The HTC One is a beautiful device. At a time when most Android phones are made of plastic, HTC betted on aluminum for its flagship device. The handset just exudes style and class, but there is something it's missing. It screams premium, but it doesn't quite say ... elite. If only it were made of gold. Now that would be a quality device. While we can't expect HTC of all companies to have the visionary mindset necessary to deliver such a product, the fine folks over at Goldgenie understand class. They have produced an HTC One available in 24ct gold.

Gold HTC One

The HTC One can be cased in gold ($2436.03), rose gold ($2693.12), and platinum ($2564.57). Each version of this elite phone is available in silver or black and comes with either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory. If the HTC One isn't the phone for you, Goldgenie has previously debuted a gold-plated version of the Galaxy S4. This might be just the solution for Samsung fans who are tired of those plastic-y backs.
