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!


Mine mine mine. Well it would actually be my wife's if I got it. She leaves me with the scrappy stuff. Go luck to all.

Now then time to go hire a body guard... I can feel that I'm going to win this one

@realwilliamlees has followed @Goldgenie! A gold plated HTC One would be smashing!

I showed this to my wife, who is a lover of all things golden, and she said she'd divorce me if I didn't enter to win this for her.

Would go good as a companion to my current HTC one. ONE for work, gold ONE for play!

The phone is already stellar, and the gold just took this to amazing. #allgoldeverything
@Gogetemb and maybe I get a follow back on twitter.

@goldgenie - do you have an IG?

Wow - it would look great next to my silver HTC One and it would match my gold Honda Prelude.

Such a badass HTC one. Really hope I can get my hands on it :)

@MikeDafGolf Hope I win! I just recently became an Android user and would love to win this!

I really need this to ball out with my homies.

Oh, gotta get me some gold. So, if you have the HTC One Gold, you just couldn't ever put a cover on it, right?

Haha whaaaat. Gold HTC one. I'll try for this. Following goldgenie on Twitter. My username is JCMcChampion.

Hope I win :)

Sometimes our circumstances such as having luxury changes the way we feel about ourselves, and it helps us live differently. I don't know if owning a phone like this would change the way I approach life, but if I won it, I'd find out. Maybe it'd help me be more generous.

This would be awesome. One of a kind. I might have to attach it to a ring and propose to my gf with it :)

You've found it android central... After all these years, by God so many years, you've found it... This is what can finally get me off Verizon!

Hmmmm babyyy!! This one is Sa-WEEETTT! May my dream come true to have this exclusive phone in my pocket! It will set the mood right each day when I see this beauty! I like to wear unique clothes. So I defenitly like to have a unique HTC One ! wauw! gimme gimme gimme that! ^^

I would love to have this...though I'd probably NEVER take it out of the house xD.

I'll be more than happy if I could win a regular HTC ONE, but to have a chance to win this beauty, wow.I wonder Who will be the lucky one?

Yep.... Please let me win this... Wait, so people who beg usually win these things? I don't know... I just know I want it... But if I did have one, would I put a case on it? What would be the point having one of I did? I could not show off the beautiful gold!

You wouldn't want to go for a walk in the ghetto with this on your ear though, lol.

This sweet piece of engineering got sweeter. Looking forward to see who wins this.

I wonder if this will be a fingerprint magnet. Hopefully I get the chance to find out :-)

Pick me, pick me. (I'll love you forever, or as long as the phone lives, possibly longer, I'll be the HTC envy of them all!) Oh, pick me pick me.

I signed up for Twitter just for this, so hopefully I don't end up hating it. Also, I'd love to get that gold phone! Gimmmeeee!

I'm not sure it would be my daily driver, but it would be awesome to have for special occasions.

I would be the coolest up coming rapper if I had this. Lol I followed both Android Central and Goldgenie on Twitter. Wish me luck!!!

I have the S4 and I regret it. I need the HTC One. Puhlease!!!!

Follow and tweet done. . . now just a bit of a wait til my name is pulled on Monday. Happy long weekend AC fans!

Steal away into that way back when
You thought that all would last forever
But like the weather
Nothing can ever...and be in time
Stay gold

I would give this phone to my wife in exchange for not having to buy new bags from Michael Kors every few months!

I'd love to win this! How about some luck for a military man?! Air Force all the way! Thanks Android Central and Goldgenie! AIRPOWER!

wow.... it could be the best phone on earth up o to today. would love to have one :)

Just wow. I'm a BlackBerry Z10 user and I love that phone but this is just... wow. Convenient how I'm watching a Bond movie on the 007 sky channel, shame it isn't goldfinger though :(

I would really like to win this phone. I have had my G2x now for two years. I had to root it the moment I received it due to support issues from LG. It gives me constant problems. I have been looking into getting a new phone. But because I'm a part time student and a full time dad it just isn't feasible right now. I would be truly grateful to have this phone. Thank you for your consideration.

If I could somehow win this for my wife she would never put me in the dog house again. Please pick me.

I would really really love to have one of these.. I love my HTC One, but I would really love to have one in gold!

The best Android hardware coated with the best material. It can't get any better than that.

I would use this to break the chains of Verizon and go prepaid. Use my overpriced phone to escape overpriced service.

Posted via Android Central App

I always use a case but I'd have to just be extra careful so I could always show this off! Opulence and bleeding edge. Can't get better than that.

hey thanks. nice contest.

hope to win this jewel.

following on twitter

Thank you to both groups for allowing us a chance to win a new phone. I have been on the brink of "retiring" my Samsung GS2 for months now! Hopefully I can win this and move into the new phone era!!

I'd be too afraid to use this phone. The fear of scratching it or bring mugged. Worth the risk IMO :-)

Count me in on this! Nice!! Imagine this thing running a gold-themed CM10.1. Hmmm.
