    Personally (just me) I don't care if Jet Black or Matte Black, I am just tired a white phone face. I keep a case on it 24/7. Just wanted the white gone.. LOL

    I choose jet black because it's beautiful but after reading a lot of these comments I'm thinking I should have got matte

    I read in one of the articles, I believe by Renee, that the Jet Black has more grip than the other colors. They have the same finish as the 6/6S, which in my opinion, is very slippery.

    I was all ready to order jet black, but when 3 am EST came around I decided last minute to order the matte black instead. I just know that scratches would drive me mental and I know that I would eventually scratch the frame around the lightening port from charging.

    Just to piggyback off this, here's the excerpt and the article:

    Except for the jet black iPhone 7. You'll still want to get a case to avoid scuffs, but the finish is so polished it's actually far less slippery than any other metal iPhone. It's almost... sticky.

    What color iPhone 7 should you get: Silver, gold, rose gold, black, or jet black? | iMore

    I obviously haven't seen in real life. But I would assume the Jet Black, because of its shine finish would be susceptible to fingerprint smudges. Which drive me nuts. If I could afford it, I would get the matte black.

    I'm thinking of going with the black only because I might scratch the jet black too much. I always use a case with all my phones but now and then I like to live on the edge and take it out naked.

    Definitely the matte black. I love the color black, but it's just matte black just does something to me.

    Nah, it'll look great and they make a ton of great clear cases now that will add grip and protection and allow you to show it off! Personally I went with the Matte Black but check out then Otterbox Statement Case.

    Matte if I had to choose. Less fingerprints and scuff marks.

    Ordered the jet black. Has the largest demand. Planning on going to a store next week to look at it and decide whether to change to another color or not.

    Jet black with a clear case would be the best option to me

    That would be my option as well. Otherwise, the matte black would be better...naked.

    I loved the slate iPhone 5 and the Matte Black iPhone 7 is by all accounts darker than that. So Matte Black it is for me...

    Don't like shiny black. So matte black would be my preference. Also might go without a case for awhile and the JB is prone to fine scratches or
    so they are saying.

    I opted for Matte black. I just don't like the Jet Black finish at all. I didn't like it on my 2/3/3GS either, so why put myself through the torture again. Whilst my 7 plus will be cased, i'll know which phone I bought and the Jet Black just would not make me happy.
