Should I Do It?

Should I get my iPhone 5 colored by colorware/anostyle? Money isn't really an issue, but I'd get this one :3

If you don't care about your warranty then sure, why not. All those colors look ugly IMO.

But it's GOLD!
Warranty gets transferred to AnoStyle's own warranty, I think.

You have to get it modified by an external vendor, but it can be done.

If I had an iPhone 5, I'll get it modified to have a pale pink color

You like it. You want to stand out. You have the money. This isn't even a conversation, screw what everyone else says. Do it. Then tell me about it because I want to do it badly.

EDIT: Colourware is ass. Just saying

If money wasn't a thing for me I'd go for the teal anodized iPhone from Anostyle in a heartbeat. Do it, OP!

I don't think gold and black compliment each other, in my opinion it needs to be a different color, if the iPhone had the white glass then it would look better gold

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.

I'd go for it if gold was your absolute final choice. Although, you could get someone to anno it any color/finish you want. You said money wasn't an issue but it would be cheaper. The only downfall is it would be a hassle to take it apart and put it back together after it's finished. Or I guess you could just get a shop to tear it down and build it back up.

I think it looks a lot better in this photo.

Like others have said, your $$ do what you want, but that is ugly.

THIS X 100. Why in the world would you pay for someone to basically make your iphone look gangsta? Matter of fact if someone did that to my phone for free i'd be pissed.
