Picking the right color of S23 for yourself

Four shades are constant across all three Samsung phones: Green, Phantom Black, Lavender, and Cream. Samsung is also offering some online-exclusive colorways, but not all of them are available for every S23 model.

The S23 Ultra comes in four extra colors if you purchase the device directly from Samsung's website. These shades are Graphite, Sky Blue, Lime, and Red. Meanwhile, the S23 and S23+ are only available in Graphite and Lime on Samsung's online store.

Of all the colors of the S23 series, Green is undoubtedly the best coat of paint. You won't have any regrets afterward since the color is a crowd-pleasing tone. It's neither bright like Red nor bold like Lime, and it's not boring either.

On the other hand, vivacious colors like Red, Lime, Sky Blue, and Lavender all make a statement and are sure to draw a smile on your face every time you glance at your S23. You could argue that most people put a case on their S23, S23 Plus, or S23 Ultra, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you won't be able to look at the color of your phone. A lot of great phone covers are semi-clear, completely transparent, or sheer nowadays.
