    Yes I believe they did need invites, but were given them.

    It was possible to sell many devices in the first days after start on August 11. Every day of persons interested will be less. On Ebay there is a speculation on invitations, very strong crush in turn for the first place... for Oneplus it is a failure.

    It's very easy for you to judge any company like this. Try being a entrepreneur and you'll know the challenges that come with it. Respect them for working hard to create a quality product. I know it's really tough to wait for the invite, and extremely frustrating, but I'd rather wait and get a better product than take one early with poor quality.

    Good luck with paying twice as much for another Android phone with bloatware ;)

    [i hope this reply is not going to be deleted]

    I am Member #39 because I witness how and why OnePlus join the Smartphone market.
    at that time, I am glad that i am still friend with Mr. Pei. "Carl".
    While i am keep criticizing OnePlus 's strategy and the way they creating hype.
    was clicked by him. ;)

    I like OnePlus's #NeverSettle before. but not now.
    They are #TooMuchCompromised.
    From what Mr. Pei said (and maybe he is right)
    "get hype or gtfo" :)

    If you like this trend , he will issue another update after few weeks that invites will roll out after three months due to some problems. That should calm your nerves down further. Is it not?

    Two things one can get from this post
    1. Product has bugs .. Credit to OP team for accepting the same as very few companies would do so.
    2. OP is trying to use ppl in the waiting list to do their marketing and will keep them as it is till they feel desired word of mouth is done. Plz note pplz are creating fake listing just to bump up their ratings.
    Anyways.. Ppl will not wait beyond a certain time. Up to OP tteamhow soon they can get over bugs and roll out

    Выдать 5000-50000 приглашения! Это успокоит нервы:) People have money and they want now, but not in 1-2 months.

    I suggest to OP, give out invites to all in the reserve list but ask them to forget about the OP2 .We will be satisfied watching youtube videos of OP2.

    I totally agree, they're MUCH smaller team than the other big players out there and it's a mammoth task.

    My big issue is that they made promises they couldn't keep and the lack of information is painful. I don't expect personal responses to every inquiry, but regular posts with VALUABLE information is a must in these situations.

    Just my 2 cents

    I seriously doubt whether Moto x style will be avaolable by 3rd sept. It is another dud.Maybe release some phones in the market for namesake and then back to slumber. It's global availability is doubtful by 3rd Sept. God, prove me wrong.

    Agreed, that's a good option too. However having seen the focus and dedication that Oneplus has for it's users and the sheer drive to give us the best User Experience I'd be more inclined to be with them.

    I have faith in OnePlus, things can go wrong and off-track sometimes but cursing is not the solution for prospective buyers.

    GODDAMMITTT !!!!!!!

    Waiting is not worth it. By the time OP2 is available new #HYPE will be created for the other phone OP wants to unveil in december (which will also not be available because someone did not do his job correctly at OP again).
    In retrospect after the #Hype finally dies everyone will wonder: why the hell was there so much hype for a mediocre product?

    Agreed! However, as you said, they have a smaller team, hence little difficult for them to make it happen faster, or communicate it to us :)

    Having said that, they could probably do with a couple of more people in the Communication team!
