The gold S5 actually has a copper-colored back panel and it looks extremely elegant. First revealed only in black and white at the Mobile World Congress in Spain, Samsung seems to reward late buyers for waiting. It has become a tradition already and not long after the release of a legendary smartphone, improved versions or exquisite designs come to amaze the markets.
Most fans of the Samsung Galaxy S5 would comment that the color is not important, as long as you get the device. Actually, the manufacturer’s choice of colors is a conscious one and it has its purposes. Therefore, consumers are targeted depending on their age and favorite colors. Lighter color palettes suggest refinement while colorful hues inspire very young people to buy these devices. Many other companies have trusted this strategy, like Apple, for example. Apple has been releasing iPhone editions in green, blue, yellow and red varieties, as limited editions. Of course, white phones are never ignored by consumers so the white edition is a must for every smartphone developer. Lately, best smartphone companies follow the same marketing rule: Motorola, Nokia, HTC, LG and others.
