Contest: Win an LG Optimus G Pro From AT&T and Droid Life for Father’s Day! (Updated: Winner Picked!)


As a follow-up to our Mother’s Day contest, we have partnered once again with AT&T for another giveaway, only this time we’re rewarding the fathers in the building. With Father’s Day approaching this weekend, we wanted to once again hand an LG Optimus G Pro to lucky DL reader.

The Optimus G Pro is LG’s newest flagship, and is in the oversized phone business of competing with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2. It runs a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, has a 5.5″ FHD (1080p, 400ppi) display, and an “advanced” 13MP camera on the backside. It also runs Android 4.1, can last all day on its 3140mAh battery, contains 32GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot for expansion), and connects to AT&T’s extra speedy LTE network. It may not have an S Pen, but it has an advanced set of software features built specifically with a big screen in mind.

You can buy the LG Optimus G pro from AT&T today for $199 on new contract.

Who wants to win one?Β

  • Will Frame

    This is an excellent phone. Much smoother than the GS4 and the screen is great. Love the SMS popup and some of the other little LG tweaks, too.

    Oh, and it’s only the second Android phone (first was Optimus G) that will let you send any video as an MMS because it can compress them just like iOS.

  • Jason Bittner

    switching to ATT soon and would love to not need to buy a phone

    Sleep in

  • Danny

    Put CM on it

  • DanWazz

    Like any good father, I would compare it to a Nexus device, and tell it to be more like it. Nexus went to college and I bet his dad is so proud. What have you done LG Optimus G Pro? Got yourself tied down too young and sold your dreams for a contract. Does that G stand for “Gimmie some money, Dad?” cause that’s the only time you call! Then I would tell it to stop crying and act like a man, dammit! Nexus never cries.

  • Marikel Lika

    If the LG Optimus G was my son, I’d buy him all the best accessories (Otterbox, screen protectors, car charger, SD Card), and I’d probably “root” for him (;

  • jjl207

    If I were it’s father, I would do the traditional thing and take it to a baseball game. The timelessness of the game dovetails nicely with the timelessness of family.

  • Droidzilla

    I would tell him how it’s OK that Samsung didn’t invite him to its press event, and how we’re going to make an even BETTER press event. But we’d really just sit at home and play GT5.

  • Adam Staggenborg

    Play games with it

  • Landon Landsiedel

    I would take him to the beach and have him explore all the wonder things there are in the ocean. Then I would take him to see a movie and eat some ice cream!

  • Justtyn Hutcheson

    I would find him a sweet, sweet terminal to plug into, one who knows a thing or 2 about getting root access. You’re never too young to get rooted. After that’s done, we can bond over a nice debloat, and maybe go through a few homescreen setups to get him looking as good as he’s feelin.
