    Note from @Ruby G.: We're proud to introduce a new user series called Voices of OnePlus. To celebrate the new decade, we are inviting US community members to share their stories and hopes for the coming decade.

    Hello all,

    It's the 6th Anniversary and I've taken a look down memory lane for five of those years as I bought my OnePlus One in January 2015! :eek::D

    I can't believe that after buying it I met perhaps two other people that owned a OnePlus over perhaps 2 or 3 years and now that T-Mobile is selling OnePlus devices, I have two coworkers that have bought a OnePlus device from T-Mobile in perhaps the last 6 months! Times have changed...

    US market can be tough since a lot still buy mobiles from carriers. Although more people seem to know about OnePlus, it seems to still be a little known here.

    Straight from the Lion's den with cubs too.
    Good to see that you're active in the forums again.

    Hope you have more videos regarding your experiences in being the select few people in the States to own a Oneplus One back in the day.

    The boys kept popping in so it worked out just to have them there and participate, much like the photo contest way back - maybe that was 2018?

    So funny to think back then how much I had to explain what OnePlus was and now my coworkers tell me they have bought one or ask for information because they know I have one.

    I do believe, however, that there's always going to be some that will not trust Chinese brands. I get that question, "do you trust them", every so often :rolleyes::D

    I am in California and I just received my phone yesterday.
    I am extremely impressed!
    I'm an iPhone user, but I think this phone knocks it out of the park!

    The 7T model? I actually have an iPhone 6S for work. I don't think they are terrible but you are a bit screwed if you wanted to fix your own device. For instance, my wife has a knack of cracking screens and I was able to replace a Moto G4 Play screen and recently a Pixel XL screen for her phones which I would not be able to do for an iPhone unless I was certified by Apple, used Apple tools and Apple products (I guess I could but then she'd be reminded she wasn't using certified apple 'stuff' each time) ;):p

    Nobody I know in the USA has heard of OnePlus other than one friend of mine in our hacker club, owns a 6.

    This is despite T-Mobile and Verizon both carrying it.

    Apple and Samsung are huge sales profit phones, so many stores dont even have the OnePlus on display, and likewise hard to find on their websites.

    That seems to be the pattern and I was surprised by the crowd in NYC for the 6T launch although I guess I shouldn't have been. The line outside the TMobile store in Times Square though was something to see. Myself and a couple of other community heroes got drafted into helping showcase the nightscape mode at that time and I was still using my OPO running Lineage OS :p:D. Shortly after that was when I finally upgraded but I grabbed the OP6 in Red on sale from OP ;)
