    Agreed! more on Wikipedia

    "The OnePlus company was founded on 16 December 2013 by former Oppo vice president Pete Lau and Carl Pei.[3] According to the Chinese government's documentation, the only institutional stockholder in OnePlus is Oppo, although Lau has denied that OnePlus is a wholly owned subsidiary of Oppo.[4]"

    Haha, this is just grand... Empty promise upon empty promise, delay after delay... Seriously, this is beyond ridiculous. I'm sure the twats at HQ get off on their so-called "hype". But in the meantime, the product will once again turn out mediocre, customer service non-existent and waiting lines long. Alas, I still hope for an invite, but might well have another phone before it gets here, looking at other Chinese dual-sim phones as we speak.

    Hi Carl,

    "Word of mouth is extremely important for OnePlus." I agree, and obviously you guys are doing your best to ensure that the OnePlus Two is an all-round hit.

    However, this being said, repeated launch issues such as this bring bad publicity through "word of mouth". I remember reading a review of the OnePlus One last year which called it "the best android smartphone you can buy" followed by "if you can"... While I'd already purchased it and loved the device, a lot of friends and colleagues who wanted one were extremely disappointed.

    A year later, as I watch history repeat itself, I can't help but think of the quote "great ideas require great execution" and realize that while the ideology of OnePlus (and your ideas) is fantastic, you have always been let down by your execution of the same.

    I hope you realize that the invite system is a flawed attempt that looks less like a supply chain management exercise and more like a marketing hype creation tool. And you had two attempts at it! That's two times too many, my friend. If supply chain is that crucial to your company's growth, I think it doesn't hurt to try options such as "flash sales" - announce a limited number of products to be sold on a certain day and sell them. Repeat it as many times as you have stock, while gauging customer responses to predict future demand.

    Bottomline: Stop, and think! You're alienating a vast majority of your fans (and customers) by herding them like sheep. Its a shame that such an exciting company falls short of reaching even modest expectations...

    I'm as excited about the OnePlus Two as I was about the One, I even advance-ordered multiple cases and accessories specifically with the new device in mind - USB Type C cables, drives and such. And now? I don't have an invite, and I don't know when OR if I will get an invite! This has to stop.

    A OnePlus Fan
