It’s not unusual to really want an LG smartphone, so we’re giving you all a chance to win one.

The phone we’re putting up for grabs is the LG G4 Beat, a mid-range smartphone with a rock-solid camera and some tweaked manual controls which, while not quite as good as those of the LG G4, are pretty handy nonetheless.

The basic design is very similar to the G4, as the Beat has the same curve which feels quite nice to touch and hold to your ear, a gorgeous 5.2-inch screen and remarkable touch responsiveness. It’s made some compromises here and there to keep its price down – that Qualcomm 615 chipset is nothing to write home about, for instance – but the Beat is a solid offering nonetheless.

To get your hands on one for mahala, we’re asking you to do something musical.

Remember that old 90s show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air? Remember Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro) and his hilarious dance moves? Well, we’re asking you to submit your best Vines of yourselves doing your best imitation of that dance.

If you’ve never seen it before (which is doubtful thanks to re-runs), here is Carlton in action:

Vine is a video-recording app that works on all mobile phone platforms, and which shoots videos with a maximum run time of 15 seconds. That’s more than enough to capture yourselves/your friends/your neighbour/random people on the street doing their best Carlton impressions. You don’t have to use all 15 seconds, though – videos of any length up to and including 15 seconds are fine.

Once you have your video, submit it to @htxtafrica via Twitter with the hashtag #lgg4beatdanceoff, and we’ll watch all the submissions and choose a winner, which we’ll announce in early December, giving us time to (hopefully) get the winner their prize before Christmas. We might not succeed, the end of the year rush being what it is, but we promise to try.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
