    I got my phone yesterday, love it. If there is a yellow tint at the bottom it is so faint that I have a hard time perceiving it. Volumes are loud in every use case so far: speakerphone phone calls, earpiece phone calls, podcast playback using speaker, and YouTube playback using speaker.

    When I logged into my Google account almost all the apps I wanted autoinstalled. I had a saved Nova Launcher backup on my Google Drive and I restored that so the vast majority of my UI settings were made for me automatically. This was almost as easy as setting up a new iPhone from an iCloud backup. Impressed.

    The phone itself is gorgeous, I am very pleased with my purchase so far. My wife now wants a OPO, she also will be coming from a custom Moto X.

    Glad to hear of your experience. I was very impressed with the OPO also and am rooting for them to succeed. If this is what they can do with $349 imagine what they can do with the next model with all of the kinks worked out.

    Got mine as well. Love it so far. I do not notice any yellow tinting to the screen, and the build quality of the phone genuinely surprised me. Looking forward to using this for a while to see how I like it.

    I received my phone Monday and love it. The more I use it, the more I like it. I really like the themes and customizations. The battery drains slow and charges fast. I don't have the yellow screen tint issue either.

    I know lots of people like the theming abilities of the OPO, but I have gone out of my way to create a GPE out of my OPO. GEL, Holo theme, and minimal usage of widgets.

    I got my 64 gig One Plus One yesterday! My question is this : when I'm on a phone call the earpiece volume or speakerphone volume are really low. Also the volume for the music isn't too loud when you have headphones on. Is there any way to fix this?

    The next OTA (due to roll out in the next week or two) is said to address all known bugs as listed in Jira - low volume being one of them. Fortunately for me I don't seem to have an issue with this, but if they make my phone louder I won't complain. Congrats on getting your phone Tom.

    I've been using Google Music Manager to import my itunes playlists. Not a perfect solution but it works for what I need it to do.

    I have my phone hooked up as a USB device to my Mac. I can drag over the playlist but I just don't know where on the phone they go. You know what folder they should go into

    That's cool, I like stock Android also. I pretty much like the idea of having a Android L theme because I can't wait for it to be released. I like the GEL but don't like that you can't remove the persistent Google search bar at the top.

    I've been using my OPO for two to three weeks now. The most amazing thing for me is the battery life, considering nexus 4 gives me only 4-5 hours usage battery life. OPO could use up to 8.5 hours. This is crazy. Also, I don't have serious yellow band issue, very little down there but doesn't affect me at all. I could only see it if I'm being too picky. I do have multi touch and screen sensitivity related issues though, as described in the popular BACON-55 bug on CM's JIRA instance.

    I'm wondering if they just type at light speed or if I just type at an abysmally slow rate? How do you rate your typing speed on your phone?

    I do rate my typing speed to be quite fast (because I'm always rushing haha). I'm using Flesky keyboard (I'm so used to the "slide to left to delete word" function). So when i type too fast, the screen cannot recognise it's two independent touch, it thinks I'm swiping to the left, my words often get deleted. Now I have had no choice, but to type slower because I need the word deleting gesture function. No such issue when I was using Nexus 4. The issue should be more obvious if you're using a keyboard that has swipe function.

    They (OPO & CM) claimed to be a software issue, so we are waiting for fix. There's gonna be a workaround in next patch in this month (not today's CM 11.0-XNPH30O update though), but I believe they are expecting Synaptics to fix the issue because they claimed that it's not under their control.

    I can see how that would be bothersome for you Shyuan. I type meticulously using the Google Keyboard so I haven't run into that issue myself. I saw that CM is getting the driver/firmware fix from Synaptics, if the hardware is not flawed that should fix the problem once and for all.

    That's why I rooted the OnePlus One and installed Gravity Box and XGELS. I set the search bar only appears when I pull up Google Now.

    I just got an invite today for the 64gb OpO. I was new to Android 2 years ago and got the Galaxy S3 which I still have. I never got into launchers, rooting or any of the other modifications and have been using TW. If I get the OpO will the transition to Cyanogen Mod be difficult? And what happens if I don't like it? I don't NEED the phone, but at some point the GS3 will become dated though it still works great now. Thanks.

    Using cyanogenmod should be a bit easier than TW. Closer to vanilla Android. Except for customization, that is pretty great on Cyanogen. Another thing is a lot of OEMs add features that you might be used to, but will no longer be there. Worst case is you download a comparable app. Plus is there is no bloat. Enjoy. Just got my invite today and will be trading in my G3 if I like it enough.

    All of this jontalk. I was new to Android January of this year when I got my Moto X. The Moto comes with a flavor of Android that is nearly stock and was so easy to learn to use coming from iOS. Then back in April my wife got her Moto X and she gave me her Samsung Galaxy Relay 4G which I experimented with and installed CM10 (then later 11) on. That was also quite easy to learn. So for me going to the OPO was as natural as breathing air, and I suspect that you'll find the OPO easy to use also. You can tweak to your hearts content or use it just as it is right out of the box. Have fun.
