    Disclaimer: This all may look like a rant thread, but it's not... It's just a random thread that someone with a lot of time in his hands created...
    Another Disclaimer: I like OnePlus but I'm not a fanboy... And I'm not a part of some cult...


    OnePlus has a secret strength which is part of their strategy too...
    And it's called "Community"...

    Let me say this, OnePlus never created anything for the world, instead they created it for the community, and since those phones were good, rest of the world started to become a part of this ever growing community...

    This is why at any launch or press release, OnePlus staff will always say things like, "all this is because of our community", "we created this with our community", "we listened to your requests" and will always address this community everywhere...
    That is why OnePlus phones will always be shipped with the community app pre-installed, so that all the new users can get a chance to be a part of this...

    It all started with them creating this community before their first phone itself...
    They needed this community for the initial push that they needed, and that is why they asked this community about how to design their first phone...
    And once that was accomplished, they got a basic understanding about what users need and that's why they reduced asking that... But still continued to ask us only for the things that they were doubtful about...
    And for everything else, someone (usually Pete) just creates a thread so that it would feel like the community was a part in that process...

    They use this Community for constant feedbacks and then try to overcome all the flaws and embrace all the strengths...
    And that's why they keep asking us for the feedbacks and that's why they keep organizing these meetups...

    I've seen members, who are here since the community was created and that is why many of them feel like they have seen this company grow and somehow feel connected to this for the same reason...
    Me being relatively new, also feels like a part of this community and also wants to know how it felt like, when everything here was just starting...
    I never felt like this for any of my past phones!!!

    So just like this... I'll stop my thread...
    I know it looks like I was just getting started, but trust me... So is OnePlus... ;)

    These are few of my favorite threads from the staff members, which should be close to us all...
    1) A warm welcome from OnePlus
    2) What we stand for
    3) How will OnePlus make money
    4) Meet the OnePlus ROM
    5) Living up to Never Settle
    6) OnePlus software team daily life
    7) This one is a surprise... ;)
    Enjoy reading them...

    Also, OnePlus staff members are like our friends... And that's one of the best things...
    I wanted to do a shout out to all the dedicated staff members, but guess they all are busy with the OnePlus 6 stuff...
