OnePlus One Contest

The OnePlus One might not have the best smartphone name you’ve ever seen, but just about everything else about it is tremendously appealing — especially if you’re a hardcore Android fan. The handset runs a heavily customized version of Android known as CyanogenMod, and it’s just begging to be hacked to your heart’s content. It also features a sleek design, surprisingly solid specs and an off-contract price that starts at just $299.

The problem, of course, is that it’s incredibly difficult to purchase a OnePlus One because the phone is in such high demand. Now, however, OnePlus is giving Android fans 10,000 more chances to buy a One.

“Bummed that summer is almost over? Reminiscing about all the good times in the past three months? We have just the thing to cheer you up: The Summer Shots Contest!” OnePlus wrote in a post on its forum. “We are inviting all OnePlus fans to share a photo from their summer holidays for a chance to win 1 of 10,000 invites. No, that’s not a typo – 10,000 invites. Excited now? But there’s more; 100 lucky fans will also receive a vintage Never Settle t-shirt in addition to an invite. So if you haven’t already, go out and snap a photo!”

Here is everything you need to know about the new contest:
