    Wow, I come back to see what's up with OnePlus and finding out they've gone more downhill from their original mission. I thought whole point was to create an affordable flagship phone. They were ripping out and breaking standard stuff like NFC and a borked USB Type-C and adding stupid gimmicks like the alert slider but not a microSD slot... and now they're doing installment payments with interest? If they at least noted that interest will be involved, it wouldn't feel like such a scam.

    Makes me not want me to sell my OnePlus One so I can at least remember a time when they were cool and legit. And people saying it's "a small startup company" can't really use that excuse anymore. It's been 2 years now, it's going to need to take up the big man pants or at least stop screwing up. I really hope they resolve whatever issues they have and make a good and proper OnePlus 3.

    I was about to purchase and then saw this is only available in the US. Should make a plan to start this in the UK too.

    Will this be available for Canada in the near future or with the poor CAD exchange it won't be an option?

    @Carl What's the policy if you can't make the payment on time? I ask this because a lot of people will be using installments because they don't have the money to buy the phone outright and people's financial situation can change very quickly.

    Nice option for those that are lacking funds, but would like a phone.
    I understand the interest, but as others have said, you should have mentioned that in the starting post.
    Does anyone qualify , or is there a credit check Via PayPal ?

    It's quite clearly communicated on the purchase page.

    We're using PayPal Credit which is at a 19.99% APR. This is on the high side, and we're open to suggestions that can give our customers a better rate. :)

    This is an interesting idea, but doesn't this make the phone more expensive over time and you are then locked in to paying like a contract with carrier. The 1+3 will drop in the summer supposedly so why lock yourself into an older phone.
