    I've had a gold 6 and 6+. I've also had a space grey 6 and 6+. The space grey IMHO is definitely nicer. However, the white face plates don't show that the glass screen protectors don't adhere around the edges.
    Sure they do! I've had two -- both had issues. The current one isn't adhered at the bottom left but I don't see that as much as the one before that was top right.

    Ok maybe just not as obvious as on the space grey. I switched over the the Zagg HDX full body. No issues with the curved edges.

    Does it cover the whole screen, or does it look like it's the glass one?

    I have had the white 5 and 5s so this time I went with the space gray for my 6. It does show more smudges but it doesn't bother me at all. I wanted something different since the last 3 years I have had a white phone. It's up to you they both look great, it's just a matter of personal preference.

    The black face seems best for videos, you tube, movies, tv shows, pictures. The black lets you focus in on what you are viewing, not the surrounding border. With that said most of the apps have lighter back grounds and integrate best with the white face. So if you mostly e-mail, blog, surf forums, the white face blends better. I have had both in previous iPhones and liked them both.

    This time I went with space grey/black face. Using Apple black leather case so entire phone is black. I even loaded up jet black back ground so the apps sit on a totally black front. Can't readily see where screen line is. Whole front face looks like the screen. Black face also hides the front camera, and proximity sensor as well as minimizing the speaker slit.

    Only thing I didn't like about the white face was that the screen has a thin black border all way around. That defines the screen size vs the surrounding bezel size. With black face that border is not noticeable. In end just decide, you will like either. We humans tend to validate our own decisions. We like being right so you will surely enjoy whatever you choose.

    Thanks for all replies. Guess it boils down to personal taste. As I have never owned phone with white bezels, it might do just fine. And I don't look that much video content on phone anymore. Mostly daily web browsing and social networks.
    Have reservations on both colors, so gotta see which one gets delivered first 😃

    This is strictly a matter of personal preference. I prefer the black bezel, which limits my choices for phone color. I really do like the space gray - and will continue to do so. The only white bezeled devices we (wife and kids) we have ever owned was one iPhone 4S (daughter's first iPhone) and one iPad Air (wife's - no black devices available and she wanted it prior to vacation trip).

    IMHO, the gold and silver devices are gaudy and ugly. And the white bezels just look odd. But that’s just my preference.

    For me, white bezel is very distracting. It makes colors appear to be more dull to my eyes too. I prefer black as it fades into the background and allows the colors to be vibrant.

    Aye,I guess people learns to like the one they decide to buy. In my country there is no "2 week return policy" so the one I buy will be my "main driver" for couple of years. Went today to local shop to try both colors. For some reason the white one was more appealing to use. More pleasant for eyes. No idea why as I have always been on the dark side 😁

    And about colors, well as I have owned Samsung device with AMOLED display, the vibrant colors are familiar to me. And I think that with SG iPhone you can get as close to that as possible. On white phone I guess the colors are more natural, or dull as mentioned above? So in the end the phone asks you do you like more amoled-type color experience or more natural type color. Do I make any sense with this?😃

    Personally I prefer black but White/Gold was the last model they had in stock and I'm perfectly fine with that. . I tend to switch up every upgrade but if you watch a lot of video content the black borders would be better for viewing purposes.

    The reason why I have always stuck with the white/silver from the iPhone 5 is because I like the clean look it has. Granted, the space gray is sleek, I still like the white/silver. Especially on the 5s when I had it. Just loved the silver ring around the fingerprint scanner and the silver chamfered edges. The main reason I like the white is because of the unique boot screen. The black Apple with the white background instead of the white Apple and black background that is found on the space gray models and all previous iPhones before they had the white option available.

    So I ended up with silver one. Thanks all for you input.
    It seems I'm very fond of white and silver combination already. More pleasant to my eyes than black and when sitting on a desk it just looks classic. Tho I guess you get same effect with space grey. Both phones rocks in terms of looks.

    I bought a space grey on day one and I changed with a gold one last week.
    I like a lot more white display. I love the continuity of a white face with the lines on the back of the phone.

    I did the opposite. I got tired of having the white bezels. I really wish Apple would do a gold and black combo. Now that would be hot. I do miss the gold that's why but I love how sleek the black bezel looks.

    I'm always a fan of black phones. But get whatever you feel represents your taste more.

    I rolled with silver since that's the color that was available when I exchanged my iPhone Plus. It's your phone. Only you should get to decide what color you want.

    Every one of my iPhones has been black since the 3GS. This time I went with Gold for my iPhone 6.

    Best. choice. ever.

    It's beautiful, stays clean and the white bezel makes things seem to pop more. I know it's just my eyes, but I like the way it looks..
