    I love the gold and I hope they continue that into the iPhone 6 as I'll definitely get a gold one. My iPhone 5 is white/silver but all my previous iPhones have been black.

    I appreciate all the input.........just got back from the store about an hour ago, and had to make a decision. Told the clerk that I'd like to trade my 5C in and put that money towards a full retail 5S, and he said, "that's fine...what color would you like?" at which point I muttered....


























    ".........ehhhhhhhh....GOLD!!!!!!!!!! GIVE ME THAT GOLD 5S NOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    So, yeah. Rockin' a new gold 5S.
    ConGrats on the GOOOOOOOLD!!!...........SMILE

    Had the gold for a couple of weeks and felt as much as a man as I do now. My girlfriend had no complaints.

    Overall, it's the white phone, no matter the maker, that gets this perception. It's not like it's a fuchsia color.

    I'm surprised this is even a topic. It's not like it's a pink phone.

    I haven't seen (in person) a male with the gold, but I see no problem with it. I'm a female with the space gray and I'm no where near masculine, so I don't think the gold makes a male feminine.

    I wore a gold watch for years. A gold chain. Several gold rings. Why not a gold phone? If the iPhone 6 comes in gold, that's what I'll get. It's the manly thing to do.

    I say to each his own. I thought hard about the gold 5s and decided against it. You would have to have a clear case to even know it was gold. Otherwise any other case would hide the gold and make it look white. I am not down with white so I chose the space grey. With a black Speck Candyshell case it looks dope!

    I'm a guy, I have a gold 5s, and it's fine.

    I'd have slightly preferred a black and gold one, but before the gold one was pitched I meant to get a silver 5s. (Had a black 3GS and a slate 5, it was time to switch things up.)

    I would be comfortable with a yellow 5c, but a pink one would be a bridge too far for me. (Some can do it, just like they can wear pink shirts; just not me.)

    It's a clean industrial design, it's not like it's covered in sparkles or something.

    Maybe there should be a limited edition iPhone with sparkles on it.

    There are the true gold ones made by jewellers in London and the like -- they have diamonds on them that serve that purpose.

    Wouldn't be caught dead with those, although perhaps one day, in more prosperous times, it could serve as a gift if I've done something truly awful...

    I got a gold 5s. I don't see an issue as long as you don't make yourself act/look feminine.

    Or you can just be a secure person who looks and acts however they want... While carrying whatever color phone you want.

    I went from a black 5, to a white 5S and next time around I may actually get the Gold. I initially thought it was tacky but now I'm reevaluating that opinion.

    I don't necessarily understand why a color would make you seem or feel any which way...

    Didn't mean it in any kind of way but you're definitely right, color shouldn't matter and I don't see gold being feminine either .

    Uh oh. I'm gay, and I have a gold iPhone 5S. Guess the stereotype is true! Lol all joking aside. Color doesn't matter. It's all about preference if you're a "manly man" and you want a gold phone, get it. It's a color. Colors don't define us.
    Our personalities do.
