16GB white for £229 - good deal

It is although to be honest unless you specifically want white I think it's worth paying the extra for the increased storage.

Only really posting as some may be looking to get phones for Xmas... I'm not bothered if it goes hot or cold to be honest but I am aware that some members here have been frantically trying to get invites.

Heard their customer service is really poor with people having to wait over a month for resolving faulty phones. Only thing holding me back from buying...

It is apologies.... did search but missed it.... ADMIN PLEASE DELETE (I'll expire)

Worth reading this article on XDA before giving them your money. You do get what you pay for it seems.

I've had mine for 6 months now.... absolutely no issues other than me messing around with rooting, installing custom roms etc. I'd say the vast majority of people would have no issues as well (I know quite a few other owners now).

Artem from Android Police has one and prefers it over his Nexus 6. Lots of bugs have been resolved and it seems to be a solid device.

We have a Oneplus in the house, and I had one myself originally (sold it to Cex). Ordered another one with an invite but quickly regretted and cancelled - within half an hour in fact. It didn't actually cancel though as they ignored my cancellation email. Then spent a month fighting out a refund with PayPal after various issues stemming from Oneplus telling me to refuse the parcel.

After this, their incredibly slow customer service responses and the multiple threads online about poor RMA service I wouldn't personally trust them with £275 of my money. Better off paying a little more and getting a G3 or something. Device is nice enough but camera is meh, software isn't the most stable in the world and the device takes forever to charge unless you use the right cable and wall plug. Not sure it's as good a price as people think it is, with so many cheap deals available on other devices.

My advice - buy from a known brand with a presence in the UK for repair issues, as the phone might well be a bargain now but won't be if you end up fighting to get it repaired a few months down the line.

The camera is excellent, probably one of it's best features.... it was good to begin with but the latest firmware updates make it even better (HDR, Clear Image, RAW, etc...).

Completely understand, and good to hear your device is fine. I'm just worried about being one of the unlucky one's and receiving a faulty device like I did last week with the Nexus 5 from Expansys.

The Oneplus we have 'in the house' is my wife's - and she is always complaining about how crap the camera is especially in dim light. Comparing shot-for-shot with my 6 Plus it's like night and day (literally).

I think maybe some people have different expectations. Personally I'm dreading if anything goes wrong with her Oneplus as I ordered it in my name and the last thing I want to do is deal with them again.

Read the thread on XDA I linked to. Considering the relatively small volume of devices Oneplus have shipped there's an inordinate amount of faults and complaints. What happens if you have a fault? There are no repair centres in the UK so I can only assume you have to ship to China or a centre in Europe to be forwarded to a repair centre. I imagine the wait would be WEEKS, not days. Some people don't care about this, but I don't like being without my phone for ages at a time. This startup could also easily fold or change its approach to the OS - leaving us with something other than Cyanogenmod and a really slow or nonexistent software update cycle. We just don't know, and that's the punt you take with this 'cheap' price. If you buy an LG or an Apple you have a lot more peace of mind - that's where your extra money goes.

That is a risk indeed... but remember if you order in the UK... say for example on a contract from Carphonewarehouse, your contract is with them and not the manufacturer. If they fold then you have very few rights. Sure Samsung or LG UK might help, but they may charge for such a service, it certainly would not be as straight forward as walking in and saying "Fix this or replace it". I know of plenty of people that have had issues with UK companies as well but I accept that placing trust in an unknown quantity such as OPO does have it's risks. As mentioned I am aware of a large (100) or so owners of the OPO and a very small number have returned their phones, generally due to what they considered to be a a yellowing in the lower part of the screen. This has been reduced worth firmware updates and for most it was never an issue anyway.

This is simply not true. If a company folds in the UK there will be no issues with repairs. Sony, HTC, Apple and Samsung will repair a phone regardless, so long as it was bought in the EU and is within their warranty period. I have NEVER taken a faulty electronic item back to the original seller as they are invariably slower at dealing with a repair than the manufacturer. The only manufacturer I had an issue with was LG, who asked for a purchase date and receipt. This again would not be a problem if the company folded though. I don't think your point is anything like the one I made about Oneplus. All manufacturers offer a 12 month (minimum) warranty - most of them are two years, other than Apple. These warranties run alongside any other consumer rights the customer has, so a seller going bust is irrelevant in this sort of scenario.

Great phone. had mine 3+ months and apart from a very slight yellow tinge at base of screen on a white page on my handset, it's a bargain with great version of android from CyanogenMod. Should also get updated to lollipop v soon.

No guarantee. First one I ordered (with the expensive delivery option) came within two days, second one took a week - same delivery option.

These guys have pretty good feedback and slightly cheaper although seems delivery times are a bit long
#23
I'll keep it simple.

OOS AT THE MO.

BRILLIANT PHONE.

CUSTOMER SERVICE RUBBISH. STILL WAITING FOR ACCESSORIES ORDERED 3 WEEKS AGO.

EXCELLENT SOFTWARE

BEAUTIFUL TO HOLD AND LOOK AT. BEST LOOKING PHONE IMHO

GREAT PERFORMANCE WITH BEST OS MOD (CYANOGENMOD).

ONLY WISH CAMERA LOW LIGHT PERFORMANCE WAS A LITTLE BETTER. BUT STILL ON PAR WITH LG G3 AND SONY Z3.

WORTH THE RISK FOR A GREAT DEVICE. THINK OF ALL THE THINGS WE BUY ON A PUNT THAT COST A LOT MORE WITHOUT MUCH OF A WARRANTY IF THINGS GO WRONG.

USED CARS
PROPERTY
WOMEN

NO ISSUES WITH MY PHONE SO FAR AND NEVER BEEN ABLE TO SAY THAT IN ALL MY PHONE OWNING YEARS.

out of stock now :(
