    You're pretty much right. What I really wanted was for someone to tell me that I'm right, AND open my eyes to everything else around me (Oneplus One, other phones). I guess it's my way of contemplating my options.

    Honestly it's because I watched Oneplus contradict itself over the period of the month before the launch, by implying that it would a 5inch chassis. (I don't care if they technically didn't lie they still heavily implied it.) By implying that at least 1000 people will have a One by the end of May. By promising us a storm of invites. (Judging from the people who posted something, barely a drizzle occurred) In other words, I don't have faith in Oneplus, but I have faith in The Oneplus One.

    There are several methods to convert a "Regular edition" to a GPE. YouTube SakiTech for more info. He has several great methods to do it on the M8.

    I get your feeling. I find the company to be a bit unorganized and whatnot. But the phone, when it's available to the general public, will be amazing. It's gonna be worth it.

    I got banned from my other OnePlus Forums account for saying I am tired of waiting. OnePlus has some stupid ideas.

    I find they just have a lack of experience and organization, to be honest. For example, their marketing strategy worked great, but they weren't ready for the tsunami of invite-wanters.

    Yeah, eh? And I understand the China thing, with the 1.3m phones. It's their home country. But if they could have had even half that ready for the rest of the world... dreams would have come true. :p

    I don't understand why international release was so undermade. I understand why in china they made so much (Demand is so high) I understand why they chose 5.5 inches. (In china, phablets sell more than smaller phones) But I dont understand why they would turn down releasing more in US, Canada and europe. In Europe, when converted, they would sell the one for 60% more than how much they sell it for in China. (As of a month ago.) I just hope it changes until the end of june.

    The S5 is a good phone even if it lacks of innovation about aesthetics. But it costs too much! This is the only great defect. And what about TouchWiz? I got Samsung phones for about 4 year: never had TW for more than 5min on them.

    2gb of ram and touchwiz are my reasons not to buy it. Ugly design is also major let down, but if everything else would be superb it doesn't matter.
