Comment to Win: Samsung Stratosphere [CONTEST]


How would you like to win yourself a brand new Samsung Stratosphere from Verizon? Thanks to the generous folks at RadioShack, we’ve got one that we’re dying to give away.  Starting today, November 22nd, and running through November 27th (11:59PM PST), we’ll be offering up a ridiculously easy way to walk away with the 4G handset.

As a reminder, the Samsung Stratosphere runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and features a 4.0-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera, front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE connectivity.

Don’t forget that RadioShack is also offering more than two dozen smartphones up for free this week.  All you have to do is sign a new two-year service agreement with Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint!

How do I enter?

Simple. Leave a comment below with a genuine email address.  We’ll be contacting the winner via the provided email address so make sure you check it often.  What does the comment have to say?  It’s up to you, but perhaps something nice about Samsung, Verizon, RadioShack, or AndroidGuys!

  • Counsel Dew

    I’m switching to V from AT&T.. keyboard and android? Cookie goodness!

  • o0o0o0o ME GUSTA.

  • Radio Shack sure is promoting a heck of a lot of giveaways on all the major Android sites. I’m in for a chance at one of them!

  • I’d love an awesome QWERTY-slider Android phone.  My Incredible is nice, but sometimes I miss the keyboard of my old LG enV2.

  • When you have to buy a phone with contract, you feel helpless..! I hope this sort of stuff never happens in India.

    I don’t see anything wrong with a free phone, you guys are the best!

  • Homer Rich

    Physical keyboard!!!

  • George Herea

    Samsung makes the most beautiful phones in the world.

  • bdavis

    4G QWERTY? Can you go wrong? Maybe.. But hopefully not..

  • Maybe my thumbs will work with this kb… I ended up only using the soft kb on the OG after the first 6 months.

  • Verizon, Radio Shack and Android Guys rocking it like a BEAST!!

  • VZW has the best 4G LTE network in the world!!! Happy Turkey week 😉

    send the win to:  [email protected]

  • Nisarg

    Simply.. Smart and Latest Look with major features including Current Android OS

  • Joechisenall

    This is why I love radio shack, they always feed my gadget obsession!

  • Dave Chlan

    This would be great, thanks!

  • You’re dying to give away, I’m dying to win. That’s a win-win situation.

  • Any phone with a current iteration of Android is superior!

  • Mickey Argo

    Well, if I was going to get one with a physical keyboard….

  • Thom Cuneo

    would be a mice bump up from my OG droid

  • Adam

    I’m subscribed to the AndroidGuys news feed and read your articles on a daily basis. I’m rocking an OG Droid right now running a GB Rom. Samsung has always made some good quality products.. I’m sure the stratosphere is no different. Congrats to whoever wins!

  • Michael English

    Would love to win this phone for my friend! He currently has a droid eris that people can’t hear him on half the time and can’t afford an upgrade! Would like to help him have a happy holiday with Samsung, Radio Shack, Verizon & Android Guys!

  • Jimweda

    Fantastic! I win this and I am leaving Sprint for their lack of good customer support since I’ve had my Epic 4G. They have gone downhill every year since the days of Nextel. And yes, they will eventually cap and charge the smartphone data plan. This is the one thing they’ve had over everyone else, unlimited data. The took away the unlimited hotspot and there is no reason to think they will not do the same to our smartphone data plan. They lost so much money on Wimax they are cutting corners on things that make the customer suffer. With all their 4G phones it seems useless since most cannot access 4G and those who can say its buggy. Its a shame because I have been a long time Nextel/Sprint customer.

  • This would be an awesome upgrade for my wife who is currently rocking a LG Ally (or more accurately, griping about its ridiculously slow speed and low storage capacity).  She prefers the sliders like this and it would be an awesome Christmas gift for her! you can contact me at [email protected] to award it to me! 🙂

  • Jmusselwhite79

    Would really like to win this and give my trusty OG Droid the retirement that it deserves. 4G!!!!!

  • Bo S.


  • sog805

    Would make a great phone for the wifey who is still using an old moto droid!  Love all of Samsung phones…I currently have the Charge and its the best phone I’ve ever owned.  Thanks Android Guys!

  • Andy Raynor

    This would be an awesome Christmas surprise.  I could gift my DX to my nephew to replace his, I’m not kidding, *Kin*.

  • My wife has been telling me how much she needs a phone with a keyboard

  • Keith

    To be honest this will be for me, my original droid is dying and I don’t really want to spend the cash on a new phone right now.  This would awesome timing for me.

  • Sounds awesome.


  • Seriously need this 5-row keyboard beast to replace my Moto Droid.
    Missing 5-row keyboard from my G1.
