Which photo paper is better? Glossy or matte?
It really depends on the photos. I would prefer glossy photos for normal shots. Like the wedding group photos shots. But if its candid, then matte is the way to go. All the post processing and the quality of the photos taken using a DSLR are more prominent in matte prints.
Another thing about glossy is , it does not offer a very pleasing view of the photos. Sometime or the other, light is reflected off the photo making it not viewable to the fullest, whereas matte prints will look more of like a magazine and is very interesting to view.
Also large size photos look great in matte prints. Glossy is best suited for 6 x 4 prints.
So it really depends on what you prefer, over criteria such as cost, clarity and photo type and size.
For me, I would prefer matte anytime except for small photos where glossy is good.
