joe, 16 Jan 2014So, what will be your excuse when Apple releases a larger screened iphone? So suddently telling the truth is called making excuses ?
Be Cool, 16 Jan 2014Yess. But when they say "Gold" phone, they always say ONLY : Gold.(never gold color... moreYou are totally missing the point. If an OEM let's say Samsung/Apple/HTC/LG/Oppo or whoever else release a what you call "real gold" they will imply the karat for example 24 karat gold edition . Simple !
The Gold Color will be on Sale across GCC End of January 4 the same price as G2 other colors.
I guess LG are not as gready as Apple;)
In the automotive industry this colour is called "champagne". It fits quite well. Let's stick to that as gold is waaay different that all those so called "gold" paintjobs on mobile phones.
No Card slot...
NOne Removable battery...
Lack of Innovation...
Samsung The BEST
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2014Gold is also a color besides being a metal. Leather imitations are not a color but the leather... moreYess.
But when they say "Gold" phone, they always say ONLY : Gold.(never gold color, or fake gold, or such)
And besides this is THE MOST kitschy thing in the tech world. And I bet , only few tasteless ppl buy it.
But when they say Note 3 , they never miss to say fake, or "pleather", trying to ridicule it. Right?
No matter that it's standard in the tech since decade , even better than real leather.
And Samsung made it really the best on Note 3.
Especially on the black version that they(media) avoid to show.
Most phone i saw have a cover case to protect for scratches. So useless to colored the phone.
Be Cool, 15 Jan 2014So everything yellowish is Gold now(since Apple painted the cheap tin-can) , but Note 3 leathe... moreGold is also a color besides being a metal. Leather imitations are not a color but the leather stitching in note 3 actually seems pretty nice. It gives the phone a "business" look.
Ethos-Evoss, 14 Jan 2014dont like goldYou mean fake "gold"?
Fake gold is much, much more kitschy than the fake leather for the tech, but tech media seem to love it(especially with Apple logo on it).
By the way the fake leather is a standard for the tech since decades.(check it out. So popular, that even the real leather is more kitschy there.
If Apple was made iDevice with fake leather, though, if would never be called "pleather" or fake.
The media would call it just "leather with beautifully soft touch". Right.
So everything yellowish is Gold now(since Apple painted the cheap tin-can) , but Note 3 leather backcover is called always FAKE leather.
By the way the tech media invented the term "Gold" for the champagne iphone color, but they don't know that only few poor hairdressers and few poor stupid ladies will buy this tasteless kitsch.
geordie81, 14 Jan 2014your now claiming that apple are trend setters in releasing golden coloured phones???? im not ... moreYou see those are coming back in fashion after the iPhone 5s revived the golden flavors
Anomynous, 14 Jan 2014Looks beige to me but thats ok since LG cant get anything right anyway. No surprise this l... moreI live in SE Asia, and have bought an LG G2. Funny enough that I got a 32GB variant (I didnt know before that LG release this in 2 versions, so I thought I would get a 16GB version) for about usd500, it is us$ 170 cheaper than Z1 and Note 3 (both are 16GB). For another comparison, the Galaxy S4 16GB Exynos costs usd 540. Really surprising. And here after some checking the 16GB G2 is nowhere to be found.
Gee, 14 Jan 2014No surprises here. Apple has been a trend setter on most occasions. Touchscreen phones, table... moreyour now claiming that apple are trend setters in releasing golden coloured phones???? im not so sure about LG but the likes of nokia and samsung have been offering gold phones for the best part of 10 YEARS, why dont you google it just to see how many times it has been used, trend setters!!! we are talking about a COLOUR SCHEME here.
