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…)
Wood fiends who own a Galaxy S5 can finally get their fix, thanks to the latest release from Portland, OR-based company, Toast. We have talked about this company plenty of times (and have held giveaways), posted up a complete inside look into their factory here in Portland, and just yesterday, they released their newest creation – hand-made wood covers for Samsung’s latest flagship device, the Galaxy S5.

We have teamed up with the good folks at NVIDIA, offering you a chance to win a brand new SHIELD portable gaming console, paired with a $15 Google Play gift card for good measure. You can use the gift card to pick up a number of Tegra-powered games on Google Play, or anything else that your heart desires.
SHIELD is still one of the cooler niche Android products, 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.
To make things easy and fair for everyone, we will use our trusted Rafflecopter widget. Follow the instructions on the widget below, and good luck! (more…)
To kick off this new week, we have teamed up with Poweramp and Negri Electronics for a massive international, multi-site giveaway of five different flagship phones. To celebrate their release of build 555 of Poweramp, next week, all of you will have a chance to win either a Galaxy S5 (our review), LG G2, HTC One (M8) (our review), Nexus 5, or Galaxy Note 3. Not bad, right? (more…)
The contest called “Smash the Past” by OnePlus One that could land you one of their new flagship phones for $1 is now taking entries. The contest, for those not familiar, asks that you smash your phone on video to prove that you deserve a brand new OnePlus One, assuming you are one of the 100 chosen. Thing is, this isn’t exactly the greatest contest if you consider a number of factors. (more…)
I stumbled upon an unused $50 Google Play gift card this afternoon while tidying up the office and though, “Why not give this away?” So yeah, let’s do just that.
This will go down as one of the quickest contests in DL history, as you only have three hours to get in. Thankfully, the rules are simple. All you have to do is follow the directions in the Rafflecopter widget below, which essentially just asks that you leave a comment. We choose our winner through Rafflecopter though, so make sure to tell it that you left a comment.
Since Google is now selling its Nest Thermostat on Google Play, and we know that the $249 price for something like a home thermostat is turning more than a few of you off, we wanted to give a couple away. We have been Nest users for over a year now (our review) and still think it’s one of the best Android accessories you will ever purchase. To say that we wish everyone could experience a Nest, is an understatement.
But again, the $249 price tag is no joke, so to help ease the wallet strain on a couple of you, we have two to give away to the DL community.
The contest, like others, uses Rafflecopter to give you multiple chances for entry, while also making it easy to manage on our end. You don’t have to do all of the steps below, but the more you do, the more entries you will receive.

If you are a fan of MKBHD or have seen our writeup on the Facets wallpaper app, then the name Justin Maller may sound familiar. Last year, he set out to release a different digital piece of art each day. Now that he has completed that task, the world was clamoring for an easy way to access his work, so Justin created a Facets wallpaper application for both Android and iOS.
To celebrate the launch of both applications, Justin offered us two 12 x 12 art prints to give away to our readers. Available is a print of Prowl (the lion) and a print of Totem (the dragon). Both feature bright colors, excellent design qualities, and can be had by you for the price of nothing.
As always, we will use Rafflecopter to make sure everyone who wants to win a print has a fair way of doing so. On Rafflecopter, there is an option to leave a comment in the section below, featuring a screenshot of your homescreen with a wallpaper from the Facets application. The wallpaper app is available through Google Play for just $0.99, however, it is not mandatory to do that. If you don’t have Facets, just leave a comment with which print you would like to win.
Let’s do this. (more…)
