    It all gets tracked in the RaffleCopter backend. Unfortunately there is no front end for you to see who has signed up using your referral link.

    Never felt this lucky before. May be because its for my dad. I have hardly gifted him anything and this is one phone that I want to gift him.

    Hope to get it. Fingers crossed.

    Last week's winner has been announced, a chap from Greece won. This week we're giving away another OnePlus One: http://www.androidauthority.com/oneplus-one-64gb-international-giveaway-3-407114/

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I guess today wasn't my day. Anyways will wait for one more week then.

    The worst part is that even if I want to spend money on my one plus one. I can't as no invites are available.

    Keeping fingers crossed this week.
