It just shows just how much hype and popularity OnePlus has that this mornings empty OnePlus One unboxing even managed to make headlines.

OnePlus quickly contacted the winner and are now investigating the issue. We hope that the rest of the OnePlus One customers are more fortunate with their deliveries.

    I can believe that a worldwide delivery carrier would do that. What do they have to lose? It’s your word against theirs. Just ask the co-workers of the dude that delivered the package and see if he/she pulls out a new phone and is showing it off.

    Happened to my Hongmi also. The box came with charger and battery but no Hongmi. So who stole it? The Shenzhen company, DHL? They point to each other and as a bonus I had to pay import duties. Get over it, these things happen. Certainly viral marketing if things are still under investigation and you already conclude not to blame OPO.

      Get over it? This guy probably smashed his phone for this. There’s no way he’d simply get over or it.

        Less than 10 of the 100 actually smashed their phones, most donated them to charity.
