    @Pete @Carl @David S. don't you think its time to interact with us and put our concern to ease and tell why you were so misleading about the dimensions. Anything is better and just ignoring the problem. I thought you figured that out by now ( band 20, countdown contest,....)

    It was always only going to be open to the launch countries, that should have been obvious.

    Of course they only want you to smash a relatively recent flagship better advertising than having people smash ancient flip phones.

    The contest includes a waiver of liability so suing is iffy plus they're a Chinese company so there's a jurisdiction issue.

    @Carl, @David S. , @Emmanuel and OP just announce release information like you've done for China already.

    I have such a question: I am from a country wich not in the list of release countries, however I have friends for example in Finland (it is in the list). Can I take a part in this contest if I choose a delivery address somethere in Finland?

    No Hungary in the list and why on earth would i smash my 400-500-600 EUR device for getting an 300 EUR device?

    Hi Guy,
    I was waiting for this phone since a long time...
    Since two days, I was completely excited about those invites.
    They said, you will know everything the 23 April.
    Then, on the 23 April, the contest will start the 25 April, just enter your email address and you will maybe get one to smash your smartphone and get a oneplus one fit 1$.

    Finally, arrives that moment... and they says, after two days of horrible waiting (curiosity, I hate you!!!), that you can only take part to that if you have an new fresh smartphone and for that, you must wait more than a week encore...
    So, my question is ; how do you feel right now guys? Because I'm feeling bad to be treaty like a pigeon.

    I think I will show the last big "F U C K you" I have in reserve to that company =)

    Thanks you all guys. To people who will wait till the end for that phone, I want to say I understand because it's seems to be a really good phone and I wish them Good luck for the waiting! To the others, I want to say you're right to get out of here.

    Well if you want one "high-end" phone worth of 269€ for 1$ you can expect a high sacrifice as an addition. So okay its marketing and will surely get publicity, so just smash your working phone and not just a dummy or a broken phone in order to get your One+ it won't make you love your One+ more I guess if you don't take worth of your current phone.

    There were some entries in this forum, like the one who smashed his HTC One M7, which his mother worked hard for his son, in order to buy him his phone, that he just smashed before the contest even begin. Maybe try to get something back from the insurance with a fraud invoice?

    What shall I expect from the buyers of this phone? What brand position want One+ to gain from this? Who are the typical buyer of this brand/ phone? More importantly do I want to be one of them? The invitation system is already something like branding a special group of persons, that not everyone can enter.

    The important point, even though the specs are known, we still don't exactly know how the phone actually perform. Just because you know how high, flexible, good looking, powerful a person is, you still don't know if you like to work with him/her or the performance is.

    I was going to smash my Nexus 5, but I just realized that the One is too big. I'm already having trouble with the 5 on my hand. So #nothanks #imout #notworthit #meow

    This "contest" is going to be a PR nightmare. OnePlus did not think this through. Aside from the many dangers of smashing a live cellular phone, OnePlus "reserves the right to disqualify any video submission for any reason, in its sole and absolute discretion".

    There was no need to get cute with this promo. A standard 100 phone giveaway would better serve their marketing efforts.

    Inappropriate choice, what we don't need is even more pollution. Just get people to send their phone in and shame the other phone companies by making a welcoming mat out of it or something

    So curiously, I looked at the list of phones. Basically, they want you to smash your current flagship or close to it phone, which you can probably sell and be more environmentally responsible while accruing the funds necessary from the sale to actually buy a OnePlus in most cases.

    And all this for a 16GB OnePlus One.

    I'm sorry OnePlus but this is a big swing and a miss and the bat someone came around again and hit you in the face.
