Employees at a Malaysian Oppo kiosk attacked after theft of an Lenovo S860

Employees at a Malaysian Oppo kiosk attacked after theft of an Lenovo S860
Employees at an Oppo kiosk inside a mall in Malaysia were attacked this weekend after a shopper browsing for a smartphone was accused of shoplifting. 27-year old See Ming Ho, a salesman at the store, said that he was taking care of the shopper and the conversation had turned to pricing. See turned his back on the customer in order to give him a free gift. When he turned back around, the man was gone along with the handset that he was looking at.

The stolen phone was the Lenovo S860, which was being sold for the equivalent of $210.50 USD. When the alleged thief was later apprehended, the phone was not on his person. Later that evening, the accused criminal returned to the kiosk with a group of friends to beat up the Oppo salespeople that turned him in. He also said that the fight started because the Oppo kiosk tried to sell him a fake phone. The fisticuffs were captured on surveillance video which has since gone viral.

Is the Lenovo S860 worth risking a prison sentence to steal? The aluminum-clad phone features a 5.3-inch LCD screen, with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 277ppi. A MediaTek MT-6582 SoC is under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and a Mali-400 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of non-expandable storage. The back and front camera combo is 8MP/1.6MP and keeping the lights on is a huge 4000mAh battery. Android 4.2 is pre-installed. The phone was launched in May 2014.

The attack on the Oppo kiosk staff looks pretty intense. You can check it out along with some interviews and other information related to the incident by clicking on the video below.

Apple robs everyone stupid enough to buy one of their overpriced, underpowered fragile pieces of $hit.

I was going to make an Appel comment too. Look this ohone is brand new and cost onlt $120 USD, has a 720p dispaly which is very similat to 750p, has similar cameras with he iPhone having 1.2MP vs 1.6, 1.3GHz CPu vs 1.4Ghz; against a small difference. All metal, probably wont bend in your pocket and runs Android a the actual real most advanced operating system on a mobile device. Not sure how Lenovo can sell this so cheap though, unless they are circumventing costs with PC sales, which is even nicer.

Great. Just great. Another reason for stupid ideas. Getting a new smartphone.

We all know this is Government probaganda, It's just sad that many people fall for it. From a single theft problem leads to racist issue, my people need to widen their eyes to see wider picture, obviously someone doesn't want us to focus on "something".

considering that it's not in America or Europe... people are really poor elsewhere, phonearena should keep that in mind.

Malaysia is not a poor country by any means (I live in North Borneo), but not up to the likes of US or Europe.

Ah, Malaysia, I have no reason to praise this lovely country anymore, where racism is a common issue. One shoplifting can lead to a racist issue. I feel embarrassed.

In case you all wondering, it's all about politics to spread racism. In order to cover up prime Minister scandal 'Only a 1MDB smoking gun can topple Najib'http://www.cnbc.com/id/102823728

After you realise Malaysia flag is a rip-off of United States, you know how racism the country is, the only different is police choose not to shoot, but release all the thugs instead. First Noynoy-land, now is Boleh-land, what next?

If the act of beating of the employee was captured by the CCTV then shouldn't the act when the man stole the phone as well?
