All you need to do is show us a snap that lifts your spirits, and you could walk away with one of the best Android smartphones around to help keep you smiling through the last little bit of winter. Sound good? Read on for the full details…


Would you like to become the proud owner of a brand new Sony Xperia Z3 Compact? Sure you would: it’s loaded with high end specs including a powerful quad-core processor, a 20.7-Megapixel camera and a completely waterproof casing. We’re giving one away to a lucky Instagrammer who can make us grin with their favourite square shot.

It’s all in the name of helping us celebrate the launch of the shiny new @vodafoneuk Instagram profile, which we’ll be using to keep you up to date with the latest and greatest handsets and mobile news. For your chance to win, all you need to do is tag us (@vodafoneuk) on Instagram in a shot that #MakesYouHappy.
