oneplus one review gizchina

The OnePlus One is still a solid phone even a year on, but it is even better when the price is slashed as it has been in India.

On the 20th May OnePlus will be working with online reseller Overcart.com to offer an limited number of unboxed OnePlus One phones at Rs 5000 less than the recommended retail price.

An unboxed unit is basically a phone which was has already been bought then returned by the original customer after opening the packaging. During this first sale only the 64GB Sandstone Black version of the OnePlus One will be up for sale at only Rs 16,999.

    I would be very wary of buying an unboxed phone. How many of these were returned due to defects and were they “refurbished”?

      Most of these are (usually) review units sent out to the media… so they are different from refurbished units. Bigger companies (eg. Samsung) don’t sell ‘unboxed’ phones, they probably just get them refurbished as well. Xiaomi and OnePlus are probably the only ones that sell phones ‘unboxed’.

    Very skeptical. Almost 25% off screams refurbished. If it was just an open box (or “unboxed” as they cleverly put it) such a large discount wouldn’t be needed to sell a phone that is already supposedly being sold at or near cost.

      My exact thought…

        Actually an extremely quick check over a http://www.overcart.com reveals “Starts at Rs.16,999 in unboxed and refurbed”.

        Also worth noting some of the phones they are selling “unboxed” only have 1/2 of the manufacturers warranty (6 months), not sure if that’s the case with the OnePlus.
