I've always had black but I wonder if the other colors won't show scratches as bad. Any ideas?
I think you're mistaking the iPhone 6 for the iPhone 27S.
What's that even supposed to mean?
OP: get silver.
will silver show less scratches?
I don't think scratching will an issue with iPhone 6(+), with any color. Remember, iPhone 5 used to scratch the most on the chamfered edges, and they aren't there anymore.
ok cool my 5 is pretty scratched up on edges. I'd prefer space gray.
Both the space gray and gold have been treated with their corresponding color, while the silver does not. If you scratch space gray/gold hard enough, you'll probably see the silver raw aluminum, as opposed to the silver masking it a bit.
Silver won't stop scratches, it'll just 'hide' them better.
The one you don't drop.
Also, iPhone 6's color (space gray) is noticeably lighter compared to the much darker slate of the iPhone 5, so it will show even less scratches overall.
I have a little theory about this. I think the reason the space gray is lighter this year is that it's not the coated aluminum of the iPhone 5 and 5s, which was practically painted, and caused easy scratching.
I think this year they have slightly tinted the aluminum, possibly by mixing some color into the metal itself. I'm hoping that will make it much harder to scratch. It's only a slight shade darker than the silver.
