For the longest time, phone manufacturers have been conservative with the colors that they use in their handsets. The usual black or dark colors were the norm. Lately though, we’re seeing more and more flagship phones that come with pristine white colors and oftentimes, they sell more than any other available colors.
Take for example these new handsets from the several brands — the BlackBerry Z10, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One X+ and the iPhone 5 (see photo below).
Of the 4 white-colored handsets above, we’ve also had the chance to use the black versions. With the Z10, the black version doesn’t look are defined as the white version. Same goes with the HTC One X+ — the cruved edges of the glass display is more prominent with the white.
With the iPhone 5, it’s somewhat a tie — the black version looks elegant but a bit subdued while the white version looks more bold and pristine, like the Apple Macbook Air. In the case of the Galaxy S4, it’s almost a tie as well.
Years ago, white wasn’t an option and black is the top choice. These days, it seems like white is the new black.
Do let us know in the comments what you think between the black and white versions of the same model of phone.
