iPhone 7 poll: would you go for Black or Jet Black?
posted by Paul K. / Sep 12, 2016, 8:13 AM
What's the difference? Well, the regular Black is the good old matte finish that you can see and feel on other models just... you know – blacked out. This includes the Apple logo and antenna bands in the back — it's all stealthed out and, we have to say, pretty cool-looking.
The Jet Black edition is just as stealthy when it comes to the choice of colors, but it comes in a shiny, glossy finish. This means more fingerprints and more scratches over time — the latter has even been confirmed by Apple, who recommends using a case with the Jet Black iPhone 7. Still, it is, apparently, the more “premium” finish, as Cupertinians have decided not to release it in a base storage version. The iPhone 7 in Jet Black will only be available in 128 GB and 256 GB variants, while the regular Black spans the full range of 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB.
But let's take storage tiers and price out of the equation. If you were to buy any version of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus right now, which black would you go for?
iPhone 7: Black or Jet Black?
Regular Black all the way!
The glossy Jet Black is my thing!
I still prefer Gold / Rose Gold / Silver

actually there's one it's on the upper right corner of your browser (or upper left if you are using mac) where close button resides. --- not a fanboy, but if you happened to hate apple why visit an article that is specifically for apple, then start hating?

It's perfectly possible to show your preference for something you don't plan on interacting with. e.g. "Would you prefer this Ferrari in red or yellow?" Conversely, "would you prefer to eat this poop shaken or stirred?"

Dick. Plenty of non-iPhone articles for you to click on. In-case you hadn't noticed Apple have just launched a new iPhone so that's the second biggest phone story at the moment* *the biggest being exploding Note 7's - but then you probably want to pretend that story isn't happening?

They did the same thing for when Samsung introduced the new Blue Coral color. Stop trying to assume there is bias here. Especially considering Michael H. wrote a pretty scathing review of Apple's press conference:
In my 5 years of visiting this site, I have seen a lot of improvement. I have always called them out when I thought they were being biased or unfair. However, that also means I have to stick up for them when I see that they have done a fair job as well.

Well said Doctor Phil. Michael Healer has done a great article. But it is not easy to make everyone happy. There were some users who were cursing him even after such a greate review of that press conference. I think authors of PA doesn't take such criticism seriously.

Just a month ago it was Pokemon Arena. What's your point? Articles are written when something worth talking about occurs in the industry. And when nothing happens, there's nothing wrong with an opinion poll to get some dialog going amongst readers.

I would love a green phone, especially one that looks like this Galaxy S7 knock-off. https://fscl01.fonpit.de/userf

Here's what I want: Gold but with a black front. I just can't stand phones with white fronts, they're hideous, however I do like the gold color.

I agree with white faces - they need to give an option of a blackface for all their finishes.
