Since it’s a Thursday (not sure why that means anything), it seems like a great day to continue on with what seems to be a week of giveaways here are Droid Life. We have four $25 Google Play gift cards that are collecting dust here in the office, and thought you might enjoy them. With so many solid apps, games, icon packs, and clock skins floating around in our inbox, we’d love to help you buy them all and alleviate some of that wallet stress with free money.
Who is ready? (more…)
Well, we tried to run this contest last week but failed thanks to a system limitation at AT&T stores. However, MotoMaker is now live and open to full retail/off-contract orders of the Moto X which means we get to give one away to the Droid Life community! That’s right, we’re going to let you customize your own Moto X should you be chosen as our winner. Through MotoMaker.com, you can customize your prize of a 16GB AT&T-ready Moto X any way you’d like. How awesome is that? (more…)
A couple of months ago, we had the pleasure of reviewing Motorola’s new (at the time) S11-FLEX HD bluetooth headphones. Overall, we really enjoyed them, especially for long runs or during rigorous workouts. But what about the version that’s still tailored to HD audio, yet has a more subtle non-workout appearance for other occasions like say, school? With school right around the corner for many, we’re giving away a pair of their non-FLEX brother, the S-11 HD wireless headphones, thanks to our friends at AT&T. (more…)
Even as mobile technology advances year after year, there is one area that continues to be nothing other than a pain point – battery life. We’ve got quad-core processors, X8 Mobile Computing Systems, and 4-PLUS-1 architectures that are all designed to extend the battery life of phones because the actual batteries in them seem to be stuck in 1989. Companies like Mophie are trying to change that in a way. They realize that battery life is essential, but they also understand that many of you use a case to protect your phones. So they’ve created the Juice Pack which is a combination case/battery extender. (more…)
It feels like it has been a while since we last handed out a mega-prize. Well, I take that back – we just gave away two brand new Nexus 7 tablets a couple of weeks ago. But you know what, it’s going to be a slow week in terms of Android news, so we figured we’d spend the time rewarding readers. How does a brand new, un-opened HTC One Google Play Edition sound? Yes, this is the bad boy running stock Android, receiving updates in a hurry (already on Android 4.3), and still manages to carry all of the best parts of HTC’s flagship hardware. We unboxed it and did an over view here. It’s an easy device to love, that’s for sure.
Let’s do it. (more…)
With the new Nexus 7 hitting retailers at the end of last week, today as the official launch day sort of lost some of its excitement. So to help bring back some of that excitement, we’re going to give two of them away! That’s right, two of DL’s readers will walk away with the brand new 2013 Nexus 7, with it’s beautiful FHD display, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, and Android 4.3. The 16GB version of the new N7 runs $229, but this will save two of you from having to pay that price.
The folks at Cruzerlite recently partnered up with Andrew Bell and the Android Foundry to create two special edition TPU cases for their ever-growing line. They sent us over a few samples to show off and then give away to DL readers, so since it’s a holiday week, we thought we’d do that today. We have six of these new Android Foundry cases, along with two EXO cases for the Galaxy S4. Not a bad little contest, right? (more…)
Anyone remember Buzz Launcher? This is the third party launcher that launched as a beta back in March, allowing you to share and install all of the most beautiful home screen setups on the planet with a only few simple clicks. For example, you could spend hours cruising around MyColorScreen trying to come up with an idea for your next setup, but with Buzz Launcher, that entire setup may already be available to download through their marketplace and without having to pick and choose items from Google Play. It’s a pretty brilliant idea, actually, especially for those who are constantly tweaking phone appearances or looking for the next great trend.
We took at a look at this new third party launcher back in April, and came away impressed by its ability to quickly get you the setup of your dreams without much work. We also saw the potential that it could have should its userbase grow and the community involved with it continued to share their home screen setups. (more…)
