    and a horde of 1+ fanboys until then .... but so far it seems they actually earned them (in contrast to this rotten apple society) ;-)

    Nice to see this aggressive approach that defies the competitors but remenber you cannot go on and on just with financing because Samsung, LG and others can play (some are) the same game for much longer. You have an amazing product that frees users from tradional limitations. Follow the users they will give you their money if the product maybe not perfect but right for their needs :)

    Impressive, refreshing openness. I hope you are able to keep this up and make it work and benefit us all - you innovators who are doing it and us who want the best from a smartphone in an efficient package, without the bull**** marketing etc. of other manufacturers.

    That's very informative! and now that I think about it, it sounds like a good way to start. I only hope you can keep going with the same motivation and the same motto.

    Keep it up!

    I love the idea of the changable backs. Looking forward to seeing what other accessories Oneplus comes up with. Customization is king!:)

    they forgot to add the factor of people getting tired, the hype won't last forever and smarphone battle field is quite scary.

    Making a GOOD product is more important than thinking how to earn money. Oneplus should focus on how to make the best product in the market, money will go to the company which can produce the best production with the best price.

    I worry less about their profitability - I think there's probably good demand for a device like this and it seems as though they're able to scale production and marketing effectively. I worry about when/if the big boys will start to litigate to slow things down. Its one thing for Moto/Samsung to battle with Apple about patent infringements. I imagine it would be another thing entirely for one of those giants to square off against Oneplus.

    Nice! I must say I like the transparency. Although other companies also tend to be rather transparent on this subject... 700€ smartphone... Think I know how they want to make money^^
    Still, it's really appreciated. Fresh approach, openness, awesome smartphone, ... Seems too good to be true o_O
    Am I dead? Is this heaven? Or will I never get an invite, so hell?

    As an ex-entrepreneur I understand the approach. Doing business differently, looking at things from another perspective, try and change/do things one step at a time, have a mission besides profit... Above all, this information comforts me in my choice never to have settled, until now :) Even if there are quite some really good and cool products on the market, there hasn't been any that was worth buying (in my opinion). I have the distinct impression my wait has almost come to and end. For the first time I have the feeling that this is indeed "the one". High quality product, extremely fair price, company vision and strategy I can adhere to. If support is also what I expect it to be (read > NOT the support bigger companies "provide") you'll have one extra loyal faithful customer for life! Eager to buy, hope it'll be an early Christmas this year :p Keep it up OnePlus
