    "I wouldn't trust a smartphone that is made in China" is a common response that I get.

    "Oh is that so? Where do you think your iPhone was made then?" Is the standard response they get.

    "Well, 2.5 GHz Quad Core and 3GB RAM, cost me 300€"
    "You're kidding me, right?"

    And another guy:
    "You probably got the best phone in our class." (Fun Fact: IT class)

    Friend: I know Oneplus One.

    Friend: no, not at all
    Friend to another friend: He is going to buy a Oneplus One!!
    friend 2: Dafuq??? iPhone 6 plus?????

    Me: Sweetie, I'm getting a new phone...
    Wife: What's wrong with your old one?
    Me: The descriptor you picked for it is way too accurate.

    (It's a first-gen Note that lags and restarts at random)

    LOL! Hit it right on the head. I got mostly incredulity when I described the phone and how I planned to get one. "A Chinese company is actually saying they're doing you a favor by allowing you to spend your money on their phone? Riiiiiight. Take your chances, idiot." This morning, three of them, diehard Samsung guys, were salivating over my OPO and begging me to get them invites. The size and sleekness catch people's eyes.

    Literally disbelief. They think it is a junk phone. They call it a scam. Whole lot of hate usually.

    Thanks for the response so far!

    I'm really enjoying some of these stories.

    I did expect a lot of indifferent no care ones also. I'm ultimately looking for how US carriers are also reacting.

    You guys are great!

    Most people are interested in it, but they also think it's too big. I do not particularly care about it, as I have big pockets, but I can see how it's a problem for some people, especially girls, whose pants tend to have smaller pockets.

    In general, the reception has been pretty positive, especially fancy tricks like Screencast, or the slow-motion filming :)

    Before iPhone 6 Plus release:
    "Wtf is that?"

    After iPhone 6 Plus release:
    "Ohhhh shit you got the iPhone?!"

    (have a case so they can't tell...I guess?)

    Ppl: Is that the OnePus one?

    Me: Yes.

    Ppl: Can I see it? (with my hands?)

    It's like a hot hooker, everyone wants to touch it.
