Our friends at Spigen have realized the importance of having accessories available at launch for devices like the Nexus 5. Their launch day line-up includes three different screen protectors and three different case types, all in a variety of colors. As long-time followers of the site know, we have been fans of their high-quality and ultra-slim cases for some time, so seeing a handful already available for the new Nexus brings a sparkle to our eyes. So, what do you say we give some away?  (more…)

Contest: We Have 5 Chromecasts to Give Away!

So, I’m not exactly sure why there are five unopened Chromecast devices sitting on my desk, but I do know that they need to go away.  And that means you have a chance to win one. Well, five of you have a chance to win one since there are that many sitting here.

Even though the price shock and impulse buy-worthiness of the Chromecast has disappeared a bit since launch, it’s still one of our favorite new tech products of 2013. The potential is here, we just need Google to open it all up. This is your chance to get in on that potential without spending a dime.  (more…)

Droid Life Annual 2013 NFL Eliminator is Now Open – Winner Takes Home a Phone of Choice

nfl eliminator

In less than a week, the 2013 NFL season officially kicks off with a showdown between the Broncos and Ravens. If you have been a part of the Droid Life community over the last couple of years, you also know that the start of the season means that our annual eliminator challenge is in store. And like in years past, we’re rewarding the end-of-year winner with a phone of choice, valued at up to $650. Since many of us lost out early last year with a week 2 upset, I think I can speak for the crowd when I say that I can’t wait for this year’s challenge to start.

If you aren’t familiar with NFL eliminators, we have some basic rules for you below, along with a link to more in-depth instructions. The basics are:  join for free, pick a winner each week, go the entire season without getting a pick wrong, and you win. It sounds simple, but boy is it tough, especially since you can only use each team once.
