    It's not that reflective, I've been using our demo at work and they did a good job keeping the silver to a minimum. The gold is more reflective.
    Have you used it outdoors, in bright sunlight? If so, you didn't notice any issues with glare off the bezels?

    Thanks.

    Now that I have mine in front of me, I really like the Silver color. It's actually not overly shiny

    I thought the Silver was more reflective, and I've had mostly black phones in the past. Decided to go with the Gold. Plus, since it seems to be the least popular color this time around, it should be easier to get my hands on. the silver on verizon is backordered.

    Got the silver yesterday. Of course it's a matter of personal taste but I like it a lot.

    Has anyone received the Silver and then wished they had gotten the Black?

    I went to BB to check them out. IMO, they all looked good. Even the gold was nice. Not like the pink gold Apple has. My 2 favorites were silver and black. Unfortunately, with Verizon, the silver was back ordered until March 31st. So I got the black. I have no patience.

    I was going to buy the black, until a co-worker showed me his silver one, I immediately fell in love with it and ordered the silver. Absolutely gorgeous phone!

    Grass is always greener on the other side, I would like black but I'm pretty sure if I had got the black I would have wanted silver

    Play with them in store... everyone has different impression. I first saw the 7edge and thought I was playing with the silver... turned out to be gold as the gold was much more muted than I expected. I was originally going Silver but the understated Gold won out.

    I live in sunny California. I thought the silver was a bit too shiny in the store. I have the white Note 5 and haven't had any problems with glare or reflections, but the silver is basically a mirror.

    So I went with black. It's more of a satin than a gloss black. I think it looks really awesome.

    Who wouldn't want a silver reflective phone?!! I would rather have a very shiny phone that stands out than a boring black not so standing out phone. I think a shiny reflective phone would definently be noticeable.

    it's not as shiny as i was worried it would be, it sure reflects sunlight if it hits it, but the finish isn't as mirrored as people made it out to be.

    i'm using the thin samsung case as well, which has a clear but patterned back which seems to help a bit too.

    so yes, it's shiny, but it's not a polished mirror finish, which personally i would have found obnoxious.

    All the colors stand out though. The black is so sleek.

    I love the silver out of all the colors. The black was a close second though.

    Same here. I went to Verizon to look at the Silver, and I wound up ordering the Gold.

    Gold is reflective as hell. Looks silver chrome if photo'd with a flash.
    Staring at my gold phone right now I can safely say that it's no more reflective than the screen itself.

    Update: Ended up getting the silver s7 edge, and not too reflective or shiny at all.

    Sounds good. I just remember taking one shot in a Samsung store that seemed like it was silver and highly reflective. (they only had gold and black iirc).
    In another shot though the gold seemed solid, looking back.

    BTW: I haven't bought one yet. Any issues with screen edge typing difficulty / oversensitivity? That's been bothering me a little.

    It is oversensitive, yes. I am getting used to it but still backspace entire lines of text accidentally which is a little annoying. I don't even have to touch the screen. Even hovering over it still will register a key press. Crazy!

    I got mine in silver and I am glad I did. It looks absolutely beautiful. My previous s5 was white and before that I had a black iPhone 5 so the silver is a change but a good one

    I was a little worried about the silver, but ordered it anyway and love it. The reflections haven't bothered me so far. I did put a clear TPU case on it, but the silver back still shows through. As does the front, obviously.

    How is the silver phone treating you after one month of use? Any problem of reflection/shine outdoors or distraction while watching videos? I am trying to decide on whether to get the black or silver one. I saw the phones in the store, really loved the silver color, but trying to get an idea from people who are already using it.
