There are some threads discussing the pros and cons but I am torn between the two. I don't want gold as its a bit much for me. I have had a black 4 and white 4s. Black 5s. I think the space grey looks awesome but hate smudges. Anyone struggle as well or any suggestions?

I went from iPhone 5 in silver to iPhone 6 in space gray. I like both but wanted a change and the space gray looks great. I am noticing less fingerprints on the black face than on the white one but maybe that is because it is new with no wear to the oleophobic coating yet. I prefer the lack of a ring on the space gray touch ID button. I think it looks classy and sleek as all one color. I have a black leather case on it as well.

I read this somewhere online, so I cannot confirm its accuracy, but supposedly the silver metal finish is slightly more resistant to scratching than the space gray finish because of the specific coating they use in the silver finish.

Again, might be total bull, but it could be worth researching if that's something that might be important to you.

White silver for two reasons....no smudges on face and silver ring around home button looks elegant.

I had a black 4, 5 and 5s, but decided I was ready for a change, so I got a silver 6. That said, I think the space gray looks great too, so either would be great.

I do agree that I don't really care for the gold one either.

All of my phones and iPads have been black. I decided to go with the white/silver this time and I am really happy with the change.

Silver looks great and as above Touch ID button looks cool

I like the space grey....the whole front is black. It's beautiful. But switched
from black to white a while back because all the smudges shown so much.

Total bull. This isn't black slate like the 5

Forget about smudges, do you like a seamless finish like the black front with no camera or speaker holes showing at the top?

I was on the same situation today but decided to keep my black/space grey plus

Same here, black 5, space grey 5s and now silver 6. I don't regret the Silver one bit, the understated silver ring on the Touch ID sets off the front while the black front is just a little boring in comparison.

Having said that, you can't really go wrong with either colour.

While a prefer the black face I wish the Space Gray model had the silver ring around the home button.

The rings look good on the whites. But I think it was left off the blacks to keep it seamless.

I think the 6 series looks best in space gray. Just like iphone 5 is silver and 5s is gold.

Actually I take that back... It is the 6 series, the sedan version. It's called 6 grand coupe

I normally go white/silver, but went Space Grey this year. My reason? The lines seem to be less noticeable on the Space Grey model. I feel bad for those that went gold.. yuck. Those white lines. Eek.

I've gone black/gray for every iPhone since the 4. This time for the 6 I went with white/silver and love it, more than I thought I would. Changed my wallpaper from typical dark to the white mountain background + Apple black leather case = awesome.
