OnePlus created a contest that started today that gives 100 lucky people around the world the chance to be the first to own one of these beasts, but it comes at a cost of smashing your existing phone. The contest is aptly called “Smash your Phone” and gives eager early adopters the opportunity to submit their contact details for a potential invite. The terms and conditions states that if you are one of the 100 selected you must then submit a video showing how you’ve smashed your phone into oblivion. OnePlus suggests a “Destruction method” of a hammer, baseball bat, fire, screwdriver, blender.
This is open to Canadians, along with those located in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States. OnePlus will be notifying the winners via email on May 6th.
In addition, “The phone must suffer significant and visible damage to qualify for the OnePlus One purchase code. The applicant must show evidence of the damage in the video following the smash.”
