    This commercial is already on TV. Although I am not a fan of gold phones personally.....people that like gold phones would like that commercial.
    Whats wrong with it?
    EDIT: Looked up your post history of the OP luckdcxx......Apple fan posting something negative about a Samsung product! How original! :)

    I bought the gold S5 changed back plate to the black one and think it looks cool with gold trim / accents.

    Seems like an average commercial to me. Not good, and not bad. Just the run of the mill cookie cutter "insert trending artist here" type of ad.

    What's sad and pathetic is that white women, especially young ones, have been so bombarded and brainwashed by the mass media they are now so gullible that this kind of BS works on them. Sad.

    White women?

    Advertising preying on the gullible is nothing new, race and gender have nothing to do with it.

    There's plenty of gullible people out there.

    Gold S5 looks good in this commercial compared to those band-aid comments at the time of release.
    Looks like its bezel is in gold color instead of that cheap chrome. So, it is actually a plus.



    ----------

    Some how phone looks nice with any other combination of back cover (two tone versions). I think, except for white every other color comes with black front screen. I am planning to get black back cover for my white S5. Are there any reliable and cheap ebay versions. Erica video with covers swapping for black and white S5. They both look nice.

    Easy. Don't press the 'new thread' button and type something.

    The blue and black version have same black front, the gold has a black front but with a slight gold hue that is only seen in direct sunlight.

    I just bought an official Samsung back off an ebay seller for €10 ... I had seen the erica video where she said some unofficial ones don't come with the water proof suction rim, so I just went with the official one. The difference was only about €2 for me.

    I thought this one was pretty harmless, especially for a Samsung commercial. Honestly I much prefer this to Jony Ive's smarmy, over-earnest face in the i-device commercials.

    I like the gold S5 and that's the one that I have. As soon as all the colors were announced I liked the gold straight away. It doesn't look anything like a band aid to me. It doesn't really matter which colour you choose because as Mac rumours shows you can just change the back. I think the black screen with gold trim looks really nice. In fact I prefer it to the iPhone 5S on gold which I briefly owned because it has a black front.
