Do you like the jet black iPhone 7? Apple says it "may show fine micro-abrasions" with time

Apparently being harder to make, the jet black color will be available only on the 128 GB and 256 GB versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The color certainly has its appeal, but, before rushing out to order a jet black iPhone 7, you should know this: Apple says that "its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use", despite the fact that "its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products." The company suggests users to buy a case for their jet black iPhone 7 - if they're concerned about these potential micro scratches.
Since we've yet to see a jet black iPhone 7 in the flesh, we don't know just how prone to scratches this color may be, though we'll probably find out soon after the new Apple phones hit the market (September 16). Here's hoping we won't be witnessing a #scratchgate or something like that.

Just put a glass screen protector front and back like I do on my 6s plus. That way I don't need a case just a thin bumper. That color gave me a boner!!

Micro abrasions are found on all types of phones with smooth or glossy surfaces so it's to be expected. If I had the GS 7 Edge or Note 7 I would do the same thing as they both have glass backs.

It is a shame that the Stereo Speakers and Waterproofing on this will overshadow all previous stereo speakers/waterproofing by Android devices.

Stereo speakers on a phone are kinda pointless as your ears won't easily distinguish the difference from two so closely placed sound sources. On a tablet that's more believable.

Don't get it, they all intent to make the "most beautyful" phone in the world, just for it to end up caged in a case... I prefer the metal/plastic in Motorola or brushed metal of HTC, no need for a case, you can feel the phone, than these phones too prone to scratch that you never really see your phone.
