Announcing the Winner of 'The World's First Samsung Galaxy S4 Contest!'

Judging by the number of entries in 'The World's First Samsung Galaxy 4 Contest', most of you can't wait to get your hands on the device, and I can't blame you. I'd like the S4 in my arsenal as well, after checking out the Samsung Galaxy S4 Hands-on, and Galaxy S4 Forums. It's good stuff, but I digress. 

It's time to announce the winner of our contest. Our winner is:



While we're at it, we'll toss in a few cases to help you protect your new S4. :) We will be in touch via email and PM to get things sorted, and will ship the device as soon as we get our hands on it!

THANK YOU to all who entered (over 16,000 entries, AMAZING!). Be sure to keep it locked here at Android Central for the latest news and developments on the Samsung Galaxy S4!

Excellent contest AC. While I didn't win, at least the odds were better than Powerball. 1 in 16,000 isn't nearly as bad. Thanks... Looking forward to the next one.

Hello, Samsung!!! I always bought n upgraded to samsungs, but sadly got talked into iPhone 4S, I dnt like it!!!! I can't do near the amount of stuff and apps that are free and especially I miss Bluetooth, it has the button but will only pick up your vehicle, it will not let you Bluetooth anyone on any phone because they (Apple) wants you to buy their songs or apps that I once had with my Samsung phone, they dnt tell u that when they convince u into an iPhone, that sucks!!!!! I'm not ready for upgrade yet, can't afford full price either, but by goodness I will go back to Samsung n Android, they r the best wanting the Samsung 4, or 3, or note!!!!!!!

Bellelady619 says:

Darn it, I just noticed contest today, n already a winner, I was hoping to enter n go back to the best system android n Samsung phones beats iPhone by the millions. Darn it, I really wanted to try n win, so to get off of this crappy iPhone 4S, I got talked into....,,
