    It seems that a lot of effort for a phone and I just wanted to know what aspects appealed to people and what their genral opinion was on the phone and if it is worth trying to get one.

    Thanks

    1. As powerful as an S5/other top of the line phones but half the cost.
    2. Great design/looks good
    3. (some people may not agree) invites {the limited availability makes the people who have it feel special}

    You should really use the search function. There are many threads that exsist detailing what is both good and bad about the phone. Even more that compare the phone to its competitors. @finaldentiny @Waterdroid @kp1234 @domi39 @wtfhsf

    It's a work of or art.
    Better than the s5.
    Looks better than almost every phone that is out.
    Sleek. And powerful.
    It is the perdeck phone.

    The price fits my budget.

    Well for one thing, it's not hard to get. I see a lot of people asking for invites in places where people are not offering and I could see those people having a hard time but if you do it right, it shouldn't take any longer to get an invite than it would take you to drive to your local Best Buy or AT&T Store.

    That said, not much. You're getting what you pay for. Of course, it has the specs of a $650 phone for $350, but those savings come from somewhere. There are people that like to perpetuate the myth that all of the other companies only care about money and OnePlus simply wants to make a good phone. OnePlus cares about money just as much as any other company out there.

    Note that if you buy the OPO, you're pretty much on your own. If you get a defective unit, you can fill out a ticket and it takes two weeks for them to get back to you for support. Even if they do, most of the time they just tell you to deal with the problem because the next software update will fix it, which is probably a month, so you're stuck with a bum phone for a month and a half.

    It's a great phone with an average camera though. I'd say it's worth the money. If you're on AT&T, your bill drops by $25 because you won't be under contract. Just understand that you're taking a risk.

    the invite system creates artificial demand by controlling supply,
    and adds a mystique of exclusivity....but other than that, it is
    a great device with a nice OS for very little $

    It's similar to Apple, the created iPhone, advertised it and them had limited availability, people were waiting months to get in but its all in what value you place on a device. It's new, cutting edge but its not going to break your wallet to have it.
