HTC is giving away a limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. One M8, all you gotta do is take a #superselfie

HTC One M8 SHIELD edition contest

Captain America: The Winter Solider hit theaters last month to warm reviews (we loved it). While we wont spoil any plot lines, eagle-eyed Android fans may have caught some subtle product placement in the film by way of the original HTC One making a cameo as Nick Fury’s smartphone of choice (Hydra was partial to the HTC One X+).

Taking that Marvel endorsement deal and running with it, HTC is now throwing a giveaway on both Twitter and Facebook which sees a 14 lucky winners receiving a special limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. HTC One M8. To enter, all you gotta do is a take a selfie in your best Captain America-inspired getup and post it to Twitter along with the hashtag #superselfie. Those of you with a Facebook account can also get in on the fun, posting your pictures to their promotion post here.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. edition HTC One M8 is pretty much the standard gunmetal grey model, only with a numbered S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on the back. Subtle, but cool enough that Marvel fans can appreciate the reference. The promotion officially ends on Thursday, May 15h and you can enter once per-day — just don’t go recycling the same selfie over and over. For official rules, head here. After entrants have been selected, the full list of winners will be publicly posted here. Good luck!

      Yeah, that’s what I meant by “original HTC One” but tacked M8 at the end out of habit. *Fixed.

  • Phaz0n

    Wow an HTC One M8 with a S.H.I.E.L.D. sticker slapped on the back? Talk about special!

    • J Cav the Great

      all I need is a stencil, air brush, and white paint…

    • malcmilli

      i think the special lies in the “giving away” part

  • mcl630

    It would make more sense to give away an NVidia Shield with S.H.I.E.L.D. logo.

    • NinoBr0wn

      No. No it wouldn’t.

      • mcl630

        How so? Whenever I see an article about the NVidia Shield, I think of Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. When I see an article about the HTC One M8, I do NOT think of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Captain America.

      • mcl630
