    Doesn't really sound like a big issue, I have the Lumia 930 now and the vibration is so strong like it's almost ringing. I don't really like it, it gets me noticed in every lecture lol !

    Can't disagree at all about being give a choice between OPO and OP2, i'd choose the One every time. Far better device in almost every respect. It loses only slightly on specs, but those specs are so poorly implemented in the 2 that the One i still a better choice.

    Oneplus made an even bigger mistake losing cyanogen as its OS partner. It is the single greatest fuckup in start up company history. The cm12 or 12.1 has castrated this phone back to the stone ages. Camera sucks balls now. Video recording goes in and out of focus and all the options for both are gone. Network connectivity is ****** unless you are standing under the stars. All this crap and cm is still better than oxygen OS. Give me my ******* money back you asshats.

    Great advice to someone who was unaware of the issue prior to purchasing the phone.

    No offense taken at all. I had a laugh as well. To put it in that context, if this phone was used as a vibrator...it would need to be held at an angle since the phone doesn't seem to spread the motor function throughout the device. It'd be like strategically placing a d***o. ;)

    Amen. When I heard about the breakup I became instantly less interested in OnePlus and more interested in Microsoft's potential partnership.

    I think it is obvious they rushed the Op2 just like apple does every other generation and sometimes every 2 to three. The op2 is for fanboys/girls only.

    It's simply not a good phone when you have the new Moto Style for the same price point. That's a rock solid device. This one really took the wind from my sails because I think OP has a ton of potential. If you have the choice between Moto and OP, it's a no-brainer...really.

    I realize this but a phone should not get impossibly worse like it has. One of the 1st questions I had before I bought this phone is "how is the camera?" Something Samsung has been offering since the captivate is great photos and video. The answer was awesome. Since then the camera is ******* impossibly horrible. Video is a joke.

    Now oxygen OS is like a child programming how to open a cereal box... Stupid. Too many ego's got in the way and nobody could see the bloody light.

    Still, "castrated this phone back to the stone ages" is a little extreme, when there are many users getting a pretty satisfied experience. You can't expect any smartphone manufacturer to get their OS/UI right the first go, man. I'm not a fanboy at all, but I don't think you should judge that harshly. They are a new company. They have tons of issues to sort out, work flow and talent pool and everything. It didn't take Samsung or Apple or HTC to get their shit right in two product releases. It sure didn't help that they lost CM either, but if you were them, what would you have done? They made the ballsy decision of going ahead and trudging into unsafe waters - being in control of their own OS/UI. They were sh*tting their pants along the way. They weren't even sure if the OP2 would work out. A week before the product release, they released a series of pictures of all their higher-ups in different fields of the product, acknowledging that very uncertainty. At the risk of unpopularising their own product before its own launch. How many companies would do that?

    Im just saying, there's more to judgement than simply judging it for what it plainly is now. Let them roll out OTAs, then decide if it is a flop or not. They have never said that it is a perfect phone, regardless of how provocatively worded their current tagline is for the OP2.

    Most ROMs let you reduce the vibration. But you can't fix a week part.

    This has been explained time and again. Its a hardware difference that you can't solve in software and why the **** would anyone want to increase the hardware cost of an ANDROID device to make it support APPLE headphone controls. If you like Apple that much, get an uphold, but dont blame OnePlus for not catering to Apple fanboys

    Have to agree, after reading various threads of people whinging and moaning about the OP2, i got slighlty nervous about my order but i recieved my OP2 yesterday and i cant put the thing down. Ive got the Apricot wood on the back which feels lovely to touch but overall the phone feels fantastic to hold. I really do feel it is a premium product in those terms, sure there are things missing but you cant have eveything im afraid.

    Posted with my OP2 whilst caressing it in my pocket :oops:

    Death threats? Where are the moderator's?

    1 There will always e competition in this market, and OP will never be #3.
    2 You putting them down for not including proprietary hardware and that's stupid. Don't increase the cost of MY device. Just buy a freaking converter.
    3 Go tell Apple to support Android style headphone buttons and let me know how far you get

    Worse customer experience for not supporting a proprietary add-on designed for a competitors device? Get real. You'll find almost no one (if anyone) supports that shit. But a damn adaptor and quit bitching.
