    I think the gold just looks sick. I love the look and even if more women like it then men, then more women will like the look of my phone. I don't see a problem here at all. I will however have to invest in purple silk shirts and beige pants. Gotta rock Gold properly.

    Would having a gold iPhone make you look like a d-bag? I want the gold one because it is different from my silver iPhone 5. I like the black one too but I think it would be more prone to scuffs and scratches.

    Opulence. I has it.

    You just made my whole f'ing day complete.

    Actually I'd like the gold more if it was with black and not white glass. But whatever.

    They used to say the same thing about the white color. Personally, I think the gold color is awesome. I don't like it as much as the silver, but it is awesome.

    I was saying the same thing to a friend the other day. Don't think I'll be getting the Gold one unless it's my only option.

    I hate to say this, but with the white glass it looks...cheap! It just doesn't read high end to me at all and instead just screams novelty.

    Agreed. Black and gold or purple and gold would be awesome.

    I agree. Would look better in black with gold accents. Steeler fan here, so maybe I'm bias ...

    I think the gold looks classy. I'm not big on gold, specifically gold jewelry but the gold iPhone seems to be more of a subtle gold, not too overwhelming. If/when I upgrade I will be getting the gold. Although I do wish they released a 4th color option, that being a gold/black combo. Now that would look real slick.

    Vikings fan? Hah, I think purple and gold would look pretty cool as well. I, myself, am a Vikings fan. Also my favorite color is purple, and my high school colors were purple and gold.

    Not so much. I’d much prefer a Navy and Orange phone...maybe with a big #6 stenciled on the back... da Bears.

    Who's still debating? I have a black 5 right now... Looked at a friend's white 5 this am... Still on the fence whether to stay black (space grey) or go white, then decide silver vs gold... Arghhh

    I was set in black/grey but now I'm wondering... I'm worried that - for me -the novelty of the gold will wear off. The white/silver would be something pretty much different than all my past iPhones. But part of me still wants to play it safe and go black.

    I am not so much worried about the novelty wearing off, I am worried that everyone is going to get it. I like to have a different color, and I have a feeling that gold will be real popular. Plus, it has a white face. I like the way white looks; however, I also like to use colored cases to mix things up so I do not get bored. White face with red, orange, etc can look real feminine real quick IMO. But those same colors with the black face look fine. Just my ignorant opinion.......although I am going to put hands on it before deciding.

    With only 3 colors, I guarantee plenty of others will have the same color.

    I saw a picture with Black/Slate beside Space Grey and the Space Grey is not as nice IMO. I know blah blah hard to anodize blah. But damn why didn't they do Gold with Black accents? Now I'm flip flopping between Gold and Space Grey. I hate the white face but the Sky Grey is not appealing at all.

    Hmm that's what i was afraid of, that the grey is not black enough. Do you happen to have that picture?

    I'd just like to say --

    Of course the gold iPhone looks feminine. Absolutely.

    So none of you guys are going to want it on Friday.

    And so it's going to sit in the Apple Store, waiting for me ... I mean, others ... to buy it without having to brave the early lines.

    UPDATE: You especially don't want a 64 GB gold one.

    Just think of it as a giant handbag.
