LG G3 Giveaway [Contest]

[UPDATE:  Winner is picked and here's the video announcing!  The winner will have 24 hours to send me their contact info or we'll re-draw... I've re-drawn and notified of the second name.]

Congrats +Jace Hernandez 

So we mentioned this during the Hangout #89 - that if you misssed out on the End of Summer Giveaway, that there'd be an opportunity for you still.

And that opportunity is to win the very cool LG G3.  I loved that phone.  I always said that 5.5" would be too big.  The OnePlus, the Note 3... they were all too big for that size; but the G3 was perfect.  Only slightly bigger than the G2.

Here's your chance to be able to own one.

Now, to whoever wins I'm not going to guarantee it for your carrier; so you may have to unlock it for yours.  [update]The phone will be a ROGERS phone, so if you want it to work on another carrier you'll have to unlock it yourself.

Okay, that out of the way, how do you win it?  Well, LG would like to show you probably the most understated feature of its last 2 devices... the Knock Code.

Sure, tap to wake up has been around for a while in various forms, and LG steps the game up to include some security.  Let's have a quick look at what really is Knock Code

But that's a basic understanding.  Why is it important aside from being cool?  I'll show you a couple examples with LG's ads, which I found hilarious:










I dunno, I found those funny.

For me, I like to pick a knock code that means something.  I thought of the squares as 1234 and then did 'pi' (using squares 314), and then I did a generic RRLRR as a bit of a drumbeat.

KnockCode is awesome that way, in that you don't have to put your fingers in a specific place, it just measures the relative positioning of where you tap to be the 'squares'. So you can come up with a bit of a rhythm of up to 8 beats for your code.

Everyone has a rhythm they like (no dirty jokes)... Even 'the master' uses a rhythm (listen to him practice it).

So, all that... what're the steps to enter?
  1. You should 'follow', 'like' or 'circle' our Android Coliseum page (go look on the right hand side of the page to do so)
  2. You'll have to tweet / post about this contest with the URL for this page and the hashtag #LGG3 (you can use the buttons below). 
    1. Get the url of that post you made and include it in the form below (missing out on that part means I can't confirm you did it).
  3. Fill in the form below with your other information as necessary.
If you get confused.  Just send me a message click this:  http://hangouts.google.com/start and add +Ryan Moore. My little 'disclaimer':
  1. Giveaway runs until September 19th, 2014 and we'll draw at 10PM EDT.
  2. Limited to one entry per person per social media (i.e. share to Facebook, then Twitter, then Google+ would net that person 3 entries)
  3. Anybody who writes for Android Coliseum and their immediate families (i.e. if they live in the house with you) are ineligible... just looks bad.
  4. When you're selected, you'll be given 24 hours to respond, or we'll have to redraw.
  5. If we don't get many applicants (minimum 50 different folk) we'll hold on to the prizes for a later date and another giveaway down the road.
  6. All entries will be sorted according to their time of entry, and then a random number generator will pick the position of the winner for prize #1.  If that person has any other entries, they will then be removed as we then draw for prize #2, and so on.
  7. Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are in no way associated with this giveaway.  By providing your information in this form, you are providing your information to me and me alone.  I do not share or sell information and will use any information only for the purpose of contacting the winner.
  8. Unfortunately as we're paying for the shipping out of our own pockets, so we're limiting the allowable shipping addresses to be in Canada.
