If you"re on the fence about which finish to get, here"s what you need to consider!

Distraction dangers


The (matte) black & jet blaông chồng iPhones 7 have sầu a blachồng faceplate. That means when the display is off, dark, or filled with full-screen nội dung lượt thích videos or games, the border fades away & you can immerse yourself in what you"re doing. TV sets almost always have blaông chồng bezels for a reason. It makes the frame easy to lớn ignore.

The silver, gold, rose gold, và (Product) RED iPhones have sầu Trắng faceplates. That means when the display is lit up, especially for the standard iOS interfaces và for reading on the web, in ebooks, or in messaging apps, there"s no dark border framing everything you do. It"s why books are almost always uniformly light or trắng.

I"ve sầu had iPhones of every color, used each for at least a year, and never found any of the faceplates to lớn be distracting or distasteful. Everyone is different, though.

If you watch a lot of videos or play a lot of games, the (matte) blaông xã or jet black iPhone might make things more immersive for you.If you read a lot of text or use a lot of standard apps, the silver, gold, or rose gold iPhone may make the pages feel broader và more expansive sầu.

Discoloration doubts


One thing that shouldn"t worry anyone anymore is the idea that the trắng faceplate on the silver, gold, rose gold, or (Product) RED iPhone could get stained or otherwise discolored.

We"ve sầu all learned to lớn be deeply anxious when we wear trắng clothes or have sầu White furniture or carpets for that very reason. Apple, though, took an extra six months lớn ship the Trắng iPhone 4 và in that time the company nailed it.

My iPhone 4 still looks as clean & crisp as the day I bought it in 2011, & all the subsequent iPhones I"ve bought with White faceplates have sầu stayed every bit as bright.

Likewise the backs. All the space grays, silvers, golds, và the most recent rose gold have sầu all kept their colors exactly.

If you"re worried about an iPhone with a trắng faceplate staining or discoloring, or the metallic finishes fading, stop. It"ll be fine.

Withstanding wear


iPhones have sầu aluminum bodies with anodized finishes. Apple"s system is tougher than standard anodization but isn"t gloppy looking lượt thích some of the ultra-tough treatments. They are metal, though, & so can be scratched.

On the silver iPhones, small scratches have less contrast, which makes them harder lớn see, depending on the lighting. Gold và rose gold iPhones are somewhere in the middle. (Matte) blaông chồng iPhones have a higher contrast, so scratches are a bit more noticeable. Jet black? Shiny finishes scuff easily.

Some people won"t care. To them, aging is part of what makes great objects great, lượt thích an old leather bag, favorite t-shirt, or the Millennium Falnhỏ. Others don"t ever want khổng lồ see any wear.

If you hate the look of scratches, silver iPhones are your best bet.If you lượt thích one of the other colors more, you can learn lớn love the wear or get a protective sầu case.

Sliông chồng vs. stick


The (matte) black, silver, gold, rose gold, & (Product) RED iPhone 7 all have anodized aluminum finishes, same as the iPhone 6s and previous years, going all the way back lớn the iPhone 5. So, if you"ve sầu used a previous generation iPhone, you know how they feel. iPhone 6s was slightly less slippery than iPhone 6, and iPhone 7 is slightly less slippery again, but if you"re worried you may drop it, you"ll want to lớn get a case regardless of the color.

Except for the jet blaông chồng iPhone 7. You"ll still want lớn get a case khổng lồ avoid scuffs, but the finish is so polished it"s actually far less slippery than any other metal iPhone. It"s almost... sticky.

If you don"t have sầu a problem with metal phones, get any color or get a case và you"ll be fine.If you want an iPhone that isn"t as slippery, get the jet blachồng iPhone 7 — though you"ll likely still want a case.
