    I have been reading threads from a long time ago (September 2013ish)
    about what color iPhone 5S is more popular within MR.

    I did see a lot of space gray (that's the most obvious one)
    Silver every once in a while
    and a lot of hate on gold.

    Many people have been saying that it's tacky because it is white/gold, and that it would look better as black/gold.

    I took some time to edit the black panels from the space gray into a white/gold phone.

    I definitely think it looks about the same as how I look at the white/gold. (It's okay)

    What do you guys think?

    I like the black/gold version way better than the white/gold one.

    Black and gold looks far more gaudy than silver and gold to these eyes, like a Rolex phone.

    If its Gold its tacky. Doesn't matter if it's white/gold or black/gold.

    Still looks ugly. Even the white/silver looks terrible to me.

    i used to love the white gold. then i got over the gold pretty quickly.
    then i loved the white silver due to its simplicity and plainness
    then i started disliking the fact that the proximity sensor and the camera are so apparent on the white face

    then i started obsessing over the Leica M9 and started loving the black, grey painted metal combination

    so now i think the space grey is the best combo


    lesson learnt: they're all good

    Looks ok, just not my taste. Glad they didn't go with something like this,

    That looks very nice.

    I personally like the gold because it's really subtle and in the right light, it looks silver. (it's almost like black with a white/silver aluminum.

    Gold is just too hard to pull off imo.

    Looks nice!

    Ewwww. This would look fine when it's new with its 'honeymoon phase'. But I can imagine finding that in my drawer four years from now.

    I prefer the current Gold 5s, it's more subtle. The black seems too loud.
