OnePlus One can be bought without invitation (but at higher prices)

OnePlus One can be bought without invitation (but at higher prices)

The new OnePlus One is an excellent smartphone for its price, but most people can’t buy it, because OnePlus is currently selling the device only via an invite system. However, it looks like there is a way around this problem, as long as you don’t mind ordering the handset through lesser-known retailers.

At the moment, there are at least four online retailers wiling to sell you a OnePlus One, though all are asking a bit more than the smartphone’s official price.

If you’re based in Germany, France, Italy, or Spain, retailer Lenteen lets you order a OnePlus One 16GB for €294.99. Lenteen is importing the handset from Hong Kong, so shipping (via DHL) costs an extra €19.99. That means a total of €314.98 for a OnePlus One 16GB, instead of its official €269 (or $299) price.

Other retailers that reportedly have the OnePlus One 16GB in stock are: Flosmall ($416, including free shipping worldwide), SPEmall ($397.99), and OppoMart ($399.99).

So, anyone willing to try their luck and order this "flagship killer"? If yes, check out the source links below.

16gb models? No thanks, the 64 models will bleed out into retail eventually.

You could make that the company motto, I'm still snagging one when available if it's not a insanely long time from now. Its hard for me to stay mad at this.

the oneplus one isn't really that cheap. A lot of Chinese OEMS are selling high-end well-spec'ed phones at a price similar to OnePlus, I highly doubt OnePlus is losing money on these phones. I think they use the invite system to measure international demand/create hype for their products

Not really cheap, true. But seemingly fair priced imo. Your last thought in my opinion couldn't be more accurate. But I don't see it as a foul play myself. Otherwise I don't they could halted 16gb production so easily to make 64s after seeing interest in them.

G3 itself is messed up. Stop the hype already.

Am I the only one feeling like the G3 isn't a great device, marginally better than the G2 in some regards and worse in other respect?

Be very careful if you order from one of these resellers. There are 2 different versions of the OnePlus One - beyond the 16/64 GB models. There's the "international" version, with all sorts of LTE compatable bands running CM11s. Then there's the Chinese version, which has limited LTE compatable bands and runs ColorOS. A couple people have already been burned by OppoMart receiving the Chinese version, despite the pictures and specs suggesting that it's the international version.

I have few hundred pounds of hype left from the time I wanted this phone. Anyone interested? Willing to unload it all for 0.50$/Lb.

Xioami has cheaper phones than OPO that are just as good, OPO only advantage is they are supporting carriers outside of china.

OnePlus probably sold all the extra buggy beta phones to some retailers in China.

There are even 64GB ones on for sale at other retailers, though at a little extra. Estnext has them for 40 euros extra compared to the 16gb version.
