Buyer claims new OnePlus 3 handset came pre-loaded with porn

OnePlus is known for creating affordable, high-end devices that come without any Android bloatware and offer a clean and simple experience for users. But it looks like there’s another experience that customers may get out of their new OnePlus phones, as one Reddit user found his new OnePlus 3 to be filled with porn.

According to a poster on Reddit, the user received his new OnePlus 3 handset only to find that it was pre-loaded with NSFW pictures and even a NSFW video. On top of that, other miscellaneous files, such as archives and some images of anime were also loaded onto the phone.

Now you might think that OnePlus was offering the user a special edition of the device, but as the original poster explained, the NSFW content “wasn’t even HD”. Plus, the owner of the images and video, which the Reddit user also posted online, seems to be himself in the images.

Now this isn’t the first time that new device came pre-loaded with peculiar content. At one point a number of iPhones famously shipped with images of the factory workers from China who were testing the devices while in production. And testing devices and their cameras is a normal part of the QA process. Though in this case someone seems to have taken things a bit too far.

The (un)lucky buyer said he wants to hear from OnePlus on this matter, so we’ve contacted the company to see if they wished to comment. We’ll update this post if and when they do.

Until then, giving your new devices a wipe right out of the box may not be such a bad idea.
