OnePlus One is Now Permanently $249, Offers “Free” Dropbox Pro for $349

A week ago, OnePlus announced that their first phone, the OnePlus One, would see a flash sale like $50 discount for a week. Since that “experiment was a great success,” they have decided to drop the price permanently by $50 to $249 (16GB) and $299 (64GB). Even though this phone is over a year old, that’s still a heck of a price for a phone this good.

Beginning June 10, the OnePlus One pricing options will start at $250, which is a great price for what it has to offer. But that’s not all. I thought about this OnePlus also announced a partnership with Dropbox, which will see the 64GB OnePlus One being bundled with a one year Dropbox Pro subscription for only $350.

The new Dropbox Pro bundle is available after June 10:

Speaking of which, OnePlus is also offering a special bundle with the 64GB OnePlus One for $349 that includes a one-year subscription to Dropbox Pro. Useful Reference on dropbox. Normally, the price of a year’s subscription to the cloud storage service is $99, so you would be saving $50 if you get it with the OnePlus One. It offers 1TB of cloud storage for all of your photo, video and document saving needs. The deal is valid in the US, EU, and Canada.

1TB of Dropbox space: Get plenty of space to backup, sync, and share files across all of your devices. Your files stored in Dropbox are 256-bit AES and SSL encrypted with two-step verification, so data remains safe and secure.

Unmatched compatibility: Dropbox apps run on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Desktop apps are available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. You can also access your Dropbox in any web browser. And since everything you keep in Dropbox is synced automatically across your devices, you can access your data at any time.

Secure Sharing & Image Backups: Send any file to your friends with a simple URL, even if they themselves don’t have a Dropbox account. These links can be password protected or set to automatically expire after a set period of time. With the Dropbox app for Android, you can choose to have your One’s camera images uploaded to Dropbox as you take them.

In reality, the fact that the OnePlus 2 is likely just around the corner and newer devices like the ZenFone 2 and Idol 3 are increasing the competition in the low-end price segment probably have just as big as a role to play here. Regardless of OnePlus’ motivation, the new asking price is very welcome and certainly makes the OnePlus One stand out as one of the best values on the market today.
