    I originally started with the iphone 5 silver/white model and loved it.

    I wanted to switch it up and get a Gold 6+ but the longer I wait for it to become available, the more I want the silver model.

    1)I went to the sprint store today and they had a 6+ gold model and it didn't look bad, but the white bands on the back kind of breaks up the flow.

    2)Silver models seem to flow/match better and they're actually available to buy in my area throughout the day. I haven't seen one 6+ available in 5 days.

    Would you get the Silver or Gold?

    I actually like Silver the most.

    I wish the space gray was more darker but I like the black front so I went with that.

    I went from a gold 5s to silver 6 plus. I loved my gold 5s but now equally love my silver 6 plus. I used a clear case though for the 5s and am using the apple navy leather on the 6 plus.

    I will say that I'm not a fan of the back of the gold 6s, but that would be irrelevant with a leather case. I will also say that I thought about exchanging my silver for gold, but I think this phone looks great in silver with the navy leather case so I'm keeping it.

    I got my first white iPhone after having black since the first one... I got silver, and really like it.

    That being said, I think the space grey 6 is BY FAR the best looking out of the three. If I could switch my plus for one, I definitely would... Apple really brought out the 6's design with the space grey color.i can see why they are advertising it so much...

    I originally pre-ordered the iPhone 6 Plus in Silver, but of course 3-4 weeks wait so I decided to see if Apple store had them in stock on launch day. Surprisingly, I went there around 1:40 PM, and around 2 PM, they had 6 Plus's available. They either had it in SG or Gold. I went with Gold because that was my second choice. I just don't like the Space Grey's. So I ended up canceling the silver 6 Plus on Apple.com and went with the AT&T 6 Plus Gold 128 GB.

    I did play around with the silver when I visited the apple store last few days and it's not like the silver on my iPad Mini Retina. The silver seemed very plain and I did not like that so I made the right choice in going with the Gold color.

    i bought the gold and like the color a lot but the Silver looks really sharp. I can see why many love the look of the Silver.

    I went in to get the silver 6 Plus but ended up walking out with a space gray 6 Plus

    I wanted the gold at first but the more I thought about it realized that I loved the silver more. Very happy with my choice.

    Gold with the darker brown leather case looks amazing.

    I wanted to order silver, as always, but it was unavailable on Apple Store App pre-order for 64GB 6+ so I ordered gold. I was afraid I would hate it (and be pegged as a Kardashian :eek:) but mine arrived flawless with a perfect screen so I choose to be satisfied this go-round with what I've got. I can always go back to silver next year and FWIW everyone around me really loves the gold.

    If only the Gold 6 plus didn't have those white bands! Only thing I don't like :/

    I've been debating the exact same thing with the regular 6. On the one hand I really like how the gold Touch ID ring looks around the home button. On the other hand I like how the bands on the silver model blend in better than the ones on the gold. Right now I have no intentions of using a case, but I will consider it if the device proves to be slippery.

    Gold is by far the best to look at in person.

    I have the 6+ space grey and a friend has the 6+ silver and we both want the gold after seeing my gf's 6.

    It's not gold anyway. It's a bronze/champagne sort of colour. Looks classy and subdued. Not ostentatious as the name gold would suggest.

    Apple are ridiculous for calling it 'gold'. It attracts pointless negativity.
