How do you guys find the 5.5" screen? 
To big or just right?

mouarg: My 64 GB OPO arrived this morning! Didnt have to pay any duty [thanks to InsaneKiwi's advice ]

Loving it so far. Super grunty and easy to use. Camera quality is awesome, have taken a few outdoor pics in the sun. Have not tested pics in low light or when indoors.

Picking up LTE so looks like its the right version for VF 4G.

Maxed out the 3D Mark Ice Storm Extreme test. Scored 19762 in the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited Android benchmark test.  http://bit.ly/3dmark-android. My collegaues HTC One M7 scored only 8K in the unlimited test.
Signed up for a Cynogenmod account and have recieved three software updates so far. Running 4.4.4 CynogenMod v11.0-XNPH30O and has just prompted me that XNPH33R is available, should I?

Has exceeded my expectations so far and I can't see the yellow screen issue. Will google and see how to spot it.


Very happy for you mate. Don't look for yellow screen. If you don't see it - just leave it at that. :-)
5.5" seems big at first but you will be surprised how fast you get used to it. I used OPO for a week then gave it to my wife who likes big phones for Youtubes - and going back to my M8 was like going back to iPhone 4....

I agree with nice camera - front and back. Takes really nice shots.

Size of the phone isn't a problem for me and I used to be adverse to the idea of a large phone.

I have two more invites, who wants them?
I think they'll expire tomorrow afternoon/night so you'll need to use them quickly. Currently showing two days left.

ARe the invites for the international model direct from OnePlus? Sold from the states, hence the use of YouShop??

mrtoken: enjoy it mouarg, I would get one but I am waiting for the nexus 6/x to see what that will be.
If the nexus 6 is no good or to big then I will get a one+ as CynogenMod is a major selling point for me.


I would probably wait for Nexus 6 if you are not in a hurry.  [Not suggesting OPO is not a good phone]

mrtoken: How do you guys find the 5.5" screen? 
To big or just right?


Size definitelty plays on your mind and it might feel a bit awkward holding it especially if you are used to a 4" crappy android. Its a matter of getting used to as others have said here. Impressed with the build quality, nice solid metaly feel to it.

Insanekiwi: Very happy for you mate. Don't look for yellow screen. If you don't see it - just leave it at that. :-)

Cheers mate! Yeah i agree im not guna go looking for it. Camera kicks ass, especially when compared to a HTC One. Looking for a decent screen protector & flip case. Have heard good things about Rhino Shield
