Win Four Nexus 4 in Four Weeks #4

You remember: To celebrate the relaunch of our official Google+ Page we decided to do you (and us) some good. We decided you should be able to win a high-grade smartphone, while we hoped to strengthen and extend our followership over at G+: a classical win-win situation for the two of us. Last weeks winner has been drawn, so let's go for the last of four N4. Conditions of partaking are even easier to meet, so read on and secure the last chance...


Nexus 4: The Stock Android Experience

We know you love the pure Android experience, if any. With iOS 7 resembling Android more than ever, what holds you away from turning your back on the walled gardens of Cupertino? Even in the year 2013 does Apple not offer you the possibility to install your custom keyboard with multiple language support, to use homescreen widgets or to use system wide sharing to any app installed. I made the switch in 2011 already and have not looked back since. Then, in March 2013, i switched again, to a Nexus 4 with Stock Android, the greatest phone I ever had..


What you are able to win today, is just that, a brand-new Nexus 4 with 16 GB of storage space. If Google makes the white models available during the course of our raffle, we will leave you the choice which color model you'd like to receive in case you win.

Nexus 4: Last Week's Winner

Last week's raffle saw roughly 600 participants with all answers given correctly. Another 100 didn't manage to answer all questions, while almost 80 did fall from the draw, because they did not add a Google+ URL to their profile. From those who answered all questions correctly, only half bothered to add Noupe to their circles, an even lesser number shared the game with their own circles. From almost 700 participants only around 100 secured their chance to be part of the draw. This heightens the chances for these 100 by the factor 7. Strongest participation by countries was (in this order) from Germany, US and India, where Germany saw almost twice as much participants as places 2 and 3 together. Let's see what we got:

Our own editorial magic fairy flourished her wand and conjured up this winner:

Christian F. from Munich, Germany

Congrats, you should receive an email shortly! Read on, if you are not last week's lucky winner...

Nexus 4: How To Win One

Each Monday from the 24th of June on for four weeks, you have the chance to win one Nexus 4 16GB. We'll ship that to you, wherever you happen to be located. We cannot guarantee that the device will function in every corner of the world though. What we will equip you with is an unlocked official Google LG Nexus 4, so there's no limitations from our side.


Securing your chance to win is easy, yet comes tied to a condition. You'll need an account over at Google+ to partake. If you don't have one yet, you can easily change that here. Google+ developed to become the platform to go to when it comes to valuable discussions on technical topics. Their focus on presenting creative pieces is outstanding and if you, as a creative worker, don't own an account yet, you should in any case consider opening one, even apart from this raffle.

If you own an account, this is how to participate: Simply leave a comment below.

Additionally, we need a functional email address to be able to contact you in case you win, so don't go for one of these throw-away-mail-services. In the form field Website enter the link to your G+ account. The last step is, if not already done, adding Noupe Magazine to your circles and sharing the game with your own circles. That's it! Remarkably lower preconditions than in the weeks before...

The raffle starts immediately and runs until Friday, 19th of July, 6 PM CEST. The winner will be announced via Google+ and in the comments below. Good luck!

  10. I would love a Nexus 4. I have been a Google fan since it’s beginning. I use nothing but Google for email, search and now Android smartphone. Currently own a HTC Ego 3d 4g. I plan to upgrade my tablet to a Nexus waiting to see what the new one will offer.

  11. Hi,

    Since I’ve discovered this magazine, I’ve many of the article really interesting. Heck, this is magazine has such good standards I’m probably going to recommend this to my friends if they are looking at expanding their tools for web design.


  12. It would be really nice if I would win :)
    I love the Nexus 4. I think it is one of the best middle price smartphones.

  13. Vielen Dank für die vielen Informationen auf Dr. Web, hier auf Noupe bin leider recht selten und da muss mir immer ein Übersetzungsprogramm helfen, es ist oft etwas holprig aber das wichtigste kann man auch so herauslesen.

    Danke für die viele Arbeit und die vielen informativen Beiträge.

  14. This would be a perfect replacement for my two year old Motorola Defy. Should also help in my android development efforts! Thank you so much guys for this wonderful opportunity :)

  15. Let’s try this again. As a typical German I have to leave this comment: “I have never won anything” :-)

  16. I have fulfilled all the requirements. I am on a CDMA network, with a GNexus, so a N4 would be more of a useful tool. I love Android and would do a victory dance if I won the best smartphone ever. :)

  17. Very nice that we can win this great Phone :-D I badly need one, myn old android have a cracked screen.

  18. Please… let me have this one!!!
    It’s either that or getting stuck using a crappy Nokia with WP8…

  19. Yes please – the ideal partner to my Nexus 7.

    (double post as I forgot to put my Google+ link)

  20. It’s better late than never.

    I hope I win. I want to experience the what they called “TRUE GOOGLE Experience w/ NEXUS 4”.

    KUDOS to Noupe!!!

    MABUHAY KA!!! :)

  21. Would be awesome to win one. Right now I’m stuck with an old HTC Wildfire S, and currently can’t afford a new device. :)

  22. Would love to have this masterpiece in my hand

  23. Considering my SG3 recently broke and im using my old HTC evo…i could really use this nexus…plus it would give me yet another reason to make fun of iPhone users!!

  24. I hope I get it, It’s a fantastic phone given away by a fantastic blog

    Good luck everyone !!

  25. I really like Nexus 4! Hope I win this time :)
    PS: Why I don’t see the G+ share button at the end of the post? :)
    Good luck!

  26. Looking to make the swtich to Android. Winning a Nexus 4 would definitely make the switch easier!

  27. This is a really awesome thing you guys are doing. I have a google nexus and I really like but I heard nexus4 has some really awesome features. It would be nice to win.

  28. i would really like to win it,and these are my reasons are
    1=i am a big fan of google plus and the google staff
    2=i am running an android phone running on 2.1
    3=as a zambian its hard to use google plus,if i do win it will be a big boost to my fellows
    4=and finally i have never won any thing in year please help break this ginx!!
    yours zuze

  29. Hi! Would love to become the first Pakistani to win such a competition, In fact I have a Huawei G510, a sluggish Chinese phone and would love to upgrade to “pure Google Goodness” That’s all I have to say.
    (forgot to put my Google+ link in the first post, I apologize for that)

    With love from Pakistan,

  30. Hey Dieter, it’s great. Thank you for informing us and keep on updating us.
    Hope the NEXUS will go in the Right Hand. :)
    Good Luck all and yea, me too :D

    Thanks Bro!

  31. As my trusty old SGS(1) getting old and slow, I’d very much like to have one of these beauties.

  32. playing ingress for long time and my phone is having a very hard time with it and getting heavier with every version.

  33. Hi there. We decided to delete comments without Google Plus accounts immediately from now on, so we don’t have to later. I just axed 50+ comments. So if you don’t see your comment here, you did not add your G+ URL to it.

  34. Oh winning this one (at least) would be like Christmas, Chanukah, Easter etc. plus 30th birthday alltogether, I would be deeeelighted!

  35. I’m already using every single Google online product and it’s just about time to upgrade my ancient iOS device. A new android device, say Nexus 4, would fit perfectly. My wallet would be thankful, and as for me, I’m already thankful for articles on your web site.

  36. I’m an Apple worshiper but I’m ready to switch to Android now. Android devices are more easy to operate. Please make me a Nexus owner. It’s a cool device. I’ve read about it over and over On the Internet but I’ve never owned one

  37. Really been enjoying these contests, I’ve learned more about Noupe and been able to share it with several graphic and web design friends to help them with their businesses.

  38. I would love to get my hands on a nexus 4 my wife’s phone is about to kick the bucket.

  39. I saw the contest four weeks back on G+. But because of some reasons i could not managed to participate in 2nd and 3rd week contest. Although i took part in the 1st week. I just love N4 and i was amazed when i saw this type of simple and straightforward contest in which you have to do nothing but just to answers some questions and with such a big prize on stake.
    Now I wonder if there will be my name in the winners list this last time or not but i really want to win this one.
    Hope for the best.
    Fingers crossed!!!

  40. Proud and satisfied owner of Galaxy Nexus, so the chance for the upgrade is more then welcome! ;);)

  41. For what its worth, I recently broke the screen of my Galaxy Nexus while walking to class this May. 1/3 of the screen is dead so I’ve relied on portable hotspot and my 2nd-gen iPod Touch as a fix until I can afford another phone after paying tuition. So yeah, I’d be nice to win a Nexus 4 =\

  42. Really looking forward to last week of the giveaway. I was also wondering why so many comments, turns out there’s no questions this time. I like it! :D

  43. I’d loooove to win

  44. Sure a Nexus 4 can provide me an additional channel to see all interesting topics on Google+ and Noupe.

  45. Noupe is really curious side of web.I have following Noupe and it is really good to see nice stuff on their website.
    I like this contest as it is for both user & noupe.
    Thanks for such kind of contest and contents on your mag.

  46. Only stumbled upon Noupe a few weeks ago, but have found the website full of fantastic ideas. Thanks for the great magazine.

  47. can I replace my previous comment with this one? I totally forgot to copy my Google+ stuff into the website box. oopsie! lol! oh! Hi everyone! :-)

  48. This giveaway has been really great by you guys. I haven’t seen “social marketing” in quite this way before. Good way to get people looking at and familiar with your site. Also, the phone is fantastic. Keep up the good work Noupe.

  49. Love me some Nexus, though I do think about arriving at Luclin every time I hear the name…

  50. I welcome such games and want to admit that I really dig the design of your website!

  51. Winning would be so awesome, i can use it to create a photosphere of my new office, my new son being born soon, and my new before and after pics from a healthier lifestyle

  52. My old Droid phone barely charges anymore, and I’m months away from an upgrade. This would be a nice prize. Thanks for the contest and opportunity! Good luck all!

  53. Please Noupe. I want to record a video of me crashing my Motorola MB632 into the wall. Make me win this jewel !!

  54. I need a new phone. Am currently using a HTC Amaze. Had it for a year now. Great phone but it has starting to show it’s age.

  55. Just in time for a worthed reading, just in time to upgrade my Android Phone. Come nexus come :)

  56. A Nexus 4 would go so nicely with my Nexus 7 and let me recycle my tired old galaxy ace.

  57. Good luck to everyone!
    And thanks for this really cool givaway!!!

    Perhaps I’ll get the last one, would be really great for me as student.

  58. Can I have that one? I’m poor.. if I win this nexus 4 I will never forget you god bless

  59. I really appreciate it noupe. I don’t have smartphone please let me have a nexus 4 god bless u

  60. Always wanted a Nexus phone, but they never came out at the right time when I was switching phones – hopefully now’s the time! Great thing you guys are doing for the community, here :)

  61. It’s great that you are giving out the “NEXUS”…

    I’m going to share it on my facebook also.

  62. I have already set my mind free with my Nexus 4… want another one to present to my wifey :-)

  64. I would love a Nexus 4! Also, I really want to try the walmart service so I can finally end my verizon contract!
    Please let me win!

  65. Hello Team Noupe,

    This sounds very tempting to me to win a Nexus 4 as I can then get my hands on the latest Android release unlike my HTC One S which was declared outdated by HTC recently. :/
    I really wish to switch over from my HTC one S. Keeping my FINGERS CROSSED.
    I need a NOUPE(hone)!!! I hope i win! :D

  66. woww..been dreaming bout this beast..need to save some more money to buy this..
    i just wish i can win.. :fingercrossed:

  67. Had an HTC, Samsung, now interested in trying out a Google phone; see what it has to offer.

  68. The Nexus 4 is a thing of beauty and would look very good in my hand. I pray to the Android gods in the Google universe to bestow upon me a Nexus 4. Peace

  69. I really love the Nexus line and I can’t afford one right now thanks guys for the chance on winning one of these

  70. Seeing that I just broke the screen on my Gnex it would be dope to win a Nexus 4. I’m in.

  71. I really love the Nexus line and I can’t afford one right now thanks guys for the chance on winning one of these!!!!

  72. Oh I absolutely love this phone, even though the HTC one and GS4 are out, this phone just is still so much better than those two non nexus phones

  73. Thanks Noupe for getting the change of winning a A N4 ! And if not, getting here really useful information :-)

  74. I don’t mean to overemphasize my need for this phone, but I have an archaic LG G2x sporting a self-growing extended battery I bought off of Amazon. Just picture that.

  75. I’ve got a Nexus 4…simply the best phone I’ve ever had. Ditched my iPhone and no regrets.

  76. Just now going through you magazine. It is really interesting. I will certainly check your G+ updates.. Good luck.

  77. Would love to be the Nexus one to win one. Don’t win compo’s but if I did this’d be my dream phone. One I can use to show my partner how much better Android is than her iPhone 5!

    Thanks Steve

  78. Hey, I’m starting school in a couple of week. I could use a new phone. Mine’s more than 3 years old.

  79. :)
    I am currently with cricKet using a Nexus S 4G, however 4G does not work on my re-flashed device on the network :(
    I’ve been ready to leave for a while now and have a decent amount saved for a killer Android™ device … just torn between this and the MotoX.

  80. I would love to get my hands on one, my girlfriend’s phone is horribly in need of an upgrade and her birthday is coming up… We could have Nexus twins! :D

  81. I really hope I win! I just dropped my phone and it broke! I need a new one. :D Perfect chance!!!!

  82. I would love to have the delicious stock Android experience on a phone I’ve only dreamed of seeing in person!

  83. I been using my HTC S for last 2 years but sad part screen is broken and other HTC phones are expensive so I am staying with my Fast HTC :-D Have used Nexus 4 @ my work for testing and loved it. Will be happy to replace my Htc one with new nexus 4.

    Here’s the link to my G+ profile (Dont forget to check it out)

  84. Lovely competition, especially good for people like me who has had their phone broken by no fault of their own but can’t afford to replace it!
