The Jet Black is GORGEOUS (although I have the Matte Black). I am curious if the JB is worth the micro abrasions that it is inevitable to get? Does anyone regret getting it due to this issue?
It's the finish. And it doesn't feel slippery!! Finally!!Like the guy above, I used to be obsessive (which was to an unhealthy point) about my iPhones. There is nothing wrong with babying your device or treating things you pay for with some respect, which I do of course, but I'm not constantly adding stress to my life by worrying about something like fingerprints or micro abrasions.
With that said, yes, the Jet Black is totally worth it. I had tried out the black while I waited for the Jet Black to arrive, and I knew I wouldn't be happy with it. When the Jet Black arrived, I was so happy with the color, it's beautiful. Plus it just feels different, I can't explain it exactly, but the finish (and the buttons) feels so much better than the regular aluminum, in my opinion.
Yes they do. Several guys at work have Jet Black. It's truly gorgeous when new.The micro scratches would add character.
Excellent point(s). The Jet Black is grippier than aluminum models and your correct, the micro abrasions add character. If you can live them, then more power to you.I think so. I'm returning my silver 7 for a JB. It feels so much less slippery in hand. I wouldn't use a case either. The micro scratches would add character.
Man Jony is full of itThis is all you need to know about the jet black.
What makes iPhone 7 jet black special is it's ability to carve onto itself the user experience...thanks to our 9 step ionization process we were able to create a surface that can tell a story about its user. These beautiful marks tell their story as you shine a beam of concentrated light onto the phone, revealing A glistening array of history and experience .... creating a sense of meloncholly and at the same time a sense of beauty reflective of the user experience. As your life and iPhone 7 jet black share a unique experience...unique to only you... iPhone 7 jet black doesn't just stay the same but instead melds beautifully into a character that is reflective of its user...creating a user experience that only iPhone 7 jet black can deliver.
The iphone 7 jet black transcends what one may call a robust user experience...its not just the experience of having an iphone but much much more for the user, its the very representation of what it means to develop an everlasting and visually charged experience. We needed a way for our users to tell a very intimate and personal story about their phone and we were able to find a new method of ionization which lead to a breakthrough in ionization technology leading to the back plate of iphone 7 jet black. By ionizing iphone 7 with not one but 9 continues steps of ionization process, each ionization process working to create a shine so sharp and so bright looking and something that cannot be fully experienced by just a video or picture. To truly feel and look at the new back of iphone 7 jet black is something that just cannot be replicated by any other phones in the market. The ionized back of iphone 7 jet black creates something we call "micro abrasions". This new breakthrough technology goes beyond the hardware and software integration and goes to the heart of why we use our phones, it creates a sense of user-phone integration... with the use of "micro abrasions" iphone 7 can meld itself to its user and with it create a phone that is unique to each user personality, history and most importantly leaves a mark that is so intimate that it creates a bond that can never be broken between user and phone.
Now we will do a demo. In this demo we will show you the breakthrough of micro abrasions and how it can shape the very essence of what we call an iphone user fully integrated experience.
Coming from a SE this was a huge upgrade for me (though I'd had the 6 Plus in the past), but yes, it feels like a far different phone from the 6s, particularly because of the Jet Black finish. (I "jumped" to the SE from the 6s Rose Gold, then from the SE to the 7 Plus)The other note is that the jet black feels like a genuinely different phone than the 6 series. People keep asking what phone I have....which is a compliment to the idea that the design is actually new enough.
The black 3G/3GS full of much of the same fine micro-abrasions which are only visible when you angle it toward a light source still sold for $450ish unlocked after one year.What should be considered perhaps is the resale value. I'd say most people here will update to the iPhone 8 next year and will be selling their 7 Plus - a completely scratched up JB will yield considerable less than other models.
