Difficult to get invitations

At the end of his first telephone in 2014, an invitation was needed to get the OnePlus One.Pour get it, you had to register on the site and be patient. It was not until almost ten months to buy it without the precious. For the second version of its mobile OnePlus adopted the same strategy, betting on the appeal brought about by the scarcity of the product. In Paris, the copies on sale for a day at Colette were quickly passed. The disappointment of the day were invited to register on the waiting list. The promise made by then Carl Pei was to “serve as a month instead of three for orders placed on the Internet.” The promise has not been honored.
“With the OnePlus 2, everything had to go perfectly. We were more confident and better prepared we had our stocks. We announced our users that it would be 30 or 50 times easier to have invitations and they did not have to worry. This week we are just beginning to send copies in minute amounts, nearly a month after our initial launch date. We can say that what you will, but in the end, perfect execution is much more meaningful than broken promises “can be read on the company’s blog.
To make amends, the company will offer its smartphone without invitation for purchase for a limited time at its usual price. This operation should take place by October.
