Android Haikus: A Few of Our Favorites

In order to enter our Nexus 7 and Google Play gift card contest, from yesterday, we asked that readers come up with an Android related haiku. We had no idea what to expect, but it turned out to be pure gold. The DL community came through in a big way, creating some of the most entertaining and thought-provoking poems. While our winner was chosen at random, we still wanted to highlight some of our favorites. There were over 1700 entries, so we couldn’t possibly read them all, but we definitely dove into a big chunk.

Here are some of the best. 

Michael Valadez 

Lightweight and speedy.
Seven inches in my hand.
A tablet, you perv.


Loading my device
With power and performance
Simply put, Droid Does


With Nexus seven,
Convert all nonbelievers,
Rise, android army.

Steve Huetteman 

Nexus seven for he.
A four for she.
Two happy Nexi’s to be

Zachary F

Droid Life is the site
That I visit everyday
For my Android News.

C Glenn

Unlock me, it cried
Anticipation sets in
Be free, little droid

Matt Kessler

Little green robots
Under the lit Christmas tree
Dog chewed it, F**ker!

Kevin Bonaventura

First was OG Droid
So much customization
Who needs an iPhone?


Nexus, oh Nexus
With your bootloader unlocked
Learn Motorola!


Where am I, I’m lost
Apple Maps bad directions
Android save me please!

Chris Sung 

The Galaxy SIII
Wow, TouchWiz is so awesome
Said no one ever

Zach Jacobs 

Roboto is sleek
Holo is clean, change is good
This is Jelly Bean

Nexus for freedom
From the data capping fools
Apple wants to sue


Triumphant Android,
you are Apple’s one demise.
Do not be evil.

Brian Milner 

Seven inch tablet
Jobs said they were D.O.A.
Android said “Nom Nom!”


Always up to date.
Bootloaders always unlocked.
All but Verizon…

Nate Warner 

Tiny, small, and green
A bug of technology
Bugdroid does it all.

To read the rest, be sure to head to the comments of yesterday’s contest post.

  • A.

    I thought the first one was funniest, then cried at the TouchWiz one. “said no one ever” always gets me

  • Steve Huetteman = 6-4-7? what?

  • Zach Jacobs

    Im honored haha. droid life is the best!

  • cizzlen

    I lol’d way too hard at this one 😀

    “Motorola Blur
    No Update to 4.2
    Should have got Nexus.”

  • Julian Coronado

    “Nexus seven for he.
    A four for she.
    Two happy Nexi’s to be”


  • JDMendiola

    I know it’s late , but here’s my go at a haiku.

    Quad-core , jellybean
    Gorgeous 4.7 screen
    Nexus 4 , my queen

  • John Simonelli

    Dang, didn’t make it. I had high hopes. That was the most creative thing I’ve done in a month. lol

  • nexus or s3
    jelly bean or gingerbread
    apple to deathbed

  • Thanks for the props, y’all. I kinda shot my wad on that one. See what I did there?

  • Inquizitor

    By and large really clever and charming. However, I do get a little frustrated when I see some that aren’t actually haiku.

  • damn, didn’t make the cut.

  • grumpy pants

    The first line on this one is not 5 syllables:

    Chris Sung

    The Galaxy SIII
    Wow, TouchWiz is so awesome
    Said no one ever

    • David Cosme Jr.

      I struggled with that too, but apparently, a true haiku does not count syllables, but rather counts “ons”. This is like a separate sound. For example Droid: Dr | o| ee| d where Droid is just 2 syllables. Truthfully, I’m not certain I did that right, but I am certain about the 5/7/5 referring to ons, not syllables.

    • Guest

      Neither is the last line… epic fail lol

      • Fattie McDoogles

        It actually is… “ever” is 2 syllables.

    • Yeah I posted it as a guest, then couldn’t delete it when I rewrote it without the “The.” I guess they didn’t see my post with the proper 5 syllables. 🙁

      • grumpy pants

        Sorry to call you out, just was amused =p
        Otherwise, I dig it!

        Good luck with the next round of the contest.

        • Haha, no worries. I caught it myself after I clicked post >_<
          Good luck to you too!

  • PhoenixPath

    They should have stopped accepting comments after Michael’s.

    That is all.

  • Sirx

    And thank you Droid-Life, for continuing to choose the winners at random. If I had to win with my creativity versus my loyalty, I’d never have a chance 🙂

  • Danrarbc

    You didn’t pick my OG salute? 🙁

    Started with Froyo
    2.0 and 2.1 [Two point O and two point one]
    Next came Gingerbread.

  • gokusimpson

    No haiku with FACKWORS?

    • i worked it into mine. alas, not a favorite

    • EC8CH

      FACKWORS is more appropriate for Limericks… if you know what I mean.

  • “A tablet, you perv.” = GOLD. Props to that guy.

    • maybe im wrong, but i think that he should get something just for coming up with one thats so good.

      Someone give this man a $25 google play card.

      • New_Guy

        I’m with you on that

      • I’ll back you on that too.

  • Kal5el

    I don’t know who legacystar is, but the third one listed there is mine.

  • EC8CH

    30158 syllables

  • Clearly you guys did not read mine!

    • Famouz Starz

      nor mine! i challenge KELLEX to the feats of strength for FESTIVUS!

  • Zachary F
