OnePlus 2 drops the invite system starting tomorrow

OnePlus 2 drops the invite system starting December 5
OnePlus 2, now invite free
OnePlus is ditching the invite system for its latest flagship handset, but not only for the holiday season.

When compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus 2 does not offer so much in terms of specs and features for so little money, but can still be considered "the flagship killer" OnePlus claims it to be. Its pricing currently starts at $329 USD (16 GB version), but even the more expensive 64 GB version remains a bargain, carrying a price tag below $400 USD - $389 USD, to be more precise. Until now, the most notorious downside of the OnePlus 2 was its availability via an invite system. Fortunately, it ends tomorrow.

According to a post on the official OnePlus forums, "The invite system has been crucial to letting us scale our operations and has given our fans a unique way to share OnePlus with the people in their lives. But we are always trying to enhance the OnePlus experience for you and taking risks to push ourselves and show real improvements. That's why we're making the OnePlus 2 invite-free … forever!"

These being said, it is good to know that the surprises do not stop here. Starting this weekend, OnePlus offers 50% off for the StyleSwap covers, 90% off for select accessories and 10% off for other accessories, as well as an exclusive Never Settle mousepad for "a limited number of first orders." On December 17, the company celebrates its second anniversary.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
