OnePlus will swap your Samsung Galaxy for a OnePlus 2
Still struggling to get your hands on the OnePlus 2? There is one way you can avoid the dreaded invite system, but it means giving up your brand new Samsung Galaxy.
OnePlus is giving up to 50 people the opportunity to swap their existing Samsung smartphone for a OnePlus 2. The good news is, doing so lets you avoid the invite system and obtain the company’s latest smartphone much faster. But there’s bad news, too.
You can’t just swap any old Samsung Galaxy smartphone; you’ll need to give up a Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, or Note 5 — all of which are worth a lot more than the OnePlus 2, and provide faster processors, more premium build materials, and vastly better cameras.
You’ve got to really hate beautiful design and great photos to take advantage of this opportunity, then — but it’s good that OnePlus is finding new ways to provide fans with the OnePlus 2. All of the Galaxy phones it receives will be donated to Hope Phones, a non-profit organization.
If you’re interested in this swap, visit OnePlus’ “Take The Edge Off” campaign page and fill out an application form before October 18, then wait to hear whether you’ve been selected.
