    Going to pick up a new iPhone 6s Plus in either Space Grey or Gold.

    Has anyone purchased the Space Grey and later on wish the got the Gold, silver or pink instead?

    I'm a man and I'm hung up on either Space Grey or the Gold model.

    Just looking for a little expert advice. Thanks.

    I got the gold and wish I went for space grey because of the bezel.

    Easy if you want black bezel, no choice at all.

    I've always gone with the Space Gray. I like the black bezels, and I can get any color I'm in the mood for from a case.

    I sometimes think "next time I'll get the white", but I think I'd get tired of it. Cases you can change, but that white bezel never goes away.

    MANY have regretted their color. You got 14 days to return it.

    Bought 6s in space gray but now I wish I had more courage and bought rose gold instead. Every iPhone I had so far was space gray/black and now I am getting a bit tired of it.

    I got it in Gold and I love it. But lately I've started to admire the silver color too.

    I bought silver cause it didn't seem common locally but it doesn't seem to matter cause it's in a case and the only way you know what colour I have is based on the Touch ID ring.

    I picked a rose gold 6s for Christmas, but recently bought a space grey 5s during the Virgin Mobile deal and paid to get it unlocked. My first "black front" iPhone since the 4, and I have to say, it's kinda growing on me :D

    This is what I'm afraid of.

    Lot 23E. Somewhere in Georgia.
    I did exactly this last year. I got a launch day space grey 6, then a space grey 6+ in December, then a gold 6+ in March.

    I almost went back to space grey in June lol!

    If you're like me, you're always wishing you'd purchased that "other color". I don't do cases or skins so color really does matter to me. I got a space grey 6s+ this year, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't eyeball that gold display phone they have at Costco every once in a while. :)

    I say go for it. To keep it all in perspective, I started to feel guilty last year about how much money I had "wasted", but my wife pointed out that my iPhone shenanigans (her term for all the running around, selling and buying I did) set us back about $250 net. One person could blow that in an afternoon at a football game easily.

    If you're unhappy a few months from now again, it's only a few more months until the iPhone 7 is out ;)

    Although what other people experienced or didn't experience doesn't really impact what you might or might not experience, does it? I'm sure plenty of people liked the choice they originally got and that's that, while others didn't but got used to it, while others didn't and wish they got some other color (although the color differs for everyone), while yet others actually did something to get a different color (whether it was exchanging or returning their phone and getting what they want or selling it and getting what they want or something else).

    Personally I think space gray looks better on plus models, and other color options on the 4.7" options. If you watch a lot of media I'd say go for space gray. But really you can't go wrong either way. Grass is always greener on the other side.

    I went for the space gray and returned it for Gold. First time white bezel and love it specially the gold ring. Not going to go with black bezel for a while.

    I got the space grey 6s plus but I wish I'd have gotten the silver or gold. I've had the 5, 5s, 6 and now the 6s plus and all have been the black variant, now I think I should've tried something different. That's the great thing about the S cycles is if you've had the first editions in a certain color you can try something different on the S model. I plan on selling my space grey 6s plus and pick up a silver or gold one.

    I have never really thought about the color of the phone. As long as it works, I am good. It is hidden in a case all day anyways.

    I thought I was stuck in black bezels. I tried both a white iPad and white iPhone several generations ago. Couldn't stand it. Not for me. At least it's one less decision from now on.

    Well last year I got space grey because that was the only colour they had in 128GB. I spent the whole year hating the black bezel. This year I got silver. I wouldn't have minded gold it would probably have been my first choice but my main issue was getting a white bezel. I'm happy with silver this time around and glad I avoided space grey and rose gold.

    I got the Rose Gold and I love it. But my work issued iPhone is space gray and I'm starting to really like how sleek it is.
    I might get a black face iPhone in September.

    I'm sure you will regrate if you don't get space grey. Hope for that and cross your fingers.

    Space grey looks slick but it's a fingerprint magnet. Sticking with silver as it's the most Apple-ish and tech looking of all and hides fingerprint smudges like a pro!

    Can't say I have, I've had black or space grey since my first iPhone.

    I got gold and wish I'd gotten space gray. I keep it in a case so I never even see the gold and I ended up hating the white bezels. Will definitely switch back to a black bezeled phone next time around.

    I've got a gold 6 Plus now and a space grey 6s as my company device and I'm thinking I really want to try out the silver again. I miss that clean sleek look.
