Akki246, 05 Dec 2014the point was india wont receive the update after the deal of cyanogen with micromax...but xce... moreIf that's the case then great for Indian OPO users.
Am not so sure things are that clear or else OPO wouldn't have responded they way they did initially. Like they say 'No smoke without fire'
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2014how can i get this ?You have to register with oneplusone website to get an invite, if u r selected you get a mail to buy this phone.
I'd registered with OnePlusOne website almost 20 days ago..got selected to buy this phone on 4th Dec, and ordered one on 4th and they came to deliver handset on 5th around 3pm,by the time I had left for office tour, i have asked them to deliver on 8th Monday, this smartphone seems to be wonderful peice of engineering... eagerly waiting for this phone...
guys it is given in the official cyanogen site that the earlier news was false and that indian versions will get update like everyone else.
MHanz, 05 Dec 2014The key word is "global" version, depends on how you acquired it. The talk is of Ind... morethe point was india wont receive the update after the deal of cyanogen with micromax...but xcept india everyone will...so now they r saying that india will too receive...there is no specific update for india...same as global..:D
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2014please see the post, CM is going to provide update for the Indian usersThe key word is "global" version, depends on how you acquired it. The talk is of India specific models. It seems like there is a special version of CM11S for India to stop the OTA that global versions will get. If the models were all the same as global versions to begin with then they would be blocking OTA based on IP which is easy to bypass.
Either the first story of India specific models is false or this only applies to non-India specific models. How else would CM have exclusivity in India with Micromax if Oneplus are selling global variants anyway? Oneplus aren't that stupid to claim they don't understand CM's decision themselves.
Think of it like the Color OS version that sells in China, thats not a global variant. It's easy to flash to the global CM11S ROM though.
Nik24, 05 Dec 2014The invite system lacks a lot. Why don't ONE PLUS ONE revel there phones in market, yeah there... moreThat is because, it is a start up and their fund is mostly from investors rather than from the sale of their phones. So, if they predict the demand incorrectly and produce more phones that what they can sell, they cannot absorb the loss. This might not be a problem for a large company such as Samsung...
[deleted post]Yeah, if you get the India specific version then you are out of luck with CM updates. But I wont be too concerned as Oneplus is making a near stock OS with features that people would like to have from all these custom ROMs.
S.INFINITY, 05 Dec 2014Well that's a relief........
As cyanogenmod's customisability is one of key factor 1+1.
The home grown OS OnePlus plans to develop can have all that. Cyanogen is still a small company, nothing too hard for Oneplus to easily match. Oneplus has also the advantage of trying to license OPPO's IPs this of course might raise the price of the next Oneplus Two.
The new Oneplus OS will be more like Motorola's releases, very close to stock. There is a good chance Oneplus might bring the Oneplus One's camera new life with proper software because right now Cyanogen's only weakness is the camera app. It definitely can use some Digital image stabilization.
The invite system lacks a lot. Why don't ONE PLUS ONE revel there phones in market, yeah theres a policy issue about this but no doubt if it launches the market, it will obviously bring down all the market in its own hand. Or may be not. All the customer want is that LAUNCH IT IN THE MARKET..........I am sure 70% will get carried up with this phone and moreover this phon will rock the market.
Well that's a relief........

3ngin33r, 05 Dec 2014Yellow tint problem has a fix thoughIt is a hardware problem and there is no "real fix". Tone the monitor to more blue to balance the yellow is not a solution. Can you say just don't look at the lower part of the monitor then everything solved immediately?
Night-Fury, 05 Dec 2014Why the hate dude? Let's not forget the fact that it was a very small number of phones that ha... moreBase on mine and my friend experience, base on what I read from XDA forum, the chance to get a yellow mon OPO is like over 90% chance. You better just accept this is a fact and don't lie to yourself.
SHiv, 05 Dec 2014Buddy, I'm sure you are not one of the Oneplus user, so please get a Device and comment, else ... moreI bought one before and refund immediately after I saw lower half of the monitor is just YELLOW. 5 of my friends bought OPO before and 4 of them had yellow monitor issue. The only one who didn't get yellow monitor issue got phone talk quality issue, but he couldn't get RMA, CS told him that is just normal.
anyways thanks to CYANOGEN for providing their CM updates
to india also
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2014Cyanogen mod is nothing compared to Sense 6's optimizations. Just like a dual core iPhone beat... moreLOL Sense UI is better than Cyanogenmod or the other custom ROMs?? That alone makes you not worthy of being taken seriously. You should also go take a look at the camera samples at reviews sites who have spent some time with the device, utter garbage to be even compared with what the Oneplus One can manage despite the fact Oneplus One is nowhere close to be called the better cameraphones in the market. That's just how bad the desire 820 is. It's a mid range device but priced way too high to be considered because those who can buy the Oneplus One will see it's a nobrainer. Cyanogenmod or Custom ROMs by XDA community just makes any OEM ROM out there totally redundant.
Ya know I bought the Oneplus One 64GB Black for 1269 Ringgets on a duty travel to Malaysia. The HTC 820 is selling now for 1099 Ringgets. That's a total fail of a marketing move if they want that much for a mid range phone. Your only argument would be that some cant buy the Oneplus One, I can and am only cared about the possibilities when I can. Oneplus one is hands down the better value for the buck and the battery life on the Oneplus One is pure and simple outstanding it's right up there with any of the top phones of 2013 and 2014 combined. Oneplus has to sort their logistical issues and get rid of the invite system because supply is not one of the reasons it has this is lame invite system going on even now.
