Win a Note 7 from XDA and Poetic Cases! [Winner Announced!]
We’re teaming up with our friends at Poetic Cases to give away a shiny new Note 7. Specifically, we’ll be giving away the international unlocked model (when it becomes available in about a month) that comes with the superior Exynos 8890 CPU, which, compared to the Snapdragon 820, offers a bump in performance and battery life. We’ve partnered with Poetic in the past because we like their selection of quality, budget-friendly cases that fit a wide variety of devices, whether you want minimal, sleek protection or something more robust that can withstand serious abuse.
The contest: All countries welcome! Show us the best picture you’ve ever taken on your mobile (must be SFW), then post it to social being sure to add #BestPicEverXDA while tagging @PoeticCases. Then, leave a comment here with a link to your post. If your current phone doesn’t take nice pictures, borrow your friend’s phone, use your tablet, or heck even use your laptop. Contest will end in about a week, so go do it!
The winner: the lucky duck that’s going to get a new Note 7 is…..stevessvt! You can see his winning entry here. Thanks to all who participated! And thanks to Poetic for sponsoring this contest.
Update: Some have asked how we chose the winner. We used a random-number generator to determine a winner. Sorry for any confusion.
More about Poetic Cases
We really like Poetic Cases because they have different styles of cases to cater to all tastes and protection requirements, and most of their products are inexpensive (coming in under $20 and even under $15 for some models) and available with Prime shipping on Amazon. And while you’re browsing their selection on Amazon, note how great the reviews are–most of their products are rated 4 and above, with many hitting the near-perfect 4.5 rating. Additionally, most Poetic cases are available in a multitude of colors so you can pick the right one for the look you’re going for.
Poetic Affinity Series
If you like minimal protection so that you can still admire the beauty of your phone, the Affinity Series is for you. For this type of case, Poetic carefully researched critical points of weakness that might be susceptible to damage during a drop, and have applied added protection to these points while keeping the rest of the case clear with a polycarbonate material. You can get the Affinity for the LG G5, Galaxy S7 Edge, HTC 10, and most other popular phones.
Poetic Revolution Series
If you’re looking for more robust protection, along with dust/water resistance thanks to the ports being sealed, and also extreme grip, the Revolution Series is worthy of consideration. Some versions of the Poetic Revolution case have an awesome kickstand built right into the case, like for the Nexus 6P and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
Poetic Quarterback Series
Finally, for the perfect balance of minimalism with the right amount of protection, Poetic has their Quarterback Series. Offering shock protection along with a strong grip thanks to its honeycomb texture, the Quarterback series feels excellent in-hand. You can grab one for the Note 7, Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S7 Edge.
