    You know this thread reminds me of two VERY different mentalities at work here:
    There are those items that upkeep of the original appearance is paramount such as a Louis Vuitton bag, etc. where they are made to withstand a lot of abuse and look exactly as good as they did on day one.
    Then there are those items that are designed to be "broken in", as it were. In fact, their design all but guarantees it - you can look to hand painted Maison Margiela sneakers (at $500-$1,500 a pair) which show wear and tear immediately, with the paint flaking off randomly, thereby creating a unique item.

    I think Jet Black falls into the latter category...

    Sorry guys, I really love jet black color, it's simply astonishing. But I really can't understand buying a top gadget which you can't proper use on a daily basis. If I had to take so much care of my phone, putting cases, choosing the best places to put it on, looking for any micro abrasions, just to discover a few of it in a beautiful sunlight day, I would put myself crazy. For me, no way! Bought a matte black instead. One month without much care but a lot of proper use, with and without cases, and no scratches at all. No single one tiny scratches to bother me! That's the way I like it. But, yes, I have to admit, this jet black is really beautiful! I just can't understand how Apple can do a so fragile finish you can't maintain it shiny for long times.

    In fact, it's only a couple of hours old but currently rocking it Commando

    I went into my local Apple Store today and just for kicks asked if they had any Sim Free Jet Black Iphone 7 Plus models. To my surprise they did. I already have the Matte Black but really missed the Jet Black as I swapped it for the Matte the day I got it. I went ahead and bought it.

    Anyway, how are your jet black models holding up? Any case free people have any thoughts? Those of you using a case with it how is it looking if you remove the case?
    I have a couple of small micro scratches on the bottom back corners - which you can only see if under direct bright light and hold it at a certain angle. I don't regret going caseless and it's held up better than how most made it out to be.

    I have a Speck Presidio and a Peel for those times I may want a little bit of protection but I really refer it caseless.

    I've already put it in a clear case (for now) and a tempered glass protector.

    I like the Peel - it's definitely super thin, but it makes the JB so slippery I took it back off. Back to naked lol

    I had both the peel and the veil on the 6S Plus and couldn't use either because they made the phone more slippery.

    I honestly think the scratching is overblown after owning the Jet Black for over a week. The only time I can see anything is if the phone is in direct sunlight and I am staring at it. Otherwise it looks brand new. Just so nice to hold. I'm seriously thinking about modding the Apple logo to make it glow. Would void the warranty but looks freaking awesome. I'd keep the Matte unaltered though.

    Put a case on my phone on day 1. Installed a skin on day 15. I'm at day 30 and the phone still looks brand new, I highly recommend a clear skin if you aren't too clumsy.

    I kind of regret not getting a jet black 7+. I let other people talk me into the matte black & was scared of the jet black scratching like crazy. :/

    The tech 21 gem, got rid of it after the scratches and grabbed another silicone and no problems ever since.

    Yeah I figured that was the case. I use the Apple leather case and it hasn't caused a single a abrasion.
