    Default OnePlus One: Now comes the decision. Keep or sell?

    Okay I've been using the OPO for a week now as my daily driver, and its really nice. It really is. I'm lucky in that mine doesn't have a yellow screen or volume issues. Now I'm faced with a decision.

    Do I keep it or do I sell it?

    Here's my situation...I have an iPhone 5S, an iPad Air, and the OPO. I truly am amazed at what OPO has done with this phone. But I'm a girl, with girl hands, girl pockets, and the OPO is BIG. Like bigger than my M8 was which I could deal with, but just barely. My sweetspot has always been a 4.5-7 inch screen. And I just don't know if I can live day to day with the size of the phone.

    So here are the options I'm mulling over:

    1) Suck it up and try to learn to deal with it, and the fact that I have to leave it on my desk in the back room because it simply doesn't fit in my dress pant pockets. Women's dress pants are stupid.

    2) Sell it. I already know I'm buying the iPhone 6, so I would put the proceeds towards that purchase. I always end up back on iPhone, it seems, but having the iPad makes it even more convenient with the way they talk to each other. I wouldn't make a profit, I'd sell it at cost and eat the duty I paid for bringing it into Canada. I'll end up down about $80 in the end, I figure. I can live with that. Its a week old, its not been abused lol.

    3) Go back to iPhone. Keep the OPO because its unlocked in case I ever go on vacation and need a phone I can use anywhere.

    In the last year I've owned the Galaxy S3, iPhone 5, HTC One M7 and M8, iPhone 5S, BB Z10, BB Q5...it seems I love playing with phones but always end up back with Apple. I suppose it makes sense with the iPad...

    Decisions decisions.

    Sell it.

    They are a scam for the most part and you are one of the lucky ones to to get one. If they keep to the other "deadlines" they have set, who know when it will get an update (either a security patch or "L"). You already know you are getting the 6, so you only have a bit over a month to wait. I dislike Apple but I would take over the 1+ (and you are gonna need the money for the 6)

    I LOVE my OPO - BUT - it is too big even for me to use one handed. I'm definitely keeping it because the pro's outweigh the con's by a mile+. I cannot imagine a woman using this phone, (no offense!), or someone with small hands. I'm 6'2", 200lbs with large hands.

    No offense taken! It's like the day I had to use a note 3 as my manager phone and I couldn't stand it. Just way too big. I dropped that phone because of it being simply too big.

    The OPO is more ergonomic but I can't even slip it in my pocket, and considering where I work I already have to carry two phones with me at all times (current corporate phone is a GS3) so it's irritating. I love the phone but do I love it enough to try to learn to live with the sheer size of it?

    Please explain to me how they are a scam. Next update should be released within two weeks and L who knows they said within three months but this is cm we are talking about they know how to drag their feet.
    To op if the phone is too large sell it early while you can get the full retail and probably more for it especially if your set on getting the iPhone 6.

    Yeah I think that's the way it's gonna go.

    I paid $460 CDN at the end of duties and shipping to Canada, I think if I do sell it would be for $400 including shipping. I don't mind ending up out a bit. I'll still get invites and I'll share them.

    Am I reading what I'm reading???

    My question to you, sir, is what are you doing in a sub-forum for a phone you clearly dislike and have repeatedly called a "SCAM"??? I just got the phone Monday so I know why I'm here.



    Or maybe you like spending your free time crusing forums for phones you don't own, like, or have interest in

    For anyone who even considers listening to this guy discuss this phone, read the comments here

    I promise you this Mr. nonexus, you won't find me cruising the Note 3 forums

    To answer the OP, reading it, I sense you favor iOS, sell your 1+ and put it towards that is my opinion

    I definitely don't say the OPO is a scam. My dealings with them have been stellar.

    I am the helpful type. I saw the question in the unanswered questions area and answered it truthfully. Your lack of comprehension in that thread is amazing and the reason I ended the conversation.

    I visit all the phone forums since I do get to play with them all. It is nice to be helpful and it is also a great place to get some tips that help my job out....

    Well in the midst of this it sold in 2 minutes to a friend of mine after I posted it on my facebook lol.

    Guess the decisions made!

    I definitely disagree that OPO is a scam. I absolutely disagree. They were fantastic and I had the phone within 5 days of ordering and 2 of those days were the weekend.

    Wow that was quick but best of luck. Wish this phone fitted your lifestyle better but that's the thing not every phone is for everyone. Especially a phone as big as this one.

    I'm bummed because it's so, so nice. But it's not much good if I spend half my time trying to find someplace to put it because it won't fit in my pocket.

    Yeah if you want an iPhone, selling it was the right move. No use keeping it if you're not 100% happy with it.

    I can understand that. I couldn't keep the note 2 that phone was just too wide for me. So size makes a big impact on usability. And whether or not you should keep a phone.

    Yeah once I read the issue with the size and your fingers I figured it just wouldn't work out. Seems like iOS is where your heart is. I can dig it

    My wife is the same way, 5 foot even, 120 pounds if she's holding a brick in her hands and she has the lg g2, I showed her the g3 thinking she'd want, she took one look at it for 2 seconds at a Radio Shack and said "nope that's too big"

    (I can make a joke about that last part but I won't lol)

    What's funny is the M8 was borderline for me size wise. I could still use it but it was almost too big...but it fit in my pocket. The differences between the two phones are subtle but the OPO just. Doesn't. Fit.

    It's a brilliant device. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. It's just weird how much I love to flip flop phones but I always seem to end up back on iOS.

    I don't think it's weird. A year ago today I was using a galaxy s2, then the s3 in September, in January the moto g (wanted kit Kat), then in June the lg volt, now this.

    I played with the m8 at T-mobile, had to see what the fuss is about, and that is a nice device. I like the dialer and clean ui. When I got this phone I was worried about pocket compatibility as well.

    It does make my pinkie finger twitch after holding it for a while lol

    I need to show my wife this thread. She wants to take my OPO from me as she LOVES the screen size. I know she'd have a hard time handling it for long periods of time.

    reeneebob, you made the right decision for you. I am not a hater of iOS, it's pretty great to use. I hope the iPhone 6 is everything it needs to be.

    It might also have to do with where they keep the phone. My wife's phone is always in her purse. So for her a large phone isn't an issue.

    It's strange that smartphones are getting bigger these days, but pockets aren't keeping up with the trends. I would think that clothing manufacturers could profit by making a fashion line with extra large pockets just to hold our everyday electronic devices.

    I have a huge coach purse but I spend 11 hours a day at work and so it's in my pocket. If I only had to carry one phone I suppose I'd learn to live with it but I have to carry 2.

    Women's clothes often aren't practical, and they don't have real pockets. I've come to terms with this.
