Bad Review for OnePlus 3 Smartphone : Buyer claims his handset came with porn preloaded on it

Mumbai, June 18: Smartphone manufacturers (and carrier tie-ups) often fill their phones with bloatware or unwanted apps. OnePlus phones — the OnePlus 3 for instance — are on the contrary known for their near stock Android and bloat-free experience. Therefore, when a certain buyer comes up and shares a feedback that his OnePlus 3 phone came with bloatware preloaded in it, it comes as a little surprise. That this preloaded bloatware consists of NSFW adult content is even baffling.

The buyer has taken to Reddit to share his experience and he’s clearly not happy. Not because OnePlus bundled the phone with NSFW content — that includes both images and a video — but because it wasn’t even in high-definition.

“Maybe they’re looking out for me? But it wasn’t even HD. It also had an anime(bleach) image and some docs and zips :S,” the buyer shared on Reddit.

Moreover, the buyer has also added links to the images and the video in his post, and is apparently on the look-out of what OnePlus has to say on this.

The OnePlus 3 is an awesome phone for the price that it commands, but you can’t help but notice that is also an awesomely jinxed smartphone. The phone price and features made their way to a national daily way before launch. That the advertisement carried the specs wrong meant even more embarrassment for the company.

Also, Amazon India which is the official seller of the OnePlus 3 in India made the phone’s product page live (and started sending out emails quoting price and specifics to potential buyers) ahead of launch.

Then of course, was the official VR launch itself which as many viewers have narrated on social media was a pretty harrowing experience. Right before the launch was to begin, the Loop VR asked users to download additional 604MB of data, and for those who did, the app was ripe with frequent crashes leading to a not so pleasant experience.

The OnePlus 3 has been launched in India at a price of Rs 27,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB memory variant.
