    Just curious is the Jet black more or less slippery than the other models?

    Aww. Reminds me of my iPhone 3G from four-fifths of a decade ago. What's old is new again!

    Haven't touched it myself, but I'm positive it will be less slippery, much as the glass itself is less slippery than the anodized aluminum finishes.

    I think it looks great. If it is less slippery, I'll go caseless...else clear case. I'm not worried about potential scratches. Unlike my wife, I tend NOT to drop it all the time ;)

    So far most are saying it's either about the same or less slippery.. It's a little subjective, but most are saying they can handle it fine w/o it feeling like it's going to pop out of the hand like the 6 and 6s..

    That said, it's probably going to be a fingerprint magnet.

    Hmm, I think I'll either get a standard iPhone 7 with this tasty finish or the regular black -- of course caseless. I prefer phones without a protective condom  :D

    I got confused when he said "$769 in the same size" I thought he meant same screen size even after he mentioned the screen. Next time maybe use a word like "same capacity".

    Everything looks better in promotional photos.

    Hands on .... as in a video of the new phone with hands on it. And a someone more or less reading a spec sheet. Not as in 'here's the new phone and this is what I think of it'. So if you can't read, this is a really useful video.

    Hands on is not promotional photo and no, it is not slippery at all. The finish is 100% different from 3G, so do not expect it to feel the same.
