Oh Please... Samsung's been offering this same GOLD trim option on their Galaxy Tab 3 and Galaxy Note 8.0 tablets since their introduction some 6 months ago, so this is no surprise and only natural that it would also be offered on other Samsung Galaxy devices.

Yeah, just keep yourself in denial. Just because it's not exclusive, it does not mean samsung did not copy. When there are one or two things that just looks similiar, it may be coincident. When there are over 100 items similar, that is no coincidence. They'd even make the box and charge looks similiar to Apple's. FYI, I have 4 samsung smartphones before I switched to Apple. They are still all in my drawer.

you don't seem to understand the previous comment. Samsung fanboys always nag on Apple for copying. Just after Apple's Iphone 5s in gold had to increase production by 33% over other colors (to compensate for demand on the gold color), well, now Samsung is trying to copy the apparent gold rush. Funny how Samsung fanboys are all of a sudden *very quiet* about it...or in denial such as yourself, that Samsung is copying. When will all fanboys of all companies realize that EVERYONE copies everyone else, and get over it.

Dude, I can't find Samsung. Am I supposed to keep scrolling down farther?

Same boat as Dark, sitting here watching you slam these tools back into their box. Most entertaining thread comments I've read all week.

See the Samsung Giorgio Armani, circa 2011. So, who's copying?

I believe this is the gold trim Samsung is "coming out with" as well as the gold trim it came out with 3 years ago. Now, just because darkjeddi gets on his knees for you doesn't mean either of you can produce anything showing Samsung wasn't 1st. Enjoy the Msa show!

Are you in denial about toggles, pull down notifications, answer a call with a message, multitasking windows, fingerprint scanner, animated wallpapers, etc, etc....

Huh, not all of us Android users are overjoyed about Samsung's dominance. Me personally, I prefer a lot more balance among the OEMs than just one dominating them all.

Please don't judge the many according to the loud mouth few.

Apple fans will still call it copying even though Samsung had it first.

The thing is... Samsung should've 'released' this very version around the time S4 first hit the shelves, or rather, get ready with it. Doesn't matter which type of gold device was released by whom in the past...start searching for it and you'll probably figure out Samsung ain't the first to come up with a gold colored device. But right now, Samsung is feeling the heat, and not to flame you up but they deserve it...and i don't blame people supporting Apple here. If they wanted a device to be Gold now, i think Note 3 should take the crown in my opinion. It's just a bad timing for Samsung.

On second thought, that might not be a solution at all. If Samsung released S4 in gold when it was first launched and Apple came up with it later...Samsung fanboys will be all over Apple again. And the battle continued to infinity. Hence, the entire comments will be the other way round.
Oh, boy! What a movie this would've been.

Well Samsung did announce the Samsung "Golden" (the damn thing has gold in it's name!) on 8-4-13, over a month before Apple officially announced the gold 5S. Not a word from Samsung peeps because there have been other ugly gold phones before, even from Samsung, the S3600 in fact.
The problem is the iFans, in typical iFan fashion, think Apple invented the gold colored phone and any gold phone is copying Apple due to being uneducated in any device that does not have an "i" in front of it.

Hi, I'm "verbalize". I am an Apple fanboy. All I do is take every opportunity, regardless of whether it is relevant, to claim that the largest Apple competitor only copies Apple, because I am a corporate parrot who thinks with his feelings rather than with reason.
I lick my iPhone every morning and evening, and call it perfect, including its 4 inch screen... until later this year, when I will immediately call 4.7" the new "perfect" (iPhone 6) :-)

So this is one of the outcome from spying outside the Apple store on iPhone 5S/5C release day?
