    An interesting article on opo by quartz.
    "OnePlus is a few steps behind Xiaomi on this front—the company told Quartz it aims to sell 3 to 5 million phones by the end of this year (Xiaomi is targeting 80 to 100 million phones). OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said last year the company unexpectedly turned a profit, but didn’t discuss specifics."

    OnePlus and Xiaomi are betting on an untested business model. They both aim to sell handsets for almost no profit, to gain market share and edge out competitors like Samsung. After that, they hope to earn the bulk of their profits off of other things they sell to these smartphone users.

    On OnePlus’s online forum, co-founder Carl Pei outlined three possible avenues for making real money:

    • Accessories—it sells goods besides smartphones.
    • Services—it sells software that people pay for, or that companies pay to get pre-installed.
    • Scale—it sells enough phones so the company can buy components on the cheap, and maintain a low-but-healthy price point. "

    after reading this I think that opo being just an one year old company are trying their best to meet up the demands. also that the flagship killer of 2016 will be deliverd to each and everyone by year end period, no doubt about it.
    and working on an untested business model of almost no profit and running a big company which is just 1 - 2 years old some minor issues like USB type-c are normal. Still they coming out and admitting the problem is a good thing. Handling this issue might delay the production but I just hope when my device comes its perfect one with no defects.

    I can understand. As i have already said, after getting invite, it will month time to receive mobile. But what is the deadline for invites, that is our question?

    I started @ 127852 on day of the VR reveal. was at 130671 a week back and today @ 140822... at this rate,, its gonna be a long wait.. I was hoping a faster invite system but this seems similar to the OP1. I guess will look at it again later, if this invite system taken off for a purchase. Else there are similar config options available.. yes costlier than the OPT but .. do we have a choice. Enough of the hype for this one

    I'm done with this mess. Just take me off the list. I am doubtful this company will last too terribly long in the future. The price is no longer worth the wait.
