Never been a fan of the champagne gold on the i5, but my wife's got a gold 6 and tonight she received her Spigen Neo Hybrid EX Metal case and I totally changed my mind.

I'm sure I've got no chance of getting a gold now, so it appears I'll have to hang on to my white/silver Plus.

Edit: Whoooops... just saw you are in London so the website below might not work for that.

Might help locating a gold one if you want to go through the trouble of return/rebuy.

Personally I would stick with the silver... looks amazing IMO.

You're the first person I've talked to that actually likes the Gold color on the 6.

I had the gold 5S and didn't really care for it too much, it was so lightly colored you could barely tell it apart from the silver. Hopefully this time it's actually yellowish. I've heard it is, I'll find out in like two weeks :rolleyes:

I've gone gold! :D

I checked the Apple reservation website this morning and a store local to where I was working Today had one, so I reserved it and picked it up this evening!

I'll be returning my white/silver 6+.

Are you OK with the white bands on the back of the gold phones??

Really hated the gold iPhone 5S but the gold iPhone 6 looks great. Rocking the silver iPhone 6 because that's what I always get, but IMO the gold looks just as nice.

I'm a dude and I love the gold. I'm thinking about getting applecare plus for peace of mind, and going naked.

All of my phones to this point have been black. I have the gold 6 Plus and absolutely love it; it's gorgeous

I thought I wouldn't like my gold 6 plus because people here kept describing as either a rose gold with pinkish hue(obviously color blind) or really yellow. Well I am good with colors and it is a gorgeous true gold,no pink or yellow imo. I love it!! Just the shade I hoped for. I bought the Case-mate Naked Tough case in clear so I can still enjoy the beauty of the phone but the case is more slick than I hoped!

They don't look tacky or bad in person....it's weird

I have the space grey, but after seeing all in person now, the 'gold' is the nicest and classiest by far. Grey and silver look like cheaper Android phones :(
