Break language barriers with S-Translator – customers who are traveling abroad this holiday season will appreciate this! They can say or text what they need translated and the GALAXY S4 will read or text the translation back.

Provides effortless innovation – features like Smart Pause, Air View, Air

Gesture and Optical Reader detect your motions, face and voice to enable screen control with no need for finger touch activation (and the screen can be used with gloves, too!)

Group play – Users can connect with friends and family around them to play and co-create content, without the need for a Wi-Fi connection or cell signal.

Toss it in your bag, worry-free – constructed with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, this phone is as tough as it is beautiful, and can withstand the daily bump and grind (or last minute trip to a tropical destination to ring in the New Year!)

  16. Matthew Tully says

    Those would be awesome. Been a really tight Christmas this year….we were able to make sure that our daughter was bought for, which is the main thing. We would have liked to have had a little extra to buy each other a little something but both of us ended up off do to medical issues. There ya go my sob story for today… Local radio station gave me a pair of tickets to Johnny Reid (she doesn’t know yet and doesn’t see my twitter) so I was able to get us a night out….it’s something.

  17. Samantha G says

    I would give the headphones to my good friend! He is such an amazing musician and it would be amazing to give him some great headphones for his music work!

  18. Lisa A. says

    I would give these to the hubs. He flies for work a lot and is always going through earbuds. I think he would really appreciate these, especially for the sound quality they have. Thanks for the chance with this great giveaway!

  19. olga says

    It would be a gift to myself – after doing all this shopping for everyone else, it would be wonderful to settle down and play on the samsung!

  20. Crystal S. says

    My “little” sister:) I’m so proud of her and I’m way too broke to get her something so awesome that she deserves!

  21. Susan Johnson says

    I’d actually keep these for myself, because I’m technologically primitive. I don’t even own an iPod. I’ve just never had the money to spend, so I’ve just done without it all.

  22. Lemon_Cupid says

    AS much as I’d love to keep either of these giveaways, I know that I’ll probably end up giving them to my son. He would just about die if I won!

  23. Amanda T says

    My husband he makes music that is who I would give these beats headphones to . He would be perfect for these Beats headphones.He has really beat up old ones from his days in the 70’s.

  24. says

    Seeing that this contest ends on December 20th (My oldest sons birthday) I would gift this to him. He has had the worst luck with his phone & I know he could use a new one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. Teresa Claire says

    If I won, I would give this to my daughter. I didn’t know about this program with Telus and it is because of your great review that I know now, thank you. I went on one of the links that you submitted and it looks like a great way to own a tablet…Telus even has iPad products with this new program!

  26. Kelly Horsman says

    If I won I would Give my New/Godson the Head phones, cuz he’s been asking for them ever since they came out… He would go crazy if I won them & gave them to him & also he would be forever grateful & Thankful… I know he would for sure.. He’s 14 yrs. old & he is a very good kid.. Respectful, caring, helpful & loving & would do anything he could to help someone else when in need if he was able too… I wish I could afford to buy him a pair but not able to work due to health reason.. Anyways & the phone I would give to my Mom… She doesn’t have a cell phone but she should cuz she works late at night & live out in the country… So it would make me feel much better if she had phone incase emergency on her way home… Thanks for a chance at a great give away… Good Luck To U All Who Entered Giveaway & Wish U All A Happy Holiday…

  27. Ester G says

    I would have to keep this one for myself because my current phone (first generation Samsung Galaxy) is a little long in the tooth

  28. bina edwards says

    everyones got a phone but me, so its for me. I DON’T have one as I don’t go to the city unless I’m with someone else (I don’t have a car, so go with my daughter) When she moves out I’ll prob get a car and I’ll def need a phone as I know its not safe to drive on our highways without one. I certainly don’t need one for anything else (prob the main reason I’ve not gotten one ) We have a home phone due to the fact that you can’t get internet unless you have a land line (and prob won’t ever change out here) I know you can get internet with your cell but from what all my co-workers say, its not very good and its even worse then the old dial up (quite a few people I work with live in a tiny town of 7 houses lol)

  29. Sarah says

    Depending, I would give this to my hubby or nephew. Both of them are techies; I would have to check to see if my nephew has or not.

  30. Elizabeth Matthiesen says

    I’d give the earphones to my middle son and keep the phone for myself. I have a Samsung now but could do with updating it, or so my son says ;-)

  31. Thaina says

    If I were lucky enough to win, I would hand this prize over to my hubster. He’s been wanting these headphones for a while now. I would love to see the excitement on his face.

  32. MGMum says

    I would give the Galaxy S4 mini to my older son who is dying for a cell phone, and I would give the beats to my younger son. Share the wealth, so to speak! Thanks for the opportunity to win! :) Enjoy the holidays.

  33. Charlene Lucas says

    My son received his first cell phone (a slide phone) when he turned 14 on December 23rd five years ago and he turns 19 on Monday and he still has his first phone so I would give this to him!

  34. says

    I would love to win the headphones, mine are always getting stolen by the kids. I tried them on at the store and could not believe the sound.. They would be heaven

  35. darci says

    My son who is in college; music and a cell phone are his life and he has a really old handed down blackberry so this would rock his Christmas, the headphones are on his wish list already so this would be ridiculously awesome to win for him!!! Thanks for this chance!
