Why release a phone without any production?

    They take such a strategy to increase HYPE. It generates a "shortage" which creates a buzz.

    Its frustrating, but the good news is that the market is changing we are seeing big companies making high spec phones more affordable. I bet that next year OP3 will not have an invite system otherwise they will go broke with more competition.

    They sell every unit they make, by making people want what they can't have. Smart.

    I bet that's one of your strategies as well... playing hard to get. That only works for so long before you end up alone with 9 cats ;)

    Just saying.....

    OnePlus, in my opinion, being a "viral marketing company" is nothing more than beta testing Oppo designs. As anyone can see, the OnePlus One, is nothing more than the Oppo Find5, minus a few features. The OnePlus2 is nothing more than the Find9, minus features. So, OnePlus gets a bunch of Oppo phones off the line, slaps their covers on them, ships them, and waits for feedback. Any "bugs" are reported, and the design tweaked. Once the negative feedback stops, they start shipping the Oppo Find9.
