Here are the first live pics of the LG G2 gold edition
LG just outed two new hues for its current flagship, the G2, providing chassis in red or gold, in addition to the black and white colors the handset came with. The golden G2 was already spotted on preorder in Taiwan, and now we have the first live pictures that show how it really looks like, apart from the puffed up renders.

As you can see, it has a textured back, which we couldn't tell from the renders, and the coloring is not all that flashy or tacky, making for a rather interesting handset in this hue. The price is said to be about $500 for the gold variant, and all that is left now is to check out the red LG G2 when it hits the shelves soon.

I think it doesnt look that bad personally as it does on the official pictures

Black and white looks great, but the other color variations are not very appealing to me mainly because of the obvious black buttons/camera on the back that doesn't match with the rest of the body.

The wine color is elegant... I still think this is the most underrated phone of the year..

Oops, sorry. I messed up the word "underrated", I don't know why I think it means the thing it's low rated. lol Sorry about that.

Well, yesterday I said the gold one is ugly, but actually it looks quite nice in the live pics. I still prefer the red one though.

I like the Gaudy effect. I hope the Moto Maker has one colour called "Gaudy Gold" or "Richie Rich".

I am pretty sure that I am the only person in the world that uses my cellphone without a case. Other than me, I don't know why people think colors and textures on phones are important.

hopefully the next LG G3 doesn't have the volume rocker next to the power button and camera.
