    Not yet. I keep it in a case when I'm at work so it doesn't get dirty.

    Just curious...
    I have returned mine and am awaiting a black one.

    I bought the white originally as I always go for black and thought I would try something a little different.
    Something that I hadn't banked on was the difference in materials and the in-hand feel of the device.

    It has a glossy plastic bezel/surround that IMO feels very cheap. It picked up fingerprints like mad and in the week I had it, even a scratch or two.
    Hard plastic back gives a cheaper feel to the whole device and is nothing like the soft-touch feel of my N7.

    I was playing with the black device in-store, a week after getting the white and that was the clincher.
    I recommend that anyone undecided has a play with them both first.

    I can tell you the black is just as bad, if not worse, when it comes to fingerprints. It's all a matter if personal preference.

    No, like my white. Though curious to hold black one since it has different material.

    I also have a case on mine, so the only thing that's different is the earpiece. And while it may look slightly odd, it really helps me determine the orientation of the phone when I'm trying to swipe to shut off my alarm clock. The white dot makes things a lot easier when I'm bleary-eyed...

    I still like it =\

    I'm really interested in this, because I can't decide between the two.
    My only "problem" is that I'll probably put a case on my Nexus 5 (black or white, it doesn't depend), so why should I choose the black one over the white one and wait something like 4-5 weeks?

    No, no regrets.

    That, however, is because I bought black. I hate white phones. Absolutely, positively, hate them and would never give more than a split-second's consideration to actually owning one.

    Yes I do, because I have really small hands and the device feels slippery. Is it true that the black version has better grip?

    No. I don't notice fingerprints on it and I'm putting a soft case on it anyway. And if I want different colors they show up brighter over white.

    I'm not one that cares about phone colors that much. I got white for two reasons. One is that it was the first available and second is that most of the rest of my phones are black now, so I got a different color so that I could tell them apart more easily.

    I should have stuck with black, as all of my previous Nexus devices were black and I kept them in red cases. That way, I always knew which phone was the Nexus. Now, I have to retrain my eyes because a white phone makes the red case look different than it did with the black phones. Most importantly, the white earpiece is ugly to me. I had hoped that someone would tell me that it was protective plastic that I could remove but alas, that is not the case.

    I think the white ear piece/speaker only looks strange because compared to the white icons just below it on the screen it is not as bright white. If it were it would look a lot better. As it is I don't notice it that much.

    I haven't used a white, so I literally have no value in what I'm saying (lol), but I was immediately turned off on the white as soon as they announced it was "hardcore", glossy plastic on the sides. The black just feels so nice with the soft-touch wrapping around the sides. But a N5 is a N5 at the end of the day...

    i got my white 32g nexus 5 last wednesday. when i took it out of the box i knew immediately i wished i had got the black version. especially after reading reports that the two phones were made of different materials. i was pretty disappointed that the white wasn't a matte finish. but, no worries, by thursday i had my white nexus 5 on craiglist to trade for a black nexus 5 and by thursday evening the trade was completed. that day and a half i was having regret. it's amazing what a black matte finish will do to your mood.

    I haven't had the black to compare but I love the white. The front looks the same barring the ear piece and the back looks crisp and clean, loving the feel of it too and will be upset when the case arrives!

    Couldn't you just have sent it back to Google for a refund? Where I live, I believe this is possible and I'm thinking about doing just that and getting a black one instead
