    Is there anybody here who really wanted a matte black 7-Plus...but settled on a silver model because of availability?

    How do you like the silver/white color now?

    One of my mates did. He wanted black initially. After he saw how the in store model that has got nicks and where you can see the silver metal inside, he decided to go with silver. Availability played a role there as well.

    I essentially went and got a silver/white model....But just couldnt do it... Finally found a Matte Black 256gb at a local sams club and purchased. And extra plus is that all of their phones are at A1661 models so mine is already fully unlocked as well.

    Given all the concerns with the blacks in terms of fingerprints, scratches, etc. I am rethinking waiting to get one. Silver would be my third choice, but maybe the right one. I'll probably have a damn case on it most of the time, so it may not matter.

    There are no known concerns over the Matte Black with fingerprints and/or scratching. It's the Jet Black you're referring to, the glossy / shiny one.

    For what it's worth I've used my JB caseless since I received it (two weeks now) and it doesn't show fingerprints nearly as bad as people led me to believe - nor do I have any scratches and I'm not going out of my way to be careful with it at all.

    That's what I saw too.. So I'm still on the fence about the Matt Black..

    I had a matte black iPhone 7 and decided I wanted the 7 Plus instead and the only available color was silver. I couldn't care less about the color, tbh. It's in a case.

    Do u find the white face distracting?
    I quite like how everything is blacked out on the black face - that only the screen is bright? If you know what I mean?

    I went with the Matte Black 7 (not plus) as I did not want another "white face" phone. I am glad I did.. such a difference for me personally / visually. But it's a nice thing, everyone can get what they like!!

    White phones are distracting on the front and it makes the phone look and feel a lot bigger than a black one as it fools the eye and brain. Test them side by side the white ones really looks bigger.

    I got a silver because I couldn't find a black. However, with a black case and a full face black tempered screen guard, the only part of my phone that is white is the home button.

    Be patient and wait to have greater availability, so when you take the desicion not be based on the availability of one or the other

    I alternate between black and white faces. This year it was time for a white face. Although both blacks are beautiful to me, I went with silver. Next year I'll probably go back to the black face...or not...silver is my favorite color!

    i was entering a competition earlier this week and we were given the option to either have a Sliver or Matte Black iPhone 7. In my eyes there is nothing wrong with the Silver and i obviously would purchase it if there was no other colours available, but its just been around for so long and i would rather have something fresh and new..

    You're absolutely right. Had a brain freeze. I was anxious to see and possibly get the Jet Black. Not so much now.
