Default OPO general opinion after almost one month of use

Hi all,

I just want to share my opinions over our beloved (or better, your beloved) flagship 2014 killer device.

I had been lucky enough to buy the phone out of an invite, so i should really don't blame about this absurd invite-only policy. Anyways, they're just making the hype grow until the components are not high-end spec anymore, so when everyone will have the possibility to buy the device there will be Snapdragon 805 terminals out and the older 801 will be way cheaper for the company.

What i dont like: this thing is big, way too big. I have medium sized hands and this thing is so uncomfortable. I knew about it just out of the box, so if you don't have massive hands you will probably think the same.

Moreover, I have unlocked and rooted my device to be able to use root apps. So far no problem for me, and I thank God about it. Customer support is just a joke, they have said that the phone will not lose warranty if we tweak it and then they do not offer support to people causing havoc to their device. They should have just stated that rooted devices will get out of warranty so to make customers more savvy about causing damage.

Three, camera is non that good as they stated at the start. It does photos full of noise and most of the time white balance is way off.

To add: touchscreen is not working properly. When I tyoe fast ghost touches slow me down a lot. Faults like these are not acceptable. Every good company should delay the launch of their device in front of this kind of issues, and they didn't do it.

I think that's all. At the end of all these evaluations: I wish i had bought a Nexus 5 instead of this.

I will keep it until next Nexus will be out, can't wait to get rid of this thing.

Just my 0.02

That may be your experience, but I have had zero issues with camera noise, and definitely no ghost issues. You should get an RMA and request a replacement device. I've had about 35-50 Android devices since 2009, and this is one of my absolute favorites of all time. I agree that production issues may abound, but that's what happens when you get in on the bleeding edge, and with a brand new company(And for every post like yours, I see many more positives). However, just because you will not lose warranty for rooting doesn't mean it is THEIR responsibility to fix your rooting issues. That's what this community(and their forum) is for.

Just sharing my experience. My feeling is that the quality is sub-par compared to other phones like the m8 or the Xperia z2.

Anyways, if you don't encounter ghost touch issue is just because you haven't used a swype keyboard or you don't write so many text messages.

The issue IS there, IS software related (poossibly due to touchscreen drivers), it has been added to CM JIRA, it HAS BEEN recognized by Cyanogenmod developers and they haven't still found a fix.

I have had a SGS4 and besides its sh***y design, It didn't have any of these issues.

They have identified the touchscreen issue and said a fix would be out in a month, they need an updated driver from Synaptics. I don't have a source to the post to hand though
