Now, it’s up to you to determine the three top winners of the pocketnow Turns Ten Contest, who will get to choose any phone from to be sent to their door. These ten finalists were picked by the pocketnow staff. Extra points when to those that clearly spent the most time and effort to prove to us that they were our biggest fan.
