Childish colors? not really.
Manly machine colors? possibly!

Really, they are just colors. Quite neutral.

Color conversions are possible, obviously not with OEM parts though. :)

I'd love an orange iPhone that was the same material as the iPhone 5.
Not burnt orange or Tennessee Vols orange…like an in-between.

I'd love a Product Red version, but otherwise black or white are enough for me.

An anodised red iPhone though would be amazing!

That red looks good on the iPhone, but I don't care for the white offset. For me, I'd like it to be all red with a silver trim around the outside.

Would you want the glass to be red though? I think that may just look a bit weird, as the shades will never match, plus it's glossy and matte surfaces that could conflict.

Maybe red and black instead?!

The black looks much better. I kind of forgot about that being glass in the few spots. So with that said, I'd like to see Apple make an aluminum model, all red, with silver or black trim and buttons with a black glass front. That would be my desire.
