HTC One is purty.

The Android Central (and Mobile Nations) community is made up of countless awesome people. Sometimes I think that amid all of the phone talk, carrier discussions, debates regarding bugs and build quality, and general techy banter, people forget that real live actual people are behind those words on the screen. I think that's why I really enjoyed last week's contest for the AT&T HTC One. We decided the requirement for entry was to post a video of you doing your favorite hobby or showing your talent, and the entries were amazing!

Now, we couldn't judge these entries and choose who was the "best". It was never meant to be that kind of contest. So we've put all the eligible entries into our magical contest winner picker machine and you can find out the name of that lucky Android Central member is below!

The winner of a shiny new HTC One from AT&T is:

Volkrik

Congratulations Volkrik! We'll be in touch soon to get you squared away. Be sure to head over to the contest thread and check out some of the other fun hobbies and talents your fellow Android Central-ites have.

And if you didn't win this time, don't despair! We always have contests underway here at Android Central!

Thanks for the the announcement of the winner of the AT&T HTC One contest. But i wonder so soon Michelle Haag and her colleague can judge and announce the winner also.

Hey Congratulations Volkrik. Enjoy the HTC One.

"Do you live on planet Earth? You may enter this contest." that's the sentence which assured some person to enter into this type [Show us your talent or hobby and you could win an AT&T HTC One!]of competition. Talent and Hobby both can be same and cane be different also.

By the way, Thanks a lot androidcentral to arrange such type of contest, because this is very exciting and fun too.

WOW! Excellent voice and keychanges and vibrato...etc. Couldn't have happened to a nicer chap - animated Robin Hood. Oh and to the sore loser who said

get over yourself! when you have the guts to get up there and belt out a time honored song then we can talk....by the way, why should he not choose a church song? He is going to bootcamp so he is Patriotic not hard to understand. Be safe out there brother!

@P8TRIOT

Thanks in advance.

Volkrik says:
