    I don't, not with the small print warning on Apple.com that it's probably going to scratch up pretty bad.

    I'm getting jet black, despite the scratches, I'm sure it'll be fine.

    I got a gloss black car because it looked the best on the lot.

    After real life use? Much regret now.

    Agreed. I was going to get the jet black but now I gave it a second thought and decided to get the matte version.

    Something to consider:

    The jet black is only available in the 128GB and 256GB versions, so having a jet black one is basically advertising to all would be thieves that it's an expensive model and worth stealing.

    If you buy a different colour 256GB model, it could be 32GB for all the thieves know, so it's less likely to get stolen.

    Just a thought.

    Was going to buy a black car because it looked slick. They only had silver and I'm happy I didn't get black.

    I have a feeling that the jet black may look like a 5C in person. Guess we'll wait and see. I'm ordering matte black.

    Not just that, the dang swirl marks you notice after each wash. It's enough to make a guy cry.

    Just like owning a black vehicle and keeping it swirl free, it's a commitment.

    Except when they get home and realize that they just stole a shiny glossy brick

    ITs not like they can do much with a stolen iPhone nowadays besides part it out.

    Yeah this is how I'm justifying the jet black, but haven't seen any skins advertised yet.

    You're giving the thief way too much credit.

    Thieves don't put that much thought behind it.
