    Out of curiosity I'd just like to know the various types of costs involved in making The Beast. I'm not sure but making the Apple iPhone 5 had cost $238. I think so that would be without the marketing budget I suppose. So if any admin can enlighten me then it'd be great. If not, then I'm fine as well. :D

    Samsug galaxy s4 productions cost was 244$ if I remember correctly.. Without licences and marketing and everything else. My guess is that opo production doesn't cost much more.

    It would've been really cool if they did. But then it's okay we can live with it. Just hope they do tell it :D Because it would be really cool to compare their manufacturing costs to other companies. If not then even their budgets on marketing and other departments would be great. :D

    In all companies two costs hit the hardest: personnel and marketing. Marketing the OnePlus is I guess will not be, so if they can keep the personnel costs down, the net profit might even be only 20-25%, meaning they have that much more money to spend on the actual production costs.

    EDIT: Carl posted before me... I'll just leave my post nonetheless...
