    Truth! I love Apple industrial design and I love Star Wars worn tech, so it works for me. I mean, I hate to see a scratch but ultimately it makes the product look loved and used.

    If you can't live like that, get a case!

    (I do use battery cases when traveling!)
    But do you use screen protectors

    I saw in one of the videos that there is a grayish mercury blob like the 3 color choices that are currently on the 7plus... does your unit have that one?
    Those are supposed to be gems. But they look more like blobs to me too.

    Color is totally subjective. If I was looking for an iPhone 7 now, I'd get red because it looks great and is hot and new.
    I agree on preferences being subjective. I don't care for the white front on any Apple products but I will say that a gold back and white front look much better than a black front.

    The same goes for red, for me. I think the white front with the thin red outline looks very apple and therefore Apple. I really like it. Given that Apple charges $100 to double RAM flash storage, the product Red color and subsequent donation (on Apple's part) are a great deal!

    I am really, really tempted!

    Well, the 7 Plus has 3GB. 7 has 2GB as well as the 6s and 6s Plus

    Yeah, it's like the matte black but just a tiny bit more satin-like to my touch. Maybe candy red? Like a Ferarri or Corvette? Apple loves cars
    That satiny finish comes across in all the pics I've seen and I like that! And candy red was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the Red phone.

    Yeah, I misspoke. Sosumi. Obviously I was referring to flash storage.

    Good advice. I carried my first three phones caseless, no worries, no damage. But I did use clear shields front and back. The phones were very slick without them (on the back, anyway).

    After my flat-sided 4s and 5s, the form factor changed and were even more slippery for me. Once I upgrade from my 5s, there will be some kind of clear case in my future.

    Is it truly a vivid red or is it more glossy?

    I understand that the price is the same, the same OS version and the same internal apps.

    Because it should a color not very common, how do you feel it will resist scratches and marks? is this a fingerprint magnet or not?


    Does it version has the headphone jack? (LOL just kidding)

    Would you prefer the front of the device to be something other than white?

    Even the box is nice, also the video I think they took the Danny Winget's video and changed the sounds and background music.

    looks pretty much like this one:

    Should have had a black front. So disappointed in Apple. Not interested at all in white front it just doesn't look nice.
