    Yep, it still blows me away that they could (a) underestimate demand by 20-30x and then (b) publicly admit to it as if it is something to be proud of, or an excuse for, well, everything. That is not a good thing. With all their much vaunted status as social media and marketing visionaries, how can they get their market numbers so wrong...So when they say they will sell 3m phones this year, will it actually be another 1-2m or 60m?

    Mistakes in order of magnitude are rarely a good thing, especially when that mistake as the unintended consequence of making people think you are incompetent. Everyone will need to rethink that "How OnePlus will make money" thread, but I am not sure if they are closer to profitability or farther from it. The sudden change in outlook could also explain the rise of battery issues that seem to be plaguing the forum as of late because they are changing their business model on the fly. The crucial mistake that they maybe making is to buy into their marketing hype. It could spell disaster. On the other hand, transparency for once. Not really the best place to try out new things.

    I did find it interesting that the international market is the safety net for sales in China. I reverse of the reporting of US companies, where China is a market where companies can turn to move past breaking even. As Looper says, "China is the future." Seems like you chose correctly.

    This made me laugh...saw this motto on the side of a bus being picked up by casino operator, The Venetian...they should do a joint promotion...like to gamble?...buy an OPO!!

    #NEVERSETTLE FEATURING DAVID BECKHAM
    The Venetian Macao projects Opulence and Excitement; the world-class experiences and the genuine hospitality are borne by the NEVER SETTLE attitude of always striving for more, consistently achieving the impossible, and tirelessly staying ahead of the rest. David Beckham, featured in the brand TVC, is the perfect personification of the NEVER SETTLE spirit.

    Not yet...probably good to see the issues thread(s) for a bit first. Are you on oxygen now? Good to do a reset before or after the OTA you think?

    Heyyy mates! How 'r you? I come here also to ask your same questions, I'm still on CM11 now, how's you experience on Oxygen? and right, do you think a reset would be necessary to avoid strange problems after?

    Right now I'm already having some casual troubles with processes that terminates in a casual way and also some apps that drain my battery more then other (also if they're under PrivacyGuard and Greenify)

    What do you think about these?

    :)

    On oxygen. I would do the reset after. Who knows why. Superstition?

    Hi there!

    Little confused, but perhaps try a factory reset, which helped me a fair bit with Barry drain in 11S? I skipped Oxygen, as not rooted and not sure about GFE support for that Rom.

    So, I read some reviews, seemed ok, and bit the bullet and just flashed. So far this thing is rocking Lollipop and UI is noticeably smoother and faster...awesome, it does feel like a new phone again! Only downside is I seem to have lost mobile data toggle (without root) in tasker...but apparently, Lollipop has smarter power and data management without needing to toggle data manually or with apps...let's see. No factory reset yet, will monitor battery tmrw.

    Fished this morning. Really hoping it's battery is better than oxygen where I was getting 4 hrs after getting 6 with euphoria. CM is aesthetically unpleasing to me so I need to make some adjustments when I get the chance. Still don't get the middle circle with smart launcher. Weird

    Well, David has passed it on to some other team and said it should be sorted "next week"...I'll believe it when I see it...At least one other prize winner is still being ignored though...
