Welcome to the 2nd Annual Droid Life Reader Appreciation Week!

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Droid Life Reader Appreciation Week!

As many of you may remember from last year’s inaugural event, this is the one time of year that we like to simply say “Thanks!” to the DL community for being the best on the internet. Others will claim to be the biggest or most comprehensive, but no one comes close to the millions of passionate, intelligent, and friendly crew of Android enthusiasts that hang out here on a daily and monthly basis. You are all truly the greatest, and make doing this job a joy each and every day.

So yeah, this is Reader Appreciation Week, a 5-day bonanza of Android-related giveaways. Last year, we handed out 3 tablets, a bunch of apps, some DL swag, Android collectibles, and a case here and there. It was a blast. But you know what? This is year 2, so we turned it up another notch. In fact, we turned it up a couple of notches. The Droid Life community has a chance to walk away with 5 different Tegra 3 powered devices (4 tablets and 1 phone) from NVIDIA, more cases from Spigen and Seidio than you can count, XGEAR tempered glass protectors, exclusive DL hoodies and t-shirts, and so much more. The photo above doesn’t even include it all and is more a less a sampling of the stuff sitting around my office. It’s going to be wild!

Schedule of Events:

Since we have 5-mega prizes (the tablets and phone), we’ll give one of them away each day in the signature giveaway of sorts. These will be full 24-hour contests so that everyone has a chance to enter. The rest of the stuff (cases, shirts, screen protectors, and apps) will be tossed out sporadically with short windows for entry. Since we have so many things to give away, it’ll be like rapid fire throughout much of the week. Basically what I’m saying is that you shouldn’t leave Droid Life for the next 5 days or you may miss out on a chance to win an amazing prize or two.

Entering Contests:

Our contests tend to be built around social media. Since we like to spread Android love through Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, many of these contests can only be entered through those outlets. We’ll still have some that are comment-only for those that aren’t into the social thing. Each contest post will describe the mode of entry, but also be aware that some contests will simply be announced through Twitter, Facebook or Google+ and may never make it to the front page of DL. To make sure that you have the best chance at entering each contest, we highly recommend that you:

We will also be tagging posts with [RAW] or #RAW so that you can pick out the Reader Appreciation Week coverage as it unfolds.


Before we begin, we wanted to recognize the many sponsors that stepped up this year to make this the biggest 1-week giveaway you will find anywhere on the internet. Big thanks to the folks at NVIDIA (as always) for putting up five Tegra 3 devices and for being such a great Android player. Another big shout out to Spigen SGP and the countless cases and goodies they have provided to DL to giveaway over the last few months, to Seidio for the bundle of fun, and to XGEAR for re-doing their tempered glass protectors and allowing us to hand them out.

Everyone ready? The first contest kicks off in about an hour!

  • ScottyfromGA

    This is the one site I go to for ALL my ANDROID/DROID/Galaxy updates and news….I even had a story posted on the front page one time! I was the guy that put out the news to people to check their e-mails for “loyalty programs” from Verizon and maybe could get a new Nexus for free, (which I did). It would make my year and my daughters if I could get my hands on one of these tablets, (my daughters was stolen from our house due to a break-in) OR that XGEAR tempered glass for my Nexus. My kid cracked the screen and where it is, I believe it’ll cover it right up. I’m not begging…but I’d be so honored to receive such a product from you guys here at Droid-Life. Love the site…love the message it spreads and I love Android!

        • nightscout13

          Phandroid has true open discussions. Here, you can get banned for various reasons. At Phandroid they take the good with the bad.

      • …have been a faithful for 2 years and 11 months:)). Thanks Joe T for making me buy the DROID on DAY one even though I had no idea what android was…lol…was going to buy a Blackberry…

        • EvanTheGamer

          My first so-called smart(dumb)phone was the terrible BlackBerry Storm. Worst pile of nothing I ever spent money on…horrible, horrible device. But whatever..then when I got my REAL smartphone the still-incredible Droid X, I never looked back. That mobile device was the real deal, and still is even to this day.

          • Same, had a BlackBerry Brick until the Droid X came out. Bought it on release day and found Droid-Life almost immediately after.

            Now I’m waiting on the next bunch of Nexii.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Wholeheartedly agree…best Android site & community on the world wide web! I will continue to frequent Droid-Life until the Internet no longer exists…which to say, will be forever. Or until the end of days. Or until I meet the stranger in black. Guess whichever comes first. *knock on wood*

      Thanks guys, you all are awesome!

      • michael arazan
