    It looks beautiful even today. Thanks for sharing.

    I made a mistake by giving off mine to my younger cousin on a condition that he'll return it to me whenever he'll buy a new phone.

    Got it back but he damaged it quite a lot.
    Wish I would've bought him a new $150 phone back then. 😔

    OnePlus One has got a special place in my heart. 🙂

    I think for me the biggest thing about OPO was the whole hype/launch/exclusivity and the fact that at the time, it really was an amazing flagship killer. Also the price of it!

    Wish I had kept the box and everything with it too, shame about the scratch back. I absolutely loved the whole sandstone rear, it's the only phone I haven't thought about getting a case for because of how grippy it was to hold.

    Back to that time I was just a kid and didn't knew anything about OnePlus. Well ngl but OP did manage to get the hype it deserved through the invite system. Their scarcity theory worked quite well. Also OnePlus caught my attention when they launched OnePlus 3T. It was the best to get. But I connected to OnePlus with the 6T, an amazing phone which I bought in 2018 and still rocking. Might work some more years though.

    I've joined the forum months before its launch in India... Lived the invite exclusivity and the sheer pleasure to grab a OnePlus One on its launch day in India.

    I had enjoyed that time quite a lot. Way too much hype for a phone lauch. Over the top specs at awesome price.

    Here's the first invite I received... It's a global one with few select countries of initial OnePlus One launch. The invite used expire in 24 hours... This made them even more sacred.

    It was quite a fun that time... Met a lot of people sharing the same interest... Hunted down lots of invites for OnePlus One, 2, X and shared them with fellow Community members. Happy memories.

    Here's one of the conversation of me sharing an invite with a fellow Community member.
    I hope you can feel the thrill of grabbing the most coveted OnePlus entity ever.

    By some technical glitch, I received 20 invites but sadly none of them worked. Then things got a bit messy in my life and the money saved for the OP1 slipped away. I finally boarded the OnePlus train on an OP6.

    Day 2: Recording Your Best Shot

    Image_20211203020602.png

    If we speak about the OnePlus 9 Series, what comes to your mind? I’m sure the Hasselblad Camera is high up there. This year, our partnership with Hasselblad led to many firsts – we built lunarland with Hasselblad, launched XPAN mode, invited Hasselblad Ambassadors to record and share the natural beauty of life with OnePlus 9 Series, invited Hasselblad Masters to host Community-exclusive Photography Workshops…

    We also had a fair share of Photography events – we launched OnePlus Photography Awards 2021, we brought back Offline Photowalks in Frankfurt and New York, and received tremendous stories and moments captured by our users.


    Every photo tells a story, and every story is worth sharing.

    For the second day in this thread, we invite you, our talented community friends, to share your best shot with OnePlus, whether that is with the OnePlus 9 Series or any other OnePlus device!

    Since I've bought it about 3 weeks ago and contracting covid for the second time, I haven't tested the full potential of the camera, I kind of like this night shot on my way home from work.
