No, they aren't lying.  So long as the definition of 18K is that 75% of the mass is pure gold, and Apple gold fits that definition, they are telling the truth.
That photo was of my 5 year old OLED phone screen, not a TV. A study of what?  Samsung have introduced new OLED tech and processes every single year for at least the last 6 years.  Did this study look at and measure Samsung OLED screens as used in their phones?  Because that is the topic of discussion.  Just earlier today I was reading something about this issue - pre-dated this thread - and came across a discussion relating to OLED TVs and the conclusion was their...
The bullshít is so thick you can smell it 2K upwind.
Will photos do - like the one I provided above, taken literally a few minutes before posting?    This blue fade seems to be an urban myth as far as I can tell.  Reminds me of the 'don't get a Panasonic Plasma TV' brigade 'because of the screen burn-in yo'.  I have one of those too.
Yes, but if you go into the settings and choose the professional photo mode the colours are as accurate as an iPhone 6, so you are looking a bit desperate there. http://www.anandtech.com/show/9111/samsung-galaxy-s6-and-s6-edge-preview/3
Blues worn out in 2 years you say.  Here is a 5year old Samsung OLED: 
Has anyone noticed that Samsung seem to be favouring some Microsoft products and services on the S6 rather than Google's offerings?  One Note, Skype, One Drive.   I would hardly call One Drive bloat ware when you get 115Gb of free storage with it for 2 years.   Might be fun to have an S6 Edge and install windows 10 on it if that ROM Microsoft have developed gets out.
I took that into account I think.  To be able to call the gold 18K 75% of it has to be actual gold by weight.  Apple Gold has ceramic particles that are low mass compared to gold and the more usual alloy metals like silver and copper so only abot 50% of the volume of the Edition case is actually gold. Asia is a very gold conscious region.   India and Thailand in particular have quite a thing for gold.  I am very curious as to how the Edition will be received in Asia if the...
 I would agree that the gold in the gold band should be taken into consideration when talking about the $17 K version, but the watch only weight seems valid for considering the base model Edition. 2:  I delegated the calculation to my son.  I gave him the weights of the two watches (69g and 30g)  and the densities of Gold and Aluminium at 19.3 and 2.8 respectively.  He then solved for the two unknowns of the weight of the non case parts and the volume of the case,...
I wasn't talking about the bands.  I had some caculations based on the weight of the edition vs the weight of the equivalent sport (these are given on  Apple's web site), taking into account the watering down of the gold by 50% by volume with ceramic.  Looks like I was too generous. http://www.forbes.com/sites/anthonykosner/2015/03/08/apple-watch-edition-will-not-be-worth-its-weight-in-gold-but-could-start-at-2999/
