    Now that we are well into September with very little evidence of any immediate improvement in supply of OnePlus 2, should the company not abandon the invites and open sales to public. They have been successful in creating the hype and making their logo and name familiar to people.

    Pre-order and open sales would probably be the same considering that Oneplus can´t fill a warehouse and hope they all sell. So pre-order it is, that way you can at least buy the phone, instead of waiting for the invite you will be waiting for the phone itself and follow that process.

    At this stage, it does not matter anymore...
    As OP are just unable to produce enough units.

    Having preorder or open sales, will still mean months or years of waiting, but with the customers money in their pockets.

    Best solution is to scrap the OP2 and start again on OP3. And this time sort their production and make a real flag ship killer.

    Let's be honest, the invite system is a joke. I'd accept a pre order system wherby I pay for the phone and receive it within a set period of time.
    I am a oneplus one owner, but am considering jumping ship. 70,000th on the wait list translates to a frustrating wait. The fact you cannot predict how long you will have to wait is infuriating. It devalues the seriousness of the company in my opinion. I feel they are winging it and can no way supply the demand of the market.
    Did they not learn anything from the oneplus one release.
    What they do well is to stir up frustration from would be consumers who actually want to purchase..

    It's "relieve", not "releve".

    That figure of 5 million Is no way representative of the demand for the phone. Its probably aa 1/5 of that. People will have used multiple accounts to refer themselves to get bumped up the list.

    For intial one month its a nice marketing trick and it is good for creating hype. But keeping the slow invite system for a while will be a big disappointment... It s better to make it open sale after a month ...
