I said this since day 1 of the hype that this is all will be a joke.
Dear This Company has become joke before it's launch. Imagine what they can deliver then..., only jokes. They are unable to deliver their product to only three digit number of people, what would they do when It's time to deliver all over the world.
Really very cheap Service, No Customer Service, and they were right the first day they launch, Never Settle! They would never get settle with such a poor team.
I was waiting for months for this phone to launch, but I think it is gonna take another year to reach me.
No Thanks, OnePlus Zero! I don't need you. You are the only ONE who is worst in Cellular market.
Everyday new promise and every next day promises broken.
Company of Immature people. It looks like they are playing game with their customers, if the consumer in market believe their lies or not.. but we are awaken OnePlus Zero.
Announce a phone, DIRT cheap. Make it look exactly like the Find7, which is more expensive. Call yourself a startup, but you are owned by BBK Electronics, which owns Oppo Mobile & Oppo Electronics. Build up inventory of the cheaper Find7a, which, save for the added removable battery, notification light, quick charge, OS, microSD card, is a clone of the OnePlus. Let a few OnePlus phones out to the world, blogs, reviews etc, get favorable press, but keep inventory minimal. Announce a few bugs, delays, problems to keep them from shipping, all the while building up inventory of the Cheaper Find7a. Eventually people will get tired, order the Find7a for a HIGHER price than the "flagship killer" OnePlus. PROFIT! It's the ole bait & switch that a lot of companies use for end of year, after Thanksgiving "black Friday". Put a ridiculous price on some electronic do-dad, but have very few in stock. People rush to the store, only to find them gone...what to do? Well, lookie over here...it's just like the cheap one, but a much higher price...what the heck, might as well buy it, I'm already here. Well Played Oppo/One Plus!

- A spin-off from Oppo, that shares production lines with Oppo is hardly a "small Chinese start up".
- Xiaomi is pretty much what you describe and they seem to do well don't they?
But then again, I think I pretty much spelled out the "whys" in my previous reply.

That is plain old management failure, period.
Knowing this and still insisting on the viral marketing campaigns is adding insult to injury.
The OBVIOUS for such high demand is to just make a damned wait list, first-come first-served.
But that would only happen if this wasn't a marketing ploy -- which IT IS, since nobody is THAT incompetent to keep such a viral campaign going whilst having an alleged sh1tstorm of troubles to keep with demand.
The UNSETTLING part is how people are still following this sham.
i received email regarding invite at 31th may after week nothing contacted admins nothing this shit company

I wonder what kind of customer support you will get once there are issues with the device, like the saying goes, you get what you pay for. People need to understand that when you buy something the cost reflects materials costs, manufacturings costs, R&D costs, customer service costs, marketing costs, warranty costs.
Got my One+ One 3 days ago.
Ordered online by LANTEEN. Waiting 4 days and now I´m very happy. Price was 340€.
But today I was surprised by the Oppo Find 7.
Much more better for 469€.

I find it more disappointing that Sony had a shortage of something than OnePlus. It was to be expected that OnePlus would have problems handling the demand.
One Plus is waaay too snobbish for what they are. Good teaser but that's about it.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2014According to you most of the companies are amateurs. I can think of sony and their xperia z2 f... moreWait, WHAT?
Last time I recall Sony did not require anyone to continuously beg for an invite that gave the "oh-so-mighty privilege" of buying their phone.
They had a one time shortage, that resulted in a one time delay. THAT'S IT. That's how it's done when there is proper planning.
When it launched ANYONE could order it (officially) from any phone shop, with full warranty and no "dramas" or "hoops".
I can only begin to imagine what might happen if one of this phones breaks down!
They actively ignore people on their forums, they don't have any physical center to go to and their supply is notoriously short. -- Sorry, but you'll really have to "settle" with the departure of your money but no phone to show for quite a serious while.
