    Hi guys, I am considering buying a Lumia 950 XL for replacing my Lumia 640. I want your opinion on which colour I should go for... Black or White?... And why do you think that is better. Thanks~

    Get both! :) I think I paid $30 for my genuine white replacement back. Small drawback of the white: after half a year it developed some scratches, which stand out more on a white case than on a black one. So it looks a little scuffed by now. I do like the 'fresh' look of white over the kind of dull black back cover.

    I think it's up to personal preference. IMO, the white is more likely to catch stains but if there's a price difference between the two, I would go for the color that is less in price.

    The price of both colours are the same. Yes. I want to hear your preference.

    It doesn't matter. Buy either then swap the back for a Mozo

    You gonna put it in a case?

    Then the color of the shell really matters less. White is probably my least favorite phone color.

    Just like joe said, go for both. But if you want one, get the white one. It looks much better, although my personal choice for colour is black. But for 950xl, white it is. You can buy another back panel for some cheaper rate. Also, you can put a black case on the white lumia. Looks adorable.
    My vote, go for WHITE.

    I much prefer black phones, over white... My wife has had 2 white phones, and I can't remember if it was just one or both, but they somehow got some color bleed from the case she was using. Never seen that on a black phone.

    Think if it were the screen face area (like 650) we were talking about then definitely white, sadly though that does not appear to be an option. Many if not most people adorn their phones with a case so to me the back colour has little relevance.

    I have had the pleasure of owning both and white looks better with a clear case on this phone. Right now on my Lumia 950 I have a clear case and a Walnut Black wood Mozo cover. I alternate between that and a Lime Green Mozo cover.
    Good luck.

    White for sure. A full black one lacks any contrasting features. The white back cover contrasts nicely with the black camera housing. On the regular 950 you could go either way due to the larger silver ring around the camera being the contrasting feature.

    Clearly this should have been a poll. :) Let us know what you decide!

    I second the poll idea, but Black, also remember no matter which color you decide to buy you can always buy a case with a different color.

    I have always liked white cases, I think they are more sleak than black cases.

    Either, because ...

    The Lumia 950XL is very thin (like most new phones, too thin), you'll wind up putting a case on it, simply for grip.
    I have the Fosman TPU case on mine, relatively thin, but adds grip.

    Thanks everyone. Next time I'll do the poll. I was originally posting this from the app so there was no option here.

    Noticed this morning ...
    With the case on the Lumia 950XL, device feels nice & solid, easy to handle - FWIW

    I personally bought the white but also bought the green, orange, blue and black battery covers on ebay for like $6 a piece. that way I can switch it up every once in a while.

    If you are going to get a cover or case, then color is no concern. Otherwise, I'd get black to avoid smudge and grime grit from showing on white plastic down the road.

    I own a Lumia 950 in white and whilst I can understand why you may find white alluring, I would advise against it only because the plastic becomes very dirty after a while. In hindsight, I would go for black and would recommend the same.
