Are you still going to purchase a One plus One or at this point might as well wait for the Nexus or Moto Pure?
Cr I hear you and you right at the end of the day we talking about a back cover and if that was the only thing then this thread would be nitpicking. But when you add that to other stuff it misses on its potential. I am sure you right that it is a decent phone but at the end of the day tech have a short window to make its mark. And if you make it hard to purchase and for those who have it getting replacements, for malfunctioning devices, becomess headache you get more bad pub than good pub. Considering the market the device is targeted toward (nexus, android enthusiasts) it already is a small group and they are competing again the nexus line and now the moto pure. If one is going to become more than a trivia question they are going to make some corrections particularly with the difficulty of getting a device.I think people are counting this phone out before they even give it a chance. And threads like this aren't helping matters lol
Seriously though, if you talk to any of our One Plus members and they'll all tell you its one of the best, if not THE best, Android device they've ever owned. The 4 members (big number right..lol) I know personally are all "Android veterans" if you will, so these "views" aren't coming from just anyone.
Aside from that, take a look at the track record from every well established manufacturer. Every single one of them has had one issue or another with almost every new device they've released over the years. Point is, these things happen. This isn't even the stock cover we're talking about, it's an alternate cover and is wooden for cripessake. If I recall correctly, the original Moto X had similar problems with their bamboo cover.
I'm just saying. ...its one thing to post a news story, but c'mon. In the grand scheme of things, this cover has nothing to do with the actual phone itself. The article (as well as past articles from the manufacturer ) tells me that this is company is trying hard to compete in a cutthroat market and that they clearly learn from their mistakes. (just as they did with the invite debacle) Their decision to not release a subpar "accessory " was a smart move imo.
I'm all for giving them a fighting chance. They certainly have a much better device than what many larger manufacturers have tried to release on their first try. (-cough- Amazon -cough-)
