Even hours before their launch, OnePlus are still building hype by releasing the following “Smash the Past” video. Anyone who doesn’t like violence towards iPhones should look away.

For the past few days fans of OnePlus have been trying to figure out how they can be among the first 100 to get their hands on the OnePlus One flagship. Yesterday, more hints toward what OnePlus could be asking fans to do the first being a images saying you would need “tools” and the second the below video:

Gizchina News of the week

If you decided not to watch the carnage then you missed an iPhone being throughly smashed in to the ground, hit with a baseball bat, belted with a hammer and finally cut in two! The OnePlus forums are already lighting up after the video posted with fans discussing what it is that OnePlus are asking them to do. Could they really be asking fans to smash their current phones?

The video mentions the 25th April, but we will see if there are more details at the launch today.

      they’re nothing special. just a cookie cutter smartphone OEM that stole ideas from the company it broke off from, “designed” an exact clone of its phone and offered it to the market at/below production cost to get media attention. anyone can steal and give stuff away. it’s all they do.

    smash it? hell no!

    i could sell it or keep it for collection


    i would do that if your phone is really cutting edge in term of design, specs and innovations make every smartphone in the world looks from edwardian era

    but base on leaks your phone unexpectedly just standard
    yes it is good, it is decent but standard, no thinner, no bezelles, oppo-look-alike just like nowadays smartphone

      Like most people said on forums and such, they would either get a really old phone,a broken one, or just buy a cheap one to smash. You still get a 300 dollar phone for 1 dollar and oneplus has no way to make you prove that its not your current phone.

    Well, I guess it’s just too bad for me. We all know it’s impossible to break a Nokia 3310.

    • April 23, 2014

      C’mon Airyl, do not tell me that you are still using a Nokia 3310 in this age of Smartphones. If you are still using that archaic phone, I wonder what you are doing in here with us.

    I think this is a BIG BANG KICK in Apple’s butt. Telling them … you guys have made a phone which is inferior to the the One+One.

    Stupid waste….

    So… they want us to smash our phones today, and they’ll send us new ones in June?
