Galaxy Note 5 in Gold Platinum officially makes its US debut, currently only available at T-mobile

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 5 earlier this year, it broke the hearts of roughly half of its Western world fans, when it announced that the smartphone will not be sold in Europe this year. Then, it started offering the phablet in the US in just 2 of the three announced colors. The full choice of finishes is White Pearl, Black Sapphire, and Gold Platinum, but, unfortunately, the gold one has been missing from the shelves of US retailers up until today.

T-Mobile has announced that it will be selling the Gold Platinum Note 5, starting today. It's the first of the major US carriers to do so, so if you've been struck by the gold fever – there's nowhere else to go at this moment (hint: yeah there is – try Amazon).

T-Mo will not be asking a pretty penny for the rather unique finish – the Note 5 will set you back $0 down and 24 payments of $29.17 ($699.99 full retail) per month for the 32 GB model, or $99.99 down and 24 payments of $28.34 per month ($779.99 full retail), regardless of the color. However, buying from the carrier's website or through its telesales, you can use the NOTE5DEAL promo code and get $50 off of your purchase. Spare money for some cool cases, no?

Not to contradict, but think the gold stands out the most with the non-+ sized GS6 variations.

I like the gold models, especially of the S6 Edge, but the only downside is most of the themes on the theme store dont look good with the gold color. I had rather they got the Silver/Platnium. If they did, I would use my JUMP and just jump to that color. I already have a Gold S6 Edge I can play with, so I'm good. if they had the gold in the beginning, I likely would have gotten it because that si what I wanted at first. I dont understand wen they offer 4 colors, sell them all at the same time. Dont release 2 and then some later.

The silver titanium is a good looking phone. I was so exited for a second. I thought they were finally carring it!

Samsung isnt even thinking about Note 4 anymore. Consumism.

Colors aside, not sure why anyone would choose a gimmicky curved display over a practical stylus.

It's thinner, lighter and I think it looks better too. Do I think it's worth the extra $80? No, but I can see why some people may get the edge plus over the note 5. Both great phones though.

See I feel the the complete opposite.. I had the note 3 and 4 but never used the stylist.. I tried to force myself but in the end it gets used less and less. I went with the s6 edge plus and its been a dream
