Anonymous, 13 Jul 2014I just got the invite suddenly today..... and able to order it. Good for you, but really in certain markets we don't even need invites as their local dealers have bulk stock.
It's not a scam . I got my invite and a phone consecutively not long time ago.
This phone does not exist, their invite system is scam, and do not waste your money on this at all!
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2014Good luck on getting an invite. They are harder to find than a needle in a haystack.They are playing you if you bought into their invite only claims. They are supplying it to any one ready to order in bulk. If I want I cant get it at a moments notice in atleast two countries I have last checked. Wholesale dealers already have them in stock. I am laughing my butts off at these invite schemes they are officially peddling. It is simply not the case. It is however true they are focusing on limited markets so only wholesale dealers in those markets get to order in bulk.
Who would buy a cyanogenmod phone? It's risky. Google is better. Stick with it. This isn't stable.
Anyone over here do you have any news that
OP is selecting people by looking / checking to their IP addresses and not just by filled addresses in their accounts?
so that they can roll out invites to selected users ??
Got my phone yesterday.oh boy this phone is rock solid in terms of handling and speed-wise. Camera does amazing images. I got 64 gb version. And you know what else I am happy about? It's free of bloatware. I have come from 4.7 " screen so defference is massive.this phone is quite biggish. I tell you one thing if this phone cost 400 pounds and were standing in the shop I would buy this phone without hesitation. How I think that most of the phones are overpriced.
GSM Arena, you forgot to mention that the battery is not user swappable.
You forgot Gionee Elife E7 as potential alternative to OnePlus One.

And most people who have fast, reliable, and cheap internet connections doesn't seem to understand this reason, or they just refuse to understand because they have the alternative. I hate the no-radio build now being the standard. It s*cks when you have H, H+ and 4G signals but the transfer rate is just 0-50kbps or 0-6kB/s.
The whole idea of having to be INVITED to spend my money put me off, but, I waited and waited from mid April and just got tired of the marketing hype by OnePlus/Oppo. Delay after delay after delay, even though the Oppo Find7 has been shipping for some time. The latest snub from OnePlus was the whole yellow screen bug. First, pushing it off as "we made the screen warmer", but after many people posted photos of the entire BOTTOM of the screen being yellowish, then OnePlus said well, it's suppose to be that way, you are only seeing it at high viewing angles or some other crap. It's a DEFECT, to make matters worse, some were told if you requested an RMA, that if the next one had the same issue, you were SOL! Yep, that will build brand loyalty won't it? Sorry, I just want to go to a site, click and have it sent to me. Begging for an invitation? Forget it.
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2014In this age of Internet and Digital radio, is the omission of an FM Radio really so bad????Maybe not a deal breaker but Fm radio use less battery, is very dependable and doesn't require any internet.
AnonD-282176, 10 Jul 2014The whole OnePlus phone debacle is ridiculous. this isn't a phone, its a marketing technique; ... moreUmm... Since I own this awesome phone, I can assure you- it's much more than a marketing gimmick. I got mine on Monday, and I absolutely love it. I will admit that the size takes a lot of getting used to, and if they ever came out with a 4.7-5 inch version, same specs, I would trade this one in a heartbeat.
Put an SD card slot, 10 Jul 2014If the next model comes with an SD card slot, I will shift.WHy would you need a SD card when the phone comes with 64Gb of storage?
AnonD-209094, 10 Jul 2014Its too big but the 64GB is interesting still.

The build quality is high end premium. The phones screams in terms of performance and the features are amazing. I wouldn't trade this phone for any phone on the market. The only one that comes close is the Galaxy S5, but that phone's build quality is weak in comparison and the software is full of bloat and gimmicks. I suggest reserving judgement until you can actually hold one in your hand and use it. The phone is worth the hype.
Its too big but the 64GB is interesting still. The low price kinda defends the use of a very inferior display tech but whats harder to defend is the camera, theres something wrong with the dynamic range, this doesnt look like the Imx 214 sensor at all. White balance seems to be on the warm side and that will affect color reproduction, but its acceptable i think.
I need a new phone and dont have so very high demands to the camera but i dont think this dynamic range can pass as acceptable.
,,Then of course, there are the issues surrounding any potential warranty claims that you may have down the road. Without a network of service centers around, you'd have to send the phone back to China if there are any issues down the road. You'd have to factor in that risk and the potential hassle, too."
That is actually not true. If you buy the phone in the EU from OPO then you also get EU warranty. Same applies to USA.
The resellers sell the chinese version of the phone, which has chinese warranty.
