company sees stupid people, make stupid product, add a stupid price for it, stupid people buy it, everyone wins
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,
Anonymous, 23 May 2013Gorilla Glass 3 is durable...plus use a screen protector.....duh?Gorilla glass will not save you from smashing it when dropped. I dropped Galaxy III from the waist level on a concrete floor - the screen smashed in 2 places!
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?
Galaxy oro?!!! Samsung is biggest copyright company. Now this company is "nokiapple" no samsung.
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.
So someone is gonna pay £1700 to only then go and drop it and break the screen with one .
drop, well that kind of don't make sence.
If I paid that much for a phone, I want bullet proof glass!

And Samsung build the phone with plastic to use it with extreme weather conditions?
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.
samsung rules, 21 May 2013Polycarbonate is the best material for smartphones just like the US military their electronic ... moresince you love plastic so much, make sure when S5 non-plastic comes out, you don't complaint!
