Commentary: Vlad Savov — Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 and Gear S Swarovski editions scream of opulence

The new Gear S Tizen smartwatch and the Galaxy Note 4 Android phablet will both come with exclusive silver and gold variations that are adorned with densely packed Swarovski crystals. The effect upon the eyes is searing, particularly when set against the Swarovski-encrusted demo area in which Samsung was showing the two devices off.

Anyone with Liberace's taste would love these eyesores — discomfort be damned.
