Less than a week after the iPhone 5s went on sale in gold, Samsung is now proudly showing off its latest creation; a gold Galaxy S4. We’re not here to claim Apple was first with a gold phone, because obviously that’s not true, but given all the ‘copying’ talk in recent months and years, it’s almost predictable.
But, while – perhaps surprisingly so – Apple’s gold iPhone 5s looks pretty tasteful, I’m not sure the same can be said for Samsung’s effort. For one, we can’t actually see the back of the phone, but the shade around the edges looks less Champagne, and more, well gold. It also comes in two very odd choices of front; brown and pink. While white and gold, or even black and gold would seem like the best option, brown and pink seems, well odd.
Samsung’s Arabia Twitter account has been showing off the new phone, so it’s quite possible it will only sell in limited markets. It’s all in good fun of course, but what do you think to this? Gold seems to be the new black, but has Samsung gone a little mad?

While the iPhone 5S is rumored to be coming in 3 colors this September, including gold along with a less-expensive iPhone 5C is rumored in red, green, blue, yellow, and white, the newest phone from Google’s Motorola subsidiary takes color two steps further. Phil Nickinson from Android Central, in his usual bad ass fashion, has done a complete Moto X review, but he’s also gone into its customization system, Moto Maker. First, the phone:
Next, the body work:
I kinda love the wood. If it came in gold and wood, it’d look exactly like the panelling in my friend’s father’s old station wagon I remember so fondly from childhood.
The idea of choosing the design treatment from back to front to accent is exciting. Dell, and others, including case makers, have tried it in the past, but phones are more personal and increasingly more fashion oriented. Apple probably can’t do this any time soon – spitting out tens of millions of the same phone demands economies of scale that oppose heavy customization. But would you want it if you could have it, or do you prefer Apple’s preset color choices?
