    Mentioning troop movements... makes me think a chrome phone wouldn't be good for you... last thing you need is a phone that's gonna reflect light and shine and give away your position lol.
    Yes but can I apply my lipstick and fix my hair with it?

    Silver brings back memories of my last silver phone... Nextel Motorola i830... IMO one of my best looking phone ever had.
    I was thinking Coral Blue but now I'm leaning towards Silver. Black is sleep but seeing it at BB... makes the phone look plastic.
    Good point on the plastic - I hadn't put it into words, but that assessment is spot-on for me. That's in addition to the fact that I think Black is the most boring color of the batch for me - I just couldn't buy yet another one.

    I am looking forward to getting Silver and I agree that it's a totally personal decision - there's no one "best".

    I preordered silver but canceled and changed to black because after seeing all the videos the fingerprints were literally the worst I've seen on any phone ever

    Not gonna use a case? If I get a Note 7 it would be a shame to cover it up... but a $800 phone... I'd be concerned of an accidental drop ruining it.

    I dropped my S7E in horrifying fashion within the first 4 hours of it being unboxed. I immediately disconnected it, put my Nexus back on my line and the next day went and got a case for it.

    I was a fool to think I could live without protection. //sniffle

    I think we watched the same review. I regret not getting black. Had no idea the silver was THAT shiny. Will probably exchange for the black within the week.

    The silver isn't mirror shiny and I've used my S7Edge silver outside, in the sun, taking pictures, and never had an issue with it reflecting in my eyes. It's shiny, yes, but not in the way that you think.

    After looking at many videos of the 3 colors, I decide to go to Best Buy and see them in person.

    In person, I thought the black looked less impressive, more ordinary and like plastic. The color of the blue seemed too pastel, too bright.

    The silver looked even better in person, by far the most unique and Elegant. Shiny, but not a mirror effect. Sleek and cool.
    Although, it seemed to show the most fingerprints. This will probably be reduced by screen protectors.

    That's what I thought when I saw the black... Plastic

    Silver is sharp; looks so classy. No color is bad, but Silver is the one I gravitated to when I saw them in person. I've always rocked white, so this is the natural choice for me as well.

    I was worried, in the sun, when trying to take a photo, it might shine in my eyes.

    That will only happen if the sun is directly behind you as you take the photo. Even then, the angle would have to be perfect and that would be difficult to achieve.

    Oh ok cool. I was gonna say, if it was Best Buy and they had so extras in stock on release day they might would have let you switch it out.

    I have silver s7 edge and love the color and the note 7 silver looked great at best buy. I just opted for the blue corral because I need a break from gold and silver phones lolm

    Amen & pass the peas! not even sure WHY they call it silver. It should be called "Chrome" because THAT is as shiny as it is even MORE shinier than that even (if that is even possible)......oh wait, maybe because that name is temporarily in use by some "fly by night" browser....lol

    but seriously, i, after playing with both at Best Buy today, 100% agree, the black while on the S7 Edge is a "beautiful Piano Black gloss" on the Note 7 for some reason when i picked it up that was my FIRST thought... Feels like plastic... The "chrome" version of Note 7 didn't feel like that AT ALL, but those fingerprints were unbelievable... Can't Sammy make a matte/gloss phone finish?! They can apparently do "everything else!"

    I think I'll be fine, but that silver...I'm almost willing to pay the restocking fee. But I think I would void my free gift.

    I was torn between the black and silver until I saw them in person at BB. I know a lot of people love the black, but I also thought it looked like plastic. I am worried about the fingerprints w/ the silver, but I currently have the gold platinum s6 Edge+, and I have a clear case on it, and it seems fine. I'm constantly wiping fingerprints off the screen, but that's a given no matter what color. ;-)

    I'm with other people that thought the silver was too shiny. I took a look at Black and Silver at BB (didn't have Blue out to look at), and I thought the silver was overly shiny, basically like carrying a mirror. I like the understated look of the black, and while it will still show fingerprints and stuff, I think it won't show them quite as badly as silver. Obviously it's up to personal preference, so the best would be if you could look at them in person, but the Silver was so shiny when I was looking at it, I could see it being a problem on a sunny day outside. Even just the little color that is visible on the front on the top and bottom, if the sun was at the correct angle, it could create some pretty nasty reflections. Even looking at it at BB, I caught a few bad reflections off the overhead lights, nothing that would make it unusable or anything, but too shiny for my tastes.

    I guess in the end, it's all about preference. I love my silver s7edge and would not have gone with any other color. To each their own. I never had any problems with the silver in direct sunlight at all.

    I've seen the black. Didn't preorder, so plan on comparing the colors, ATT has Friday.
    I have two spigen cases coming tomorrow, UPS.
    One is red wallet case and one is clear back with silver sides, I think. Lol.
    So will have them to see how they look with each.
    My phone now is white. Always have a case on it, so it looks as good as new. So the note 7 also will have a case. So back being mirror shiny won't matter, maybe.😉

    Until the sun hits the two front bars perfectly and you veer into oncoming traffic. Hehe. Safe travels, silver is the best but I'm gonna stick with blue for now.

    Another reason, not to be on my phone while driving. 😉
    I have hands free phone on my car, also reads my text messages. So really no need to look at phone while driving. ☺
