Engadget UK giveaway: win a Galaxy Note 4 courtesy of Bitdefender

Christmas is a time of giving, but let's be honest, being on the receiving end is so much better. Over the next few weeks, we're going to be running back-to-back giveaways as we approach the festive season -- and winners won't even need to wait until the 25th to start playing with their free toys. To kick things off, we've got a new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (octa-core Exynos variant) to gift to one lucky reader, thanks to the generosity of our friends at Bitdefender and their Mobile Security software for Android. For a modest subscription fee, the app will protect your device from malware, advise you when app permissions might be cause for concern, let you track and wipe your phone remotely if it's been pinched, and even keep your Android Wear smartwatch safe. If you don't know the drill already, UK residents can enter the giveaway up to three times via the Rafflecopter widget below. Before you start clicking away, though, give the rules a quick read, would ya?

Winning: congrats to Pete D. from Meifod, Wales!
