    I wonders who agrees, I understand people want to keep their phone for a while but I think its healthy for people to buy an upgrade every year when the company releases a new phone.

    I dont mean from OPO to OP2 to OPX but more like OPO to OP2 to OP3.
    Because of nobody buys a new device it's not good for the company

    Even though I'm a moderator I cannot simply agree with this. People should buy phones when they need, not to keep companies alive. Especially because company allegiance makes zero sense.

    You do know that not everyone who has a OP2 will have owned a OPO and that they will buy a OP3.
    I totally agree, I bought this phone because of value, spec and because I liked the product. If the product is poor, i'm not going to buy it.

    If I could I would have bought the 2. Still, the fingerprint reader, no front facing speakers and specially the absence of CyanogenOS made me skip the OP2 completely. I hope the 3 comes out right so I can support OnePlus.

    If you believe that the OP3 will come with CyanogenOS, good luck! Where have you been the past year? :rolleyes:

    You will have to buy a ZUK or Yu to get COS!

    That's some weapons-grade A capitalist bullshit right there.
    Sorry, but if OnePlus keeps making good devices, I'll buy my next device from them.
    My OPO will last till it's dead or ungodly slow.

    In the end, if you stick to OP you will have to buy a phone once a year :D

    Having in view that the phone will break and the service support does not exist in reality (i guess it's just a robot with template replies), once a year seem reasonably possible

    The loss of CM made me go meh, then the loss of NFC meh, then the new opx with dual sims was yes great ill wait, then opx with 16gb only and no 5ghz n more it was a even bigger meeeeh !
    OpO still beats the new in my wallet, as i got opo simply for that it had CM preinstalled ! And i wanted to support it...

    Also a new cellphone creates approximately 84kg waste in the making.
    So i saved the globe from 168kg waste in not buying the two for me downgraded units.

    Relly a pity, i haven't tried nither opt or opx might changed my mind if did it, but as it stands dont feel the urge to buy neither.

    It would have been lost in translation.

    His nickname is 'donietzodom' which translates into 'don't be so dumb'.

    Considering his dumb suggestion, I replied, don't be so dumb, in Dutch to match his nickname. :)
