    Hey friends,

    A few weeks ago, we asked you to share your opinion on extending The Lab to non-OnePlus products through this User Survey, and we were overwhelmed with the positive feedback. Since then, I’ve been on an exciting journey to contact external brands and introduce The Lab spirit to them.

    Now, the very first The Lab² [read as "The Lab squared"] is here. We welcome you, our beloved and talented community users, to join The Lab², and be the first to go hands-on with a non-OnePlus product as part of this contest.

    Action Cameras ranked quite high up there in our user survey, so it only makes sense to start with one. Without further ado, let’s see what is in store for you!

    Product introduction – Insta360 GO 2; The World’s Smallest Action Camera

    If you are a tech enthusiast who has profound knowledge and passion for Action Camera and wants the world to hear your voice, please show us your excellent and unbiased reviewing skills.

    What's the process?

    Last but not least, we'd also like to thank Insta360 for graciously providing their action cameras for our users to review. We know it's a bit unorthodox for brands to collaborate in such a way (especially when there's no money involved), so we're grateful to see Insta360 taking the chance to do something different together with us and our users.

    Send your applications in and stand a chance to be one of our Insta360 Go 2 reviewers!

    Unfortunately tho, I don't get them. dsmonteiro was saying that you're going to be calling this Lab, “The Lab II - The Empire Strikes Back.” I wasn't thrilled to say the least.

    (I'm sure you know already) It's in reference to the second Star Wars movie to come out, which was actually the 5th story, but a great joke by DSM anyway :p
