    Saw this on another website... apparently in Bulgaria one of the carriers is running an incorrect photo promoting the new iPhone 6...

    AND I WANT THE BLACK ONE!

    Space gray is a terrible substitute for black

    They probably don't offer black because it shows scratches too much.

    Yes a real black iPhone would've been pretty nice.

    Yuck. I don't think so. I think white is classier. black shows finger prints and scratches easily. Most of the iPhone 5 I've seen look like death hit them.

    There are ways...

    ColorWare iPhone 6/6+ in jet black looks incredibly slick.

    Costs $299 [extra], a bit steep.

    I had the 5 in black and it looked fine. With the new phones having rounded edges they are less prone to anodization wearing off because the chamfered edges is what the main problem was for people. I don't know how white is classier than black, but that's your opinion.

    Man that looks so much better. It's possible to make a black finish that doesn't scratch easily

    Yeah that looks sick. Even if the space grey was a bit darker...I like the look of my grey 6 a lot, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't prefer a black phone.

    That looks great, but $299 is an insane price.

    I like the space gray. The phone needs a little contrast. I have a black leather case on mine and hate to cover the space gray.

    i totes agree, i love how the black would kinda rub off after a while, gave it a steam punk look.

    I believe they don't make black because it's actually harder to manufacture in black. It's not just a paint they put on.

    This black one would look more slick with a silver rimmed home button.

    Agreed all my previous iPhones were the black / slate ones and they all looked fantastic. Not crazy about the gray background ... Looks a lot like my iPad 3 back Which I'm not fond of

    That style of black on the 6 looks pretty awesome! Wish Apple had done something like that.
