    Who got the gold iPhone 6 or Plus? I got the gold because I've had white and black iPhones in the past and wanted something different. A lot of people are like what the hell is wrong with you that phone is hideous? I think it looks nice.

    When the 5s came out I thought the gold one looked really tacky, but I think they tweaked the tone of the gold and it actually looks very nice now.

    Because I love Gold iPhones, I might change to SG when the 6S+ is released though.

    I got the gold 6 Plus. Previously owned the white 3GS and white 4S. The silver just looks a bit bland to me. The black and space gray looks really sleek, especially in the marketing materials, but I was concerned that scratches would look more obvious on it. I was concerned about the white antennas, but they're so far at the edge you don't really notice them. Not that it matters since I'm using the leather case now.

    History:

    OG iPhone

    3GS white

    4s White
    5 Black
    6+ GOLD BABY

    I think the iPhone 5/5s were the best looking black iPhones. The new Space grey really looks more silver. Don't see why people like it so much. My girlfriend originally was getting silver but went with Gold and she is happy. Btw, Gold + midnight blue leather apple case = perfection.

    Aren't there too many threads on this very subject? Why open a new one?

    I got an iPhone 6 with 128GB and in gold. I noticed that this one is different from the 5s gold. In certain lights or viewing angle, it almost looks a bit like rose gold.

    I got the iPhone 6 Plus 128 GB in Gold. For me I had either White or Black. Originally I wanted the Silver model, but they didn't have any silver in stock so I decided to get the Gold. I actually like the Gold color now instead of the silver.

    My situation exactly. I like my gold 6, and I could care less if others like or dislike it.

    I've got the 5s Gold. It's just the right shade for me. Haven't seen the 6 or 6+ in person but judging by YouTube videos, I think I'd get the silver if I was upgrading.

    I have the gold 64gig 6+ and I love it. As an avid teeter the size of the phone will take some getting used to. But that's worth having the larger screen. The white bands don't bother me at all because I have a case on it but if I didn't I actually like the way they look

    Overall I think the phone is terrific and I would not change it for a iPhone 6

    *raises hand*

    I got "stuck" with the 6+ 64gb Gold cause it was the last one AT&T had in-store last Friday...

    I have to admit, its starting to grow on me...

    I really do not like the gold this time. It looks like a cheap toy.
    This time i choose space and gray all the way. Chic and classic.

    128gb gold iPhone 6+.

    It's my first not black or grey iPhone. I wanted to get the gold 5S last year but no Apple or carrier stores had any in stock on launch day or while I was still within the return/exchange period so I went with the space grey model.

    I preordered this year, for the first time ever, specifically to get the gold model.

    I originally wanted the black/grey one but AT&T only had white/gold ones but I ended up loving it. I had a white/silver 5s and I really like the gold (although I hardly ever see it).

    I bought a gold iPhone 6 which I love. I have a hard shell clear case, the phone is beautiful and sleek looking.

    Got gold for two reasons:

    1. It was the first 6+ 128gb available when I ordered. Everything else was another week or so.
    2. It's eventually going to end up in Lifeproof case, no one will really be able to tell anyway.

    I wanted a gold 5s, but was stuck with a Space Gray at Launch Day.

    Pre-ordered a 128GB Gold 6+. I like the white front with the gold circle around the home button best. For now, I have a red leather Apple case on it.

    Funny, I like white on my iPhones, but the white border seems to distract me more when it's on an iPad.

    This is my favourite part of the gold iPhone too. But those white bands on the back are turning me off from the gold. I might go silver (the bands are less noticeable). I haven't decided yet.
