    I Thought the community actually supported oneplus. But I see allot of bitter angry pooper scoopers in the forums. Complaining about everything.

    They don't seem to understand that oneplus is a small company so they can't produce a million phones and just sell them. They also have a fraction of the marketing budget of the big companies so they market with invites to create hype. Certain features need to be left out to keep the phone under $400. I bet if they added all the features these naggers complain about the phone would easily cost $600 and I'm sure they'd complain even more.

    A contest was just announced #wwydft2. And they started complaining again about doing stuff to spend their money or to do too much sh*t to get an invite. You can win an actual phone through the contest not an invite, a flipping phone! But nooo, they don't even bother reading, they just go straight into bollocks mode.

    I didn't buy the oneplus one, cause I never got an invite and I wasn't really active on the forums then, but with the op2 I was impressed and decided to become a part of the community to show my support, but damn, I gotta say I'm disappointed, I thought the community genuinely supported what oneplus was doing. At least that's why I decided to become a part of the community, to show my support and to get a great phone in the process.

    I say if you don't like what they're doing just GTFO or STFU...!!!

    Are you talking about NFC?
    If so, you mad bro?

    Add dual sim and add a slider switch for volume toggles, but remove NFC?

    Pretty shitty saving feature if you'd ask me..

    Personally I cant wait to buy it as it ticks all the boxes for me especially dual sim and if I see one more person go on about lack of NFC they need to be kidnapped, and made to watch Justin Bieber songs on repeat for eternity!

    Well, I'm new to these forums, but I'm a member of a few others. I just have to say, I haven't seen forums where people attempt to spam and cause divide like this because normally they can be fairly tight. But I don't know

    Now who's the bitter angry pooper scooper? You are.... Scooping about other bitter angry pooper scoopers! Take your own advice
    On a serious note though. Some of us has been through all of this before. We survived but barely. Luckily no one forces you to read one useless thread after another.

    be aware that there are a lot of trolls, partly sent by competitors. there is a very pleasant oneplus community on xda and it's dedicated threads. i agree 100% with you however, just wanted to hint you to a place where you find what you wrote you were looking for. btw we have 7 opos in the family and everyone is happy still, i even consider to purchase another one in addition to the "2" for my grand son. ( he's still a bit wild, so 250 laying in the pool is better than 400.- LOL )

    Nothing to worry about. This is about par for the course for this bunch of spoilt brats.
