SD820 + lower than $400 = 2016 Flagship killer! SD810 = 2015 Flagship's killer!

it'd be cool if they were just trolling the world and they drop the mic with a 2.5ghz processor, fingerprint scanner, 4gig ram and a 4000mah battery. Do i think this? No But it'd be cool

killer my ass! it's coming with same spec as some other phones have more then 6 months. and it's not cheep... it't won't have any chanse with it's "invites" against ZTE Axon, which is 450 IN USA!!! same spec, similar price and with this invites sistem, tell's me that it won't kill Axon, but there is much more other deices that won't be "killed". let's just start with still not anounsed Xiaomi Mi5 (hope it will have better support then Mi4i) with similar price, then LG G4, Xperia Z3+ and many more, all of which in USA and EU cost as much as will One+ with TAX. and in China, there are allready many more devices based on same SoC with similar price. so One+ will have to do somethig special,and i just don't see anything special about them. so, if this device kill anyone, it will be people who have big expecations from it's sale.

Maybe they're assuming that Samsung S7 will have three more important features removed.

It was and is a good phone, but OnePlus touted the 2014 One as a Flagship Killer too, and the Flagships aren't dead.

I wish TI still made Sons or that Nvidia was actually competitive.

The 2016 is definitely not a typo.. They're just being realistic when someone might actually get their hands on one. Because of their crappy invite system... ;-)

Arrogant or not, it's savvy marketing. However, the slogan won't last long because unsubstantiated claims like that attract too much attention from regulatory bodies.

Maybe the 810 explodes and kills the user? Jokes aside, the 2015 financial year did just end at the end of June so it's now 2016 in their books.

I'm just waiting for all the unkowing users that will flock OP's forum and Facebook with performance issues, and many articles will be written on it. Looking forward.
