"We are delighted to welcome HTC's flagship phone the HTC One to the Goldgenie family. It is an extremely powerful phone with a beautiful interface & is a guaranteed jaw dropper when people see it embellished in Gold."

Now, the fine print:

  • To enter to win this 32-gigabyte, 24-carat gold-plated HTC One, you need to do two things: The first is to follow @goldgenie on Twitter. Maybe tell 'em we say hi, too. 
  • Second: Leave a comment on this post. It's that easy.

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


In it to win it! Love HTC! I've had the Evo 4g, Evo 3d, Evo 4g lte, and just purchased the HTC One!

My first step would be to take a picture of me biting it to make sure it was real gold. ;)

If I win it I'd have to sell it, because I care too much about my life to use such a sweet looking phone on the street. Or maybe I'll give it a chance. But let's win it before making assumptions :P

This Phone is a beast I hope I win. Please follow me @samIanalyze

That's a mighty fine looking HTC One :)
Best looking droid just got bling

Heh, not sure if I'd ever take it out in public, but I'd most definitely have a use for it. Best of luck to everyone.

I'm in for a chance to win. "Gold around his neck, 8-ball rollin', gold around his neck, 24/7" (it's from an old Sir Mix-a-Lot song in case you don't know where that came from).

This is it. Congrats to the would-be winner. I hope it would be (wait for it) ME. Thanks! LOL

I want this so bad!! My current device runs on gingerbread, lame. Maybe I should leave it sealed so it wont lose its value lol.

I would wear this like a necklace. Flava flav!

Wow, this is an amazing giveaway! Followed~

I really hope I win this... I've never won a random giveaway before :p

wow this is very nice price.
much more than normal htc one
hopefully i can win it

Wonder if the gold interferes with cell signal.(or enhances). Either way that concept is pretty sweet. Nice to see the other phones are getting after market loving and not just the iphone like all other bandwagon jumpers. Good on you.

Great giveaway! The phone looks amazing but it is a little bit dangerous to use it in the dark corners of the town :D

Certainly, not taking outside in my country, but heck, let me win it first....!

If this'd be the first prize I win from AC, I'd use it to finance my education...

Goldplated Phone.. is definitely an asset.

This would be an awesome upgrade from my Samsung BlackJack2... and looks a whole lot sweeter!!

Golden ONE!
Two thumbs up to Goldgenie & Android Central

I had never put my hands on htc one and when i saw that you guys are giving it away and that too in gold its jaw dropping news I'm so positive and i want to win this....

That's some prize - I guess HTC stands for... (H)edonistic (T)wenty-four (C)arat - gives a whole new meaning to making an expensive call. Great prize, be lucky.

This is just too amazing a chance to pass up! Birthdate is coming up anyway lol so is Christmas and whatnot

I need a new phone so bad its not even funny!! I've also never won anything in my life, not even Bingo in elementary school class!! :-/ Please pick me!!!

Great design, great processing power and great build quality with the best material, all in One.

Please say hi to Goldgenie from me.
Love their take on HTC One, it's a brilliant idea to even give more value to an already AWESOME smartphone!

I am not on Twitter, don't care for it, don't need it.
Can I win this anyway? Not begging though.

If I win I better get a body guard to protect me everytime I whip that bad boy out ;-) haha

This phone would be great for me :) I have now old Samsung Galaxy 1, and I need now one, this would be such a good thing for me.

Happy Fourth of July! Give a good guy this phone! =) I promise I won't sell it. I would feel like James Bond with this thing.

Well it's a long shot but I thought I would try....

Hopefully I will win...

Keep up the good work guys.....

oh WOW !!!!

I can only think at this moment one better prize than that: A Google Glass!

So yeah... I want a 24K gold HTC One !!!!

Man the trouble i've been going through just to get hold of a HTC One in black has been a nightmare... 4 times i've been refused by network providers for reasons unknown... This would be an amazing turn around wining this >_<

You also my daily read, keep up the good work! <3

It'd be great to see that brand new htc one in my hands while i'm still using my old and laggy ZTE Blade, poor me.

"That's gold, Jerry, gold" now that's out of the way. I can't imagine having to explain to someone that my phone (when I win) is 24kt.

I just didn't think that it was possible to make this smartphone look any better...

I was really, really wrong!

gold... Gold... GOLD... yes, give it me meeeee. Then I'll have them plate the phone in unobtainium! It will all be mine!!! Um, I have a question: Will this void the warranty?

I've just lost my 1,5 Month old HTC One at a festival... the fucker who found it would not take the call. didn't bring it ot lost&found... :( winning this phone would really really cheer me up! :)

I wants! It would be so cool to have a silver as well as a gold HTC one :))))

Wow, to be able to own something5 that sweet would be freakin' awesome!

Amazing! That's the most beautifully built smartphone I have ever seen!

So the phone is sexy as hell!!!! And I should have it, PLLLLLEEEEEEAAAAASSSSSSEEEEE!!!!!

Unbelievable!!! One of the most awesome giveaway i've ever seen! Just love everything about HTC One. Want this badly!

This phone would turn me into Batman! I will patrol the city every night

Here's to hoping! Awesome way to kick off the summer season....that gold is so damn serious....

This is just epic. If I win this, I'll faint. Haha, just joking. Good luck to everyone! Lovely giveaway! :)

I'm already planning to switch to Android. This phone can really be a great start if I win.

I always try to win a regular phone... this time will be diferent...

Ah man, what are the chances??? =O

A simply breath taking phone which is no longer quietly brilliant! Goldgenie has elevated the HTC One sublime and stunning.

Uh oh, Hoping to win! If you prefer I take the One and leave you the scratched gold from it! :-D

A seriously epic phone! I can imagine the reactions from people seeing this thing. Would LOVE to have this beast ridding in my pocket!

Now I can finally have a more expensive phone than my iPhone loving wife.

Even after getting totally burned by the HTC Thunderbolt, I'm still an HTC loyalist and would already have preordered the HTC ONE Google edition if I had the extra $600 lying around. This is a great give away. As always, keep up the great work. The AC app is my first stop every morning.

Let's see if the luck is on my side this time. That's an awesome piece of tech-art!

Really amazing looking phone, huge fan of HTC just by the way. Absolutely stunning phone, hopefully I win this cause I'll never be able to afford it. Lol, well done guys.

Woah this is one of the best competitions i have seen in a looooooooong time wow <3

What a prize! It would be nerve racking using it though....or dropping it. I mean you can't have a case on the GoldOne

Loved the comments comparing it to the ring of power from Lord of the Rings. Sign me up, though. Never had bling before. Or used tge word bling in a sentence.
