Android Central Valentine's Day Contest

Awwwwwwwww. Isn't that sweet? It's Lloyd with a green heart. And a Nexus 4. And a Nexus 7. Yeah, we're falling for the Valentine's Day fanfare this year, and you're going to reap the benefits in our inaugural Android Central Valentine's Day Contest.

Wanna win a Nexus 7 and a Nexus 4? And find out how I tricked this woman into taking a picture with me? Read on for all the deets.

Seeing as how I'm feeling a bit mushy this February, here's how we're going to work things:

  • To enter this contest, you will need to post in this forum thread. <--------- Use that link right there. Don't use the comments in this post. (Those of you who do shall be mocked mercilessly.)
  • This is our first couples contest. It's going to require a picture of you and your significant other. Guy, gal, four-legged friend. Doesn't matter to us. We wanna see you with someone you care about. Or at least someone you bribed for a picture. (Or if all else fails, show us a pic of you and your beloved phone.)
  • Those who post pictures (again, do it in that forum thread) of you and your significant other get entered to win one of two grand prizes: A 32GB Wifi Nexus 7 and a 16GB Nexus 4. Plus we'll throw in a couple of sweet LloydGear T-shirts for each set of winners.
  • Five runners-up will receive Lloyd T-shirts.

Got it? Snap a pic your pal -- the more mushy the better; this is a Valentine's contest, after all -- and post it in the forum thread. Done. And since this was my bright idea, I'll go first. Say hi to my lovely wife, @snickinson.

A couple fine points: This one's open to anyone, anywhere. One entry per person -- so make it good. Also keep it safe for work. (If it's not safe for work, e-mail it to Jerry for safe keeping.)

We'll end this contest at 8 a.m. Eastern time Friday, Feb. 15. Good luck!

I'm going to comment here for the express purpose of being mocked mercilessly. Negative attention is still attention... <sarcasm>Do I win?</sarcasm>

Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online(Click on menu Home)

jean15paul says:

Is it a requirement that the pic be taken with an Android device?

FYI, I just tweeted @ your wife. :)

onixblack says:

As a single man with no significant other or animal to call my own, this contest only saddens me more

lol. Surely you have something that'll make us smile. :p

arundc says:

Thanks for creating this contest. I was having a rather dull day and looking at all the beautiful photos of the couples, kids, animals, etc. made my day! High 5s to all who posted...

Same here! :)

DavidJ726 says:

You could always "rent" a friend... :-)

treb1797 says:

W/ this great thing we call the internet...your girlfriend is only a few clicks away.

cav22 says:

I am sure Manti Teo would share his girlfriend with you...

Lmao! Greatest comment ever!

arundc says:

LOL 2nd that

treb1797 says:

So what does a guy get a catfish for, for Valentine's Day ?

gregmcph says:

There has to be a prize for a photo with an actual catfish.

mtmerrick says:

I know how you feel onix... :(

VDub2174 says:

Would it be awkward if I took a pic wiht my PS3? I love it so it counts right? :)

TenshiNo says:

If that's who you will be spending your evening with on Valentines, then it sounds like it should count :)

Make some eyes and a mouth on paper and tape it to the box for the pic. That should improve your chances, I think ;)

eahinrichsen says:

As long as you're not doing anything NSFW with it... :)

maconu says:

Is that a choke hold or a hug???
I hope you've done all your honey-do's Phil!!!

KingGinger55 says:

"A couple fine points: This one's open to anyone, anywhere. One entry per person -- so make it good."

One per person or one per couple?
What if I have a super hot nerdy girlfriend who has an account here?

Per person. We're all for more pictures of hot couples. :)

How soon after this photo was taken did you tapout Phil?

Great contest idea as well!

Well I'm out unless of course I can take a picture of me holding my GNex with the screen showing my blog. I started my blog Valentine's Day last year and its the only thing I pay that much attention too. Or if you want to send me a Nexus 4, I'll take a picture of me with my new device.

citycrazed25 says:

Crap!!!....I just pissed off my fiance before I read Daughters count?

Tell her you need a pic to memorialize what a jerk you were so you can remember never to do it again. You're a new man!

IgorPunck says:

few things in life excite me, my wife and androidcentral contests!!! WOOOHOO!!

IgorPunck says:

Re: (If it's not safe for work, e-mail it to Jerry for safe keeping.) Whats' Jerry's preference? :) Willing to do anything to get my hands on Nexus4!!!

The answer you seek can be found in this #NSFW post from last year. :)

You have the funniest video responses jerry.

treb1797 says:

Somebody report this guy would ya ;)

wpavlik2 says:

With 2 weeks before this contest ends, who wants to bet on how many pages this contest thread gets?
I have posted mine and it's super cute. :)

beck_is_back says:

Hey guys, is this competition open to everyone or just US??

Is this only for US residents ? Or open to the world ?

MbTurner1977 says:

Wow Phil I hope that's not your wife. I feel sorry for her being stuck with your ugly mug. haha! Thanks for the contest. I'm hoping to win the N7.

I mean this in a very non-creepy kind of way, but you have a very pretty wife.
You must have a *really* good personality Phil, lol.
J/k :-P

slayerpsp says:

I guess me and the dog should work the wife is like a vampire and refuses to be in pictures

CeluGeek says:

Reads geeky tech blogs... Still gets reminded he's Forever Alone. :(
Good luck to the couples who enter the contest though.

Sploinkin says:

Print out a forever alone and take a pic with it!

alainlafond says:

Made me feeling very lucky being with the BOSS.
Doesn't mather if I don't win, as usual, spended a nice while...
Thanks, and happy Valentine all...

BigDinCA says:

Looks like someone is out of his league... but I suppose that maybe her glasses were off & she didn't know what she was saying "yes" to. Good for you, Phil!

plunder says:

Ahhhhhhhhhhh Phil.

KPCallahan says:

I feel like my gf would say ill take one with my dog!

shaunypat says:

I would love to pry my wife away from her Apple fandom. Get me that N4, Phil!!! And my best pictures are all of my wife and my son, who are both better looking than me, so I'm amending...:-)

Dan29466 says:

Hey, look! Another geek who married up. God bless girls that dig geeks.

Synycalwon says:

OMG! My eyes! My eyes! Looking at the submitted pix (not that I'm any better! ;P). Good luck to those who have submitted a pic. I don't envy the judges. :eek: LOL (My lady and I refuse to post pix online). :)

jean15paul says:


Does their pic have to be taken with an Android device?

S-Doo-1965 says:


Mapex says:

It will be impossible to take of a picture of both myself and my significant other.

After all, to take the picture I need to hold the phone with my left hand.

jean15paul says:

Everyone knows "Android is for porn," so I'm sure you're used to holding the phone in your left hand.

lbabus says:

How do I upload the picture? I only get the prompt about adding the picture from a URL and it is on my computer? HELP! I really want to win.
