You'll no longer be able to reserve the OnePlus 2 after October 22

OnePlus has announced that the reservation system for the OnePlus 2 will close on October 22. After this date it will no longer be possible for anyone to reserve a unit for themselves while the company attempts to honor reservations already placed. The plan is to roll out as many units as possible without overshooting and letting consumers down.

Those who have already reserved (or will do so within the week) will eventually receive their invites, depending on where they happen to be located in the queue. And these positions will be locked from October 22 too, so where you end up next week will be where you remain until you're finally able to make the purchase.

Not all hope is lost for those who miss out, however. OnePlus will still pump out shareable invites to those who purchase the smartphone and contests will also run on social media to hand out a few invitations. See the official announcement for more details.

  • I moved on months ago. No longer interested. Seems like we are begging a company to do business with us. Posted via the Android Central App

  • Come on. The little Chinese kids need a day of once a year... +++ Insert witty signature, watch as others not get it, profit +++
  • Got my invite yesterday.
    Deleted the email as I had already bought a LG G4 months ago.
    They really need to do something a about the horrid invite system of they ever want to be a real choice and gain any significant market share.
  • Same here. But before deleting the email I clicked on the link and it said, basically, "oh no your invite has expired you're not cool enough to own one of our phones" These guys are a bunch of dicks and I hope they learn their lesson some day LG G4 H818N Dual-SIM on Movistar Spain
  • Wow really? That's just wrong. I'm not even trying with them. Got my pre-ordered of the 6P so I'm good. Has everything I need and more so. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Similar situation for me...I had *just* got done activating my new iPhone 6S Plus when the OnePlus e-mail came alerting me to the fact that I could now purchase one. I opened the e-mail, which stated my invitation expires in 24 hours. F them man.
  • I wouldn't bother
  • Shit's getting real old here. 'The plan is to roll out as many units as possible without overshooting and letting consumers down.' without letting them down? hehehe..most have just probably moved on to another unit. It's mass market with a mass product category. We aint talking about ordering and waiting for a Ferrari here. It's a fricken smartphone, and probably not the best value for money either. It was fun for everybody to see them disguise their manufacturing shortcomings when the first phone came out. Now it's just...well...let's hope they get their shit together by the time the next one comes.
  • Cant make it up! I'm having a party, but don't bother to RSVP, as no one is invited.
  • Chad, is that you? You haven't changed since grade school... Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is like, apple worship levels of crazy if you are still holding out hope to be invited to purchase a smartphone that is truly not unique.

  • It's meeting the man of my dreams
    And then meeting his beautiful wife

  • Lol.. I miss the 90s Posted via the Android Central App
  • This whole OPT 'titanic-of-a-charade', is seriously equal to watching somebody on a Stairmaster at the gym. The first and only words that come to anyone's head is "that poor bastard." Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • People are still interested in this bs? There are so many comparable options this year that DONT make you jump through hoops. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I got 3 invite, 1 gave it to my friend in Hong Kong, another 2 deleted. Might thought of supporting OnePlus but not this year. Posted via the Android Central App by OnePlus One
  • I've gotten multiple invite emails too. I bought one, but I still haven't gotten my shareable invites. I'm just gonna use it until I get my 6P, then sell it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I bet OnePlus needed a invite just to send those emails out to people. Their company is a big scam. Posted via The Next Big Thing. My Samsung Galaxy Note 5!
  • I wonder how many people are still interested in One Plus at this point thanks to their shenanigans. I also wonder how many phones they sold on their non-invite day this week. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Attempt to honor... That speaks volume Posted via the Android Central App
  • Good point
  • I let my invite expire months ago. My OPO is a better device and I picked up a Note 5 as well. Way late for this company and the OP2.
  • My gut said that they are not big enough to hold onto inventory, thus they go to this invite system to manage their inventory. The other issue is that there are kids running the company, kids who think this or that is cool and do not think like an adult and understand that they have to run it like a business. My guess, either they will grow up or they will fail, not the first nor the last time this sort of thing will happen. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Who is buying this? Seriously Posted via the Android Central App
  • Stop giving these guys free publicity. They don't deserve it. They have exhausted all of the goodwill their potential customers had. I passed on two invites for this turd. I'd rather have just about any other phone this year, including the Moto X Pure. Screw them.
  • The Android central app updated and looking good! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Wonder if they needed a invite in order to update the AC app!! Posted via The Next Big Thing. My Samsung Galaxy Note 5!
  • You mean, at The AC App for Android™ I wonder if this is intentionally the worst app name possible, as a troll to Google, for not letting them just call it Android Central... (AC - oh, it controls my Air Con? Cool - App - It's an app? As opposed to a grapefruit? - For Android™ - You mean it's not an iOS app? In the Google Play Store?) Joking aside, it's a great app, and the redesign looks great, well done. Posted via the Android Central App
  • New material design is looking good so far Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'd like to thank 1+ from the bottom of my bottom.... failure to get 1+1 last yr and awful invite bollox meant i got my current squeeze, its not 1+ and it never will be.... I learnt my lesson bye bye Mr pie... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I lost all respect for them when I learned they were allowing bumping in the queue. Taking reservations for limited inventory is one thing, but it should be first come, first serve. The fact I could be pushed down the list made me lose all interest. Posted via the Android Central App
  • So 1+ is releasing a new phone, when they can't even sell you the current one properly. Womp Womp Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unavailability is its best feature.... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Next thing you know BlackBerry will only be selling their Priv through Invites.
  • Who cares! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yep, and didn't care the last time either...
  • I signed up for an invite and was about 10-15k in line, and at this point I don't know if there was a problem or if I just won't ever see the invite. In either case, I moved on. Posted via the Android Central App
  • the line was "dynamic"... people spamming friends via email, facebook and twitter got ahead of you in line.
    at first i was 170k, after a couple of weeks i slipped to 700k.
    i got my invite a couple of weeks ago (and thrashed it).
  • "...without overshooting and letting consumers down." Didn't that happen when they announced the phone would be available using the same bullshit invite system from before? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a OnePlus One and I like the phone but OnePlus is a joke as a company Posted via the OnePlus One (Cyanogen OS 12.1 w/ Nova Prime)
  • Rix....the phone and the company are a joke. That phone is a piece of *hit Posted via the Android Central App
  • I deleted my invite a month ago. Why would I trade away my Note5 for that piece of garbage? Posted via the Android Central App on the Note5.
  • They've gone from hard to get to hard to want.
  • So are they basically saying they'll fulfill current invites and then no longer sell the phone?
  • Bleh. This company is just circling the drain. I just received my second OPT invite that I never asked for.
  • Don't they ha either another phone coming? My guess is they are retiring this disaster to unleash an all new disaster upon the world. Kinda reminds me of Pacific rim +++ Insert witty signature, watch as others not get it, profit +++
  • Oh, the OnePlus X. X because you can't get one...again. Here lies the "2016 Flagship Killer". It got slayed by 2015 flagships like the LG G4 being used to post this.
  • That X belongs to my moto.... but they can keep the 810... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I purchased Moto X Pure well over a month ago, only to receive an invite almost two weeks later. Seeing as the device turned out to be such a let down, I am very content with my choice. I can't imaging going without fast charging any more, especially since manufacturers are still trying to make their devices as thin as possible. Posted via the Android Central App
  • OH NO! WHAT SHALL I EVER DO!!! - No One
  • For all of us who don't have this phone we should consider ourselves lucky. Screw the nonsense. Dam It's Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • I find it funny about their advertising.
    Especially about that Snapdragon 810. They basically turned it into an 808 because 2 A57 clusters are shut off during heavier use, not to mention it throttles STILL and made the battery life somewhat worse than the OPO. I've seen an LG G4 run Geekbench for 10 minutes straight and it didn't throttle. Same goes for the S6 and iPhone 6S Here lies the "2016 Flagship Killer". It got slayed by 2015 flagships like the LG G4 being used to post this.
  • Or you could just buy a smartphone from a company that lets you buy their products instead of playing games with this ridiculous farce of a company.
  • BTW.... This new material design on the updated Android Central app is amazing. Great job!!!!!! Dam It's Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • Too late. Already pre-ordered my Nexus. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Waiting for my "invite" for the 6P 128gb Frost. Yup, I got waitlisted.
  • I've read about a new 5 inches OPO for $220. I don't know if that's only a rumor but I'll wait for it to try it out. Posted via the Android Central App on Moto X 2014/Moto G3/Moto G1/Lenovo Tab S8/ Lenovo Yoga 11 on $35 Cricket wireless plan.
  • When they announced that their new flagship phone didn't have NFC I shrugged, shook my head slowly and walked away.
  • This is getting old fast Posted via the Android Central App
  • OnePlus could market normally like other companies selling internationally, but then their prices would rise. OnePlus stays afloat and makes money in an industry with razor-thin margins by ensuring they aren't left with any unsold inventory.
    There are plenty of other choices, many with fewer or at least different types of hoops to contend with. So deal with it, or don't.
  • Still can't believe all of the fan boys and girls on the oneplus website but I guess to each his own. I too moved on a month ago, purchased the Moto X pure which works great on straight talk Verizon CDMA after using their CDMA activation kit which comes with a nano SIM. Also enjoy the quick charging and Android pay.
  • The 2 just doesn't seem that great of a upgrade from the 1 to interest me. The 1 is still a great device and I enjoy using it along with my nexus devices. Maybe the 3 will stimulate my interest. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Broken. Hey OP, Take your broke broke home. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hot product, lukewarm marketing strategy. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I returned my OP2 to Amazon yesterday. Don't need your invitee.. :D Jokes apart, I retuened it for 2 reasons-
    1. Battery life is always a problem for me with every phone. Having my phone down at 5pm, I need a quick charge at my office. No quick charge and USB-C cable doesn't do any good for people like me, specially when no one in the nearby market sells the cable at the moment. I'm sure it will be available in a couple of months, but what happens till then?
    2. Asus zenfone 2 (4gb) with quick charge, and nearly 40% cheaper than it during the big billion sale here just nailed it for me. Surely, the OP2 is just so damn beautiful and better to hold than asus (my wife already has 1). But so much of price difference in similar configuration phones from 2 Asians doesn't justify sticking with op2. Hence returned it yesterday and ordered the zenfone 2 for me also.

  • I don't want to see news about this one plus rubbish again. Complete nonsenses and a shambles. My next phone will be a Microsoft Lumia 950 XL don't mind the wait since HTC have nothing flagship like this year. Posted via the Android Central App
  • "without overshooting and letting consumers down"
    definitely too late.
  • Got my invite on October 6th. I didn't check my email till the 8th. Needless to say I won't be buying one, not that I would anyways because I was waiting for months.
