First let me applaud you on your flagship device. The OnePlus One is a remarkable piece of hardware. One that has been asked for by Android enthusiasts like myself for some time. The price point is superb and could easily compete with other OEM flagships out there. That being said, stop being a bunch of assholes.
If you looked up arrogance in the dictionary you would find your marketing campaign in the definition. You throw out words like “Flagship Killer” and “Never Settle” as if you’ve toppled your rivals and climbed to the top of the sales charts. Your latest online campaign of directly comparing your devices spec for spec next to what ever new flagship phone has come out is both inaccurate and laughable. Take the Galaxy Note 4 as an example. People who are considering the GN4 probably aren’t interested in OPO. The GN4 offers hardware and software features that the OPO can’t match. The S pen alone may be enough to sway prospective buyers.
As bad as you were against the GN4, the Moto X chart was even worse. Your little pot shots at Moto’s spec sheets seem to have left out a few things like customizable design, infrared sensors for hands free controls, fast updates to the latest version of Android, running stock. Funny how you criticized other manufacturers for long it takes to get updates, but the graphic you used for the Moto X doesn’t seem to mention that.
I want to buy the OnePlus One. On paper, it has everything I want. But I never will because I don’t want my hard earned cash to go to the people behind the OPO. People used to say that Samsung was the “Apple” of the Android world, but they’re wrong, it’s OnePlus. Just imagine the types of TV and radio ads we would be subjected to if OnePlus had the same type of marketing budget that Apple or Samsung has. Instead of letting the device do the talking, instead of showing us what it’s capable of, we get this. This ad campaign, on top of the invite system, the “sexist” contests, “yellow gate”, terrible customer service and “Never Settle”, demonstrates that this company isn’t ready for prime time and needs to seriously consider firing their entire PR staff and start a new approach at trying to win customers.
