Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the much-anticipated update to its premium Galaxy S series of smartphones, including the small-ish Galaxy S21, the larger Galaxy S21+, and the massive Galaxy S21 Ultra. Any one of these devices can compete for the title of best Android phone in 2021, and each packs a long-lasting battery, gorgeous display, and capable cameras.

One of the most interesting aspects about the S21 line was the design update, incorporating the camera housing into the side rails rather than featuring it as a "bump" on the back. Samsung also introduced several new colors under its Phantom pallete, including Phantom Violet, Phantom Silver, and Phantom Black. However, not every color is available for every model S21, and the color choices per model have left some consumers scratching their heads on which to choose.

My husband went through Samsung and hit the white and their was something about 2 trade ins not being able to happen so I went to Best Buy plus I was reading horror stories about trade ins on slick deals. but I know I waited a couple months or longer for my S10 Plus in flamingo pink. My first choice was silver on the ultra...

  • Yep, phantom 👻violet. Wow-we what a futuristic design? My three favorites, S7edge, S10+ and now this!
  • It goes in a case so doesnt matter
  • No. I actually was limited to Black or Silver for the combination of carrier, size, and model I picked. But given that it's going to live in a case, it's not a big deal.
  • No, I wanted the phantom silver ultra, but it was only available for 128GB,so I settled for black for the 256GB model. Always buy unlocked
  • Yes I did; Phantom Gray.
