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 am extremely interested in this device. I currently use a GSIII on the Sprint network here in Austin Texas. Although they say the updated LTE network has been completed I personally have issues keeping calls & data flow. I would LOVE to win the HTC One being offered here to see if it resolves the poor network performance I'm experiencing with my device. So please consider me please I'd be flattered. Terry

What an awesome look to an already great looking phone. I try to get many carbon fibre accessories to match my car/motorcycle detailing and this would suit both perfectly. Let me have it please!!!!!!! Good luck to everyone else offcourse

The phone looks awesome. My wife is rocking an original SGS so we've been looking for a nice replacement.

You Guys are great, timely and the king when it come to android. I read your articals daily. Dounload your updates and have learned plenty. Thanks for being there for us. I would love to be the winner of this awsome phone. Regards

I wonder if there'll come a day when phone makers won't make so fragile and maybe even add a bit of built in protection to the phone.

Cool, hopefully my post registers this time.. Lol. Missed out on the last nexus 7 contests, but I'd love a new HTC one!

HTC One is already a beautiful smartphone in terms of its design, but with this dbrand skin!? It really makes the HTC One standout!

First of all I would like to thanks Dbrand and AndroidCentral for this beautiful giveaway. This is honestly one of the best giveaway I've known. I've a little hope on this one :-). Whoever gets it, Congrats and good luck for all.

Is it just me or this is the first time in a couple of years when the flagship phone of samsung has a real competitor in htc ?

Anyway, the HTC One as a superb phone.

I would LOVE to win me a brand spankin' new HTC One for my first dip into the Android OS. I've been following your site for a while as the go-to place for all things Android. Please make it happen for me Android Central!

I just seen the movie "now you see me" and if I could pull of tricks like those I'd use them to get a phone like this!

Have a birthday fast approaching *cough*29th*cough* and i was just telling the wife our nexus s cameras won't cut it for the baby coming, and the one has a clever camera....so please and thank you :)

Man, dbrand skins look awesome! (Would also like the HTC one too by the way...)

The freedom to design any phone the way u want and Google thought that they're moto x was innovating this by far is more innovating based on infinite designs and cheaper cost sorry motorola I gotta go with dbrand skins on this one :-)
