    I don't understand why everyone is so mad at this company. Timing isn't very different from other flagship releases, and how can you beat the specs and prove on this thing? !
    Are there any legitimate problems, or is this a case of unrealistic expectations from the masses? I'm leaning towards the latter.

    It's because many of us are in desperate need of a phone, or just plain impatient. It's as simple as that. Society... read about it.

    All of us disgruntled forumites will be eating our words before the end of this month.

    maybe it's cause people are starting to realize that maybe they didn't really want the phone in the first place and they are making open suggestions not to buy it to justify it to themselves. maybe they are just angry people.

    Because patience is the key, but OPO was impatient regarding its immature hype-creating method.

    I bet that I get to 3000+ posts and 2000+ likes before I even get an invite, let alone, that this phone is ready to the general public...

    Per OnePlus, David, the admin:
    "We want to thank you for your constant support and patience and we would like to use the last few lines of this post to re-assure you that the people who want to buy the One will be able to do so without many difficulties in June."

    Never settle.
    I think that was someone's motto. Forgot who.

    Well it's been fun so far look at them go super saiyan with the hatred. They forgot no one forced them to wait in the first place. They wanted the great phone with great price. And went supernova when they didn't get the invites they were hoping for. Most of them are buying the phone to follow the trend. Only a small number of people in this forum wait for it in the hope of never settle for a hyped phone with crazy price.

    What's so ignorant is that people feel like the world owes them something that they had no idea existed until a month ago.

    It's funny when some people (before they got their invites) started to get agitated on the forums, but once they place their order to buy it...all of a sudden their attitude changed and preceded to say "wait guys" "you'll get one too". I'm like yeah sure, you already have the phone or you know when it's coming, while we're still in the dark.

    Glad I don't seem to be missing anything. I'm still excited about the phone, and hope to get one. I won't be crushed if I don't get an invite tomorrow, but like most, do hope it will be available sooner rather than later.
    I'm obviously not a kisser of rears since this is my second (?) post in these forums. Not interested in "winning" the opportunity to buy it, since it is more their honor to make the sale.
    The time will come when I can choose the oneplus or another phone for less, but with a contract that has similar or better specs.

    Best of luck to y'all, some of you sound like you deserve it.
