@Bambino  Not sure if you have read this about the One Plus Two. ...Info released yesterday? Possibly invite only again?

Thanks for the link @Cleoriff Some of it is rehashed stuff I've read before, but some of it was new. Unfortunately, it's all still too speculative. I think this invite thing is ridiculous. Maybe it's because they don't have the capacity to make phones on a large enough scale, but limiting it to invite only, if that's what they're intending to do again, will just put me off and push me to a different phone.

Re: Top 10 phones of 2015?

@Bambino  Re the invite system. When they released the One Plus One... initially the invite involved smashing up your existing phone in a creative way Rolleys Apparently they soon changed their minds on that!

"To get a OnePlus One, you had to sign up and try to get an invitation. Once you were invited, you had to destroy your current feature phone in a creative way and catch it on tape. This destructive marketing ploy was quickly remedied, giving those interested the option of donating the phone. Hopefully OnePlus will rethink their marketing ploys for the OnePlus Two, but it looks like the "invite-only" sales system will remain in place".  (Androidpit Jan 2015)

I still think it's a bad marketing ploy. If it did something that no other phone could do, then maybe I could understand making it exclusive, but it doesn't. It's just another Android phone with a different UI. If they do it by invitiation only again, they'll just be shooting themselves in the foot. If I want to buy a phone at a given moment, that's when I'll buy it. I'm not going to be held to ransom waiting to see if my application for an invitation is accepted or not.

I couldn't agree more @Bambino this phone is anything but exclusive but I can see how that might appeal to people of a certain disposition. If I want a phone I buy it and wouldn't bother with one that I have to go out of my way to own.
