The new renders - revealed by @evleaks - show three color variants of the Galaxy S7 edge (front and rear sides): black, silver, and gold. As mentioned plenty of times before, the S7 edge looks a lot like last year's Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, though there are some subtle changes, including the fact that the new smartphone seems to have a more rounded back.
Just like the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S7 edge could be released around the world on March 11. Prices for the S7 edge might start at $799 - $100 higher than prices for the regular S7. It's said that the Galaxy S7 series will bring plenty of improvements over the S6 family, including dust- and water-resistance, microSD card support, superior cameras, and larger batteries (3000 mAh for the S7, and 3600 mAh for the S7 edge). To find out more about Samsung's next flagship smartphones, check out our Galaxy S7 rumor review. And let us know which Galaxy S7 edge color variant you like best, okay?
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3600 mAh(36h 3G talk time)

Not fan of gold color, too flash in my opinion. I wish there is a gunmetal option (which probably wouldn't happen).

I am going to primarily be talking about Apple and Samsung because Apple are the biggest pushers of Aluminium phones and Samsung seem to cop the most from people about their plastic ones. I do mention HTC, LG, and Sony; and Apple's name could easily be replaced with HTC and Samsung's with LG/Sony/Motorola but the post would have less contrast. Following the iPhone 6 Plus bendgate stuff, and the subsequent testing of a lot of other mobile devices on the market, there is still such a huge emphasis on how a device "feels in your hand", and the "premium materials" a device uses. Every single review, without exception, that compares a device using an aluminium chassis/case (iPhone, HTC) with one using a plastic chassis/case (Samsung, Nokia, LG) will always give "build quality" to the aluminium phone. Usually citing that the aluminium feels more premium in your hand. What is a premium material? What defines a premium material? is it an expensive material? or a material that is rare? a material of high quality? If it is any of those 3 things (price, rarity, quality) or a mixture of those 3 things, why is thin aluminium considered a premium material?

What would you have them replace it with without sacrificing the premium look/feel, nor benefits of wireless charging and durability; which is pretty great according drop tests (bit.ly/1KVu465)? I'd like magnesium casing like on my OnePlus One if it doesn't interfere with wireless charging...

The Oneplus One doesn't have any Magnesium you can see or feel. That border around the sides is plastic, the Magnesium is the inner chassis, which is no big deal, the S3, S4 and S5 all had that and they didn't mislead people with it. They didn't mention it.

None lol I am done with Samsung phones as long as we have a glass back. Traded my Note 5 for the HTC m9 plus Supreme Camera 4 days ago, and it was horrible. So I ended up trading it for the A9, and I am loving it

Oh wow! I had no idea you made a trade. As long as it's working for you my dude, that's all that matters. I still have both, but I'm on the fence this year, due to a goal I'm working on, may not purchase a phone this year. Stay tuned ;)
