Chasing the Flagship killer

Howdy all it has been some time since i posted here

Cutting to the chase there is this phone called One + one Home - OnePlus.net $349.00 super duper phone right ?

The problem is I have been following for months and the company is just playing games with people doing dumb contest and can't even explain why they don't have a date for the phone to be on general market

Also to add further stress they send out phones won in a contest as beta tester phones who in the heck does this ?

Is it me or am i really missing something here with this company also to top it off only way to truly get a phone is through the Forum and Invite system has anyone else been trying to get this phone as well ?

I would say, I think you need to take a step back from the table on this one.
I can't imagine letting a company blow so much sunshine up my keister then getting so obsessed about it. Well, there was that time I was shopping around for a new log splitter. All Im saying is do you really want to let any company tech or not drag you around like a hooked fish? Its not right.

You are correct but i have looked into alternatives

The thing is though i am not in a rush for it because i have a working phone the only issue is getting my hands on one
The information they provide says nothing of real value they just need a real date and the invite system is a big joke and they never post the winners they show up randomly it's just weird

Yeah, it's an absurd marketing approach Tommy. If it was me I'd put them on my BS and Ignore Forever lists.

The price is too good to be true, there must be some things that are not good. It could be a complete scam for having people break their phone and keeping it a secret, maybe it is not. We may not even know for 5 years.

I reckon that is supposed to be a "I want it now" review, but after reading it is a definite pass for me. Seems to be another phone trying to copy another phone.

Well i got some news for you guys that phone is still being waited on i have spent a whole month of my life in their forums trying to win one that would explain me not being here so often

oneplus.net/ people are still hopeful but as for me i got sick of that crap and got me something just as good

This phone does n't do LTE but HSPA+4G which is good enough for me

Just a few shots of the phone i have already rooted it and changed to a Windows 8 UI all the other pics are of the normal UI

Windows 7: Linux Killer, Or Windows Killer?
The newest installment of Conventional Computer Wisdom holds that Windows 7 will be "a Linux-killer," unseating Linux on netbooks and sealing its fate on the desktop. Well, maybe XP-killer and Vista-killer is more like it. The details (as mused over at ComputerWorld.com) go something like this....
