    the word will spreas itself , the name is rock solid, you will get there as a new top brand smartphone manufacturer , as you build quality and keep the price reasonable instead of the flag ships if you want in the end every factory needs to make money, keep in mind an old dutch saying "een snelle gulden is beter dan een langzame knaak" in other words make the profit small and have high sales rather then put the priceup and sales drop back

    I think soon many people will follow your thinking. Premium price demand for daily use devices is over with OPO I think.

    Oneplus already making MILLIONS you fools. I had a thread was closed in minutes to censor it.

    Oneplus is making anywhere between $130-$150 PER device. With est. 200,000 international version alone shipped in last 6 months, they have netted roughly $26-$30 MILLION in profit after cost of device JUST from international version.

    Oneplus costs about $200-$220 to manufacture, this figure is derived from costs of smiliar devices. Example: The Galaxy s5 costs $250 to manufacture yet it comes with better and more parts. Thus I can assume the cost to build a Oneplus is in the above price range. In fact, I'm sure it's lower but lets stay on the safe side.

    Oneplus parent company OPPO (The only investor in ONEPLUS) is a VERY large manufacturer and can manufacturer phones in the similar cost range as others.

    So Oneplus has roughly netted $26-$30 Million US dollars in PROFIT...This is from International version alone! Where is that money going?

    Some things to consider:

    OPPO ships finished devices to Oneplus, OPPO is the main and only investor in the company.

    Oneplus has no manufacturing plant, they have no large scale equipment, no warehouses, no machinery... no investment in any of that.

    Oneplus has no software, OS dev team. It's outsourced.

    Oneplus doesn't spend much on Marketing international version.

    Oneplus CHARGES FOR SHIPPING so logistics costs are low. They hire 3rd party shipping warehouses to ship around the globe.

    They have an office, handful of employees and that's it.

    Lets assume they spend $7-10 Million on paying Cynmod, logistics, rent, payroll and overhead costs..

    that leaves them with $20 Million dollars profit still.

    You bet your *** they're making money so my question is.... WHY THE LACK OF DECENT SUPPORT?????
