Let’s recap my history with OnePlus:

  • In July 2017 I bought a OnePlus 5
  • It was a lemon, within the first hour it rebooted 5 times, 20+ the first day.
  • I sent it back and it took them 4 months to acknowledge and refund me
  • YESTERDAY they sent me an email titled “We’d like to hear your voice for your recent experience”.

OnePlus, be careful what you ask for. You are going to hear my voice.
