If you live in the United States, Samsung is going to give you only two Galaxy S7 color options. The Korean company is offering its flagship smartphone in three colors – gold platinum, black onyx, and white pearl. But US customers will not get their hands on the white pearl model. Besides black onyx and gold platinum, the Galaxy S7 Edge has got an exclusive titanium silver color option.
Things to consider while choosing the Galaxy S7 color
Wondering which Galaxy S7 color you should buy? It depends on a variety of factors including personal preference. Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are on display in Best Buy stores. Starting February 26, the phones will also be available on display at all the major US carriers. You can try all the color options before making a final decision. Samsung is offering a free Gear VR headset and many virtual reality games if you pre-order the new phones.
The first thing to consider is how distracting the color around the display is. This time the, black onyx color is actually black, unlike the Galaxy S6 which had a black color that looked like blue. Black color around the display does not distract you, and it makes it easier for you to see the LED notification light. The gold platinum is undoubtedly the flashiest color available. It is beautiful, but slightly distracting.
Another important factor is how visible the fingerprints are. Due to the glass and metal design of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, fingerprints are inevitable. But black color is somewhat of a fingerprint magnet. According to GottaBeMobile, the titanium silver of S7 Edge is best at masking fingerprints. Unfortunately, the white model is not available in the US. It would have been the best choice.
Galaxy S7 Edge’s titanium silver is one of a kind
You do not have to worry about scratches and discoloration with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Samsung has placed colors under a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 panel, so they are not going to fade or look weathered. You may go for black onyx Galaxy S7 if you like watching a lot of movies and videos on your phone because it is least distracting.
Gold platinum is the color that stands out. It gives you an elegant, eye-catching look. Go for the titanium silver Galaxy S7 Edge if you want a unique color that is only offered on the S7 Edge. Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will go on sale in the United States and about 60 other countries on March 11.
