Last chance: Win a 24-carat Gold HTC One from Goldgenie and Android Central!



Android Central!
You Guys never cease to amaze me, the changes are nice. I have to say this is one of the most extreme Prizes yet! It would really be sweet to tell my friends I won one this 24K Gold HTC One from Android Central and Goldgenie!
Thanks for making if possible!!

Well the HTC One is a phone of the last now, the future is the Gold HTC One. Here is to the future and to hopefully picking up this bad boy!

What an amazing contest. Even if I don't win thank you android central for hosting this :). Good luck to all! I hope I win though :P

If I won one of these, it'd be quite....shiny #firefly
Thanks for the chance for something mighty fine!

I cheerfully began following @goldgenie today, and I mentioned @AndroidCentral as well. Oh for the joy of possibly owning that gold HTC One. I would sing of its virtues from the rooftop. I would tell it on the mountain. I would sing about it on the subway and in the schoolyard, for it is crafted with love, yes! HTC One

I'd love to win this for my girlfriend. She lost her S III a few months ago and she's been using a beat up BlackBerry since then.

Are you serious? You're giving away a GOLD Phone? If I win, whenever I pull out my phone, I'd have to do a Goldmember impression: "I LOVE GOLD!!!!"

Now this is an awesome looking phone! Sure would be nice to win one of these.

What the hell. I'm in. Oh, and I'm @drewbot2000 on Twitter, just so you know I'm playing by the rules.

WOW Android Central just keeps trying to give and give. Can't believe what they are contesting to readers. I think it would be awesome to have not only a HTC ONE but a GOLD HTC ONE! Wow

Oh wow. I'm impressed.
Just when I thought the HTC One couldn't get any better.
I WANT THIS. (I wonder if goldgenie would dare do a drop test of this.) :p

would like to have a bite of the gold plated HTC ONE.I would use it as jewelry rather than a smartphone.

The Nexus 4 is my personal phone, and the Galaxy S3 is my work phone. I could make the HTC One Gold my formal phone.

Funny you should say that... I was thinking the theme from Goldfinger would make a very fitting ringtone.

I have to say, I'm a pretty big fan of GOLD. This would compliment my Mr T starter kit very well.

Pick me, pick me! This shiny phone would fit me perfectly! :D

My twitter account is @Brian078, to check that I am following @Goldgenie and @androidcentral.

I love the level of detail in there work. I saw the platinum and the Rose gold editions as well. All of them are great. I would love to win this phone.

So this morning I thought it was cool that Engadget was giving away an HTC One....then I come to find out you're giving away a gold one!!!! Way to one up them! (Or in this case 24k up them)

This is legend..... wait for it......hope you are not lactose intolerant...... Dairy (legendary)........ thanks for the giveaway

This would compensate for what I lost in that horrible smelting accident. I luf gooollldd!

James Bond will have the golden HTC One in his next film and it will have all the trick apps on the phone to launch the rockets, drive the car and all other tricks.
Following under @houram

I would love to win the best phone ever now with the best hardware ever! Please!

I really want an HTC One, gold plated even better. Then i can pretend to be that russian dude from the direct tv commercials, Oppulence, i have it!

I will sell my soul for this phone. I love Htc, I love the Htc one & a golden one would be perfect!

Freaking would love this! This would make my next few years! Thanks for the giveaway guys!

@cleardust following @Goldgenie, was planning to get the htc 1 google edition i guess will wait it out wth my cracked S2 for a bit longer you never know :)

I want one!! Will definitely have to hide it in a case sometimes.. but hey idc I want it! The One is a nice phone!

Probably shouldn't leave this one on my desk when I step away to the bathroom..... Maybe a teather is due when I win it.

If I won this, I wouldn't know if I should use it, display it, keep it on my desk as an expensive wifi device or weld a gold chain to it..

If I fold the corner of this post, would it be easier to pick me out of the bunch for the Gold Phone? hahaha


I would love to stunt on all my friends and family with this beautiful beast of a phone.

Stuck on GB at the moment and I haven't decided on which phone to get. I guess this gold HTC wouldn't be a bad choice. :D

I would love to win this gold HTC one. I would cherish it like a baby and take it everywhere I go.
