Why would anyone want to buy a phone with VERY poor cellular reception?
Ayush01, 28 Nov 2014You all wackheads out there bashing their marketing strategy,that sort of marketing approach w... moreRegardless of their strategy, it's frustrating for consumers when they want to buy their products but are unable to.
Santu, 28 Nov 2014The should think about a dual sim version and also a 32 gb version. I'm waiting for it. Yeah me too brother.. *thumbs up*
Ayush01, 28 Nov 2014You all wackheads out there bashing their marketing strategy,that sort of marketing approach w... moreYour story has one factual error, there isn't any shortage of units in China (a country which isn't exactly known to be small or have little population).
You can literally walk-in a regular phone store in China and walk-out with a brand new One Plus One -- ColorOS version (that is flashable to CM11S).
So don't BS us with the "they are small and don't want to produce more units than necessary" because that ship has sailed a long time ago!
As someone who tried throughout yesterday to claim my invite and finally got it through in the evening all I can say is LOL.
As far as 'dated' goes, 2012 flagships are still running just fine. Samsung Galaxy S3 are still running just fine. To call it dated is being humourous when the most talked about phone of the year was Moto G.
This phone will be fine even in 2016 short of he battery dying prematurely. Now with RAW support for those who like to use Adobe lightroom, it is compelling. I am looking forward to seeing if I like the size and CM customisation. Have never rooted my phone but heard good things about them.
I added 64GB sandstone black to the Cart. But it's not available in UAE.They can't ship the device to the billing address. Pathetic
The should think about a dual sim version and also a 32 gb version. I'm waiting for it.
Ayush01, 28 Nov 2014You all wackheads out there bashing their marketing strategy,that sort of marketing approach w... moreAgree with you sir..
I'd rather buy through an invite system than the flash sales that xiaomi does.
Those who are complaining about it should go and get a samsung/htc/sony. You have to make some sacrifice if you want it cheap..
You all wackheads out there bashing their marketing strategy,that sort of marketing approach was the most sensible for them.They make very meagre amount of profit from each device they sell.They are still a very small OEM and they don't want to produce more units compared to what they can sell and incur heavy loss for unsold units.Xiaomi followed a similar approach 3yrs back and now they are 3rd largest smartphone manufacturer.
Just a word of thought would u all have gone for a world wide release in ur starting days itself were you a smartphone manufacturing company?
Out of all the black friday promotions (if that's what this is) this has got to be the weakest in black friday history.
Not even a price cut.
indian buyers can buy from oneplus site now dont forget to add in cart. the acessories like data cable and screen protector
Its time Motorola/Sony/Smasung/LG should bring prices little bit down. If these no-name companies can assemble good hardware at low cost, why can't these big shots. As far as quality is concerned these cheapies perform at par with flagship products.
NOW, dear OnePlus you can kiss my... you know what. with such lame selling strategy, that make loots of noise, but less actual users you can forget about that phone, its better to buy last gen flagship than playing with your idiotic game of: "we gonna sell you it, when you get 1000friends in FB or get invitation fro Pope"
Beside I would understand if this phone would be amazing but its nothing special. I would rather give 100$ more and buy phone straight from the shop without waiting even 10sec
TheNeighbor, 28 Nov 2014No one cares about this now, after all the mistakes they made with invites and silly contests.... moreWhile it doesn't offer the latest SoC, it's far from dated. The Nexus 5 with an even older SoC is still selling like hotcakes
