    Default iPhone 7 Plus Jet Black or Black?

    After seeing the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which black color will you get? I don't know wether to get the Jet Black or the Black color. They both look great. What do you guys think?

    To me, the Jet Black makes sense over Black if you already planned to get that amount of storage anyway. If you are more of the 64gb or 32gb person, it would be a waste of money to go so high for a color.

    Black.

    Jet black looks like a fingerprint magnet. (But it might not matter much, in a case).

    Actually, in a case...you could have either color, and nobody could tell.

    That came to mind when I initially saw it as well. Yet, I recall how clean I kept my iPhone 4S...

    Matte Black for me however I think the interest in this color is high and probably be on backorder from Apple shortly .

    black is so sleek. The jet black looks like a finger print magnet and cheap.

    Matte black - I think I'd give myself OCD if I had the jet black ... dust, scratches and fingerprints would drive me nuts

    I agree. Looks like Jet Black is prone to scratches.

    I personally don't like the glossy look of the jet black. But the regular black looks great.

    This is the bottom line:
    Last night I woke up at 3 am eastern to reserve jet black 7 plus 256 thru the my existing apple upgrade program. CI got thru within a minute of the store coming back online. At this point there were no jet blacks AT ALL to reserve in ANY. Of the stores in my state.. In fact, I checked preorders as well at 3:05 am est and it said all jet black 7 plus shipping 4 to 6 weeks,
    Based on the foregoing as well as the fact that I keep my phone in a case and the apple disclaimer that the jet black is more prone to scratching,- a no brainier. MATTE BLACK was reserved.

    Btw, matte black was sold out shortly thereafter as well. Glad I made a decision

    It was. Within a minute of preorders being opened on the Apple Store. See my post above.
