The Bluboo Xtouch didn't exactly get the most favorable score when we recently reviewed it, but it does have a few sweet features like a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button and a camera that's not too shabby in the right conditions. The 5-inch display looks pretty good at 1080p, and hopefully with a few software updates the rest of the phone may be able to catch up in the near future.
But rather than take my word for it, you should try it out yourself by entering into this giveaway and hopefully finding it on your doorstep in a couple of weeks time :) For those who are curious, this is a global giveaway and you can enter regardless of where you are on the planet - awesome! Bluboo and Gearbest, who is currently selling the device for USD$179.99, have come together to fully sponsor this giveaway for Neowin.
We've set up a bunch of different entry methods all ranging from simply commenting on this article through to shooting out some tweets about the giveaway. Some of these can only be done once, but some can be done once per day. Note that the drawing will be done through Rafflecopter, so if you're going to enter by commenting on this article or by liking Neowin on Facebook then you have to make sure to register that you're doing so on Rafflecopter.
The entrance methods are below. You have to register everything you do within the Rafflecopter widget. You can do as many or as few as you like, but note that doing more than one substantially increases your chances of winning:
- Go to Facebook and hit the 'like' button on the Neowin page
- Go to Facebook and hit the 'like' button on Bluboo's page
- Follow Neowin's Twitter feed (@Neowinfeed)
- Follow my Twitter feed for information on tech, as well as being kept up to date on my latest articles (@stevenjohns)
- Tweet the message described in the Tweet function of Rafflecopter below (once per day)
- Make a comment below telling us about which smartphone feature that you can't live without and will never make any concessions on!
- For our existing readers: Link to the best post/comment you've posted in the forums (or on an article!) from November 2015 or earlier (within Rafflecopter) - what is "best" is a personal thing; your best post could be one that is funny, informative or just received a bunch of likes from other members. It could be anything really: this is just giving our existing readers a way to get more entries :P
The contest will run until January 1st at midnight, GMT, so be sure to enter soon and good luck!
- I will be screening for ghost entries, so no cheating! No, really, I am unreasonably anal about this and will disqualify you at the drop of a hat.
- Bluboo and Gearbest are fully sponsoring this giveaway and will be dispatching the device to the winner directly from their warehouses, so availability for the device and shipping date will be dependent on Bluboo and Gearbest and completely independent from Neowin.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Shaydx for winning, and good luck next time to everyone else! :)
