OnePlus Finally Begins Open Sales Of The One, No Invite Necessary; Co-Founder Teases 'OK OnePlus' Voice Activation Feature

A little less than one year ago, I called the OnePlus One "the best flagship phone you can't buy" in my initial review. The phone had some impressive hardware at an amazing price, and in many ways it still does, but the system of invitations and qualifications built around actually buying the One made obtaining the device an exercise in frustration. It's taken them eleven months (and what seems like dozens of separate promotions and half-measures), but you can finally order a OnePlus One without an invitation of any kind starting today.

OnePlus has made some missteps in the last year as it slowly rolled out the OnePlus One. For those who were able to buy the invite-only phone, the lacking customer service was a common complaint. According to a new post on the OnePlus blog, they've been working to fix that and have made good progress. So if you could please stop yelling at them, they'd appreciate it.

OnePlus Misses Self-Imposed Deadline For Releasing OxygenOS ROM, Promises Daily Progress Reports Going Forward

Eventually dubbed OxygenOS, the company has been working on getting the software out the door for several months. OnePlus promised to have it done by March 27th (today), but that's not happening.

They won't have to wait much longer: an official OnePlus representative told members of the company forum that the updates will begin on March 27th, just a little over a week from now.
