Close to one million OnePlus One units sold in 2014

But as OnePlus explained, it needed to keep supply and demand in sync so that it wouldn't spend extra money building handsets that it didn't need to manufacture. The invitation system was the best way OnePlus found to keep track of orders and to keep things in balance. The 16GB Silk White model is priced at $299 and the 64GB Sandstone Black version is $349. Considering that there is no microSD slot, those needing plenty of storage are purchasing the 64GB variant.
OnePlus founder Carl Pei says that the company will improve its operations and customer service in 2015. In addition a sequel to the OnePlus One, the OnePlus Two, will be available in the second or third quarter of this year. The design team has been working on nailing down the perfect screen size for the "Two" and Pei has said that the new model will surprise people. Additionally, a second new model is due for 2015, and Pei says that this handset could be for those who care more about design than specs.

They're as bad as Google and Motorola. A bs way of obtaining the phone and running Cyanogen mod instead of android.

Could have been more than a million if only not for those invites that they've done.

Yup. It's an excellent phone. Even if there is a bunch of butt hurt haters talking crap about it all the time. I must say I really love mine.

I want one to replace my galaxy s3! But ever since it exploded in a mans pocket in France I am apprehensive about buying one. What's worse is that the explosion was a production mistake. I am resisting the wild urge to buy the oneplus one anyway.

OnePlus did do one thing for me though...on their user forum site, people were looking for alternatives and a discussion of the Huawei Mate2 came up, a device I didn't bother to consider when I saw the specs. I ended up getting one because of the lag...signed up in April...first week of July the mate2 came, and wouldn't you know it, a week later, the invite popped up for the OnePlus. Ordered it, just as a back up device or to sell later. I got so use to the Mate2, I sold the Oneplus. Even if the mate2 doesn't ever get an update, for me, it's fast, clear bright screen, no lag, and the battery life kicks butt! Rock solid stable, for me, trumps high end specs.

OnePlus One is pretty outdated now by today's standards of high-end phones. I hope they have a sqeuel
