Title. I want the jet black. That's all, I just wanted to express my thoughts.

Next year when price drops...

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.

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.

You're giving the thief way too much credit.

Thieves don't put that much thought behind it.
