5 Jet and Glossy Black alternatives to the iPhone 7

5 Jet and Glossy Black alternatives to the iPhone 7
Everyone wants the Jet Black versions of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Units are sold out worldwide and Apple still struggles to catch up with the high demand. In the meantime, Samsung is looking to fill the niche and is about to release its own shiny black version of the Galaxy S7 edge. All eyes are on the two giants battling for the glossy black supremacy this winter, as people eagerly wait for the opportunity to wipe fingerprints off their phones' glass backs every five seconds.

But we here at PhoneArena began to wonder, aren't there any other glossy black options? Of course there are. So, in case you're not too keen on waiting for an iPhone 7 Plus or the new glossy Galaxy S7 edge, here are some alternatives that you can buy right now.

There you have it, folks. Plenty of glossy options for you to consider. And we hope many more will come, once Apple and Samsung prove that color alone can make a phone sell way better.

I heard that Honor 8 looks pretty stunning in person.

The Honor 8 is absolutely gorgeous in person. Everytime I'm in Best Buy, I'm so tempted to just give in and buy one. I've always wanted to give Huawei a try, and really don't like the look of the 6P or their Mate series, so maybe Honor 8 will be my first Huawei device.

Yeah it is. Every color is beautiful! I recommend trying it, it's a great phone, and even more of a deal now with these Cyber Monday sales.

And Apple says Jet Black as "new black".

That might be true only for fans. For normal consumer, there's always some alternative.

It amazes me how much people like black phones. I'll take ANY colour but black, never black. Give me gold, silver, white, blue or even pink ahead of black. I simply won't buy black if that is all that is available, which it is with some carriers. Don't know why I dislike black, maybe I like to see some contrast between the black screen and the rest of the phone.
