If you plan on preordering a Samsung Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24 Ultra today, you’ll be faced with a very important decision regarding your new phone’s color.

If you get an S24 at Amazon, Best Buy, or from your carrier, you’ll find four OK styles to choose from. The S24 and S24 Plus come in Onyx Black, Marble Gray, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow. Want an S24 Ultra? You get to choose from Titanium Violet, Yellow, Black, or Gray. They’re decent choices, and it’s nice to see some symmetry across all three phones.

However, as it turns out, Samsung has some secret colors you’ll only find on its website — and they’re the best ones you can get.

A refreshing green color

If you preorder any of the Galaxy S24 models directly from Samsung’s website, you’ll find three other exclusive colors you can’t get anywhere else. The first one is Jade Green/Titanium Green — depending on which S24 model you choose.

It’s a really pleasing, almost calming shade of mint green. It looks lovely, especially with the gray titanium border you get on the S24 Ultra variant.

Look at that blue!

Another exclusive color is called Sapphire Blue/Titanium Blue. It’s a pastel blue hue, and it looks similar to the Sky Blue color Samsung offered last year on the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Similar to green, it manages to be a very chill color without looking too boring. And once again, I really like how it contrasts with the S24 Ultra’s titanium frame. It’s a great look.

Oh, so orange

Last, but certainly not least, the third exclusive color for the S24 series is Sandstone Orange/Titanium Orange. This is a deep, colorful orange hue, and I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen it on a phone like this.

There were rumors we’d see something similar for the iPhone 15, but that never came to fruition.

Don’t miss out on the S24’s best colors

Hiding exclusive smartphone colors on its website isn’t anything new for Samsung, but it’s always a good reminder to have around a new Galaxy launch. The standard Galaxy S24 colors aren’t bad by any means, but the Samsung-exclusive ones are considerably more eye-catching.

You won’t pay extra for the new colors, and Samsung’s website has some of the best preorder deals you’ll find, so you might as well start your shopping there.

When you look at smartphones these days, the selection has grown a bit … stale, to say the least. You’ll see phones from top brands like Samsung, Apple, and even Google, but most options look the same — they’re glass slabs.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 just failed a critical durability test

Smartphones tend to improve yearly, but their usefulness decreases if they break because of a fall. To see which smartphones are better than others in this regard, we can turn to companies like Allstate Protection Plans, which regularly tests the durability of new mobile devices, so we don't have to.

The most recent Allstate Protection Plans drop tests have revealed concerning results for the newly released Samsung Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra smartphones. Spoiler: They don't perform as well as last year's models.

Don’t buy a Galaxy S24 Ultra or iPhone 15 Pro Max. Do this instead

“Do I need all that?” That’s the question on the mind of shoppers before they splurge a now-standard $1,000 asking price for a top-tier phone in 2024. Ideally, that dilemma should be there. The likes of Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max have won laurels for a handful of standout features they offer. But you might not need those standout features at all.

I’ve been on that road, and more frequently than I have the temerity to admit. For some reason, regret comes as part of the $1,200 flagship parcel. That's unless your phone is a part of your creative or work process, or you just don’t care and only want the latest and greatest for the vanity of it. A segment like that certainly exists, but that affluent user base doesn’t dictate the journey of a product.
