It's easy but hypocritical for anyone with a current flagship smartphone to point at someone else's device and cry 'bad taste'. From a certain perspective all this super high-end, ultra expensive tech is vanity. We're all in the gutter, etc.

But seriously - a Swarovski crystal edition Galaxy S5?

Pocket-Lint points us to a new edition of the excellent Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship set to be released in May with a rear case covered in crystals.

The 'Crystal Edition' will be released in South Korea , following a similar Note 3 special edition released last year.

There are not other details so far, such as price or the mental state of anyone who would use one of these things. But it could be worse, we suppose.

Much worse.
