What are your biggest concerns/issues with the OPO so far?

    I've seen it on here and the OnePlus subreddit. Scary stuff indeed, and with a new company like OnePlus, we don't know as of now how they're handling issues like that.

    well.. glad to tell you that you aren't missing much... I have my doubts about the original charger (eu)
    My OPO is charging at the moment (from 15% to 75% atm) and the charger is so hot that I can't hold it for over 10 seconds atm...
    I also read about UK ipad mini-chargers made by the same OEM (salcomp), also producing excessive amounts of heat to the point where the charger would stop charging at about 90% as a safety precaution... o_O
    Other issues I have:
    • very slight yellow band
    • the known multitouch problem (defective ground?)
    • gesture problems (will soon be fixed)
    • randomly resets ringtones every once in a while ...

    For sure! I guess it depends on what app you use (I'm using manga reader which has been removed from play store, found an apk) but as far as I've tested it, it's smooth and clear. If the text gets too small to read in portrait you can always rotate the screen to landscape. Here are some screenshots

    No way! I'm using a razr right now. That definitely reassures me a lot now. How do you find the durability comparing? The one thing I still like about razr is that it's taken a beating but it doesn't show.

    I ordered cruzerlite bugdroid case for $13 on amazon and a screen protector as well.

    aha yes! And true omg I've dropped my razr so many times and it's as if nothing even happened. The razr was like a little brick but man it just slowly died on me, it lags so much and freezes and I seriously needed a new phone asap (had it for a year and got it used so it lived it's life). I find the OPO is more fragile and thin and I can't treat it like the razr lol.

    I heard those are quite good, I'm just dumb and picky with the design. Also I desperately need a screen protector! I've been trying to decide on one for so long but can't choose (been reading forums all day). Gonna probably go with a tempered glass protector (from China or sth, but shipping....)

    Yes! The lag and freezing is killing me, my razr has all the functionality of a dumb phone right now. The upside to that is I manage to pull off 2 days of battery life, the downside is I have a ton of data that's being wasted every month :(

    The Home Key is too close to the keyboard. I would be typing and accidentally hit the home key. I've done it a few times already. I guess I am too used to the Samsung physical Home key.

    Same. Add stuck pixels to that list. Randomly popped up but I think they should disappear over time. Hopefully the yellow does too

    Augh it was really annoying and I searched the forums & everywhere to fix the issue but couldn't find anything of much help. Anyways I can't really pinpoint what I did but here's what I (probably) did:
    I went to Settings>Accounts>Whatsapp and clicked 'sync'. Went back to whatsapp but nothing happened.
    Restarted my phone. Reinstalled whatsapp. By this time my phone contacts all disappeared except for the 4 contacts that showed up in Whatsapp... Had to re-import my contacts from my SIM.
    Went back to Whatsapp and somehow now all the contacts showed up.
    It went something like that, if that works, I'm glad I'm of some help, if not let me know! I'll try to jog my memory.

    I thought they had fixed this after the pre-production units (and early reviews) went out?

    Disappointed to see it is still an issue for some folks.

    Weaker signal than my nexus 5 and that wasn't very good either.

    operations in general. customer service, tech support, etc. reliability is also a concern.
