Pocketnow Smartphone Giveaway 2014: phones, OnePlus invites, and more


The close of June marks an end to the latest season of smartphone shindigs: WWDC and Google I/O are behind us, and we’ve still got a couple months to go until IFA. What’s a smartphone fan to do in the interim? Pocketnow’s got plenty of news, reviews, and features coming out over the next few weeks to keep even the most fickle smartphone user interested, but this year we thought we’d spice things up even more with a special month-long event.

A couple weeks back we brought you our latest smartphone giveaway, as Huawei helped us award a lucky Pocketnow reader a new Ascend Mate2 4G LTE. That contest is now closed, but it was only the tip of the iceberg.

With July now upon us, we’re announcing a full month of smartphone giveaways, one after the other. Missed your chance last time? Worry not, because there are plenty of new opportunities coming right up!


ascend-mate-smallThings get into full swing next week, and on Monday, July 7 we get this jam started by giving away a custom Sony Xperia Z2 from dbrand and Pocketnow. See that bad boy up above? You won’t find a Z2 with this look in any store. Show the world that you get your smartphone and tablet news from the hottest site around while enjoying Sony’s latest flagship!

We’re following that up on July 14 and July 21, with not one, but two weeks of chances to win invitations to buy the new OnePlus One. These things have been harder to get your hands on than a greased-up pig with trust issues, but we’ve got a couple waiting for the right Pocketnow readers.

The month of giveaways concludes with a flash back to last month’s contest, as Huawei’s hooked us up with one more Ascend Mate2 4G LTE to hand out. This one gets started on July 28.


Be sure and check back every week as the announcements of these individual contests arrive; the details for how you’ll need to enter each, as well as who’s eligible, will vary based on the specific prize, and we’ll spell everything out as the time comes around for each one.

Following the Monday start to each contest, you’ll have a few days to get your entry in before we close submissions and announce the winner live on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast that Thursday.

With so many chances to participate, and all this gear waiting to be claimed, you’re going to want to keep Pocketnow bookmarked (not to mention following us on all our social presences) to make sure you don’t miss any of these opportunities.

Check in with us on Monday for details on how to win that Xperia Z2 with the coolest skin you’ll ever find, and as always, thanks for reading; Pocketnow wouldn’t be the site it is without fans like you, and this is just our little way of giving back.
