    @erictjf urs is most properly to be kena duty tax or Sirim already, I have a friend experience on this, if you kena duty tax please check the price on it, if the price is around 150 just pay them, else If u apply Sirim it cost u 100, but it take 3-5 days to complete, dhl will charge u 10 buck per days while u apply that, the price is almost same. If u pay tax at least can get it faster.

    Just a suggestion, my friend have the same problem like urs now.

    All of us had spent insane amount of time waiting/chasing for invite. let's see why.

    OPO's attractiveness is its price, which is done via :
    1. sell direct (online) - remove the margin normally accorded to traditional retailers
    2. no marketing budget - through words of mouth, social media
    3. no or very thin margin on phone. make money from selling accessories - same as Air Asia's model
    Since the company is practically giving away the phone and make no money, at least initially, it will not be able to produce enough phone as there is no enough cash flow to increase the volume. For their suppliers, since the volume is low, they will not be able to offer a lower price, which will also mean that the cost of the parts are more expensive compared to others. Another way out is to rely on their supposing 'backer', OPPO to provide the extra funding. My guess is that OPPO is therefore selling the phone in China with perhaps more volume than the international edition as they isn't seem to be a shortage for the phone. Essentially, they are the same phone, with firmware differences, came from the same factory, ie OPPO.

    Given the above scenarios, OPO mayremain a niche product as the business models does not allow it to ramp up the volume without straining its cash flow. on point no. 3, how many of you who bought the phone actually bought the accessories too ? if no, then how are they gonna make money fast enough ? If the phones has been priced say as USD450, would the interest still the same ? i doubt it.

    Tech products like phone are obsoleted as soon as competitor comes up with a better spec, which might be as fast as 1 week (think Mi4) ! By then, many of us who are waiting for invite will re-look at the choices on hand to decide. The only way OPO can ride out this cycle is to continuously innovate by coming up with better spec's product. Question is, can they make enough money to be able to do that fast enough.

    To cut to the chase, if you want the phone now, consider getting form the gray market since the price different is negligible, about RM150 thereabout. The LTE difference does not affect us since we uses the same band here. The phone can also easily flashed to CM11s too.

    For those that is no super urgent in wanting a new phone, wait until you get the invite, then you evaluate your choices then. Since the phone is being shipping out from Hong Kong, why isn't someone think of hooking up with friends there instead ? HK uses the same charger type as ours, and you can ask your friend to declare it as 'gift' and avoid all those customs problem that created so much anxiety ?
