    So... does this mean wait until we get a look at the next phone? I get the feeling this is going to be a more premium version

    Well this really sucks. I want the 2. But I always need the latest. So now I will need to buy this new one as well. Great!

    Thanks! :)

    He is really crazy for mentioning it. I do not want to call anyone an idiot but he can really hurt the chances of the 2 really taking off. Why would he do that!

    The only thing that i know is future proof is death itself, they say taxes but who knows.
    I was initially upset with the lack of NFC, but then I asked myself why would they leave out such an 'essential' feature. How many people know what NFC is or even does? the regular user almost never activates NFC, who can, without looking at their phone, know how to access the NFC setting?
    How many operations have you done using NFC?
    Where have you gone that NFC is needed to do anything?
    Where have you gone where NFC MAY have made a payment, access, logging in or anything easier?
    Its is a nice contraction on the spec sheet but FOR NOW, its an appendix , the one in your stomach not the one at the back of a book.

    Meh, Oneplus One still gives a great bang for the buck. I don't think i'll be buying the Oneplus Two to use as a daily driver...

    NFC is a huge part of my android life(tap to pay, sharing photos here and there with friends and family, I filled my house with nfc stickers on the walls, tables etc) thats what pretty much killed it for me...

    Ups, sorry then.. Well maybe for you it's a simple thing.. But i already used my old phone for almost 4 years and i always wait for one that can be use for a long time.. You can say that because you can get a cheaper price for almost every phone.. In my country there's always a $50-$100 different in price.. Of course i'll be more skeptical.. And really sorry if i offended you in someways

    Yeah i get you. I try to do the same. I own the one for a year now. And before that i had a 3 year old bb but it broke so i bought the one. Still quite happy with it. :)

    And of course you didn't offend me or something.

    How many people signing up of OP2 invites are actually going to buy the phone? I'm guessing 25%. I, for one, was quite underwhelmed by the OP2, and I am a die-hard OPO supporter (I own two). I think that it will go down as an over#HYPE'ed flop. Only time will tell. I am going to skip the OP2, for now, in order to see what the Huawei Nexus has in store. If the rumors are true, it will be the true "flagship killer".
