    Hi friends,

    Today is Father's Day and in honor of fathers everywhere we want to give away the daddy of OnePlus smartphones, the one that started it all, the OnePlus One!

    For the chance to win, all you have to do is Like and Retweet the Father's Day post on our Twitter: https://twitter.com/oneplus/status/1274537526573719552

    If you win: use it, keep it as a memento, or give it to your dad! The choice is yours.

    As for the device, how does this sound?

    Sandstone Black
    64 GB Storage
    3 GB RAM
    OxygenOS 1.0.3

    Enough about the (impressive) specs. Let's focus on the emotional connection...

    I spoke to two OG OnePlus employees to get their feelings from around the time the OnePlus One launched. Here's what they told me:

    "It was like having a kid, our very first born product... haha. Now in all seriousness, what I remember is that we worked night and day for a few months ahead of the launch. It was very hard and there was a lot of uncertainity. It was our very first product, we didn't know if it was gonna work or flop but once we finished the keynote, almost immediately we realized that it was gonna be a hit. So I felt like a big weight was lifted from my shoulders and we had made the right choices over the past few months leading to the launch."
    --- David, Web Operations Director

    "It was a frenetic and exhilarating time fuelled by big dreams, small budgets and impossible deadlines; I was hiring, setting up websites and doing communications on top of my marketing duties. I still think the OnePlus One's sandstone finish is the best!"
    Mingyu, Security Engineer

    What are your thoughts and feelings from around that time? Share in the comments and let's get teary-eyed together. The videos below might help cast your mind back to 2014 :)

    And now onto the thankfully simple giveaway T&Cs:

    1. We had to do a lot of searching and asking around to get this device. This isn't a brand new OnePlus One, please bear in mind the device shows some wear and tear and we don't have the original box.
    2. There is no warranty or after sales service available for this device. It is fully operational but we count on your understanding that we can't offer assistance or repair it afterwards - it's about the sentimental value.
    3. Winner will be chosen at random and contacted on Friday via Twitter DM (6/26).
    4. Winner will be announced on Twitter on Monday (6/29).
