    I heard that you can buy the OnePlus One directly from china without the invite system so I decided to check them out. Turns out the 16 GB is only $360 including fast DHL shipping from other sites. Do you guys think it's worth the extra money to get it quick?

    You will not have LTE in other parts of the world. Not worth it unless you live in China

    As tempting as it'ld be I'd wait for an invite. Might sound stupid but you'll probably feel more love for your phone that way

    I hear that it is the exact same phone so the LTE compatibility should be the same

    Wrong. You can use LTE in most parts of the world with the Chinese OPO.

    The Chinese website ones are the exact same phone just produced for domestic sale. In china, an invite system does not exist for the oneplus one hence the general sale of it :)

    there is difference in LTE bands and probly cant use it in US. users in other parts of the world may not find it any different if they were to root it and install CM11..... but of course the sentimental value here is to get it from the original CM..... :)

    If you don't want to wait then I'd buy a cheap invite on eBay, at your own risk, or buy one from swappa or Craigslist.

    Just make low ball offers and see what happens.
