    Yes, it is less black and more gray. I guess they killed the black one because it scratches too easily and hopefully the gray is more resistant.

  • Yes, it is. It's not as dark as the black.

  • Yes. The 5s is literally a gray metallic color vs the iPhone 5 that was black. The front of both phones are almost identical, but the back of the 5s has a more two-tone appearance, using the same black glass top and bottom curve colours, but the metal main back piece is gray.

  • Yes, the aluminum on the 5 was a darker tone, the aluminum on the 5s is a lighter tone.
