I've got a white iPhone 3GS with a cracked digitizer so I need to replace it. I've seen those white digitizers which may make the phone look more modern like how the white iPhone 4, 4S, and 5 have white bezels. However, factory is black. Price of the digitizers is the same, though if I went for white, I'd have to swap the button which is an extra $2 or so.
Here is a white phone with white digitizer.

Think I should go for white, or just stick to the original black?

Your choice dude. You're the one going to be looking at it all day. Take into account an apple part is usually high quality whereas if it's a third party part it may not be

The white digitizer is unique and different on a 3GS and I kind of want to try it for that reason alone. However, I also want to sell the iPhone so I want it to appeal to as many people as possible.
I will likely use an aftermarket part either way. I guess I can't go wrong with the stock look, I was just curious what other people think. I thought people like putting in their 2-cents, but 865 views and no opinions, I guess not.

I like it, but I'm partial to white.
I have to ask, why put any more money in a 3Gs when 4's and 4s's are selling so cheap now? Just wondering.

It's not a lot of money to fix it since I'll be doing the replacement myself. A new digitizer from China for it is only around $6 for either color. I just think it will sell for more fixed than broken. Also, I like fixing things, it's fun.

I agree, it's worth more and a 3Gs is still a nice device to own. I still have my original 3Gs and it's quick and dependable. Never had an issue. (actually have all of the phones released to date)
Post a pic if you do the conversion, may do it myself just for fun.
