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.

Student from Australia. Would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to win this phone. I'm rocking a two year old HTC Sensation XL now and its about time I upgraded. The beautiful resolution on the HTC One is my number one feature on this beautiful device. Thanks Android Central

This skin is really stunning, it seems to be great deal. Yet, veriety of devices is small, in that case I cannot get one :/

I love 3m products from their UV protectants for carbon fiber on cars to their clear protectant films for my cars. I am surprised they now make skins for phones a d I'm sure the quality will be something high up there like their other products. Would love to write a review on the 3m skins if I won the HTC one :)

My first Android was a Samsung Galaxy Mini, and I haven't had an Android since. But I've read many reviews of the HTC One, and perhaps it can win me over! :)

Awesome!! Love the phone and the skin! I would love to win this just in time for me to drop Verizon and go prepaid.

This would be great. I could give my S3 to my daughter, and I could use the One!

I always have a skin on my s3, slippery little sucker that it is. Got one with a kick stand from eBay. I've given up on a screen protector, it hides the amazing feel of the touch screen. Pick me :-)

1. A HTC One
2. A Google Edition One
3. God-like Ferrari skin

3 things that would make my life, all bundled in one device...

Hope I have a chance to win this x3 I'm already squealing

I love DBrand and I'm rockin their black carbon skin on the back of my nexus 4. I would love to win this HTC One.

Well here goes nothing, my first experience with htc was my gfs htc wildfire s and my senses were immediately heightened now I own a one s. Would be nice to win so I can give my phone to my son good luck everyone :-)

Just when I thought the HTC One couldn't look any more gorgeous, they go and do this. I'd feel like my HTC One is the best version if I had this skin!

I love the carbon fiber look, more so in red and black. And I could use a new phone. so. Here is my 1 comment :)

Love THE HTC ONE, great body design, faster, screen really brilliant, speakers with the beat sound are great, and ZOE, excellent way to take pictures... in resume is the best of the best

HTC one!

My dad's phone is kind of broken so it would be cool to gift him the best android smartphone ever!

I really want to win this. It'd be my first smartphone ever. Yes, that's right. Third world student's budget. Greetings from Colombia, South America!

One of the best Android Phones launched till date from HTC with a chance to experience android as Google intended it to be and now with some custom vinyl.... what else does an Android Fan need!! Thank you all for this unique opportunity.
Good Luck to All..

Once again a golden opportunity to exhibit my unrivalled ineptitude with regards to Android Central giveaways arises. I dare you Android Central - rise up and put an end to my fantastic losing streak!

The Formula 1 team of Ferrari might need a performance like the One to win this year's championship.

Thanks Android Central & Michelle Haag for this gorgeous & generous offer. I can't believe such generosity now a days. Please count me in. My carrier will work flawlessly with this smart phone. It is my first entry in such a great giveaway hands are shaking for writing all this...great product from great people on great condition (just comment). Wish me good luck! And thanks again!

Very cool.. I am going to order a skin for my EVO 4G and dump the case.

It will match perfectly the pair of red and black Ferraris I have in my climate controlled garage.

Now this would be awesome! I've really been wanting a One!! Love that skin, too.
