    I completely agree. Like I got money pouring out my *** to just smash a phone I could just hand down.

    Thanks for reading this despite the thousands of messages about this topic.

    OnePlus, your invite system is actually making people changing their minds.

    Let me explain better: You asked us to help you spread the word and make people aware they had a better option. That's what I did and I was telling people just to wait the 23rd and they would have been happy they waited. My friends and the forum members' friends eagerly waited for the 23 to come as we suggested them.

    The 23 came and you showed to the world what you have.
    Some people I know liked the device a lot, some others were disappointed about the size, they were expecting a smaller phone as you yourselves stated the One would have been, but everybody was extremely disappointed they could not buy the phone and they had no real indication about when they would have been able to buy it. A few have already placed their orders for Nexus 5, Note 3 and Find 7.

    So, long story short: Give us precise info about REAL availability of your device, so that we can at least try to make our friends wait a bit longer. If you really wanted us to help you, select some of us random and send us some invites so that we can start showing it to the world, to REAL PEOPLE.

    OnePlus, you proud yourself of listening the community, well please really do, because if you don't most people will just walk away.

    I'll do my best to make people wait and I will patiently wait myself, but YOU ALSO HAVE TO HELP US.

    Thank you, OnePlus.

    You can find a lot of reasons actually, imperfection of the world, as one of them. Another reason may be lack of recycling programs from phone manufacturers. Another reason - outdated features of the phone, I saw a lot of markets that sell used, refurbished phones, most of which are just rubbish. Аnd most importantly, if I came to the phone manufacturers and he would have made me discount on a new model and dispose old friendly way, I would be only too pleased. but with chaos that is going on in mobile phone market, it probably is not possible.

    I won't smash. Just seems irresponsible in every way (not only safety. In fact, that is the least of my concerns). I would much rather sell it, keep it as a spare, or donate it. I love the oneplus, and I will purchase it, but I just don't agree with the tactics.

    Because that's what I think of everybody who smashes their phones without having been chosen yet, and nobody knows who will be picked.

    End of discussion and again, report me if you feel like it.

    P.S: I think the contest itself is IDIOTIC.

    Well, here is a thought what some clever guys might do:

    1) purchase a new phone from the list
    2) purchase additional insurance against loss or damage, which is nowadyas pretty cheap
    3) smash the hell out of the phone and record the process - it will be even more impressive if you smash a completelly new one right after unboxing
    4) use the insurance and get a new phone
    5) sell it as new
    6) get your new OPO

    I am not trying to initiate any insurance frauds and this is certainly not what I will do, but it is just an idea :) I will wait for my invite and get it the normal way....

    Yeah, good luck with making your insurance believe: "I don't know what happened, it just smashed itself into peices!"

    The whole point of this insurance is to be safe in a situation when you break the phone. I guess it will look pretty bad after you are done with it, but it migh look like a car drove over it or something simillar. Anyway you dont need to explain youself, you simply bring it and have it fixed or replaced, that is what it is for...
