    You bros need to spell check.

    Silver, BTW, but since you didn't list that as an option you want, space gray.

    Gold is the best imo. The gold is the same gold that is on the 6. Its more golder then the 5s . The space grey is lighter then the 5s space grey and looks horrible now.

    so they did change the space grey color.. will wait to see it in person..

    either space grey or i would go gold.. Although i believe that a black-front is better for consuming media and there is no black-border as perceived with white-front iPhone.

    Space Gray if you want black bezels, gold if you want white bezels.

    The rose gold looks amazing let's be honnest. But the white bezels are way too annoying... If you don't care about them, get the fresh new color that's pretty trendy this year.

    As long as you're not one of these tiring people saying pink is only for girls.. Lol

    Was the gold one updated though? Just more gold like the 6? If so, then I think it's a nice choice too ;).

    Oh no! :( Why did they mess with space grey? And why can't they make space black?

    My daughter and I are trying to figure out what colors we want, too. We had assumed they left it all the same as on the 5s. We like space gray on the 5S. Hate it on my 6 Plus. Both of us were leaning toward space grey. Do not want lighter space grey. ...End of pout.. ;);)

    If the rose was actually nearly red and not pink, I'd probably pick it.

    Until then, silver or black for the most neutral colour options.

    I don't have an SE yet but I'm posting a photo comparing the variance in tint or hue (not sure of the correct term) between my iPad mini 2, iPhone 6Plus and iPhone 5s. The iPhone 6 Plus has a very slight aqua or yellowish tint compared to the 5s that is a comparatively red shade. The space gray on the iPad mini 2 is more purely grey with no hints of aqua or reddish hue in person. Sorry I tried not casting a shadow while taking the pics but the light is from a skylight on an overcast day here.

    The reason I prefer the 5s shade to that of the 6Plus is that the slight Aqua tint reminds me of looking at something on a yellow tinted iPhone screen. It just looks a little sepia toned in comparison for my tastes. Others might prefer it.

    If the get a chance to see a space grey SE this weekend I'll snap a comparison to the 5s, assuming someone else here doesn't come up with a photo before I do.

    I dont like Gold/champagne because its toward chinese market which gold reflects somehow richness
    Which is ****ing wrong
    Rose is also a color created by marketing toward new market (maybe chinese girls?)
    I don't like space grey either, the combination of black/grey doesnt seem to match (for me)
    I choose silver/white because it reminds me the color of Macbook Air/Pro

    Silver/white

    I wanted space gray originally but silver is the most resistant to scruff and fingerprints. Plus, I like to see the ring around the home button which isn't seen on the black models. Besides, I don't really plan on using SE to watch videos on a "4 inch display, so white panels don't bother me. Reminds me of my iPod 5th gen days.

    The only place I've noticed any scratches or scuffs on my iPhone 5s (which I stopped carrying in a case the last few months I used it (my daughter keeps it in a case now) is little tiny nicks on the chamfered edges. The space grey held up really well, otherwise. It did show fingerprints, though. So if that bothers you, silver is a good choice.

    I've had the silver 5s for 1,5 years when I decided to get the 6s in silver. Now I'm getting th space grey se, because that's the most beautiful design for the iPhone 5s design.
    iPhone 5s/se -> spacegrey
    iPhone 6/s/+-> silver/white, also for the better looking antenna lines on the back of the phone

    These photos are of SE from Engadget.. to me Space grey SE wins !

    Its shade is lighter than 5s space grey which reminds me of black/silver ipad 3 retina 9.7 inch i had few years back:)

    Also, I couldnt like the white front on SE.. i tried hard:rolleyes:
