My Nexus 5x has been through many battles and is barely hanging on. An Nokia would be a fitting replacement a would let me take great photos of my new son (12 weeks)

Would love to win this, perfect opportunity to upgrade from my iphone 7 to give android a go again (had the galaxy S3 years ago), having seen some of the newer androids friends have shown me I do get a little bit of phone envy.

As a formal Nexus (4, 5) phone user, Nokia with 'Android One' seems to be the right choice for me!


This will be a great opportunity to going back to Android from Iphone SE.

I will be replacing my Samsung J5 ace, my first phone was a Nokia brick, it lasted drops from the 3rd floor classes at school, swimming with me during summer and even being run over by my mates car. My first smartphone was the Nokia 1520 and after many years of it slowly degrading and being damaged (this was still a brick and more or less impossible to break) moved to the Samsung J5 ace. It would be wonderful for my third smartphone to be another Nokia.

I'm going to noob myself past judgement

My wife currently has a J5 Prime that she hates and reminds me at least fortnightly.  When I suggest buying a new phone however I get "that would be a waste of money"!!!  Can't win there - so winning a new phone will gain a brownie point (can't own more than one) and not "wasting money".


Procrastination eventually pays off.

This would replace my Moto G5plus, which was a replacement for a Nexus 5x which started bootlooping due to h/w issue.


Love the Moto but not impressed with lack of OS updates - so going to Android One would sort that.

Looking to get a new phone this year and the Apple offerings are just a bit of a yawn fest at the moment.  Like the idea of a phone with stock Android

Have had a S7 edge for almost 2yrs now. Not quite impressed with Samsung's update schedules though. Still no sign of receiving oreo anytime soon and now the next version is already announced as well.


They forget about their flagships or more so degrade the priority for their flagships after 1yr. Thats a abit sad


Would be interesting to have a handset that has some really decent specs and also comes with seamless updates


Looking forward to getting back on to the Nokia bandwagon

My work phone is an iPhone 6s. Company policy is to provide the oldest former flagship phone that is still available to purchase hence the iPhone 6s that was still on the market last year after the 8 and X had been released.


My personal phone is a blue iPhone 5c hand me down from my wife. Its been dropped in the toilet (not by me) and run over in the car (also not by me) and had its screen replaced (this I did do myself). A Nokia would replace the personal 5c and give me the chance to sample Android for the first time.

I have a wonderful Xiaomi Redmi 3S .. it did die in January and I had to bake it in the oven to make it work again .. the oven bake did discolour some of the plastic but now its working again I am very nervous it might die unexpectedly ..

Thanks for the email reminder, I’d meant to enter earlier and totally forgot.

I’m sporting a very bruised and battered iphone 6S Plus which lasts me from about 6am until about 10am before needing to be plugged in.

My very first phone was a Nokia 5110 way back in 1998 I think, and several handsets that followed over the next 5 years were all Nokias. I’d be intrigued to see what has developed in the intervening years.

Thanks for the opportunity!
