    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

    I always buy a clear case. Do you like ultra thin cases?!? If yes, Totallee is the one I use.

    That’s why I went with silver. I always like the white and silver phones. Gold doesn’t appeal to me. I would trade it if I were you

    I got the Gold XS Max, I like it. I put mine in a Spiegen Clear case. The gold on the stainless doesn’t look as “gold” as in the Apple Videos but still really nice.

    Hate gold. 1. it's such an ugly color. 2. it literally looks like poop with a clear case on, poop or dirty. 3. it's so old fashioned.

    A blue always looks great with gold, like Apples blue silicone or leather case they make

    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.

    I love my gold. Have a clear case on it. I usually go with silver or space grey. I figured I would change it up this time. No regrets.

    Brought the gold XS Max. More brass coloured than bright gold. Love it though!

    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.

    I regret not getting gold. Maybe once they have the 256 in stock at the Apple store I’ll return my silver for it.

    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.

    Personally I think the gold Max is hideous. I like the back, but the metal around the phone is .

    I always thought that both Gold and Rose Gold were for females.

    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

    I always say the same about silver. Especially the X/Xs silver. Looks very feminine to me for some reason
