Pink obsession: five awesome smartphones available in pink

Pink obsession: five awesome smartphones available in pink
Some people love pink, and it's not just Aerosmith and their fans either. If that's your case, we want you to know that here at PhoneArena, we don't judge people based on their color preferences. In fact, we actually want to help you make the best decisions independent of which color you think that your next smartphone should be. As such, we did some digging and came up with a list of the top 5 pink smartphones.

With Valentine's day just around the corner, you might want to check out these phones, as gifting one of them to your significant other is a valid way of declaring your love. Sure, smartphones are pricier than a box of candies or a dinner for two in a romantic setting, but if you need to score some bonus points, here's what you should be looking for.

LG G4



The LG G4 was one of the hottest smartphones of 2015, and it's still a pretty good choice even at the moment. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any retailers offering the LG G4 pre-equipped with a pink back cover, meaning that you'll have to purchase one separately. We're seeing the official CPR-110.ACSPPK-Pink back cover for the LG G4 being offered by LG on its official US web store at 69.99, but other retailers such as Amazon have it at much lower prices. 

If you (or the person you're getting a pink phone for) already have the LG G4, then this is definitely the best option around, seeing that you can always change the back cover for something more appropriate for business events or formal dinners.

Pink back covers aside, the LG G4 is a solid pick for smartphone photography enthusiasts and it also comes with a removable battery and a microSD card slot, two features that appear to have faded into obscurity in the premium segment of the smartphone market. On the downside, the LG G4 is just not as powerful as other flagship smartphones currently available in the US. For a much closer look at the device, check out our full LG G4 review.

Motorola Moto X Pure Edition



One of the best things about the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition is that you can actually design your own by heading over to MotoMaker.com. While the phone isn't offered in a true pink version, you can go for the Raspberry Red soft grip back, which is quite close to your favorite color. Furthermore, you can also choose a true pink as the accent color. The pictures above show how this combination would work in practice.

As far the phone itself is concerned, we think that the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition was the 2015 smartphone that offered the best value for the money. It offers a microSD expansion slot, a near-stock Android experience with only minor customization, is water-resistant, and has the intriguing feature of an LED flash on the front. Furthermore, the 5.7-inch display is very bright, sharp, and color-accurate. On the downside, this is not the best-performing smartphone around, the battery life could have been improved, while the camera isn't well suited for low light situations.

HTC One M9

If you're looking for a pink metallic smartphone, then this special edition of the HTC One M9 could be of interest to you. The manufacturer has launched the pink version of the HTC One M9 to show support for breast cancer patients and has donated $25,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. 

By purchasing the pink HTC One M9, you not only get a pink metallic flagship handset, you're also helping a good cause. Aside from the plain pink version, the phone is also available in a version with a pink ribbon on the back, if you want to show your support even after making the purchase.

When it launched the pink variant of the One M9 back in early October, HTC said that the phone will only be available by the end of the month. Interestingly, however, the handset is still available for purchase at a price of $649.00.

Overall, the HTC One M9 is a very snappy smartphone, offers a great sound experience, and displays a premium design. On the downside, the design is getting pretty old nowadays, the 20MP primary camera underperforms in low light situations, and the 5-inch 1080p display manifests inaccurate color reproduction. Check out all of the details by heading over to our HTC One M9 review.

Sony Xperia Z5



A couple of weeks ago, Sony announced that a "Dusty Pink" version of the Xperia Z5 is going to launch at some point in February. Now, the Sony Xperia Z5 will officially launch in the US on the 7th of February. However, at this point, it is unknown if the pink version will be officially offered in the US.

The Sony Xperia Z5 comes with a very nice design, a premium glass-and-metal sandwich build, a bright display, and offers loads of processing power. Unfortunately, the Android implementation isn't up to par with what's currently offered by other flagships, the camera doesn't perform very well, and the same thing goes for the stereo speakers. Check out our Sony Xperia Z5 review for much more details on Sony's current-generation flagship smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5


Pink obsession: five awesome smartphones available in pink

Yeah, so this one is impossible to purchase in the US through official channels, but we figured that it should be mentioned here as a benchmark for just how pink a smartphone can get. Samsung is currently selling a "Pink Gold" version of the Galaxy Note 5 in several markets around Asia.

This particular version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 doesn't skimp on pink hues, displaying them everywhere you can imagine. The back panel, the front panel, the metal frame, as well as the S Pen are all pink.

Actually Apple's "RoseGold" is really ugly pink (specially combined with those greyish antenna lines) - it looks like salmon colored pink, not the rose gold that I've seen in Europe which is more bronze tinted than pink...

it is actually a combination between pink and gold. It really depends on ambient lighting and wall color if you're indoor. My iphone 6s plus shows more gold in my room. The wall paint color is pale green. When i'm in the hospital where i work, or in my aunt's house where the wall paint is white, my iphone shows the beautiful pink hue.
When outdoor, it displays pale pink hue prominently.

To be honest this Pink Obsession Article is a poorly disguised attempt at trying to market just the SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 5. It's a paid advertisement to promote the newly launched pink version of the Note 5.

Dun believe me? Just look at the key lines made by the writer.

1. LG G4 - On the downside, the LG G4 is just not as powerful as other flagship smartphones currently available in the US.

2. Moto X - On the downside, this is not the best-performing smartphone around, the battery life could have been improved, while the camera isn't well suited for low light situations.

3. HTC One M9 - On the downside, the design is getting pretty old nowadays, the 20MP primary camera underperforms in low light situations, and the 5-inch 1080p display manifests inaccurate color reproduction.

4. Xperia Z5 - Unfortunately, the Android implementation isn't up to par with what's currently offered by other flagships, the camera doesn't perform very well, and the same thing goes for the stereo speakers.

5. Samsung Note 5 - Wow. No imperfections mentioned. It's the benchmark for smartphones!

Agreed even though I like a lot of Samsung products. iPhoneArena are bias to Apple first then Samsung 2nd. Everyone else gets bad publicity.

They must be sponsored by both parties but more so by Apple.

1. where did you find all those "key lines made by the writer"?
2. why need to promote a pink version of note 5 if that phone isnt available for US and EU?
3. it isnt "newly launched pink version of Note 5", its been around since Oct last year http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-adds-two-brand-new-colors-to-Galaxy-Note5-line-up_id74739

The Note 5 actually looks snazzy with that purple wallpaper.
I've never seen anyone with a pink phone ever. Don't even think I've seen any at retailers or carriers stores.
