OnePlus has launched a program that offers a 10 percent discount to the OnePlus 5 for students, in exchange for completing three assignments.
The OnePlus 5 may have its share of problems, but it is still very much a capable smartphone that will prove to be valuable to students, whether as a learning tool for the classroom or as a leisure device outside of school.
OnePlus Student Program For 10 Percent Discounts
The OnePlus Student Program was announced through a thread on the official OnePlus forums. For those who want to enjoy a 10 percent discount on the OnePlus 5, there are three assignments that first need to be accomplished.
The first assignment for the OnePlus Student Program is for customers to prove that they are really students. This would require them to create an account at Student Beans, a coupon platform that specializes in providing students with discounts on various items such as electronic devices, food and clothes. The Student Beans account will be verified to grant the customer access to the OnePlus Student Program.
The second assignment will be for the students to claim their discount. A button will be waiting for verified customers, and once the button is clicked and the coupon redeemed, the discount will be valid for one month.
The third assignment will be for the students to activate the discount during checkout, with the 10 percent price off to be applied to their bill.
OnePlus 5 Discount For Students
The 10 percent discount for the OnePlus 5 comes with a few limitations. Students are only allowed to claim one coupon every year, and each order using the coupon must only contain one unit of the OnePlus 5.
The discount extends beyond the OnePlus 5 though, so students can also use it in an order containing any number of other items such as chargers and cases.
The OnePlus Student Program is also only available for customers in the following countries: United States, United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.
OnePlus 5 Issues
Before purchasing the OnePlus 5, it is only fair that students know about some of the issues that other users have reported for the smartphone.
Some users have reported that the OnePlus 5 reboots after calling 911, a dangerous bug as smartphones are often the most accessible form of communication during emergency situations. There are also reports of users experiencing OnePlus 5 jelly-like scrolling, which is likely caused by a screen that was mounted upside-down.
