    My OnePlus memory was getting my first phone, the OnePlus One. The design was amazing and I loved the Bamboo Cover.

    First of all tell you congratulations that you have spent five years. I'm excited to know when your Companion Plus Seven is out. The day you pick out the plus seven, I will buy the phone from the market, I will not wait one day. I'm excited when you're releasing One Plus Seven. I hope you will tell me through reply, when will I release the One Plus Seven.

    So my first very memorable 'OnePlus Moment' was the 'click' to order my OnePlus 2, one of the first without an Invite :) my first OnePlus device ... followed by several great gatherings ... EuroTour OP3 in Düsseldorf ... ShotOnOnePlus Academy in Berlin ... OP5T/OP6 Events in Cologne ... getting a lot of 'likes' for Photo Contest contribs ... sometimes winning ;) ... getting into contact with many many forum-buddies and Photo-Enthusiasts around the World ... so there are plenty of memorable Moments with OnePlus and with my OnePlus devices (2|3T|5T) over the years :)

    OnePlus ... congrats and go for the next 5 years

    My favourite moment with OnePlus was when I managed to get an invite for my OP1.
    I friend of mine,who is a certified genius (mensa member) and whom I trust, had got a second hand OP1.He showed it to me and recommended it. I then started my quest for an invite and in November I eventually got one.
    I was really really happy.

    All my phones (OP1 OP3 and OP6) are still going strong.

    That's an amazing Story... Dec 17 is my birthday too and I feel like I belong with OnePlus side. I'm someway emotionally connected to OnePlus

    My best memory started from the day when my friend called me and said "Hey, checkout a company called OnePlus One. They seem interesting" and I googled it to find an amazing phone OMG.. Sandstone finish... Best in class Specs and CYANOGEN OS.. It had everything best and yet priced so much lesser than competitors. I immediately had a thought they seem different.. They just don't want to sell blocky phones, they're on to something.. I was in final year of my schooling so I can't ask for a mobile... But getting hands on an OnePlus was my distant dream since that first day I Googled...

    And after waiting for months...and after numerous efforts to convince my parents that I need a better mobile after coping with a Gingerbread 512MB RAM android device for 1.5 years, The time has finally arrived. I managed to get enough cash but still some bucks short for an OnePlus X and I thought I can manage.

    I avoided taking food at the restaurant when hostel food was bad, avoided hanging out with friends. Saved money every possible way I can. Then I applied for some scholarships hoping atleast one would give me some bucks. And one trust managed to give me 1000 bucks (Indian rupee) and now I can manage to buy OPX but can't get a case, Temper glass or headphones but as I take care in handling I decided to but those protection later after buying the phone. I was still very few bucks short even for OnePlus X but I applied and was waiting for an invite...



    Everyday at the gap of atleast an hour I'll refresh my mail, hoping for that magical word... There was this industrial tour planned from my college where I need to pay 2500 bucks.. And this time my parents sent me the money and asked me to take this fun trip as some of my friends managed to ask my parents send me to this trip.

    I was in dilemma... I badly wanted to enjoy with my friends but also was imagining a proper good looking cases, screen protectors that this could buy....

    That was the last day to play the Trip fee.. I was getting ready to college from my hostel room, wallet was loaded with 3000 bucks and was putting on my shoes.

    A notification arrived in my phone. I looked at it, Removed my shoes, went inside, took 2500 from my wallet and placed it in the cupboard, again put my shoes on, locked the door and happily went to college though the working timetable sucked that day.

    The notification said: "You're Invited"


    Now I'm a proud OP6 user and my memories and struggles to get my hands on this and that feeling while opening the Amazon package and starring at the OnePlus box, reading what's printed on all sides completely and then slowly unpacking one by one just to live that moment longer would take much space... So I'll stop here ;)

    Beautiful story of perseverance, for this journey is very risky and full of danger. How you have managed to set up a factory that produces these spectacular high-end tech devices, is something that I simply cannot begin to imagine. Hell of a ride, indeed.

    My first experience with you was with Oneplus 5, a fantastic smartphone. With Oneplus 6, for the first time in my life I have a smartphone where my entire music library fits. So far, it has been an incredible experience. All of you are to be congratulated.

    My only request is that - regardless of success and fortune that you all deserve - never fall into temptation to become indifferent to your consumer needs or forget ethics and kindness, like MS and Google, for example.
    Establish a new paradigm in the industry and do only good to people, no matter what.

    Regards from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil ;-)

    P.S. I'm sure if you set up a factory here in Brazil would be very successful, because our people are avid for high-end smartphones and your price is very competitive.
