A OnePlus 5 buyer in India claims that he received the smartphone without the volume rocker.

The buyer has reportedly been offered a full refund by Amazon India since the OnePlus 5 is currently out of stock in India. Notably, his tweet doesn't confirm that he bought the OnePlus 5 from Amazon India.

Twitter user Kapil Tandon in tweeted showing the OnePlus with missing volume controls. "The just delivered OnePlus 5 volume button/switch missing," Tandon wrote in a tweet accompanied by an image. Tandon is cited by BGR India to claim the OnePlus 5 retail box had the volume buttons loosely placed inside the box.
