After creating a lot of hype for themselves, and showing off an exciting device, the tide has shifted for OnePlus. They have had countless issues and delays with the OnePlus One. Prospective customers are getting impatient and upset. Unfortunately for OnePlus, yet another issue has delayed the phone again. This time it has to do with CyanogenMod and the software.
Invites for the device were supposed to go out in May, but software bugs held them back. The most recent delay is also due to software problems. It recently recieved a major software update, and now CyanogenMod and OnePlus are working on perfecting it. OnePlus says:
“we can’t yet confirm the exact date that the phone will ship. We are tirelessly working to make the One the phone you’ve been waiting for and so we’re going to hold off until we know that everything runs smoothly before sending them off.”
Before we all rush to bash OnePlus again let’s remember that CyanogenMod is in this too. They are responsible for the software on the OnePlus One, which has been causing delays. With all the hypebeasting that OnePlus did on social media it’s easy to backlash. They are still a small start-up company that has never released a phone before. Problems are inevitable.
