Jet Black is the sleekest color iPhone ever releases, even with the microabrasions. It’s the darkest, and most stealth looking phone, and it’s all aluminum unibody.

What was your favorite iPhone color and design?

Based on looks, I have to say the red iPhone 8/XR. They’re just bold looking, and the glass body enhances the color a lot.

The Only advantage to the jet black, was when it was new, it was very sleek and aesthetic, but Being that it damaged so easily beyond just microabrasions, it looked horrible.

Space grey 7 + is thebest looking iphone
There's isn't such a thing as a space gray 7.
They do a matte black just called "black", and used to do a jet black, so they had 2 versions.

I think the jet black was discontinued, since as Reletnless said...it scratched super easily.
Apple even warned to use a case with it.

Definitely think it looked stunning, shame it's not really doable with glass backed phones (I guess they could make just the edges in the same finish). I don't tend to like shiny finishes (don't prefer the shiny stainless steel on the X/S/Max) but JB was nice. I do think the SG on the iPhone 8 series looks better than the 6/S being darker though.

Based on looks, nothing beats the 6 / 6 Plus space grey, IMO. I have the 8 Plus space grey and would love its hardware in a 6 Plus body.

As long as they got rid of the horizontal antenna bands, I'd be down for this too!

The slate/gray iPhone 5 and the (matte) black iPhone 7/7 Plus were my favorite color iPhones by far. I think I liked the 5 more, if I had to choose.

I just wish the Xs/Max/Xr were true black and not cloudy gray. The Xr is darker than the Xs/Max, but it's still not 4/4S true black.

I got the jet black 7 when it came out but returned it because it just looked like a black blob. I got the regulyblack instead. I loved that one the most until I got the space grey X. To my eyes that one is sleekest looking.

I would like an iphone jet black back but a space grey(metallic look) metal sides. It would look really sleek.
