Let’s say you’re lucky enough to snag an invite to buy a OnePlus 2, and for whatever reason, you miss using that invite to buy a phone within 24 hours. Unfortunately, your invite would now be expired. Or at least it would have been prior to today.
OnePlus has announced on Twitter today that once issued invites will be valid for 3 days now, instead of the previous 24 hours. No other details on the change have been shared at this time, but it all seems pretty straightforward.
While OnePlus has said in the Tweet announcing the change that the invite extension is just one of the ways the company wants to keep improving, using customer feedback to do so, replies are littered with speculation that today’s announcement was prompted by poor sales. With the recent release of the Moto X Pure Edition, Nexus 5X and with phones coming out all the time like the Robin, OnePlus is undoubtedly facing more competition than ever before.
