    I must say, first year ever owning an iPhone with a white front panel, always was skeptical of how everything would look without nice black borders. I must say, white is definitely nice, I don't know if because its new, but my 7+ in white looks brilliant when playing video games and watching films. I may never go back to black again!

    Plus I hardly see any finger smudges which is a plus with the kids wanting to grab the phone!

    I did, mostly because that's the only colour my local store had for the SE model and I was constantly losing my iphone 6 on black furniture

    I specifically chose white this year, felt like it would add more wow factor for me since my 6+ was space grey!

    I'm thinking about going to a Silver or Gold 7+ from my Space Grey 6+. I like Black but it's very similar to my current. Which finish did you get?

    Same here. Switched from Space Grey to Silver after having black-front iPhones since the 5. I was getting tired of the same black front. Liking it so far.

    I went with a Gold 128GB 7+. Honestly, things just pop more to my eye. Granted everyone is different, but enjoy the white front more.

    I have had black for every model released until yesterday. I intended to get black but they were gone when I got to the ATT store yesterday.

    They had plus models in silver, gold, and pink. While standing there contemplating they gave the last silver 128 out so I went ahead with the gold, no way in hell I would have taken a pink one.

    Have to admit I'm impressed with the white face. Phone seems brighter in a way, not sure why. I ended up going with the Apple leather case in black yet again, love these Apple leather cases, they keep the bulk down and the hardware looking nice.

    I went from a Space Grey Iphone 6 plus to a White Rose Gold Iphone 7 Plus. I also have the Ipad Pro 9.7 in the Rose Gold so I wanted to match it up. Honestly I love it. With a white coloured wallpaper the phone looks slick. Doesn't look quite as good with dark wallpapers IMHO.

    The black is being overdone this year I think, so i like to be a bit different (though it's hard with such a popular device obviously).

    I love the way the 7 Plus silver back contrasts with that blacked out dual camera lens housing. Very sporty.

    I had white iPhone 5, went with black on the 6. Thinking of switching back to a white face, browsing the web and reading are awesome on the white face.

    My last iPhone I had that was black was an iPhone 4, everything else was white (iPhone 5, 5s, 6) so after more than 4 years I have switched back to a black and can't wait to see it when it gets here! ONLY 4 MORE DAYS!

    I went with white. Loving it. Had black 4, white 5, black 6. Now white 7. I think I prefer white overall. Looks more elegant. Especially like the ring around the home button that the black lacks..

    I've had white since the iPhone 5 and I love it, there's just something about with white-tech that speaks to me, it looks fresh I guess.

    I've had black since the 3GS. I went with a white 6s and ended up going back to black. I think the bezels look better.

    Although I wish they would do a gold with black bezels :)

    So with some more days under my belt, i'll never go back to black. So much less fingerprint crap to deal with, and i find it much easier to read in all my news apps for some reason!

    I always stuck with Black iPhone, but White iPad always, I don't think i'll ever change since I don't really like the white look on the iPhone.
