Best gold-colored smartphones

Like it or not, gold smartphones are here to stay. We’re not talking about devices that are actually made out of gold, but about those that just have gold among their standard color options.


The trend seems to have started after Apple released the iPhone 5s last year, offering it in grey, white, and gold. Sure enough, gold-colored phones existed before, but they weren’t as popular and diversified as now.

As of this year, almost every notable flagship smartphone has a gold version - in addition to classic colors like black, white, or grey. Thus, this is a perfect time for us to gather the best golden smartphones in a single article. Check them all out below, and let us know if you have any favorites.

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Although it represents a major upgrade (and, in some ways, a new beginning for Apple), the brand new iPhone has the same color variants as the iPhone 5s, obviously including gold. Only its back and sides are golden, though, with most of its front panel (minus the circle around the home button) being white. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus look pretty much similar in gold, and are available to buy in select markets as of September 19.
