    it’s funny so I don’t have a case on my XR and my colleague saw it. It’s the red XR model. She was gushing over it and telling another employee about it lol. ”he has a red phone it’s so nice.” I have never seen anyone react to an iPhone before that. Anyone else have such experience.

    Yeah back in 2007 when I was the only one at my work who had the original iPhone. “OMG IT’S THE 8 GB MODEL TOO!”

    I work in tech and virtually almost everyone has got an iPhone around me with a few exceptions who own Android devices. Nobody has ever reacted like that to a new phone. When the X came out, some people just wanted to take a look first hand so that they can decide if they wanted to order for themselves.

    If you work in the tech sector, then obviously no one is really going to be that ecstatic about seeing the new iPhone, especially if they’re paying close attention to Apple and other products. Also, if you re-read the OP’s post, the color red seems to be the main highlight they really infatuated with versus just the iPhone itself. Maybe you missed that point.

    own the red XR too, its no case, during day one TWO ladies at work who own iphone 6 were excited when they saw mine, they use my phone to take selfies now. ysterday i was at the mall buying a jean at ZARA and the cashier asked which iphone is that, looking at my hand.

    the RED is 100% what draws people to look at my phone. i have never seein anyone with a RED iphone at work or at school (university) afew at the mall.

    When I had the first iPhone, shortly after launch I traveled to Canada, and some of the airport staff gathered around to gawk at it when I placed it in the bins to clear security. I got lots of questions.

    That’s how I feel about my kid’s coral XR. I just want to hold it and look at it!

    I love the coral. I wish it was available on swappa at the time.

    My only gripe is that the alumni looks pink on certain light

    It does but my 12 year old boy rocks it an Junior High! He is being bullied but has never had a negative comment about the color of the phone. He said the kids think it is cool. Surprised me!

    Ya the white looks nice. It’s a pure white. IT just seemed to me anyways, not using a case, the lighter colors make the bezel appear bigger. With a case it doesn’t matter of course.
