    I wanted to briefly discuss how my OPO experience has been so far. I have heard so much negativity on the forums about problems with the phone, the software, etc.
    I was quite nervous ordering my OPO because of it.

    so many complaints about the invite system. I had signed up with a forum account a few months backn and I was semi-active. When I finally had the money and started hunting for an invite, took me all of 10 minutes to get one. Being polite and respectful goes a long way.

    Ordering: I have heard several horror stories of people being on "Pending Shipment" eternally. On mine, I ordered on Sunday, pending shipment on Monday, Shipped on Wednesday, received today (Friday). No issues what-so-ever. Mid-west USA.

    Unboxing: The packaging itself is pristine. I really respect the quality and attention to detail on something as simple as packaging that will be thrown away anyway. Really gives the impression that One Plus cares about their product.

    The Phone Itself: Once more, so many horror stories about the one. Yellowing on the screen, malfunctioning touch screen, apps crashing,... the OPO spontaneously catching fire, and so on. Happy to report, that this batch at least, works flawlessly. No yellowing even on a blank white screen. Touch screen has no issues, and the speed is great. It could run laps around my old Iphone.

    Software: Different issue same story, so many complaints on the forum. I got my phone, plugged it in, the new software version was waiting for me when I got it turned on. I downloaded it no problem, and I am having zero issues with it.

    Final Words: All in all, a fantastic phone. If you are on the fence due to the complaints on the forums, don't be. Pick it up. Definitely worth it.

    ps: If this sounds like I am bragging I am sorry, that was not my intent. There is just so much negative feedback, I feel that people who, like me, are having no issues just don't post. I would hate for people to miss out due to random one-off situations.

    Thank you for reading. ^_^

    Am on the same boat with the OP. No issue here whatsoever even after the OTA update to 38R.

    Yeah if u just go by the forum threads it seems like there's a lot more problems than there actually are. Its just a vocal minority that is giving a lot of ppl second thoughts

    I got my invite the next day after I signed up.

    I thought I was lucky. But guess those giving invites also judge the person 1st before giving.

    I guess new comers should remember that not to beg for invites. And participate in the forum more.

    I'm still waiting for my Oneplus to reach me.
