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.

When I first saw the skin, I thought it was a special manufacturer-version of the phone. Pretty sweet, I like it! :D

Winning this phone will be a blessing to me this year. Will give it to my sister who desperately needs a phone.... So help me God!!!

my Galaxy Nexus just received some decent sized screen cracks... so this would be just what the doctor ordered :-)

Just in time for my switch to Android (after breaking my mighty nokia 1100) :P yea i broke a nokia. Now wish me luck u muggles !!

There's never anything I can think of saying when it comes to these contests; you make a comment and you win. I'm not sure why it's so remarkably easy; yet, so intolerably (joking) difficult to win! Oh, right, the amazing people at Android Central (end users and staff alike) are prone to getting a bit hype; thus, buffing my chance of winning.

Good luck to everyone and keep up the awesome work, Mobile Nations/Android Central. dBrand, beautiful skins and awesome customer service: keep it up, guys.

Was a great fan & used iPhone from 3g to 4s. PROUDLY switched to HTC one in May of this year. Always kept up to date with IOS technology. Since switching to Android, you guys are the BEST by far on keeping us abreast of all updates. Continue the good work. By the way, if I win this HTC one, I would love to have it for her instead of the iPhone 5.

I would absolutely love to have a phone that is that gorgeous. The fact that it is a Google Edition is just icing on the cake!

Wow...this is my opportunity, my One X has just broken and I like the One and this skin is great. The problem, too much people want it!

Red and black, two of my favorite colors on one beautiful phone. Doesn't get much better than that. Would love to retire this Gnex. Thanks.

This is a great phone, I like when companies take great products and make them better.

That is a fantastic looking device! Although I prefer to have expandable memory card slot, I think this HTC One is a beauty!

Even though I already own an HTC One X, I can't imagine how much my life quality would improve by owning this slick version of the HTC One. So please, guys. Pick me.

Wow. Possible to make an HTC One even more beautiful? You better believe. HOTTTTTTTTTT

It looks nice, not too crazy. Something thats not going to make your phone look like a glowing piece of teeny bop crap.

I would love to get this phone I love htc but until this phone they haven't been powerful enough for what I do

I am "stuck" on the precision that DBrand is offering in the simply priceless level of attention to detail and uncompromising beauty! This would truly make my day, week, month, year...Android Central you continue to be on the cutting edge of new products.

Please allow me to win. This'll the best birthday present I've ever received!
