Contest: Win a HTC One X From NVIDIA and Droid Life [RAW] (Updated: Winner Picked)

Day 2 of the 2nd Annual Droid Life Reader Appreciation Week is here! Yesterday, we handed out a 16GB Nexus 7, but today, it’s all about the phone side of things instead of tablets. How does an unlocked quad-core HTC One X sound? As one of our favorite phones of all time, we couldn’t be more excited to give this away to one lucky DL reader. Its power and beauty are matched by few if any phones even though it has been on the market for 7 or 8 months. If you haven’t read our glowing review of it, I suggest that you do.

Before we begin though, we wanted to give another big shout out to NVIDIA for putting up some amazing prizes this week including the One X. You won’t find a better gaming experience on any phone thanks to its Tegra 3 quad-core processor and big beautiful screen. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the Tegra Zone for all of your gaming needs.

OK, lets give this bad boy away! 


Update:  Our winner is…@TCM_89 who loves him some AirDroid. Congrats!

Prize:  1 (one) HTC One X [Unlocked] phone

*Note – This is an unlocked phone, meaning you can simply slap an AT&T SIM card in and have it run on their HSPA network without problems. It may also work on T-Mobile, but likely not on HSPA.

How to enter:

1.  Follow @NVIDIATegra and @droid_life on Twitter.
2.  Tweet the following message:

    My favorite non-Google app of all time has got to be Tasks. It let’s me sync all of my todo lists in one place with a great interface.

  • Joshua and Bristol Kantor

    swipe pad…makes everything you need accessible at the swipe of a finger!

  • Ismael Sanchez

    SwiftKey 3 for me, I suck at typing on anything else

    Unified remote! It lets you control your computer from a distance over WiFi. I like to hook my laptop up to my TV, sit on the couch and control everything with my phone.

    I think Instagram is my favorite.

  • eddiemac

    flip board is the bomb!

    Mango, a manga reader app, is my favorite non-Google app.

  • Brad Cleveland

    Swipe…or FoxFI

  • delerivm

    Plex, and a close 2nd place is NZB Unity. Combined, those 2 apps make my media server more awesome than I ever imagined it could be.

  • kismet769

    SwiftKey is always the first thing I install on a new phone… Or after a clean flash.

  • Kent Burton

    ROM manager .. I don’t use it as much as I did when I was Rocking the OG droid but this app takes the cake IMHO

  • Mike


  • Aaron Lee

    Handcent SMS

  • Kurt Edens

    TiB ftw

  • Shawn Mayers

    My favorite non-google app would be a toss up between handcent and tricorder. Handcent for text messaging the way I like it, and tricorder to be able to play star trek, lol.

  • http://twitter.com/squizzidesigns Kyle Squizzato

    Ehhh.. probably Pocket. I do a lot more reading of articles then I used to

  • Rob Mounts

    I am going to have to say that I am enjoying NOVA 3 right now.
