I bought midnight green because of the hype, but now I regret it. Should've gotten the black one.

But it's all right, still a very cool phone indeed. Unique too.

Wanted Midnight Green but played it safe with Silver just in case it got back ordered or something. If I had Space Grey I’d offer to trade. 😄

Silvers a good choice.

I would say my favorite colors for iPhone 11 Pro Max are:

Black
White
Midnight
Gold

I've had gold in the past, black, and also white as well, and now MG.

White is always nice IMO. Normally Gold is my favorite, but this time around with the frosted look, it's just not as appealing as previous models. MG is the most "fashionable." The latest craze, so that's why I got it. And black is standard. Black is definitely the go-to color if you want to play it safe. It's like buying a white car or something lol as opposed to maybe buying a bright red car.

Funny, I'm a little in the opposite position here. I got the Space Grey to play safe, but now, the more I see Midnight Green in real life and online videos, the more I seem to like it (and wish I instead got). Both of the colours have their ups. MG is like Space Grey, but has a little bit of green colour in it thats not overtly bright or standing out - which I like.

I also really love how the Midnight Green takes on a different look depending on the lighting situation, or how other people have comparatively said its like having two colours in one. And it still looks very elegant and professional.

Space Grey meanwhile has always been a 'classic' colour you can't go wrong with, and appears to have been updated to match the iPad Pro/MacBook shade of Space Grey which I really like - so you can 'match' the colours across your devices, unlike Midnight Green. I quite like that my iPhone Pro, MacBook Pro and soon to be delivered iPad Pro are the same (SG) colour, but thats me.

So yeah, both of these two colours I'm quite fond of. I mean if we were back in September and I had to choose all over again, it would be tricky...prob Midnight Green!

I won't be upgrading to the next generation iPhone that lands in September or whenever, but I do hope the Midnight Green sticks around for long term and isn't another Jet Black :)

I got the SG 11 Pro originally but really was digging the MG so I sold my SG to get the MG. Best decision IMO.

Interesting. I thought I bought space grey (at least that is what I told the sales guy.) When I went to grab a case, I picked the dark green one because I wanted a little color. Couple of days later, after having read some comments about the MG phone and looking at images of it I wished I had gotten the MG phone. When I looked at the box my phone came in, it said MG! LOL!

I didn't pay attention to the phone when I put the case on (poor light) and never realized I had gotten the MG one. So, I am enjoying my MG iPhone 11 Pro.

Midnight Green - although it is too similar to the Space Grey. The camera cutout is a better shade of green than the rest of the back of the phone. I'm still glad I bought the Midnight Green though, finally they offer a different color on the "pro" version of the iPhone. I have the forest green leather case and the black smart battery case, and the midnight green camera cutout looks great with both. Looking forward to a blue option for the iPhone 12 Pro, according to the rumors.

I really wanted the midnight green when they first came out, but it doesn't seem to go with very much. It looks weird with most of the case colors besides green. So now when I actually got around to buying one I became torn between space gray and silver. I've never been much a fan of gold, but they're all good colors really. I've been playing with a space gray and it's very nice, but I have a silver coming. It looks like silver is the least common based on sales, so why not be different. :)

MNG. After a few days I started to regret it, but after 5 months I am so happy I did as the more I look at that colour the more I love this shade of green.

Got Midnight Green, wanted Space Grey, but Midnight Green is all they had due to limited stock because of the pandemic.

The green has grown on me, love how it looks especially with sunlight on it, absolutely stunning, never been big on the color green lol, but I’m liking it on my 11 Pro Max.
