Back in May, we teamed up with Samsung to offer one lucky person a chance to show their mum how much they care with a Galaxy Note II. Since dads are pretty awesome, too, we've once again joined forces with Sammy to give one lucky soul a chance to show his or her dad that he's the man with a Galaxy S4.

The Galaxy S 4 (our review) has all the things that a dad can appreciate – a good camera, a blazing-fast user experience, and more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at (not sure why you'd shake a stick at something like bells and whistles in the first place though). All that should be enough to keep him entertained during his downtime at work, but the GS4's business side will help him get things done, too. It's a win-win.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

  • Anthony Restaino

Update: Here's Anthony and his dad with the Galaxy S4:

  • cgurholt

    My dad could get rid of his old Blackberry Curve and upgrade to a modern phone!

  • Adam Goldberg

    He would get rid of his bbcurve from 6 years ago because my mother guilted him into giving her his upgrade. The phone is falling apart and the track ball is no longer in the phone. We don't know where it went. The B key is missing and the space bar broke in half. The screen is falling in onitself. its so sad, like a swimming pool without water. Really really lonely and sad!

  • PH

    If my Dad got a Galaxy S4, he would probably shit his pants, not just because he is getting older, but because it is so amazing.

    My Dad would not benefit at all because he still has never even sent a text. He would be completely lost with a smartphone. However, I am a dad myself, so I'm just going to pretend that my daughter is entering this for me. I would benefit because I would get a free phone, then I could regift my current phone to one of my other smartphoneless relatives that would actually appreciate a smartphone. :)
