Engadget UK giveaway: win a Galaxy Note 5 courtesy of Bitdefender


Samung's Galaxy Note 5 isn't officially available in the UK -- not yet, anyway -- but nonetheless, we've got a cheeky import to send the way of one lucky reader this week. The 32GB, Black Sapphire model comes courtesy of our friends at Bitdefender, who are celebrating the recent launch of their new Mobile Security and Antivirus suite for Android. The app uses Bitdefender's constantly updated, cloud-based antivirus services to keep your device malware-free, and allows you lock individual apps with passcodes for an extra layer of protection from idle hands. Alongside several anti-theft tools, the app also offers secure web browsing, a breakdown of app permissions that may be cause for concern, and Android Wear integration that alerts your smartwatch when you stray an uncomfortable distance from your phone. And whoever wins the Galaxy Note 5 this week will also get a full year's subscription to Bitdefender Mobile Security and Antivirus for free. As always, you can enter the competition up to three times via the Rafflecopter widget below, though we'd ask you give the rules a quick once-over first.

Note that as the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920I) is an import, it's not designed specifically for the UK market. As such, while it supports all 2G/3G frequencies, it's not compatible with O2's 4G network. It will, however, work on at least some of the LTE bands used by all the other major UK carriers.

Winning: congrats to Geordie S. from Derbyshire.
