    Because we don't have a manufacturer that gives us a nearly stock experience with 4GB of RAM, an High-End Qualcomm SoC and unbelievable ROM-Support and reasonable pricetag for a 64GB Flagship...

    Seriously OnePlus just sell that siht!

    I was never trolling, if you read how serious my post was.
    Given the rick-rolling, the identity of the troll is clear.

    Yup, hence why one of the key details that I mentioned being 'a near-stock ROM'.

    Eh, let's put it at complaining. There's been a ton of other threads like this, showing appreciation to Oneplus' hard work yet disappointment that it couldn't perform

    Sure you might not get this locked, but the message you're trying to convey has been conveyed before

    True; but it's always worth fighting for, right?

    If nothing comes from it, nothing is lost; if something is gained, however, then everyone is rewarded.
    :)

    ...but as youngmouss highlighted, there are always other devices.
    Given what OnePlus were able to achieve with the One, they have every reason to get to the top of my list again; but if not, sure, there are always other options, albeit few with a well-optimised and well-supported near-stock experience [basically just OxygenOS, PA and true stock Android these days].

    The mature thing for OnePlus to do is not to censor a respectful and professionally-written post and instead take it as key constructive criticism. After all, without criticism, one doesn't have identified points to improve on. I view it as the most helpful and kind thing from a supporter/fan/customer perspective -- the ones who criticise constructively for the benefit of all.

    The new Moto X is ugly as **** to be honest. It has the 808 and 3GB of RAM, ZERO ROM support and costs 70$ more (16GB vs. 16GB). Also if you know Motorola you know that their cameras are really really bad compared to anyone else. Ouh and did I mention the smaller battery?

    The OnePlus 2 is (imo) the best smartphone you CAN'T buy! ;)

    If the S-Pen is an important feature you need TW. Writing on the blank screen is something so simple and useful I can't believe they did not bring that forward before.

    Indeed. Feature-wise they've done a great job and all credit to them, they've taken out a heck of a lot of the bloat compared to a couple of years ago ...but from an enthusiast standpoint it still feels a bit icky.
    I'd feel dirty using it. :p

    Just think, it's only 2 days in and they are already coming up with excuses. Just wait to hear about the issues with production of displays, and Oh, we have some faulty fingerprint scanners. See you guys in 2016.

    It's actually gotten better with each iteration. I do prefer stock but on the Note series TW does add value by what it provides for the S-Pen, multi-tasking and the new live video feed via YouTube sounds pretty cool.
