    Anybody else thinking it's cooler than white-gold?

    I don't like this mockup, but I'm not even a big fan of 5S gold model.

    He probably hates it because it generally looks quite tacky IMO. I think white and gold compliment each other on an iPhone but not with black thrown into the equation. Just my view.

    Who said Jony Ive hates black and gold?

    Regardless, that mock up is repulsive.

    mock ups or artist renders like the above use "real gold" color that is tacky

    I speak about the usual "apple gold" that is more tasteful anyway

    Not something I'd carry around, looking like that anyway.

    Where did Jony say he hated it anyway?

    If you're getting a Rolex Submariner, you get the all stainless version. The two-tone black/gold and blue/gold, although more expensive, look awful. Gawdy, tacky and cheap looking! The same is true for an iPhone. Premium product or not, it looks horrible.

    People were saying the same for white gold, then when apple told them it was cool suddenly it was the best idea ever

    Onyx & gold has been a sign of wealth for thousands of years.

    Indeed. But wealth ≠ taste.

    I think the champagne gold and black looks fine, something I'd consider getting. The C3PO gold and black looks awful.

    Actually what happened is, the champagne/gold iPhone looked far better in real life than any of the pre-release renders

    Jonny must an Albion fan, must be the reason he hates the black and gold of the dingles.

    Should be a limited amount of people that understands this.
