Yup, don't want to be seen in public with this where I live - it's a good way to get killed, with all the nasty thugs roaming my neighborhood.

I usually keep my phone in a pocket to itself, not sure what id do with something as incredible as this.... possible clone myself and have him with the soul purpose of safe guarding it. Now if you will excuse me while i Google cloning....

These phones look great stock, and absolutely stunning in gold or platinum. It's nice that there's finally an Android phone with a fit and finish that makes this worthwhile.

Need this for the wife 5th anniversary is coming up and her HTC one S is on the way out.

I'd get a chain and wear it like a medallion while doing Trinidad James impressions.

Wish you guys Good work here in androidcentral and keep it up with your articles. Man I've seen the reviews of HTC one and it is so awesome. It's features and omg its design. i wonder how it looks with the 24 carat gold cover. I hope i'll be the lucky one to win it. ^_^

I would love to have this. It would mean so much after such a bad luck streak.

I wanted to say that android central and goldgenie rocks and I will be a very happy person if I luckily get picked after surviving hurricane sandy last year.

I will be the happiest man alive in universe if I get this one! *Crossing fingers*

It's covered in gold?
How bright and how bold!
But oh what a price tag
Or so I am told

Yet I heard that I can
With a wee bit of luck
Have this One in my hand
For not even a buck

So here is my comment
My entry to win
I followed on Twitter
And now wait with a grin

For I've had a sign
And sit perched on cloud nine
Cause I know that this gold One
Is already mine!

"Would you like a shmoke und a pancake? You know, a flapjack und a shigarette? No? Shigar und a waffle? No? Pipe und a crepe? No? Bong und a blintz? No? Well, then there ish no pleashing you."

This is the phone to die for, it's right out gorgeous... no wonder this company is doing great... really really want one in my life time..

Woah...most expensive giveaway ever on an android site ? o.O Would love to win :P

Awesome. I would cry from joy for days on end if I got my hands on the coolest phone around. The gold is just a bonus.

Want to get this to showcase in my videos and make ppl aware of the Goldgenie...thanks alladin

This contest is pure gold. Well, 24k anyway.

As Marty McFly would say: "HEAVY!"

I think the HTC One is THE successor of the HTC HD2 and with the new glamour from goldgenie it became even better.

New to Android here. Winning a gold HTC would be a great way to Start!

Posted via Android Central App on my Note 2!

I never win anything, but hey, worth a shot. Haha @mikeullar. Followed and commented :)

In a year of highs and lows' more lows than highs! Winning this give away would be a first and would definitely be a "Golden" moment in my life! See how I did that? Lol

HTC One? Sweet.
Gold Plated HTC One? Bonus.
Maybe I'll be getting an upgrade this year.

Would be nice to have but I'd probably stare at this phone whole day long. Still want it though, who wouldn't.

This would be an awesome honor to be picked for. If you go another direction I'll take the silver one. :)

I know there is no way I am winning this, but wouldn't ming adding an HTC One to my collection. Already have the Samsung Galaxy 4.

This would be a great 24 carat gold ring to win for my girlfriend ;) how could she say no this kind of proposal?

What a fantastic giveaway! Thank you Goldgenie and Android Central!

Wow I'd def' love this one! It'd be a great upgrade from my one x. Count me in!

Pick me Phil. We can split the proceeds 50/50

Wow, it would be amazing to win this phone, I am unfortunately still using an iFail 3!1

In my absolute best Austin Powers Goldmember Voice...

*Ahem*.. "I love GGOOOLLLLLDDDDDD....."

*Bow's and walks out of room*

I've probably got a better chance of getting hit by a bus, but what the heck.
Count me in!

As the old saying goes, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take".

Just for the fact of walking around talking with a gold brick next to my head. At least I don't live in Chicago or some other city where I'd get shanked for it within 5 minutes. I just live in Austin, where I'd be judged for not having a recycled phone

This is an awesome prize and I would love to win. GOLD wow!!!! I do believe I need this! lol

I don't know if I enter correctly, so here I go again
