Gold phone? Definitely not my style. But if you like it, OP... that's all that matters at the end of the day

Personally, i love black and gold together.

And as long as you understand what you're getting into, and have read all of the fine print, go for it!

I thought about colorware before, but i was always worried the paint wouldnt stand up to daily usage.

But OK some people don't want to have the same thing as a few million others, so a little customization, perfectly reasonable. If I ever to that, I would engrave my last name in script on the outer metal band and leave it silver and not do anything to both glasses as they are perfect as is.

For the 5, I really have no opinion. There was a reason when given the choice, I picked the 4s over the 5 despite all the advancement, A6 blah-blah.
Did you seriously compare the iPhone 4S with Kubrick's metaphor for a cinema screen?

You rock

Because the OP is thinking a GOLD?

Whatever happened to those premium cell phone brands? They modify the original phone with diamonds and charge you $25,000... and yes you have to replace it after it becomes obsolete in 18 months.

It may become obsolete when the iPhone 6 comes out but would sell for more since it has special paint on it

I'm not a fan of the gold personally, but if you want to spend the money then go for it.

I'm waiting to hear if the rumours of the 5S in multiple colours comes true

Uh, i'm not sure that is true. You'd basically limit your buyers from thousands to a handful who have the same taste as you. Plus i'd be skeptical if it was some sort of a knock of seeing gold paint on it...

Save your money and donate it to charity instead.

Beyond the wildly confusing use of the word "gangsta" have you considered that maybe people have different tastes than you? I had a black iPod 3 years before Apple started selling them and a ton of people bought the original iMacs in a variety of colors.

Amazing as it is there are many people that couldn't care less about resale value, I've never resold an electronic device in my life. I'm sure you don't really need a high end phone either, you should probably sell it and donate the money to charity.

I wouldn't do it personally, but if I were to do it I wouldn't get it in gold. Gold reminds me of the 90s, and while I loved the 90s, that was 20 years ago.
