    ive always wanted the rose gold since the 6s launched, but just had a look at my sisters SE and it looks awfully pink in certain light .

    Wandering if I should change my order, still 28 days away. Front has to be white as dirt shoes up less. Silver too boring, gold only looks good in natural light.

    How many guys ordered rose gold. Do you regret it or are you enjoying it?

    I personally wouldn't class Rose Gold as a feminine option (as your post insinuates).
    I had a Rose Gold 6s before I traded it in from my Black iPhone 7.
    I rarely saw the "pink" shade.. it was mostly bronze to me.. even the white antenna lines didn't bother me as much as I thought they would.
    I had wanted a white face similarly to your reasons.. silver was nice and gold to me was not done right on the 6s (gold on the 5s was much nicer).. so I picked up a rose gold 6s as it had the wow factor of a new option.
    I was very happy with it until I saw the stealthy black iPhone 7 reveal (even though I hate the prints showing on the black face).
    Sorry about the long post.. in summary.. get it and enjoy! :)

    Would never buy the rose gold color for me. I could not do the white bezels anyway. More into black and business looking phones.

    Yep, the bronze look is what I was going for and this post makes me feel better. The gold 5s I have in natural light looks like it has a very slight rose tint and i wished it looked like this all the time, so I've decide I go for the real thing !

    I used to have a black iPhone 6 and while I enjoyed it, always looked dirty, home button in particular never looked clean. White front always looks cleaner

    1. I only like black bezels.
    2. Pepto should be a coating for stomachs, not for aluminum.

    I would assume a man carrying a rose gold (pink) phone is especially confident and self-assured. It's a sign of strength.

    In the 1980s, wearing anything rose gold would cause some stares and strong language to popup, even if you were in a very affluent area. These days? People don't give a damn. Personally, I don't like gold color anything and don't like rose gold as a result.

    Rose gold is not really gold at all. It's pink.

    Yup. Exactly. Pastel pink at that.

    Who cares if you are a male and use rose gold?

    Who cares what other thinks, do what you want

    There's a rose gold?

    JK. It's not for me. My wife and daughters have that color. MB for me.

    I had the 6s in rose gold, went for JB this time round. Only because I wanted a black front. If there was a rose gold with black front, I'd pick that.

    lunch break at the job site all the guys joking around and being jovial stopped all at once when they saw I had got a rose gold iphone. After lunch we got back to paving and pouring concrete I felt like I had a pink phone, not rose gold.

    Apple actually made the shade of "rose gold" even lighter (lighter pink) as compared to when they first launched it with the 6s. True that it doesn't always appear pink, especially under warm light or poor lighting condition. It is really pink under bright lighting (think Apple Store lighting and outdoor sunlight) conditions.

    They being said, it looks really nice when the copperish shade shows.. just go with what you feel like getting. In a worst case scenario, you can always cover it up with a case or a full body skin

    I think it's an awesome color, but I'm not going to try to fool myself or anyone else by arguing that it isn't pink. Unfortunately, I prefer phones with black bezels, so I'll probably never own one.

    Funny you mention that as I must travel with a dirty crowd as when I have seen my friend's iPhone with white bezels it seems to show dirt or debris contrasting with the white bezel at the home button and where the glass meets the casing. These areas looked a little grungy.

    I think that people who like the way the RG looks should carry the RG. We've all had pretty much every color in my house and right now, there are 4/5 people with a RG phone and half those people are men. :)

    My husband refuses to own anything but a black-front phone, but he's just a minimalist. He has no problem with pink any more than he does silver or yellow gold.

    I'm getting a Jet Black and returning my RG. Not because I dislike the RG. My 6s plus was a RG. It's a gorgeous color. I just feel like the JB will yield a higher resale value.

    I expect the smudges on the black screen to drive me bonkers. I haven't carried a black-screen phone since the iPhone 4.

    I thought so, too. Looks better now. At first it was too pink.

    The smudges do get to you. Have to wipe my black phone down a lot more often.

    No matter how many times this type of thread comes up, ultimately what's mentioned above is the only worthwhile and realistic thing that it all comes down to.

    It actually hasn't changed much from the 80's except for the fact the younger generation are more tolerant and accepting and the older generations just don't say anything anymore for fear of not being politically correct. A male with a rose gold iPhone still gets plenty of stares and unsaid thoughts...but, like others say, who really cares? If it makes you happy, do it! :)

    These are all just colors. Colors do not have an assigned sex. Get crazy.

    Off topic today but I read an article where someone was complaining about a canoeing event as they said that canoes represent Colonialism. What have we done to ourselves?

    Pick the color phone you like and be happy that you have a choice!
