The easiest contest to win a Gold HTC One!
If i win this Gold Phone, should i use it?
Thanks Android Central :)


After entering all the android contest, I can actually say that I feel like this phone is mine. I need to win this.

FAB prize! id be the coolest granny on the block with this! following @GoldGenie on twitter.X

Winning this would just blow my mind. I'll probably have to give it to my wife though once she sees the amount of shine coming out of my pocket.

omg thats so sweet <3 the one whos gonna get it will look like a porn star xD nevertheless looks kinda awesome on the One

I'd do anything to own this !!!!!! So incredible and today is my birthday !!! Would be the greatest gift ever

I would probably get mugged but its still worth it.

I was disappointed when knew that htc one is coming late to be released in my country because of it's stock, so i have to spend my money to another.
After seeing this, i hope i have this perfect one. Nice combination of luxury gold from goldgenie and elegant HTC one..

This particular item of blingage might give me the leverage I need to impress -insert A-list Hollywood celebrity here- and get her to take her clothes off. Hmmm...

That has to be better than my metro pcs CoolPad...what I wouldn't give for just a stock HTC One!

Having this would be something else!

This is pretty incredible. I wouldn't know whether to use it or keep it in the box...

Ooh, awesome! I've been wanting an HTC one for quite a while and this one looks super neat! I'd love to win! Thanks for having such a wonderful contest!

I'll take two please but since you're just giving one away I would appreciate that as well.

Give me give me give me, I need I need.

I would love to have this so I could give it to my vrother when he comes home from overseas for leave from the army..I think it would show appreciation.

I love gooooooold.
Although, I'm more interested in having a sweet HTC One.
Thanks for the giveaway Android Central!

Dang, my wife would love this phone.... I Want to win! This would be an awesome Anniversary Gift!

I followed them on Twitter and even said Hi from you and me. Hopefully I'll be the lucky winner of this gorgeous phone !

a sleek phone becomes the sleekest phone! *droooling* over this Gold HTC One

I can't imagine what it'd feel like to carry a couple grand around in my pocket.
I guess I'll find out if I win!

nice. This would be pretty flashy. I haven't left any comments on here in a while but I was bored and saw this so thought it was worth a shot!

I wanted the HTC One before... now they throw bling on it?!?!?! I wonder if the gold affects receptions? You know what... who cares?

I would love to win this phone. Especially since yesterday was my birthday!! It would be the best gift ever!!!! I'm already considering buying it soon, but this would look soooo much better in my hands =D

Just one word. Bling Bling Baby !!
No wait that's 3 words
Well, doesn't really matter !! I could say a 1000 words but I still won't be able to appreciate this masterpiece enough <3 <3 HTC

Wow, amazing phone. Would be great to win and be able to throw out my old Sony Ericsson phone.

I want one!
I don't suppose the value will appreciate/depreciate according to current gold prices, though? :p

A gold plated phone? Correction, not just any phone, the majestic HTC this is something I would love to have.

For my last Wish GoldGenie, I would like a 24-Carat HTC One please. Thanks. :)

Help me make a difference in Education. Allow me the opportunity to incorporate this marvelous device in Education Technology and share with the world, instructions geared to its use. Thanks in advance HTC

I love my HTC One, and I think a Gold one could get my wife on board and away from her iPhone 5. ;-)

This might be the coolest thing I've ever seen. Please pick me so I can show off this bling in my neighborhood. My Sprint Optimus S is getting dated!

Hey give me a second, my phone is blinging!! :) I think this would be a device NOT to put a case on! Either way I'd like to get my hands on this.

WOW!!!! Would be great listening to the "Golden Oldies" on that sweet sounding phone!!

Awesome give away guys! Thanks so much for all the freebies you guys offer :)

I have not a clue as to what would I do with it, maybe just use it when I am wearing my 007 black suit...

I'm just thinking of all the women that would flock to me if I had this phone. lol. I might need more than just a phone.

Will feel like Scrooge McDuck,carrying the phone around...what a moment that will be...carrying the phone to office and people will go gosh.. what a phone.. dontknow HTC Makes such kind og phone.... Promotion guaranteed this year... ;)

Followed them on Twitter... Now I'll be happy to take that beauty off your hands :)

This phone would be great, and when it breaks, you can always sell it for scrap, hahahaha. 24K gold is definitely a step up from my plastic gnex.

Android Central!

How do you make a already beautiful device better??? Cover it in gold! The 10 year old tech geek who also wants to be a rapper in me has a huge smile right now! So is the 30 year old one!

Wow. Indeed a great prize. Great phone.
Looking forward to be the proud owner of this HTC One.

Wow, what an unexpected prize to win in a contest!

Thank you for this, I'm entering :)

That would be a cool phone to have. Must have a little more weight to it thanks to the gold.
