HTC One with a dbrand skin

We have a really special giveaway for you guys this weekend! The team over at dbrand has sent us an HTC One with their awesome skin in Ferrari red and black carbon fiber already installed, and one lucky Android Central reader is going to win it! We'll get to the contest in a minute, but first let's take a look at the dbrand skin on the device.

Made from 3M vinyl, dbrand’s skins are precision-cut to match the cut outs and shapes of each specific device. With a range of textures including titanium, carbon, wood, and leather, and a variety of colors for each finish, you're sure to find the perfect look for your device.

One reason I personally like to use a skin on my device is for that added layer of protection. Many people don't want to cover up their beautiful phone with a bulky case, but no one likes to get scratches or dings either. While skins can't do much against drops, for daily wear and tear on your phone skins are a great solution.

While I don't have experience installing the skin on the HTC One, as it came installed on the device we're giving away, I have installed one on my BlackBerry Z10. It's not a complicated process, and if you take your time and follow the instructions dbrand provides, you will be assured of a perfect fit on your device. The skins are durable and will stand up to normal wear and tear so you don't have to worry that it's going to start fading or coming up at the edges. However, if you do decide to remove the skin, you will be pleased to know that the 3M vinyl won't leave any sticky residue behind.

All-in-all, dbrand has a great product for a reasonable price. A skin like the one installed on this device will run you $20, but since they are so durable and carefully crafted, it's money well spent. Also worth noting, you don't have to purchase a full skin. The pieces are sold separately, so you can mix and match the colors and coverage however you like. You can check out all of the options over at their website and keep up on their new products and other announcements on Facebook. You can check out our review of the LG Nexus 4 dbrand skins as well.

Now, about that contest. As I mentioned, dbrand sent us the HTC One you see in the pictures above, with their skin pre-installed. This is the Google edition of the HTC One, so it's not tied to any carrier.

To enter, leave a comment below. Just one comment. If we catch you spamming and leaving multiple comments you will be disqualified from the contest and probably banned from future contests as well, and nobody wants that. The contest is open world-wide, but it's up to you to make sure this version of the HTC One will work on your carrier. The prize is just the phone, and the winner is responsible for any service and accessories. Good luck everyone! We'll announce the winner next week.

Please, it would be very nice if you were to choose me as the winner.

By the way, didn't the Ferrari belong to Sonny Crocket, not Enrico Tubbs? That is if you are referring to the character Tubbs from Miami Vice. MichaelMonroe, DO NOT reply to this question by leaving another comment or you will be kicked out of the contest. If PM is working, and you wish to respond to me, make sure it is via PM and NOT by the contest comments.

Oh yeah...BTW...Please list the name, address, shipping method and delivery date of the winner. ;-)

My boyfriend wants this phone. I would love to win it just to see the look on his face! :) lol

wow a little harsh if you post more than one comment, eh? Banned from future contests may be taking it a little to far but nevertheless, i want this phone! I NEED new phone. To make a long story short , my brother dumped my iPhone in the toilet. What an ass

I have been coveting the HTC One ever since the company let me try one at their popup booth in San Francisco just before carriers got hold of them. What a display! What amazing audio! And with that dbrand wrap, I'm salivating

Yeah..! I was stunned by the design by default, but this one just made it even more stunning! :O I would love to have my hands on that One!

HTC ONE!! Awesome phone with an awesome skin to it. High quality and leaves no stain when removed. Google edition. What more can you ask for?

I always thought the One was the best looking android phone around, but those dbrand skins help take it to a whole new level

I've never been such a fan boy over anything I ever wanted to own as much as an htc one. In contract I can't upgrade for another year so I would love to be considered for this contest.

Thank you

Wife told me if I buy another phone she'll divorce me! PLEASE!! PICK ME!! I know I'm pathetic. I want to jump ship from the iphone SO bad but my contract doesn't run out until Dec 2014!

This device is epic!

Had one for a few days before being pickpocketed taking my cousin to a concert Small bummer, great time

You pick me, I send you cookies out maybe something better. Bribery works right?
Thanks for the offer.

My wife and I both have this phone, it is an amazing phone.
the metal case puts it above the rest out now, the htc ui is awesome.
I would definitely use this one as well & let my son have the one I've got.

beats audio just makes me rock and ferrari panel is just awesome............these features make htc one as most impressive phone ........hope i would win it....

That's actually not bad looking at all. You had me at Google Edition.

Need to dump my crappy Samsung Relay 4G. Worst smartphone I ever owned :~(
This would be such a treat as a replacement

I normally put cases on my phones, but there's no way I could cover up a phone as good looking as that! That phone would be a great replacement for my aging Galaxy Nexus.

Could really use a new phone. This would be great. Cheers to who ever wins.

The One is absolutely gorgeous. It would be a fantastic replacement for my Galaxy S2. I would definitely join HTC's camp.

Definitely my favorite phone on the market right now. I love products built with intent and care, and the HTC OneOn and dbrand vynl skin are definitely those products.

Love the combination of the sleek HTC look and the industrial yet clean and B-E-A-utiful skin ;) Would be awesome to win, but whoever does end up winning is going to get a top-notch device with a great looking skin that complements the phone nicely. Good luck to everyone (including me! Haha)

Have any of you guys seen The Campaign? Will Farrel and Zach Galifianakis. Not a horrible movie, but also not particularly great. The few beers I had probably helped.


That's a wonderful looking skin combo. In buying one for my One tonight.

I'd be okay with winning a phone....

Gotta say I like the skinned look a hell of a lot better than the regular One.

It would be great to win it today that my Soccer National Team won another point to go to the World Cup. It would be an excellent companion through the matches!

Please please somebody PLEASE save me from this WRETCHED iPhone! I miss android SO, and need to be FREED from this tyrannical grip that is appl*SHHHHHH!!!!! He who's name we do not me Andy-wan-kanobi. You're my only hope.
