Happy Holidroid Contest: Random Winner Giveaway!


If you’re unsure what this whole “Holidroid Contest” thing is all about, be prepared to get excited. From November 24th through December 25th, Phandroid is giving away a Kindle Fire every single day along with other great prizes like the Galaxy Nexus Galaxy Tabs, JAMBOX, SmarTouch Gloves, Android Phones, Android T-Shirts, Seidio Vouchers and more. Read our announcement post for details.

Yesterday’s Winner

Yesterday’s contestants were asked to answer a trivia question: what were Kevin’s five favorite Android apps as detailed by him in his first ever post published on Android? The first to post the correct answer at the contest thread at was user cas1115.

Congratulations on all the awesome stuff you won! Santa or a delivery driver (we’re not exactly sure which yet) will bring you an Amazon Kindle Fire, an HTC EVO Design 4G, a $30 Siedio voucher and Isotoner Smartouch gloves! As for today’s winner? That has yet to be determined but here are all the things they’ll be getting.

Amazon Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire could be this holiday’s hottest product: at only $199 it’s not only one of the most  affordable Android tablets, it’s also one of the best. That’s a killer combination. With a beautiful UI, great battery life, carefully curated apps/games, and an amazing array of media options thanks to Amazon’s Digital Content Ecosystem… the Kindle Fire is a sure win. Good luck winning one in our contest, but at only $199 it’s probably worth buying one just in case!

Samsung Infuse 4G

The Samsung Infuse 4G is a Galaxy S phone for AT&T that’s chock full of awesome features. If the huge 4.5 inch Super AMOLED display inside isn’t enough, it also has HSPA+ radios, a front-facing camera and a very good chipset in its 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor (single core). Simply put, anyone would want to take this one out of their stocking and put it into their pockets right away. A special shout out to Radio Shack for providing this great device for our giveaway. If you don’t take home the prize be sure to check out their great selection of smartphones online and in-store.


Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves

Every single holiday season these SmarTouch smartphone gloves are consistently one of my favorite gift giving items. They eloquently solve one of the most fundamental problems a tech lover faces: using your device in cold weather. Wearing gloves usually prevents your touchscreen from working: take your phone out, take your glove off, use your phone, hand gets gold, shove phone in pocket, rush to get glove on. NO MORE! Isotoner’s SmarTouch gloves, designed in my colors and sizes for both men and women, has technology that passes the electrons your body gives off, through the gloves, onto the capacitive screen and allowing it to work. VOILA! Seriously. It works. Trust me. Try it… and you’ll love them forever.

Seidio $30 Voucher

With so much smartphone use comes battery drain. Thankfully, Seidio makes some awesome extended batteries that fit many smartphones, allowing you to get longer battery life with the same device. No more toting around a charger everywhere you go: just snag a Seidio and call it a day! Seidio also makes cases, holsters, and other great accessories for your smartphones.Check them all out here.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    Androidforums, much differnt reason. when i got into rooting and ROMing no other forum on the interwebs had the answers like and the group of people who participate are aces.

    The up to date info along with the tips and tricks from forum members makes this pair the best relationship ever (besides my own marriage) but it’s getting really close to comparing cause the Mrs. tells me she’s gonna throw my phone in the disposal. I guess that means i spend too much time with it.

  63. I read phandroid everyday for up to minute info on what is new in the android world and tips to keep my old technology running. Since I still run a DX it’s good to know tips and tricks on whats currently hot in the android world, and I can say my phone wouldn’t be half of what it is without you guys.

  64. Basically, because it’s the best Android news site I’ve read yet. Plus I’m waiting on pins and needles for any news about the GSM Galaxy Nexus hitting the US.

  65. I visit Phandroid everyday to read about the latest android apps and technology.

  66. I check phandroid every day because it gives me the latest news about android phones and apps, but lately I check every hour to see news about the new GALAXY NEXUS! I NEED ONE FOR ATT!!!

  67. I read Phandroid cause most of times it’s the 1st (and reliable) blog to post fresh news about Android.

    I feel phandroid wrote by people that loves android, rather than writing just for money.
    I follow android’s world since 2 years as of now and phandroid was my 1st source :)

  68. Phandroid is one of the key sites I visit for legit android news. While other sites like engadget provide good news for android, they aren’t always on top of things as Phandroid is. I keep coming back because I want to stay in the loop and am always in the loop thanks to you guys. So if I don’t win anything, thanks for keeping me up to date in the world of our favorite little green robot!

  87. Because it’s one of the only places I’ve found with good writers who cover the less popular news about Android, news that the bigger sites don’t bother to even mention.

  88. I read Phandroid several times a day. Mostly to keep up to date on android devices, apps, and reviews. I spend a lot of time going through the forums as well since the community can’t be beat. It’s also a great way to keep me occupied when I should be working.

  89. I read Phandroid because Android as a platform is growing so fast and it is too hard to keep up.  Phandroid helps weed out the crap and give me the information I desire.  Phandroid gives me that one stop shop I need.

  98. i go on phandroid everyday because its probably the only site i trust.i go here constantly,almost every time i pick up my phone,just to see if there’s anything new to read. the articles are informative,and there’s a certain sense of humor here,an undertone in the articles.i feel like if i was to ever make a website,it would probably be alot like this,i just love android,ive loved it ever since the G1 came out (my GF got it,and i was stuck with the BB Storm at the time,and i was so jealous).i’ve had android phones ever since they became available on verizon with the original droid.ive never been on android forums,honestly,because ive never needed to,ive been perfectly happy with this site. but maybe since you keep mentioning it so much,i’ll go check it out when i get done with this.

  109. I’ve been a android phoner since the early days with HTC/T-moblile and Phandroid is my go to for android news.

  110. I read because I love learning about all the new up to date android info :) 

  111. I read Phandroid because the articles provide timely and accurate information about all things Android. I also enjoy the writing style of the posts. As an Android fan, these characteristics are important to me and I haven’t been disappointed by Phandroid.

  112. I read Phandroid every day for the fun writing style and the awesome blue Phandroid mascot.

  113. I like to stay informed with the best Android news.. so I turn to you!

  114. I read to keep up with the latest news, and for the deals. That’s how I got my Nexus S.

  115. I read phandroid because you guys post breaking news first and dont report on lame apps or opinions like some other sites do.

  116. i read it cause i see amazing titles on my twitter xD

  117. This was the first website that I found out when I first discovered Android. And been coming back ever since them. Love the way news is reported (despite the funny and random typos there and there)!
    The forums was also where the community there helped me pick out my first Android phone.

  118. I come to because I am in love with technology and mobile devices.

  119. I like reading Phandroid and every day because I am an android fan. Phandroid provides plenty of juicy news regarding devices and apps.

    Recently I found out about Go Launcher Ex on which has been fantastic to use on my droid 3. Things like this keep me coming back every day. Thanks for your hard work guys!

  120. I read Phandroid and for the “articles” of course! Granted there aren’t any scantily-clad women like a certain magazine to distract me, but I recently migrated over to Android phones and the “articles” and “forums” (unrelated to the other magazine) are helpful in maximizing my phone productivity and keeping up-to-date on new developments in the mobile realm. So, Phandroid, what about adding some “pictures” ;)

  121. The excellent editors covering android news and devices, and the great forum community.

  122. I read phandroid each day so I can show my ‘tech savy’  bf how much better Android is over Apple   :)

  123. Because when it comes to android info, you guys are it.

  124. Your site posts EVERYTHING related to android. It is the most up to date articles regarding my favorite OS. Plus you engage/involve your readers through great giveaways!!!

  125. I love technology. I been reading every day about New tech for android to impress my friends

  126. The people on AndroidForums (especially in the DX forum).

  127. I read because you are dedicated to bringing me just android news. I like a blog without all the apple.

  128. You’re really asking why I visit Phandroid every day?

    You should be asking why people wouldn’t?
    That’s a much harder question.

    I DO because I feel like I know you guys personally (creepy, right?). I don’t, but it feels like I do. I can tell almost instantly who is writing the post I am reading. I don’t even have to look at the top author line. You all have such unique and awesome writing styles. Chris’ is especially unique.

    You also value your readers (or so it seems!). Most sites just post a post and never deal with their readers. You guys all reply to comments, and do awesome giveaways. It’s great! If someone has a problem, you address it right away.

    Also, I like how honest you guys are. It is very hard to find any bias in any of the posts on this site. A lot of sites, especially BGR, are super biased towards one company (Apple), and the only good part of the post is reading the Troll-ish comments.

    Lastly, I like the community here. When you visit a site like BGR, you cannot interact with anyone. There are so many trolls on most sites that it’s not even fun to post comments. You will most likely get a troll commenting back with some smartass reply. Here, if you have a question, someone will usually answer it for you, or point you in the direction where you can find help. And best of all, there are none (or very few) trolls on this site. Either I don’t see them, or you guys do a great job of cleaning the comments!

  130. A little green robot tells me to.

  133. What gets me to read is that  I like to help test out new roms for my phone especially anything that has to do with removal of CIQ is great for me. Phandroid keeps me logged on for the chance to win neat prizes and its also great place to learn about the new apps available as well as the new phones out.

  134. I read Phandroid and the forums every day because of the great community support, which unseen anywhere else on the web.

  135. i read phandroid to find out when verizon is finally gonna release the galaxy nexus

  137. I read Phandroid to get the lasted information of all Android related information in one place. I like to know what new phones and devices come out. What policies are influenced by the android platform, and not to forget the awesome contests that happen here. :)

  145. I wish I only checked the site once a day! Problem is  I have what some would call an  “android addiction”. I check the site, twitter feed, and forums at least hourly. has a huge community of various knowledge levels so I can both learn something and help out. This has become my “goto” place for all things android!

  146. Everything Android!!!  Phones, Apps, and of course PRIZES!!!!

  147. The fact that you are the only reliable source of android news, and that you have more of them than any other site is what keeps me coming back!

  148. I actually started reading phandroid just for the holiday contest, but after refreshing a million times on twitter i actually started reading the actual articles that popped up and i thought they were extremely interesting and well written. So congrats this contest actually sucked me into going on phandroid everyday and I will continue to read the articles even after this holiday contest is over.

  154. I read this site for one reason and one reason only — Chris Chavez! Really, I can’t believe you guys would even ask such a question =p

  155. I’ve been a (lurking) member of Android Forums for some time now. I joined because so many members are so knowledgeable in all aspects of Android. However, my current obsession is the Galaxy Nexus forum….the epic “when is the GNex going to be released” thread, of course. Been reading that thread since day 1!!

  156. I met my gf here on AF and I am a hardcore android nerd

  157. I visit multiple times per day to a) goof off at work, and b) see what interesting/amazing/informative/entertaining info has been posted recently.

  158. I read Phandroid everyday because of these awesome contests!

  159. I read this site every day, multiple times a day. Why? Because it is the highest-quality, most reliable, and fairest source of mobile technology news I have found. Even when reporting on things not concerning Android, Phandroid never fails to be fair, unbiased, and in short: Amazing.

  183. I check out Phandroid everyday for their exclusives, unique take on Android news, and of course, their awesome give-a-ways!  

  184. A new android device comes out almost every other day and Phandroid keeps me informed of which bad-ass phone to buy next. I still remember when there was only 5~6 phones in the phone section when I first got my HTC magic. He’s been in the retired section for a long time now.

  191. I like gadgets and your way reporting on them I love. Cheers

  192. Phandroid is pretty much the Android lover’s digest for me. I get to hear the latest updates about ridiculous Apple Lawsuit claims, the most recent Nexus sightings, and some well-balanced app reviews without having to sift through Engadget, BGR or the others.

  193. I read Phandroid every day because you guys always have the quickest updates and usually the most important ones without posting about the stuff no one cares about!

  218. I’ve been following Phandroid, for a long, long time. I pre-ordered my G1, as soon as I did I spent quite a few weeks discovering new/fan sites such as Phandroid. No matter what, I always resort back to Phandroid because you guys always have the news, I started using Google reader recently, I notice on a daily basis how Phandroid gets stories before everyone else. It’s extremely impressive. I love Phandroid. If Phandroid wasn’t around, I’d have less knowledge of whats going on in the world of Android. You guys are always on top of it. And I am very thankful for that!

    You guys even put together some of the best give away’s ever, though I haven’t won, I try to participate in every one I can, I appreciate it. You guys care about us readers, which is a rare find.

  219. I read because I HAVE to have the latest and greatest android news! Why do I need to go anywhere else??

  221. Androids are sexy. 

  222. Phandroid by far is the best Android blog on the net. News hits here first before any other site out there!

  223. I love coming to a community that tries to connect to the reader. The post at Phandroid are written in such a way that allow the reader to connect with the writer. I also like the committment that the Phandroid team has to the site. Phandroid delivers android news to to us 24/7 everyday of the week. Great job guys!!!

  224. I read phandroid everyday because you’ve got all the android related info/news all in one place.

  230. I check phandroid everyday to get news on the galaxy nexus (i want that phone!!!!!!)   and also to learn about the current state of everything android related :)

  231. I’ve been reading Phandroid for several months now because I’m finally making the jump from a basic Samsung Intensity phone up to a smartphone. Naturally I want the best, so reading the great articles here as well as the posts on the forums have given me the information I need to make the right choice. Guess what that choice was? The Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I’m a Verizon customer and needless to say, I can’t wait any longer! I’ve wanted a smartphone for so long now, and the Galaxy Nexus is the Cadillac of Android smartphones. The first thing I’m going to do when I get my Galaxy Nexus is take a picture of it sitting next to the Samsung Intensity I’m using now :)  

    Thanks for helping me make the best, most informed decision possible when it came to choosing the Android device that will best fit my needs. You guys rock!!

  232. Its part of the fews sites i bookmarked for android/gadget news. 

  233. I read phandroid to not be as big a dummy about my phone as I would be otherwise.

  234. I visit and read phandroid more than 10 times a day because I have nothing better to do but mainly because I simply love android with all my heart and reading news about it fills my heart with joy. There’s also usually a decent amount of comments on articles that way I don’t have to spend my time reading comments from than the article unlike some other sites that are filled with comments.

    Phandroid forever. <3

  235. I read this to know when my phone is getting Ice Cream Sandwich officially or unofficially! (It might never be happenning :-( ) So give me a Galaxy Nexus dammit!

  236. I like to read because I am a fan of Android!!!

  237. Im on here every day, severial times a day.

  238. I read Phandroid and everyday because, at first, my husband got me hooked. But now, I realize how useful Android is and – to be honest – know more than my husband.

  239. It’s the news and updates.  But since the contest started, news, updates, and the chance to win something great. Thanks.

  240. I read phandroid every day because it writes on the most diverse android news. Plus it doesnt hurt that you guys do all these amazing contests. :)

  241. Everybody is always asking me about all things Android, so I keep coming back to this site to find out all the latest gossip (I’m talking to you Galaxy Nexus!), news and upcoming events. One day, I hope to find myself in a position where everyone will be hanging on my every word, as they due to you and yours.

  242. I read Phandroid because it is blue.

  243. I read phandroid because I like to stay on the loop of technology. Especially when that news involves things that could make my life both more fun and easier.

  244. I read phandroid so I can impress my friends with my superior android knowledge. 

  245. I read because they have more and better articles about Android than any other site.  Also, their Holidroid contest is amazing!

  246. I started reading phandroid when I found it on google while looking for support for my very glitchy sidekick 4g. Same for android forum. They have both proven vry helpful, informative, and entertaining

  247. I read both of these sites Because it has android news,has great giveaways, great articles, funny, and makes fun of apple. This is awesome. Some people will say I’m kissing ass but maybe I am lol. I’m going to keep it short and sweet hopefully I win. Plus you guys also have the news before many other sites. Good luck everyone.

  248. To learn about New technology and show off to my friends

  249. FUN FUN FUN!!!! Great reviews and great news, keeps me hooked

  250. I read Phandroid every day because I can’t wait for Galaxy Nexus and know Phandroid will be the first place where I will find out about it. And to try and catch sweet giveaways. I am still mourning not winning anything in that sweet Tegra 2 giveaway.

  251. If you know me, you know that I am just a little obsessed with all that is android, so I read phandroid every day via google reader because I have to keep up with my android news. 

  252. Why do I read Phandroid every day? Well, it’s quite simple really.  The writing is excellent, I’m interested in the topics covered, the staff is very friendly, and the news is current.  I pride myself in knowing the most up-to-date tech news, and this is the place to get it.  These are the reasons that I refresh Phandroid over 25 times a day.  

  253. I read Phandroid and am a member of androidforums because they are the best source for everything Android.

  254. I visit phandroid for the latest news and the forums for tips and tricks.

  255. Honestly I come here because you guys post stuff more accurately and faster than the other boards – and I’m interested in all things android (especially the Galaxy Nexus since I’m still using the ORIGINAL Motorola Droid and am up for 2 year renewal on Verizon)

  256. I feel the urge to always stay on top of current news, only I choose android news because it is obviously the best type. Oh and is the only place I can trust to bring me the most important news.

  257. I’ve been reading Phandroid since I first got my Droid in November ’09 because I think it’s one of the best sites for Android-related news and articles.

  258. I come to Phandroid every day because of the content. It really fits me perfectly! The news is always something I want to read and nothing that I dont. The Android app is awesome as well. Everyone I know comes to me for phone info because Phandroid always keeps me up to date!

  259. I read daily because it’s a more reliable and centralized source for me to catch up on Android related news. I work in the mobile industry, so it’s crucial that I have the latest need and facts for my customers. The App makes getting the news extremely convenient, and it’s easy to add to customers new phones while explaining how to use the Market.

  260. Free stuff!
    Significant news/details all Android related…
    Info on that Galaxy!!!

  261. I read Phandroid everyday, because not only does it provide the most up to date news on Android, but it is the best source for general tech news as well. More gadgets good!

  262. I come here to read the latest specific android news to learn about different phones that are releasing and software to make them better. Now I come more frequently for the contest : D

  264. Because you guys rock

  265. I check every day throughout the day, Phandroid is on my iGoogle page, to read the latest and greatest Android news.

  267. For the variety and opinions on Android and Android devices. Good reviews, and the first Android site I started following.

  268. I love Phandroid, but honestly I come back every day because you’re always my top post on Google Reader!

  269. Because its number 1source for anything droid related I also enjoy reading the fourms everyone is so nice and helpful and the biggest reason it not a huge corp company ur the little guys and we gotta protect phandroid and android fourma from big brother lol

  270. I visit & read Phandroid every day to stay up to date on all things Android – especially the exclusives! Aside from working with Android as part of my job, staying up to date is key in maintaining an Android open-source library ( and keeping my own ‘daily-driver’ handset on the bleeding edge…

  271. I enjoy phandroid because it has the latest android news and provides me with a way to ease my obsession.  I also greatly enjoy the reviews and awesome contests.

  272. These days, I check in daily for updates about Ice Cream Sandwich. Can’t wait for the post that announces that Motorola is updating the Droid 3!

  273. I read phandroid every day for that latest Android news of course and I can’t deny I’d sure like to win a Galaxy Nexus!

  274. I read phandroid and the forums as a form on edutainment. I dont have any android devices, but would very much like to have one. I like to stay on top of things, like carrier IQ. Theres also a feeling of camaraderie, more than just being anti-apple. Staying up to date, by the second, on all news celluar and tablets. More often than not, the source of ‘information’ can be found on the forums. Soon to be copied by the plethora of mediocre phandroid clones (ya. you know exactly the one im talking about!) with no credit given. I <3 phandroid.

  275. I read this site to get the latest informationa nd reviews for my Android phone.

  276. To know WTF is going on, that’s why!

  277. I always try to get the beat out of my android phone and for that reason I trust Androidforums and to have my back.

  278. Well written articles, interesting news, and of course, this contest! Can’t wait to win this baby:)

  279. The galaxy nexus updates at this point! Besides now…the most up to date android news for my nerdgasms

  280. Phandroid has been Android from the start. Everything I have learned has been from your site. From the news to the forums, none better. Thank you.

  281. I originally joined androidforums (user Vap1d-) due to a fairly active community around the device I had at the time (an imported GT-I7500).  I pop in to phandroid frequently.  I enjoy android overload as well as most other articles.  Chavez’s fun take on stuff is another reason.

  282. Because, it is focused on Android unlike Engadget. Also, this has an app which allows me to check on new topics instantly. The only reason why i go to android forums is so that i can check for new rom updates on my old Ally, and some fun topics in the Android Lounge. Also, because you guys are hosting a give-away, who wouldnt check here 24/7?

  283. I have visiting since the G1 was released. It is the place to go for Android news!

  284. I read Phandroid many times every day.  The site is ALWAYS running in one of my computer’s browser tabs, and is the ‘home’ page on my Android smartphone browser.  The knowledge I gain helps me stay on top of the incredibly fast-paced world of technology today.  Back at the office, I am considered the local guru, and the go-to person to solve all kinds of smartphone issues.  Gosh, I LOVE my job!

  285. Its all about the Phandroid App that is available in the market.

  286. I read phandroid multiple times a day. Every spare chance I get, I check in via Google Reader on my phone or PC, and keep up with the very latest Android news!

  287. Phandroid is the BEST site for all things Android. I need all the Android I can get!!!

  288. I read phandroid and androidforums because you guys always have the best news and get the news first more than other sites. You guys have a lot of cool things and contest (and I for one love free stuff) I really hope I win but good luck to everyone else and yes I am being a kiss ass lol.

  289. Google Reader brings me here every day.

  290. I read both Phandroid and, follow Phandroid on Twitter, and have Phandroid and Rob Jackson in my Google+ circles because, well, I CLEARLY have a  problem.  To be honest, my wife and my employer would probably be weirded out and pissed – respectively – if they knew how much time I really spent on these sites. But, you guys have the goods.  It’s undeniable. 

  291. Just the knowledge about everything android.  I love it.

  292. I love hearing about the new and exciting stuff Android is coming out with every day!

  293. I come here to stay up to date on all things Android.

  294. i read it everyday so i can keep up on the latest in android news. 

  295. I’m a new Android user (rooted Nook color), and I’m hooked! I check Phandroid to learn from other users and to find out what’s on the horizon. Finally a Holidroid contest I have a chance of winning!

  296. Because I am and Android enthusiast- and this is a well organized blog with frequent and accurate updates.  Unlike other websites that don’t understand the meaning of ‘confirmed’.

  297. I read Android Forums because it is the best place to get android news and updates

  298. I read Phandroid everyday because I like staying up to date on Android news. The Android world moves so fast, and I love to stay on top of it all. Phandroid usually has the most current news, and I read everything they have to offer.  :)

  299. I read phandroid because it keeps me up to date and it can be entertaining

  300. Personally, I read this every day because I’m a tech nerd. I’m also, unusually, a music teacher, and a student last week came into my room while I was checking Phandroid and asked if it was a dating site. I just stared at him and said “Phandroid. Phan. Droid. PHAN. DROID.” He still didn’t get it, so I said “you know I’m married, right?” and he said “well… maybe it isn’t going well.” *sigh* So I had to explain that a) I’m happily married and b) the truth isn’t THAT much cooler than a dating site. No, it’s a tech dork site, not a dating site. And yet the kids still love me.

  301. I come to Phandroid for everything Android, but lately it’s been for Galaxy Nexus news =D

  302. first rate reporting on the latest Android news brings me back every day to Phandroid, not to mention amazing contests such as Holidroid!

  303. I come for some of the quickest news on the latest android related stuff. Thanks phandroid

  304. I read to keep up on current and upcoming Android technology.  Most recently I’ve been reading for Galaxy Nexus, Fire, and ICS news.

  305. I am addicted to Android and need my smartphone and tablet news!

  306. I NEED to know what is going on in the world of Phandroid and Android as soon as news breaks.  I am addicted and need my fix!

  307. I enjoyed reading about the progress that Android is making, and I can’t stand dealing with the haters and iPhanboys on other sites.  I know Android isn’t perfect, but it is my platform of choice.

    Phandroid is great because it is a place for people with common interests to gather, and they are always on top of the stories before others.

  308. Android + news = what’s better than that?

  309. I read Phandroid because my whole household is now #TeamAndroid and if I don’t tell my husband what to do with his phone he would have no decent launcher, no case, no cool apps and I would have to kill him for breaking his brand new phone.

  310. I visit phandroid because I want the best information about the best products, so far I haven’t been let down. <3

  311. Well it’s either this or engadget so yeah lol

  312. So glad I have some downtime while at work or id miss todays contest, but WTH? Where’d my post go? ok Ill go again while i’ve got time.
    I keep checking and read everyday to keep up todate on everything Android related. What else? ;)

  313. I read you guys everyday because you are QUICK to post breaking news. Other sites should learn from your speed and professionalism.

  314. There comes a time in everyone’s life when you get busy reading, or just zone out and watch TV. Reading the news on Phandroid and getting help from day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year is swell. The website is not only easy to read, but also has a dedicated following with other that have fallen in love with the Android OS. Man, I could really go for some Ice Cream Sandwich OS…

  315. I just ducked out of family dinner to check phandroid, that should tell you all you need to know! :-)

  316. I read this website to keep up to date on rom development and info about my devices. This is one of the better structured websites and I can usually find an answer to most of my questions involving rooting.

  317. Kitten, I read phandroid everyday because sometimes, stuff happens, somebody’s gotta post about it, and who’re you gonna call?!

  318. You just have good news covering on the important and interesting Android Stories :)

  319. I read Phandroid to stay away from my kids!!!!

  320. all the great tech advice and honest reviews gets me to read Phandroid or visit

  322. Like everyone else, I subscribe to Phandroid’s Twitter feed to keep up to date on everything pertaining to Android

  323. Android news with a sense of humor….ok, it’s really to win stuff.

  324. My husband reads your posts, and news all the time on  The other week he was unable to figure out a setting on his Samsung Captivate so it was off to the for a quick and easy search for the answer!

  325. With the Android platform growing by leaps and bounds, I read Phandroid daily to keep up with what is going on in the Android world.  I check in on Android Forums daily to keep up with rooting information on my devices.  And I would dearly love to add a Kindle Fire to the collection I’ve got going!

  326. Android news with a sense of humor….ok, it’s really to win stuff.

  327. Phandroid keeps me up to date with whats important in my life. My one stop shop.

  328. I have followed on twitter phandroid for quiet some time. I have also followed Androidforums, but not as long. I follow you guys because of the interesting articles that relate to android and tech. I am extremely interested in tech because of the solutions and ease of life it can bring. Reading about android and all around tech has made me more aware of the tech world, and I think it’s wonderful to have websites such as phandroid and androidforums because of the interesting articles they bring. These giveaways are just a bonus and I thought I would try everyday to win just to see if I had any luck. Lets get some random luck!

  329. I read because I’m a phandroid myself! :D

  330. I post/read here cause I just like keeping up with what’s going on with Android.

  331. What gets me to read every day? The simple fact that Phandroid always has the Android news I want before anyone else. You guys rock!

  332. This forum cured me of my apple addiction.

  333. I religiously read phandroid everyday, often using the app or visiting the site several times a day, BEST SITE EVER

  334. I have to admit it was the “ph” spelling that got my attention a long while back, but I keep coming back because of the great device and app reviews.  Contests like this are the icing on the cake!

  335. I read Phandroid every day because I am addicted to keeping up with the latest news, whether it be new apps, info on updates for my phone or other phones, and general news that related to Android. I like the variety of what is covered as well, from apps to Apple’s latest lawsuits…

  336. Phandroid has been my android fix since before android was officially available on any phone…i guess you could say I have just always been a phan!

  337. I started reading Phandroid to learn more about the G1, and I’ve stuck around because of the app suggestions, and to get the news that TechCrunch or Gizmodo don’t give me.

  338. I like to read phandroid because I can’t get enough android news and you are great!


  340. I read Phandroid everyday to get the latest gossip on all things android!

  343. Simple: my addiction to all things Android. Phandroid is the oldest and still greatest site out there.

  344. I read Phandroid daily because I am a tech geek who is really into the whole Android craze and like to keep up with the latest news. Wayy more interesting than the Iphone and IOS! 

  345. Phandroid offers alot of android news, which is what we all love.  and indirectly form a nice little community as well.

  346. I read Phandroid so I can get my fix of ‘Droid news every day

  347. I love reading all the new gadgets and features that come out plus the contests ;)
    Go PhanDROID! Rawr, >:0

  348. Uh, I think it’s obvious, to feed my Android addiction!

  349. I’m in the process of moving on from the webOS camp, and I would check precentral and webosroundup along with a few others, at least once a day.  Now that I got my wife a Razr, and I’m waiting for the Galaxy Nexus, I’ve been checking out some Android specific sites.  I have found that phandroid is my favorite, and is the only one that I follow on twitter!  Your frequent posts and news stories are awesome.

  350. I come here for the huge variety of android related news! 

  351. I check Phandroid everyday because they are always updating their site with new information about all the new android devices. Also I’ve been trying to find out when this damn galaxy nexus is coming out!!!

  352. I checked multi times a day because I love being considered the cell phone expert of my friends and family all because I read regularly! Plus I love all the apps of the day.

  353. I read it daily to get the most current information on new Android products and Apps.

  354. I check because I am a Phandroid!

  355. I like to read Phandroid for many reasons but one of the reasons that brought me here was the Tips and Tricks. The section sure did help me out when I was an android n00b :)

  356. I follow phandroid to get the most out of my phone and to keep up with the ever evolving android platform.

  357. what get me to read daily is the news.  I know everyday cant have news but you never know when the big story might drop.  I cant wait for the morning i drink my coffee and type in and see “galaxy nexus launches on verizon XX date”.  thats why i log in everyday.

  358. I visit phandroid for the news and also for the community. They’re generally more friendly than some other boards and I like it!

  359. I read phandroid every day to find out what new and amazing android devices are coming to make apple cry… :)

  360. i read on phandroid because its one of the first and one of the best android focused sites on the net. its always very up to date, even for canadian news. and i really like the writrs on here. Chris always finds a way to deliver news with his own twist and humor

  361. Android OS news and reviews of new apps and phones

  362. Back when android started, I could scour news sites finding tidbits finding news, or I could just read phandroid.  A lot has changed since then, but Phandroid is still the easiest place to get all android related news.

  363. To stay up to date on the most recent android news!

  364. Waiting for news on when ICS will hit my phone.

  365. this site has pretty awesome android news.

  366. At 7:36pm with 348 comments and 20 minutes to go:

    I refresh dozens of times a day, because, I’m a fan of exponentially advancing technology, and this site does a great job staying on top of it.

  367. Start off reading for all the android goodness here before going anywhere else. The personal opinions during news are the best, instead of just giving the report about something, you sneak in a little bit of opinions. Refreshing.

  368. To be honest, I just started reading Phandroid when I heard about this contest, but now I find myself checking it at least every day because it is generally one of the most up-to-date/current android news sites.

  369. My reasons for reading Phandroid are simple, and perhaps not the most elegant.  I’m an IT Professional, and I love technology.  I work in a field where I have to stay ‘one up’ on the every day user, and that includes in phone / tablet tech as well as computing.  So, Phandroid helps keep me inundated with the latest ‘breaking’ news.  I’ve yet to be caught unawares when I’ve been (properly) keeping up with your site, even if I am one of the silent majority in as far as participation. 

  370. I like to read and to keep up to date on the latest and greatest devices.  Also to learn about my current devices especially if I am having a problem with one.  Right now  I want phandroid to tell me which tablet to buy!!!

  371. lastest news

  372. I read phandroid simply because y’all put the effort and time into your work that no body else does. I couldn’t tell you any other android site that post at 3am in the morning. And if I ever am looking for the newest gadget, recommended apps, or help with my phone I know where to always go. that’s where!

  373. My boyfriend enlisted me to visit daily so that I can do the dirty work to enter the contest for him!

  374. I read Phandroid to stay up to date on Android so I can make educated recommendations to my friends and co-workers when they ask me which cell phone or tablet they should buy. I also check Phandroid constantly for updates on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

  375. I don’t know… I’m just assessed or so my wife said…

  376. Waiting for galaxy nexus

  377. Because I’m a nerd……..just like everybody else checking this site everyday.

  378. I go to everyday to read up on what everyone is talking about. I like to try the latest roms, and I particularly like the community lounge, where you can talk about what ever you want, from politics to comfort food!

  379. Love the site for keeping updated on the latest Android news!  I check it constantly…keep it coming!  Just joined the forums and haven’t had a chance to peruse the posts…but will be this week. Thanks!

  380. I read Phandroid because they seem to have legit news haha! I have read news from some other sites but they always seem to be retarded rumors and I have never had that issue here! Once I got my DroidX 6 months ago I was searching for a good informer and I believe I had either Jrummy16 or Kejar31 retweet something which led me here. Ever since then I believe this to be my go to site and now app =P

  381. I would have to say that the articals are well written. :-P but most of all fun to read. I like the reviews of the apps and the updates to find out whenever i can snack on gingerbread or maybey a little ice cream sandwich. Now contests…awsome. Thanks phandroid

  382. Phandroid is everything android, and I’m all about android. I love the android products and when a man loves android the first place he goes to is Phandroid for any info.

  383. Phadroid’s RSS feed gives full articles, so I read Phandroid every day on my RSS reader.

  384. I come to Phandroid for the latest news on anything android. I’ve been hook on android since I first heard about the G1. Now I’m hoping I win so I can have the latest Nexus phone. :)

  385. I use them too find out what’s new in the Android world

  386. I have been a phan of android for a long time. Partly because I was exceptionally anti-Apple and partly because I like the ability to do whatever I want with my phone. You guys were the first site I hit up, I visit phandroid because I love tech, I love rational arguments with people who are not sheep and I love being part of a community

  387. you guys fill a void left by the copy cats thats why i read Phandroid

  388. is definitely one of my must reads everyday, have to keep up with the latest news, tips and reviews.

  389. Love this site, love the forum.  All the other Android sites Ive checked out seem to get news later then this site.  Plus Im an android fanboy, so it totally fits.

  390. I read Phandroid and Android Forums everyday because it’s one of best conglomerations of android knowledge. 

  391. is the Tim Tebow of android sites.  It always delivers when you need it the most, with the latest from the android community.  

  392. I absolutely love phandroid!! I can see what phones and tablets I can look into buying! It also helps me look up info on all my android devices, I love it!

  393. Because you guys always cover the stuff that I want to hear about, and you’re usually the first ones to post it.  You’re the only Android blog that I’ve given its own pinned tab in Chrome!

  394. To be honest, it is the enthusiasm. And the writers are able to transfer that to me as I read their articles. Even if its a phone that I may not have been that excited about they were able to engage me and show me the good things. While at the same time I appreciate the time and research they put in to providing the information that we read!

  395. I’m feeling rather random myself.  I read Pandroid to keep up on the latest news on all things Android.  I follow a couple of forum topics cause there are a lot of very knowledgeble folks following Phandroid.  Phandoid has always helped me make informed choices and keeps me intellectually stimulated.

    Thank you Phandroid

  396. My reason for visiting this site is the Phandroid Logo/Mascot: I have that same fanatic/obsessed/crazy expression on my face when I read up on the latest android phones/tablets/updates in technology on this website and forum

    Keep rocking Phandroid!

  397. Anything about T-Mobile, Apple Lawsuits :D, new phones and everything Android gets me to read Phandroid. You guys rock!

  398. I came here at first so I wouldn’t look like a complete moron when I got my first Android device by not knowing how to use it.  Now, it’s like there is a vacuum in my news area of my brain that has to be filled with phandroid news and gossip. Or, as Carl would say, “there was a rumbly in my tummy that only Phandroid could satisfy.”… or not.

  399. The latest in android of course

  400. I love phandroid, they keep me up to date all things Android, creative writers and always a good read

  401. I fell in love with the whole concept of Android and got the G1 when it first came out. Phandroid was the first blog that came out that truly committed itself to all things Android, without being terribly fanboyish about it. OK, maybe a LITTLE, but that’s not always a bad thing. Ever since then, they’ve provided great coverage, proving they can be objective when the Android world isn’t necessarily at the top of their game. And the giveaways help too. :D

  402. I read Phandroid because its a source for Android only news and because its the only site that openly mocks Apple and their non-sense. 

    I visit the AndroidForums to discuss games for Android. Its a great place to learn about new games as developers are frequently posting threads about their new games and users who want unknown or new games to get out. Its also useful for when you get stuck with a game, whether its in game (don’t know what to do) or outside the game (can’t get it to run), someone knows something that can help.

  403. I read Phandroid daily/hourly so I have something to argue with my co-workers about. Duh.

  404. I have been coming to phandroid ever since I had my og droid. Found you guys by happy accident and have learned a lot from the forums here and your always up to date news of android. I guess you can say its the quality content and devoted community that keeps me coming back. Happy holidays!!

  405. I read phandroid everyday because I’m a gadget geek waiting for the Galaxy Nexus to come out.

  406. I always check cause I like all the reviews that make me want a new phone. I’m still using the OG Droid.

  407. I read because phandroid is very informative :)

  408. Phandroid is the number one place to get your android news fix. From the minute I wake up I am constantly checking the site to stay on top of the most important android news.

  409. You guys post the latest info and news. No other blog can compete. You guys also give away the best swag.

  410. I read Phandroid everyday because other then Linux, Android is my OS of choice. The guys at Phandroid always have the latest scoop on whats coming out and I can always get to multiple reviews of the devices I’m looking to buy. Not only that they keep up to date on all the legal battles facing Android and google’s partners. Plus I think everyone here at phandroid shares my hatred for apple :-) Just in case anyone is interested in reading about the legal battle going on with android I would recommend groklaw!

  411. I have been coming to phandroid ever since I had my og droid. Found you guys by happy accident and have learned a lot from the forums here and your always up to date news of android.

I want to know every specifications detail, and of course, when it will be arriving to US shores. I am also sick of the Apple bias that many sites, including Cnet, which I frequent, seem to have. This site,, is updated more frequently and more accurately than all other sites out there, and I also follow its twitter. <3 for phandroid!!!

  430. The reviews, tips and forum are among the most helpful around!

  431. Phandroid is the fastest way to be informed about android. Btw. there is no such site in Germany.

  437. I read phandroid and look through because I found out I love technology. I had never rooted or anything before I had the hero. Ever since I have have become hooked. I read it all.

Thanks for all you do and happy holidays everyone!

I love that you’re running this contest, it’s always nice to see this sort of thing still going on. 
    Keep doing what you’re doing,
    Scott Attula
    P.S. I’ll be leaving for college after finishing high school, and I could really use some of this stuff for “learning” ;)

  440. I read phandroid because I like to be in the know about mobile technology especially that which is based on the android platform. I enjoy learning random facts and seeing how android progresses over time. Phandroid tells me when new things will come out and the future of mobile technology in general.

  441. Phandroid keeps me updated every day and. It is entertainment

  442. I keep coming back here to learn. This was the first site I used to find things out about my thunderbolt. Been a fan ever since. Every day I’m phandroiding!

  443. I read every day because no other site posts just android news, all day, every day. Other android sites seem to venture out into various political discussions, etc, which takes away from the core technical focus of . 

  444. Let’s face it, i’m in love with the little green dude. Luckily the wonderful team at phandroid has people like me covered when it comes to all the latest android news.

  458. I love being on the cutting edge of Android news. My friends come to me for phone advice.

  459. The vast community of unbelievably helpful people. They are always incredibly knowledgeable and precise in their answers. After soft-bricking my droid x (twice) and having a plethora of immediate responses on how to fix it, I decided I would help contribute. I am now an avid responder to other people’s problems and have learned much of what I now know about Android from this wonderful place. Thank you so much everyone, you’re awesome!

  460. It’s plain and simple: Android fan, lover, hater, tech nerd, if you want the latest and greatest in news, Phandroid’s the place to be. Awesome community, awesome site, and awesome content.

  463. I read Phandroid daily because they give me great information on anything Android related.  It helped me make the best decisions when purchasing new phones for my wife and I.  I read tons of reviews to narrow down the best phones.  I also read the reviews for the tablets and apps.

  464. It’s all about ANDROID!

  465. I read phandroid as the main source of Android-specific news (generally right after I read engadget).  The thing that keeps me coming back is the community and personality of the writers (and I’ve met some of you in person when you came to Baltimore!)

  466. Been hooked on Android since the OG Droid, Phandroid is the place to get the latest and greatest news.

  467. I love Phandroid because I’m a college senior about to graduate with a degree in Journalism.  I use you guys as a reference point for what makes great reporting: Your timeliness, willingness to work and post articles 24/7 with breaking news, and informal yet professional writing staff.  Phandroid is everything I want when I think about the career path I’ve chosen.  Also… I love android (Duh!)

  474. Recently I’ve been checking every day for for the more in depth coverage of apples lawsuits

  482. I check everyday for news on the latest and greatest of course. You guys do an awesome job of keeping on top of everything!


  484. I check this forum on a daily basis because there is far less speculation and actual good info. The moderators and admin staff don’t show a blatant bias as do on some other sites. The community is tight nit and even though some threads get heated the infractions and banned threats, or threats of closing aren’t there. Everyone says their piece and we go on. 

    Mostly though, I check this place out every day because I thought it had the coolest name out of all of the other forums out there. Droid life? meh Droid Forums? Blah
    Phandroid? It fits the community and it’s catchy. Thats why i check it out

  485. It’s become a habit of mine ever since the launch of the original HTC Evo 4G to stay in the know with anything Android.

  486. I stay up to date on the AndroidForums to learn about new ROM’s, etc.


  488. I have been reading Phandroid for a couple years now, ever since I got my OG Droid on launch day and Phandroid was a default feed in the news feed app I downloaded.  I have continued to read Phandroid every day to stay up to date on Android information because I love reading about new devices and apps, my family depends on me to steer them in the right direction for phone.  I also love the way that Phandroid articles are written, often with a nice touch of comedy in them. 

  489. This is simple Phandroid in my opinion is on the ball with the most Android info and usually has it first It is set up on my bookmarks first and the info goes down from there

  490. OBSESSION. That’s what makes me read everything on this site every HOUR. 

  491. it’s a very honest and detailed set of posts from a group of people that seem very casual but dedicated to what they do.

  492. I’ve got Phandroid’s RSS in my Google Reader setup. It’s one of the few feeds that I keep up with every day. I read it to keep up to date with the latest devices, the latest features of new Android releases, and the highlights of the independent ROM scene. Often I click through to read what the commenters have to say and occasionally I comment myself.

  493. I read Phandroid multiple times per day because they provide breaking news written by great journalists! 

  494. Best site for Android news :]

  495. This was the first site I came to when I bought my first android phone (OG Droid) , and I’ve been coming back everyday since to keep up with the latest news and info.

  496. I love the new amd constant updated artiles that Phandroid writes up. The contest are great and the context in which the articles are written are great.

  497. Although i’m fairly new to the website, it’s the best for upcoming phone news and reviews. Before i buy any new tech, i check here first for news and reviews. Great site and great community

  498. The great people on the forums.

  499. I always want to find out about new apps and new phones for android.

I get a great mix of reviews, news and, yes, contests! (ps – I love the gift guide, as well – added a few things to my amazon wish list – thanks!)

  505. I read Phandroid daily, because it is quite simply put the most informative knowledgeable source of all things android

  506. greatest source of android news and reviews, period

  507. I love phandroid because it covers the most relevant and interesting android news that I’m interested in.  Far better than any other site

  508. Well, cause the news is simply, the best in the Biz ;)  What else must be said?

  509. I check everyday because I want to sound like I know what I am talking about when discussing android. Another reason is because I know alot of people that are iphone fanboys and I always find info on here that I can use during our android v. Iphone debates.

  510. Hope I made it. I read phandroid mostly to keep u[p on the latest phones.

  511. What gets me to read every day is I love keeping up on the latest Android news and these sites are 2 of the best!

  512. I just loving hearing about the latest android commentary with the passion that is delivered

  514. Android’s the best super-phone OS out there and Phandroid’s the best Android news source on the ‘net.

  515. I read it daily because I don’t yet have a family to spend my disposable income on, and it gives me ideas as to where to spend it

  516. I think it varies, but lately a big thing is that I’ve been desperate for news on the Galaxy Nexus.

  517. I check Phandroid multiple times a day to stay up do date on what is going on in the world of Android and the is where to find out what people are saying about the devices I care about. 

  518. Because you made good use of tools to make your site mobile and Google friendly. I also don’t notice as many typos as other sites and that makes me, the grammar police, happy.

  519. I love anything Android, I like to see what is always conning up.

  520. The site is a trusted resource.  I’ve only been around since the Evo and you helped in my rooting it and others.  That’s huge.  It is nice to have a trusted site to get tips and information when there is so much out there.
