    Default Do you regret getting a Gold iPhone 5s?

    Simple question here. Was wondering if anyone out there now regrets their decision to get the GOLD iPhone 5s? You know, buyers' remorse? Looking back, would you have rather picked the space grey or silver options? Did the gold get old real fast, or are you happy with your choice?

    It got old, but I don't regret it.

    I switch colours when I upgrade. So when I get an iPhone 6 or 6s or 7, I'll go black (likely Space Grey?) again.

    I would have regretted keeping it before my 30 days were up. I instead just exchanged it for a black again.

    No regrets... passed on the gold and the silver phones in favor of the Space Gray...

    Not at all...they were quite valuable. After having the Space Grey model now though, it is certainly my preference of color for the 5S, especially in a black leather Apple case.

    The black has always been my favorite version. It be slate, space grey, and even the black versions of all the other iPhones.

    After seeing the Gold one in person I knew I would have regretted buying it, so I went with my much loved Silver 5S.

    Not at all. Waited a month for it and worth every minute. I constantly get comments on it. Hate to cover it up with a case so compromised and got a crystal clear case. Not much drop protection, but keeps it from getting scratched.

    Which Chrystal clear case did you get? I know switcheasy.com has one (called nude) and so does idamericany.com (called ice). I'm leaning towards getting the id america ny one.

    I have no regrets. I woke up to buy it moments for launch. I love the gold ring around the home button.

    I got one yesterday and am really trying to like it. I keep looking at my wife's space grey and kind of wishing I would have gotten that one.

    Don't regret getting the gold at all. Very happy with my choice and glad I waited and didn't settle for the other colors. 😄

    Make her trade you ... it's a chick color anyhow, so I doubt if she'll mind.
