    I worked really hard to try and make a video that's fun to watch. Figured if I'm going to break a phone I should do it in style. Hope you guys like it:

    Disclaimer: I know that one plus has warned people not to destroy their phones without prior approval, but I'm hoping they'll reward the people willing to put themselves out there and show how much they want this phone.

    edit: after seeing the posts in this thread, I think I should clear some things up

    First, I didn't break my phone. I used a "stunt double" iphone screen and back case.


    By the way, it's fairly easy to key and add a fake screen in After Effects.

    Second, I have not broken any terms and conditions because the "contest" doesn't start until May 6 when the people who applied are notified.

    "Applications will be accepted from April 25th, 2014 to May 2nd, 2014. If accepted, the applicant will have four days to submit a video to the OnePlus team."

    Nice video, hope you'll get an OPO for that even though you weren't approved for the contest :)

    this is just plain silly, oneplus won't go around seeing who has already destroyed their past and give them an invite.

    great video but... maybe you forget to show your fully working iPhone 5... it could be a not working device and so you cannot partecipate to contest

    This video is obviously fake. Think about it, how did he film and timed/located the phone perfectly where he threw it?

    From their site:

    Want the One? Follow this 3 step process:

    1. Apply - Fill out the application form and send it in.

    2. Stand Out - We'll choose 100 applicants to be our smashers.

    3. Smash & Share - Share a video of your smash on YouTube and the OnePlus One will be yours!

    This was my attempt to stand out. If they care more about cutting/workingstate than the overall quality and message of the videos, then I don't want to stand for this company.

    I've said this more than once, stupidity should not be rewarded.

    Also, why should those who choose to break the rules (smashed your phone before being chosen and receiving the code, video not in one continuous shot etc.) be rewarded when there are plenty more here that are willing to put themselves out there that do follow the rules? SMH
