    How many of you would go to the gold iPhone if they made a gold iPhone with the black front? I have always had a white iPhone and iPad, until i got my 6+. I changed over to the black and space grey, and love it, but I do love the gold back of the gold version. However, I think it would look even better with a black front kind of like on the new macbook retina. I love that color combination. Do you think Apple would ever make a version like that?

    I probably wouldn't - the grey antenna lines wouldn't look good with gold.

    Now a 5s with black front & gold back, sign me up.

    I wouldn't get one, but they'd probably look great. To echo the above poster's point though, they'd have to make the antenna lines black, rather than grey; surely they can make those any color.

    I'd stick with Space Grey.

    What they *need* to make is an iPhone with the 6's dimensions but the 4's styling; just a larger, thinner 4. That I could really get excited about.

    I probably would just stick with the space grey design as I use a case and can't see the back but prefer the black faceplate. However it would be nice for those who are interested in it.

    I am only a Space Gray owner because that's the closest to black Apple now offers. I hate Space Gray but I hate silver and gold more and I have no interest in a white front.

    If Apple offered Black with a black front I'd do it in a hearbeat. Unfortunately the iPhone 5 is the last iPhone that came in black.

    Sucks.

    Black with black or black and silver. Not black with gold for me

    No I wouldn't. My wife has a 6+ in Gold and I think it looks tacky.

    No gold.

    I haven't been following rumors lately, what's the word on the space black color?

    I think that black and gold would be a better combination than white and gold, but still not really my cup of tea.

    Would not get a gold iPhone no matter what color the front is, just not my cup of tea.

    The iPhone 6s will probably come in the darker shade of Space Gray, just like the iPod touch 6th generation. I think it looks much better.

    I will probably go with Silver with White front this time. Always had the black ones since 3G.

    I might have, but since I use a case that covers the back, it wouldn't really make a difference.

    Space Grey on the 6s will be the same as the Apple Watch. More of a Charcoal, IMO. Gonna look nice. ;)

    I wouldn't go for it, I'm not really a fan of gold colored products.

    Yes, I'd go for it in a heartbeat. Black on gold = money.

    I too, hate space gray -- it's so depressing.
    The problem with the white front is that it really only looks good in sunlight, but then it's absolutely GORGEOUS!
    However, under fluorescent lighting (as in the Apple store, or in the subway) it takes on a a dull, milky hue that's quite unappealing.
