    It would be an innovation and just think what can be done with promotion videos!

    Interesting that you should use that phrase because it's often misconstrued. “The customer is always right” doesn't mean that the customer can do no wrong or that the business always has to concede to their wishes. The quote originally referred to customers as a collective, as in if you have a product that isn't selling or one that you never have enough of to meet demand then you have to change your strategy as a business owner to match demand. That's how customers are “always right” and dictate businesses, not as individuals but as a group. So if one customer isn't satisfied it's entirely inconsequential as long as demand is still strong from the customer base as a whole. And considering how there are still thousands of people clamoring to buy OnePlus prodcuts, including wireless earphones, then in their minds they're still doing right by their customers.

    You will be right from your point of view but I am right from my point of view, you know if I am not able to buy it today then I will buy it later but still this does not change the fact that they will give the price which they want and I will buy it, their price strategy sucks now as they do not make their prices down like other companies and when they does when their models gets out of stock as new Oneplus arrives, so that is bad from people who pay full taxes and get it on price which is 30 to 40% more from the Original website price, may be you or everyone will like it but I do not.

    But then they would have revealed the device before launch, despite the fact that it's already been "leaked" all over the internet at this point. I'd love to see Pete or Carl perform the rest of the test live at the launch event though. It'd be enough to get me to tune in anyway.:D

    No i meant just at least tell us that the device survived? i mean what’s the point of all this if it didn’t?


    Pete : did you do it?
    Carl : Yes
    Pete : what did it cost?
    Carl : thousands of dollars and...
    Pete : And??
    Carl : And the 7 Pro.
    That’d take too much time though, maybe the audience and staff should help too, i promise to watch the launch event if that happens, thousands of water buckets filled with water and OnePlus 7 Pro :D

    That is the truth, do not go with the flow, face the reality, and write it down sooner or later if same strategy of Oneplus remains then Samsung flagship and Oneplus flagship will cost same as they want to become like one of them.

    whatever - this is not important to me
    other brands who have IP ratings dont cover it under the warranty anyway so its useless

    why they're mentioning only OnePlus 7 pro everywhere?
    OnePlus 7 should be the flagship device not OnePlus 7 pro.
    pro should be with rich features but they're mentioning OnePlus 7 pro everywhere....

    Personally, it seems perfect to me. I do not care that it does not have IP certification and, despite this, I am happy and reassured to know that something can get wet.
