Contest: Win an LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live From Droid Life!

Android Wear is here in the form on the Samsung Gear Live (review) and LG G Watch (review). It’s early for the new wearable platform, which means it has a lot of growing to do before most of you need it in your life. With that said, we know that many of you are itching to try it out, but may not want to fork out the $200 it currently requires to get one of these on your wrist. So, we are here to give one of each away to two amazing DL readers. That’s right, because we love you, you have a chance to win either a G Watch or a Gear Live.  (more…)

Contest: $200 in Google Play Gift Cards Up for Grabs From Droid Life!

We teased this last night on Twitter, because well, teasing is fun from time to time. And since a tease only means something if you follow through with it, it is now time to do just that. We are giving away $200 in Google Play gift cards for the hell of it! It feels like it has been a minute since we gave something away – oh wait, it has only been a minute. What I mean is, it has been a while since we gave away a whole bunch of gift cards for you to do with as you please. Maybe one of you will be able to spend it on games for that shiny, new NVIDIA SHIELD.

The contest is easy as usual – jump into the Rafflecopter widget below and complete as many of the tasks as you like. None are mandatory, so pick and choose the options you are most comfortable with (or easiest). The more you complete, the better your chances are, though.

Ready?  (more…)

Know what to get your dad (or possibly yourself) for Father’s Day? Well, if you haven’t quite figured it out yet, and your dad just so happens to be a gamer, then this contest should do you well. We have partnered with NVIDIA to give away a SHIELD portable gaming console, perfect for the dad that is always on the go, but still needs access to his favorite mobile games.

SHIELD is still one of the cooler niche Android products available, featuring a built-in 5″ HD display, Tegra 4 processor with a 72-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU, console-grade controls, high-fidelity speakers, access to the GRID Cloud Gaming beta, and now comes running Android 4.4+ with lots of proprietary tweaks from NVIDIA to give you an awesome gaming experience, no matter where you are located.

Contest: We are Giving Away 10 Tickets to Lookout’s Google I/O Party!

Like we have done for the last couple of years, we are once again partnering with Lookout to give away a bunch of tickets to their Google I/O party! Not familiar with Lookout? Just know that they are really into security on your Android phone – like really into it. Their products can help you find your lost phone, remotely wipe said lost phone, scan apps for malware, offer you security advice, and even let you backup contacts and media. They also stay up on malware trends around the industry and even created a Heartbleed scanner during that massive security ordeal.

Oh, they like to party during Google I/O too. For as far back as I can remember, Lookout has been hosting a pre-I/O party that seems to grow each year and is always a lot of fun. There are free prizes to the first who show up (this time from Lookout and T-Mobile), food, drinks, and more. We will also be in attendance! The last couple of years we were able to meet a handful of DL readers, which was awesome.

If you will be available in San Francisco on Tuesday, June 24, and would like to join us at the party, then get ready, because we have 10 tickets to give away. Keep in mind that those 10 tickets allow you to bring a friend as well, so we are really giving away 20 spots, if you think about it.  (more…)
