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.

Really need a new phone after my S4 was stolen, and what a perfect opportunity to try out the One! Always wanted to buy a db skin too, but never could decide. They look like they make a very high quality product, so it would be perfect to see in person!

Fingers crossed!

The skin looks fantastic. I have been following this phone since before it came out and know that it's the One I want!

I've got the One S on TMo right now and have always bought HTC for the sheer quality of hardware they produce. I would love this phone.

Wouldn't be nice to own HTC again.. Back to my old roots that started whole android love (EVO 4G) :)

That is a dream phone, shame that winning it would be same as an lottery...
Too bad i cant never afford it in my coutry. But would be an great b-day present :(

HTC ONE HTC ONE HTC ONE HTC ONE you could call this the dark Knight edition looking like that it's seems it cloud take bullet ;-) gorgeous device really like it.

The HTC One is a fantastic phone. But I think that the gradual drop in HTC's sales show that not enough people looking out to buy smartphones have realised it/heard about how good it is.

Guys at AC, you are the best! The news and updates you post are top notch, and now you're rewarding your loyal subscribers with this amazing gift? Kudos to you all!

It puts the skin on its phone or it gets the hose. IT PUTS THE SKIN ON THE PHONE OR IT GETS THE HOSE! I need to win my phone is more played out then that movie.

I almost went with one of those skins for my N4, but was more worried about the glass back cracking than scratching.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win this amazing piece of tech! The black and red finish is awesome and on the front, it's really cool that they highlighted the BoomSound speakers. I am an audiophile myself and I have to say that I have never heard a better sounding phone in my life. Sure, that is due to the stereo speakers but the Beats Audio equalizer also plays it's part. Awesome phone!

The is a beautiful device and I would love to win it. I can't afford a phone right now and my phone is on its lasts legs so this phone would be a god sent. Thank you all for giving people the opportunity to win device like this. Even if I don't win at lest I know there is another give away i can try to enter. You have to be in it to win it. :-) Keep up the good work.

Dbrand skins are the best I have them on my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, I hope I win

The phone looks so beautiful it's hard to describe it with words.. Good luck everyone! :)

That is just awesome. Good on you Android Central for featuring these skins. Love you guys, hope I'm successful.

If not, I'll keep reading regardless.

Long live Android Central.
