When people saw the “new” Galaxy S4 for the first time, they were disappointed in the fact that Samsung never bothered to change the design much or cared about the kind of materials that went into the making of the phone. I mean, the plastic back panel and the chrome stripped edges didn’t at all give you any confidence inspiring feeling. That said, the positive thing for Samsung is that people STILL go ahead and buy it. In ridiculous numbers. Really, shameful when you consider the kind of effort HTC had put in making the HTC One – which is more of an art form than a phone and it sells in paltry numbers when compared to the plasticky S4. What an unfair world! Anyway thats what we’re on about here.
For those of you who think your newly bought Galaxy S4 just isn’t distinctive enough, and you have loads of spare cash to splurge on, you might want to do something like this. Cover it up in gold. Thats right – adding glitter to your phone usually is the domain of rich iPhone wielding junta – but the tradition seems to have trickled on to Androidites as well nowadays looking at the number of expensive metal clad phones out there on the offing nowadays.
The company that will help you with adding some bling to your Galaxy S4 is UK based Goldgenie. Note that the gold version is actually the “base” version. Goldgenie will also happily suggest you get yourselves a more expensive platinum or a rose gold version of the phone for even more exclusivity.
These will set you back by $ 2600 each. All customized handsets would come in their own customized Luxury Cherry Oak Finished Box – so you don’t have to keep it atop your inexpensive table when you come back home after a hard days work. But then, if you have that kind of money to spend on your phone, you might not be working THAT hard anyway, I presume.
