    Hey everyone,

    The Lab has become one of our most long-standing traditions. With every launch, we invite the Community’s best wordsmiths to review our latest device. This launch is no different, but we’re stirring things up a bit!

    Rather than selecting a small subset of users, this time everyone can enter The Lab! If you bought a OnePlus 7T Series device, you just have to submit your review for a chance to win an amazing prize!

    [HOW IT WORKS]
    • Create a thread in the User Reviews section with [The Lab] in the beginning of the title. (If your account is less than 15 days old, please create your thread on Starting Point. Our fellow moderators and Starting Point Experts will help you move it!)
    • In this thread, you’ll have to cover the following topics about your OnePlus 7T Series device (you can find some additional tips in the post below):
      • Unboxing & design
      • Display
      • Camera
      • Performance
      • Oxygen OS
    • Give us your honest opinion. We value it over blind praise.
    • The review content and structure are entirely is up to you, but we’ll value creativity, easy-to-read content, photo and/or video content and the overall quality of the thread. Bonus points if the community really likes your review.
    • Submit all content before the deadline.
    [TIMELINE - UPDATED!]
    • PHASE 1: For OnePlus 7T - From September 27, 2019 to October 31, 2019, 11:59PM ET. We will pick two winners during this period.
    • PHASE 2: For OnePlus 7T Pro - From October 17, 2019 to November 7, 2019, 11:59PM ET. We will pick two winners during this period.
    • PHASE 3: For OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition - From November 5, 2019 to November 25, 2019, 11:59PM ET. We will pick one winner during this period.

    • A full reimbursement for their purchase, or
    • A custom device with their name engraved.
    [TERMS & CONDITIONS]

    • As a reviewer, you agree to provide OnePlus with the free right to use and publish any production materials (video, pictures, articles, etc.) that are generated and submitted during the review period.
    • When you apply, your entry will be added automatically to an internal backup reviewer list. We reserve the right to contact backup reviewers for additional review purposes during the selection period.

    Here you can find some tips that may help improving your review (and your chances of winning!):
    • Keep it structured – A structured review is easier and therefore a more compelling reading. Different levels of headlines and text formatting do wonders.
    • An image is worth a thousand words – You still need to write your review but, by adding some pictures, GIFs or short videos, you not only make your review more interesting, but also are able to show things that would be hard to describe. This is particularly true for the Unboxing & Design part.
    • Proofreading is the key – By reading through your post before making your post live, you’ll be able to find typos and see if the overall text works. Asking for a friend’s opinion also does wonders.
    • Try to reply back – If someone replies to your thread, replying back can keep your thread active and visible. Just don’t entertain trolls if they decide to tease you, use the Report button instead.
    • Headers are cool! – By adding a header to your thread, experts say your thread automatically becomes 23.6% better! (they don’t, but trust me on this)

    What to cover:
    The topics are the ones that are defined above, but it’s up to you to decide what to talk about in each one. Below, you can find some tips on what to cover:
    • Unboxing & Design
      Unbox the package when you receive it, share with the Community your first impressions, the phone’s design and appearance details. Images are particularly important for this section.
    • Display
      Specs play a role in a review, but so do your impressions. Try conveying your thoughts on the 90 Hz refresh rate when compared to your previous devices.
    • Camera
      OnePlus 7T now has a triple-lens camera, covering a range of focal lengths to satisfy every need in different shooting scenes. Be sure to share your best photos!
    • Performance
      Fast and smooth is always what OnePlus is chasing for. You try your favorite games, multitasking or even benchmark apps. It’s up to you to find the best way to quantify performance!
    • Oxygen OS
      Our Operating System has become one of our hallmarks. Don’t forget to explore our many distinguishing features, like Game Space, Zen Mode or the new Android 10 features.
    Be sure to also check previous editions of The Lab to see great examples of reviews.

    In case a thread posted in phase one does not win, will or will it not be considered for phase 2?
