This is literally the best ever.

Being a part of #OnePlus  is without a doubt the biggest thing I've ever done. Judging by today's interest and feedback it's clear that we're in the process of disrupting an industry dominated by some of the biggest companies in the world. A team of currently 18 people working 4 months on the entire international part of OnePlus.

Looking forward to all of you joining us in this journey.

Gotta love the Android "community" sometimes.

When Cyanogen Inc was first announced, there was a small but vocal group who cried foul. CM was just in it for the money now, and it was only a matter of time before things were going to change. A knee-jerk reaction to be sure, and kinda funny when you see now that they have now open sourced more of their work than ever before, but that initial reaction stuck with some.

I reached out to a few of the other ROM guys from other groups to get their thoughts on things, and I got an amazing reaction from one of them. They said "if anything, it makes us work harder now because we know there's a chance for something like that to happen to us someday."

Fast forward to today, when prominent developers from two other projects are hired by Cyanogen Inc. The response by that same vocal minority? "I guess money talks" and "Cyanogen is buying up all the talent". It's as though these incredibly talented developers couldn't possibly get jobs anywhere else, and CM had their kids hostage or something. It couldn't possibly be that they chose to take part in something willingly because they wanted to, or because they saw potential in a company that was accomplishing a goal that most of these guys have had for years.

Forced narratives are fun and all, but eventually bullshit is just bullshit.

It's finally happening! #NeverSettle #ChangeTheWorld  
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.

Why are people still talking about max screen sizes? It's phone size and comfort that matters.
