    Hello Guys, we are nearing the closing of our application (June 6th), send in your entry if you have not done so.

    As I was sorting out the applications, I noticed that on Question 18: "Please attach a link to access pictures/videos of your TV, showcasing its best features." Some of the entries had a restricted link, and we could not access these photos/videos. I updated the question on Forms, and we will reach out to users that entered a restricted link.

    Reach out to me upon further questions or concerns.

    Hi friends,

    Thanks to everyone for their participation in The Lab — OnePlus TV U1S Edition. By June 6th, we had received 541 applications ( The application was a challenging one; averaging at about 25mins per entry, props to every candidate). Even though it was our very first non-phone segment of The Lab, we are happy to see many outstanding entries vying for a spot. It is the enthusiasm and talent that lives in our Community that makes The Lab so remarkable and special!

    Also a special thanks to our beloved mods, TV expert @Venky61, Writers' Club, and Community Ambassadors. With their support we have finally picked the top 3 entries to join the reviewer squad for The Lab — OnePlus TV U1S Edition:

    Congratulations! We cannot wait to experience Smart Televisions from the lenses of the reviewer squad. The reviewers will receive different variants of the OnePlus TV U1S so that we have more diversity in our product reviews.

    This is amazing @Daniel D.
    Bringing LAB tradition to the TV segment. It isn't easy to review the TV covering all segments, gonna be a tough task. Fingers crossed. All the best to everyone. Jumping off to apply 😁
