Is demand really that high?

    I think demand is getting lower each day, many people bought other phone already or simply got invited

    I have been here since april 17th. David S. personally banned me for a week for being pretty vocal about the yellow screen.

    I don't argue that point but when you release numbers compared to what other companies sell on there first phones it just seems questionable. I'm a fan and I'm loyal. But if you allow people to see numbers, the numbers seem small compared to competition in these same markets

    Really, do you have any proof? I think that would be great news and make it easier to wait

    Well you can't realy say anything about these numbers since they are only from people who know about the phone and also care enough to join everything. If your regular customer who just walks in the phone store and buys what ever they are recomended would know about it and it was available the numbers of sold phones would be way more than any other company is selling. Anyway now we are just waiting for them to deliver to us most enthusiastic and i'm sure they sell 10x more of two when that time comes.

    Lets face the fact, keeping aside all the bad things, OPO is top high end Android, considering the price tag too every one wants it. It has almost everything that one wants. I gave up my Xperia Z2 for it cause it was heating up big time. And here we are wasting time blaming yellow tint........

    The % who are interested is dropping, we're seeing "can't be bothered someone have my invite" posts rather than just selling the invites, so the phone's age and the revealed hardware problems is eroding from the "must have" initial near-universal view.

    Could be, waiting for things you desire can lead you to think of possible explanation. But i think the demand is high [atleast in forums]. But i think once they pre-order system is up, OP has expanded to few more countries, and their production line and logistic issue are sorted the demand might increase.

    No wireless charging.
    Big (needlessly).
    For its size, no SD slot and not waterproof.

    Not everyone wants its as its big, that alone is putting off a big proportion. Especially as if you want a big screen you can get a Nexus 7 32GB for $160.

    Good point, just because your aware of the phone, doesn't mean you want to jump through all the hoops to get one and perhaps there are a million plus people on "stand by" just waiting for public release

    Can't be a flagship killer with these numbers, got to increase manufacturing capability. If it's stuggling meeting production, maybe the market should have been limited to one region first.

    They're probably holding off features for future generations like Apple has done for years

    For every interested in OPO, there 10x interested in Nexus 6.
    Of those waiting for OPO, a decent % will give when Nexus 5 price drop happens next month.

    OPO need to increase manufacturing by 10x-20x now. Their time is going and chance they fold I place now 50%.
