Competition: Win a Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 from Ausdroid and Vodafone

You may remember we had a friendly wager going with Kieran from Vodafone regarding the Jelly Bean update for the Nexus S. Well, after a false start, Vodafone won that fair and square and it’s time to pay up so there it is. Vodafone has again this week shown they speak Android supplying the Android 4.1.2 update to the Nexus S Over The Air to handsets, don’t worry if you haven’t got it yet it should reach you shortly.

Part of the wager was that if Vodafone couldn’t push the update out to Nexus S handsets within 2 weeks of the factory image hitting the Google Developers page they would supply a Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 for us to review and a giveaway. Well, the review is up now it’s time to give it away. Now, given that it’s a pretty cheap option to replace your main phone if something did happen to it, we’ve decided to give it away like this :

Send an email to [email protected] and tell us in 25 words or less what is the most spectacular way that you have destroyed your primary phone.

The competition will run for a week, entries close midnight on the 26th of October and is only open to people living in Australia. So shoot us an email and we’ll choose the best of the bunch.

Our standard competition terms and conditions apply.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.

        You look like that you’ve just came back from the Antarctica. Did you test one of them Android tough phones over that way?

        • I think this could be the next competition.
          Most impressive beard photo.


  • If this is the face of an Android user were all fucked, no mirrors in this house

      Says the commenter with a mask on. Nice personal attack there mate. Love the beard Dan, keep up the good work.

    • Geoff Fieldew

      Not cool craigd. Disagreeing about products, opinions, etc is fine but personal insults are not on.

    • Trust me its not a personal attack, I happen to think this web site offers posts in line with the average Android website, I check in here semi regularly so that was not my intention. If you think it came across as an insult then I apologise.

  • Hey!
    Who won?

  • Agreed! What was the best story Dan?
