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 just bought a Google nexus 7, but I have an iPhone. Please help me break free of Apple and give me a beautiful Android phone to go along with my tablet! Hugs and love. ;-)

I have seen a lot of cool skins and covers and cases but this skin is very unique I never heard of dbrand before I always purchase cases and covers on amazon but after reading this post I went and checked out the dbrand site and man their products are nice I'm going to order me a wooden skin or leather skin thanks guys for keeping us updated on all these cool staff

I have an iPhone 5 but my oldest son has the HTC One and my youngest has the HTC One mini...I'm jealous and I want my own HTC One and this one looks so sweet!

Htc is he best brand out there in the market concerning quality and specifications.I have the wildfire S got it 2 years back no problems so far only that the internal memory is less anyways it was the only phone i could afford from Htc. Since i saw the Htc one I'm craving for it!!!! but unable to get one.The Htc one is one bad boy!!! Htc Rocks and about the "dbrand" their skin's look awesome especially the one posted above in the pic !!! I would vouch for htc any time :-)

Just being a little greedy. This is my address P.O Box KN 1399 Kaneshie-Accra Ghana -West Africa . Good luck to everyone. :)

Ok, that is a good looking skin. A great phone with a great os + a great skin as a protection, what else could you possibly want more? That is just the perfect combination for mobile. Keep the great work guys



Who would of guessed i have a chance to win my favorite phone i want to own with my favorite color combo!!! Thank you Android Central and Dbrand for the opportunity.

plllllllllllllllllllease im so desperate for this phone
plus ive tried many a times i reaally want a droid thatll last me years for free
i havent got anything for free
and i havent used a droid b4.....
pllllease give it to me with beats please......

That cover makes the phone look faster than it already is.
Have enjoyed f1 by itself, have enjoyed One by itself but them together looks very tempting. FOne seems like " The phone".

HTC has always been my favorite brand for a phone. The reason being they just make the best looking phones out there, and they try something different with each iteration, unlike some others. HTC One in itself is a wonderful piece of artwork and most of the cases-skins just used to look wrong on it. But NOT this one. I never thought it possible, but this red-black pattern design just made the HTC one even more desirable. Kudos to dbrand.

Thanks Android Central, for this opportunity that you gave us to win an elegant beast
I really would like to change my old phone and upgrade my self with the HTC One , I'm really thankful that you care about your clients experience and happiness.

That's got to be one of the sweetest looking skins I have seen for a long time!! And on my planned upgrade phone too, couldnt be any better

Locked, cocked, and ready to rock!!! Looks amazing! Definite conversation starter and attention grabber... Whoever gets it will be lucky!

As the owner of a composites company this would really set a tone in meetings. Please let me be the One with the carbine One!

surely One of the beautiful phone meets a heavenly-ferrari-feel's a perfect match.
if only i could have this One

I love HTC! Been using HTC for almost 3 years and would love to have this year's flagship! And with dbrand Ferrari skin, even if it's not the car, it's already like owning ONE!

I am a new android user. I drank the apple kool-aid and had every iPhone except 5. I decided when the Galaxy s4 came out and my contract was up to see what all the commercials/hype was about. It was either s4 or HTC One. I just couldn't waste my money on an iPhone 5. I was tired of being locked down on my device. I wanted to upgrade from a See N' Say. I chose S4 and I am happy with the phone but I really want to see what the HTC One will do. Good luck to all but I hope better luck to me! :-p

If any phone could take me from my beloved blackberry,this could be the one. Only ONE way to find out;).

I wouldnt mind one. been eyeing this phone since it came out. Been an iPhone user since the first one and have been android curious for quite some time. My brother has a nexus 4 and have been somewhat jealous of the screen size and pure android experience looks like something i can get used to. This would be the perfect phone for me to make the jump to android. Pick me

Love the skin and its in my favorite colors too. If i win this, i will finally replace by droidX.

Hey best lick to all of you.... uff!! Auto correct I meant to say best luck to all

If it hadn't been for cotton eyed Joe, I'd been married a long time ago. Where did you come from? Where did you go? Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe?

Sure would be great to win this im working in Afghanistan at the moment and my phone fell and shattered and now dosent work right.

This would be so perfect since my daughter just broke her phone and needs a replacement and we dont have insurance

Awsome phone!!!!! I will be on vegetarian diet for the whole week and give my gf my current HTC One if I win :)

Winning this awesome phone would make my son's day, because he'd get handed down my Galaxy S4. This has to be the most awesome phone I've ever seen...

HTC one is the 'the special one' and I am the 'chosen one'. So it's a combo made in heaven. Thanks android central for giving me this awesome phone.

Great review here about the skin you can put on your phone! If I don't win this one I'll have to buy one for definite! Thanks for the review!

Posted via Android Central App

The One is top of my upgrade list at the moment to replace my One X. Would be great to win one. My son would also love it as he'd get the One X!!

Posted via Android Central App

It'd be great to win this phone, I'd love it. Unfortunately I can't even afford it as of now.

Posted via Android Central App

If I win this, I would give my device to someone who is just as less fortunate as I am. Seriously. Good luck people.

World's best phone with world's best os with world's best skin on world's best site makes world's best offer.

This is know as GIVEAWAY


Oh my...the red, the black, and that dash of white; this GPE HTC One goes VVRRROooomm!

Please, old HTC one X lost in the post,am currently without smartphone, liberating in many ways but this phone is too cool

I'm getting ready to go to Europe for work for the next few months and could really use this. Being on Sprint really isn't good for the international travel.
