Well guess the gold back cover heat will be 55ºC because gold is a good conductor of heat. Samsung has to solve the S4 overheating problem,

This gold plated version is a statement that you have money.... and if you do have that kind of money for the phone - why worry if it breaks when dropped?

Gold Plating costs next to nothing to achieve. They havent manafactured a custom casing from gold here, they have just applied gold plating (like the end of your cable jacks) this will probably cost under £5 to achieve. Even with staffing and marketing expenses this is way way way over priced.

You could buy a plating kit - the soloution and the handset for less than this.

And guess what, I'm sure your phone ,might be saved when making call under the hail storm ("extreme weather condition") as it is made by plastic but I am sure you won't be.
