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?

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.

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.

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.
