    The final day of Insanity Week is in full force and so are us admins. If only Halloween was tonight. There would be no need for costumes because we all look like zombies right now. Even though it seems the last few days have been full of nothing but Insanity Week, we have some OnePlus news for you that may have slipped past the radar.


    Yesterday we hit an amazing new milestone of over 300,000 forum members! We send a heartfelt welcome to the newcomers. Our little community hardly seems little anymore, but getting to know new people is always a pleasure. We hope all members, recent and oldies, will continue to have an awesome time here swapping Android tips and chatting about teddy bear uprisings. This community will always be the core of OnePlus and it’s good to have you here.

    Monday we unveiled our surprise collaboration—the JBL E1+ Earphones. We’d love to hear your thoughts on what you think about the latest accessory and our partnership with legendary music giant JBL. In the future we hope to have the chance to work with many more distinguished brands who share our creative vision.

    On Tuesday three of our team members Miguel, Johanne, and Martin flew to San Francisco to meet some OnePlus fans. They had a great time speaking to you, answering your questions, and getting to see the beautiful city of San Francisco. Until Saturday (today!) they will be manning the OnePlus booth at the Big Android BBQ in Dallas. Make sure you drop by and say hi! Check out what they’ve been up to on Instagram.

    +Matt Coddington: "Five OnePlus One phones at one table!"

    How are you guys liking Insanity Week? Days 1-3 we gave a somewhat respectable number of Ones to some lucky fans, but we really brought the insanity to Day 4 by giving one phone every two hours. As for Day 5, this is when we put the insanity in #InsanityWeek. One phone given every 20 minutes for 24 hours. We have stayed awake all night in the office to choose each winner and announce them live. Thank you to everyone who participated this week! You are all a part of OnePlus history.

    Happy #InsanityWeek everybody!
    P.S. Our fans in India can now get the most up-to-date news about the upcoming launch on the official OnePlus India Facebook page.

    EDIT: The surprise was 10 phones in 10 minutes! Sorry for the confusion guys.

    Though quite a great job, kudos to the marketing team. A great stunt pulled off, you definitely got a chain started and I think the giants need a lesson or two from you guys.
