There are record makers and there are record breakers. As shocking as it would seem, these 5 smartphones entered the widely acclaimed Guiness World Records for being ‘ingenious’ and of-course the first to do / have what they did / had.

Before we stroll along, let’s take you back to what began the famous Guinness Book Of World records.
On 10 November 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver, then marketing director of the Guinness Breweries, went on a shooting party in the North Slob, by the River Slaney in County Wexford, Ireland. Find it on Google Maps, it’s an amazing place. Anyway, after missing a shot at a golden plover [pics], the gentleman found himself in an argument over which was the fastest game bird in Europe, the golden plover or the red grouse [pics]?

In the heat of the moment, Sir Beaver realized that it was impossible to confirm in reference books (what they used before, you know, Wikipedia) whether or not the golden plover was Europe’s fastest game bird. Falling short on substance behind his educated argument, Beaver knew that there must be numerous other questions debated nightly in pubs throughout Ireland and abroad, but there was no book in the world with which to settle said arguments about records. Perhaps the noble sir knew little of the club law. But nevertheless, he gained a valuable idea! He realized then that a book supplying the answers to this sort of question might prove successful, and this is the short briefing on how the Guinness World Records were born.

So, there you have it. Now smartphones have joined the list of break-makers and breakers and here’s the top 5 smartphones who’s made and/or broken a record on the world records book.

OnePlus the never-settling Chinese start-up would finally unveil the OnePlus Two in a product launch event slated for the 27th of July. The company plans to have a different approach from the regular “auditorium, a keynote, and a seated audience” style of launches in the mobile world. This time the makers of the ‘flagship killer’ are planning a unique way to interact with the audience through a virtual reality (VR) powered product launch.

According to a forum post by administrator Carl, OnePlus is using a different approach to launching a new device and also letting users explore the phone in ‘a new way’.

The VR experience would be handled by OnePlus own cardboard VR which have been modified from the various cardboard VR. According to Carl, “When we thought about doing this launch in VR, we wanted to make sure the viewing experience was simple and straightforward. We love the existing cardboard VR headsets, but we saw some room for improvement, and decided to design our own custom headsets. We spent a lot of time at the drawing board tweaking them until they were perfect. Our version is tailored perfectly to the One, as well as fast and easy to assemble. We didn’t cut any corners on production, and we’re definitely losing money on this. But, we want to share them with everyone.”
