OnePlus support has been terrible for me. They have no idea what has happened with the supply and have resorted to radio silence so no going to pursue a refund. The process (having received an invite and raised an order)is very hit and miss with some receiving their delivery Ok while others wait way beyond the specified timeframe with no explanation. Phone seems OK but as said there will be others.
I'm really enjoying the phone is a bit large, who does not like big cell have to analyze the purchase. I bought the Chinese version and installed the cm11s, and now it updates by regular OTA as if it were original. He is perfect, the only flaw it is the yellow fabric on the bottom of the screen, which is almost imperceptible, but it's there. They say that with time some, it is the color of the glue that was stuck to the screen, I have my doubts, but this is the only fault it. Battery with great length, with fantastic screen image (because u can see only yellow when it's white), very fast, CM details that make all the difference.
Your marketing strategy is a major failure, Why registration need to be invited when people are interested to buy your product.
Well my advise to all phone seekers out there forget about this phone as there are many more choice coming our way.
Some online shop is selling this in our country here in the Philippines. Pretty awesome right?? :-D
hey for those who really want this phone you don't need an invite to buy it, you can buy the chinese version without check this link to see the difference between chinese and global version

Someone sounds salty that people can find success without empty suits inflating the costs.

Most people with memory cards are using USB dongles/readers anyway, which is also bound by USB cord transfer rates. If you have more than 50GB worth of data to move and cloud storage is insufficient, then maybe you just need a laptop?

I almost made the plunge with One+, it costs US$ 400 retail where I live, readily available. But a simple check using GSMA's comparison tool reveals Oppo Find 7 has the one thing I need: a mem card slot, vital bec I don't wanna bring a cable always for laptop data transfer, while Bluetooth is too slow. Primitive as it sounds, plugging a mem card is still the fastest way to transfer files between phone & PC

You could spend $150 more and get a Oppo Find7a which has similar specs PLUS SD card slot, removable battery, and VOOC fast charging. It varies from market to market but there are even better deals than this out there (such as the G Pro 2 going for as low as $400 USD in Hong Kong). Then there's the Mi3 wish is actually selling for less.
There are alternatives people, but you guys have been so brainwashed by OnePlus that you're not even looking.
I have bought this phone . superb quality .superb in everything and never settle .
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2014What is wrong with you people ? Why are you supporting this kind of marketing strategy ???Well, of course, if you don't mind spending $300 more to get a similar phone, you don't need the stupid invitation.
What is wrong with you people ?
Why are you supporting this kind of marketing strategy ???
Like seeing people begging others to get them invited just to buy your phone ?
I worked in advertising business but never seen something as low as this. Your objective might be good but if this is the outcome, you should consider having it revised to attend people's need. Are you planning to experiment the stability of the phone on the early buyers ? Are you trying to mitigate the risk of failure of the product ? If you are serious on taking on the market, do stop this kind of marketing strategy. Even Vertu does not have this kind of BS considering how exclusive the phone is.
Shame on you...
Any onePlus one user here got yellow tint problem? How to slove it?

The marketing policy of selling only to "invited" buyers is based on the assumption that buyers are stupid. If you refuse to buy this way, they will soon implore everybody to buy their product like any other manufacturer. In any case, you will very soon see better products at cheaper price coming to the market, without having to beg the sellers to sell their product.
