'Fifty shades' of Space Gray

Space Gray shades

Space Gray is a color that every iPhone model is available in. That being said, it doesn't look the same for every device and that can be confusing. For example, the Space Gray on the Apple iPhone 6S is light gray. But on the newer iPhone models like the Apple iPhone Xs, the color is much darker and almost looks black. And yet the color of both devices has the same name.

The color of the bezel: black is easy on the eyes

Bezel color iPhone

The bezel surrounding the screen of the Apple iPhone comes in 2 colors: black and white. Do you like to watch movies an series or to play games on your device? Then it's easier on your eyes of the screen has a black bezel. This stands out less than a white bezel.

Sellability: popular colors are easier to sell

iPhone Xr black and yellow

The most popular colors are Space Gray and Black. Do you want to resell your (old) iPhone? In that case, selling an iPhone Space Gray or iPhone Black will be easier than a device in the color Yellow or Orange. That's why it's smart to decide beforehand if you plan on reselling the device later on.

Cases: now for something completely different

Even though you were completely convinced of the color of your iPhone when you bought it, it's possible that you get tired of the color after a while. Purchasing a new device in a different color is an unnecessarily expensive solution. That's why you can easily and relatively cheaply brighten up your Apple iPhone with a phone case. Aside from making your phone look nice, but it also protects your device from scratches and dirt.
