CNET / Samsung IFA 2014 Competition: We have a winner!

We had many great entries in our search for unique and creative uses for your smartphones. Here's the big winner plus some of our favourite finalists.

IFA 2014 competition winner
Our IFA 2014 trip competition winner Dion Brooks

CNET and Samsung have been running a competition to find one clever and creative reader to send all the way to Berlin for this year's IFA technology expo -- and now the results are in. We received many great entries, with a lot of smarter-than-average uses for everyone's smartphones.

But there could be only one, and we'd like to congratulate Dion Brooks as the lucky reader who will be joining us in Germany. Dion's entry went for a particularly fun and creative bent, turning his smartphone into a miniature home cinema for rows of adoring Lego viewers.

It was a close fight for the prize, with showering with a Galaxy S5, photographic shopping lists, and a DIY speaker system all very close behind.

Thanks to everyone for their entries. We can't wait to test your creativity again in the future!
