    I've been miring the gold iphones for a while now but I just didn't think I'd want another white phone (galaxy here). Does anything think the gold and white is girly?

    Oh lord. Why on earth would it be girly?

    It's just chic.

    I got gold for 5S but got bored of the white front quickly. Glad to be going back to a black front; it looks more seamless in my opinion.

    I had the gold 5s for a while and it's very nice. Think of it as a more premium version of the white/silver phone

    Man its not girly I lived my gold 5s and will enjoy my gold 6. If anyone is judging on a phone color they have to much time on their hands.

    I find the white phones to be feminine. (As I type this on a white iPad mini)

    I agree with this. I always get black for this reason. If you are reading an ebook or playing a game in the dark (or low light), it's distracting to see a big honking white border glowing around your screen.

    I don't think the gold is girly, I just think it's ugly. Not so much the gold color, but the white antenna stripes look terrible on it IMO. They don't look great on any of the phones, but to me they are less annoying on the space gray and silver.

    Better question... Are you so insecure with your masculinity and sexuality that you're afraid to look like less of a man for having a gold iPhone that might be seen by some as "girly"? Seriously dude you got bigger issues to worry about. Very insulting and crappy post.

    I don't mind the gold color so much as how the white looks on the front. The black on the front of the space gray looks quite sharp imo

    Yes I am actually. It's not the gold it's the white gold combo

    what i love about gold is the ring around the touchID, it's so sleek. in space grey phone, the ring is dark and not contrast.

    my dream phone would be a gold iphone 6 with black front glass. would be awesome.

    Had a black 3G, 4, and 5. I love black coloring for electronic devices. But I got tired of it and got the gold 5s. It's quite shiny and unique. So I decided to get the gold this time around again. To me it just feels more unique, it's got that ooh factor when it hits the light. You'll get the Smeagol my precious feeling. I might go black next time around, just to change it up. Silver I like but when I think on it it just feels flat, like a shiny dime to a shiny gold coin.

    I will never understand people who think white (and now gold) phones are girly.

    I personally don't really like the gold color, but I don't think the white is more feminine or the black more masculine. I personally like the look of the black/gray and white/silver more. Now, if the gold had a different colored bezel it may be different but I'm not a fan of white on gold.

    I'm getting a silver 6+ myself. It matches my MacBook and iPad, haha. Silver and white everything, I can dig it.

    Do yourself a favor and buy the black one. The white phone may look nice and flashy at first but it gets boring really fast. Also the white front makes the phone look bigger too. And the screen will look dimmer due to the white surrounding benzel

    No. When you got the black phone, you always think the white looks nicer, vice versa. Grass greener on the other side applies here
