    I just have this feeling that pictures won’t do it justice. Currently standing in line at UPS waiting to pick mines up..

    I picked one up in store this morning. Didn't think I would end up liking the color as much as I do.

    Pictures absolutely don’t do it justice. It’s like it changes colour depending on the light.

    I have to admit. I had two reserved: SG Max and Gold Max. Once I saw the fingerprints all over the SG that sold me on the gold. Plus, it's a really sweet color. A lot better than that crappy rose gold.

    It depends on the lighting it's in, but it's way less gold in person than the pictures make it seem.

    I love it too but it’s quite heavy. Been using it for an hour now and almost dropped my Plus when I picked it up cuz the Plus suddenly felt so light :D

    Is the weight difference just a couple grams (or the weight of a penny). I would have thought you wouldn't be able to notice it.

    Looks kinda ugly to me. Glad I got the black one as always.

    It’s much deeper in person. I absolutely love it.

    IMO the gold isn't as classy, timeless and sexy as SG and will never be. All these unboxing and videos of people with their gold iPhones makes me happier that I got the SG. Seems like the reason that most people got gold was because it was the new color and wanted to show off. I don't like the contrast between the gorgeous black screen next to the shiny gold band trim. Looks awful.

    Is the Space Gray darker than on the X?
    I like SG but the back on the X was too grey for me..

    IMO the gold is gaudy and tacky. The glass is bad enough, but the band is awful. Honestly it reminds me of being a kid growing up in a house of smokers with nicotine stained ceilings.

    I’m stoked for my new phone, but I used to take my case off and stare at the 8 gold from time to time. It was perfect.

    So because you don’t like it, everyone else ordered it to show off???????????????

    Pictures I've seen previously look more gold while release day photos look more off yellow. Strange...
