism rules.

hey man, i follow the iphone blog so i can read news, not 50 updates in my reader about a different color. this is not news. maybe you're right, maybe tuaw is better. they don't sensationalize this crap.

Will be interesting to see what problems the white iphone has; prox sensor, light leaks, fade in sunlight, paint issues, antennae attenuation. Please test and let us know.

I think the White looks better, but I think if the larger screen for next iPhone is true then it will be better I prefer bigger screens tbh.

Ha ha. Was having a big discussion at my job (restaurant) today with my boss about this. I told him too bad I can't trade in my black one for a white. He said I'd have to be crazy to wear a white phone on my belt 'cause that's girlie! I couldn't believe it. Most of our customers we asked were split on it. I never thought white was girlie, or does it depend on the item? lol.

These notions of masculine and feminine colors change as time passes. Did you know that a few decades ago baby boys wore pink clothes and baby girls wore the blue ones?

I hate how the front looks with the black screen. Now the back is very nice, I wouldn't mind having JUST the white back on my iP4 (kinda like the white 3gs).

Absolutely agree. I've been wanting the white one for a while, but I won't be getting it because of the black screen.

How pathetic. Come on Trolls. Go out there and buy a white one. Hopefully you guys will get a free bumper too. losers. Apple sucks more than a hooker at a truck stop.

I would love the white, except when it is off, the front "off" screen looks out of place (since it is black). If they could find a way to make the off screen white, I would be all over it.

I do love me some White iPhone. Thanks for the pics. Since I can't get one, this helps satisfy my ridiculous need to look at the white one all day.

I was originally holding out for White but it's taken so long. So will upgrade to 5. Would like a 5 with a 3GS white back (best of both worlds)
Sorry but I don't understand those with bumpers/cases, they look awful. Just hold in tight or get a nokia...

It looks great and the razor-sharp Retina display seems to shine even more. At the end of the day, I prefer my black iPhone 4 and now that the jailbreak for iPad 2 appears imminent, I shall get another iPad 2 - in black - but this time I'll make sure that the screen doesn't bleed and that the colors and black levels are at optimum levels. Grrrrrr.......

Is it just me or does the white iPhone look, "ribbed for her pleasure?"
I'm talking about the raised area around the home button and the border of the phone in general.

I prefer the terms African American and White: non latino. Just like in job applications. Come on Apple, get with the PC times here.

I still find the iPhone 4 too rigid. Don't get me wrong - I love the new functionality and everything... it's just the package.

The big question is; Did Apple fix the problem?
I don't think so. Just wait for people to complain, in about two months from now, that first 2 a 3mm around the screen is getting darker.
White iPhone? No thanks!

To those whom recently purchased the white iPhone, i'm curious as to know: does a privacy screen protector go well against the white (front) surface?

I wanted my 100th assessment to be a specific [b][url=http://www.dlouisvuitton.com]louis vuitton[/url][/b] 1 so I saved it for a critique of Neiman Marcus and exclusively for Janelle who operates at the Laura Mercier counter in the cosmetics section. I have been a consumer of hers for many years and even followed her from keep to retail store until eventually she located her house the following at Neiman Marcus. I remember seeing her at the initially retail store she labored at imagining how fairly she was and how great her make-up looked so I requested that she do a make-up software for me. I loved how it turned out and how sweet she was and I have been a pleased customer of hers at any time due to the fact.
I went to try out to exchange a [b][url=http://www.glouisvuitton.com]Louis Vuitton store[/url][/b] wallet that my boyfriend had given me as a reward for Christmas. He purchased it from the Neiman Marcus in Palo Alto, but we made a decision to strike Union Square to verify out Chanel in instance Neiman's didn't have what I desired. The store is modest. Barely any choices or range. I asked for a black quilted bi fold wallet. Absolutely nothing. i didn't even see the wallet that my boyfriend purchased for me on display. Returned the wallet and walked across the street to the Chanel Boutique. Go to the Chanel store. Additional wide variety and coloration choices.
She is quite valuable and experienced on all things cosmetics with out staying pushy and if you are seeking to get your make-up carried out you will not be disappointed [b][url=http://www.clouisvuitton.com]louis vuitton designer[/url][/b]. I always get compliments from her co-workers and random buyers when she does my makeup and the compliments continue even when I depart the retail store. Flawless skin? Check out. Thicker lips? Check. Incredible eye make-up? Check. She's acknowledged for her brows while and I have to acknowledge, my eyebrows start looking thicker and much more arched when she does them.
Wonderful staff, exceptionally handy and at least for me, zero pretension. I generally shop the fragrance and cosmetics sections'. I know [b][url=http://www.clouisvuitton.com]louis vuitton[/url][/b] they are on commission but they know when to back again off if you are just searching.
I also appreciate the actuality that I can walk in with my well behaved dog and not get hassled (yes i have turn out to be 1 of those ladies!).
Most of the skin treatment consultants know their things. The girls' at the Kiehl's counter had been proficient, humorous and down to earth.
I typically shop Saks, but the consumer company here is much better in excess of all.
At Neiman's you get substantial good quality products with similarly stellar purchaser company [b][url=http://www.hlouisvuitton.com]louis vuitton[/url][/b]. Effectively worth the journey downtown.
The Freshmarket Cafe is yummy as very well and wonderful for men and women watching!
Laura Mercier products are fantastic and I'm a large admirer of their lotion and facial pores and skin treatment. The pistachio lotion smells wonderful and I've gotten tons of compliments on it. I had a TSA agent explain to me I smelled like a churro (in a good way) after she did my pat-down haha! Their merchandise are on the costly side but you get what you pay out for and they final a very prolonged time.
I will include that I am also a normal buyer of Joe in the shoe division. (Or as substantially of a regular as can be thinking about how high-priced most of the objects in this retailer are!) He will consider care of all your shoe-browsing wants and can even aid you invest in goods from other departments. He's extremely helpful with a fantastic sense of humor and had me cracking up the 1st time I met him following someone referred me to him. He will make your searching experience even much more entertaining and enjoyable. I will say while that all the sales associates in the shoe department are rapid to supply their aid which is often good.
One particular far more thing I want to add: I would certainly recommend grabbing a bite at their restaurant The Rotunda even if you do not plan on executing any searching in the store. It can be bought a fantastic watch of Union Square and their popovers and lobster au gratin are remarkable! Pleasurable spot to have lunch :)
A buddy of mine introduced me a cookie from Neiman Marcus the other evening and I was a little bit skeptical about it. I looked at it on my desk and asked myself how could a cookie from a division retailer be very good? I touched it a bit to truly feel if it was a challenging or delicate cookie and it was soft, my favourite. Nevertheless questioning if eating this would be a miscalculation, I began unwrapping it from its stylish Neiman Marcus embossed cellophane envelope. My initially instinct was to smell the cookie to figure out what sort it was as there was no noticeable indications as a result of the envelope these kinds of as chocolate chips. It was a peanut butter cookie... I'm not a supporter of peanut butter cookies so I place it down. Soon after a few minutes went by and I had labored myself up into a frenzy fundamentally fantasizing about this cookie, I had to look at it. I broke to completely baked, moist-centered cookie in two and noticed a red filling start off to ooze from it. I'm not commonly a fan of using the center 1st bite as I like to save it for final, but this was various. I had to taste this.
*You can come across a collage of make-up that Janelle has completed on me on my profile website page.
