    Do you have links? I would love to read this because the being less slippy would make me choose it.

    Why do people care about the color of their phones when most of us put a case on the thing that covers up the color?

    Does that mean you will consider Rose Gold?

    They both look really good, but I think the matte black will be better for daily handling without a case.

    Did not want to open a separate thread for this. But when does Apple historically send out the demo units to stores. Do they wait until official launch day or are they there sooner?

    Struggled with this decision but went Black versus Jet Black. As cool as I bet the Jet Black is, I couldn't get hi res photos showing any major Face Plate differences. Also, I think I might like what appears to be a textured back to the Black and other colors. Who knows. Can always return...paid full retail so I get 30 Days versus 14 if they still do it that way.

    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.

    Possibly because a few hours prior the the App Sore was open and people put in their orders in all the way up to Payment Confirmation and then Favorited it. So at 3am you had to go through the whole process and other people opened the app, hit my Account, and confirm order. Their device, payment, and shipping info was already there. You can order in under 15 seconds that way. Seems Apple for wise and took that loophole down 2-3 hours before go time.

    I went with the iPhone 7 matte black. I was teetering between the two blacks but ultimately went matte. Can't wait for that 256gb memory, I have almost 80 gigs of pics and videos and my 6s is full to the max. I should be able to rock 256 GB for 2-3 years before I fill that up.

    I considered rose gold. I really like my wife's rose gold 6s. I just couldn't actually do it, the black is my favorite.

    Daringfireball indicates the jet black is grippy.

    Jet black. I don't really care if it gets scratched up but i baby it anyways. Matte is too slippery. Hopefully can go caseless. If not, a speck grip black is in my future.

    I first thought jet black then changed and went with regular black.

    I can't go w/o a case. Would drive my OCD self nuts! That being said I love the Speck grip cases! Can't go wrong. I have them on my 6 now. Oddly though when checking out last night I got the iPhone 7 black leather case. I had one for my 5s and I sorta miss it.

    IMHO the Jet Black back will be way more slippery than than the Matte Black back, again just my opinion.

    I would say that your concerns are right on point. Before you buy (if you can wait that long) is to see if the might have the jet black phone in the store For you to play around with.
