When you buy a phone, you always take into consideration the build material used. Subsequently, more expensive materials are often used on phones for added value, such as the aluminum body on the HTC One. There are some who want to go even further than just better build materials, and what screams out "filthy rich" more than a gilded phone?
GoldGenie has obviously noticed the small market nook for those who want a phone to have status beyond its technology. It has given us a 24ct. gold plated HTC One for a mere $3,100, with the platinum HTC One coming in for slightly more at $3,200. Naturally, you expect more than just a bit of rare metal on the phone's body for that price, so the company has ensured that the phone is unlocked. The SIM-free smartphone comes with some Beats audio earphones, and the final package has a lovely box to envelop it all.
For those who want some more gilded items, the company can also embellish your Wii, tablet or even golf club. Don't get fooled into a bad deal though, as you can get a 24ct. gold plated iPad for a mere $10,000, as we have seen before in Dubai. Normally, we would recommend a case for the phone to protect the soft gold plating, but if you are buying a nice looking phone, why would you want to cover up your money's worth? Yet again, we are left with an age old question: Can money really buy you class?
Ya, that is one of those things. News is always a few days late to the punch, and images you click through to are often smaller than the pic on the article page. But the in depth reviews are often amazing, which makes up for all of that.
Welcome to Tom's
And I believe this is the 2nd or 3rd redesign? Yeah because there was one time when every old school member had a join date of 1970. Well, I didn't even exist during that time, since my parents would have still been in Junior High!
$3200 with wooden box, take away wooden box and that phone price slashes in half.
