How To Buy OnePlus One

If you buy through a BGR link, we may earn an affiliate commission, helping support our expert product labs.

Among Android enthusiasts, the OnePlus One is easily the most desirable new smartphone of 2014 so far. It doesn’t have the 2K display from LG’s G3, the gorgeous metal build from the HTC One (M8) or the massive marketing budget backing Samsung’s Galaxy S5, but it’s a cutting edge smartphone powered by the highly hackable CyanogenMod software. What’s more, it’s shockingly affordable.

The only problem, of course, is that it’s still almost impossible to buy one. But thankfully, OnePlus just gave hopeful prospective One owners their best chance yet to get their hands on one.

“To celebrate the announcement of our Bamboo StyleSwap Cover, we are giving away 5,000 invites to those who haven’t received invites thus far,” OnePlus said in a new post on its forum. “So even if you heard about us recently/you joined the forums recently, you have a chance to win. Additionally, 10 lucky fans from the 5,000 winners will receive a free Bamboo StyleSwap Cover when they are available.

Here are the company’s instructions to secure an invitation:

  1. Go to the contest page: or
  2. Log in with your email or Facebook account.
  3. Perform at least one of the listed actions before the deadline.

Entries will be accepted until 9:15 a.m. today, so you’d better move quickly if you want a chance to buy this great phone.
