    It's definitely slippery on the back if your hands get sweaty or enough oil from your hands over a few hours of use build up.

    I'm new to the Samsung line but love it now even more with a thin case on it. I got a clear one to see the coral blue color but felt it to be too bulky. The other case I bought feels better but isn't clear. Either way, this is the best phone yet I've ever had!

    The s7 edge feels great to hold.

    I use the official Black Leather Samsung case that the s7 edge pushes into basically for grip.

    Great quality.

    I used the iPhone 6s Plus prior to the s7 edge so am used to the sizes of the phone.

    I wouldn't really want to go back to a smaller screen now.

    I've had all three. S6 edge, S7 and now the S7 edge. In addition I've had the S6 edge plus as well.

    Out of all these phones, the S7 and the S6 edge plus are the most comfortable to hold. S6 edge plus because of the sharp corners. While it maybe uncomfortable to hold for some, it provided extra grip. S7 is an extremely ergonomic phone. It sits naturally in the hand. But the rounded corners still didn't allow for much grip. I've used both of these phones without covers without any issue.

    S6 edge with its sides have been too sharp for me. Although using it without a case hasn't been much of an issue either.

    The S7 edge is a whole other story. I don't know what it is about this phone, but it's too slippery at the sides and I don't feel secure using this phone without a case at all. And probably won't ever do it. The side rails on the S6 edge and the S6 edge plus stuck out a little from the phone with a slight chamfer. However, with the S7 there's a continuity with the front and back curved edge with the metal rail. While this looks good, it doesn't feel very good. Especially with the accidental touches and grip while navigating the phone.

    So in terms of ergonomics I'd rate them as follows
    1. S7
    2. S6 edge plus
    3. S6 edge
    4. S7 edge

    However if it was me, I'd still go for the S7 edge. Because with a case, all this discussion goes to waste. I have a Spigen thin fit on my phone. It provides plenty of grip and a fair amount of sides to avoid accidental touches.

    So, my advice would be to get the S7 edge in coral blue or wait for the glossy black. And then put a case on it. It will be worth it.

    The S7 Edge feels like it is going to slip out of my hand. However I like the feel of my S7 edge with a case on it.

    The back is slippery but the width of the phone allows you to get a good grip on the phone. I've used it naked for a few days and it's probably the most comfortable phone I've used naked.

    I did order this case and I love how it feels, the phone feels more protected and its very grippy. It comes in 8 different colors.

    I think the Edge is comfortable to hold, but the accidental presses are a real thing. My keyboard is always freaking out from my thumb reaching over to the A, S, etc. keys. Didn't have that problem on my Note 7 though. Not sure if it was the palm rejection built in for the pen use or if the tighter radius on the edges of the Note. It was much easier to use though.

    I prefer not to use the full keyboard so theirs a decent space either on the left or right side of the keyboard depending on which side your want the keyboard to sit at.

    I like the S7 Edge and the way it handles. It does take some getting used to but it's like fine wine.....

    I agree,I almost never had an accidental touch with the Note 7 but am experiencing many with the G7e. I believe it was the tighter bevels on the Note 7.

    The Note7 definitely felt better in the hand. However, my Note7's weren't really sensitive enough. The replacement Note7 was a little better than the first, but I still find the S7E easier to type on in regards to keypresses. Since I use a case, I don't experience the accidental screen touches.
