Very disappointed to see where the market is going, companies like oneplus releasing new flagships when they still have a ton of customers unable to properly use the current flagship oneplus2 due to very unstable and underachieving OS. Future buyers beware, customer service is near non existent.
The OnePlus One was plagued by software bugs that made it almost unusable at times. It had an attractive price tag and what made people want it more was that it was hard to get one lol. OnePlus 2 was a really solid device as it turns out, way better than the first iteration, but the price tag wasn't as appealing as the OnePlus One. In 2016 you will see many companies with a lot of high grade offerings for a compelling price.. If OnePlus wants to succeed they will need to do the following:
Customer Service.. They need to do something that will make users trust them, at this point their customer service is almost non-existent..
Price competitively and don't use the invite system.. who cares if they run out of stock? It's okay, Nexus aficionados what that feels like.. So it's not new.
UnknoWing, 25 Feb 2016Oh, 2017 flagship killer. By that time, I'm sure you OP3 won't be in your choice list. To me,... moreGood point about affordability. The success of the OnePlus One was due to no manufacturers really offering something like that at a lower price at the time. Now that Lenovo owns Motorola and they have been pricing very nice phones at a lower realm, OnePlus has little chance of success.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2016That is not surprising seeing everyone going metal nowadays.Which is unfortunate. Where I live (Nordic country) the winters are simply freezing and then any all-metal phone feels really uncomfortable to hold in hand while being outside. No thanks to all-metal phones.
Having heard so much about the original (one plus one) and having used Samsung, HTC, Apple, Sony, I thought I would give one plus a try. I really wanted it to be a good experience but I have to be honest and say it was not. The support only operates at US times. The support could not help me with basic problems and I was passed around the place for weeks. The camera is shocking....about as good as a Samsung Galaxy Mini series camera if even. Display so far behind the market leaders too and lots of bugs in software. Accessories massively overpriced take a long time to arrive and postage charges are shocking. I ended up selling mine and going back to Samsung, got a Samsung S6 and the difference in all spec is huge. My advice, if you are already using Samsung or HTC, do not change as you will be downgrading...Simple!! I found the one plus two to be the equivalent of a Google Nexus 5 which i had 2 years ago!!
Ahh! One more flagship killer who is sitting pretty with Lollipop while rest all has moved to Marshmallows.
One of the reason for people choosing flagship is getting timely updates.
The less said about their support is better... Also their fingerprint scanner is worst it seems...
Q2 means the financial years' Q2(Jul Aug Sep) or the years' Q2 (Apr May June)?
No OnePlus, your devices are no flagship killers, your devices are a failure just like your marketing scheme which failed miserably. Flagship killer my ar$e.
Pietje, 25 Feb 2016Nope, it means op 3 will be 2017 flagship killerOh, 2017 flagship killer. By that time, I'm sure you OP3 won't be in your choice list.
To me, OP is not affordable anymore and so better consider other brands.
1+ devices may be close to some Android flagships in terms of specs but the relative affordability is completely negated by absolute unavailability
OnePlus 2 was said to be the '2016 flagship killer'. Why there is a need to release OnePlus 3 in 2016? Does that mean OnePlus can't stay true to their words?
