    I like to swap year to year. White one year and black the next.

    I'm jonesin for a 128 Space Grey and I was thinking that that would be easy pickings with the new Rose Gold but dead wrong.

    That space grey is never available (in the Colorado Springs store at least). Maybe it's because there are three white facing phones and only one black facing phone. Or the pristine white fad is finally over. Or Rose Gold was a bust.

    I have no idea...but I sit and wait anyway.

    Just check Apple Store inventory whenever you can check during the day. It'll come up. It's not really that sacred.

    I think the white faced iPhones are more practical for me just because I am not able to see the fine scratches on the glass as much as I would with a black faced iPhone over time. Also, I just like the "clean" look of the white and silver. Especially with the silver ring for the Touch ID. To each his own really.

    Try the Apple store on your current Apple device @8AM sharp everyday and reserve for same day pick up. Thats how I got mine a week after Apple iPhone Launch Day.

    The new 6s/6s Plus has a new stronger and scratch resistant Apple Glass thats not supposed to get those microscopic scratches anymore, but time will tell. As of right now I don't have any scratches or microscopic scratches on my screen and I'm without a screen protector for the first time in my smartphone life (over 8+years).

    It's all about timing. I walked into my local AT&T store yesterday and said I want the 6s space gray 128gb. Store employee said, we've been out since day 1 but just got a few in today.

    As far as I am concerned the answer is yes. I like the black face a lot. And the grey color back is bad to the bone. Plus it is as close to Spurs colors as it gets.

    Some weirdness with my order, they told me my rose gold was delayed due to north American wide shortage and then bam one week later it arrived. I don't think the carrier reps really had a clue to begin with (shocker!)

    I went with 128gb space grey too. This is my first iPhone since the 3G for personal use. I have a 4s for work but I barely use it.

    Only option for me due to a black face.
    The only white face phone I had was a Note II back in 2012.
    I thought I would like it but I find that the white bezel around a display causes eyestrain with prolonged use.
    It would be great if they offered the other colors with a black bezel as featured in space grey!
    Other anodized colors such as ruby red, sapphire, turquoise, etc. would even make it more interesting.
    Even though I keep mine in a case I tend to prefer a color close to the natural aluminum color.
    Because even in a case you can get tiny nicks due to sand getting in and with a color that's darker than the natural aluminum it shows. This anodizing over the 7K series seems to be tougher than previous generations.
    It's hard to tell because the drop tests either focus on whether the display cracks or totally destroying the phone with a high power rifle or blending it, etc.!

    A real test would involve an iphone 6 and iphone 6s in a case like a speck with a bunch of silica sand tossed in and used for a month. I'd be curious as to how the finish fares after such modest but real world abuse. I have both phones, cases and lots of sand but I'm not sacrificing mine!

    p.s. I used iStockNow Live iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Stock Map to find a 128GB rose gold + for my wife.

    I just put an order in with my carrier and waited. It sucks not having your new phone sure but it was worth it to get exactly what I wanted (white 128 GB 6s+). The phone is beautiful.

    It seems like it depends on which area of the U.S. you are located or the timing, especially if you're purchasing online.

    I went through T-Mobile a couple days after launch, and the 128GB Space Grey was he only one they had in stock, so I took it (originally was going to get a Silver 64GB). Every other 6S+ color/size was 4-6 weeks out at that time.

    It wound up going on back order the next day, but luckily two days later if shipped out and arrived the next day. Was pretty surprised I was able to snag one after waiting so late to decide to give iOS a shot again, but with my experience the 128GB Space Grey was the only color/size model that I could have picked up in a reasonable mount of time, lol

    Loving it BTW

    The thing with the Space Grey one, is it's the only one with a black face. I can't stand the white face. Too distracting when watching videos.

    If Apple made a Gold with Black face... They'd sell out in no time!
