Verizon Wireless Giveaway - Win a Free Droid RAZR HD + Gift Card

As you all know, I'm a big fan of Verizon Wireless. They sponsor Will Power, my favorite racecar driver, I love their service, and earlier this year they offered me an opportunity to be a part of a group of bloggers who get to try out some of their devices for free in exchange for bringing our readers our honest opinions about them.



I've been playing with the Droid RAZR M for the past couple of months--I'll have a post coming before too long about that--and now they've given me a prize pack to give away to a lucky reader of this site: The winner will receive a new Droid RAZR HD as well as a $50 Verizon gift card

The RAZR HD launched as the most compact 4.7" smartphone on the market and contains such features as:


  • An 8-megapixel camera and HD display that makes movies, photos, magazines and websites appear with vibrant clarity.
  • Circles Widget makes it easy to view battery life, text notifications, missed calls or weather updates, right on the home screen.
  • Near-field communications-enabled, so customers can use Android Beam to share contacts, documents and maps directly to compatible phones.
  • A battery that allows for up to 32 hours of normal use and double the internal storage (of older RAZR phones) to 32 GB.
  • Runs over 4G LTE, combined with Chrome for Android, meaning customers can enjoy blazing fast speeds that make downloading documents or surfing the Web a breeze.
  • Device is Global Ready, so calling home or sending emails is possible from more than 205 countries around the world.
It's also built with Gorilla Glass and KEVLAR fiber, so it's a durable little bugger! 

In order to enter the sweepstakes, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before December 14th (I'll cut off entries at 8 am CST on 12/14) that answers the question: "What Droid RAZR feature are you the most excited about?" 

To enter, you must be a resident of the United States. Also, given that I allow anonymous comments on this blog, you must either log-in to leave your comment in a way that includes your email address or otherwise leave me some way to get in touch if you win. Also, please only enter one giveaway and only leave one comment. Duplicate entries will be disqualified. 

Each comment will be numbered (comment 1 = #1) and at the end I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. I won't re-number the comments in the case of ineligible entries or comments that aren't actually entries into the contest, I'll just draw again should their comment number be pulled. And my decision is final.

I've really enjoyed using the RAZR that Verizon Wireless gave me earlier this year. It's fast to load everything, the service is awesome (even in the semi-rural area that I live in), the camera is solid, it's got a lot of memory, and the screen is really nice. It just got upgraded to Jellybean and that's an awesome operating system. 

The phone that I'm giving away a step up from the RAZR I've been using, so I'm sure whoever wins it will really enjoy it! 

Good luck to all, and thanks to Verizon!

James, there's a question mentioned in the post that you need to answer in order to have a valid entry. I'll count your post as just a general non-entry comment.

If you want to enter for the phone, feel free to leave another comment answering the question in the post. That won't break the "No multiple entries" rule.

(And this is what I meant when I said I wouldn't re-number comments for invalid entries or general comments...so if I draw #2, for instance, I'll just pick another number.)

I'm excited to be able to use navigation on my phone!

That 4G LTE sounds great; I have a Motorola phone right now (thinking about upgrading to the Galaxy S3), and it lags and is VERY slow. Excited about a smartphone that is actually, well, smart.

Love Motorola products. I have to think that a battery that allows for up to 32 hours of use and 32 GB of internal storage seems like a great pair of features!

Given that I did mobile development last summer with the technology, I might be a bit bias, but I like seeing NFC start to become common. It has some nice future potential and the more it is out there, the faster that will be realized.

It has to be the battery life. I use my phone to create gps trac files of bike rides and hikes that I take and having the GPS and mobile data on together takes a huge tool on the battery. Better battery life = better smartphone.

Global ready. I travel a lot for work and hate having to waste time at overseas airports buying local SIM cards!

Battery life sounds killer! 32 hours is > than the 3.2 hours I currently have...

Miah Raye said...

I'm definitely excited for the battery life as well

Donna said...

The 32 hour battery life is what I'm most excited for. When I'm at work, my battery just gets drained and I think its because our wireless service isn't that great.

Unknown said...

battery life it is. thanks for your work!

Jamie Leigh Martin said...

Crazy long battery life!

Andrew Seid said...

Most definitely the battery life. For someone who is constantly in the airport, having that long battery life removes that pain.

battery life!!!!!

I like the fact that the new Droid RAZR HD because it has a battery that allows for up to 32 hours of normal use! My older generation Verzion cell phone battery could not hold a charge very long (could be because the battery was worn out?!). 32 hours of normal use sounds like a dream!

The extra internal memory is a must have for smartphone users :)

I would love to have up to 32 hours of battery life. I currently have to charge my phone mid day

Kevlar shell!

Larry Franks said...

The camera looks great, but the display has to be the best feature. Put that together with with the battery life and the 4g and this has to be the best phone ever!

So many features, Tim! Jelly Bean operating system, 4.7" HD viewing area; KEVLAR & Gorilla Glass. Amazon Kindle store e-book app. Maybe the best thing: water-repellent nanocoating that protects inside and out from an occasional splash!

SO excited about the battery life, great camera and upgrading my phone that has been slow as molasses for the past 8-9 months.

Laurie said...

The 32 hour battery life would be amazing. I am on my phone ALL DAY and the battery dies unless I plug it into my computer.

If it's true the battery is long lasting, that would trump any other feature for me. Good luck everyone!

As I have dropped my phone on multiple occasions, I am excited about the Gorilla Glass and KEVLAR Fiber. That way, if I drop my phone it will not leave many cracks. Go Blue!
