    I have a Nike avatar because it's my favorite brand my choice, not because Phil Knight tells me it should be. The products for my needs are the best. I don't get them for the status symbol of it...

    No **** it's his money it's all our money we can do what we want with it. If you want something literally to show off that you have it because other people don't then that's silly to me. I ordered a gold because I wanted a white phone since I've had a black 5 and I actually liked how the gold turned out. I'm not getting it to "show off" because I think that's high schoolish...you're clearly missing the point trying to be made.

    All in all you should get what you want for whatever reason it is. IMO if that reason is because you want to be cool then it's silly.
    I hear your point. I've never been the type to want to look " cool". Not me. I do things for myself. To make me happy and content. I was exactly like you, I had a black iPhone 5 and wanted a change with the 5S so I originally wanted gold. I couldn't get it cause of short supply so I got the silver.
    In saying this I wasn't fully satisfied because I didn't initially get the colour I wanted particularly.
    So to verify a few things I didn't want the gold to " show off" or say " I'm at a high status" or anything childish like that.
    I wanted to get it for ME.
    Pow!

    If your getting it for you, that's all that matters!

    Sean is clearly still missing the point. You know nothing about brands etc in my life, you just assume because I have a swoosh that's all I care about. Their products aren't "outperformed in every way". In some cases yes, that's when I'll wear my mizunos or brooks. Clearly you aren't big into sports apparel technology like I am as well.

    It's funny that all this is coming from the same guy who bought a gold iphone and flipped it to make a little profit. 😂

    What planet are you on right now man? Because you've gone from judgmental to down right bizarre in the matter of a few posts. Who said anything about nike being all that you care about? And in that, who said that the gold iPhone was all he cared about? I'm perfectly clear on your post, you were being judgmental when you have no room to be at all. And how on earth could you deduce that I'm not big on sports apparel? I have a closet full of sports apparel, more varying brands of athletic shoes than you could shake a stick at...I also understand how Nike makes a majority of it's revenue, and it isn't because their gear is the best in the business for actual usage.

    And lastly...how does my flipping of the gold iPhone have any relevance to this conversation?

    You were being a judgmental ***** initially and now, you want to be the "if it's for you, that's all that matters!" guy? Really? LOL! The fact you've changed your tune tells the whole story bud.

    Honestly, I just find it hilarious that someone would have gall to tell another person that their reasoning for spending THEIR OWN MONEY is silly or "wrong". Especially when they wear a status symbol "label" in their avatar. Hypocrisy at it's finest.

    You are literally [redacted]. Spending your money for other reason than looking cool and hip IS DUMB.

    That's not what he's doing, that's why I said its fine. Genius.

    Good luck with your color swap. It sounds more trouble than its worth. You are gonna use a case right?

    I went from wanting to get 5s now to thinking about getting in December and then possibly holding off until next year for a 6. Lol thanks to delay in being able to supply the need of consumer. For now I'm still using my 3GS in an otter case.

    Sweetheart, did you so quickly forget your first posts? How ignorant you were being? I mean it was less than an hour ago, your short term memory couldn't be THAT bad, could it?

    What business is it of yours how anyone but YOU spends their money? Get off your high horse bud.

    It's a forum where people express their opinions, and I was expressing mine on the situation. Are you going to lose sleep over it?

    I'm not going to lose a wink over it...and yes, the forum is a place to share opinions, and to YOU, spending money on that kind of thing is silly and "wrong". When you start trying to apply that to other people though, you've stepped out of that boundary, and you've entered into a judgmental arena when you had no room to do so (and is certainly not what these forums are made for).

    You wanted to be the jacka$$, you got called on it and you didn't like you. Move on little one, you're burying yourself here.

    • Be a pro. Don’t get into arguments over dumb things. If someone responds in a poor or rude fashion, ignore it. If you notice a pattern of rude or poor behavior from a particular member, report them to our moderators. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. In a nutshell, ‘think before you post’.
    • Be attentive and helpful. Answer questions in a timely manner when you can, and provide thoughts and suggestions that might lead to the solution of a members’ problem.

    I think it is important to get exactly what you want. If you don't, it will bother you that you don't have what you set out to get. I have learned this lesson the hard way.

    I have the gold and its definitely nice but I would like to point out it is a light shade of "gold" and in good lighting actually looks like the silver.

    Just my two cents..

    At launch day last Friday I had to get 2 iphone 5S. A space grey 16gb for me and gold 32gb for my wife. I already have a new lifeproof case for her phone...so realistic you wont be able to tell her iphone is gold. She always used good cases to cover her phone since we have 3 kids. The moment I found out that there was no gold and only silver or space grey 32gb she said NO!!!! I call her again and she said NO I want GOLD!!! So I had to order from apple.com with a shipping date until October. I left the store happy with my phone and while I waited at store to upgrade and activate new device I ordered hers. So you know people want GOLD!!! LoL
