You tried this in another thread and got bitch slapped. It's okay to reuse your ammo if it was effective. This is like shooting blanks. Alik and Miket style. Haha

You know it. Apple doesn't invent anything, but they popularize them. The mouse, the GUI, the MP3 player, the tablet, THE MODERN SMARTPHONE AS WE KNOW IT, 64-bit processors in phones, fingerprint sensors in phones, THE COLOR GOLD, and probably a ton of other things.

Surely the reason people prefer the new colour is because it will stand out as new. Their friends will all notice it as different. If it weren't for the colour could you tell it was a new phone just by looking from a distance?

You probably can't even tell the difference up close, let alone from a distance. Yet some isheep apparently can't tell the difference between a GS2 and a GS3. I guess they are at a stage where they are not advanced enough to tell the difference between shapes like iodine. Lol

Or maybe it's because rose gold is a nice looking color that appeals to women, who buy tons of iPhones. Nah, that can't be it.

The iPhone is getting more of a status icon than a phone now. god I miss the 4/4s days when iPhones totally look bad-arse especially in black.

5/5S in black looked like the best iphone ever in my eyes. Never liked the full glass of before models. I have to admit 6 in pictures looked horrible until I took it up close it didnt look as bad but not as good as 5/5S

So it's a matter of time before Samsung and other Chinese mobile makers will come out with their own rose gold colored phone.

Apple announces their own unique brand of cereal! 2 months later: Apple brand cereal outselling all other brands. This is the kind of news this is, is it really a surprise considering we are talking about Apple?

In other news, Apple pulls Apple Jacks off the shelves saying, we won't sell to many products made of cheap ingredients.

Eewww.. To me this is almost as ugly of a color as that old gold color Samsung used in the s5.. Just gross..

They probably only made 10000 of each in rose gold....why would you make a ton of rose gold phones not knowing if the demand was there. Me personally....I think the color is very ugly. I know way too many people that have the gold iphone 6 and they have a case on it. What's the point.

Yes because Samsung has popularized gold with the S6's and they wanna feel they are the same boat with us.

For the S6 the Gold one ended up being so popular. For the Edge Plus, it's only black and gold was available on release. Most TMOBILE I went to, to try to buy 2 more only had black ones. So yeah, they trying to use their phone to color compete..lol

The "Rose Gold" is definitely pink. I've seen Rose Gold...and it's not pink. Anyway, my upgrade hit last week & I've been pondering if I should get the 6S. I mean, I kinda want it haha, then get the i7 next year, but at the same time....I don't. Hmm, not sure if I should wait it out or what honestly..
