Stop giving OP a hard time because their phone lacks features, because they are innovators.

    While giving them a hard time, yes. And then harshly whining about features it lacks too - all this while forgetting that this is a small company/startup that never intended to sell past 50,000 phones when the OPO first came out and simply wanted to try to make the best phones, and then being called out for being unable to manage the clamouring demand from all around the world. Most people are just angry because they can't get what they want when they want it - which is a rather childish sentiment if you ask me.

    Oh, and I'm not against you here at all man :) Just a little sad that people are forgetting that this a company that has developed (for instance) a level of camera post-processing that matches up to the standards of large companies that have stayed very comfortably in the field (HTC/Samsung/LG/Apple) - with just a newly formed team of 15 engineers.

    (See : http://m.androidcentral.com/camera-showdown-oneplus-2-vs-lg-g4-vs-galaxy-s6)

    Don't you think this puts Samsung/Apple/LG to absolute, utter shame? For a startup in their second year, I think they're pretty baller. They have a glaring weakness as a company in terms of managing their demand, but I don't think they should be so harshly faulted - not especially since larger companies have already made similar or worse mistakes with their own products before.

    Managing international demand isn't easy, managing international criticism isn't easy, and managing production and shipping with limited risk and manpower isn't easy for a company their size. They don't make big margins with their phones, and I've read somewhere that Carl has acknowledged that OnePlus won't be breaking even for FY2015. Give it a few years, and then we'll truly see if they'll shine or shatter. :)

    If OP not focus and not listen to customer it will disappear in next two years. It will become one of statistic companies fail.

    Why are people getting hung up on the wireless charging issue? it only takes a couple of hours and the OPT is fully charged anyway plus wireless charging leads to a shorter battery life

    If this was a Samsung or sony or etc... Phone, it definitely would've been more expensive. So like I said the price for what you get is better than what others offer.

    It is not a good comparison. Xiaomi, OPPO, and other Chinese brands that they are compete with.

    Edit: well know brands like Samsung or Sony Revenue and market share are larger. Right now not many people know OP. I am sure many people will aware how bad it is at innovation or a company became a case study for other Chinese smart phone companies

    None of these functions are new, oneplus have not invented the wheel here. Good phone, good spec, low price point.
    Stop kissing *** to try and get an invite

    Survival of the fittest my friend.
    No room for mediocre performance. Startups die faster than the time it took them to come up!!
    Think what happened to BB and Nokia. And they were the big fish!!

    M9 has a better camera and Z3+ has quick charging!! and both the companies are bleeding money.
    If OP needs to grow it needs to look at those that are ahead like apple and samsung and not those who are struggling!!

    Erm the Moto G came out long before the OPO. No name Chinese phones were always sold at cheap prices, you just weren't looking properly.

    Still think it irrelevant. It's my opinion :rolleyes: if it's a deal breaker for you there are plenty of phones to choose from.
