OnePlus One contest winners can choose to donate their old phone

Tags: OnePlus, Android

OnePlus has made some changes to its 'Smash the Past' contest, where 100 lucky winners from more than 140,000 applicants were previously required to smash their current phone for a brand new OnePlus One at $1.



According to the new rules, the winners can now instead choose to donate the phone. The phones will be donated to Medic Mobile, which is a non-profit organization that recycles old phones for use by healthcare workers in remote areas of the world.

This is a far more sensible option than just smashing and wasting a good device. Not only the phone is not being wasted, someone somewhere will actually benefit from it.
