"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.
  • This one's open to everyone. Have at it!
  • And finally, we'll close down comments at noon EDT on Monday, July 8, 2013, so everyone's got plenty of time to enter.

This is one of the the most ridiculous things I have ever seen... but I want it so badly.

I know i'm not the only person who thinks the comment box should be at the top! lol

Gold is my favorite color and I need a replacement for my HTC EVO. This contest is right on time!

Wow, totally killer phone. Who wouldn't want this? I know I would treat it very nice.

How do you make the best steak better? Wrap it in bacon. How do you make the best phone better? Wrap it in gold, 'cuz bacon would be weird...

well this is something precious to own and I would give it to my daughter who is getting married as the last and wonderful present to crown a beautiful day ...

This is a phone that I would love to have and show off. To let others know that HTC is so hot that it's golden!

always LOVED HTC over anything else out there. Glad to see them back in the game!

I like turtles. And this freakin amazing phone. I'll break up with my non existent girlfriend for this.

My current HTC One is the best phone I've ever owned. I'd definitely be proud to show off a gold one! =)

Wooow this phone is CRAZY!!! I already have the HTC One..how cool would it be to own it in 24K Gold!!

I can't believe how awesome Android Central is! Not only do they have the best Android news but they give away golden phones? You guys rock!

I hope I have a tiny chance to win this!
I sure need a new phone. Lol

Anywho, this is a nice prize to anyone who wins it!!!! :p

I know everyone probably says this, but I would love to win this competition. I have never won a competition/giveaway for a phone or anything. I would truly be more grateful than you would ever know.

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant. I'm talking about the way this phone blinds of course. The craftsmanship is second to none, I'm sure. Please pick me to win, I'll treat it like a baby.

Oh snap is it late for comments?! I need this gold at the end of my rainbow... Everyone's always after me lucky charms... Gooooolllllld.

I still say that this is a sweet device, anyone who's willing to sell it is so wrong. I again would so show that one off. Lol.

My 3 week old black HTC one is at the repair center for peeling paint and HTC won't cover it!! Maybe the gold will be a bit tougher. You guys have the best prizes.

Would love to win it! This looks amazing! You always see those high dollar phones with old software versions... HTC on the other hand... Wow.

I'd love to rock a gold HTC one it would be amazing :) of course it would become a GPe tho :)

I really want and deserve one of these because all my friends have high end mobiles and I have a really bad one. Please give it to me. Thanx Android Central and Goldgenie. You guys are the best.

This is amazing. With all the smart phones coming out this year. This 24- carat HTC tops it all. This was an great one of a kind ideal to make one unique HTC different from the rest. Good Luck To everyone. I hope to win it but if I don't Congratulations to the lucky winner!!

This would literally make my life complete I love HTC and there phones I've always wanted one but couldn't afford one

This would be neat to have. I don't own a cellphone, but I've been thinking of getting one.

I really really want this... I would totally use this phone as a phone...

People think their Iphones are a fashion statement.THIS is the ultimate in designer wear.

I'd love to win this. I've wanted a new HTC phone since I had the Evo on Sprint. Pick me please!! :D

I've never owned an HTC, so it would be nice to try something different. Hey, if it's gold-plated, I'll not refuse that. Wish me luck.

Kind Regards,

My Friend has a 4 year old phone. Need this to bring him back from the dead!
