    I feel like I'm the only one that liked the black silver combination. Looked more premium to me.

    I got matte black and it's just so boring. Any other space grey fans?

    I like the double colors. iPhone 5 slate was tbe best color combo ever, 5S/SE with the space grey is great too.

    I currently have a space grey 6 plus, and would've liked space grey again.

    Will be ordering the matte black, as my OCD won't allow me to own the jet black, and I don't want a white front.

    OP is bored of the colour scheme......not the hardware.

    I'm sorry Space Gray is no longer a color option. I got matte black. Would love a rose gold with a black front.

    Never like the space grey to be honest. The matte black is stealthy looking, although I recently purchased a brown leather nomad case for mines and it looks pretty good.

    Nope, I've disliked it ever since they got rid of Black and Slate.

    It looks basically silver, and three years of light Space Gray is enough.

    I thought I would miss it. Just went to the store and I love the matte black. Don't miss SG at all. Now my watch would be another story. ;)

    It was just so popular, I think that's why I got tired of it.

    I just wish more colors didn't have the white front... then I would barely care what I had. :)

    I liked the original space grey that debuted with the iPhone 5S. That was the darkest version Apple ever did and was a nice middle ground between the slate finish on the iPhone 5 and plain aluminum. But on the 6 series and later, space grey became just a slightly darker shade of silver and I wasn't as big of a fan. Also, the new matte black looks really really nice!

    The space gray 6 series, in my opinion, was just a silver iPhone with a black front. Except more dull than the actual silver. I think it was the most boring iPhone color yet, and I'm super glad to have a true black again!

    Amen to this. I cannot stand the white front.

    Personally i missed the black face on my 6+; but opted for the rose gold for a change last year, soon to be replaced with the incredible matte.....back to black i guess:).

    My 6S+ was space gray and I've had black faced phones since the beginning but I went with the silver this year and I love it.

    Whites the new black :cool:

    Nope, not missing space grey at all. The space grey on the 5S looked good, however on the 6 and 6S the space grey resembles silver too much.

    Only on the iPhone 5 design series like 5s and SE.

    Nay to the space gray from the 6 series.

    When I saw the OnePlus 3, I was hardly impressed by its design. Apple hasn't wowed me in phone design in years. Maybe since iPhone 5s? Or maybe the 4? I knew while matte black iPhone 7/7+ will be more resistant to smudges as jet black, it just felt kinda meh in design. Mainly because I really wasn't in love with the slate iPhone 5 either thanks to Scuffgate.

    Neither black options are terrible. You can argue both options are the best for the 6-like series design. Black looks a darker shade of the space gray with a hint of slate 5 that I didn't care for. While jet black could be ugly in real life and sleek in promo shots. A slight throwback to the 3G/3Gs. I just figured both black options would lose their luster rather quickly once the excitement of getting it wore off.

    Only took a few days for the luster to wear off to the thread starter with the matte black. Millennial ADHD alert! Just kidding! ;)

    Love my matte black. I was never a fan of space grey, though. I think the matte black has a very high end, James Bond sort of look/feel.

    I hated space gray. Glad they're back to black.

    To me , colour is irrelevant as i always use a case. But if i had to choose, i would go with matte black. Space grey is nice too, Jet black looks like a chinese knock off.

    It's strange that they got rid of the space grey, they got rid of the black on the iphone 5 because of all the marks it made. Pretty sure gonna be the same issue on the 7.

    SG is done with.. need more colors.

    they should add more colors like the Ipod but limited, then they will how popular others are.
