    I just got a new gift from a relative.
    Good news was that it was 64GB, not 16.
    Bad news was that it wAs the "Rose gold" (ahem, pink) iPhone 6S Plus.

    Because I'm abroad, I'm not sure if the Apple Store will let me exchange it to space grey.

    Are there any other bros with a pink iPhone?

    My bad. Somehow my phone's terrible wifi made me repost this like 5 times. Mods, can you please help me delete these redundant threads?
    My apologies.

    Since you said you live abroad, where did your relative buy the phone? I guess it doesn't hurt to try going to the apple store to exchange for a different color.

    With a case on you won't even be able to tell and the resale value will be higher because every oriental person wants the faux rose gold (spray painted aluminum).

    I live in a college town, and plenty of bros opt for the rose gold.

    Keep it, put a case on it. Unless you prefer a black front?

    The whole colour association with masculinity & femininity needs to go. The notion a colour can represent ones sexuality is silly and outdated.

    Just enjoy the phone. I wish someone would buy me an iPhone so I didn't have to buy it myself every time :)

    Love the iPhone commercials with Jamie Foxx. He's got the Rose Gold.

    If you're comfortable with your own masculinity, why the hell does it matter what color phone you have? It's just a phone.

    It's not really pink when viewed in normal light

    Not for long. Holding a rose gold iPhone for too long will make an owner's penis turn into vagina.

    Better be careful.

    Put a case on it and call it a day.

    You should suck it up and be grateful a relative gave you an iphone.

    You got a free phone. What more do you want?

    If someone questions you about the color of YOUR iPhone tell them to mind their own business

    Thanks fellas.
    It's not that I think it's a feminine color, but I just don't like things that are pink (I don't wear pink shirts, buy pink electronics, pink accessories, etc).
    I'm not worried about how others will view the pink; actually I think it will be kind of funny and a conversation piece. But it's just that I prefer the sleek look of black on iPhones and when I went to the Apple Store to look at what the pink iPhone, I was kind of bummed...

    I tried exchanging while at the Apple Store, but it seems that in China, they don't let you exchange unopened Apple items (in US, they usually let you do it, even on items you purchased more than one month ago).

    Oh well, I might as well enjoy my only pink/white item in possession!

    It wouldn't be my preferred colour, but neither would slate grey. I'd take any colour for free though! If you dislike rose gold then buy a case.

    Rose Gold goes well with Rainbows Doritos. Me...I have Space Gray Without the Rainbows Doritos.

    The one I had on launch day was more copper than pink. Like you mention here, the color that is displayed really depends on the lighting of the room you're in.

    The standard gold colour looks copper more of the time than the rose gold ever does IMO.

    Part of the reason I'm upgrading is because of Rose Gold.

    Again, this also depends on the room lighting. I have a few friends with the regular Gold 6 and 6S, and the color always seems to be different. This was my biggest reason for returning my RG 6S Plus and going back to the Silver 6S Plus which I love.
