    The time has come for our craziest contest so far! Phone in a Box is kicking off.

    We are so extremely confident about the build quality and materials of our phone that we just couldn’t wait to give one of our most eager fans a sneak peek.

    In just a few short days, someone will be getting ready to fly out to Hong Kong to be the very first to experience the feel of the back of the OnePlus One!

    To enter, each user will need to submit a short video to Instagram (now also on YouTube!) with the hashtag #phoneinabox. All that you have to do is tell us how you feel towards OnePlus. OnePlus has garnered quite some attention in the tech community as of late, and we want to hear your most honest thoughts. Bring it on!

    How to Participate (and basic info):
    • Post one short video to Instagram or YouTube (max. 15 seconds) telling us your feelings about OnePlus Tech
      • For Instagram: The video must include the @oneplustech tag and #phoneinabox hashtag
      • For YouTube: title should include OnePlus' Phone In A Box Contest: in the title and the hashtag #phoneinabox in the description of the video (we will make a playlist with all of them!)
    • The contest will run from 9AM EST (2PM GMT+1) time on March 19th until 9AM EST (2PM GMT+1) on March 28th
    The winner will be chosen by the OnePlus staff based on originality (so, please, try to be creative).

    Grand Prize:
    • Be the first in the world to touch the hottest phone of 2014 and tell everyone about it
    • Free trip to Hong Kong including flight and accommodation
    • Meet the amazing team of awesome people that will disrupt the tech industry
    • Be the star of our next YouTube video
    • The winner of the big prize MUST have a valid passport and over 18
    Depending on where you are, you may be required to have a visa to visit Hong Kong. Please make sure to check in advance to ensure that you are able to accept if you win.

    We'll fly the winner out to Hong Kong and provide two nights accommodation, all to be the first person to touch the back of the OnePlus One! We know that's quite a long way for some of you, so we're happy to book flights for the dates of your choice, allowing you to stay a little longer or do some traveling around Asia. We just ask that you be able to arrive between the 4th and 11th of April.

    Participation Prize (everyone will get this!):

    What happens if you don't have a valid passport or you can't travel on those dates?

    You can still participate! Just make sure to add on your video description (both, for YouTube or Instagram) #ImInForTheGoodies hashtag and you'll receive one of our awesome swag-bundle, with one fantastic NeverSettle Fruit of the Loom cotton t-shirt, one travel mug and a pack of stickers!


    We will announce the grand winner on Monday, March 31st at 9AM EST.

    Good luck everyone :)
    I guess I have to register to Instagram now. Why cannot we post those videos just here?

    BTW. Czech Republic has 90 days visa free limit ;)


    My passport is also not valid anymore and have a new one takes about 30 days. I guess I am also out :(


    So I've found out that the "quick passport" should be enough to visit Hong Kong :)
