Priced under $500 doesn't mean $499. The OnePlus One will definitely be available for under $400. #NeverSettle  +OnePlus

Never Settle

Today is a special day for me, because today my startup +OnePlus is born.

OnePlus is the realization of my long-standing dream to create a global and innovative company. It is also an opportunity for a group of young people to make their mark on the world. I hope for it to eventually become a playground for tech lovers around the globe.

What kind of a company will OnePlus be? Since leaving +OPPO I’ve spoken with many friends and influencers in the mobile and internet industries. Many visions and opinions were bounced around but we kept returning to one central idea: make the best possible product for users worldwide.

The desire to pursue this goal has been growing inside me since my days leading the Blu-ray division at OPPO. I remember how proud I felt at CES when our OPPO Blu-ray players were spoken of with awe and admiration.

Looking at the smartphone market right now, I see a lot of wannabes but few truly outstanding products fit for the demanding consumer. That's what I want to address with OnePlus.

It's a hard road ahead as I transition from my role as an employee to that of entrepreneur and launch a company from scratch. There will be many difficulties to overcome. I draw my strength and resolve from the success of OPPO's Blu-ray players and the overwhelmingly positive feedback for the OPPO Find 5.

I would like to thank OPPO and Tony for their support. I have spent my entire career thus far with this noble and forward-thinking company. Not every product engineer gets access to such a great platform and opportunity, and for that I will remain eternally grateful to OPPO.

A new year, a new beginning. Expect to hear great things from us in 2014.

I've owned a few external battery packs, but they are never full when I need them. When I finally decide to charge them, I find it takes too long. I've not yet found anything that suits me. Who else feels this way?

I can't judge his reasons, because; I do not know what it is like for him to do what he does, but I feel that the style he is going for could use some support; both in the design and the software. Design means nothing if the software can't keep up.

Today is my last day at OPPO.

Over the course of my career, I have worked as a hardware engineer, eventually became the director of the Blu-Ray division and finally led our marketing team through many challenges in our pursuit of creating a great mobile brand. There are a lot of memories I will cherish from my time at OPPO.

OPPO has always and will continue to create exquisite products. Incredible build quality and beautiful design are core strengths of OPPO, and ones that are now deeply integrated in my blood from fifteen years of working here.

I would like to thank my colleagues who have fought side by side with me. I'd also like to extend my thanks to Tony, and friends from all over the world, for their enduring support over the years! #OPPO

+Sivan Rehan That's what the OnePlus said. But can you find any evidence for that? 

Searching for “OPPO Electronic” on Google brings up an “OPPO Electronic” knowledge base card on the right, which links to the OPPO that makes smartphones -- the entity OnePlus says is not OPPO electronic but instead OPPO Mobile. 

And the Wikipedia page for “OPPO Electronics” says that the company is an an electronics manufacturer, not an investment company. Further, the article says that the Chinese translates as “Guangdong Oppo Mobile Communications Co., Ltd.” 

(OPPO Digital, which is a California company that licenses the name from Oppo.)

There's only one company web site: http://global.oppo.com

If that's the so-called "OPPO Mobile," where's the web site for the so-called "OPPO Electronic"?

As far as I can tell, OPPO Electronic and OPPO Mobile are one and the same company.

Dear Sir
This is Avinash Verma,I bought one plus one in february ,IMEI 865800022415878. I would like to bring to your kind notice about my issue regarding one plus one. Whenever I talk with anyone they complain that they are not able to hear my voice properly(It's like lot of disturbance).
I started facing mic issue around last month. So gave it to service centre  Regenersis (India) Private Limited, Karve Road, Pune- 411 004 on 2nd July. They charged me Rs. 1315(Please see the scan copy of the bill with attachments).I got my phone from back on 3rd July. After 1 day again I started getting same problem. So I approached Service Centre again on 7th July. I got a call from Service Centre on 9th July. So I went there, and again the problem was same. The problem was not taken into action. Instead the Service centre guy told me to change my sim card. On asking for explanation he brought a fresh one plus one piece and inserted my sim into that phone, but there was no problem while communicating. So he told he will look further and told me to leave the phone. On 10th July I got a call from service centre, So I approached. I verified and there was no problem with mic.The Service centre guy told me that he had installed Oxygen OS in my phone. It was all good until yesterday.
I started getting problem again.I can't afford to go to Service Centre again and again when you invest Rs.22098 on a phone. It's not even 6 months buying the phone and facing the problem again and again. It's terrible to see that. I am pursuing my Internship, Timing for Internship is 9:30 to 5:30 everyday(except sundays),and the Service centre is 15Km away from my place and is open till 6 p.m. I can't afford to go to Service Centre again and again.It is distracting me from Internship. I am losing my patience. There is a lot of expectations from a phone when you buy it for 23k.
Sir, I would be highly obliged if you look into this grave matter and take an appropriate action.
Regards

When I met +Steve Kondik and +Koushik Dutta a few weeks ago, they shared their plans for the future of +Cyanogen Inc. with me. I have great faith in their product and their team, and look forward to what’s coming.
 
What's next?

A few weeks ago, +Koushik Dutta and I were able to meet with +Pete Lau in Shenzhen and we began discussing our vision for a phone that would fuse truly amazing software with the highest quality hardware available. Together, we’re setting out to create that product. Stay tuned.

Hi ,

Worst Voice customer support experienced .....One rep Vishal was one of the horrible person I spoke in the customer support after a long time.......

This cannot get any better its been close to two weeks still i will not receive my handset this is really disgusting...one of the customer rep whom i spoke on 2nd April confirmed that I would receive the replacement ...if the customer service center initiates the process.

Today this person Vishal is telling a different thing I will get  my handset repaired ...Well I would want my phone to be replaced now...

If this is the process...I will have to initiate a legal action on the company and also put in my comments in your blogs so that feature buyers would be aware of your policy and process of customer service and delay .....

One of bizarre thing heard from Vishal was he said there is reporting manager and also there is no escalation process and also said he cannot transfer call ...

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERICENE..

PLEASE PROVIDE ME THE WHAOM TO CONTACT IF I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE FROM CUSTOMER SUPPORT..
