    I guess you just stayed true to your avatar, once a thumbs down guy you will always be a thumbs down guy. :p

    This is just the first part, so better wait for the full content. But you got me a bit curious, what did you expect exactly from this interview that could have made you give it a thumbs up? ;)

    Yep, I guess most can see it too, we even have the usual thumbs down guys doing their usual stunts, this time it seems they even brought a so called BS alarm... :eek:

    Nice to see some things never change no matter what. :p

    Now a bit more serious, I do feel this is a nice idea for this community, and I'm glad that @Cheetosdust got to be the one to do it. You may not like the responses you just read, but they came from the person being interviewed, and obviously @Pete is free to just say what he thinks. ;)

    Once again nice work @Cheetosdust. :)

    Interesting interview @Cheetosdust & @Pete. Much appreciated! A great read and great insight into the life of being CEO at OnePlus. I particularly enjoyed the reference to wireless charging "without compromises". I agree, currently there are too many compromises with wireless charging and it can be improved significantly provided a company takes the time to engineer and deliver something better. The market is inundated with many wireless charging options, but few devices do this "well". Even Samsung's "fast" wireless charging could be significantly improved. Devices overheat and wireless charging never seems consistent. Looking forward to see how OnePlus can innovate here.

    Regarding the Bullets Wireless Earphones, I had a few questions that came to mind that I'd like to see OnePlus elaborate on if possible.

    I'm curious as to what technologies are leveraged in manufacturing OnePlus devices and accessories. Is OnePlus using a specific ERP to manage their operations and distribution ? What continuous improvement activities take place following a successful product launch like the bullets wireless earphones? What steps are taken to ensure the next NEW product launch goes even smoother? How does OnePlus specifically plan for demand ?

    I'm rambling now, sorry! :) Thanks again Cheetodust for this interview!

    Thank you so much for all your words so far. :)

    I truly feel the OnePlus staff members that made this possible deserve all the love here - and on the previous interviews too.

    I won't forget they could simply said no or nothing at all. :cool:

    Yeah I'm a thumbs down guy when I see stunts like this crap "interview".

    Check this out....it appears that the "community" (even mods) don't care as much about this "interview" you all praise. What did this answer that this one didn't a month ago?

    The answer....nothing. Where were you all then?

    I think I see some folks in this thread thumping him for his answers to the "community" (90 days ago). Yet you want to hear more? He should want to share more?

    Yep, thumbs down guy here when I see trash.
