I'll say the iPhone has best use of gold color even if it looks like R2-D2 had just been ran over. Droid like.

The iPhone 5s is better looking than the iPhone 6,, be it any color; though the iPhone 6 is slimmer and lighter but the 5s with its sharp chamfoured edges and subtle variations in texture and gold color, screams premium and also feels very robust in the hand. And in the android world..The mate 7 and the one m8 would take the gold crown here..mate 7 would be a hit if huawei can get their prices right

@phonearena : Z3 actually has copper color, not gold. In my opinion the winners are : 1. HTC One M8 Gold 2. Sony Xperia Z3 Copper 3. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Gold

Of course the Iphone is better because it's made from real gold.

oWow!!! Thank you almiGhty Apple, without you nothing would be gold and we would be stuck with black phones or Martha Stewart Fresh Linen White phones. Apple is a trend-setter; the iGalaXi would not be the same without the exestential existance thereof; humans are iNferior if they carry anything less than a gold iPhone. Praise the iAlmighty one and may your children's children also graze in wheat fields.

There are GOLD phones before the iPhone exists. The difference is that these phones were feature phone, whereas iPhone is a smartphone. Thus, without those 2012 GOLD-toned feature phones, there's no Apple iPhone Gold. HAHAHA. Thank u Almighty God.

Samsung made there Big mistake with the Galaxy S5 Colours,as you thought when you bought it in Gold you would get the Front Screen in the same colour as the Battery Cover,an have now realised that with the Galaxy Alpha an Note 4,an thats Why the Sales of the Galaxy S5 was not as good as Samsung were Hoping,i have a Gold Tempered Glass on my Galaxy S5 an it looks alot better with a Matching Gold Love MEI bumper Frame on it so All Gold makes the Galaxy S5 alot better

The Z3 has a more premium look.
