Well thats the hard truth, from my understanding you are comparing OP with other premium brand companies like Samsung, LG, Sony or even Huawei. OP is not as big a company as such. OP is a new company that came out with a bang and its doing well for a newbee. Founded on December 2013 and already it had made a mark in the android world. Not many companies made a name for them selves in such a short time. What it needs now is to have more investors so as to build more plants to meet the demands of its fans. Hence the saying "Rome was'nt built in a day". as for availability be sure to check out aliexpress.com anytime to grab yourself a piece anytime.

Because I can't for the life of me find a single source, except a 3-month-old press release about OP selling 30,000 OP2's in 64 seconds in China (and even that I find hard to believe).
I'd bet my next year's salary they haven't sold more than 250,000 units. WORLDWIDE. That's not good, my friend. So if it's such an awesome phone, why do you think it's selling so poorly?
Maybe, just maybe, it's because OP is a lousy, non-consumer oriented company. I still have my OP1 (on my second, actually). It's the best smartphone I've ever owned, and I give OP lots of credit for that. But they permanently alienated me as a customer after the OP2 launch. Not only did they choose to sell them on an invite-only basis (again), but they chose to give invites away to people who didn't even buy a OP1 before those that did.
Case in point: I bought 2 OP1's. I still have not received an invite to buy a OP2. That is a TERRIBLE way to do business. Does that mean I'm bitter because I want a OP2 but can't buy one? No, because shareable invites for OP2's are very easy to come by. They're posted on the OP forums all the time, and I've even seen them on listed locally on Kijiji (for free).
I will never buy another OP product, no matter how not-mediocre it is, and I know there are a lot of people out there who feel the same. OP is a one-trick pony, not because they can't design a good smartphone, but because they can't do a good job of selling them.
- underclocked processor, to prevent overheat.
- regressed. no dual speakers. opo is better.
So many open sales of this phone? Must have really flopped hard.
A good indication that OPT is not selling that well with invites... I am not surprised. The oxygen os is a poor, half baked OS and it will remain that way when you have a handful of developers trying to create a OS at their pace.
Others have caught up with OPT - it was perhaps a two trick pony. No way this is better than Moto X style or a Mi Note.
By calling it mediocre you just spitted out "Hi! i hate great smartphones cos I'm no tech savvy". Feel free to checkout its review and current sells charts. Stop commenting unless you know stuff.
I don't get this need to get a new phone whenever a new flavor of the month pops up. my Galaxy S2 is about 3 years old. it still works fine so there's no need to replace it.

totally deluded company with the worst marketing. Now you can buy our mediocre phones without having to waste your life getting an invitation. I can understand an invitation system if you create a futuristic, game changer device... but this. Pathetic.

Why is this phone even news!?
It's the crappiest company that only knows how to hype the sh*t out of social media, with little to no respect for their costumers (they actually bully the hell out of anyone that dares to report flaws), with crappy QC and an average phone that once looked great on a spec sheet but was always plagued by the same SD810 issues everyone else has plus a sub-par custom ROM they call "Oxygen".
I actually pity the fools that need an "invite" to buy anything from this crappy company.
excuse me,? no invite wow. i still wont buy. invite system huh...
