I've been wondering which color is the most popular when choosing an iPhone.

For me it went:

3G- black
4- white
5- black/slate
5s- space gray
6- space gray
6s plus- space gray

I prefer how the screen blends in with the bezel on the black/space gray iPhones.

3G/3Gs - Black
4 - Black
4s - White
5 - Black/Slate
5s - White/Silver
6 - White/Silver
6s Plus - White/Silver
6s - White/Silver
SE - White/Silver

Would far prefer a black front, but I HATE space grey...in all variants. If they offered an iPhone in Silver or Black with a black front that would be my default choice.

Rose gold when Apple offers it.
Silver when they don't.
Black when either were not available.

I've owned a black iPhone 4, slate iPhone 5, gold iPhone 5s, and temporarily used a white iPhone 5 before giving it away to my cousin because the battery life became crap. I also owned a white iPod 5th gen and white Nintendo DS lite where the latter's matte shoulder buttons got dirty easily.

Since I am a guy and tried all different colors on phones including a navy blue Sanyo SCP-5500, glacial silver HTC One M7, dark gray Nexus One, and gold LG G3 Beat. I prefer black front panels on an iPhone. So space gray. Just go ask Sarah Palin when her hubby isn't around, once you go black...

Rose gold and champagne gold are horrible color options for guys but get what you like. Apple is still years behind Nokia's customizable backs from the early 2000's and Moto Maker from 2013.

Space gray or silver are the only choices for me. Apple should give us more iPhone color options beyond the hideous colors of the 5c and more like the 4th gen iPod nano..

^ One of the rare times a gadget in orange looked really cool to me.

3GS: Black
4: White (yeah, I waited for it)
5: White
6S: Space grey (because the white bands look ugly on the other colors. Would've gotten gold)

I really wish for a nano chromatic iPhone. The color combinations on iProducts are kinda boring nowadays, especially since every Android OEMs now copied the same color scheme. Metallic green, or blue would be sweet, but I can see Tim Cook as a boring man that prefer streamlined and simplified supply chain.

Whatever they offering with black front bezel, anyways the rest of the phone is covered 95% of the time with case...

3GS - black

6 - wanted black but at last minute thought white was nicer then regretted it after buying

Think my next phone will probably be a 6S Plus and I'm definitely going space grey

I prefer the clean look with white and silver now, like with my iPad Pro and my MB Air. Silver and white means Apple to me actually.

I always buy the space grey color now - I had a iPhone 5 slate and iPhone 5s gold

I am very excited about the new space grey rumor- Now that we have an additional rumor of 3 models - I could see the new space grey being an exclusive to the higher end model.

I grew to hate the white front on the gold iPhone 5s
