Red HTC One now available in the UK

Right on schedule, the "glamor red" HTC One is now available to purchase from Phones4u in the UK. The retailer, which has exclusivity over the red HTC One in the UK, is offering the device on contracts from Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and EE starting at £31 per month. Right now there's no way to pick the phone up off-contract online — although brick-and-mortar P4U stores are often more accommodating to SIM-free buyers.

The red HTC One is — you guessed it — the same aluminum-backed phone we know and love, only with a different and more eye-catching coat of paint. Unfortunately there's still no official info on any plans to launch the red variant outside of the UK.

  • The red is lovely.
    A Red & Black AOSP Theme on this phone would be SICK! Posted via my themed "WHITE DRAGON" LiquidSmooth Sprint GSIII.
  • Am I the only one that thinks the red One is ugly compared to the silver and black?
  • No I am with you, thought it could grow on me because it isnt that bad...
  • Nope...That thing is hideous.
  • Now this phone's extra "loud" Posted via Android Central App
  • I like the red one but already owning it in silver isn't going to make me buy another, but it could sway a younger audience from something else. Posted via Android Central App

  • The Red HTC One is also available in Taiwan yesterday.
    But I am really waiting on Butterfly S picking up by US carriers.
  • That's not happening. They said so at the press release. Posted via Android Central App

  • Red is an awful colour on this device, IMO. Posted via Android Central App
  • I like the red but I think it would look better black with red accents. Solid red is too overpowering for a daily driver. IMO Posted via Android Central App
  • With the red (and black as well) is it just a coat of paint? i.e. if you scratch it do you get the same aluminum color underneath? If so the "glacial silver" would seem superior in that a scratch would not show up as much. Though maybe you can get those kits people use for cars to "remove" scratches... For some reason I think you would be more likely to get a ticket for texting with this phone than with the other colors.
  • This is exactly what I was thinking. You're the first person I've seen say this about the phone. If I got one scratch on the phone it would be all I see when looking at it. Just like a car..Nice ticket joke Haha!
  • I doubt it will scratch, just like the black ones don't. You CAN scratch them if you try really hard, or do stupid shit with them though. You can scratch anything, but the anodized aluminum is harder to scratch than a car. Not knowing what your ride looks like, I won't say it won't likely get scratched if you buy one, but my black one is holding up perfectly.
  • I've knocked and dropped it a few times. Can't really see any huge scratches, only a small dint in the upper corner. Surprised at how durable it is. Posted via Android Central App
  • This thing is SMEXY. Dat color, dat thang, dat ass, man the HTC One looks good in red...
  • Certainly stands out from the crowd. I'd have to see one in person before forming an opinion though Posted via Android Central App
  • The first look at the Verizon One. Nah I really don't know by can for sure see this on V. Notice of days exclusive to them in UK so Verizon can still get it. Either way I think I will pass, just didn't like the feel of it in my hand. Posted via Android Central App
  • make it this color red with gold accents then i'll be sold.
    yes i am 12 years old.
  • That would probably sell like gangbusters in China. Lucky as hell!
  • this color is just so....
    damn..
    pretty.....
  • That's a sexy ass red phone. I like red and black, but usually haven't liked red phones...but that one is nice. I actually don't like the black HTC One, but love the silver, and now this.
  • That's a sexy ass red phone. I like red and black, but usually haven't liked red phones...but that one is nice. I actually don't like the black HTC One, but love the silver, and now this.
  • Wow that's a great looking phone. Nice shape, perfect color. Sweet.
  • That isssh looks GAWDY as hell.
  • I love my silver and white one but wow that's a beautiful phone
  • If it's UK only shouldn't it be 'glamour red' Posted via Android Central App
  • It is looking beautiful but color wouldn’t matter because it's time of cover cases, user can give any colorful look to the device.
  • That's nice to hear. But i already saw this phone here; http://feedall.tripleclicks.com
    Thanks
