    Is anyone else blown away by how good the Matte Black 7 looks in person?

    Like, the antenna bands, the thing that everyone complained about on the 6 and 6s, are practically invisible. I only notice them when I specifically go looking for them.

    I'll probably end up ordering a nice old silicone case just for a little protection, but this is the first iPhone since the slate iPhone 5 that I actually want to go caseless.

    What are your impressions of the matte black 7? I can only imagine that the jet black looks even better (when it's not covered in scratches!)

    I'm getting some hair colouring product and invisible gel. Going to go matte black myself.

    Looks very good and classy. And since the glossy effect looks cheap to me, this is the perfect "color" for me.

    I love how dark it actually is in person. Super stealthy.

    I would take some but I don't have my DSLR up here at school and I already turned my 6s in :(

    I can just tell you that it looks much better than Apple's 3D renders. I'll add in a photo I took with photo booth but obviously that's not going to be very high quality.

    Other than direct sunlight or if you're specifically trying to find the antenna bands, the back looks completely metallic.
