    I just got the Matte Black tonight. The Jet Black felt a bit cheap. Even though I am using a case with the phone. The matte feels a bit more premium. Damn nice phone.

    I got a matte black on launch day but once I got my hands on jet black, not even a though. Luckily I was within my return period. Jet black feels so nice in hand. It's in a class of its own.

    Matte black because it looks more subtle and premium. Jet Black looks like a 3Gs imo.

    In no way did the 3GS give that high gloss mirror type of finish that the jet black gives and the jet black has a premium feel unlike the plastic feel of the 3GS. I had both matte black and exchanged it for jet. I totally disagree that a flat matte black has more of a premium look to it. Just my opinion.

    Jet black just looks so classy and premium.

    I think the correct answer is...yes. Both look great in their own way. I preferred the Matt Black myself but I can understand why someone would like the Jet Black too.

    Jet Black and I love it...albeit I have mine in a rugged case that protects that beauty, but when I take the phone out I get to admire that shine.

    Black, I know mine is going right into a case. I just had to take my iphone 6 in for service. Been in a case for well over a year. Except maybe one time. I couldn't believe how absolutely mint my phone still looks having been in a lifeproof case all this time. And I work in construction so it really has protected it good.

    Jet Black looks super cool with its mirror finish, but it is prone to scratches. I have mine in a tough case to protect it from my activities and daily inattentive habits (read as prone to drops and bangs), so I only admire the finish the few times I take the phone out of the case. Still looks new as a result with no scratches. In reality the glossy finish wasn't practical for me, but I do like it.

    The shiny back seemed a bit to flashy and finger print prone. Got a matte black and like it a lot.

    Both are cool, as all iPhone colors but I like more Matte Black.

    But definitely my favorite iPhone colors are iPhone 7 Matte Black and iPhone 7 Plus Silver.
    Big iPhone Plus look so gool in silver color special with Black iVisor on front side instead of white edges.

    I love my JB but is in a case all the time. I bought the Otterbox Statement to keep it protected but also allow the colour to show.

    I never thought I would buy a black phone but when I saw the pictures of the JB I was sold.

    Best of both worlds here. I have the MB which is my favorite while rocking a JB Peel case! ❤️

    I have the matte black...looked at the jet black at the Apple store and it was a fingerprint magnet. And I would think that it would be prone to scratching.

    Getting a matte black 128gb on Tues. Excited as I'm switching from an iPhone 6s Plus. I like the Plus but after 8 months, it is too big for everyday use for me.

    Just bought an iPhone 7 Matte Black 128gb. Traded in my iPhone 6s Plus in 128gb. 7 feels so perfect in my hand. I've never dropped a phone until I had the 6s Plus.

    If I had it to do over again, I probably would've gotten matte black. I have my jet black phone so protected, that you can't even tell it's jet black. Not to mention, the cases themselves scuff the finish.

    I was confused as to which one is the one with gloss. I did not choose that one. I like the subtle gray tone the standard one has, so I went with it.
