  • I think they were capturing a little more than just the enthusiasts market, I used to recommend 1+ to practically anyone who wanted a great phone for the price. Now they still cut mostly the same corners but with true flagship pricing which really kills the hype.

  • fun fact: the dash charger in the oneplus 7 pro is also used by the realme x3 superzoom and renamed as dart charging.. i also suspect that the oneplus 7t pro and realme x3 sz has the same internal components and specs.. except for the cameras and other stuff

  • I bought into the hype, bought a One Plus One. It was priced aggressively, and I was ready to give Android another chance. It didn’t take long for me to realize I had made a mistake. And then I also found out how quickly Android manufacturers drop support for their products, they want you to buy a new phone. After just a couple years the phone was a paperweight.

  • The title should be "What Happened to Apple and Samsung" People want to rip on OnePlus for increasing their prices over the years. but in a world of $1000 - $1500 flagships. OnePlus still delivers flagship specs that are still affordable at $600 - $800. Yes, everything costs more because the cost of making smartphones has gone up over the years. But OnePlus is still the value king!

  • i went from the oneplus 1 onto the oneplus 3t and i loved the brand and loved the phones, however after i purchased the oneplus 6 a few years ago i felt like i was buying into the brand and less the phone, with the oneplus 6 they cut lots of corners and still charged a flagship price for the phone, i have recently moved to the iphone12 and love it but i miss the feeling of being within the oneplus bubble and loving everything they do, I hope the next phone they come out with is true "flagship killer" without a close to flagship price

  • There is one other option ... Hide yourself deep enough under a parent company so you can focus on enthusiasts only while having the backing for hits and misses. One example is Alienware, owned by Dell but enthusiasts are completely willing to overlook that and keep Alienware strong. OnePlus kind of has this with the McLaren edition that unfortunately ended. A brand new OP7T Pro McLaren Edition still goes for $900 and even used is not much less than 8 Pro. I'm running OP7 Pro until it dies and then I have another new one after that, the thing never breaks and no punch hole. I do like Nord series, whenever my 7 Pros die I may get new Nord each year vs the high end phone. Not risking breaking something expensive and with resale you are getting new phone every year for less than $200.
