Entering new age of phone marketing

OnePlus demonstrated its innovation in being the first company to launch the campaign enabling people to literally smash their phones in exchange for the new ones. This approach has, symbolically, marked a new era of technology marketing and new approach in getting closer to the customers.

It needs to be acknowledged that, in the world where large companies are controlling the market, this approach stirred otherwise lethargic consumer environment.
