OnePlus launches their "Smash the Past" contest: win one of the first 100 OnePlus One smart phonesLast week, OnePlus announced their "2014 Flagship Killer", which happens to be a very impressive Android smart phone. The One is marketed with the slogan, "Never Settle", and the company boasts that the OnePlus One will not only blow away the competition in terms of features, but price as well. The phone offers some very appealing specs, including a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 5.5" full HD touch screen display, 3GB of LP-DDR3 RAM, a Qualcomm Adreno 330 GPU, 4K video recording, and the most exciting feature for us, a Sony Exmor (IMX214) 13-megapixel camera with a f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash unit. All this is stuffed in a sleek magnesium body, which runs on CyanogenMod 11S, a version of Android's KitKat (4.4.2) OS.
Their "Smash the Past" contest is allowing 100 lucky winners to be amongst the first to receive this exciting new handset. How do you enter you ask? Well, you have to take a video of you smashing your current smartphone, and then submit it to oneplus.net/smash. They will then choose 100 of the "smashers", who will win the chance to buy a 16GB version of the OnePlus One smart phone for just $1. The rest of us will be able to purchase handsets at a later date, with the 16GB version running $299; while the 64GB will set you back only $349.
