It will cost you nothing to follow the instruction on this post to be among the Winners

iPhone X

iPhone X (“X” pronounced “ten” /?t?n/) is a smartphone designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. It was announced on September 12, 2017, alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at the Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park campus. The phone was released on November 3, 2017. This iPhone marks the device’s tenth anniversary, with “X” being the symbol for “ten” in Roman numerals.

iPhone X

The iPhone X is intended to showcase what Apple thinks is technology of the future, specifically adopting OLED screen technology for the first time in iPhone history, as well as using a glass and stainless-steel form factor, offering wireless charging, and removing the home button in favor of introducing Face ID, a new authentication method using advanced technologies to scan the user’s face to unlock the device, as well as for the use of animated emojis called Animoji. The new, nearly bezel-less form factor marks a significant change to the iPhone user interaction, involving swipe-based gestures to navigate around the operating system rather than the typical home button used in every previous iteration of the iPhone lineup.

How do I win an iPhone X?

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an Android phablet smartphone designed, developed and marketed by Samsung Electronics. Unveiled on 23 August 2017, it is the successor to the discontinued Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It was released on 15 September 2017.

The Note 8 improves on the core device specifications and hallmark S Pen features of previous devices. While retaining the overall same look as the Galaxy S8, it features an upgraded processor and, for the first time in Samsung’s smartphone history, a dual-camera system; one functions as a wide-angle lens and the other as a telephoto lens, with both featuring 12 MP resolution and optical image stabilization. The S Pen has increased pressure sensitivity levels and its software has been upgraded to offer improved notetaking capabilities on the always-on display, as well as the animated GIF and improved translation features.

How do I win a Note 8?

Easy. Just follow @Androidvilaz @dbrand and @MKBHD on Twitter. That’s literally it.

If you were already following the accounts before the giveaway went live, don’t worry – you’re already eligible to win.

Can I enter to win both an iPhone X and Note 8?

You sure can. Follow on the Instagram and Twitter to double up your chances.

When are you drawing the winners?

All 50 winners will be drawn on Christmas – December 25, 2017.

Is the giveaway open worldwide?

Of course. It always is.

How are iPhone X winners selected?

Randomly, from a cross-section of the Instagram followers.

How do entrants know that the iPhone X winner selection is truly random?

We’re using a custom Python script which was specifically programmed for this giveaway. It uses the Instagram API Platform to download a list of all the Instagram followers.

Once the full lists have been loaded, the script generates a list of IDs which exist on the lists. This ensures that the potential winner is following both accounts.

From this pool of unique account IDs, a random entry is picked using a randomly generated seed based on the NumPy project. This random pick is the resulting winner.

For every subsequent winner selection, the script will run again. This triggers the Instagram API Platform followed-by fetch again. The script will download the newest followers and keep going until it reaches the followers which were downloaded during the previous run. What this does is save us from having to download a full list of followers every time a winner is selected – while also ensuring that everyone is included and has an equal chance of winning for each random draw.

How will you get in touch with winners?

For iPhone X winners, we’ll get in touch via Instagram DM. For Note 8 winners, we’ll reach out via Twitter DM.

How do I avoid being scammed?
First off, use common sense. If someone DMs you asking for your password and credit card information, it’s obviously a scam. Don’t reply to any tweets or DMs saying you’ve won unless they come from the official @dbrand. Furthermore, never give out your credit card information, Twitter password, or Instagram password to anyone. Especially not someone asking you to “cover the shipping fees.” We’ll never ask for this. The best way to avoid getting scammed is to check this page when we announce that a new winner has been published. If you see your name listed under Winners, click the link to ensure it’s actually your Twitter or Instagram account. If it really is your account, congratulations! Check your DMs for further instructions.

How are prizes shipped?
All prizes are shipped via FedEx with tracking. If you win, you’ll receive the tracking number once your prize has been shipped.
If I win, will I have to pay anything to receive the prize (shipping costs, duties, taxes, etc.)?
Of course not. Everything is pre-paid.

If I win, can I use my existing SIM card on the device?
Yep. Every device we’re shipping is fully unlocked and can be used anywhere.

If I win, do I have to do anything once I receive the device?
Tweet a photo or post one on Instagram, tagging the instagram account on this post , to verify that you’ve received your prize.
