Invite system vs Shipping time. Here is the joke

    I just figured how OnePlus made it invite-less.

    Remember that old invite system where nobody could order ? While this system was in place, the phone would ship on the next business day, if not same day. Now when you order the OnePlus 3, you have to wait 2 weeks before it gets dispatched.

    My point here is that OnePlus hasn't gotten better. It's still the same system, they produce the least phone as possible just to try to fullfill all the orders but they are still unable to produce a little more phone so they can ship it as fast as any other reputable brand would do.

    I have ordered on July 28, which has an expectation dispatch on August 10. That being said, my phone is probably not even produced or built at the moment.

    Current new orders will be dispatched in 4 weeks ! Insane!

    As of July 29 : Still not dispatched
    As of August 1 : Still not dispatched
    As of August 2 : Still not dispatched
    As of August 5 : Still not dispatched
    As of August 8 : Still not dispatched

    The one I ordered also had a 2 week expected ship date and it shipped 3 days after I ordered it. Granted that was basically a release date order.

    Hello I hope you are doing well, please answer this question I have tried to get an answer but no one answers. Ok here's my issue, All my other android phones have made a sound indicating an increase/decrease in the volume when on the home screen for example. What I'm trying to say is that when your phone is unlocked and you press up or down on the volume button a rectangular box showing the volume level pops up. Up to there everything is fine. And in a lot of phones when you press on the volume and that what i just described pops up it will make a "ding" sound indicating the change in volume (A sort of change in volume feedback). However, my oneplus 3 doesn't make the sound indicating the increase/decrease in volume. Since no one I know owns this incredibly awesome phone, I cannot compare it and see if it is supposed to be like that or not and support wasn't really helpful when it came to answering the question on whether it was normal or not. Help Please, in other words I'm just asking if your oneplus 3 makes a ding sound indicating higher or lower volume levels when you start to press up or down on the volume button. Thank you for reading this please answer if you understand what I am asking or if I need to clarify more?

    What were you expecting? There was a good reason for the invite system, but folks kept whining about it, so they ditched invites in favour of longer time till dispatch. It wouldn't take a genus to see this one coming.

    I ordered my OP3 at June 16th and got it in the morning of June 24th. My estimated shipment day was June 23th and the estimated arrival was July 1st, so you can't take these estimated dates serious, at least when the OP3 was released.

    @G_Wally_Proenza_KKVE I think you hit the wrong thread :). Other than that, my OP3 doesn't make these volume increase/decrease sounds, so I think your phone has no malfunction.

    Stop complaining. It hasn't even been 4 business days since you ordered. If you are expecting it to be shipped out on the day you ordered, you must be crazy

    Estimated dispatch date and estimated delivery date usually gives more time than actually required. Both are automated when you place your order.

    Carl has already stated that the OP3 would be running into inventory issues in the future in an interview I watched.

    I disagree with you regarding the invite system. The current system is so much better than the invite system.

    no sound, probably by design, not a bug.
