I purchased a Gold colored XS this time because I wanted to try something different. However finding a nice case to go with it is a pain in the butt. Now I wish I would have gone with ol reliable Space Gray. Anyone else feel the same? My other option is just grabbing a black case and dumping it into that one.

I bought the gold Xs Max with the intention of getting the saddle brown Apple leather case. However, now I've seen the phone, although I do love the colour, of the phone, I''m not sure about the case colour. I'll probably go into an Apple store tomorrow and see them in person before deciding.

Thats my issues, its rough finding a case that isnt the same color that matches with Gold if that makes sense. It doesnt help that I like having the Apple logo show.

I have never ever liked gold.
I am a male 26 yr old car guy and don't own anything gold.
However, I will say, seeing the gold xs max yesterday it the store. It wasnt too bad.
It a nice gold. Not too much.

I have never owned a Apple device that wasn't "black" lol

Generally, yes, regret the so-called “gold” in both phone Xs and watch S4 SS received Friday.

Not really gold unless you like “tarnished” gold.

Unsure if will return for the cleaner looking silver/SS band (my X is silver), though. Sheer laziness perhaps since already set up email and bank accts.

Will reconsider next week against regular stainless steel.

Went into the Apple Store today and did not like the gold as much as I hope I would. Wonder if the overlighting in the store to blame. Even the black SS AW looks like a mid to dark gray, which I know it does not in most lighting conditions.

Was set on gold for when I upgrade my (silver) X on the IUP, but having seen it today I'm not so sure. Hard to tell under Apple Store lighting, but it looked a lot less clean than the silver. Reckon I'll stick with silver, but go for the Max.

Nope! While waiting at the Apple store for them to bring out my phone, I got to see it in person for the first time. Made me even happier that I decided to go with gold. The stainless steel frame just makes it pop even more
