A free OnePlus 2 could be yours if you donate one of four Samsung Galaxy handsets

29

Billed as a contest by OnePlus, the company is offering 50 people (selected at random) the opportunity to "donate" a Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ or Samsung Galaxy Note5, and receive back a new OnePlus 2 handset. The phones received by OnePlus will be given to Hope Phones, an organization that hands out medical technology products to those in need.

OnePlus hasn't had a great track record when it comes to contests. Last year, some participants accused OnePlus of changing the rules in the middle of a contest, preventing them from receiving a free phone that they should have won. In all fairness, OnePlus did go back and award free phones to the rightful winners. In another contest, OnePlus wasn't clear with the rules, resulting in some smartphone owners destroying their current handsets for nothing. And one other contest that asked ladies only to draw the OnePlus logo anywhere (including on parts of their bodies), was considered sexist and was pulled.

The new contest also has its share of issues. OnePlus might find it hard to find 50 people willing to swap an expensive model like the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy Note5, for a OnePlus 2. The four eligible Samsung handsets are valued at nearly twice the price of the OnePlus handset in the marketplace. And limiting the swap to Samsung handsets is certainly limiting the "contest" from a marketing standpoint.

OnePlus has cleverly named this the #Take the Edge Off contest. To enter, click on the sourcelink, fill out the form, and if you have been selected, you will be contacted by a OnePlus representative. You have until October 18th to submit your entry.
