"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.

Comment frenzy for a gold HTC One. Would it have been the same for a lesser phone? I surely would have passed..

What if I say I'm not like the others?

Here's to good mojo and Android Central


I followed them. Thank you goldgenie and android central for holding this competition. I would love this phone.

Yes please! Thanks Phil! PLEASE :) I've been wanting the HTC One for my wife! And gold, shoot, I'll be getting laid every day for the rest of my life!

Following and Commenting. I think I am just crazy enough that I would use this as a daily driver.

This would be the best upgrade to my aging sensation, if I had this I could brag to my friend with a note 2 how much better mine is, and finally get him to stop talking about how much he spent on it.

Man, I feel like I was the last to know about this contest. Here goes nothing! Phone looks amazing!

You really blew me away this time Phil, gold plated HTC ONE? It's the tip of android-nirvana. Count me in please (:

My daughter would love for me to win this gold plated HTC ONE. That way she can trade up to my N4 from a hand-me-down myTouch 4G.

in my country, if i sell this phone i could live 3years or even start a small business. Simply this phone isn't for everyone.

The gold is nice, but I think the platinum one is nicer. Anyway... My wife just shattered her HTC ones screen and I know she would absolutely love this one as a replacement. :-D Me too.

Thats Is Just Beyond Awesome. I Know The Htc One Is A Great Phone And It Being Dip In Gold Makes It Even Better. I Would Love To Give This To My Gf Is Has Been Trying To Get The Htc One (She Is A Apple Fan) lol I Got Her To Change Her Mind About Android

This is downright redonculous. If stars align and I actually win, I may have to invest in a matching grillpiece. Sick phone, gold plated just makes it ever sicker. The case is pretty sweet as well. Cool contest, good luck Geeks. Thanks AC.

What a nice piece of equipment. I would cherish this forever.

Oh dear Phil, please let me have this phone.. I really can't afford the HTC One, and I would really love to replace my HTC Radar. I haven't won anything so far. If I have this it will make me really happy.. So please please please pick me :) if not the gold give me the regular HTC One. I really love the phone. Thanks in advance :)

My dream is to have a htc ... Really wanted to win a smartphone because I can not afford to buy. Know it's impossible for me to gain more'm here at Android Central for the third time trying to win a htc one.

This would be the first phone I wouldn't take out in public. I would definitely show my friends though.

Just when I was thinking my GNex was starting to feel dated. Perfect timing. GLHF all.
@Llethalas on twitter.

HTC One! Here I come. Good bye samsung. Now I would have to install a camera in my class room otherwise it might utilize that little unknown app called "take me home I'm free"

This phone will definitely get a lot of attention!
Thanks @goldgenie for making the HTC One even better!

This would be pretty kew! But do you guys know if we're following golgenie on twitter? I mean I followed them but i'm wondering how you make the connection? Do you pick the winner then here then ask us for our twitter name?

Or maybe following them on twitter isn't even part of the giveaway...

Amazing. I want want. Define tell can't afford it. It probably be afraid to touch it. But that won't stop me from using it.
