I’m not a fan of gold phones: I think they’re gaudy and slightly pretentious, but I may be in the minority seeing as almost every major phone manufacturer has produced a gold version of their flagship device. The latest addition to this exclusive gold club is the LG G2 as part of LG‘s official announcement to make the LG G2 available in gold and red.
Unlike the smooth, glossy back of the original G2, these limited edition gold and red handsets appear to use a grooved plastic. It’s unclear whether this was a practical or purely cosmetic alteration, but you’ll definitely get a better grip on the device if you aren’t using a case. Hardware specs predictably haven’t changed and TechDroid is saying that it is available for purchase now in Singapore for $898 SGD. We’re still waiting to see details on how much these variants will be in other regions, but seeing as it is limited edition, I wouldn’t hold my breath if you don’t live around Asia.
What are your thoughts about gold phones in general: do you think people like the colour scheme? Let us know what you think.
