Want to get your hands on a phone fit for royalty?
If you've got £1,000 ($1,300) going spare, you could buy yourself a smartphone decorated with diamonds.
The Darling, which boasts a 360-degree camera for 'virtual reality' photos and video, was unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The decadent smartphone, which was designed by Chinese technology company ProTruly, has a 5.5-inch (14cm) screen, 13 megapixel cameras on both sides and a bizarre thermometer which can take your temperature without touching you.
Its in-built 360-camera takes photos in all directions and saves the results in globe-shaped image files.
These 360-degree globes can then be uploaded to YouTube and Facebook.

The Android phone features a 1080p display, a MediaTek processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
It also has a finger sensor on its back, a USB-C port on its side and a 3,560mAh battery.
The phone's two cameras protrude outwards from its champagne-coloured cover, which is finished with a strip of gold and four diamonds.

While the diamond-clad model costs around £1,000 ($1,300), a cheaper plastic-covered device is also available at close to £490 ($600).
Neo Zheng, a manager at the market research company International Data Cooperation, told China Daily that 'the device will probably not go mainstream at the moment'.
He predicted that 'duo camera smartphones equipped with augmented reality (AR) functions will hit the market first'.
