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.

  • Christopher Chaison

    The best part of a Google play phone is no bloatware and carrier restrictions

  • andybones

    The best part about a pure Google Play Edition is the fact that HTC is finally listening to it’s users! So many people including myself LOVE HTC phones, the build factor is top notch, easily one of the best build phones out there. We finally don’t have to run ROMs that although developers worked very hard on, was never 100% bug free. We now have this along with Google updates!

    God Bless
