    As many of you know, there are some 5s of different color available for personal pick up yesterday. I was a lucky one to catch that. I'm here to say some first hand impression about the color...
    It's more like a light champagne than the so called gold. Actually much more low profile than I thought. Nothing blingbling like real gold or other gold staff. Here's a comparison with my Starbucks gold card

    And comparing with iphone4, it got a feeling of light sandblasting texture, which even makes it less gold again. Here's the comparison. Sorry for the dim light, it was late yesterday

    Pictures work for me. First of all, congrats on your new phone! Getting a hold of a gold one is a tricky proposition right now. Also, I love the pictures because they give a real good sense of the color. My girlfriend is waiting for her gold one to come in the mail and these pictures have made her even more excited for it, it's such a slick color. Thanks!

    Fine for me - maybe you have to be logged in to Dropbox?

    I hope you enjoy it too!

    On a side note, has anyone else noticed how almost everyone that gets a "gold" phone goes out of their way to explain how non-gaudy, non-"gold", non-flashy it is?

    I completely get why you wouldn't want it to be that way, but think it's the prime example why most people will never want one. The perception is that it IS all of those things. It certainly has a niche, but when you only produce 1 gold for every 10,000 space grey it's not hard to strum up "demand". I would have bought one to resell though :p

    Congrats! I snagged one myself yesterday :)

    I noticed that in different types of light it doesn't look Gold, just looks Silver, I don't mind though.

    Congrats! Was at the Apple store yesterday and must admit had to eat my words on the gold iPhone. Looked very nice actually.

    Looks like your silver iphone has some corrosion on it. Clean it up man! :p
