Any guys getting the Gold iPhone Xs Max? I currently have the iPhone X in Silver, I think the gold looks cool, but at the same time I feel like it’s more like a girl color phone? Of course nothing wrong with that, I just wish I could see it in person so I can make up my mind! I also like the SG, but I’ve heard of the stainless steel coating peeling off.

Asking the real questions up in here.

I never am one for the whole "girl color phone vs guy color phone" thing or discussion as we are all individuals and you do you!

With that being said, i have ALWAYS had space gray in all my phones due to the white facing front chins even though I enjoyed the silver and gold look of the previous phones.

This year with the front colors not being a factor, I am highly considering the Gold XS Max as it looks freakin fantastic. Though its true representation may not be accurate in videos, it does look very good.

I am wondering if the 8Plus glass black gold is a similar color.

Absolutely get the gold for the Max. It should be a no brainier since it is the most expensive phone on the planet. Transparent case. And if you happen to have a meeting with someone sporting the XR, lay it on the table for all to see wearing a slight smirk.

Ah, part of the annual ritual I guess.
Blokes expressing their vulnerablities and insecurities for all to see.

OP, if it makes you feel better, gold is just A-OK for a "manly man" to own and use.

In fact, I have a Rose Gold iPhone…

And you know what the killer is?

It's an iPhone SE!

OMG. It is both small and pink. :eek:

How do I cope you may well ask… well… pretty decently.

Just buy what you like.
Seriously. No one is looking. No one notices.

I can only speak for my phone, obviously, but nothing's peeled off. It looks pristine and is without a single scratch or dent anywhere, including the sides (space gray iPhone X).

I owned a gold 7 Plus. It wasn't my first choice but it was all the local stores had at the time. I ended up liking it quite a bit though you couldn't see much of it with the case on. Sold it quite quickly.

What does "up in here" mean? Up in where? Are you in an attic?

I've never considered a gold version only because I've never liked the white front but I'm going with the gold on the max this year, it looks amazing in photos! Gold is absolutely not only for women. Go into any luxury watch store and at least half of the male watches are gold. Get what you want and DGAF about what others think.

I am doing the exact same thing. I am stoked that the face color finally does not matter.

Exactly!

I don’t know where these guys commenting on this post against it live but living in a big metro area I see men with gold watches probably every single day.

The gold has grown on me so much and I love it right now. Probably going to get it over the Space Grey, which I got last year. What are we thinking in terms of stock: which color do you think will be easiest to get launch day?
