Over 750,000 people have already signed up for a OnePlus 2 invite

Over 750,000 people have already signed up for a OnePlus 2 invite
Earlier this week, after teasing and talking about it for months, OnePlus finally announced the OnePlus 2, its second smartphone. The handset is not yet available to buy, and, when it's going to be (starting August 11), customers won't be able to simply order it like ordering any other phone. That's because OnePlus hasn't ditched its controversial invite system that debuted with last year's OnePlus One, so you will need an invite to buy the new smartphone. However, this year, invites are easier to grab.

Here's how you can get an invite to buy the OnePlus 2 - which, by the way, for the beginning will be available only to customers in the US, Canada, Europe, China, and India. If you don't have an invite yet, OnePlus lets you sign up to receive one when available. Right now, over 750,000 people have signed up, obviously hoping that they will be able to buy the OnePlus 2 at some point. This means that the new handset could easily pass 1 million units sold in no time - assuming OnePlus has enough stock for everyone.

The OnePlus 2 will be sold starting at $329 - this gets you the 16 GB model. The 64 GB variant will cost $389. As previously reported, OnePlus hopes to sell up to 5 million smartphones by the end of 2015, and, judging by the attention that the OnePlus 2 is getting, it might reach its goal.

Not hating on the Oneplus 2, but with all the hardware issues the OP1 suffered, i would gladly take the Moto X Syle over it.

Agree, Moto x style is much better device. I guess, not even half of the registered people will buy that phone.

I registered for the 1+2. Moto X Pure Edition will be the phone I buy though. NFC + Quick Charge is worth the little extra $

Same here. Only one thing is keeping me from even considering the new Moto X though. The freaking size. Anything above 5.2 to 5.5 inches is a no go for me.

You know while I had 1+1 and I had non faulty device I would not risk again for one reason! I will go for Moto X Play. What will I get that OPO can't provide me? Existing customer service...and many other things stereo speakers, superb camera( OP2 should be beast too though) , great battery life. But main concern would be customer service and easy to use warranty policy.

That's the #1 reason I'm avoiding the OP2. I got lucky and got a defect free, save for the yellowish tint, which went away, but, their LACK OF support, irks me to no end. If you aren't going to have a pretty much no questions asked return policy, forget it.

IF Moto X style had a fingerprint scanner, I wouldn't think twice. For that reason I am picking up the Oneplus 2.

When the OPO was released last year, it was pretty much the only "high end" device you could purchase, for less than $400.00 but now, with the Moto-X line, and a few others, they aren't the only game in town. Given the problems with OnePlus (lack of) support, bugs, the insane invite system, purchasing it, then waiting THREE weeks for it to ship, it would be easier and safer to get the Moto-X. Just pop into a store, go online and have it sooner, plus, even if Lenovo owns the Moto brand, you can bet their support is far superior to that of OnePlus. It would be better in the long run, to pay the extra and get ALL the features of the Oppo Find7, from which the cheaper OnePlus 2 comes from, than deal with the headaches on the OnePlus2.

One + really messed up in 3 areas. In order of priority. NFC, Quick Charge, and Qi charging. In this darn age, NFC is a basic spec that should be in regardless. Lollipop even uses it to restore a phone.... I transfer photos to friends, i even forgot my wallet at home once and was still able to buy McDonalds for my kids. I even been at hospitals before and being able to get drink out of the machine. Wireless charge i can forgive if it had turbo charging... yes it has a 3300 mah battery, but since they say it takes 3 hrs and 20 mins to fully charge, either make it charge fast, or give me option to wirelessly keep it topped off, specually since u gotta have a type C cable...i dont wanna chase a plug, but i dont want to be stuck next to one for 3 hrs either... the only reason i would consider it,.... is if the reviews start to come next month saying that battery life is great and can get something awesome like 5+ SOT often. Not because i dont want to use it that long, but i want peace of mind that the only time i want to plug it is at night regardless of what i do during the day.

NFC isn't used by a majority of people, not including it isn't a big issue. Quick charge would be nice with such a large battery(but I have concerns that quick charge will degrade the capacity of the battery faster than it would occur normally). QI charging is a gimmick. You need to buy a more expensive extra pad just to charge the thing. My phone supports it, but I don't use it, as its not that hard to plug my phone in. The only benefit to qi charging is that it decreases wear on the usb port.

Not even considering this phone after the Moto X Pure announcement. First: I can actually buy one without an "invitation." Second: If I have a problem with the unit, I can just return a defective unit to my local Best Buy or send it back to Amazon.

i think this time around, since they sold over 1.5 million OPO's, they should've just produced a million this time around and opened the flood gates. i think they'll sell another cool million at least between now and the next one.

Beautiful (and boy is it beautiful), powerful, and affordable. 4 gigs of RAM is to die for.

Darkkjeddii... I never thought you'd be the only non hater in the comments section. I commend you!

Because he is already Dark, he cannot hate any more. On the other hand, I cannot stand this company. I will pay more for a crappier phone rather than paying a penny to these freaking assholes.

Since when does 4gb of ram make a phone the no1 choice? I have used countless android devices with 1-3gb ram and all of the 2-3gb had no issues what so ever and never felt the need of more RAM. You have been brainwashed sir!

17. Plutonium239

4GB of ram is more future proof.

A person who actually cares about 4 gigs of ram will never keep a phone long enough to matter. That person probably buys a phone every year if not more. I will say a tablet need 4 gigs, but I can't see what you would use it for on a phone at this time.

Some people that do care about specs do keep their phone long enough for it to matter. I personally would, unless something else that is much much more compelling and capable came along. For example, I will buy the upcoming Lumia 950xl(if it is called this) and if the rumors of a Lumia 1020 successor coming in 2016 is true, I will buy one of those as well.

Exactly! Future proof? The SOFTWARE apps that run on these things, can work on pretty much Froyo through Lollipop android versions. So, what good is it having a superduper processor, if you hamstring it with software that can't take advantage of all that processing power, not to mention people run one at a time (unless like me you run an app to split screen the apps). I'm running 2gb, snapdragon 400 processor on my Mate2, and it runs the apps just as well as the 8xx processors. One of my coworkers got a Nexus 6 this spring. We loaded the same apps on both devices and we really couldn't see any load or run differences between them. He sent it back a week later...said the performance boost wasn't worth DOUBLE the price of what I had.

Future proof as in, it will be able to easily run the next few versions of the without lagging due to insufficient specifications. If it even gets updates(which many android devices get left behind and never get many updates, unlike Windows Phone).

Cut that number down a bit. If you share on social and someone (possibly a second accoutn of yours) signs up for an invite through your link, then you will go down in the list. I was at about 85,000 on the list and then signed up with a different account and my first one shot down to about 6000 on the list

LOL!!!!!!!!!!! And they call Apple users sheeps. Pre ordering a device that had countless hardware issues last year. At the same time amazing price and specs from Motorola and not to mention many Chinese phones with similar specs and price.
