Yesterday Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to the world, giving us a new member of the Note family that takes obvious inspiration from its little brother, the Samsung Galaxy S6. We’ve already brought you a number of features and videos showcasing the new Note 5 and the Edge+, but now it’s time to jump in and take a quick look at how each of the new colors compare.

Samsung’s most familiar colors do make a return here, so let’s start by focusing on those. Yes, we are talking about black sapphire and pearl white, the two most common colors in the Samsung ecosystem.

Just like with the Galaxy S6, all the Note 5 colors have a translucent look but the black and white colors do help hide the fingerprints better than most. It’s also worth noting that both of these colors won’t like you see your reflections quite the same as you will with the next two colors.

Up next we have gold platinum, a color that was first introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S6. The gold platinum makes this phone look quite different as it has very different sheen to it, but its translucency does make the reflections on the back very prominent. The color is also very prone to fingerprints, which may or may not be a dealbreaker depending on your personal preferences.

Finally we have titanium silver, a brand new color to Samsung that is being introduced with both the Note 5 and Edge+. The titanium silver is a nice compromise between black and white, but this color is still just a little bit too reflective for my own tastes. If you prefer matte colors like I do, this one probably won’t be what you’re looking for, though the color is admittedly very attractive.

Really all the phones look pretty great regardless of the color you choose, perfectly complimenting the metallic frame and glass body design of the Note 5. Bottom-line, it will just come down to which color most speaks to you.

Which is your favorite, and why? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
