What's your opinion of OnePlus? (poll results)

What's your opinion of OnePlus? (poll results)
Yesterday, we asked you what your opinion of Chinese upstart OnePlus One is, and nearly two thousand of you made their feelings known by voting in our poll. Before we get to the numbers, it's worth pointing out that the question wasn't random at all random. 

OnePlus took the industry by storm, at least in terms of the amount of attention it, a measly startup from a far-away land, took away form mainstream manufacturers and, indeed, local competitors. If you searched our own database, you'd find that we alone have hundreds of news pieces dedicated to the company. Despite all of the this, OnePlus' only smartphone — the One — isn't without its problems. From reportedly poor customer service, to recurring issues that many felt weren't addressed for way too long, it's fair to say that the company has quite a few critics. Add in the nastiness that was the invite system (you needed one in order to buy the phone), and it makes sense that we're looking to take your pulse on the matter. So what says you?

Well, quite surprisingly, the vast majority of respondents actually have a positive opinion of OnePlus — 63.78% of the votes, to be exact. On the other hand, 12.95% are critical of the company. Inbetween those two groups sit 23.26% of voters, who are neutral towards it. Surprised?

Generally positive, but has its ups and downs.

True! But i feel it lost its value! I mean this will cost 450 while the ASUS with 4GB right now only costs 300. I don't know if the software is tha tmuch better to justify 50% more.

Did OnePlus pay you for this poll ? Why you are specifically asking for opinions about this company ?

I would guess b/c they have been quite polarizing, especially to the avid Android fans. 1-they partnered with Cyanogen, which was pretty awesome for many. 2-They offered a great device at a great price. Then they did the whole invite thing and pissed a lot of people off. Then they cut ties with cyanogen and made Oxygen OS, which ruffled more feathers. I would deduce that PA just wanted to know where we stood, opinion-wise, after all of that. Or maybe OnePlus paid for this lol.

Are you mad? OPO makes a considerably smaller profit compared to other OEMs. In that profit they have to pay for many things such as Employees etc. Do they have time and money to pay PA?

But still over 36% saw the company in a neutral or negative light, and that isn't so hot. Most of these votes because the invite system to buy, the lame promotions they have done, and the problems with the touchscreen that plague the device, came from these votes.

I would really like to get my hands on one but I do not want to pay for it.

OnePlus is all about the hype right now. Too much space to grow into but too little time to do since they overhyped themselves. That draws a significant amount of ire from consumers since there was so much promise to live up to, but only few got the chance to become the reality.
