    gun metal appears to be a painted black matte, so my guess is it will wear off.


    white i say

    Everyone's just going to vote for the one they have :) I don't think this is a very fair poll :)

    @Benjic, the Gunmetal is available in some Apple stores (not online yet), though I don't recall seeing it in my Atlanta store last week.

    I don't think it is painted over black matte and it shows no sign of potential peeling. It is painted on and has a finishing coat over it.

    I have the white slider on my black iPhone. It looks great and feels great. I would like to get the gunmetal one. To bad they don't make a glossy black one.

    Both are nice. I will probably be picking up the gunmetal next.

    then check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsQFfKxv_x8

    that was his opinion.

    I think it could be prone to wear, depending on how well the finish is.

    He's the ****, but he was wrong. It isn't painted over a matte finish. It is painted over a gloss finish, similar to how the matte is painted. However unlike, the gun metal has an finishing coat.

    either way painted = wack

    I'm still looking for an answer is the "new slider" fits better. I just want to ease it on and leave it, forever.

    Cars come all one color (grayish). They are just painted to the consumers taste. How should be different from a $35 dollar case?

    I just think it would be a lot better to mold a simple case with a dyed plastic vs painted. I mean the case itself it not worth $35, be honest. We all will pay that but its a piece of plastic for god's sake. Probably more material on a .99 cent frisby then your case.

    Hell i'd still buy one because i like them but it is what it is.

    I like painted cars , and ladies faces but i'd rather vinyl siding on my house. thanks.

    I've got both the Black Matte finish and bought the Gunmetal yesterday to just add some flavor so I can switch them in and out. The Gunmetal is definitely on a gloss finish and does not provide the slight grip that the matte finish does. My matte still has yet to peel and I have had it since it was released. I haven't seen any signs of scratching either. I take it out about once a week and do a full clean with the iKlear and then put the case back on.

    Extra vanilla

    I would have to go with the gloss white, that was my choice when I was in the apple store and best buy
