  • districtjack

    Looks like an entry level phone for someone who is finally going to trade up from their flip phone. I guess I am now officially an android super phone freak. I have the lg p930 (nitro in the u.s.), and the Sony xperia J would be such a step down for me. If I won this phone I would keep it for an emergency swap, or give it to someone who still has a “cellphone”. I’m old, but even I have jumped on the android wagon. Windows is just a memory now. You kids don’t know how easy you have it now a days. I started out with a Motorola analog bag phone, now look at me go with my p930 AND my Nexus 7.

    BTW android authority, thanks for pointing me in the right direction in choosing tablet size. 7 inch is in my hand almost constantly. I can’t imagine how tiring a full size tablet would be. I love your reviews they help old people make the right choices.

  • For everyone who were complaining about not receiving a confirmation email. We found the bug, if you signed up from the mobile site it wasn’t communicating with MailChimp our newsletter service. We have now fixed this bug, so please submit your email again and it should work. Sorry for the trouble & good luck everyone, we have around 1250 entries so far, so great odds of winning!
