Quick Contest: Win 1 of 3 Galaxy Nexus Fantom Tempered Glass Screen Protectors (Updated: Winners Picked!)

The Galaxy Nexus on Verizon is still to this day one of the most popular phones among Droid Life readers. It was the first Nexus (maybe the last too) to launch on Big Red, providing this passionate community the only fully open phone on their network of choice in quite some time. But now that the phone has been around for almost a year, it seems to take a backseat at times to all of the new phones that hit the market. So to show the G-Nex that we still love it, we wanted to hand out a couple of tempered glass screen protectors for it. 

The Fantom, made by XGEAR, is practically scratch resistant, keeps off fingerprints, and is thin enough to not add extra bulk to your device. At 8H hardness, you won’t find this kind of protection from any other screen protector. Then normally retail for $29.99.


Update:  Our three winners have been picked! David, ImmaDroid, and Sean, be sure to check your email!

Prize:  3 (three) Fantom tempered glass screen protectors for the Galaxy Nexus.

How to enter:

1.  In the comments, tell us why you still love your Galaxy Nexus.


Today, at 3PM Pacific, we’ll randomly choose three winners from the comments.

*Winners need to have U.S. addresses.

  • Nole Lilley

    It still does all the work I ask it to, even though the big red V seems to hate it.

  • My Galaxy Nexus is still the best phone I have ever owned. It does everything I want it to do, and the custom rom I’m running (BAMF Paradigm) has it running smooth as silk. It almost never reboots or freezes. Despite newer technology being available, I have no desire to replace it (or my Xoom) anytime soon, and this is all coming from a tech nerd who has to have the latest and greats.

  • teevirus

    I still love my Galaxy Nexus because I am rooted and can still update my phone myself thanks to the awesome android developer community.

  • Aran Miller

    I love the fact that it’s officially the only 4g LTE nexus out. However, I hate that fact and wish that was not the case.

  • KitN

    Still love my Galaxy Nexus because it still gets the latest updates straight from Google. Hope I win. 🙂

  • VICO Y

    I have and still love my GNex! Even though big red tried to tie it down, the dev community made it possible to make this phone so much fun. Its light, slim, and the screen is still superb.

  • nineleveno

    Because it will always be up-to-date with the current version of android (at least the GSM version).

  • Bugless Beast makes it worth it.

  • thower

    Just got it as a penny phone from the big red two months ago. Love it! And all my friends at work tell me to put it away because the screen makes their Iphones look sick.in a bad way.sent from my g nex

  • Dchavarr

    it’s a truly complete phone, it was what converted me from an iPhone to a die hard Android fan.

  • Jacob Thompson

    It is still a solid phone I am using until my new Nexus 4 arrives. The first one had a messed up earpiece speaker

  • Evan Wickes

    I got the GNex on the first day it was available. I still love it since so many developers code for it. If you want to be the first, the Nexus series is the only way to go!!

  • oddity98

    I waited for over two years to get mine after being under impressed by the Bionic and Thunderbolt. I finally stay up all night for the Google announcement. After all that it is over a month of false positives until it was fine ally released. Now I still have and love my gnex! It still amazes me to this day after having my of droid for so long. I plan on keeping this for quite sometime!

  • I love my Galaxy Nexus because, even though its on Verizon, I get the updates way before other phones and the developer community is amazing. Every time I get the urge to get a new phone I see how terrible their updates and developer community is and I remember just how much I love my Galaxy Nexus. Now to mention I love the sexy soft keys I can change to my hearts’ content.

  • James

    Because its gorgeous …

  • Please…

  • I still love this phone because I still get updates from developers every few days, going to be hard to give it up

  • ImmaDroid

    Its a perfect size, its easy on the Eyes, and its a Stock Android experience!

  • I love my toro because it’s a Samsung, it’s a Nexus, and it’s still better than any mid-level phone at that price.

  • I still love mine because it’s got an amazing developer community! And it’s easily customizable once you root it as well.

  • luisrb7

    I got it for 25 bucks from wirefly and because of the amazing developer community it is always running the latest android version not to mention it is sleek

  • duder

    I love my GNex ‘cuz it’s my only phone that I haven’t dropped in the toilet, or other stupid place that you really shouldn’t drop it.

  • Its Sleek, simple, pure Google goodness!

  • I recently got a Note2 as a work phone, but decided to keep my GNex as well because, even after a year, it’s perfect for me – sophisticated, great hardware, clean look, excellent developer support, and has LTE. I’m still 100% stock, and that’s how I plan on keeping it. I appreciate the “true” Android interface even more so now that I have the Note2 and its Touchwiz interface. Even with all the bells and whistles of the Note2, the GNex doesn’t feel overwhelmingly loaded with options, but I still feel like I have control over what I can do with it (unlike crApple and its iTunes bullsh!t). Even if I don’t win this contest, I’ll still be rockin my GNex proudly.

  • Kyleen Blanchard

    Doesn’t have a glass back and it’s still oh so sexy.

  • Roga

    My first Google phone, nuff said.

  • I still love my Nexus because some day the dream I saw of having those docking stations from the pre-release video will come true! Right Verizon? They will come before the Cubs win the Pennant! This year for sure!

  • Because it is mine and it loves me back. It’s a mutual thing….I think.

  • I love my Galaxy Nexus because, even with Verizon, it receives updates before non-Nexus phones. Also, it’s stock Android.

  • I still love my Nexus because I can still load roms on it super easily. Also, I still have my unlimited data plan with it, which is amazing.

  • Jon

    I still love the Nex because it is still one of the most rommable phones out there And almost guaranteed to have ROMs of the next release from Google:; official or not.

  • 9TEN11

    Its a Nexus device on Verizon with LTE

  • Dave Goldstein

    I love my Galaxy Nexus because um..yeah it’s great. This thing would have been great 6 months ago before I broke my screen! 🙂

  • KalEl

    Learned to root, flash, and all that mumbo jumbo guys have been talking about for years on this phone. It does everything I need and I’m never more than a week behind on the latest Android build.

  • I still love my Galaxy Nexus because I can install the latest update from Google unlike Verizon which take forever.

  • diversion

    My G-Nex is durable, beautiful and sings lullabies to me.

    ….Ok, that might just be because I put music on it when I’m sleeping. Nevertheless, it feels like the kind of phone that can last and last. I don’t mind waiting for my upgrade, knowing that I’ll have this lil buddy to play with for months to come.

  • 720 screen, development, LTE…whats not to love?

  • Michael webb

    I love my Galaxy Nexus because it is a beautiful phone that serves me well. Best Phone I’ve owned!

  • Matt Gondek

    I love my Nexus for many reasons, most of which are a result of the little unlock icon I see everytime I turn it on

  • Jem

    Because it is still kicking strong 2 days from a year from release. I can do whatever I would like ROM wise with this phone since the developer community is so strong, and it does what I need to do without fuss or slowness. Truly a great phone, with help from the community.

  • I love the plastic back on my Galaxy Nexus for its durability!

  • John Julian

    Because It Still Does Everything I Need One Year Later.

  • epidemik

    because it’s under contract for another year and still runs as smoothly as the day I bought it.

  • Greyhame

    I still love my GNex because I can tweak it EXACTLY to my liking. It’s my phone and the openness of the nexus program allows me to bend it to my will, and not kowtow to any carrier demands.

  • Jason Pillow

    Just picked up the Galaxy Nexus through Sprint the other day. So far I’m extremely impressed by it. I still haven’t picked up a screen protector for it yet. So this works out nicely =)

  • Todd B

    I love the size, the frequent updates, and the power of the device!

  • Adam Staggenborg

    I love it for the openness. Won’t be upgrading until another one comes around.

  • Byron Galvez

    Words cannot describe why I love it so much.

  • Plane old vanilla Android

  • Bryan Saroza
