Congress Review by muzikjay

It has been INCREDIBLY difficult to pick winners with such an amazing assortment of reviews. For that reason, I wanted to take a moment to share some of (what I think) are the top reviews over the past four days. When choosing the winners we often had to narrow it down to 5 or 7 that all could have easily won… unfortunately we can only announce one winner!

June 10th:

For those still eager to win a device, the contest continues today and we’ll be announcing yet another winner tomorrow so keep the goods coming! I want to let you know that while we can’t give phones to EVERYONE who submits an awesome review, we really do appreciate the participation of every single person involved.

Thanks, congrats and good luck to all!

  1. Thanks for the mention!

  2. I hope people fully understand how ridiculously hard it is to pick winners!

  3. And congrats to the winners! (Comments could really use an edit button if possible)

  4. got on the “top picks” for ALL three days, apparently i’m doing something right.

    but he’s still leaning towards people with video reviews, and it kind of irks me that people winning these phones are just going to ebay them or something.

    oh well, i’ll keep making reviews until i run out of apps i have experience with from shy short 30 days romp with a Hero on Sprint.

  5. WOW. I never actually expected to win! Thank you so much guys! I’m so happy!! :D

  6. I made the honorable mentions list!! Whoohoo thanks phandroid! Congrats to the winners.

  7. Osbor,

    We’re not leaning toward reviews with videos, believe it or not. In fact we were almost TRYING to find winners without videos because of statements like that. But it’s just that most the top picks happen to have them, and.. they’re good reviews. Without the videos. They’re just good. Is there some correlation between people willing to write out and format really top notch reviews and people who are willing to go a step further and record (or find an existing) video? I dunno.
    I wouldn’t watch a video unless I liked what I read anyway.
    So no, by no means are we looking for reviews with videos. But they don’t hurt. ;)

  8. I suggest giving this contest some REAL life: instead of giving the winners phones, give them girls that look like the one in the picture with the “and the winner is…” sign!
    Or give them both! (Hot chicks & hot phones FTWWWWW)

  9. OMG!! i can’t believe i won! this is so awesome! and so great to get mentions for all my other reviews! thanks so much! I’m super hyped right now haha! And no worries guys, I have no intentions of selling my EVO when I get it. Just selling my Hero ;-) and you don’t need video. I didn’t have video in any of mine.

  10. Thanks phandroid for giving credit to people that wrote great reviews but didn’t win. Congrats to all that have one!

  11. congrats to the winners. enjoy your prizes. I take pride in being mentioned each week as a runner up :)

  12. Wow, thanks you guys so much. I am honored. Congratulations to everyone who won and everyone else mentioned. :)

  13. Congrats to all the winners AND everyone who got mentioned! And thanks to Phandroid for giving me the mention again as well! Even if I don’t take away a prize, its been really fun getting to do the reviews. More to come, stay tuned!

  14. yayyyyyy every review i did reached this list…im felling good about that…an evo 4g would feel better though :P check out my review on Layar3.0

  15. Is it just me, or am I not able to send a PM to Rob? Whatever I send disappears, nowhere to be found in my sent folder. Or maybe he is getting them and I’m just spamming his inbox. If the latter’s the case… oops!

  16. @coasterman927 – There is a box underneath the message box that you have to check. It says something like, “send copy of this message to your Sent folder” =) I was thinking the same thing before i saw that. I don’t want anything to mess this up haha

  17. Wow, I didn’t expect to win! Thanks guys. :)

    I am still going to write some reviews though, to hopefully encourage others to do so. Reviews make games/apps a whole lot easier to buy, and I think everyone should do at least one!

    My review was long, but I didn’t take any screenshots or videos–I used ones already available online. Don’t think you have to do EVERYTHING on your own!

    Good luck to future participants. :)

  18. @muzikJay – Oh man I’m so smart. I didn’t notice that. And congratulations to you and all the other winners!

  19. @coasterman927 – No prob. Congrats to you too and the other winners. This is really great! Now is just the waiting game. Until I get the confirmation, it still feels too good to be true lol.

  20. Im going to write down the winners names and i bet only a few if any will be here in 2 months

  21. Damn I was close :-P

  22. Congratulations to all the winners and the honorable mentions! I’m proud to be one of the honorable mentions, but I’m gonna keep on trying because my G1 is getting long in the tooth — even if it has the awesome CM5.0.7! =D

  23. Wow thanks for the mention :) didn’t expect to get anywhere close XD

  24. @Bigmerf – I’ve had this site bookmarked ever since before I even got my Android phone. I check up on it everyday. I’m gonna be here for a loooong time. :)

  25. @Bigmerf – Same here. I’m not going anywhere. :)

  26. Thanks phandroid happy to be mentioned congrats to the others!

  27. Thanks for the honorable mention. I’ll keep trying.

  28. Even if, the point in this contest isn’t to get members so much as it is to start filling AA with quality reviews. :)

  29. @Talton – That’s a really smart way to make that happen haha. really smart actually. Damn, I would’ve never thought of that

  30. not sarcasm by the way =)

  31. congrats to the winner, and thanks for the mention!! ima keep trying!!!
