Contest: Win a HTC One Google Play Edition from Droid Life! (Updated: Winner Picked)

htc one google play

It feels like it has been a while since we last handed out a mega-prize. Well, I take that back – we just gave away two brand new Nexus 7 tablets a couple of weeks ago. But you know what, it’s going to be a slow week in terms of Android news, so we figured we’d spend the time rewarding readers. How does a brand new, un-opened HTC One Google Play Edition sound? Yes, this is the bad boy running stock Android, receiving updates in a hurry (already on Android 4.3), and still manages to carry all of the best parts of HTC’s flagship hardware. We unboxed it and did an over view here. It’s an easy device to love, that’s for sure.

Let’s do it. 


Update:  Our winner, Joshua R., has been picked and emailed.

Prize:  1 (one) HTC One Google Play Edition.

How to enter:

  • Joseph Morgan

    No bloatware

  • Mike Contreras

    Best thin about the google play edition is of course pure AOSP.

  • carluverdrm2004

    I do love free stuff! I’ve been holding onto my Galaxy Nexus for a while now, some would say too long!

  • I’m in now pick me!

  • Tom Friedman

    The best thing about a Play Edition phone is getting away from the tedious skin the manufacturer starts the phone with. It will be nice to see a phone stripped down and see what it can really do.

    Honestly, the best thing about the device is it’s how Android should be experienced

    Best part of a Google Play device is not waiting on Verizon to release an Android update.

  • cheesse

    Android how it was meant to be. The flexibility to add what you want. Twist it until its just right or to streak your android in the raw. With HTC One’s beautiful design its a no brainer.
