Would love to have another Nokia to replace my Lumia 925, from when Nokia bet on the wrong (windows) horse.

My dad has an old flip phone, my mum has some off brand, low end Android phone so I'd like to upgrade one of them to a new phone.

 

I'll probably do that this Christmas anyway when I visit them next.

I would love to replace my Sony Z5 (which was bought through Spark smile) which is starting to get a bit slow. I would pass the Z5 onto my son who is crying out for a new phone. The one he has is being held together by tape and a ratty old case.

I'd be upgrading my dear young son's iPhone 6, which is really starting to show its age technologically speaking.

 

He's desperate to get a new phone, but we simply can't justify the high price tag and this would be a godsend for all of us!

I've owned many Nokias, but not recently. Would be great to try another one! Also my wife's phone seems to be on the fritz, she'd love an upgrade. cool

Waiting for my HTC One M7 to die before I replace it, but I would replace it with a free one!

My son has been using my old S6 Edge, which was previously used by my daughter, so he has been getting hand me downs so looking for replacement.

 

He is getting older and using his phone a lot more than use to, plus the charging port on it is buggered, charging has been excruciatingly slow when plugged in, wireless charging works ok but still slow.

 

Fingers crossed to win one of these Nokia's.

So here is a picture of my old trusty phone - A Galaxy Note II

 

Click to see full size

 

Its somewhere around 5 years old and is still mostly ok, but the GPS has stopped working and its stuck way back on Android Kitkat 4.4.? - Might give it to one of the grandchildren for them to watch movies or something.

 

I even managed to pull it apart and check the connector hadnt come off the GPS module - but no joy. Quite proud I actually got it apart to be honest.

 

I installed LineageOS on it and really loved the plain android look and feel - but it seems its a bit unstable on this model phone - and did random reboots and wouldnt ring sometimes so I went back to the standard Samsung software.

 

The Nokia phones tick all the boxes for me.

 

  • Android One (- a real plus - Having tried standard android I really dont know why manufacturers have to tinker with it).
  • Project treble - seems Nokia have bitten the bullet and gone with that - means there should be great community support once Nokia stops supporting the updates - and I usually keep my phone for a while.
  • Also - They look really nice.

I'd be replacing my Nexus 5X, which I would give to my wife, who is using my old Nexus 5. I don't have another camera, so it had to do a bathroom selfie.

 

 

 

Thank you to Spark for the giveaway! Good luck everyone.

My mum's old Samsung phone. The front camera doesn't work, so she has to flip the phone around, or stand in front of a mirror, everytime we do a video call.

Nokia and I go way back. This is the circle of life...

 

 

My current Microsoft phone (550) is actually an honorary Nokia, but it's time to move on. I've loved my Windows phone, but sooner or later I have to admit that it is obsolete.

Either the 6.1 or the 7 would be a good replacement for my 5X which has died once (thanks LG bootloop) and is now on borrowed time...

I want to upgrade my Nexus 6P to another clean and bare Android device like these two Nokia phones.
