    I have a Gold 128gb 4.7 inch iPhone 7, and I really regret not getting the Matte Black. Should I just deal with it until the iPhone 8, or buy the Matte Black? If I do buy a new phone, I'll probably buy the Plus... What do you guys think of the Gold color?

    Get over it, it's only a color.
    Mine is covered by a case anyway so even if it was pink I wouldn't be able to see it.

    Is this really a question that someone else can answer for you?

    If you want to know what I would do, well, firstly I would make sure that I buy a colour that I like. If I did come to dislike it later (which is unlikely) I would live with it. I can't justify spending several hundred dollars on the same phone I already have, just in a different colour. I'd just put a case of a preferred colour on it.

    Don't get the matte black until you need a new phone like the 8 or w.e.

    I agree, gold is very tacky.

    Easy to say if you're comparing gold to silver or rose gold or red, but when it comes to black there's also the front bezel to consider.

    Put a case and a black screen protector over it then get the 8 when it comes out. I just wouldn't lose a bunch of money over a color. Especially when it's only like 4 months away til the 8 comes out. But yeah I hate the white front to lol.

    Bead blast it and paint it with nail varnish, then there's NO going back, and you'll be forced to live with it and grow to like it.

    I'm sure there are lots of folks who would want a gold iPhone 7. Sell it and then use the money to buy a matte black phone.

    send it to colorware and have it changed to whatever color you like for like $200.

    What would you buy a color you didn't like, and then ask strangers what they would do?

    That's what I would do. Sell it, turn around and purchase the one I want and pay the difference.

    Yeah... but I'm in a two year contract with Verizon, and I wouldn't have enough to pay it off from selling it.

    I think it's one of the things you just live and learn with. Remember, it's just a color and you can certainly upgrade in the future. But I do like the Matte black.
