YugaTech – LG G2 Contest: Index Finger Challenge!




It’s time to give out some really cool prizes to our loyal readers here so YugaTech and LG Mobile are going to give away one brand new LG G2!

As you may already know, LG G2 is the flagship smartphone of LG Mobile. It’s the only Android phone on US Consumer Reports’ Top 10 Electronic Products of 2013 and has been hailed as “The Best Smartphone in the World” by Stuff Magazine.

What sets it apart from all the other smartphones in the market is its Rear Key Button, which is a unique innovation inspired by the human use of the index finger when using a smartphone. (You may check out this TVC to get an idea.)

Here’s the mechanics of the challenge:

1. Come up with a short video that shows the Most Amazing Thing you can do with your Index Finger. Be creative with your entry. You can be funny, witty, deep, daring or just surprise us.
2. Upload it on YouTube.
3. Video title should be “YugaTech – LG G2 Index Finger Challenge: Your own entry TITLE here
4. Video description should include “LG G2. Learning from You.” and this link to the LG G2 TV commercial http://bit.ly/1diSWIi
5. Once uploaded on YouTube, leave a comment below with a link to your submission.

You may submit as many creative entries to increase your chances of winning.

Our criteria for judging:
70% Creativity
30% YouTube Views

Representatives from LG Philippines and Yuga will be judging the entries. Submission starts today and ends in December 15. We’ll pick the winner and award the LG G on the 3rd week of December.

    I hope the judges DO NOT base their decision on how ‘professionally made’ the video is. Lugi naman yung mga hindi masyadong marunong sa video editing.

    • gaspershut says:

      Actually sir/ma’am, the judges must use background check. I’m a Nurse and doesn’t have an IT background. Halos half day ko din ginawa yung videos ko na yan at sobrang hirap. Medyo d lang ako ngandahan sa comment mo sorry. Pero wala naman sa criteria a na bawal gumamit ng Video editing software. Sabi kasi creativity, at dun ko nakikita sarili ko sa creativity. And there are tons of way to do amazing videos the key is just “Creativity”

    • Justin says:

      Hmm…. I don’t think fdsf said na ‘bawal gumamit ng Video editing software’.

    • homer says:

      Video editing, you can not edit videos without using a Video Editing Software ar applications. A simple splicing or changing the format of a video uses a video editing program.

    • sdr says:

      nakita mo ng 70% will be based on creativity, natural hindi pipili ang mga judges ng hindi pinaghirapan na video. kahit na may background sa video editing yung sasali, kasalanan ba nila kung sanay silang mag-edit. alalahanin mo hindi pisong kendi ang prize.

    • myn says:

      This is really great! What a fantastic smartphone. I wanna grab one now :)

    • mayn says:

      70% will be based on creativity/ Grabe . dapat creative ka talaga. bawal puchu puchu :(

  12. hehe says:

  60. Michael says:

    “Representatives from LG Philippines and Yuga will be judging the entries. Submission starts today and ends in December 15. We’ll pick the winner and award the LG G on the 3rd week of December.

    LG G? anong phone yun?

    • Harvey says:

      malinaw naman po yung content ng message,baka po na typo error lang or LG G series po ibig sabihin,wala naman pong kaso yun!

    • Michael says:

      malinaw yung content alam ko. pero baka LG G series nga. sana generous, LG G2. :)

    • Romar says:

      “It’s time to give out some really cool prizes to our loyal readers here so YugaTech and LG Mobile are going to give away one brand new LG G2!”

      So it must be the LG G2. Sana nga! Good luck satin. :)

  61. Dona says:

    Entries are so creative! Hope there’ll be consolation price for atleast the 2nd and 3rd placer. :D

  62. Kimpoy says:

    What if youtube views are frozen and it will take some time for youtube to verify the views? I see videos stopped at “301+” views.

    • Michael says:

      Big technical problem

    • Renz says:

      Kasi Tank views lang yun!hinigpitan ng youtube ang pag update ng views pag isang IP lang, madadaya jan yung mga naka private yung video statistics,dun kasi talaga makikita ang original view count and time watched =)

    • Cat says:

      ^ as far as i’m concerned every new video uploaded goes through this, no matter how “real” the views are. My only concern is what if the “verification” of views will take a lot more days than the day of announcement of the winner? So yung mga noon pa nagupload lang yung makikinabang sa view count? Tsaka dun sa statistics, same thing, the one’s counted are those that are already verified, meaning those are still not final. Anyway, I usually see videos with frozen views to count up after 4 days it was uploaded. :)

  63. Dash says:

    Here’s my entry, Good luck sa lahat ng mga nagpadala ng video! :D

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CF3ZFO7rjY

  64. Renz says:

    Our criteria for judging:
    70% Creativity
    30% YouTube Views

    Hindi kayo dapat mangamba sa views,30% nga sya,pero may 70% pa for creativity, kung confident kayo sa entry nyo at kung binuhos nyo lahat,wala kayo dapat ikatakot…Good Luck sa mga sumali! napaka swerte ng mananalo! haha

  65. Jarkhi Bautista says:

    Pinost ko na tong video ko dati pa.. pero hindi ko alam kung bakit hindi lumalabas yung video. So sa mga gustong makakita, ito po yung link.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Mi2rAGeb4U

    Pinaghirapan ko po siya kaya sana magustuhan niyo. Maraming salamat po! :)

  66. Concerned Citizen says:

    Importante pa rin yung 30%. Let’s say yung may highest views eh automatic na 30%. Tapos dahil sa layo ng agwat mo sa vid na may highest views eh mga 4% ka lang. haha.As of now 2365 ang views nung leading.

    highest views = 2365: 100% x .3 = 30%

    So kapag 301 ang view mo,
    (301/2365)x 100 x. 3 = 3.81% :(

    Popular Entry (W/ the highest number of views, as of now 2365)
    Creativity: 50%
    Views: 30%
    Total: 80%

    Creative Entry (stucked in the dreaded 301 views)
    Creativity: 70%
    Views: 4%
    Total: 74%

    Winner: Popular entry with 80%

    So kahit maperfect mo creativity but you are stuck w/ 301 views wala din.

    • Concerned Citizen says:

      kunyare lang yung creatity score ni popular entry xD

    • juana says:

      kagaguhan lang kasi yung bigyan ng points para sa views. hindi ibig sabihin porke nag-view ka ng isang entry eh gusto mo na yun. Hindi ba pwedeng curious ka lang kung ano ang laman nung video? walang pinagkaiba sa likes to na pwdeng dayain lang

  67. gjcfoj says:

    Hi guys!
    Just wondering what happened to the competition. Who won? The 3rd week of December already passed

  68. Nigga says:

    Hi guys!

    I hope there will be a consolation prize for the other contestants who deserve to win by exerting their efforts in making their videos. Goodluck #yugatech #MerryChristmas #HappyNewYEar #LGG2

    • juana says:

      So lahat pala dapat may prize. Lahat nag-exert ng effort eh. Meron ba namang gumawa ng video na walang effort?

  69. Michael says:

    magtatapos na taon wala pa rin?

  70. jed says:

    so.. sino ba ang nanalo? ng.anounce na ba?

  71. faitred says:

    Soooooooooooooooo, what happened? Did you guys forget about this competition?

    Sir Abe Olandres at least have the decency to tell us what happened. Anything will do, just make up a story if you like, just don’t ignore your faithful readers. Its sad that you dont even bother to post a comment that would at least give us something. Should we wait? Is the competition still on going? Did LG run out of G2s? Was the LG G2 intended for the competition stolen? Did you mean you were going to announce the winner 3rd week of December “2014”? Did you donate the LG G2 for charity instead?

    Anything Sir Abe, but please don’t ignore us ;)
    Sincerely the faithful reader…

  72. Abe says:

    Dear readers,

    I changed my mind and decided to keep the LG G2 for myself. For all of you who took the time to make and upload your video entries, all I can say is… SUCKS TO BE YOU!

    Have a great new year!

    Much love,
    Abe O.

    • Harvey says:
