Which Galaxy S8 color version would you pick?

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are finally official, and even up for preorder, and they look every bit as groundbreaking in terms of design as we got accustomed to from the leaks that kept pouring on fast and furious, Seoul Drift edition, in the last month or so. Available in five colors including Midnight Black, the all-new Orchid Gray, Coral Blue, Arctic Silver, and Maple Gold, the Galaxy S8's metal frames balance nicely with the glass chassis, "creating a seamless color transition that brings together art and technology to complete the phone’s concept of oneness," claims Samsung. 

Marketing clamor aside, we wanted to ask you which version of the Galaxy S8 chassis hues is your favorite, and which one will you be getting, provided that you are in the market for a Galaxy S8 or an S8+. Granted, at launch in both the US and Europe, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be available in only three of those colors - Orchid Gray, Midnight Black and Arctic Silver - but the others should be later on, so which one would you pick if you had the whole color palette in front of you.

And NO " Micro abrasions" on this version of Black unlike some kids toys.

Black is the best color for the bezelless GS8 design tbh. Infact, Can anyone even choose anything other than black? The black looks downright from the future and impossibly jaw dropping while the rest of the other colors just looks tacky and distasteful imo. Its probably the best looking phone of all time and by some distance even (in black). That being said, i won't be getting the GS8... I'm waiting for the Note 8!!!!

Best looking phone while the screen is off is Honor Magic.

IMO no color looks great in camera not sure about real world. I only liked black one. But back of S8 is boring. Front that freaking beautiful.

i agree, i really liked the S7E in gold last year but dont like the new 2 tone idea of a black front and different colour back so black is a nice slick colour for me :-)

I like black because it has also black frame. Other variants have colored only back side and from the front view can be seen silver frame. So it is three different colors on the body. Black is minimalism and awesome! :)

Gonna give credit for Samsung this time, for not offering the solid white. Love every colors, except white!!

Why there are no white? Many people like the white color and look very stylish. I personally like mostly the darker colors but this is strange from market perspective.

personally i think white as a design trend is only still kept alive by apple, its not a popular colour any more, well in the uk at least from what i have seen, people are choosing different colours with their phones to stand out a bit and be different from other makers, i also dont think a white s8+ would even look that good but thats a personal choice i guess

Might go with Orchid Gray. It looks interesting to me.

Went with the Orchid Gray... I wanted the Coral Blue but it wasn't available... It's something about the Orchid that just makes it interesting...

i WANTED the blue, but since they dont have that as a US color for some reason, I went with the arctic silver for the S8+

I'm highly confused between coral blue and midnight black.

I was going to get black but I went with the Arctic Silver since i got it for $600 from Samsung yesterday. Once I put my black case on it, it wont matter anyways since the front is all black. That being said having seen all three colors at Best Buy yesterday I'd rank them Black, Orchid Gray and Silver as my favorites. It is a beautiful phone regardless of what color you get, keep in mind that the black is definitely a fingerprint magnet.

F#ck, i want the orchid gray, but i don't think that color will come to Indonesia on the first wave. We usually get the common color like black, silver, and gold.

What the hell is on person's mind when he, in 2017, puts black bezel on a phone? OK, I get it on the black versions, but on all of the rest? Making a screen less endless? Appearing smaller? Uglier? Samsung design is getting uglier and uglier.

They had to go with all black fronts to cover up the huge array of technologically advanced sensors in the front.

i was wondering why they went that way, but thanks for a logical and good response, makes perfect sense, otherwise the top of the front would look very busy with all them sensors/camera etc. i bought the black version for the aesthetics reason alone.

I picked coral blue as my first choice. Black would not only be my LAST choice, I wouldn't even buy this phone if it was only available in black - which is a boring, dull color, really no color at all.

None because it still has the same camera as the GS7. Although the Orchard Gray is more unique so that gets points.

it doesn't have the same camera as the GS7, it has a new sony sensor IMX333 or new isocell unit Vs IMX 260 in S7, but keeps the SAME MP count :-) time and testing will tell how much better the new camera is but if its anything like the S7 models it will be decent with a few tweaks, i dont think it will be PIXEL beating but if it cant at least come close or matching then it will be a decent camera....
