OnePlus One takes the first steps toward bringing its phone to India
OnePlus has started the journey that will result with the OnePlus One being offered to consumers in India. The manufacturer said that it had seen plenty of interest in the country for its value priced flagship smartphone, and has even posted a job offering, seeking a General Manager for its Indian operations. The company is looking to fill the position with a local applicant.

It has not been smooth sailing for OnePlus with the launch of its first handset. There have been some issues involving certain contests, including a recent promotion that was scrapped for being sexist. One issue that the company has been accused of running away from, is a yellowing of the screen, similar to what happened with the Apple iPhone 4 after that model was launched in 2010. OnePlus customers have accused the manufacturer of covering up posts related to the screen problem, that were published on the company's website.

Earlier this month, an update was sent out to OnePlusOne owners that repaired many of the problems that the phone had been suffering from. The update also offers a cooler calibration for the screen, hoping to remove the yellow tint.

It isn't clear how long it will be until invitations are issued in India for the OnePlus One.

They should be taking steps towards producing the phone instead of spreading their already thin inventory to other countries.

No, they should bring them to Nigeria and market it real good... Ergo Samsung's sales will be theirs (one plus me). They should stop derping around.

i have this phone and it really does kill all other 2014s. sold my s5, gets extrmely laggy after a few months. sold my g3, battery is terrible. closest imo is probably the m8 but i like the oneplus better

I've owned many phones myself and its up there with the best of them. Also with all the cm11 mods it's truly amazing. 4.4.4 on it, takes amazing videos and I've not experienced any yellowing on the screen. Love my opo

Did the same, traded my S5 for a oneplus one. Pretty happy with the decision. Unlocked the bootloader last night and loaded a AOSP rom onto it. If the M8 camera wasnt so terrible, it'd be a close run for which one I like more. Both get great battery life and have awesome user experiences. Both have a dev community for tinkering (xposed is pretty awesome on the M8). The M8 has the sound and sd card advantage. The OP has a the larger sceen and better camera...and of course the price difference

In India, OnePlus should be able to get a lot of information on potential phone buyers that they can sell.

Unfortunately, those lame contest promos to win an invite are to be expected. such as : ''Dress in your raunchy Bollywood attire and win an invite'' or ''Write a 1,000-word essay on why do you deserve to get an invite''
