Being the huge tech fans that we are, we're more than just a little excited about the OnePlus One smartphone. Combining the tried-and-tested formula of high-end specs and low price, the CM-running device is sure to be a hit when it makes it to market. Speaking of market, Oppo's spin-off company decided to promote its handset using the fairly common tactic of encouraging would-be early adopters to film themselves smashing up their iPhones. Some refused, while others played ball, and the winners, as you'll see in the clip below, went above and beyond the call of duty.
The community propping up CyanogenMod, one of the most popular aftermarket firmware available to Android users, is expansive to say the least, and with hardware maker Oppo having teamed up last year with the CM team to build a handset packing the versatile, customizable software pre-loaded, Oppo's spin-off company OnePlus appears to have taken things to the next level. The OnePlus One smartphone will run CyanogenMod 11S (based on Android 4.4) right off the bat, and with an impressive list of tech specs and a very agreeable price point, could prove a real hit with hack-minded consumers.
In a technology world dominated by behemoths like Apple, Samsung and HTC, it's always heart-warming when one of the smaller firms manages to get some attention. OnePlus is a prime example of a little guy doing potentially great things in the smartphone world, and its upcoming OnePlus One device has been getting quite a bit of attention amongst smartphone enthusiasts.
