Automatic, a company that wants you to become one with your car through an adapter and smartphone app, is hosting a party at next week’s Google I/O and they asked if we could help spread the word by handing out tickets (10 of them!) to our readers, tickets that will also land you their car adapters. Awesome, right? Company doing innovative things with cars and phones wants you to party with them for free in San Francisco and receive free goods – how can you beat that?
The party is sort of like a pre-party for Google I/O in that it goes down the night before Google takes the stage. So on May 27, you can have a little fun before all of the serious stuff takes place and you need to think about code and animations and cloud thingies and compatibility and fragmentation (hah!). There will be “unlimited” drinks (read: open bar), entertainment (like Mario Kart battles), and a bunch of giveaways. Oh, we’ll be there too! (more…)
As Huawei continues its big push this year into the US, they want you to realize that they are about more than just smartphones. While their smartphones are certainly grabbing our attention (Huawei P8 for example), as are the rumors of them possibly creating a Nexus phone, their line-up of accessories shouldn’t be ignored either. And I’m not just talking about the Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch that stole headlines at MWC. Huawei also has a smart wearable/Bluetooth earpiece called the TalkBand B2 that is worth a look.
Before we get into why it’s worth a look, we should probably mention that we are giving five (5) of them away. Oh, it’s also not available yet for purchase, so should you win one, you will be one of the first in the world. Cool, right? (more…)
Through a giveaway currently taking place on the DL Deals Store, you have an opportunity to win the yet-to-be-released Huawei Watch. This smartwatch was shown off during this year’s MWC over in Barcelona, and from what we know so far, it’s a very luxurious looking timepiece. (more…)
To help spread awareness for LG’s VR for G3 headsets, we have in our possession three, count ’em 1, 2, 3 LG G3 headsets to give away. Each is for T-Mobile’s network, so if you are already on T-Mobile or plan on switching to the Uncarrier, these will be a nice little prize for you.
With VR for G3, which is based off of Google Cardboard, G3 owners can experience a somewhat basic virtual reality, complete with games and apps, all of which are available directly from Google Play. The VR for G3 is available directly from LG when you purchase a new G3 and select retailers, plus LG couples a QR code on the box where you can grab a few exclusive VR titles for your enjoyment.
So, if you are interested in winning, let’s get to it. (more…)
Earlier today, we told you about the Aukey 10,000mAh Quick Charge 2.0 battery pack that we recently picked up. It’s awesome, in case you were wondering. It charges devices super fast (up to 60% in 30 minutes). It looks pretty. And it’s reasonably priced at just $30 on Amazon.
We also told you that we may or may not have an extra one lying around the office for you to win. Of course, that is almost always code for, “We are about to give this away to one of you for free.” Sure enough, here we are, giving one away!
Who wants it? (more…)

Oh, and of course, may the Force be with you. (more…)
Thanks to the crew over at Huawei, we have a pretty unique opportunity for a handful of Droid Life readers. Through their Friendly User Testing (FUT) program, five of you will have the chance to test an unannounced smartphone from Huawei before it ever goes public. This program is typically reserved for company representatives and partners, so think of this as a VIP-like opportunity, where you could not only get early access to an unreleased phone, but you will also be able to check out new software features from Huawei.
Keep in mind that this is the company who is rumored (along with LG) to be making the next Nexus phone. It might be a good idea to familiarize yourself with them now.
Sounds fun, right? (more…)
