    so you dropped your phone, you broke it, then you refuse to pay for repairs, then you tell us not to buy a perfectly working phone.

    got it.

    Well could be or could not be fraud based on the scenario. If I drop the phone from 5cm height and it shows no physical damage or if I drop it from a metres height and it shows no sign of physical damage.

    You cannot have a company quoting you a price without examining the device. What sort of warranty policy is that?

    Maybe all his drop did has loosen a connection that makes his phone unusable and I'm sure if they examine his device they could quote him for labor rather than an unwanted replacement part.

    Quoting almost 200$ without even inspecting the device shows how this company runs. Pathetic.

    I've litteraly dropped my opo 10+ times in the last week alone.... Still works perfect and no problem. I have a cruzerlite case on it. It falls out of my hoodie pockets when at work climbing ladders mostly. I would say this phone is made very very very well. Yours may have very well been built incorrectly or maybe mine was built too well idk lol

    Love my opo

    Well... no.
    It's a tale of delusion and denial, of poor muscle coordination and misplaced blame, in short a play about an attempted scamming of Oneplus by one of its unscrupulous customers.

    Exactly what I'm thinking, there is no way they should quote anyone before having fully examined the phone.

    mine dropped screen first. It sat 80cm off the floor on a notepad, grazed it (my fault) and it fell screen down as described, with the added drama of a notepad landing on the back. not a single scratch came out of that ordeal. Everyone buy this great phone!

    For the record - I've dropped mine multiple times, no case, no screen protector. Worst was on rough concrete, while running, watched it slam then skitter across the ground. Should be dead. Screen is fine, hasn't cracked, metal bezel is trashed. There are deep gouges and bends in all four corners (so I've dropped it at least 4 times, hard enough to smash the bezel in). For the abuse I've put this through so far I'd say build quality is very high to excellent - leaning toward excellent. If OP's phone has no external damage, and really fell from a meter, it's prob a loose cable or something similarly trivial. I'd crack it open and fix it - not that hard to do. https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/OnePlus One Teardown/26484

    I had my phone stolen on vday. I got my phone on Jan 12th. I bought a new phone on sunday. Shit happens... I deal with it.

    There are insurance companies you can get to cover costs if something happens right?

    Curious cause I will purchase it for my new phone.

    Why should I tell them what happened with it? It's on God damn warranty. They'll have to find out the issue. If you tell them you dropped it then they will behave like opo and quote you repair cost without inspecting the device.

    So I rather have them tell me what's wrong with it.

    Bulls**t. No phone is made to survive drops unless it is IP-certified

    I have long saved my hard earned Euros. I certainly avoid any product from this company. I have heard and read enough. My first smartphone, Motorola Defy Plus and second, Nokia Lumia 820 are still working flawlessly. I just wanted to upgrade for the sake of that. However, am not impressed about this company.

    Unless you have a warranty don't buy a phone is like saying don't ever buy a used car. I bought a nee tool from eBay and broke it then I threw it away. My fault.
