Smartphone giveaway: another chance to win an LG G3

A couple weeks back, Pocketnow readers had the chance to win an LG G3 – actually, a pair of chances, and we gave away a G3 both to readers who were able to solve a riddle with hints sprinkled throughout the week’s posts, and listeners who helped spread the word about the Pocketnow Weekly podcast by leaving an iTunes review. Those two G3s are on their way to those lucky winners right now, but we’re not done yet: we’ve got another LG G3 that’s burning a hole in our pocket and we’d love to send it your way.

At stake is another 32GB LG G3 for AT&T. Sure, it’s last year’s LG flagship, and lacks some of the bragging rights of the new G4 (hitting US carriers soon), but with that big quad HD screen, 3GB of RAM, Snapdragon 801 SoC, and room for microSD expansion, there’s plenty of life left in this 5.5-incher.

Interested in making this phone your own? Well, if you pay attention to Pocketnow posts for the rest of the week, this G3 could soon be yours. Just like the contest we ran the other week, the trick to winning this G3 will be collecting the fragments of a trivia question and submitting the correct answer.

Starting today, you’ll find one part of the question hidden in a Pocketnow post each day this week. We’ll even get you started by providing the first one right here:


Stop back Tuesday through Friday to find the other four, hidden at the bottom of news, editorial, or review posts in the coming days. By Friday, you should be able to find all five and assemble them into the full question. Figure out the correct answer and submit it to [email protected] for your chance to win.

We’ll accept entries through noon Eastern on Monday, June 1, before drawing our winner from among the correct entries. And just like before, this is an AT&T edition of the G3, so while you should be able to have the handset unlocked and use it on another compatible network, we can’t guarantee anything – that’s going to be on you. Still interested? Check back tomorrow for clue number two, and good luck!

Update: Congratulations to our winner, Marissa from Illinois. The answer to the hidden question was Knock Code/Knock On.
