    The One Plus idea of gaining attention is not eco friendly. Creative ideas are great, but this does not advance the technological industry nor the environment. You have lost the revenue from all of my peers and I.

    They are a disgrace to their motto of Never Settle. Agreeing to directly contribute to e waste creation is settling and agreeing to submit to consumerism. Directly purchasing the One is to choose, but agreeing to smash your own phone is to submit and settle.

    Emmanuel , Do you agree with with the creation of ewaste? I am not here to cause trouble nor discredit achievements of One Plus. I am simply trying to bring to light that we are in a society of users that are not aware of the impact caused by e waste. I love innovation and I am all for it. However please, please do not be adding to the e waste in the world. What will users do with the results of the "Smash the Past" contest? Are they to send it to your factories to properly dispose of the e waste or are we to leave it up to the users to decide the disposal of the waste? Please respond to the questions of the community.

    Your company motto is to Never Settle and also to listen and do what ever the community would like to see as long as its possible. Will you offer certified Green and Eco Friendly e waste services for selected winners to properly dispose of e waste if there is enough support of the request from the community?

    Just curious: did you realize that the 1+1 is a "no name cheap product" before or after you "got the most excited" about it? As far as I know, neither the price nor the maker of the phone has changed between the time of the announcement and the opening of the contest. Why would you get so excited in the first place if you aren't into "no name cheap products"?

    Look, I get it that your problem is that you can't order it right away. No instant gratification. Fine. But quit acting all butt hurt just because you can't have it right away/

    Ha. I thought you made this thread because you were disappointed in the 1+1. Now you say you did it so you can be entertained by 1+1 fanboys. Well, whatever you say. Speaking for myself, I can think of a ton of better ways to entertain myself than whining in a forum - having a life, for one thing. Complaining in forums for entertainment... that's just sad.

    Oh god. First, I'm not signing up for the Smash the Past contest because (a) I like my Nexus 5 enough not to destroy it, and (b) I think the contest itself is a dumb publicity stunt. That being said, I am not going to get all high and mighty about it. 1+ provides instructions for proper electronics recycling and disposal, and participants would be wise to follow those instructions in order to minimize any environmental impact.

    yfan, are you aware that simply participating in the promotion will cause environmental harm?

    No it won't. Not when you consider what most people do with phones that get old and unusable anyway - throw them away without proper electronic disposal. You assume that all these devices that will be smashed in the contest would otherwise have been safely disposed. They wouldn't have been.

    Seems like there a few people who have already let it be known they're disillusioned with One+, brought their cash elsewhere but apparently will still hang around the forum to bash people for still wanting to wait to get the One+ One phone. Don't that beat all.
