Twitter its a thing in 2014. While OnePlus continues to try and censor its forum members, they have started to take to twitter and have posted screen shots of PayPal disputes and defective phones.

OnePlus has been answering to other press outlets lately claiming they would never charge for a warranty return, Yet images on twitter today of emails from OnePlus doing exactly that have surfaced.
Also on twitter are more screenshots of PayPal disputes as people are realizing they are not getting help from support and want their money back.

Here are some images from the past day.

Could this be the end of OnePlus

Reports are coming in of Hundreds of people filling PayPal disputes against oneplus for the yellow band issue.
And in one case we received a conversation with a customer and PayPal in which PayPal assures the customer they will get a refund because quote “We have placed a hold against these funds”

If PayPal has frozen the funds from OnePlus it could be the end of that company. Its one thing to lose money in a recall etc for bad devices and a whole other issues to have your merchant freeze funds.

We will keep updating this story as more info comes in, But right now its really not looking good for OnePlus.

Have you filed a PayPal dispute? Let us know in the comments below and whether you got your money back.

Moto Leak Hands on massive camera and more.

Pics and short videos on our tktechnews instagram

 

In this video we got some short hands on time with a moto device code named ORION, It is a base device that all this years Moto Devices will be built on, The Moto x+1, The Droid, and Droid Maxx, Thats right the regular droid is dropping the Ultra Name.
Here is what we know so far.
All will come with these ridiculous cameras on the back, All come with the Snap Dragon 800 SOC, All have 5.0 or 5.1 inch displays AMOLED, all keep active notifications, voice controls etc.
Things that have been added at least on the x+1 will be a LENOVO Theme Store, May be called Moto Theme Store, Which allows you to customize the device, Similar to what you would see in CM Roms, They also will all have customize able on screen keys.
Another new feature is “HIDE KEYS” Motorola is solving the on screen keys burn in problem by allowing the on screen keys to disappear when not in use, This is nothing new as you can find this in any custom rom, But for an OEM to bring this is Huge.

We made a good contact and look forward to our hands on time that we will be able to go much more in depth with monday or tuesday with a 4 inch model.
Also one last piece of news, Verizon is stated to get All three DROID Models and the Moto X First before anyone else.
There is talk says our source that the Droid Models could be seen on other carriers as other named motorola devices this year.

 

New Motorola Device to come with theme store & customizable softkeys

 

Update***** Take down order has just been issued for the phone. All that’s left is on instagram. This was too close for Moto and I can say ive NEVER seen a company move this fast to remove a video. Pics and short clips on our instagram. Will keep everyone posted as to whether we will be able re upload.*****

The upcoming moto device we leaked last week will come with a “Lenovo Theme Store” And customizable softkeys as we were able to see in our short hands on time.
The theme store was not functional but strangely you could pull themes from Nova launcher “in some cases” and they would install.
Another new feature in the moto software is customizable softkeys.
This device which we are told is called “Orion will not go into production” It is merely a base test model on which both the new droid and droid maxx (no more ultra name will be built on, All three devices will share the same camera, screen, processor etc, With only battery size separating them and design in the moto x+1.

We also learn the droid and droid maxx make a return to kevlar in their material and our source claims that while NONE of these devices will have a flash, They will have a unique sensor that will allow it to take the best low light photos on any phone. The sensor looks almost like a smaller lens that is black similar to the G3 laser sensor.

Stay tuned as we will be getting hands on time with the 4 inch droid mini this week.
