    I guess this is common sense, but I didn't know what to expect since not many reviews show the Space grey version. I wanted a black screen so this was the only choice.

    Hope this helps anyone who's thinking about getting this color option.

    I love my 8 plus space grey, it looks damn fine to me.

    Looking at your dongle plugged in just made me realise how stupid and inconvenient it is that you need to use one for any headphones with the 3.5mm stereo jacks on them. I'm glad I have bluetooth headphones now!

    Yea the dongle is real annoying!! My earphones are custom IEMs I saved up a long time for and bought in 2010.. they cost more than the iPhone, so it's a dongle life for me... (I could probably replace the wires with a bluetooth version but don't wanna spend money right now.)

    Exactly why I couldn’t swallow Apple’s decision of getting rid off the headphone jack even today.

    Nice picture. The new space gray color and glass backing gives its a different appeal and overall look. It's Very different from the 7000 series aluminum we have been used to seeing, but I like the glass back look much better.

    My camera was sent in for repair, so I only have phone photos right now.
    Just took the photos below in my office.

    Anyone else think the 8 woulda have been cooler with a stainless steel edge? Kind of like how the original mockups looked from a few weeks back

    Nice. I prefer that matt finish to the X model's blingy metal band. But alas, if I do get the X, I'll have a case to cover it up anyway.

    Enjoy.

    Heh. I guess that's a no from me bud. :D

    That polished stainless edge is pretty but not practical. Like Jet Black last year.

    Anodized aluminum makes a lot more sense.

    I really wish there was a no glass version and it was matte grey/black.

    If they did like a frosted matte glass instead of this glossy fingerprint stuff like the Xperia Z5. Which looked great with a grey frosted glass

    I'm curious how durable the frame around the device is over the silver model.

    I just compared the 8 to the jet black 7. The overall visual appearance is similar, but the 8 is a very, very dark grey vs. the deep black of the 7. I like both.

    I'm glad they didn't go with a pale watered down grey ala the new gold. This is one of the best current colors on any phone.

    Love that. Basically just looks like a slightly lighter jet black. I ordered gold because I have a black iPhone 7 already that I'm going to keep...but if I didn't, I'd be getting space gray.

    I like the sandwich look of it. Going X this year though.
