    No, into my account everything is wrong, I put my wife birthdate (I'm 46 old guy, snif) I even don't know why as she left 5 years ago. But I still love her..

    Awesome write-up :) To think that all of this has come about from a chat less than a year ago and you are launching a device in just a few weeks! It's amazing and really puts things into perspective. Might even make the wait for more information a little more bearable (only a little though - teasers are always appreciated ;) )

    It's years since I don't read such a good, sincere, pure speech in this market. I am thrilled and hyped in equal parts. You are really big.
    Although the future could be misbehave (certainly not), we get many brilliant experiences together.

    Lets see how many chapter we are going to see ^^
    To the scepticism, that is natural. As for me I am not rich enough to buy a smartphone every time new generation arrives and until now it has been talking and promisses only. This is nothing bad, but do not say that you have been "missunderstood" just because people are sceptical and make fun of your teasing with you not giving all the information... Everyone can talk big words, but without any proof, what did you expect?
    Thanks for the update though, I will be waiting and it better be worth it! ;)

    OnePlus have a really good staff and quality. Wish I, one day, meet you all. I'm 17, I'll follow the company and learn about the tech market like you and one day I'll try my opportunity.

    Good luck 1+!

    A great read! One thing I really enjoy here is the passion that is senseable.

    As many of the members here in this forum I'm the "go to" person if it comes to tech related questions especially when it comes to smartphones for quiet some people.

    If the ONE is really as good as you make me believe it will be, I'm more than happy to spread the word the best I can.

    i love the brashness of 1+. they're putting themselves out there. i don't see why anyone would have a problem with what they are doing. the fact that they are even saying such things before revealing the phone shows they are making a conscious effort to deliver on these lofty promises. they know what's at stake and they're putting it all on the line. no other company would be brave enough to do what 1+ is doing because they don't believe in themselves and their product enough. this shows that 1+ has confidence in what they're doing and truly believes in their product.

    if they don't deliver, they will be gone as quick as they came. simple as that. this write up shows that 1+ is not backing down from what they have said. they plan on surpassing the competition at a much lower price. can they do it? we shall see in a few weeks.

    yeah sure, the skeptics, naysayers, and trolls are gonna show up. "they aren't gonna get it done", "its all talk, no substance", "you can't provide a flagship killer phone for less than $400", "release the phone now or you'll lose customers". that's the nature of the beast and it will be 1+'s task to prove these doubters wrong. if they do, not only will they win over all the skeptics and have the impatient consumers with egg on their face for deciding to pay $200-300 more for an inferior product because they just had to have something now, they will turn the industry completely on its head by putting out a superior handset way under the going rate. honestly, even if you think this is all big talk, you should at least be cheering these guys on hoping they will accomplish this goal because it's gonna change things for the better by forcing the competition to change the way they make phones. a win for 1+ is a win for the consumer as they're making this phone with our input. what? you like paying $600+ for a lackluster phone?

    while they have yet to do much to earn people's business, they've done more than enough to earn people's attention. they have some really interesting stuff going on under the hood for an insanely low price. whether you're on board with this phone or skeptical of it, whether you're here saying how awesome this phone will be or how much of a disappointment this phone will be, its clear that 1+ did enough to have you talking about it. no one knows anything until we see the phone. we should all be excited or intrigued to see what these guys can do.

    the ball is in 1+'s court. they have an opportunity to do something huge here. they don't need a huge marketing campaign to sell this phone. if they do what they said they'll do the phone will sell itself. when reviewers get a hold of this handset and are utterly wowed by how awesome it is in every aspect of what a smartphone is and does, you'd have to be an idiot to turn down a spectacular phone of such caliber which costs hundreds of dollars less than anything else out there.

    will OnePlus prevail?? stay tuned..

    It's awesome to get some perspective. Reading this was pretty refreshing and has me even more excited! I genuinely smiled when you thanked the community. I Can't wait to see what OnePlus and the Cyanogen team created.
