    Does anyone else get shocked by static electricity when unlocking their iPhone 5S? My Golden iPhone 5S seems to do this quite regularly, especially when I'm at work and returning to my desk after being up and around.

    Home doesn't seem to be as much of a problem as most of our house is tile or laminate flooring. Only the bedrooms are carpeted, and we have some area rugs in the living room and family room.

    It's that gold, man. Precious metal has its downsides. :)

    Of that there is no doubt. But the punishment is not too bad. I think I can take it.

    Lower humidity levels / heating etc... At work? Static charges and electronic devices don't play well together usually. I would try and find something to discharge myself on before messing with my iPhone. Metal desk, co workers ear or nose... You get the idea :D

    It's been a dry and windy Nov where I live and my wife's phone shocked her rather badly the other day. It was definitely audible and I could tell it hurt...

    The phone lived though.

    FYI it was a white iPhone 5.
