White iPhone 4: Alternatives for Consumers

By Alan Ng - Jul 26, 2010

Are you getting tired of all the delays over the release of Apple’s White iPhone 4 handset? At the end of the day, it is exactly the same handset under a different color, so why not consider an alternative? We have picked a few of the best out for you to consider.

Personally, I agree with a lot of you that the white iPhone 4 is the more slicker version, compared to the black model which is still currently available to buy. Apple has stated that the white model won’t be available until later on this year, which is a pretty big time to wait for consumers eager for a new handset.

In the meantime, why don’t you consider another handset? Apple’s manufacturing delay is a blessing for other U.S handset makers, particularly Motorola, HTC and Samsung.

The Motorola Droid X on Verizon is a great handset, while the upcoming Motorola Droid 2 will be the true successor to the original and will come equipped with a physical slide-out QWERTY (unlike the Droid X) and 8 megapixel camera.

If you are not interested in that, then there is always the Samsung Galaxy S. It features a stunning 4-inch Super AMOLED widescreen, 1GHz processor and 720p HD video recording. The handset will also be upgraded to the latest version of Android (2.2 Froyo), while Sprint’s version, the Epic 4G may even come with some added features next month.

Motorola Droid X, Droid 2, Samsung Galaxy S and HTC EVO 4G. There are plenty of other capable handsets to choose over the white iPhone 4 – why do you need it so bad?

    I found an alternate way to have the White iPhone 4. I purchased a White Carbon Skin from iCarbons.com and my phone looks 100% like a White iPhone 4 now. I was standing in line at the mall 2 days ago and a few girls walked up and asked me how I got a White iPhone 4. . . I just smiled and said, "You like it?" She brought her friends over to see it, and whats even crazier is until I said it was a White Carbon Fiber Skin over a Black iPhone, they had no idea. The guys at iCarbons.com did an amazing job on these. Great quality, looks Awesome, and protects my iPhone. I'm happy with it.

    I agree with Sarah J. This is pretty dumb. I think whoever came up with this was just looking for a way to advertise for these other phones available. What the heck do these phones have to do with someone wanting a white phone. How do these phones make up for this appearance preference that people have. You are idiots in my opinion. Find another way to sell those other phones. I still want the apple iPhone 4. And if they don’t come out with it in white by December, I will get the black on and still be happier with it than I with any of the other suggestions in this article. I love the iPhones. They are perfection if I do say so myself. I’ve never been happier with a phone in my life.

    Look no matter what Apple does they will continue to dig their own grave. I mean it does have some great features but white or not the iPhone 4 has major design flaws. Design should never come before function and usability. Apple seems to have forgotten that.

    I mean the iPhone 4 held the number one spot in the top ten ranking on pc world. Once Apple gave that press conference they took it down with out explanation. However, http://getyourgadgetsgoing.com/ took a look into it. The results are rather interesting.

    hmm, I'll stick with the iPhone. Though the white one is delayed again.
    The iP4's picture definition …I'm speachless….personally I really like the grouping of apps much tidier than before and the camera zoom. And as the iPhone 4 high-definition video clips, watch video on IPhone 4 are so cool and amazing! and I have download the iPhone 4 Video Converter at from iFunia, Im ready for enjoying my favourite movies on the go!

    hmm, maybe I will also get the white one then this one give to my son!

    the HTC Evo comes in white.

  • FanForAll

    The EVO does come in white, as well as being able to actually be used in business, whereas the iPhone 4G is just another fantastically beautiful Apple product which, for a wonder, doesn't work because of the known design issues. Can we say Class Action Suit?
    Also, I admit to being a decades long Apple fanboy, but I need a smart phone which actually works in the business world. I would love to have an iPhone except for the fact that it doesn't do anything for business, including making phone calls.
    I'm in Portland OR and have Sprint, so I know of what I speak. I can be in the lower floors of any building here and get full coverage and no dropped calls, whereas all of my iPhone-toting friends have NO service and they drop their calls at least 20 times a day.
    I need a phone which CREATES documents (Word and Excel, as well as presentation), without having to import them, pray that I can edit them, then send them somewhere where I have to log in on my computer to print them.
    Oh, by the way, I DO, in fact, have a white EVO 4G. It's unbelievable and works much better than the WM phones (all from HTC) which I've been carrying for over six years.
    Good luck, everyone!

  • NetMage

    Totally agree – none of the suggestions come in white, do they? Or do you even know?

    Lame article.

  • Sarah J

    This is the dumbest thing I have read in a awhile. Someone who wants a white iPhone would want another model phone because white is not available? Maybe a white case? The logic in this post defies the word logic.

  • Pradeep

    oh so there's no white iPhone, your suggestion is to buy a third rate phone which is also not white?

    • lovo

      3rd rate? androids are on par with iphone in every aspect hell the droid x has an expandable memory up to 40gs thats bigger than the iphone4s 32 both have simalar processors can record in hd the droix camera is 8 megapixles vs iphones 5 and 56% of all apps on android are free vs iphone 4s 23% and android is an open source unlike apple on top of all that you can ur not tied down to at&t android are available on all carriers like verizon or sprint with superior coverage iphone is only being held back by being forced to stay with at&t
