    Outstanding move to recognize that the community disagreed with the lack of recycling/donation. My hat is off to you for listening on this matter.

    Recycling is probably the safest way (not just for the environment but for the people actually smashing their phones) as I think we've all seen the Galaxy S5 smashing video and I know for sure as hell I wouldn't have wanted that to happen to me.

    Even though my method of using a bow and arrows to obliterate my phone would be fun, if I get chosen I would certainly want to recycle it, much better use for some great (still relatively new) tech :)

    Well done 1+. Let's hope the donation scheme is popular, can't say I was a fan of smashing perfectly good technology when so many people are without such luxury items. Good luck everyone who entered, I have a nexus 4 so will wait on the invites to purchase my 64gb phone.

    called it:
    my theory is that its a good idea if they don't actually smash any phones in the end. they announce the plan, get tons of publicity (good and bad, but its all publicity), then in the zero hour they announce that they don't actually intend to literally smash the phones, they do somehow do it symbolically.
    then they get the hype and publicity, but no backlash for putting people at risk or hurting the environment...

    really good job guys. donating is much better choice. lets hope all the 100 decides to donate rather than smashing. i feel sorry for the idiots who wasted money when they can used that for a good cause

    At least they are providing an alternative to smashing the phones and hopefully everyone donates. Anyways hope to see invites start flowing through the forums so we can all get one asap!

    I could've destroyed mine using a heatgun that goes up to 800 degrees, too bad I don't have anything even comparable to a flagship heh

    You have shown that you listen to everyone and that you take decisions thinking about your consumers...

    Oh yes I started to have second thoughts about the smashing game.. Donating it sounds a lot better to me! Hope I'll have the opportunity!
