    Just got my Space Gray and given how subtle gold is, I was thinking how nice it'd look in black and gold. This combination would actually be less loud than white and gold. I think the only reason it's white and gold is Ive prefers white iPhone and Apple likes to limit color choices.

    White is just not my style and I can't bring myself to get a white iPhone.

    I'd be interested to see what such a combination would like like. Maybe someone will buy a space grey and a gold 5s, tear them down, and create one. I'm not risking that though!

    There are some pics of a black and gold iPhone. Back when all the leaks were happening they took a gold casing and put the black inserts in it it looked better than the white IMO.

    The back is a unibody so it'd be black face but white and gold back, which would look weird.

    Not for me, although gold and black can definitely be a good color combination, but in that case I would prefer a more shiny gold. Anyway, not for me. I prefer silver/white, silver/black, gold/white.

    I wouldn't touch a black and gold anything.
    My living room does not feature a porcelain panther table.

    I would consider it for sure. I have a space gray now bc I much prefer the black front over the white front. I find the white front distracting and like how the black front "hides" the ambient sensor as well.

    You'd have a point if gold were shiny, but black and gold would actually look less loud than white and gold. The gold is actually pretty subtle and black is naturally less loud than white.

    I hear black and gold and I just get this image of rent to own furniture.
    Even if it is "champagne" that just looks cheap and low class to me.
    Some will say you can't argue with sales.
    I'd say you can never underestimate the bad taste of people.

    Nope. :eek: It's such a soft gold that I think it would not look good at all.

    But, what ever floats your boat. ;)

    But iPhone's Gold isn't gaudy at all. It looking silver under some lighting conditions is what makes it work with black.

    ----------

    The gold on that is a bit over the top though. iPhone's gold is more subtle.

    Probably because it's actual gold plate, not just a gold coloured metal.

    100% - I thought this last week.

    And more musculine than Gold/White.

    Who has the powers to mock one up?

    Looks nice. Especially if the white glass in the back was black.

    I would have bought a black/gold for me and a white/gold for my wife.
