I am giving my fiancée an iPhone X as a surprise gift. I have one of each color and memory coming in November 3rd. What is better for her as a gift? I want to surprise her so I’m not asking her what color would you prefer. She currently has an iPhone 7 in matte black, but she has a silver aluminum series 3 and silver MacBook Pro. She doesn’t really care I would say, but what would you gift to a special someone? Also as for size, I think 64GB is enough. Will 4K recoding use lots of storage and need the 256gb. Please help. Need to decide so I can choose which iPhone x I keep. She’s first and I’m last.

None. Get her an iPhone 8.
Not sure if trying to be funny or sarcastic here. I’m serious though. Curious on your inputs. Let’s please ignore the fact that it is expensive. I’m not rich by any means but it makes me happy spoiling her.

Silver looks like the more chic color imo. If she wasn't going to put the phone in the case, a lighter color always stands out more.

We don’t know her, her likes or her needs. My vote, SG 64GB because it’s what I ordered.

Also that you pre-ordered 4 iPhone Xs screams you have some money and are trying to show that, despite your subsequent comment. Call me wrong, but this comes across as a vanity post.

If I would give my girlfriend an iPhone X as a gift I went for the 64GB Silver. The glossiness of the Silver gives the white a layer of depth that makes it stand out from the plain Space Gray. Also it's looks for me more luxurious and chic!

Should I sell the extra for profit on eBay?


I’m totally kidding now, I saw that thread and people were unhappy about scalpers.

You are all just fun to chat with. We are all crazy Apple people. :p

Honestly I don't think color matters all that much. I mean she's going to put it in a case, right? But I'd go with the bigger size. Women take lots of pictures and tend not to remove them from their phone.

As a girl who likes gadgets and pretty things, I'd say Silver. The storage really depends on what you think she might use it for - does she have a large music collection, for instance.

My previous iPhone was Space Grey because I've never liked the white bezels. I always wished they would do the Rose Gold with black bezels. I was also VERY keen on the "Blush Gold" that was rumoured to be a X launch colour. Was quite disappointed actually when there was no sign of it on the keynote...

Whatever you choose will be massively appreciated I'm sure! My husband technically bought mine (his credit card lol).

I’d say the silver phone. Both colors are good but the silver could look really good in clear or colored opaque cases. I don’t know her style, but I ordered my spouse a silver one.
For storage, if she likes to store any media or shoot lots of slow mo or 4K video then 256, else 64 is fine.

That first sentance might be the dumbest thing I have ever read in my life, I feel sorry for anyone who knows you.
Wow you must be a joy to spend time with =/ It's true the silver pops more than the darker grey on this generation of phone. Lighter colors are more on trend at the moment in the fashion industry, in which I work, therefore it is more chic. I bid you adieu.

Both are nice. She’s lucky to have someone give her such an expensive gift. My vote is on the silver as well. Really though; both look awesome. I went space grey for my phone. If she puts a case over it at the end of the day doesn’t matter.

a) Nobody knows your girlfriend
b) if "she doesn't really care", then why make this thread in the first place?
c) if this is actually a serious thread and you feel that you'd be making her a great gift with an iPhone X, then —as someone has already pointed out— allow her to choose her iPhone X variant the moment you give her the gift.

So, you are admitting that you don't know the woman who you will spend the rest of you life with, well enough to know which phone she wants?

LOL, I kid. Easy - go with max memory so that's a non issue. As for color, give her the SG and say "I thought about silver, but I will save that for our 25th anniversary".

There ya go.
