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



Imagine the "Cool factor" of this phone when you wave it around, just like that. Hope I win :D

Such a pretty phone I saw the picture a few weeks ago and was amazed at it. I really think that HTC beats all other manufactures on build quality and this only makes a very nice phone even better.

This would be perfect to slap some C-3PO soundbytes onto!!! "Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately three thousand seven hundred and twenty to one!"

This is an awesome looking phone. Too bad I never have won any type of game of chance in my entire life, haha. Hope the winner enjoys the beauty of this device.

Oooo, i'd be the envy of everyone in my... well, my LIFE if I won this. Pick me! Pick meeeee!! :)

If you absolutely must give this away, I suppose I'll take it off your hands. Geez, what pain you guys can be dumping this stuff in our laps all the time.

/s - in case you thought I was bats**t crazy or something.

I want ittttttttttttttttttttt, please, Don't random, just pick me. Or random pick me, that would also work.

Hhmm would be a lovely birthday present for the 4th of July for me!

Well, if I win this, I'll have to buy me a Maybach, a Rolex, and maybe then a yacht to live on that's bigger than anything Jobs would have sailed on!

This is awesome. Thanks to Goldgenie and Android Central for this wonderful giveaway!

I hope to win the 24K HTC One. It would make for a wonderful anniversary gift.

My favorite color is Gold!

My favorite James Bond movie of all time is Goldfinger from 1964 based on Ian Fleming's Novel...

When I was little I used to hide the Gold and Silver Crayola Crayon from friends so they wouldn't damage them! :p

I also loved the Gold suits they wore in Lost in Space!

Gold Gold Luscious and Precious Gold!!!

I'm in...

P.S. why do you have to scroll to the bottom of the comments to add a new comment? Is there a new comment button at the top that I missed?

That would make a great anniversary gift for my wife of 18 years. July 1st 1995!thanks for your consideration!

That would be so awesome to win this! (Since I never really win anything, anywhere, this would be the ultimate prize!)

incredible, insane, awesome, crazy, eccentric,....
I could go on and on naming adjectives that come into my mind when I think about that phone!

Been thinking about getting a One, but a gold one sounds good to me!

This is by far one of the most uselessly expensive things I could ever dream to have

I never enter contests, but this prize is just too Damn good to pass up. Gold htc one! Crazy!

I have my wedding anniversary at the back end of July and this would be wonderful to give my Wife! And I will make a surprise video if I win as am sure my wife would be blown away to have this!!

One of the best phones on the market with added gold. The box and accessories are a nice touch.

I really want this even though I'm not sure I'd want to take it out in public.

Ahmmm...I would like to walk around with this gold brick to match my gold teeth...

I can't even imagine owning something like this but I guess I'll throw down a comment and hope for the best!

Even better than a gooooooold member. :-) I couldn't resist, once I finished my shmoke and a pancake

How many carrots are there in One? Surely 24 is a bunch too many. Then again one is nearly not enough. Hopefully they're not tough.

Bless me Goldgenie Android central thank you for making me along with the 2440 others for this one lucky feeling

This is what Monty Python and Indiana Jones where searching for all this time!! THE HOLY GRAIL OF ALL PHONES!!!

I've really been wanting the HTC One and now it's in gold. Amazing. It's already so hard saving up for the original HTC One and now it's in gold for such a high price! I really hope I win this. It'll be my dream to have one of the best phones, and in gold! @goldgenie @androidcentral Please!!!

Wow! You think SquareTrade will cover this at full value? Do me a favor AC random post picker, make me make this call to Nationwide to see if it falls under my tenants policy. May meed additional life insurance too using in public. ;)

Awesome...AC and Goldgenie teaming up on this is like match made in heaven...with lots of goldy-droids... :D

If I won this, it would be the first thing I have ever won! It would definitely be the best thing I'll ever win also! So excited just to have this small chance!

Oh wow! This thing is incredible looking... It would make a beautiful replacement to my old Options V, although I don't know how I could bring myself to use a gold phone.

The HTC One looks sleek in Gold. Definitely a wonderful collectible for anyone that wins it. Cheers!

This phone really says it all. I love the htc one but more so with its 24k back panel. Outstanding. Great phone.

If I win this phone, does it mean that I have to get gold teeth too? I just...I don't know if I would look as nice as others do with gold teeth.

I Like! AndroidCentral ... Thats marvelous. I've got one and would love to have a gold one.:-) posted in goldgenie as well. Go pick me. WoooW!!!!

OK, if I had one of these I might actually be willing to return to the living hell that is AT&T.

I need this! The question is do I root something made of gold!
