Crystal encrusted Samsung Galaxy S III Swarovski Edition by Amosu Couture
Since the Samsung Galaxy S III is a smartphone almost too hot to handle, covering it in ice might not be such a bad idea. Metaphorically speaking, of course. That is exactly what the designers at Amosu Couture have crafted – a tailor-made Samsung Galaxy S III that sparkles with 500 Swarovski gems inlaid in its bezel while 16 additional crystals are embedded in its home button.

But as all fine things in life, this custom Galaxy S III does not come cheap. Ordering one in either white or blue will set you back £2099.00, which is over $3400, or about 5 times the handset's original, bling-less retail cost. That is a hefty price indeed, despite the fact that you get a deluxe Amosu Couture calf leather case as a gift. Alternatively, should you be a Galaxy S III owner already, Amosu is willing to pimp it out for "just" £1399 ($2270). 

But if the steep pricing isn't much of a problem, feel free to check this luxury Android smartphone at Amosu's web site, or explore the other customized handsets that the brand has to offer. As for us, we'd stick to our "poor man's" stock Galaxy S III for now, thank you very much.

$3400? With that I can:

- Buy a fully customized Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook with a 500GB SSD hard drive
- Pay my phone bill almost 20 times
- Use it for my college books

You'd have to be filthy rich to even consider this...

It's for rich people , it's a luxury .
I would do it if I have the cash . It's more special than a jewelry . It's a smartphone and a jewelry .
My mother and aunt might be interested

iPhone is a better platform to do it as rich people prefer iPhones and blending plastics and crystal wasn't exactly nice .
It's like having a ring made from plastic with a big crystal on it

Some rich people actually like android phones .
But I see majority of them using iPhones with gold bumper and blah blah blah or just a normal iPhone

Ignorant people can't even make the difference between material and build quality.

I love my the plastic back on the S3 than the aluminum back on my iPhone 5 only for two reasons IT DOESN'T SCRATCH AS EASY and when it does ITS NOT THAT VISIBLE!
