    Of All The Things Y'all Have Done That Has Disappointed Me......Not including the "white" color in the selection of your, "next best thing" has got to be what has disappointed me the MOST... OR, at the VERY least, not putting a finish on the other colors that mask or reduce slime…Other Manufacturers manage to do it ALL THE TIME, why can’t YOU?!

    And trust me, i have had my share of Samsung devices only to find out y’all snuck this in or snuck that out, when "no one was looking"… (a tactic y’all wisely don’t do with your “flagship products” due to the incredible scrutiny they receive)

    And even tho it is nearly IMPOSSBLE to “please everyone” trust me when I say, the disappointments with your products have been many, from,”watered down supposed flagships” to “low powered all in one computers” to upgrades that never come, to “EXPENSIVE all hype, low picture quality Galaxy Cameras (Galaxy Camera I AND II I might add)…

    Yes, it has DEFINITELY been a love-hate relationship I have had with y’all….BUT with the VAST improvements you have brought to y’all’s latest lineup from improving Touch Wiz to removing stutter & lag to improved battery, and the other countless improvements y’all have made, and all the lessons you have learned, I am truly disappointed in y’all’s glaring omission of the “white color” and I KNOW I am not the only one… I read so many posts where ppl opt for the silver because white is "not available", but to me, the silver is the SAME fingerprint mess within minutes as the other 2 colors...


    It isn't only because i have been a "white electronics gadget fan" since way back in the 70's (yesssss, i am talkin' wayyyyy back : ) with my WHITE SWATCH WATCH, but since you have never figured out HOW to put a finish on your devices that defy fingerprints, your BEAUTIFUL phones in any other color look like hell within minutes of handling them....

    Putting a case on that phone isn’t an option since i am 100% fan of "cases-LESS phones with ZERO screen protection”, and with the durability of phones these days, more & more ppl are opting to use their phones, “unprotected”…

    Is it really possible y’all’s design team just continually can IGNORE the finish of y’all’s phones??!! It is the ONE thing (in my opinion) that impedes, no wait, “crushes” the final product by having it go from “a sleek, sexy, beautiful device you’re proud to own within seconds of handling to a “fingerprint, smudged greasy laden object you’re almost embarrassed for someone to see”….

    I know A LOT of ppl could care less or even "hated" on the white color, but since there are still gazillions of us that STILL prefer the white color, I REALLY hope y’all reconsider for future….

    If you don't offer white color or improved "finish" in Note 6, it will be the first Note i don't buy...

    Sorry Bossy Texas Chick but it looks as though your U.S. carrier does not offer you the choice of the Samsung Galaxy S7 in white on their model. Not really Samsung's fault I would have thought. Perhaps you should take this up with your particular carrier instead or purchase an unbranded Global version with stock, unbloated, Samsung firmware and the octa core Exynos processor, if you are on a GSM compatible network.

    Here are all four Galaxy S7 and S7 edge colors

    sorry but i have searched far & wide, cannot, and i repeat CANNOT find a white version to import... There is ONE S7 Duos still available on nevermsrp's Ebay site, but that removes the sd card option... And yes, you can "hack/modify" the SIM tray, but if you've ever broken a SIM pin, you'd know that's not really an option...

    And even IF it were available in Europe and NOT in USA, that's just crazy too, cuz with our fried chicken, french fries & ribs, we need a finish that doesn't retain "grease" more than anywhere in the world!" lol

    I don't follow... The s7 duos can use a single sim plus micro SD or dual sim. This is by design.

    You can modify it to support dual sim plus microSD, which can cause problems, but that is a separate issue, since no usa model supports dual sim anyway...

    half of those links are out of stock for white or don't ship to USA... but i am sorry, i meant specifically the S7 Edge.. To me, THAT one is the real "killer phone of the 2".. The S7, while nice, without the bigger scren or curved edges just leaves me "flat" (Even IF it were available in WHITE : )

    I posted here about the lack of a shimmery white S7 before the phone even dropped! In fact, I was holding out hope that Verizon would surprise us and come out with one. I didn't want a "premium" material S5. Glass is slippery. Glass might be "premium" for some things. To me, it ain't too premium when you can't hold the silly thing in your had because it's so slippery. I know a lot of people didn't have any love for the plastic shimmery back of the S5, but I loved it! White glass would be better at hiding fingerprints than gold or black but it's still inferior for practical reasons.
    BossyTexasChick, you had me until the ill-fated "sexy" term Just baffles the mind that inanimate objects such as a phone are labled "sexy". Sleek, refined maybe but sexy??

    I had a Shimmery white S5 and I have white Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. The back of that is plastic made to look like bound leather. It shows no fingerprints and has a grip to it.

    So lets recap...the "non"premium plastic with a pindot pattern in a non glossy shimmery texture shows no fingerprints and offers some grip...win-win. The "non" premium plastic leather bound non glossy back of the Galaxy Note 10.1 also no fingerprints and offers some texture for grip...win-win

    S7 generation of phones are made of "premium" glass. They are infamous for flying out of people's hands (mind included) and are fingerprint magnets...in my book that's a lose-lose!

    I have two cases. A Spigen Ultra Hybrid with a glossy clear back (again, fingerprints) and a crystal rose bumper. My fav. And a Caseology matte gold edge with a textured plastic navy colored back. NICE case just not feminine enough. It will look good this fall and winter with darker clothes and handbags

    Oh, and I called Verizon a few weeks ago to ask about the possibility of a white S7. They said that was up to Samsung. I called Samsung (knowing I wouldn't get to anyone that gave a rip about what color phones they produce so I just asked that it get sent to the appropriate dept for consideration.

    And just to clarify, yes, there might be a way to obtain a white S7 Edge if i wanted to "take my chances with Sellers that import, search the ends of the Earth & not to mention pay upwards of 900.00$$ for a phone that for all accounts i should be ale to get locally for 700 bucks if Samsung didn't "pull that color" from North America distribution...

    As hard as Samsung has tried to "get it right", (and truly, for the MOST part, this time has SUCCEEDED) wouldn't it be just as simple to incorporate a finish that holds up to their precious offering being handled, "more than ONCE" without needing a complete wipe down?


    Maybe it doesn't matter to the avg person, but truthfully, as much as i love white, when i saw their "black" actually was going to be "true laquer Piano black" i was drooling... and then the tech world handled it a few times and i was like "oh, not NO but Hellll no!"

    Like I said in an earlier post BOSSY TEXAS CHICK, it is not Samsung's fault that your U.S. carrier did not choose to offer the white models of the S7 and S7 Edge on their carrier minority variants.

    You should be really addressing your concern to whichever U.S. carrier you are with. They are the ones calling the shots on their own carrier models, both on hardware, carrier branded firmware and not to mention locked bootloaders.

    As to the seeming lack of availability of both the S7/Edge white models, that would be down to their popularity in the rest of the free world.

    Yah, it kinda IS Sammy's fault.. The lack of availibility on white model is evident EVERYWHERE...

    Check your links, there isn't a white model to be had almost anywhere... Did find one in Germany, but i'm not trying to pay upwards of 1000 bucks for this phone...

    And that STILL doesn't address the Design Dept's "poor finish" on the current models...They DO make "matte glass, frosted glass, etc...They could just as easily coat it..."

    Bootloader issue would not be an issue with the Design Dept, which my letter was addressed to. And quite frankly, with HOW good their phones have gotten, i haven't felt the need to root since Note 4....

    And as for the video you supplied (and believe me, i've watched them ALL : ) i'm not "jonesing" too bad for the white model, as i was able to score a brand new white S6 Edge Plus a few weeks ago for under $600.00 and its upgraded to Official Mashmallow & its pret-ty dang amazing in its own right!

    Open Letter to Samsung's Design Dept (why is there no white color?)-edge-plus.jpg


    But why i felt so compelled to write my letter is BECAUSE of EXACTLY how much i am loving the S6 Plus, and am fearful the "white phone is gone and the gold color (shudder) is here to stay...." : (

    That's because the white model is so popular and you did not pre-order one. Even as we speak, I am sure the Samsung production lines are churning out even more white models to meet the increased demand worldwide.

    So, you do accept that there are indeed white S7 and S7 Edge models produced by Samsung... just that the U.S. carriers do not offer them for their models.

    I am sure that if you are a little bit patient, you can get an S7 Edge in white on the Global model, G935F.

    In the meantime, you could change the thread title to, say, "Open letter to [insert your carrier's name], why do you not offer the white S7 Edge"

    I personally think the S7 improved the proportions, and other important details, where the S6 horribly missed in my opinion, it sucks that color options are restricted or delayed in certain regions (issue in general with flagships these days, not just SAMSUNG).

    Love the thicker design all around, at last Samsung gets the aluminum bezel right.

    BTC, I thought I pretty well addressed your comments. Maybe you missed my post. I've been lamenting no white S7s in the states (on this website) since before the phone shipped. And I felt the exact same way about the gold color...eww! However, since no white phone was rumored to become available any time soon (or EVER), I went with the gold and paired it with a clear backed, Crystal Rose Spigen Hybrid bumper case. Just a hint of rose around the edges of the phone. Understand and elegant.

    H Monica!

    I DID see your post, but was it got buried among the onslaught of “yes they do offer white and phone is fine AS IS” replies….lol

    I also actually OWNED the “gold” version of the Galaxy Alpha, but it was a much softer & lighter brushed metal gold, zero fingerprints & very “understated” which is what I think you meant when you put “understand” & elegant" (dang that auto correct

    It just boggles my mind that given Sammy’s latest iterations with their “mirror-like finishes that more people aren’t rebuking their offerings. I honestly feel like its the equivelant to investing in “a beautiful brand new sports car that looks beautiful for ONLY one minute" & then having it appear like you drove thru the mud within seconds after purchasing it, with the cycle repeating itself hundreds of times a day…

    With ALL the efforts Samsung has made to BRING IT, its hard to believe they are so "UNinspired in that one area to get that ONE aspect of the design of their products perfected"….And THEN, to top it off, they remove the ONE color they offered that at the very least tends to “conceal, reduce & almost hide that design flaw”

    Luckily, we’ve advanced to the point where there are sooooo many nice phones out there at great prices, if Sammy doesn’t bring it with the Note 6, I’ll more than likely go to Huawei… I never used that dang S Pen anyway!

    As pointed about above, I think that carriers to a degree are influencing color options, particularly at launch. I recall that my wife wanted the white 64GB Note 5, but was not available on Verizon last fall. The Note 4 was available in white from Verizon at launch.

    Interesting to see the various color options offered from Samsung and Verizon for the same phone.

    Samsung shows black and white color options in 32/64GB model for Verizon. When I go to find the online seller from the Samsung page, that goes to Verizon's site, where it only shows black and gold versions (see below).

    Agreed. Carriers can definitely pick what they want / don't want to sell. They don't owe anything to Samsung in regards to specific colors.

    If anything other places get all the cooler colors. When the S6 came out with all those options I instantly told my friends to not get all hyped up .. because only the usual would come to the U.S. -- and that is what happened.
