OnePlus bid adieu to invites, for good this time


The OnePlus One was one of the best phones from 2014, but it had its own share own controversy thanks to the crazy invite system.

However, a little less than a year since its announcement (the phone was announced April 23rd, 2014), the company has revealed that the phone will finally be available invite-free. Up until now, since a couple of months or so, the phone had been having weekly invite-free Tuesdays.

The OnePlus One comes with a decent processor in the Snapdragon 801, and has 3GB of RAM and almost every other feature you could think of on a 2014 flagship. OnePlus is due for a major announcement today (or so it appears), so this could very well be a build up sort of a thing.

We’ll bring you the latest scoop on OnePlus, so be sure to stay tuned… meanwhile, you can take a look at other OnePlus news on GizChina.

What do you expect from the announcement due for later today? OnePlus Two, or the freshly leaked ‘affordable’ OnePlus phone? Let us know in the comments section below.

    It’s probably a sign of mass-production maturity 😉

      Combined with a declining demand.

    Will there be an invite system for the OnePlus Two ?

    A new week, another good laugh as the advertising model morphs from The Bad & The Ugly onto The Good …. or could it be vice-versa ……..

    Remember that scene from the Sphaggeti Western, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly where The Ugly got shopped/betrayed and is locked-up by the local sheriff and as The Bad exits and The Good enters with The Ugly remarking that, “One bast**d comes in and another goes out..?” .. or to something to that effect ….. You do ?! Well, do you realise that ….

    When Fear is the underlying/covert driver/”shadow” for/of Greed, it matters not how many times some airy-fairy change his make-up toyboy. Why?, you may ask [as if you needed to..]. This is because when every [thinking] human is dual natured, what the kreature gives with one hand, he takes away with the other hand. Still scratching the head? Try the following then …..

    When The Left Hand is tethered/”bonded” to The Right Hand by The Body, not only is there no such a thing as “secrets” between The Hands, then, Half-Full is merely Half-Empty. Got it or are those pesky “smartmobiles” too much of a distraction/mesmeric-influence. Then, like it, believe it, realise it, or not, “Kapitalism” is merely having the “freedom” to be Nonsensical/Abandoned whereas “Kommunism” is merely not having the “freedom” to be Sensible – you know, to be made into some Kontrol Freak – or else, Komrade. Da? Jawhol, Da, da, di, doo ..

    For the benevolence of those who are unable to count beyond their toes other than throwing zeroes at their lacking/affliction, it is benevolent to realise [and not merely Knowing-Everything-Relative-but-Realising-Nothing-Real] that when self is “Dual Natured”/”Multi-Faceted”, Control Freakism is merely the latency of Its Abandoned Nuttism. Meaning O’Spit of The Gob? ….. Meaning that when one is “Forked-Tongued”, Control is merely Abandonment suppressed and that Abandonment is then merely Control expressed.

    When you are told to, “Never Settle For Less”, via Tricks of The Trade like “Limited Advertising Budget”, and other Toothfairy tales that even Da Toothfairy daren’t spin for Her Mesmerised, the next trick could very well be, “Yer G_d ist Hier, Boyz N Galz, ‘cuz No More Inviitation Necessary”.

    Now, shud that Wow-Wee or perhaps a mere Yeehaw will suffice ! Hands up those who wud like to debate the point. Thoroughly. Hang-on, what is that you are hanging on your dear life onto, Sweet Cheeks? Some Apfling Frivolity & Nonsense [of FoxyConny-HonyHaiya] or is that merely a MeToo Frivolity & Nonsense [F&N]. Realise too that when F&N is reigning, that is because Morality & Sense had gone AWOL, The Immune System not being some Trifling Convenience for instituting Addiction by Quackery & Handler other than The Statement of One’s “Behavioural Disposition”. Afterall, when some airy-fairy is feverishly wafting his-her pheramone/”snifflings” when mere communication will do, what is that telling you, Toots? Yes, eets time to ratchet-up the Fame, Fortune & Immortality [FF&I], FF&I being The Facades of Malevolence, oka The Culture of Malevolence. OTOH, should the above be too convoluted, perhaps it needs to be read, say, another 1,000 times more? Better than having to write it on some “Blackboard”, of course.

    They are about 11 months too late with this news. And we all know the invite system will be back with the One Plus Two. They will just have a new name for it.
