We liked the phone when we went hands-on with it, but they don’t tend to sell as well as they could because the invite-only system makes them hard to access when they first go on sale.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Still, OnePlus has been speeding up the transition between the first invite-only sales and full availability as the brand grows and improves its production capacity.
While it took the original OnePlus a full year to become available without an invite (aside from some short sales), the OnePlus X moved from announcement to invite-free sales in 3 months.
Hopefully that gap will close further – then OnePlus might be able to make a serious dent in the market.
