    The home button ring in the front of the gold and silver models are too shiny and elegant for taste. Especially when you have a case on the phone. Without the case the sides compliment the home button well and it's less distracting IMO.

    I just picked up my 5s this weekend and I just couldn't pull the trigger on the gold one. After my last two iPhones were white, the black is a nice switch. Easier on the eyes when using for long periods.

    I have also had white iPhones and iPads in the past and decided to go with Space grey on this one. I really like my color choice.

    I decided to go with the GOLD, and NO regrets. It's different and an eye catcher. It's one of the main reasons I even looked at the iphone seriously. Every time someone looks at it, there is a certain WOW in there eyes and the statement that follows "I shound have gotten the GOLD" or "I should have waited". NO regrets whats so ever

    Only regret I had was getting a silver first, but that all ended up working out 😁

    Loving the gold & keeping it in a clear Spigen case 👍👍

    I think we should give htc a credit, they try to have a good design and i put them second after iphone, while i like the gold champagne on iphone i like less on htc , but i like the htc silver maybe the size that i like less.

    I got Gold iPhone 5s and no regret so far. I think all 3 colors for iPhone 5s are great. Can't go wrong with any of the color. I like iPhone 5's darker gray over iPhone 5s' space gray though.

    I had a 64GB Gold one on reserve with my carrier but it would have taken too long to get here. But, it gave me time to really think it through. I found a Space Grey model in another town so I grabbed it because I've never really been a fan of the white face on the iPhone, and once I saw how nice the Space Grey looked out of the box it didn't take much to make me forget about the Gold one.

    No regrets what so ever. I purchased a 64GB Gold about two weeks ago on a whim, and I totally enjoy having it. I've had white since the 4s and my 4 was black. This makes me feel like I have a new phone even though it's the same as the 5 I had previously (shape). I have a clear case to show it off, and yeah I like to show it in all its gold/champaign glory.

    I've had my gold for over a month now and I am absolutely loving it. I have the white iPad but this is my first white front plate iPhone. I just wish I got a 32gb.

    I don't regret it. I wish they had a black and gold option though. I would have done back flips for that. Still looking for a suitable case. I got the tan let her ape case which is now looking very dirty. I got the 64g which is fantastic. The video SUCKS in low light though. Very unsatisfied with that. Overall love it though!
