    Hope you guys stay true to your mission. The price can go up, but so long as the objective is still true I don't think many people will mind.

    How good is the after sales service of other mfrs. Most of them have had years to set up a service network. OP is a fairly new player in the field, I guess it is only fair to allow them at least the end of this year to get their network right.

    It's not often you see companies open up about their finances, with their customers as if it were a casual conversational topic. Kudos.

    oooh..no..So you are saying that after couple of years you will increase your device prices..Will it be a gradual increase or a steep increase. because a 5-10% increase may not have a drastic effect on your demand else you may see the competitors eating your share..Just my opinion

    I think the product in its self is a giant. It stand tall so there's no need for cosmetic surgery and commercials. It can't be ignored

    I love the idea of the Humble Bundle and Kick Starter. Maybe OnePlus could open up a channel for donations? I'm certain people who support the company's mission would do so even with money. I think OnePlus is more about the idea of change and empowering people rather than simply a phone or physical device. That's what makes modern technology so exciting, provided corporate greed doesn't seep in and ruin everything.

    Thanks for the post......
    but on a different perspective it looks like u are going with penetration pricing , the old school technique....I will wish you dont turn out to be like other players who start treating customers like cash cow, instead of being together with customers
