OnePlus 2 app required for VR launch now available in Google Play Store; register for an invitation
If you are planning on watching the OnePlus 2 unveiled on Monday in VR using your Google Cardboard headset, you will need to download and install a special app from the Google Play Store. The OnePlus 2 Launch app is now available, weighing in at 1.8MB. If you don't have the Google Cardboard headset, you still can use the app to watch the launch although you won't be able to access special features that will be part of the VR stream.

OnePlus has started taking email addresses for those interested in scoring an invitation for the OnePlus 2. Unlike last year when these were in short supply for the OnePlus One, the company says that this will not be an issue the second time around. Inventory of the new phone at launch will be as much as 50 times the amount OnePlus built for its first handset. The invitations are used by OnePlus as a way to align supply with demand. The company expected to sell only 50,000 to 100,000 OnePlus One units last year and ended up ringing up around one million units. This year, the company expects to sell 3 million to 5 million phones, with 10 million targeted for 2016.

To register for an invitation, click on the sourcelink, scroll to the bottom, and add your email address to the list. Right now, there are 52,158 names registered. Invites will be first sent out to contest winners, those who participate in promotions, and those who receive them from a OnePlus 2 owner. Any leftover invites will be sent to people on the reservation list. If you have your eye on the OnePlus 2, better add your name now.

BEWARE of OnePlus products. I bought a OnePlus One earlier this year. It worked fine until it automatically updated to the Oxygen OS via my home's wi-fi. Ever since then I've had problems using it as a cell phone !!! Lousy connections. I've had numerous e-mials with their support team with very frustrating results. Their response protocols are rigid. It's either their way or NO WAY !! First they wanted a video of me having my difficulties with the phone. REALLY?! How is that going to help? Then they wanted me to "tether" my phone to my PC so they could remotely access the phoen eto discover what was wrong. This without asking if I had the proper adapter connection to actually make that happen. My contact assumed that I would have it in my possession!! Of course I didn't but that didn't stop my contact (May Dy) from expecting me to produce one. Really? I'm going to allow total strangers to peruse my PC simply because May Dy assures me that it's alright? I offered, at my expense, to ship the phone to them for inspection. They have refused. I'm still waiting for an address. DO NOT buy their products............YOU'VE BEEN WARNED...
