Are we over fully black phones now?

44

So, when Apple announced two new colors for the iPhone 7 last year, which were “matte black” and “shiny black”, it made for a good couple of jokes, right? But hey, the iPhone is the iPhone and before we knew it, black was cool again. Samsung raced to launch a “limited edition” Galaxy S7 edge in Pearl Black so that it can have a black phone before the Galaxy S8 launches, OnePlus got super-inspired and introduced a Midnight Black edition of the 3T, with the color moving on to the OnePlus 5 now... and a lot of the new models in 2017 have been quite blacked out.

Hey, matte black on metal looks awesome, sure. But there is such a thing of overexposure, even for the cool stuff. Are you feeling a bit fatigued by the blacky black on black models?

Are we over black phones now?

Nope! More black on black, please!
