    Are you happy with your JBi7? If not why? If yes why?
    Im happy with mine I love it i keep mine in a microfiber sunglasses bag and that keeps fingerprints to a minimum and to date no scratches.

    Yesterday, I swapped my matte black iPhone 7 at my local Apple Store for a jetblack iPhone 7. Couldn't be happier! I love design stuff, and this is a masterpiece of design.

    Also, out of all of my iPhones owned (as of iPhone 3GS) this is the most grippiest iPhone I have ever owned.
    It gives you the feel if there is a grippy case around it. The grip of the jetblack iPhone is phenomanal!
    Sometimes it kind of sticks to your hand, so not slippery as the other models which sometimes feel as if your holding a soapblock ;)

    Going caseless and AppleCare+

    I sold my jet black today to a person who wanted a jet black instead of returning it, because there are none near me.

    My impressions of the phone were great, it feels sooooo smooth and looks great!!!

    I sold it for my own reasons and I'm on S model upgrade too, I need to manage myself in gadgets.

    The only thing that bothered me was the fingerprints, oh man how much it loves them.

    I'm glad to hear so many people are liking their JB iPhones. Although I did not get the JB it is striking and I'm glad most everyone it seems who bought t likes it.

    Love it, feels like a new iPhone compared to the other colours which is a odd thing to say but it's true.

    i guess i'm happy with it, it is in a Apple leather case, so I can't really tell the difference between my 7 Jet Black and my previous 6 Space Gray :D

    LMAO my sentiments exactly. Beautiful phone but actually POORLY designed and manufactured. Such a masterpiece that Apple can't even mass produce it. Next year they will get it right. Same situation as the iPhone 5 slate. Poorly manufactured/designed. They got that finish right with the matte black, finally.

    I've now had mine up and restored for about 8 hours. I can say that scratches are definitely a thing--especially around the rear edges. But I love how grippy it is in the hand without a case! So far happy.

    Finger print magnet for sure. But looks amazing. I had a Rose Gold 6S+ and the black front is just as bad as the back in showing finger prints. This is just the nature of a black phone.

    The Rose Gold too showed finger prints, but over all less noticeable. I just wipe my phone more often now. Also I carry a case and will be getting an Apple Leather case, as soon as Best Buy gets more in stock.
