    There is no transparency with this company, period. What a mess and they will lose a lot of sales with another disastrous launch just like lastbyear.

    Cc on hand waiting for invite.

    This however is mainly software and can be fixed from my living room.
    For hardware issues on an apple/samsung/... I go to the vendor and I know who to talk to (and put my fist on the counter), for OP I need to fly 1000s of km's to find somebody to talk to :)

    I haven't seen this anywhere else but OnePlus where you have to wait for the invite first and then order the phone and then wait for 2 weeks before it is in your hand. Also,I haven't seen the kind of build quality, and killer specs for half the price of other flagships but at OnePlus.

    Its does not set a good image among users. Sorry to say this but Oneplus has been making excuses since OnePlus One launch. It was the same story on invites and the eternal wait a year back.It was still acceptable then as you were a new startup on the block.

    Not anymore, when your name has been established, when Fans count on you and when competition is watching your moves closely and specially when you have gained experience and are in second iteration. For a company who is riding on its fan base for its marketing, you need to deliver more often than not else you know that little bad press overshadows the good one. However as it stands today, its more promised and less delivered.

    True Fans would still stick around for some more time as what you offer is unmatchable in the market but OnePlus needs to be more careful on the timelines and issues this time.

    A perfect product is impossible to build but to even reach closer to that takes time so please take it before you make announcements and excite the fans. Creating #HYPE is good but such incidents would just kill it in no time.

    Yes you are right. But the outcome is the same isn't it? Only difference is that you may have to wait for a couple of weeks more with OnePlus. But given the price you pay OnePlus for the product, I think its a fair trade off.

    Better send invite to all eligible make delay in processing and shipment.because if it happen like this then we Will waiting for the phone with some hope. But now our frustration is because of that invite actually I am waiting for this phone from March 2015. Now this situation is a real stake like when the issue will resolved and when they will start rolling invite and when I will get that invite. This even make a die hard oneplus fan to turn is head. I don't know wat to do now:(:(:(

    Agreed when you say launch date it means its ready to ship, or at least ETA if there is a delay.
    I guess I am like everyone on here just fustrated.

    Not really as the software issues you can have also with OP. And if the phone gets lost in the package service you're f****d bigtime. If my samsung fails I demand a replacement phone if they need to sent it away for 2 weeks!
