You don’t have to be rich and famous to own a smartphone with some serious style. While real diamonds and 24 carat gold may be out of your price range you can still get a premium look that is just as fashionable.
Today I want to give you the opportunity to discover the top gold coloured phones that have the premium look and feel that you have been searching for but without the hefty price tag.
So let’s take a look at the best mobile phones that could become one of your everyday gold fashion accessories.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gold applies its colour palette to all of the dual curved back and this extends onto the front panels, both above and below the display.
A 3D Thermoforming process is used to melt 3D glass, for shaping precision curves that meet the curved metal alloy body. Overall, the design is seamless and strong and the dual edge display adds the wow factor.

The Apple iPhone 7 gold has a new seamless unibody design that has been etched out of 7000 series aluminium. The overall look is traditionally Apple and uses a second dark gold tone to add contrast with the Apple logo.
The antenna strips no longer cross the back face and instead arch over the top and bottom edges. The front face of the iPhone 7 is coloured white.

The Huawei P9 Lite gold does not have a full metal body, like the others highlighted on this page. This does however make it the most affordable of the gold smartphones mentioned here.
What you do get with the Huawei P9 Lite gold is a metallic bezel and a slim and delicately finished alloy frame. The polycarbonate back case has a metallic look, so only you would know that it isn’t metal. All of the areas of the glass front that aren’t display, are coloured gold to complete the look.

The LG G5 gold adds its colour palette to the metal body and frame. The LG G5 has a unique look with the centralised placing of the dual-camera module, under which sits a gold coloured fingerprint scanner.
The curved back is mirrored on the front with 3D Arc Glass giving the display a gentle curve, for a completely seamless look. The eyes are treated further with an Always On display and a screen brightness that can be pushed up to 800nit, equivalent to the light produced by 800 candles.

The HTC 10 gold comes with a new all-metal unibody that has a dual-textured finish and textured power button. The chamfered contour makes the phone pleasing to hold and with the speaker grills having been etched into the bottom edge of the phone, audio remains unmuffled.
The HTC 10 gold has been built to be strong and has withstood extreme temperature, drop, corrosion and scratch testing, making it an excellent choice for everyday life.

Looking for a gold phone at a bargain price? Check out the gold mobile phones from last year, as prices start to tumble.
HTC One M9
The HTC One M9 Gold brings the gold colouring to all faces and this is highlighted with an accent colour. The metallic body curves on the back for a natural fit in the hand and the 5” display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
HTC phones are highly featured with lots of additions to sit on top of the Android OS. These include the HTC Themes app and BlinkFeed with the audio of media and games projected over stereo BoomSound speakers.
The gold coloured HTC One has a 20MP camera and this is backed up by an UltraPixel selfie camera, which has large pixels in the sensor to capture more light in low-light scenarios.
The LG G4 Shine Gold has a look all of its own with the metallic gold effect really looking genuine through the use of a textured hammered-array pattern. The 5.5” display has a brilliant definition giving 538 pixels per inch.
Stand-out features include the LG Health app and a power saving Glance View feature that lets you glimpse at notifications without fully activating the screen. The 16MP camera allows light painting with the shutter speed adjustable to up to 30-seconds. Images can also be saved in their original RAW state, allowing adjustments to be made post shot, in the same way that professional photographers do.
Sony Xperia Z5
The Sony Xperia Z5 Gold is without doubt one of the best looking smartphones on the market with a metal frame that is contrasted by a frosted glass back. This waterproof smartphone has a fingerprint sensor on the power button and this has been positioned on the side to enable pick-up and unlock in one move.
The 5.2” display is the perfect visual platform and this is complimented by S-Force Front Surround sound, taking gaming and media to new levels of immersion. The 23MP camera has 5x Clear Image Zoom for lossless quality when getting in close to the action and there is a 5MP selfie camera.
Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung dropped the patterned effect casing of old and opted for a smooth finish with the gold platinum colouring used on the front, side and back. The all metal and glass construction shouts ‘premium’ and the 5.1” display gives an amazing 557 pixels per inch.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Gold has a top-of-the-range 2.1GHz octa-core processor, fingerprint scanner and a great 16MP camera. This is complimented by a 5MP video calling/selfie camera and the Galaxy S6 is wireless charging ready, should you wish to buy a wireless charger.
Apple iPhone 6s
The Apple iPhone series never looked so good and the iPhone 6s has a more fluid look to it with gold coloured curving edges and back. The iPhone 6s Gold and iPhone 6s Rose Gold adorn a shell that is made from 7000 series aerospace-grade aluminium.
This aluminium is as strong and durable as that on any other phone and the toughness continues in the glass, which is made through an ion-exchange process, making it stronger on a molecular level.
The 4.7 inch display senses how hard it is pressed and this 3D Touch feature allows the user to preview links or content with a soft press or go to the content with a hard press. The iPhone 6S also sports a camera worthy of the brand with a main 12MP camera and a 5MP FaceTime HD camera to back it up.
