British device customisation firm Goldgenie has added the HTC One (M8) to the list of devices it offers in 24ct gold plating.

Although you can buy a gold-coloured version of the flagship Android phone from UK retailers, there's nothing quite like the real thing and Goldgenie's version has prime gold-plating across the whole of the rear plate. You can even choose one covered in slightly red-tinged rose gold or platinum instead.

Each of the luxury customised phones comes in its own cherry oak presentation box and are SIM-free. They are also unlocked to work on any network in the world.

The 24ct gold version costs £1,897 from Goldgenie, with the rose gold and platinum models more pricey at £1,997 and £2,097 respectively.

If you already own a HTC One (M8) or another phone, you can have it gold plated separately by the company for around £1,000. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
