I don't know how it is in the US/UK but in France, almost everyone with flagship phone has at least a case or a screen protector and having both is frequent too
True if people were rational. But in real life, most people are influenced a lot by emotional things when purchasing a product. And Apple plays around it by giving exclusive colors/finishes or news one each year to increase purchases intentions.
You mean iPhone 4? iPhone 4 certainly looks nice, but I have never been fan of glass phones.
I wasn't joking. I've always liked the style and especially that color on the metal body. The antenna lines never bothered me, but I see how it could be an annoyance to some. I have a 6S Plus in silver and love it's sleek looks but always regretted that it wasn't space gray. It's still in use for a music collection. My 8 Plus in space gray, while nice in the direct sunlight, is too dark most of the time and may as well be black.Not sure if you are joking. But having a space gray 6s myself and coming from HTC One m7, I really tried to hide those ugly antenna lines. But I don't regret buying it, it is running better than ever (except ios 14 + covid-19 is draining battery). Transparancy of my cover has reduced with time, so it doesn't really matter anymore. But getting rid of those ugly lines, was the only thing I really envyed on iphone 7. And I still prefer metal over glas, so 7 is the sweetspot of the ip6 - 2020 SE design in my mind.
5s is still the best. Imagine a Jet Black 5s.
I must admit that I am deeply regretted that I opted for mat Black iPhone 7 4 years ago. However, I just got a like new iPhone 7 Jet Black 128GB from eBay.
I must say, Jet Black iPhone 7 is THE most beautiful iPhone ever designed by Apple. The front glass met the back cover so nicely. It is true uniform design.
I cannot stress enough how much I love this design. I think nothing comes close to Jet Black iPhone 7.
The iPhone 7 still performs beautifully with iOS 14. I am retiring my iPhone 11 due to mandatory mask law. I am using 2020 iPhone SE and the Jet Black iPhone 7 as my daily driver.
I love iPhone 7. Hopefully this phone will get support for next few years.
