Several days ago, the lives of 5 lucky PhoneArena users changed forever. Okay, that's probably a bit of an exaggeration, although winning a prize from one of our giveaways is a pretty big deal. The prizes? Smartphones, of course! Here's what was up for grabs in the latest giveaway and who won it...

13. xperiaDROID (Posts: 4813; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Congrats to the winners! But PhoneArena, I wish there will be a competition for everyone including people outside of US. How's that sound?
34. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1340; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
those in the us are so lucky, they get every content on google play, they can buy the nexus 4 for a dirt-cheap,
39. xperiaDROID (Posts: 4813; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Yup, not fair for the people who are outside of US, including us. :(

Different laws and rules apply in different countries (plus different phones and networks and shipping rates) so trying to do an international competition takes a lot more time, money, and effort than a relatively local one. Not only that, the phones were for sprint which is US-only.
18. iushnt (Posts: 461; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)
Yaa.. If I had won then I would pay the shipping cost.. :p
31. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1340; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
TechnoBuffalo is giving away to anyone in the world, well, unless you live in north korea or shitty country like that
35. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
You know what, calling other countries s**t tells a lot about the person you are. You may not like them but not all of them living there are douches, which I think you are based on your irrational hatred of BlackBerry and these countries which you regularly call third world and s**t.
36. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1340; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
lol are you north koreans? why are you offended? yes they are, people who live in north korea are douches and not considered as a human being, Nuff said
37. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
Get your s**t together. Oh really, not considered human beings by whom? You? You aren't the parameter for anything, you haven't done anything worth mentioning other than commenting here. It's North Korea's leader that sucks and the last time I checked, not everyone is a douche. As a matter of fact, yeah, someone with no credentials ever, with a history of blindly disregarding facts and hating something/someone which/who have considerably achieved than what you have, and calling other countries s**t, irrespective of me living there or not, tells a lot about your thinking and level of maturity.
21. mrraider602 (Posts: 19; Member since: 27 Mar 2013)
Thx PA™…You made the wife very happy! And to everybody hatin just cuz I don't post on every article like an id**t, I'm on this site every day reading all the great articles looking forward to the new technology we are all lucky enough to experience.
23. Neurone (Posts: 54; Member since: 05 Mar 2013)
Good for you mrraidar, people post here on PA everyday not because they are id**ts but they love to interact with other ppl on differnt tech issues....anyways congrats mrraidar....
28. xperiaDROID (Posts: 4813; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Congrats to you! Remember, posting on every article is not an idiot. Posting on every article can gain the power of communication.
32. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1340; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
what are you gonna do with that phone? use it or sell it?
38. mrraider602 (Posts: 19; Member since: 27 Mar 2013)
