    There is no indication that the limited edition Thunder Purple will ever be back, but there has also not been a canonical statement from OnePlus yet.

    Also, for reference, this board's (Starting Point) main purpose is to be a place where new members can post new threads since they can't do so in the main boards for their first 15 days. You really should consider posting in the main boards, FWIW.

    It's a phone color.
    Put a case on it to protect the glass back.
    Move on with more important things in life.

    Have some sympathy.

    Is it a big deal in the grand scheme of things? Maybe not. But people want what they want, and have a right to be upset when a company screws them over -- no matter if it's a 'big deal' or a 'small deal'.

    Yeah, there are a number of people who are less than pleased about this.

    If it does come back (and I'm not hopeful about that), it will almost definitely be after they're done pushing the McLaren version...

    Not much sympathy at all for this issue. :rolleyes:
    Heck, I "want" to win the MegaMillions Lottery... because I "want" it.
    And no one is 'screwed over'. If they're upset they can express it with how they open and empty their wallet.

    Seriously. If it comes back, be happy. If it doesn't come back, who cares. The world isn't going to stop spinning on its axis.

    The entire premise of a lottery is luck, and is thus really not applicable to this situation.

    If you can't muster some empathy for a legitimate complaint, then do folks a favor and just stay out of these threads.

    ETA: To be clear, lack of response is NOT a concession. But I'm no longer willing to feed the trolls, and will therefore not be reading or responding to any replies.

    I have plenty of empathy... for things that really matter.
    This is, wait for it, a phone "color". It's not different in any other way.

    Time to get in touch with reality.

    FYI if you are paying your money! you can decide what color do you want to get. the color matters to whoever that wants to have something different!.

    I'd like a caramel machiato....here's a vanilla latte get over it, it's just coffee. We can apply that mentality across all areas of life... but we all have taste that makes us unique LOL. I mean if someone says, there's no point of living because i couldn't get my purple OnePlus phone, then i agree with ya

    The distress with which many commented about missing the purple model would have you believe that there was no point in living. SMH.

    I stand by my comments. It's a phone color. Time to move on to more important issues.

    With that mentality, there is no need to produce any colors, just mass produce one color for everything in life and call it good. Make one brand of a car with one color that gets you XYZ luxury and call it good. There is a reason why diversity exists in the world, to make money and entertain our taste! lol

    I don't think people are going suicidal here because their phone "color" isn't available, just frustrated. It's more like, why market something, create a demand, and then go ghost mode without any answers.

    I mean that's purely your interpretation, and you're more than welcome to it. I personally have a taste and was very excited about the Thunder Purple edition, and now annoyed that the company isn't providing answers. I need a phone badly, so not sure if i should get whatever, or wait for what i want.

    Is there a (good) reason that you resurrected this thread?
    I can't think of one, so I'm out.
    Have fun.

    Forums are for opinions and discussions, my comments fit well in that category. I wasn't hating on anyone. You stated your thought which triggered a response. As simple as that!

    You might want to check with support. Recent threads are saying that it wont be available. Let us know in the thread on what was the response.
