If you’re still itching for a chance to pick up the OnePlus One, you — and about 2,500 others — now have your best chance yet. The startup announced an all new promotion via their Google+ page that, according to them, will rain a storm of invites upon lucky fans. Of course like most things OnePlus…. there’s a catch.

OnePlus One 64GB Sandstone Black

Really it’s not much. All you have to do is plug the company across a variety of social networks for a chance at winning one of the 2,500 invites being given out for the 64GB “Sandstone black” model. To make things interesting, 1 lucky participant will win a free OnePlus One 64GB completely free of charge. Here are a few of the “hoops” you’ll need to jump through (each one is worth 1 entry), but it’s up to you to decide if they’re worth it for an invite:

  • Like OnePlus on Facebook
  • Join the OnePlus mailing list
  • Tweet about the “giveaway” on Twitter
  • Follow OnePlus on Instagram
  • Write a message on the OnePlus forums

With already 126,000+ entries, your chances of winning an invite aren’t exactly in your favor. Here’s to hoping they’ll soon open the flood gates and finally give everyone who wants to purchase the Cyanogen phone a chance at owning one before things turn sour.

HTC is giving away a limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. One M8, all you gotta do is take a #superselfie http://phandroid.com/2014/05/06/limited-edition-shield-htc-one-m8-contest/ http://phandroid.com/2014/05/06/limited-edition-shield-htc-one-m8-contest/#comments Tue, 06 May 2014 19:22:10 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=140030 HTC One M8 SHIELD edition contest

Captain America: The Winter Solider hit theaters last month to warm reviews (we loved it). While we wont spoil any plot lines, eagle-eyed Android fans may have caught some subtle product placement in the film by way of the original HTC One making a cameo as Nick Fury’s smartphone of choice (Hydra was partial to the HTC One X+).

Taking that Marvel endorsement deal and running with it, HTC is now throwing a giveaway on both Twitter and Facebook which sees a 14 lucky winners receiving a special limited edition S.H.I.E.L.D. HTC One M8. To enter, all you gotta do is a take a selfie in your best Captain America-inspired getup and post it to Twitter along with the hashtag #superselfie. Those of you with a Facebook account can also get in on the fun, posting your pictures to their promotion post here.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. edition HTC One M8 is pretty much the standard gunmetal grey model, only with a numbered S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on the back. Subtle, but cool enough that Marvel fans can appreciate the reference. The promotion officially ends on Thursday, May 15h and you can enter once per-day — just don’t go recycling the same selfie over and over. For official rules, head here. After entrants have been selected, the full list of winners will be publicly posted here. Good luck!

OnePlus One ‘Smash the Past” contest sees hopefuls smashing their phones prematurely http://phandroid.com/2014/04/24/oneplus-one-smash-the-past-contest-premature-smashings/ http://phandroid.com/2014/04/24/oneplus-one-smash-the-past-contest-premature-smashings/#comments Thu, 24 Apr 2014 23:38:14 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=139221 Smash the Past landing page

You gotta give it to OnePlus. For being a newcomer to the industry, they’ve managed to make quite a name for themselves and it didn’t even take spending a sh*t ton of money to do it. There’s no question they’re offering a compelling product with the OnePlus One, undercutting the big dogs and still offering a phone with more bang for the buck. But it’s OnePlus’ grassroots marketing techniques that are raising eyebrows for some.

Take their “Smash the Past” contest for instance. The promotion — which doesn’t officially kick off for another 12 more hours — offers the upcoming OnePlus One smartphone at an extremely discounted price of only $1. The catch? You’ll have to smash your old smartphone to get it.

As we told you guys yesterday, you’ll first have to sign up for the chance to be randomly selected. Once chosen, you’ll then have the opportunity to prove your love for the OnePlus One by destroying your old smartphone via whatever means necessary. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re already seeing a few OnePlus One hopefuls jump the gun, smashing their smartphones without first reading the entry rules. It’s painful to watch, but you’ll find video proof below.

Again, you’re supposed to sign up for an invite first, then smash your phone — not the other way around. Now, we’re sure a few of the people in these videos didn’t damage their primary phone, probably some dusty old ones they had laying around the house. That still doesn’t make it any less painful.

And before you run over to their channels and leave them all kinds of nasty insults (seriously, don’t do that), we think OnePlus could have exercised a teensy bit more caution when advertising a promotion like this. We’re still waiting around for full entry rules which, according to the Smash the Past landing page, says will be revealed in 12 hours time. In the meantime, hang on before putting those old phones on the chopping block. Those looking to participate, you can sign up for the Smash the Past contest via the link below.

HTC One 2014 headed to Verizon and AT&T, contest and marketing materials hint at same-day release http://phandroid.com/2014/03/21/htc-one-2014-verizon-att-contest-leaks/ http://phandroid.com/2014/03/21/htc-one-2014-verizon-att-contest-leaks/#comments Fri, 21 Mar 2014 23:54:48 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=136235 HTC M8 One flip cover leak

The race is on to see which smartphone manufacturer will be the first to release this year’s flagship. We already told you guys about the Samsung Galaxy S5 pre-orders opening up for AT&T, with T-Mobile’s opening on Monday. Although the all new HTC One 2014 isn’t officially scheduled to be unveiled until Tuesday, March 25th, it looks like we might see the device launch much sooner than we originally thought.

We were left scratching our heads as to why HTC would wait so long into the month of March to announce their HTC One followup. With all the leaks from signage to brochures, we were wondering what exactly could be the hold up. Well, it appears that, similar to its launch in London, HTC could be planning on making the device available the same day as its March 25th unveiling. Why do we think that?

AT&T Share the secret HTC One 2014

AT&T has just begun officially teasing the launch of “an amazing new HTC device,” with a nondescript image of the HTC One 2014 we’ve seen leaked countless times (minus the front facing camera, light sensor). According to the promo, AT&T will be giving away 1 of these new HTC devices (valued at $639.99), every day until March 25th — starting today. All you have to do is enter in your email, and you’ll be entered to win. There’s also the option of posting AT&T’s “secret” on Twitter or Facebook for additional entries. That contest end-time has us wondering if that will be the day the HTC One 2014 will be officially available in stores.

Verizon HTC One 2014 promo box

Earlier this week we saw some marketing materials already make their way to Verizon retail stores, cluing us in on its imminent release. Today, we’re getting a look at some additional signage, this time in a leaked promo box showing a date peeking through the HTC One’s upcoming Lite Brite flip cover. It reads, “Get ready to hit refresh, 3.25 at 1PM ET.” According the leaker, a demo unit is also said to be arriving.

HTC One 2014 Verizon pricing

Pricing and color options for the Verizon Wireless HTC One 2014 were also confirmed from the in-store computer system. Expect the phone to run $200 with a 2-year agreement ($600 full retail) and be available in Amber Gold, Glacier Silver, and Metal Grey (black). Once again, no release date was given, leaving us to wonder if the promo box could, in fact, be hinting at a same-day release.

 

Thanks, Captain_D!

HTC wants to replace your bad gifts with a shiny new HTC One http://phandroid.com/2013/12/19/htc-contest-bad-gift-replacement/ http://phandroid.com/2013/12/19/htc-contest-bad-gift-replacement/#comments Fri, 20 Dec 2013 03:26:17 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=131164 ReplaceMyGiftHero_Blog

It’s happens every year. No matter how good your friend’s or family’s intentions are during the holidays, you always seem to end up with that single “off” gift. Whether it’s a dancing snowman, or reindeer boxer briefs, HTC’s got your back.

The smartphone manufacturer is currently throwing a contest where willing participants have the opportunity of swapping their “bad” gifts for something… better. How does a shiny new HTC One sound? That’s what we thought.

To enter, all HTC wants you to do is snap a picture of your bad gift Instagram with the hashtag #replacemygift. Don’t forget to follow and tag @HTC in the photo’s description, along with the a description of what makes the gift so terrible. Where this seems like an easy opportunity to bash another manufacturer’s products, HTC makes it clear they don’t want pictures of brands or rival manufactures pictured. Good fun, and all that.

Those with the most creative or fun pics will find themselves with a brand new HTC One, as announced on the official HTC blog. For the complete set of rules, you’re going to want to head on over to their official rules and regulations list. Don’t worry, it’s pretty straight forward. Good luck!

Here is the post you’ve been waiting for.

Photoshop Contest Winner

The Photoshop Contest was the most entertaining and our random winner came from these 3 gems:

glass-photoshop-terminator glass-photoshop-rickroll glass-photoshop-zack-morris

The Terminator makes you smirk after a quick second of thinking about it, the Rick Astley Rick Roll Glass is absolutely genius, and the Zack Morris Google Glass is absolutely hilarious. Our random number generator selected Rick Astley’s Google Glass as the winner- from AF member “maped” – although we would have been perfectly happy with ANY of these as winners. Awesome stuff!

There were some other great Glass Photoshops, too, which you can find at the bottom of this article. But first let’s share our other winners.

Developer Appreciation Contest Winner: Andrew McSherry

The Last Glass Invite: Android Forums Staff Appreciation http://phandroid.com/2013/11/08/glass-contest-day9/ http://phandroid.com/2013/11/08/glass-contest-day9/#comments Sat, 09 Nov 2013 00:24:48 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=129097 jhawkkAnd then there was one. The last Google Glass invite we have to give away is going to a somewhat randomly selected Android Forums member.

If you haven’t joined Android Forumsyou should. It’s an amazing resource and an amazing community. It allows people with similar devices, issues, problems, ideas, and interests to share tips & tricks, offer support, and help everyone get the most out of their Android device. But Android Forums wouldn’t be possible without staff and an amazing cast of loyal members.

(Check out our Nexus 5 Forums)

We reserved this last Google Glass invite to one member who expressed immediate interest in buying the device and using their experience to help other Google Glass Explorers on Android Forums. The last Google Glass invite goes to jhawkk who has racked up an astounding 7,900+ posts and has been “thanked” an outrageous 2,400+ times.

Jhawkk is a prime example of the type of people that make Android Forums so awesome. We don’t have unlimited invites to share, but wanted to take the opportunity to symbolically thank all of Android Forums staff and premium members and loyal members for contributing to the site. There’s a good chance a few more invites will be thrown that direction depending on a few winners we’re still waiting to hear back from.

Here was the recap of our 9 day Google Glass Invite contest…

CONTEST: Google Glass for one lucky Android Developer! [DAY 6] http://phandroid.com/2013/11/05/glass-contest-day6/ http://phandroid.com/2013/11/05/glass-contest-day6/#comments Wed, 06 Nov 2013 04:59:56 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=128887 android-codeDevelopers, developers, developers. They’re what makes the technology world go ’round and they’re what’s made Android the most fantastic mobile operating system on the planet. Without the amazing developer community – from indie devs plucking away keys in their basement to the devs at startups and newly enshrined fortune 500 companies writing line after line in the valley – Android would be nothing without them. And let’s not forget the amazing rooting and modding community.

This next Google Glass invite goes to one of these developers. If you’re one of them, thanks for everything you’ve done! We know that only one developer will be rewarded with a Glass Invite but we hope in some small way this illustrates our appreciation to the development community. And if you have a particular fondness for a developer, feel free to nominate them in the comments. It’s really easy.

And oh yeah… keep in mind our Photoshop Contest is still open!

Day 6 Contest: Developer Appreciation!

  • Enter yourself or nominate an Android developer by commenting on this article with a link to one of their apps in the Google Play Store
  • Tell the Phandroid community why you’re entering and/or nominating another developer. Do you love their app or game? How do they help push the Android community forward?
  • Entries will be accepted until November 6th, 2013 at 11:59pm Eastern
