    So, i bought my iphone 7 plus like 3 months ago and i went for the matte black one. I've been using it really carefully, i handle it gently. But, recently i noticed a different color between the back(housing) and the antenna band (which is supposed to hide/blend the antenna band color with the housing). I'm a person who likes to change phone cases regularly and most of my cases are clear cases. Does it affect the color of my phone?? And sometimes i use my phone naked for a short period of time (like 30 minutes). I have compared my phone and my friend's phone. Mine was lighter than her's (she bought it a month before mine). I need answers please

    Welcome to iMore, Rizaldhy! Glad to have you aboard!

    Seems highly unlikely that your phone would be "fading". Even with the matte black the antenna bands are still going to be visible. Does your friend have the matte black as well? If you're really concerned, I'd certainly recommend taking your Plus into an Apple Store to have them give it a once over.

    Definitely take it to a Apple store to have it checked out if you have the one in a gajillion that is prone to fade I am sure they will address it .
