Red HTC One

'Glamor red' HTC One launches exclusively at Phones4u, available on contract

Right on schedule, the "glamor red" HTC One is now available to purchase from Phones4u in the UK. The retailer, which has exclusivity over the red HTC One in the UK, is offering the device on contracts from Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and EE starting at £31 per month. Right now there's no way to pick the phone up off-contract online — although brick-and-mortar P4U stores are often more accommodating to SIM-free buyers.

The red HTC One is — you guessed it — the same aluminum-backed phone we know and love, only with a different and more eye-catching coat of paint. Unfortunately there's still no official info on any plans to launch the red variant outside of the UK.

The red is lovely.
A Red & Black AOSP Theme on this phone would be SICK!

I like the red one but already owning it in silver isn't going to make me buy another, but it could sway a younger audience from something else.

The Red HTC One is also available in Taiwan yesterday.
But I am really waiting on Butterfly S picking up by US carriers.

I like the red but I think it would look better black with red accents. Solid red is too overpowering for a daily driver. IMO

With the red (and black as well) is it just a coat of paint? i.e. if you scratch it do you get the same aluminum color underneath?

If so the "glacial silver" would seem superior in that a scratch would not show up as much.

Though maybe you can get those kits people use for cars to "remove" scratches...

For some reason I think you would be more likely to get a ticket for texting with this phone than with the other colors.

This is exactly what I was thinking. You're the first person I've seen say this about the phone. If I got one scratch on the phone it would be all I see when looking at it. Just like a car..Nice ticket joke Haha!

I doubt it will scratch, just like the black ones don't. You CAN scratch them if you try really hard, or do stupid shit with them though. You can scratch anything, but the anodized aluminum is harder to scratch than a car. Not knowing what your ride looks like, I won't say it won't likely get scratched if you buy one, but my black one is holding up perfectly.

I've knocked and dropped it a few times. Can't really see any huge scratches, only a small dint in the upper corner. Surprised at how durable it is.

Certainly stands out from the crowd. I'd have to see one in person before forming an opinion though

The first look at the Verizon One. Nah I really don't know by can for sure see this on V. Notice of days exclusive to them in UK so Verizon can still get it. Either way I think I will pass, just didn't like the feel of it in my hand.

That's a sexy ass red phone. I like red and black, but usually haven't liked red phones...but that one is nice. I actually don't like the black HTC One, but love the silver, and now this.

It is looking beautiful but color wouldn’t matter because it's time of cover cases, user can give any colorful look to the device.
