Nokia 7.1 phone

This giveaway is over. Natasha Quick from Auckland and Paul Cumming from Geraldine each won a Nokia 7.1 mobile phone. Congratulations. I found a slightly older Nokia 7 Plus in my review cupboard and held a bonus draw. Julia Norton won that phone. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who took part. 

I used an online random number generator to pick the winners and first announced the results this morning on Twitter. The process could do with a little refinement, I plan to offer more giveaways between now and Christmas, so stay tuned. 

Original Post:

Spark has given me two Nokia 7.1 phones worth $600 to giveaway to readers. To find out more about this phone, check out my recent Nokia 7.1 phone review. The phone is remarkable value for money and has a non-nonsense version of Android. I like it a lot.

To win one of the phones you must use the panel on the right of the screen to subscribe to my site via email. You’ll need to have a valid email address and be a New Zealand resident to win the prize.

I have no intention of spamming anyone who signs up, although at some point in the future you might get an invitation to get an email newsletter. Nor will I sell or otherwise give your email to anyone else.

The other thing you have to do is leave a comment below this post saying you wants to be included in the draw. Only one entry per person. I trust you not to abuse this.

That’s it.

Entries close at midnight on Sunday November 25. I’ll announce the winners in the comments at the bottom of this post On Monday November 26.

This is my first giveaway, so it’s a test run of the procedure. If this works well, there’ll be a number of other giveaways between now and Christmas.

A couple of words about the phones. The first one is in an unopened box. The second one is the model I used to review the phone. That means I used it for a few days, it’s not scratched or damagaged. I’ll remember to reset it before I send it to you by NZ Post when the competitor closes.

  1. Please include me in the draw. I’ve been looking forward to trying Android One and the new Nokias, heard great things.

  2. Why do I want to win this??? Well, my 11 year old daughter has a more up-to-date phone than I do. And we bought hers second hand. And because I live in a house dominated by Apple devices, I think getting an Android phone would allow me a balanced view of mobile technology!

  3. Put me in the draw – having used my daughter’s Nokia 5.1 I’d happily take a 7.1 for myself

  4. Thanks Bill. I read your review when you first posted it and ever since I’ve had my eye on one of these for my wife’s three-yearly phone upgrade – hoping for a good deal on Boxing Day. I think winning one would make me husband of the year.

  5. Thanks Bill I would appreciate it if you would enter me into the draw for the phone Thanks

  6. The ‘fight’ between operating systems, computer and cell-phone etc. has always been dominated by money-motives rather than by technical and utilitarian excellence.

    IMO, and in the interests of human evolution, we need the benefits of an operating system following real-world paradigms addressing reality rather than gaming, virtualisation and self-indulgent cultures.

    In spite of the excellence afforded humanity by the underlying electronic-technologies, the dominant operating systems, driven more by profit-motives and social-media + gamer culture rather than enhancements with integrity and stability, are retarding our progress.,, …are Android and iOS etc. addressing our needs for more efficient and peaceful lives?

    Will my ‘winning’ of an IPhone enhance my real-life needs?
    Will my present trialling of a iPhone 5S iOS12 be abandoned in favour of some flavour of Android?

  7. I’d really like to have a Nokia uograde to the 7.1 count me in the draw please .

  8. Please enter me into the draw for this phone. Haven’t seen a Nokia in at least a decade! Brings back memories of having one around 2001. They were unbreakable! Cool to see a new version — I’d love to try it out, it looks like a great bit of kit.

  9. Hi Bill,

    Please include me in the draw. I recently bricked my phone 🙁 and was keen on phones with stock android experience. I absolutely love Nokia 7.1 specs and heard a lot about its build quality.

    Thanks.

  10. yes please include me in the draw
    it seems this Nokia 7.1 is a good phone my next phone will be a Nokia im sure

  11. Ive always been a loyal fan/customer of Nokia, my first Nokia, was a 2280!! Nokia as far as I’m concerned, are the best phones out!! So please include me in the draw, cheers

  12. I would love to win this phone for my soulmate who currently has an old version useless cheap phone. He spends large amounts of his time volunteering in or local community and often his older phone is out of range to pick up calls.

  13. Love to be included in the draw Bill. Would really like to say something positive about Chelsea FC but that maybe a step too far…

  14. I really don’t want this or any other new phone, Bill. I am good with what I have.

    The fewer things to charge, the better the life is!

  15. I really like the phones Nokia are producing. I contemplated getting the 7!
    Please enter me in the draw.

  16. Currently using a Samsung S7 which is great other than the Samsung add-ons to Android. Recent Nokia handsets that I have had include Lumia 520. 720, 800 and a 930 so my affiliation with Nokia is long and undistinguished. Nokia and Android One has got to be one of the better combos and will likely be my next handset purchase regardless so winning a 7.1 will hasten the process. 🙂

  17. Interested in what Nokia are doing with Android… please add me to the draw.

  18. Include me in this draw.. So far nokia android one is one of the mid range flagship phone and with a great specs.. More power to nokia god of durability..

  19. Hey Bill, I hope you are well my friend! I just wanted to say thank you for all the articles published…always a pleasure to read and you raise some interesting points to ponder regarding specific devices and wider industry issues. Please put me forward for the Nokia 7 prize draw…it would really mean a lot to be involved. Warmest wishes.

  20. Please include me in the draw, currently operating on an tired old Nexus 5 spare as my main phone died.

  21. Why do I want to win this truly awesome device, this Nokia 7.1?

    My Nexus 6 is getting a little long in the tooth.

    It started life with the softeness of a Marshmallow but was rapidly enhanced with Nougaty goodness. Unfortunately it is never going to hear the crispy sound of an Oreo. 🙁

    It has been with me through thick and thin. Through rain and shine.

    Although it fights gloriously on it must be said that it has come to the end of it’s short but fulfilled life having developed wrinkles of joy and sadness upon its screen.

    I will sadly miss my Nexus 6 but life must go on.

  22. I would love to be converted to a Nokia SmartPhone. This would be a fantastic upgrade from my 4 year old iPhone 6 which is slow and has been repaired twice already

  23. I would love to win one of these, have had a supermarket phone for five years 😁

  24. Include me in the draw please, preferably as the winning entry of course 😉

  25. Hoping this comment shows so I can be the 87th legitimate entry in the draw

  26. Gracious, I’ve been pimping the giveaway for over a week and I didn’t even read properly through to comment. Silly me.
    Of course I’d like to be entered. Hah.

  27. I want this phone as I’ll have any phone not made by a fruit company…easy to please

  28. Hi Bill, if love to go in the draw please. My 13yo just got her first phone and it’s a hand me down Motorola G2. Would love her too have better. Cheers

  29. Hi Bill. Please put me in the draw. I’m thinking of getting a Nokia 3.1 since it’s in my price range and Android one. A 7.1 would be yuge.

  30. My late Father in law always said Gordon Bennett, but Gordon couldn’t talk tech like Bill does and I don’t think he was a Chelsea man!
    Prior to my Motorola Car Phone and 12volt car battery to make it portable on site, My first pocketable phone back in late 80’s to 90’s was a Nokia so I’d like to be included in the draw please so I can experience Nokia once again but New Nokia.

  31. The Nokia Lumia 735 is still a beautiful phone but Microsoft are making me not be able to use it any more..

  32. I’m as keen as the proverbial mustard. Pop me in the prize draw please.

  33. Good luck everyone. Its no windows phone but a non bloated phone sounds good

  34. He announced the winners on his Twitter account.
    Its was Paul (3rd comment) and Tash (77th comment)
