    I'm done settling for meh cameras, OnePlus. That's top $$$ you guys are asking for! Got better choices than this for flagships. Heck, makes apple's insane price tags look sensible in comparison.

    I was lucky enough to order a pop up box with OP8 Pro 8/128 onyx black using an invitation code.
    I would like to know if I'm eligible for obtaining a wireless charge please (I understood it was for every pre order?).
    Link to refer:https://www.oneplus.com/uk/oneplus-8-pro?from=8pro

    Also, I didn't see any screen protector in the pop up box, are there any included please ?

    Thanks for helping.

    Kind regards.

    The flagship killer philosophy was a ruse.

    OnePlus pulled the oldest business trick in the book. Lower prices> capture market > Increase prices. Very disappointed with the pricing this year.

    "I was wondering when the OnePlus 8 series will be available in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and who the authorised dealer is."
    I want to join the OnePlus bandwagon. Souq.com is a website that sells OnePlus phones here in Saudi Arabia but at a very high price. Can I suggest that OnePlus come up with a decent and honest authorised dealer who will sell your products and offer after-sales service to those who want your products?

    Thanks so much and best regards!

    A phone with 8 pro specs should cost in 2020 no more than 500.

    OP is year by year increasing rates drastically.
    Why OP not releasing phones under 20000/- INR, a mid range budget phones.

    I am expecting a mid range OP 8 this time but no news.

    Due to Covid problem, many will restrict spending huge amount.

    For me the camera is not the main selling point. I have my DSLR when I want seriously good photos. And for social networks this one should be more than fine. But look, it´s just me. I really don´t mean to disrespect anyone, I was just saying I get why they did what they did. It´s just about what you look for in your phone. There always will be people who will be happy with the offering and those who won´t. For me the main selling points were: snapdragon (and not exynos anymore), 5G, IP rating, wireless charging, 120 Hz display that works at QHD resolution. And that I got. If Samsung had brought snapdragon to Europe, I would already have the s20+ or ultra, but Exynos was the dealbreaker for me so I had to look elsewhere. But now I´m getting off topic so I should stop LOL.

    Questions for @OverDrive H. Camera Product Manager :

    - How does Color filter camera work on OP8 pro?

    - Why did you chose to replace on the OnePlus 8 the telephoto camera by a dedicated 2Mpx macro camera ? I mean there's already an ultra wide camera for this on the 8. More the 8Pro can take macro shots at 3cm with the 48Mpx Ultra Wide Camera and on the 8 with the 2Mpx macro camera it's at 4cm! I think a x2 or x3 telephoto camera would be more usefull like on the 7T.

    What are some of the best uses of the Color filter Camera. I've seen in reviews that It's low res and proper work was not done on it. Can you shed some light on this regard @OverDrive.H
