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.

I'd really love to get a new phone! I'm still looking for work out of school and I bricked my Moto Droid X half a year ago and am stuck on my old backup phone, an ol' Samsung SCH-i760.... I REALLY could use a break :)

My Nexus 4 died Monday due to "Red light of death" and I was already looking for a replacement phone. And y'all should know that college is pretty expensive and right now is not the best time for a college student to have that extra cash to buy a replacement phone. So AC, save me from this misery if possible!

Not much of a fan for skins but this one is awesome. dbrand has done a great job! It would be nice if the sides are done as well but a bumper case would probably cover that. Let's see how my luck will fare today. Hope to get my hands on that skinned Google-edition HTC One!

Haven't had an HTC device since my droid incredible I bought off my roommate years ago. Can haz?

If I had this phone I would call you from it and thank you for the nice gift. But just once. Because more would be kind of weird.

Yeah!! Please end my misery and send me the HTC One Google edition. Been stuck with my HTC sensation xe for the past 2 years. Can't bear to see other Android users enjoy all the features that come with Jelly Bean. In return I'll send you folks a cute koala or a kangaroo.
Love from Sydney, Australia.
PS:I have never won anything in my life.

This will be an amazing phone to own. My friend has one and I have so much fun playing around with it.

I'm impressed by how sharp that skin looks on the HTC one. I would almost settle for just the skin, the key word being almost. good luck everyone.

I would love to win the Google Edition HTC One. I would sell my current 64gb AT&T HTC One. I love the fast updates. Bismillah


i would really love to get my hands on the HTC One. Pretty cool phone and perfect chance for me to get one without breaking my contract. Good luck to me and fingers crossed ;)

HTC One, Google Edition, and an awesome skin . . . Sweet contest prize!
