    So which colour of iPhone 6/6+ did you get and why? I got the black/space grey but am thinking of selling it to get the white/silver. I can't exchange cause the Apple Stores are out of stock. Did anyone return their colour to get a different colour?

    I got the white/silver. I was going to get the gold but when I first saw it at the Apple Store it was too bright and shocking. I think it had to do with how it was displayed as later when I actually held the gold the next time I went in it looked actually quite nice.

    Didn't want the black/space grey as it is more manly IMO and am kinda tired of looking at the same black front since 2007. But they are beautiful and that's the color my husband will be getting.

    Apple should introduce black front with silver back. That would be mt choice. Since its not an option, I went with space gray.

    Got the silver because it's the prettiest imo. I have a golden 5S but the 6 doesn't look as good in gold. The white lines look terrible.

    I wish the space grey was as dark as it was on the 5S. It looks closer to silver to me.

    I'm also tired of looking at black front. My 3G and 4S were both black. I wanted white/silver but I can't find that one in stock at the two Apple Stores here for me to reserve. Right now the only way for me to get it is to buy outright on the Apple Store and then sell mine for hopefully close to the same price.

    I also noticed you are a fellow Canadian. :)

    Space grey is more dark silver to me, compared to previous models.

    Only girly men and girls get white iPhones :D ;) Jk. I've always been a fan of the black front iPhone, and honestly the Space Gray color (the back piece and sides) looks soooooooo good. Its gonna match a couple of my nice suits perfectly while still looking much more professional than a gold and white iPhone in a guys hands. Sounds silly but yeah. I'm still shocked Space Gray is the most popular choice....the gold iPhones seam to be super easy to get around here in Central NY State, AT&T, and Verizon all said they could ship the phone right away if I ordered Gold...

    This! I like it though, It'll look sharp next to my rMacBook Pro

    I went away from white for the 6+ as the Black look looks slightly smaller somehow.

    Didn't choose gold. Got it by default as it was only ATT 6+ 64GB available on Apple Store App preorder at 3:00 AM. But it has grown on me. I actually like all three color choices this year and would have been happy with any of the three.

    Space Gray is so light that it's essentially silver. It's nothing like the iPad's Space Gray nor as dark as the renders on Apple.com make it out to be. I wish they made it darker like on the iPad.

    gold looks different in different lights also if its lying on something like a bed etc, many times it looks silver. Its the chameleon of iPhone models

    I've always had black iPhones, but I think I'm going with the Silver/White this time. Time for a change, and it looks great from what I've seen in the store.

    Space grey. When the screen is off, I like the bezel to blend with the screen.

    I agree! Was just joking.

    I have always had black/grey. My Sedio Surface case hides all but the screen anyway. I do prefer the black bezels over white.

    haha. Of course.

    I wish they had the same options as the iPhone 5 to be honest, the Slate black with black bezel was pretty much perfect.
