HTC launches a very limited 18ct Gold HTC One

Is Gold the new Beige?

Everyone's doing it these days!

Gold seems to be where it's at, at least for the moment. We've already seen Apple launch their gold/champagne colored iPhone, Samsung jumped on the bandwagon shortly after with their golden S4 and now HTC has followed suit with their own.

There is a small difference however, there are only five being made! The phone which is finished in 18ct gold, was made especially to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the MOBO awards, which takes place in ten days time. HTC in partnership with Goldgenie have produced the five smartphones with a price tag of £2,750 which translates to around 4412 bucks.

It's unknown if the phones include other special features, although it's likely based off the retail HTC one, a review of which you can check out here.

If you prefer an iPhone over the Android HTC One, Goldgenie has also launched the slightly cheaper 24ct gold version of the iPhone 5s which you can pick up for $4144; quite obviously a steal over the HTC One offering; It isn't limited to five either!

I hope handling the device for too long won't get you with heavy metal poisoning.
Too bad gold is overly sensitive to scratches, a bad looking device (with scratches) loses a LOT of its beauty.

So Apple comes out and does a tasteful "gold" (actually champagne), and now everyone else is following with "tacky gold" devices? LOL!!!

SOOOOOOOOOOOO INNNOOOVVVAAATTIVVEEE!!!!!!!!!

18k might be less expensive then 24k but it is also much more durable.

using 24k on the phone will mean it will scratch super easy. 18k makes much more sense, if you dont want to cover the phone up with a case.

Or you can put a clear coat on it to protect the gold without diminishing the value. 18kt also loses its luster much faster and starts to look like brass after repeated handling.

This is the better option - If you prefer an iPhone over the Android HTC One, Goldgenie has also launched the slightly cheaper 24ct gold version of the iPhone 5s which you can pick up for $4144; quite obviously a steal over the HTC One offering; It isn't limited to five either!

24K is better than 18k
