    Yes, brushed metal is my primary finish, matte is the second.
    Glossy surface is for me always the last option.

    Matte is love.
    Glossy??? Not that bad if it's ceramic/glass 😜

    That's more transparent, but I'll let it slide. :p

    And glossy for...?

    Oh the suspense is killing me. :D

    That's actually a good point: which case are you using right now? ;)

    I am team matte. :cool:

    I have tried devices both matte and glossy, and while a glossy finish can feel premium, I love how stealth the matte (frosty) effect looks. And not just black matte: I love the "Pacific Blue" on the iPhone 12 Pro, for example.

    I understand the logic, but not for me. Around 6.7 inches is the best size for a screen. Perhaps that will change with foldables.

    Exactly what @dsmonteiro says when talking about Benfica. :rolleyes::D

    Team Matte all the way!!!

    As said by some, I use a case everytime and may not feel the matte back. But, don't get me wrong, I sometimes remove the case and admire the matte finish on back by touching it. It's just 🤌

    Hah, I love how this reads like a rapper is describing the differences. :cool::p

    The ear (1)? I am really curious to check how the stock will be managed, the demand seems to be really high.

    If it's color white I prefer a glossy finish, it makes the phone look simple yet classy/elegant. Any other color would be matte . 😃👍👍

    For my next smartphone upgrade I'd definitely choose a matte finish, but I'm still in love with the glossy finish with the carbon fiber inlay on the back of my OnePlus 6T McLaren edition!

    😎

    Tbh I always remember it as:
    Glossy as in lip gloss (Because it basically covers your print).
    Matte is flatte, but the colours be true (because it's more using the direct printed product).

    I've always found matte more colourful but that might be the printers we use at work. gloss works well for bring out things in photos for example...

    Team Matte for sure✨
    Looks premium and is not a 'finger magnet'
    Although, would like to see more good colours like the recent ones, apart from the usual black 😁
