What's all this then? We're not just giving away an HTC One. Oh, no. If we're going to give away one 2013's hottest smartphones, we're going to give away one of the most desired versions of it. So you, dear reader are not vying for a mere HTC One. You're going to get the chance to win your very own developer version of the HTC One. That's the one whose bootloader is beyond the reach of meddlesome carrier politics. That's the one with the full 64 gigabytes of storage. 

You're probably dying to read ahead, looking for bullet points on how to enter. Fine. They're coming up next, right after this.

How to enter to win a 64GB HTC One developer version!

This is a whole lotta phone, so we're gonna make you work for it. 

  • Shoot a video of yourself with your current smartphone. Doesn't matter how old and crappy it is.  Doesn't matter if it's an iPhone. Or an old BlackBerry. We wanna see your face on the screen. Tell us why you deserve this HTC One developer edition. 
  • Upload your video to YouTube. (You can leave it unlisted if you want, and you can delete it after this contest is over.)
  • THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART: Embed your video in this forum thread. Leave us a message along with it if you want, but all you need to do is click the little video button then paste in the link to your video. Easy as pie.
  • Do you live on planet Earth? You may enter this contest. Open to everyone.
  • We'll close the contest at 12:01 a.m. April 17. Plenty of time.

Get it? Got it? Good. Get to it!

kashk5 says:

I'm definitely going to enter this contest. Would love to get my hands on a Developer edition of the HTC One!

Edit: Just submitted my entry. Good luck to everyone!

Sanjay Tomer says:

"HTC One developer edition" seems so facinating to me....I am in.

mlynch01 says:

Need this phone! Don't have the money for it so this would be perfect opportunity!

OliverChou says:

I'm IN! This is wonderful.

Adrian0E says:

Can it be a mute video? Or I have to say in the video why I want the phone?

I really don't want to make people laugh at my "spoken" english! :-D

bp3dots says:

Do it in your native tongue, and use subtitles!

geoff5093 says:

Looks like some people don't read the rules. A comment here alone is not going to enter you in the contest!

Ikeman90 says:

im pretty sure they realize that and are only saying they will be making the video.

i would enter but i don't deserve a developers addition. i hope it actually gets won by a developer who will develop

MC_A_DOT says:

what the hell are you on about...what part of 'I'M IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!' made you think I or anyone else didn't read the rules.

Its called excitement...try it sometime.

Something about non-removable battery and no micro sd card slot.

Faun says:

But that's not fair...
I live on the moon :(

bcbenton says:

Will this work on T-Mobile or just AT&T?

vic_singh says:

Planning my plot now... my video will be off the hock...

PodMonkeys says:

I definitely need to do this one! I want to start some Android Dev, but I'm using a Palm Centro!

rlbrooks says:

For the love of mac and cheese give this man the phone. This story is sadder than Ole Yeller getting painted with buckshot.

superm1 says:

Sure i'd like!

Zs2art says:

"So you're saying there's a chance" LOL I was so depressed this morning when I read that the Dev model was sold out. I started saving as soon as I learned about it, but I have a ways to go... What I want to do is sell the junky phone I have now to help save, but then I wont have phone on my personal account... Anyway this just made my day, you can expect a video from me soon! Awesome giveaway! AC FTW!!!!

Bhagi108 says:

I might as well, since as of today my pre-order of the dev edition has been delayed until the 24th! :(

Podunks says:

Id be in, except for the whole, making a video with your face in it part. Too security minded.

xaml says:

More commonly known as privacy.

bp3dots says:

No different than going out in public.

jamojamo says:

Face made for radio? :)

Don't worry, it's not like Brad Pitt and Kate Upton are going to be doing videos!

Video killed the radio star.

rlbrooks says:

Internet radio killed Video. Revenge is sweet...

ShaggyM8 says:

Please pick me! I need a new phone <3333

Nexusmaniac says:

SloPOS says:

World wide? I don't think you guys understand the legalities of giving away a prize on the internet. Hope the internet police don't find you.

SeanBlader says:

Hmm, are there bonus points if I shoot the video in 3D with my Evo while using my Evo LTE?

I love tech i cant get enough tech Im 16 and i really hope i win


Thanks for this great opportunity Android Central! I'm fifteen and I would love to have this phone!!! I look forward to possibly hearing from you within the future! Thanks!!!

Jeovanis says:

How will the winners be chosen?

neonworm says:

How old do you have to be?

Furan746 says:

Wow, this sounds incredible. I'll be making my video this weekend when I have access to a camera. Not planning to stand in front of a mirror lol.

Rey Ford says:

Here's my video! My first video ever too.
I really really want this phone that bad.


praneth_m says:

Still have the HTC Magic as my primary phone. Would live this upgrade :)

ajm135 says:

How will you determine a winner?? Does it matter if we have a slightly newer phone?? Well it increase our chances if it's old and crappy? Is it random? A tiny bit more clarification would be appreciated

chiiilaxx says:

My Daughter will be born at 1:30pm in Orlando FL on April 16th so I think this phone would be a nice treat to take videos of her.



aapold says:

I need to read the instructions. This is not the thread to embed the video in... nor is pasting a youtube URL the way to do it.

Voliam says:

TDF, all these geeks that can't follow simple instructions for entering a contest.
Good luck to all of you who followed directions!

Rey Ford says:

It's not that we can't follow instructions, most of us posted both in the Thread and comments, we're not retarded bruh.

But I do see that people are not using their smartphones as the instructions say.
I think the instructions need to be more clear though, like what it is that we need to show in the video.
Everybody seems to be giving sob stories which imo sounds like cheating, but I don't know.

MunMaRu says:

Cool !

Yum Yum I need some One! Would love this phone!

deadlock4400 says:

kramer1000 says:

GIMME GIMME GIMME: thanks for watching

geoff5093 says:

Why is everyone shooting a video showing their phone? Can people not read? Phil said to make a video USING your current phone. "Shoot a video of yourself with your current smartphone."

kramer1000 says:

My current phone doesn't have a camera, so I'm left with no other option

I can't wait to see who wins, good luck everybody :)

Hey guys, here is my submission... I attempted to shoot this video with the BlackBerry but after battery pull #3 I had a friend film me with his phone and I featured the BlackBerry in my video instead.


Thanks, and good luck everyone!

Hi, I would very much like to receive the HTC One.
