Golden HTC One pops up exclusively at O2 in Germany
After Apple and Samsung gave their 2013 flagship devices a golden touch, it was just a matter of time before their competitors catch up with them and pick up the latest trend. HTC was the third major phone manufacturer which announced that it will add the golden color option to its flagship device, HTC One.

As a matter of fact, the golden HTC One was officially revealed several days ago, but it was stated that it will be available no earlier than mid-December. Surprisingly, German carrier O2 has obtained exclusivity for this color version of HTC's flagship smart phone and now lists the device as available. However, the carrier states that there might be certain delays in deliveries. You can get the golden HTC One with a two-year contract. This way, the device will cost you about $1.36 (1 EUR), the same as its black and silver versions, and you will have to pay $53.62 (39.49 EUR) per month as a part of your contract. Of course, you can opt to buy the device without signing a contract, but that will cost you $734.52 (541 EUR).

Since HTC One made contract(secret) with Apple, they share the same marketing tricks and same menial tech media. HTC is not Apple , though, and have no zombies like Apple to buy any crap.
Nothing will help this sealed , tin-can brick , though. Even if they plated it with real gold,
Did you notice how when they write about the back of Note 3 , they never miss to say FAKE leather , but about iPone 5S and HTC One they never write FAKE gold????

You have obviously never used the phone, you little troll. Tin can brick? How can that be while also being named phone of the year by so many people? Your opinion is just that. An opinion. Just because it's the loudest doesn't mean it's factual.

Who are those "so many people"? Tech media guys with aluminum tin can "gold" iphones in their pockets?? Or iboys on the comment sections , that pretend to be HTC One lovers, to fight Samsung??(but will never buy anything else than iphone)

HTC is close to bankruptcy with this "great" brick. No matter how many worshiping HTC One articles per day flooded the media.
They sell HTC One for $28 now. But no one buys bricks.

Go to "Reception". I'm an HTC fan, I went from the Evo to this. Maybe their money issue has nothing to do with the One but a lot to do with their other phone ventures that have failed. You downvote and reply because you didn't like my comment. If you do that you have to bring something to the table other than baseless "facts". Those are called opinion

I don't like all of this exclusive crap. Every phone should be available on every major carriers imo.

HTC one's design deserves some respect, but they kill their mojo with the ultra pixel thing. if ONE had a thirteen ULTRA MP on its back, then the whole thing would have been different.
