Now, the fine print:

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


Well, in all honesty - I want this phone because it looks extremely cool, and I'm talking even without the gold. I'm mostly here for the phone itself, even though it would be so undescribeably amazing to actually have one of these!

But as always, this is a single giveaway, so you REALLY gotta be lucky!
Congratulations to the one extremely lucky winner of this beautiful device! :)

If I win this, my spouse will be jealous. Her black One will look dull next to this.

Nevermind the phone, the box it comes in is AWESOME! :D
I don't know why, but I really like wooden boxes with stuffz insides... :3
Hope I'm not too late for you guys to pick me :D

The novelty of owning this would be awesome. Also, how fun would it be to say, "I own a phone worth more than my car."? :-D

For the 1st time I would NOT use a case! I LOVE GOLD!!! (pinky to corner of mouth)

Thanks for the contest, guys! I've read the review and played around with it at the store and it has such a beautiful screen, is very responsive and smooth, and has the build quality that you've come to expect from HTC. A gold one just is icing on the cake.

This HTC One looks amazing. Good job Goldgenie and thanks to Android Central for this awesome giveaway.

I'm in. Will need a sparkly case for trips without my security detail. Actually maybe the Gold is a better decoy for this amazing phone.

It's amazing, a powerful android device and a finest piece of jewellry.

This phone is sick. I'd never sell it, I might keep it in a safe, but I wouldn't dream of selling it. Actually, I'd have to use it, if not just to show it off. I never win anything, so I'd have to use it just to show everyone my amazing new prize. Did I mention how sick this phone is?

That is an amazing phone, your giveaways rock! Not sure if I could take this out of the house if I won though. Good chance at getting mugged if I make a phonecall.

I never wear jewelry... Would this count? Haha

If I win, is it a crime to put a case on it? What if it's a 24k case?

Dude if I won this, James Bond's Goldfinger theme would so be my ringtone. Beside why instagram when you can vine the hell out of it.
