    I wish you best of luck! Would really look forward to One Plus 2^2 a.k.a. One Plus 4. By then latest the business should be going flawless for a smooth 1 Plus X experience :)

    Well you're not really doing that if no one can use your phone except for you, you know what I'm saying?

    I completely agree with your strategy if rules are really followed. My wait list to get invite OP2 remain at 23000 from last 10 days. If invites are going to take such long time, not sure strategy will work in long time. I agree that you guys produce some best class phones, but they should not remain like hanging fruits for longer time since Mobile market is highly competent.

    Well that was a good read indeed, but I have a concern here.

    You have done quite a good job at attracting customers/fans, 5M is a huge number you know!
    However I feel that OP is having a hard time in keeping them, every moment I see people frustrated and leaving OP dreams behind. They opt for another phone in the market.

    I agree that keeping everyone satisfied is impossible, moreover most of the people don't even understand the system. Even after keeping this in mind, I see a lot of users(in fact fans) drifting away from OP, including current OP users, and the drift is huge. 5M would like a rather huge number when you count the number you actually can call customers/fans.

    What is your say on this?

    After one year I guess I can add another point of view. Usually, you give the money and you have the good. In between could be necessary a shipment and you'll have to wait for a fixed amount of time. So, what's "pending shipment" means? And why it last for an variable amount of time? Is this a system where you pay first, they build the good with that money and when is ready they send it to you?

    I appreciate your strategy, but at the same time, I am skeptic if you will remain like this once you establish yourself in the market. At the moment; wait and see.

    P.S. Carl, I am still waiting for my invite, can you please send me one?
