These hand-crafted Galaxy S6 and S6 edge models are made out of gold, platinum, and black rhodium
If a top-of-the-line, 128GB storage Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge unit just doesn't do it for you, Finland-based luxury consume electronics maker Legend may have a more appropriate outlet for your Tuesday allowance. 

For 'just' €2150 ($2,270), Legend will hand-craft an S6 or S6 edge in 24K or 18K gold, rose gold, platinum, or black rhodium. Throw in an extra €200 ($211), and you can have a custom, laser-engraved design. A further €100 (or €2300 ($2,420) in total) will get you one of the few limited edition units available – Crocodylus (50 units), Wild Thing (10 units), and Alhambra (10 units). Legend claims that it has a secret and unique process that ensures antenna signal works just fine, despite the metal plating. We're also told that scratches won't be a problem with Legend's special-made devices, as they have applied a super-thin clearcoat formula to make sure the precious materials retain their shine for years to come.

All hand-crafted Galaxy S6 and S6 edge units from Legend will come in an equally luxurious box, and have a 5-year warranty and a certificate of authenticity.

boring. Why not edge version? S6 design is boring. They only replace plastic with aluminium and glass so nothing new afaic

replaced plastic with aluminium and glass is a huge leap, compared to other manufacturers like apple, htc and sony has done. The normal S6 looks much better than any of Samsung previous flagship phones. You need to see and feel the normal S6 in person, not just from pictures.

Apple has done the same since 2010, and now it's a huge leap? come on, S6 is not a Project Zero, i mean put S5 and S6 together, and you won't be able to tell which one is the S6 unless you look carefully and closely. HTC One X -> HTC One M7, looks more of a Project Zero IMHO. i've tried S6 in person, not impressed design-wise, no matter how people keep saying S6's display is the best, i can't really find that significant difference from Note 4.

The S6 is a 2015 device, which should be compared to its 2014 device, now compare other manufactures latest device to their predecessors (1 year before) and tell me who's done a better job at changing something? So your actually telling me if you put the S5 and S6 together, side by side, back to front and every other angle of the phone you can see... you still find it hard to notice the difference? I think you may need to get your eyes checked... and let me guess the plastic casing on the S5 feels the same as the glass and aluminium of the S6 to? HTC One X to HTC One M7 is more of a Project Zero i agree, but why are you talking about phones in the past when im clearly talking about the phones NOW that are more relevant?

Compare a 2015 Hyundai Elantra (Korean) to a Chevy Cruze (American).

Don't try to even make sense with a post the Samsung hype train still hasn't stopped, it's not worth it.

You don't know what you are talking about or simply you don't have the ability to differentiate between two thing, or in the other hand, you are simply blind. Even without looking, the feel between the touch phones is completely different or you want to tell me that you don't also have the sense of touch. If you lack the sense of touch and that of sight, you just as good as dead. s6 is a complete overhaul from the s5. take it or leave it.

They just copied the Iphone and Sony and that in the bad way, with ugly protruding lens, button and no simetry.They used metal and glass, but other did that more than 3 years ago and that simply isn't innovation for me.They must have identity crisis.

Put the iPhone 4,4s,5 and 5s together and you can barely tell the difference. Other than size and materials, the iPhone design has hardly changed in 8 years. From the front, not at all. And there isn't a significant difference between the display quality of the Note 4 and S6. They're both the top of the display heap. The significant difference is in comparing to competing displays.

i think he meant going from plastic to metal is a huge leap not just metal phones

what's interesting is the pricing. the gold version adds just a 1200$ to the phone value, while the apple watch edition who certainly contain a far less quantity of gold than this phone, apple decided to add 9650$ and 16 650$ for just some fue grams of gold added to a watch. just an example of how apple make their huge profits

Though I am a Samsung fan, The truth is that the front of Samsung phones are very common looking. There r hundreds of Samsung galaxy phones, all have signature front look. But the logo placement and physical home button on every Samsung phone are making people bored. Samsung needs to shift their thinking.
