    OnePlus One hopefuls, start rejoicing as the company has finally decided to do away with the controversial invite system.

    Since its launch back in April this year, the OnePlus One has proved to be a tough nut to crack. People from around the world have been craving to get their hands on one, but the lack of an invite has caused many distress. However, OnePlus hinted at a shift to a pre-order system come October, which should mean that there’ll be invites no more.

    OnePlus typically seeds invites through contests and such held on its forums. Those that do purchase a OnePlus One through the official store also get invites that they can share with fellow to-be buyers. Even then, there’s a divide between demand and supply.

    Me??

    About time that a plan was created.... Build to actual demand so your factory knows how many to produce and when... Engineering 101.

    Get your revenue stream steady, invest in infrastructure, invest in R&D, build the next phone, make tons of cash.

    I am not sure why this wasn't done already

    I feel like they needed to do this in order to stay competitive with the moto x+1 and nexus 6/X. If not, a lot of their potential customers could have no patience and go for one of those phones.

    I purchased the phone two weeks ago so I wonder if I will still get 3 shareable invites prior to the change?
