Since the white Nexus 4 finally went live moments ago, we thought the only good way to celebrate the occasion would be by giving one away to an amazing member of the Droid Life community. So, let’s do this. This is a single day contest that ends the same day, meaning we’ll have a winner by this afternoon. Who wants an 8GB white Nexus 4? (more…)
We’re almost into Memorial Day weekend, so why not kick the holiday off with a giveaway? Since most of you will have the next three days off, we’re sure you could easily find a way to spend $10 in the Google Play store using a gift card, right? We have five of them to giveaway! Winners will be chosen tomorrow morning. (more…)
Come Thursday, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available on all four major U.S. wireless carriers. To celebrate, we thought we would hand out a whole bunch of cases and accessories for the device from our friends at Spigen. We reviewed a couple of their cases already – the Ultra Thin Air and GLAS.tR – so that means we have a bunch laying around that need to go out to you, the wonderful Droid Life reader. In fact, we have 17 of their cases to give away, some of which are the Ultra Thin Air while others are the wallet/flip cover style. Who wants one? (more…)
It’s almost Mother’s Day! This means it’s that time of year to thank mom for her hard work in managing the everyday life of a family with a bigger and clearer connection to everything important to her. See where we are going here? If she had a phone like the LG Optimus G Pro with its 5.5″ 1080p display, quad-core processor, multi-tasking capabilities, and brilliant 13MP camera, she could maintain her amazing motherly self in a much more efficient manner. Or she could simply rock out with a sweet new smartphone that’s probably better than yours. (more…)
Google I/O is approaching swiftly, so that means it’s time to fill up our calendars with evening activities, one of which seems to be Lookout Mobile Security’s party. Last year, they asked us to invite a big group of readers from Droid Life to join in on the fun (“fun” meaning free booze and prizes), and have once again asked that we do the same for another 10 members of the DL community.

Who is ready for a contest? Thanks to our friends at Cruzerlite, we have 10 of their Bugdroid Circuit TPU cases to hand out to 10 lucky DL readers. They supplied us with a handful for the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 (cult!), and even the Nexus 4, so this contest should cover the majority of you.
For those not familiar with Cruzerlite cases, they tend to be made of TPU (a pliable plastic), are easy to get on or off of your device (still offer a snug fit), provide ample protection from drops, and contain all of the cutouts needed for your phone to continue to function.
Cruzerlite has pumped out some of the more Android-friendly cases over the last couple of years, with this design being the perfect example. Be sure to check out the rest of their lineup in case the Circuit isn’t meeting your needs. They also offer up Android accessories, like plushies, beanies, and more – a one-stop shop for enthusiasts.
Fanboys, let’s do this! (more…)
Google launched a new contest this morning called “Favorite Things” to celebrate the new look of Google Play (download here), and it could land you a Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Nexus 4 or a Google Play gift card. It’s the easiest of contests and only asks that you Tweet to @GooglePlay, mention one of your favorite things available for sale on Google Play, provide a link, and use the hashtag #favoritethings. It can be a movie, music, book, app, game, magazine or TV show.
You also need to complete the entry form at the info link below. The contest runs until 11:59PM PT on April 24. Appears to be U.S. only.
From the contest page, they list out the prizes as being ten Nexus 10s, seven Nexus 7s, four Nexus 4s, and 100 gift cards. Get to it!
Oh yes, my favorite time of the year has finally arrived. The brackets are out and the NCAA basketball tournament for 2013 is officially 1 day away from starting. For those not fully familiar, at this time every year, businesses see productivity decrease drastically, as office pools and bracket filling commences for the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament. It’s a time for non-sports fans to all of a sudden become sports fans, or to at least decide which mascots are more awesome. It’s a time where anything can happen – shockers, buzzers beaters, and mega-upsets fill our days. We complain about our picks, yell at experts, compare brackets to our friends and colleagues, and completely lose ourselves for a solid month in the madness. In my opinion, there is nothing this good in sports at any other time throughout the year.
To celebrate, we always put together a special Droid Life group, ask you to join in for some good ol’ fashion competition, pick winners in a bracket, and hopefully walk away with some great prizes. (more…)
