Yeah i got an invite relatively fast, maybe about a month after registering to the forum. Made about 4 jokes on the forum and bam woke up one morning to an email invite. I was coming from an S3 so the difference is of course night and day. I wouldn't compare it to S5 just because S5 doesn't look good.
I mean, s5 looks the same as it's predecessors. But the internal parts are pretty much the same except you get more ram in the OnePLus than the S5 and G3. Other than that same chips, slightly different camera stats, different sizes, but all around all similar just about preference. I like the clean operating system in the one as opposed to locked phones with clutter from carriers(att, verizon) and addons like Sense. I like the double tap to wake up. Hardly ever have to press the power button
. But i'm sure s5 and even HTC one m8 will have something cool too.
Worst thing is right now i heard that customer service for the ONEPLUS is poop. So hopefully I don't drop it or anything.
