Results: what color do you prefer on the face of a red smartphone?
So, earlier this year, Apple introduced the Product Red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus — beautiful red handsets with a silver Apple logo and... a white front. This isn't the first time we see a blood-red phone with a white face — last time, it was the Flame Red Meizu Pro 6, which is, admittedly, much less-known than Apple's flagship.

In any case, when both phones were announced, there was an overwhelming reaction of “but why the white face?”, with users insisting that a handset with a screaming red back would look much sleeker if its face was black. Not a terrible notion, we thought, but the manufacturers probably know what they are doing... right?

We thought we'd ask you — in what face combo would a red phone look best to you? Here's how the votes tallied up!

Black but I always use a case. Red would be next but I might get tired of it. Black is always the safest choice.
