A Word on Devices in Israeli Market

    Hi Friends,

    I just want to give a quick update to our Israeli fans.

    Lately, I’ve noticed an influx of OnePlus 2 devices being purchased in China and shipped to Israel for resale. These devices are the OnePlus 2 Chinese version meaning they have been optimized for China only. The Chinese version will have very limited 4G connection and lackluster call quality outside of China. These devices also do not have dual-SIM capability outside of China.

    Moreover, the Chinese versions of the OnePlus 2 come preinstalled with our China specific operating system called Hydrogen OS. Importers open up each phone and flash their own modified versions of our global operating system Oxygen OS, which is not tuned for the OnePlus 2 Chinese version. Some of these modified operating systems contain spyware, malware, and other types of viruses designed to steal your information.

    Thus, OnePlus does not condone the purchase of these devices. Unfortunately, at this time, these are the only available OnePlus 2s in the Israeli market. They have even been passed to the media for reviews.

    However, we have been working extremely hard to bring the OnePlus 2 and other OnePlus products to Israel. Please stay tuned for some exciting announcements in the near future. As of now, I would advise everyone to hold off on purchasing a OnePlus 2.

    Thank you for letting us know. Unfortunately most OP2s that were shipped to Israel are the ones that are sold in web stores like Ali-Express and eBay. The owners don't seem to tell the difference and buy them anyway.

    OnePlus products that are sold at ChinaBuy are NOT officially supported by OnePlus. That's the risk of ordering from 3rd party sellers.

    I received an invite for opt, but I have decided not to use it mainly because you do not ship to Israel.
    Last year I bought OPO when I was in the US, which I can not do any longer as the LTE in the US telephone does not work in Israel.
    another word, you do your best to keep me away from your devices.
    I hope I will receive another invite with a possibility of shipping to Israel, or to get the global version in the US too.There are unlimited options to buy a new device.

    I have purchased a Chinese OP2 form Oppom--t and got it a month ago. It came with OxygenOS 2.0 installed, works perfectly since than, with fluent 4G reception and excellent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Since I got the device I upgraded to OxygenOS 2.02 with no problems. I also installed Hydrogen Os and than CM 12.1 but reverted to Oxygen 2.0.2... Chinese device is EXCELLENT!! And I'm from Israel.

    אני ממש אובדת עצות.

    I bought my OPT from Chinanbuy. All options are working. 2 sims.4G. No malware.
    So stop all this propaganda against buying it from other dealers.
