Don't want to admit it but I bought into the new color hype. Purchased the 11 Pro Max in midnight Green and going in later today to exchange for the Silver.

Too similar to Space Gray in most lighting and doesn't match well with most cases.

I thought the Midnight Green looked nice in certain lighting but I definitely agree that it is very similar to the SG color.

I have a MG and am keeping it but if I had to order again Id probably go Silver after seeing it. Its the best looking in my opinion and Ive bought SG or black every year

I never buy the fad colors.

Silver, gray, or gold only. Silver gives the best contrast with the rear cameras.

I love the MG. Been using case with a clear back. It’s different from what I normally would get.

I looked in the store and to me Silver easily turned out the prettiest. You can’t really see anything about the beautiful form and phone design with how dark Midnight Green and Space Grey are.

for reference, I had Space Grey almost every year including last year,

I love my midnight green iPhone.... I just wish I liked the clear case better so I could actually see my pretty phone....

Not a chance. Apple must know their audience, because I dug the MG the moment it was announced and hope it stays in the line-up. It's highly probable they made this color directly for us matte/jet black 7 owners.

There's plenty of feminine colors. Gold/rose gold, pastel green, purple...but every once in a while, they'll throw in something for the dudes to make the upgrade more enticing.

Gold is a fad colour for something that isn't metal. It might be nice if they did white or black with gold trim, but it's kind of odd to have a goldish shade of glass.
Gold has been available since, what 2013? It's available for iPad, MacBook, Watch. It's not a fad color.

You'll never see a Midnight Green iPad or MacBook.

Colours are not gender specific...

I was on the fence about the green. I have been a gold girl the last few phones. But if I can be honest, the three lens housing triggers my trypophobia (yes it’s an annoyingly real thing) so I opted for a dark color to conceal the way that looks and it’s doing a good job. The green is almost blue to black or dark gray in different lighting so it’s very cool! As far as cases, I’m finding most look fine with it! Then again, I’m a little artsy and don’t mind colors clashing or being off. Here is the case I keep on mine. Shows the green nicely through the clear, has sparkles (of course haha) and cute flowers. But don’t get me wrong, this color is NOT girly. In fact most guys I know also got the same color and they love it. OP, the silver will be amazing so enjoy!

The huge 3 cameras this year is way too tacky especially on the lighter colors, so I went for the MG color. You get the best of both black color in certain angles along with green. I usually go for the white as it looks best for clear cases that I like, but like I've stated, the 3 cameras are too tacky with the silver & gold this year.

Was going to go MG but, went with SG like every year since iPhone 4. I always put a leather Apple case on my phone so, in reality color doesn’t matter In my case.

I bought the Space Gray even though I was leaning towards the green and couldn’t be happier. I have the black wallet folio and received the red leather Apple case today and I love the way it looks on it.

Nope.
I have the MG and I really like it. I have a smoke color clear case on it currently, which does darken the green even more but the color combination with the true color of the phone being visable in the camera window just works for me. Plus, I like carrying my phone caseless sometimes and this color really looks good. Happy with my decision.
