Standard shipping is faster than Priority?

    I ordered OnePlus 3 with accessories on 14th - at the same time the VR launch was held. My shipping method was PRIORITY. Estimated dispatch date was 17th... today it’s 20th and my shipment is still pending (and dates have dissapeared from order section). I have seen a lot of costumers who bought OnePlus 3 with standard shipping already has their phones. In conclusion I paid extra for longer waiting? Really dissapointed.

    This is always the case, which is why I didn't pay extra this time!

    This is what can happen when you order accessories with the phone, most likely those are not in stock at the moment and your order waits for them. My priority order was in my hand on Thursday, so can't really say that priority would be slower than standard :)

    I found this out WAY back when I ordered my OnePlus One at launch. Pay for it to get to me sooner, took longer. Makes sense... o_O

    Nice to see somethings stay the same...

    I didnt order accessories; just the phone itself, and my screen is exactly the same- pending shipment. I used priority as well.

    So....do you really think Adam can/will help all members who paid for priority delivery and are still facing "pending shipment"?

    Well, from what i've read from various users about delays... It's most likely because you ordered accessories with your phone.
    In a way, it makes sense, as preparing a unique order with multiple items takes longer that just shipping a single box, regardless of how fast it will be delivered afterwards.

    And "express delivery" works, as I know of some people who paid for it and already received theirs, while I'm yet to received mine with standard shipping. (EU)

    It seems to be inconsistent. I order my OP3 plus a back cover with priority shipment on15 juni 2016 19:48:42 BST and it was delivered within 48 hours.
    That is in The Netherlands BTW.

    I fell for the priority shipping once when I ordered the OPO. My buddy who lived a few blocks from me ordered using regular and got his phone 3-4 days before I did lol. This time I got the regular and got a nice tempered glass screenprotection instead with the extra money I didn't put towards shipping.

    Man, I ordered it on the 15th of June around 08:00 GMT+1, also with backcover and it's still pending. Also NL. So how is it Gerrie? Living up to the expectations?

    Well, I can conclude that the option for Priority shipping for Oneplus products is a dummy button just give u excitement for few days until we realize that we aren't getting our candy on time. :D :D So, I also don't order on Priority :p

    Also Germany here, ordered 15.06. without priority and only Carbon Case. Got mine on 18.06., seems as if just a matter of luck.

    I ordered mine 5 mins into the launch of The Loop (5:30pm BST on Tues 14th), it's still pending shipment. I had accessories too, but to be honest, if there's a delay on the accessories we should 1) be emailed and informed of such and 2) given the choice to cancel the accessories or have them shipped when available and get the phone sooner.. Especially when priority shipping is chosen.

    This whole thing is a little ridiculous.

    Priority shipping is simply to do with the actual courier used. The processing time would be the same regardless.
