    Default Differences between white and black?

    Went to best buy today to demo the S5 and only the white was on display. The back was a dimpled hard plastic and not the soft touch I've been reading about. Has anyone seen the black and if so is it different from the white? I was quite disappointed with the look and feel of the white.

    Well the problem with having a back too soft is that it would get damaged easily and absorb oils and such. I think its perfect but I'm biased with me sitting here using a Note 2014 tablet

    Also I'm putting a case on my S5 right quick!

    I don't think the black has been seen in the wild yet. FWIW, I liked the harder plastic as a soft plastic would have been too easily damaged. I was pleasantly surprised by both the look and feel of the white one, but everyone's different I guess.

    I preferred the S4 to the look and feel of the white. The black and white nexus 5s have different finishes on the back.

    Omg, the way you worded that made me laugh. "The black hasn't been seen in the wild" lol.

    If you compare the Note 3 black and white versions you will notice a very different texture on the back covers. The White version has a harder plastic to prevent staining while the black version is more soft and comfortable to use.

    I have a feeling the same thing is going on with the S5 where the black/blue version will have a more comfortable back plate.

    Really? I went to play with it today at Best Buy and I loved the leather feel of the back, feels way better than the S4 and feels like the Note back
    The dimples were much smaller than I thought

    I was really impressed with the back of the s5 today. They took the improved back of the Note 3 and made it much better. I was surprised how nice the phone was in person.

    You are imagining it, have seen and held them both and they are exactly the same...except for the color that is. Don't spend too much time giving Samsung any credit for being imaginative with ascetics

    The Best Buy I went to only had the white one. I was never interested in the black one so it worked out.
