    jammerjames, Nov 25, 2014 :
    Hi all from the UK. As of last Friday (21st November) I had never heard of a OPO. I was scanning through the T3 tech magazine e-mail and it listed the '10 best smartphones of 2014'. I was thinking of upgrading my Galaxy S3 (to an S4) and checked out the list. At around number 6 was this OPO. I liked what I read. I did some research & checked several review sites (isn't the internet wonderful!) and they were all positive about the phone, especially the price. There were some issues raised (the dreaded yellow banding and some dodgy sales techniques, the poor customer service). I came to this website, saw the 'unusual' ways of getting a phone, competitions or invites. I signed up for an account and dived into the forums. It looked as if it would take a long time to get an invite. I replied to half a dozen 'invite' threads but did not expect to get one. I got on with my life for a few hours and then checked back with the forums. I was staggered, I had an invite! (A big thank you to member 'i860', I don't know what I did to get one!) I ordered my phone late Friday afternoon and today (Tuesday 25th November) the postman was waiting for me when I got home from work with my OPO. 5 days (including a weekend) from order to delivery! Fantastic. I have set it up and had a play and all seems well and now it's charging. That's it. Just wanted to share. If and when I get some invites to give out I will put them straight on the forum.

    Inspiring. I'm also new to the forum and to the OPO, in fact when I get one it will be my first android device EVER!

    I agree. I don't know why they chose me amongst all the others asking for an invite, but I am grateful they did.
