    Whether it be considered Rose Gold, Pink or Salmon, I actually like the color and can't wait when I upgrade to the iPhone 7 with this rose gold color. Are any of you guys giving it a second thought?

    Can we all stop calling it pink? It's so undermining to those who just like the color. It's called rose gold for a reason. Do I call someone gay because they look it, even if they are not? No, cause that's not what they are or want to be called.

    On topic: I ordered it and after all the reviews I'm really happy with it! It's more coppery than I thought which is a plus :)

    I decided today that if the att store im going to on Friday has a 64 or 128 plus in rose gold, I'm gonna get it. I was unsure but I want it now. If I can't get it in store Friday I'll settle for gold 128 only.

    I ordered one with hope it would be copper, though it's clearly pink . So be it.

    My insecurity senses are tingling.

    Seriously, if you have to reaffirm masculinity based off the color of an iPhone, it's time to reevaluate.

    If I was into the color, I'd buy it. But I never even warmed up to the Gold (which also had quite the feminine rep at first). I say, buy what you want, bros. It's your phone at the end of the day. It's 2015, colors shouldn't be gender specific.

    I personally have zero interest in it, but if I saw a dude rocking it I wouldn't be bothered at all nor would I have any judgement. If you like the color then that's great, if not no worries.

    I'll be buying the Space Gray model, but from now on whenever I'll see a girl with a Rose Gold iPhone 6s, I'm gonna be turned on. :D

    Nope. If it actually looked like rose gold and had a black front, I probably would have.

    No, because I don't like the white antenna lines. Same reason as why I won't get gold.

    We're more annoyed by Apple's color blindness and/or misleading advertising. It's all rose and no gold. Rose gold should have been warmer or more coppery.

    Let's admit it: most folks who get the rose gold phone are those who want bragging rights of having the latest iphone ("don't you dare mistake it for 2014's models!"). The novelty factor. That is all.

    My wish for the iPhone 7:

    1) Get rid of the antenna lines on the back.
    2) BLUE phone, with a dark front plate.
    3) A refresh of the rose gold color, to make it truer to rose gold.
    4) No camera bump.
    5) Lighter in weight than the 6S/Plus (no 5.5" phablet should be almost 200g naked).

    I am devastated that you will all be judging me for the color of my phone. DEVASTATED I SAY.

    I guess now's not the best time to mention that I will ALSO be using the turquoise silicone case.

    (I do agree that I would have preferred a black bezel)

    -raises hand-

    I'm super excited. I've seen the rose gold Apple Watch and I love the color. My sister gets my black iPhone 6.. heh.

    Dude. I played around with the cases on the website and that turquoise one really caught my eye. If I like it enough when I see it in person I just might have to grab it.

    It looks awesome in person I very nearly grabbed it on my last trip to the Apple Store but ended up walking out with a saddle brown leather case instead. I may eventually get the turquoise also though.

    I'll never get a pink iPhone.

    This. Then try to justify it by saying "I'm a straight guy and have no problem with my masculinity" blah blah blah.

    Can't wait to get mine (it's on order with likely delivery in November). I will be happy to have the Rose Gold.
