    Default white to black

    Ordered the white s5 but saw the black in store today. I am exchanging for the black since IMHO it looks much better than white and even better than the black s4. Anyone else considering switching colors?

    If I was a girl I would get white. The black back has a much better feel than the white.

    I'm very much not enjoying the white back. Hard plastic. The colors are so much better. The blue is to die for.

    I wasn't impressed with the white in store models. I LOVE the way the black cover feels, almost makes me want to not use a case.

    I like the white because the front plate looks nice with my champagne colored case.

    The Moto X was like that too. The white felt terrible and the black felt great.

    Blue and black that I saw at MWC were the same, iirc.

    I am considering it. I, too, ordered the white and have that, but I have had white iPhones for years and might be ready for a change. How did your exchange go? Was it a hassle?

    Mine was simple. I backed everything up to my SD card. Att exchanged no issues. Paid $35 restocking fee but oh well. Black feels much better and looks better.

    Once you go black baby you'll never go back .

    Ordered the Black my self . Wish they had done a cover in Carbon . I would have really lost it then .

    Coming from a white iphone5 im seriously loving each and every second I use my black galaxy s5. Its way classier than the white in my opinion and its the same color as the screen so colors POP.

    I swapped mine too. The back feels so much nicer on the black. I am much happier with it. Just not happy about having to set the whole thing up again. I did have to go to 2 AT&T stores though to find a black one. Stores in my area sold out of their stock by 7 pm
