Gold HTC One

OK, boys and girls. You've marveled over the 24-carat gold-plated HTC One — now it's time for you to win one of your own.  Yes, we're teaming up with Goldgenie to bring this one-of-a-kind Android smartphone (valued at $2,403/£1895) to one lucky Android Central reader.  Here's what Goldgenie founder and CEO Laban Roomes had to say when his company announced the gold phone last week:

"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."

And now, we're delighted to announce we're working together to give one away. Read on for the full details, and click here to learn more about the 24-carat gold-plated HTC One and Goldgenie's HTC One customization service.

Update July 8: We've closed the comments and will pick a winner shortly. We've got your winner right here, let's all wish him the best!

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.
  • A winner will be picked at random.

Good luck, and thanks to Goldgenie for making one Android Central reader very, very happy.

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



It would be the first time the Mrs. would ever have an interest in the kind of mobile phone I am carrying.

This is incredibly beautiful, a gift that surly belongs to my wife, a huge android fan she is.

One phone to rule them all, One phone to find them,
One phone to bring them all and in the darkness bind them...
hmmm...the power of the PRISM :)

So I'd never heard of such a thing as a gold plated phone other than like custom one offs, but it looks cool. That said I'd have to get a clear skin of some sort because I'd hate to hide that awesome color but I need a skin or case for protection.

I could imagine how much this phone weighs. But who cares. Its made of gold!

This would be a great phone for me to show off around Vegas! Especially at the Wynn where appearance is everything.

ANDROID CENTRAL IS AWESOME!!!! OK now that I have your attention, I just want to say that this phone should definitely belong to me. There is no reason to look at the other comments, this one is mine. Its time I win something! twitter handle @_dlewis_

So would you be able to bite through the, at least do the old 'gold-bite' test on it?
I'm in either way!

First contest I've ever tried on here. Sweet phone!

If I win this phone, it will be super neat and I will be very excited! Girls will HAVE to like me if I win this phone, so yeah, make it happen please :)

Wow. I joked in my head about you guys doing this, but I didn't think you actually would! Go AC and goldgenie!!!

Don't think I will be taking this one overseas... But if I win it then it will definitely have the best home possible! I'd shine it and polish it and use the living crap out of it everyday! Unless of course the woman tried to steal it from me, that would suck...

Now this would be a cool phone to win. Good luck to all!

Very nice indeed. I hope I won't be robbed when I get this. I should get some karate lessons...

this is awesome. I would love to win this one. Would make a great birthday present for me

My heart might have skipped a beat or two seeing this. But I'm cringing at the idea of having to make a Twitter account just to enter.

Oh man, gold HTC one. Now I can be a bond villian, or at least a power ranger. Lol!!

I can be the new gold member with this phone if Austin Powers makes another remake. What a bad ass phone.

OMG this IS the grandest prize to EVER be announced! Hope I win! And good luck to everyone else! :D

Thank God for this contest. My rap career has been struggling as I lack this specific type of bling.

This is awesome! I love my regular HTC One, and this would just be over the top amazing!

Yes, but does it ble--...
Actually, I would cry if someone decided to try to blend this one. I want it!

I cannot think of any reason that I would want/need this except to say that I have a gold-plated phone, so count me in!

Beautiful version of the htc, not getting hopes up of winning, be amazing otherwise! Fingers crossed!

Done. I posted about @androidcentral on @goldgenie on Twitter. And I began to follow @goldgenie which looks quite interesting!

Porno Paule's perky penis pimp.

Honestly, is anyone going to buy this?
I even never want to win this... thing.

Great contest. Thanks for the chance to win this.

Im @mar_bet and Im a follower ;-)
I guess I would be the coolest guy in town with a gold-htc one :-)

I'll have to get my conceal and carry once I get win this beautiful device from Android Central and Goldgenie!! Thanks in advance. -Mark

I don't care if having this makes people want to beat me up and mug me... I want it bad.

Wow that is pretty sharp looking. I can just see me now, sitting at the coffee shop. Just imagine the comments.

I would do dirty things to have this phone...
I might even do dirty things to this phone...

Looks like Goldgenie found a neat way to increase twitter followers quickly, almost 2K already wow.

This would go perfectly with my diamond encrusted toilet seat (It chafes a little but you can really feel the value).

Tweeted that AC and GG are the best! :)

I can't wait to win this phone!!!!

Wow..that's pretty insane. I think the winner should be obligated to phtography themselves in matching attire!

Always keep trying to win never happens though. My gnex is dying and this would be amazing.

I just want to get the HTC One to replace my HTC G2.
I don't care if it is coated in gold, but hey it works.

It would be nice to win. Thank you for the opportunity!

This phone is going to make me feel like a rock star! I hope it can be set for the Sprint network, but no worries if it can't....give it to me anyway!

Will this work on Verizon?

How will they know that my twitter account is connected to androidcentral?


......Oh god. . So many people will enter. Can you guys like... look away let me win this one and you all can go win somewhere else please.

Sigh I need it so bad.

Oh boy, I can feel this One coming my way! But I'll give it to my girl, I'm too shy for this.

Wow, If I won this thing I wouldn't even consider a case I'd just flash this thing everywhere @cmurda00

Following on Twitter. I would love one of these. It's the techie equivalent of Saddam's gold AK-47s!

Beautiful device and great contest. Good luck to everyone. July 8 is my birthday so I'll have all my fingers crossed.

I'd have to get a gold grill too. Maybe even turn the phone into a necklace as well! #NerdBling

First things first. I wonder will State Farm insure this thing, once I win of course.

Freaking awesome contest! Great idea, AC & Goldgenie. Me winning also sounds like a great idea...

Followed them on Twitter and this is my comment entry! Lovely looking device.

Absolutely beautiful! My mom doesn't have a smartphone... never has. This would be an incredibly awesome way to start her out with one! Let's face it... it would be a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation anway! Well done, guys.

Okay, I'll gladly pay the income taxes on this one. IT"S GOLD!!!!!!!!!!! Let the random finger of fate smile upon me :))))

This is freaking sweet. Now if I win it do I use it or lock it in a display case so it doesnt get ruined?

I would to win this one of a kind gem!!! This is a cool enhancement to an already awesome device.

I've never won any of these contests, and I presume I never will. Ever.
But still, I try everytime I see one in hopes I just might, maybe, win...

But anyways, this is my comment/raffle. Goodluck self!
