This could be yours
A lot of cool stuff streams through our Portland and NYC offices here at Digital Trends, but we seldom get to to share. Most of the lovely computers, phones, smartwatches, cameras, cars, headphones, speakers, tablets, and TVs we get to play with have to go straight back to the manufacturers. Today is different! We’re giving you a chance to win one of 10 brand-new LG G3 phones.

Updated on 7-24-2014 by Jeffrey Van Camp: Big thanks to everyone who entered. All winners were contacted.

If you haven’t already studied our riveting LG G3 review, it may be our favorite new Android phone. Unlike the competing iPhone 5S, Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, and HTC One M8, the G3 packs a 1440p screen (higher than Full HD), an ultra-fast laser-focusing camera, and LG’s clever Knock Code, which lets you unlock your phone by tapping on the screen in a certain way. This is a $580 phone that usually costs $200 if you sign a two-year contract, but 10 lucky winners will get a shiny new one in the mail, courtesy of DT.

LG G3 contest details:

  • Started: July 14
  • Ended: July 18 at 11:59 p.m. PT
  • Winners announced: Monday July 21 at 6am ET
