Way COOL looking HTC! Would love to win this one. Hope I do!

The winner is guaranteed to look ridiculous making phone calls while simultaneously being violently robbed.

I'm afraid to enter this because now I'll have dreams about winning. The problem isn't the dreams. If I win, I won't know what reality is anymore without gazing into the lustrous beauty of the phone.

I really hope I win, I want to give this to my dad as a birthday, father's day and Christmas gift! He really needs an upgrade.

I can just picture this remarkable golden machine glimmering in the Sarasota sunshine. It's like it belongs here -- like it wants to come HOME.

They kill people in my country for a regular smartphone, imagine if my smartphone is made of gold!

I still want it!!


Not everyone has or wants Twitter or Facebook. I wish there was an easier way for all of us to enter these contests.

I wonder if the gold plating impacts RF performance... oh who am I kidding, gold phone, who cares ;)

I promise that if I win the Gold Plated HTC one from @goldgenie and @androidcentral that I will not melt it down for the gold value.

This would be a nice addition to my gold plated phone collection

Would love to win me this Gold One. I would give my current One to my mom and keep this one for my self

This might just be the only cell phone to go UP in value over the years! This is a golden investment!

its easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat. but the man worth while, is a man that can smile, when shorts are too tight in the seat... because he's got a gold HTC one jammed in his pocket

This device is amazing id keep this One as my primary phone for EVER. I would never get tired of it and probabaly treat it like the Holy Grail. Haha hope I win!

Damn. My Galaxy nexus just broke and is in rough condition and i was just about to buy an htc one but wow if i can get this i think ill cry.

This is great! I was in the market for a new phone this summer. What better way to show that I'm moving up in the world than a shiny gold phone. DAT STATUS SYMBOL!

Yeahhhhh, if you could go ahead and pick me, that would be great...

This would look great with my golden girl costume lol. Looks pristine in the photos by the way.

That phone would look great in the palm of my hand. It has been feeling looney since my other phone broke. I would love to win it. Lets make it happen, please.

Wow, this is crazy. So many posts, also you made me join androidcentral and twitter so many new things for me.

Would love to win this cool phone.

2719 to 1.. it can happen! Want want want want etc.

Androidcentral, are we allowed to post once daily to increase our odds? If not, here's my entry anywa!

Well here's to hoping I win a GOLD HTC One. I love the new Sense UI and Blinkfeed

I can't imagine the looks a person would get out in public with one of those bad boys. I'd sure like to find out.

This is incredible! You don't know how much I would love to have this! I love the HTC One! And who doesn't love gold?!

the HTC One is quite a remarkable device alone and now only to be combined with Goldgenie? this vicious hybred beast of a phone carries the trait of a luxurious style yacht and the speed and complexities of a supercomputer.

My pitch: “The best looking android phone has just got even more desirable! Elegant design coupled with luxurious gold, it is the ultimate possession every android fan ever dreams of!”

My hope: Win it!

PS: I have just sold my soul to twitter by signing up with them!

Yes, please. Don't know if there's anything cooler than this.

Should I win this thing, would I have to put another case over it? What a dilemma to have.

Better odds of winning this than the lottery.. If I win either way I would get a gold phone haha

I would love to win just a htc one but If i could win the gold phone, i need a case to cover this is a gold phone. I don't need to give anyone a reason to steal it or hurt me for it. I would like to win this awesome phone because im out of upgrade. Lol. I kinda got use to upgrading phones every year.

Ohhh I need this phone..I will make and wear a shirt with android central on one side and gold genie on the other with a htc logo on it also if I win..p p pplease god let me win..I would be the king ruling with my new gold phone..I'm an android guy an htc guy and gold ,who doesn't love gold..change my status from zero to hero,well maybe one (htc one ) lol please and thanks

I can already see someone getting beat up and robbed, just for this phone. It is really nice though, too bad it is only 32 gig.

I'd love to have one! The HTC One is a breathtaking phone and the gold is stunning! Definitely could use an upgrade from my Galaxy Nexus before college. Thanks for all of the awesome content android central!!!


Sooo cool!! This means if I win I could finally get rid of my Samsung LG!! Thanks HTC!!

Here's my comment ( ^-^)/["Comment"]

Please free my soul from iOS, I'm really tired of it by now. :(

>:D This would be cool... I wonder how many of these gold ones have been purchased?

As if winning an HTC One wasn't enough, they throw in the ultimate luxury version. So beautiful. Hope I have a shot of winning. Thank you Android Central for being awesome. And I am now following you on Twitter Goldgenie, looking forward to the next specialty phones as well.

I think a quote from Goldfinger would be best here:

Goldfinger: Man has climbed Mount Everest, gone to the bottom of the ocean. He's fired rockets at the Moon, split the atom, achieved miracles in every field of human endeavor..." except gold plating one of the best phones on the market... ;-)

Thank you Goldgenie and Android Central...

You guys truly have a heart of 'gold' to be willing to give away such an amazing prize!

Not only do I follow @Goldgenie on Twitter, I have posted this illustrious comment to enter the contest!

Seriously though - awesome phone, awesome gold, awesome contest. Best of luck to everyone. This is kind of a big deal.

I have the white and Aluminum, but i wouldn't mind adding some shiny weight to it...yessir!!!

Oh man, 7/8/13 is my 35th Birthday! A Golden Birthday?!?!?! #YesPlease&ThankYou :-)
