    It's not tough. I have a scratch in the middle of my screen. My 6s Plus has no scratches & I don't treat the devices any differently.

    My 6s Plus I went like a week without screen protector and I had several light scratches in the oleophobic coating. Now never again will I go without one.

    I started with matte black and really liked it, but I didn't like how it had a lightish tint when the light touched it. Plus when I watched the keynote in September I fell in love with jet black. So I switched it for jet black and couldn't be happier. This thing looks like glass plus I installed a slickwrap naked skin on it to avoid scratches.

    I hate them with the curved screens. I refuse to get one. I'm not freaking out or anything about the scratch, I just expected the screen to be just as good as my 6s Plus. Oh well🤷🏾*♀️

    I am considering this phone in the fall as my 5C is slowing down a little and I doubt ios11 will be available for it.

    At Sasktel recently I saw a nice clear plastic thin case but with gold accents along the top and bottom. I think that will be my choice for a case.

    I have read that the jet black 7 is slippery but this could be because of the rounded edges of the 7. I do appreciate the squared off edges on the 5C because I feel relatively safe using it nakey.

    I will be reading all the iPhone 7 posts I can in the next few weeks, that I can to help me decide.

    Actually, I've found the Jet Black to be the least slippery of all the colors. It's pretty grippy

    If they bring out the new phone I'm white, that'll be my next phone. I love my jet black but I still prefer the white face iPhones...

    OK I'm getting convinced ;-) how about scratches because one video I saw showed a guy advising people always putting it down on the table glass down to avoid scratching

    I don't have any visible scratches on mine & it's naked more often than not. Took this pic a few days ago.

    Very nice you've got the plus I see. The reason I ask about the slipperyness is because generally people say the jet black is more slippery than say that Matte black.

    I also think I would get the Apple silicone case, as I do have it for my 5C from Apple but that makes it so difficult to get in and out of a pocket. I prefer naked too I think actually.

    The JB has the best grip, I have had both. The MB is the same as 6 and 6S series, as slippery as soap.

    I think people just assume it's slippery because it's glossy. The fact of the matter is it has more grip than any other iPhone.

    Don't worry I believe you haha. I'll go to BestBuy later and check them out, will post some pics. Many of the video review vids I have seen keep saying this about it. I remember checking out the iPhone 7 when they first came out but I can't recall if "slippery" or not.

    I'll see what they have for cases also

    It is very hard to not use the jet black caseless. It's so grippy and pretty.

    Do you know what is odd, when I had an iPad 1, and near the end of its usefulness, I took out my pocket knife and showed my friends that the glass would not easily scratch. In fact I could NOT scrTch it. Then now somehow on my iPad Air and 5C I got a couple of scratches and with these newer devices I was trying to be careful lol.

    I never use to use screen protectors back on iPhone 4/4s and etc. never had scratching. Now I get scratching within a couple of days if I don't use one.

    OK so I went to Best Buy and checked out the iPhone 7 in black and yeah it's not too slippery. Last week it was on for zero dollars if you sign a two-year contract but now it's back up to $300, but I'm in no rush I'll just wait a while. I would only get $50 for a trade on my 5C. Here are some of the cases I kind of liked and the official Apple and leather for $59 was pretty nice. If I get a black iPhone I like the idea of those clear cases…

    I have a matte and a jet black. My matte is 5 months old and has very slight marks on antenna lines from switching cases. Barely noticeable and looks brand new.

    My jet black is a week old and has micro scratches all over the lower part of it from me changing cases and one longer scratch in the middle that I can see at certain angles. They didn't lie when they said it shows scratches easily.

    You should return it if it bothers you that much. Assuming you bought new you're still within return window.

    Well I'm not sure I really want to pay a couple hundred dollars extra for 128 GB I would be fine with 32 GB it's all I ever need. I have 55 apps on my iPhone 5c and I still have 4 1/2 free gigs left over. But I use the battery Dr. app to really keep it cleaned up and tight. So yeah I'll probably get Gold if that's the case.

    32 is not much... especially with that increase in MP (aka larger picture file size) of that sweet camera... the 7Plus should be 64 minimum imho
