    Greetings my friends,

    so my Bday is soon and i'm getting a new phablet device . after a look and comparison i decided to give up my old iphone 5 and buy a new one ( either note 3 or OPO ) but after seeing the device online and some reviews i got fascinated by it.
    so i'm considering buying it from ebay or amazon (usually the prices for the 64gb starts from 450$) obviously it's 100+ plus the shipment fees and etc :3
    but i'm considering doing it for the one never settle right ? :D

    so what do you think ? is it safe or i should wait till my Bday pass and i die till i get the invite ?

    I got mine from someone giving me an invite. As far as buying the phone from Ebay I wouldn't. You don't know if they had problems with the phone and are trying to dump it or not. Then there is the warranty issue. Do a search and you will find One Plus One addressing this issue. If I were to the point I had to have a phone and couldn't wait I would do some research and find the next best phone and buy it. The other option is to buy an invite on Ebay but I wouldn't pay over $50 for it. That way the phone is in your name and gets shipped to you and you have the full warranty.

    If you can afford it. I would buy a invite instead of a Phone. It will be alot cheaper and You get a New Device. You have a high number, so waiting will be arround 1-2 months or You can try to win it via contests(. Writing on Nexus 4)

    Actually, I would also consider other phones like OPPO Find7, Nexus 6, Xiaomi MI4, LG3.
    I would not think that you will get any invites soon therefore you should also look around.
    I personally will get me a MI 4, which has the better operating system and better quality, is easily usable with one hand only, but has a smaller screen. 5 Inch.

    I would have gone with the LG3 if I hadn't gotten the One. The only problem with it is the price being another $300 more. Reviews show it as real close with a much better camera and great focus system.

    the problem with the invites on Ebay that i'm not sure it's an invite or not . maybe it's scam ?

    I for sure would buy an invite before I would buy a phone on Ebay. I know a couple of people who have purchased the invites and they worked fine for them.

    just be patient and participate in the forums you might get an invite sooner than you think
