    but i really wanted to let you guys know at OPO that you lost a customer.

    I waited. I really did. I've followed your progress for months as i suffered with my Galaxy S II which i've had to unlock and flash with unofficial CM 10.2. It works good but its laggy and the battery lasts 2 hours. And it is prone to overheating.

    So I waited.

    Welp, the Google I/O came and went. No new nexus. quite alternatively they used the Nexus 5 as a sort of benchmark for the proceedings. And, then they announced Nexus mirroring to TV via the Chromecast.

    That was it. The nexus 5 was available and in stock last night (32 gig). The chromecast was available and in stock (with $25 extra play store credit). So i couldn't wait anymore.

    I would have used your device happily for a number of years, as I can be quite the loyal customer. But you waited too long. And I know all about being a fledgling company and all of the other reasons why. I just wanted you to know that regardless of what happened on your end. You lost a customer.

    I dont know if you need to find a different way to release phones, or maybe find someone within the industry that can better predict stock levels. But, well. Had you released an invite to me before the Google I/O i would have gone with you. But you didn't. I think that ultimately releaseing your phone to the general public after the Google I/O will end up loosing more customers.

    Good luck. And I hope your product does shake up the industry.

    I'll check you guys out in another two years when i'm ready to upgrade.

    Most People also feel like this. But then again they feel like they have already spend too much time on this forum to throw it all away.

    Agreed on all acounts - sorry to hear but if I wasn't off contract and in more desperate need of a phone I'd have jump ship long ago. You gotta do what you gotta do - take it easy and like folks said, keep an eye on your emails, you never know when hell will finally freeze over.

    Exactly I am too involved to stop now

    I had someone tell me if i spent as much time flipping burgers then being on this forum I could buy both phones (IDIOT) why do people make statements with no proof and just say random dumbness

    Anyway I wanted to laugh so hard I work as a Nurse Nightshift I don't have to explain my social status to anyone people need to get a fking clue on here I could spend a whole day on here that's my business at the end of the day what you eat don't make me shit so why even say anything lol

    @Milad You understand though when you put time into something don't be a ***** and quit follow it through lol

    Waiting is really hard and I have considered jumping to the Nexus 5 a few times already. I really think that there will be a Nexus 6 this year though so I am waiting for that.

    Good post, I feel many people will execute a similar path to yourself. I myself will more than likely be going the same route, I just have a little bit more time to wait. I NEED a new phone by the end of July. If no invite comes my way in time to get one by then, it will more than likely be a Nexus 5 I go with.
    Enjoy your phone.

    Definitely not being a dick there, there is some much time you can wait for based on needs. Enjoy the Nexus 5, good phone to have!
