You can get a OnePlus One sans invite in the next 3 days, limited quantity in store!

Been eyeing the OnePlus One, the "flagship killer" of 2014, with pure pleasure during the past few months, but the necessary invite required to get one has been eluding you? Well, currently you can get whichever version of the phone you want without an invite! The deal will last for 72 hours or until stocks last, so don't think twice if the CyanogenMod-powered OnePlus One is the smartphone of your dreams. What an exciting Black Friday, isn't it?

Still, consider that OnePlus does not ship globally, but to select markets only. Also take into consideration that there has been no correction of the pricing. The 16GB Silk White version of the phone sells for $299, while the more memory-laden 64GB Sandstone Black one will set you back $349. Inside the OnePlus One, one can find a potent a quad-core Snapdragon 801 8974-AC silicon, clocked at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, a 3,100mAh juicer at the back, and a 5.5" 1080p display up front.

The ordered OnePlus One units will ship just in time for the Christmas Holidays, by December 25. Any takers?

Too late OnePlus. The Moto X (2014) is $359 with the Cyber Monday deal, and it has much better build quality and software support...

Storage and Battery suck though.

Thats the only minuses, on the plus side better built quality, better customization on exterior, almost immediate android updates, tons of accessories being a worldwide phone, more compact and more suitable for more people, front speakers. I really see no point for a failplus beside you wanting a really cheap big phone. Where you also can get a better G3 for same price.

:-/ Holding a OnePlus One right now I must say that the build quality on this phone is just as good as any other polycarbonate phone manufacturer, but the materials used feel excellent. Imo I prefer the textured back of this phone over aluminum phones like the M7, M8, and iPhone 6.

Also owning a OPO and a 2013 Moto X currently there is no comparison when it comes to battery life between my two phones. The OPO lasts all day and into the next day while my Moto X gets about 4 hours screen on time and is dead before 4pm. Some days it's dead before 1pm depends what I'm doing. I understand I'm comparing last year's Moto X vs the OPO, but the battery size on the 2014 is marginally bigger and many websites battery tests have shown that the battery performs comparably between the two years of Moto X.

Also 64 GB vs 16 GB is a huge difference. My OPO I can carry everything I've ever needed on a phone, I have every app installed that I normally use, multiple huge games, a 7 GB directory full of music videos and other ripped YouTube videos, two pined movies from Play Movies and more. On my Moto X I carry half of the apps I normally use, partially to not fill up space but also to not impact battery life, I don't carry any music videos, no games, no pinned movies and I have like 4 GB left for pictures to be taken.

Something you forgot to mention. The OPO camera is EXCELLENT, which the 2014 Moto X isn't. Also the downward firing dual speakers sound excellent and are plenty loud, the 2014 Moto X doesn't have dual front facing speakers, only the bottom one works. So who cares, neither has the sought after dual front firing speakers.

Sounds to me like you're talking out of your *** and you've never really used a OnePlus One side by side to a 2014 Moto X. And now I'm sure you'll claim you've owned both, I'm pretty sure you're lying.

you were doing good until you got to the camera part. they bothe use the exact same sensor and both take really good pics. the dual firing speakers are at the same loudness as the moto. but the moto has better sound coming out of its one speaker.

i sold my 2014 leather x and ended up a month later with the opo. the opo is good... but so is the x. i do love this opo battery life though. love it. love it.

I owned one, immediately sold for a G3... which is a way better phone in every regard, especially no CM11 rubbish.

the builds aren't much different. both are really nice phones. in overall usage (i have owned both)... i would give the edge to the opo.

One plus one does have a much better battery life and camera with larger internal storage

People need invites in order to buy something from them? What do they think they are?

I'm sure they're making their money but I personally think the invite strategy is ridiculous. I'll pass!!

The strategy makes a lot of sense for a startup; they only build phones for people who've committed to buy it, reducing the chance that they'll pay for stock they can't sell. The impact that has, or doesn't have, on their financial status makes it a lot more likely that they make it to a second phone.
