It's been around two months since release and I'm wondering if the majority of you are happy with your choice of color now that you've lived with it for a while? Or would you choose differently if given the choice?

I did debate whether to get the gold or silver Xs Max and I settled for silver like my previous X. I do like the gold but I’m happy with the silver.

Wanted black but they only had gold, didn't want it but it's covered in a black OtterBox Defender anyway

Deciding between the Gold or Silver XS Max would be the hardest decision for me. I have a Space Gray X and I hate the color, so I know I will not choose Space Gray again when I upgrade. I love the Gold but I also like the Silver, especially the way they look in clear cases.

Another black iPhone was never in the card; and this, especially, after owning a Product Red XR for a few days.

Got the silver and am awaiting a skin from Dbrand.

I’m pretty content.

I have the gold and I experience the problem of desiring what color I don’t have. While the gold great I think the while looks great as well. So hard to say.

Like mentioned above I would want the xr colors.

Love the silver I chose, not that I see it much because I use an electric blue leather case I had for my x.

Kinda wish I went with White as black really shows dust, but I much prefer black. I put a Sena wallet case on it. Grass is always greener on the other side. I'm happy with what I have.

I chose the gold and really like it - although in my process of trying different cases it doesn't show much if at all. I figured, however, if it did end up in a case where the color showed I would have the one I preferred.

For me, the "cased" Xs Max is really not as big of a deal where the color is concerned - I was a MUCH bigger advocate of the space grey 8+ because it gives the illusion of the front facing borders top and bottom disappearing, even in a case. The case is otherwise the color of the phone with every Apple phone I've owned.

Went with Gold on my Xs.

I had been going with Space Grey/Black for every iteration of iPhone since the 3G.

The gold looks good and all but wish I would have stuck to the SG, as I've learned I prefer that color. Oh well, that's what next year is for.
