iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are undeniably the most wanted iPhones right now. Released last year, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are Apple’s best iPhone ever.
Apple added two new colour options to the new iPhone line up in 2016. The colours are the Matte Black, which replaced the space grey colour introduced in 2015. The second new colour is Jet Black, and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before on a metal smartphone.
The metal finish is treated in a special way, resulting in a glossy mirror finish that looks gorgeous when you take it out of the box. But does that glossy finish still look as gorgeous a few months later? You’ll find out.
Jet Black finish on Apple’s new iPhones is prone to scratching. In addition to that, users quickly discovered that the glossy finish was also a magnet for grease and grime. The best solution to this is get your Jet Black iPhone a case to protect it (which is not a good idea to many Jet Black iPhone users).
But people asked – why buy an iPhone with the hot new Jet Black finish and then cover it up with a case? Well, now it’s time to see how the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus looks like after spending three months in a user’s hands (and pockets) without any protective case.
The photo above is one of several images posted by Reddit user “robhue” showing what his Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus case looks like. It’s not pretty. Even with the poor lighting in the photos, you can clearly see scratches and swirling all over the back of the phone, though they’re much more apparent at some angles than they are at others.
