It is that time of the year again as the Holidays are now here. Which means in addition to the turkey, presents, family gatherings, and lots of Holiday TV, it is also time for our annual Great Android Holiday Giveaway. Each year AndroidHeadlines looks to close out the year with a giveaway contest that offers more prizes to more winners and the Great Android Holiday Giveaway 2017 / 2018 is no exception.

Helped by a number of our partners in the industry the 3rd annual Great Android Holiday Giveaway is a great opportunity to net some free technology gear. In total, there are more than 30 prizes available this year and ones which span the technology scene with Android phones, tablets, smartwatches, Chromebooks, all on offer. All of the prizes listed below have been kindly donated to us by manufacturers and carriers for the purpose of this giveaway. So a big thank you to all of them for helping make this year’s giveaway our biggest ever. Now to the good stuff…

The Great Android Holiday Giveaway 2017-2018 Prizes

Sprint is not holding back this year as the US carrier has kindly donated no less than the eight prizes to the giveaway and they are all flagship smartphones. For those who like Samsung phones, Sprint is offering two Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones. Those looking for something a little bit different might be happy to know Sprint has also provided us with four Essential PH-1 phones to be given away, while the last two prizes come in the form of a Moto Z2 Force Edition and an LG G6. For more information on all of these phones, as well everything else Sprint, click here.


Motorola is another one who is in the giving spirit this year as the company is offering two of its latest smartphones… with all the trimmings. Up for grabs is a Verizon Moto Z2 Force Edition and an unlocked Moto Z2 Play. Both of these prizes will also come with all the Moto Mods you can think of, including a Moto gamepad, a Moto Insta-Share projector, a 360 camera Moto Mod, a Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa, and a JBL SoundBoost 2 Moto Mod. So if you are the winner of either of these Moto-branded smartphones, you are in for a real treat and can expect quite the bundle to arrive in the mailbox.

Google is also joining in the fun this year and has kindly donated a brand new Google Pixel 2 XL to the giveaway. This is the company’s latest smartphone and comes with a number of selling points including squeezable sides and the Google Assistant built-in. Although that is not all the winner will receive as Google is also throwing in a new 2017 Google Daydream View virtual reality headset as well. So consider this prize a Google VR-ready smartphone package. Find out more about the Google Pixel 2 XL and the Daydream View by clicking here.

Also joining the party this year is ZTE and if you are in the market for a different type of smartphone altogether, then here you go. ZTE has kindly donated a brand new ZTE Axon M to this year’s giveaway. What makes this phone so special is that it comes with two displays which can interact with each other to form one much larger display surface area – making it unlike any other phone currently on the market. If you have ever wished your smartphone was twice the size without actually being twice the size, the Axon M is the phone for you. It is worth pointing out that ZTE has actually donated two Axon M smartphones – so two lucky winners will be getting their hands on this new (in every sense of the word) smartphone.
