    For me, the battery advantage itself is enough reason for bigger price.

    Rooting is supported by the company! The only company that does this.
    Not the mention CM and the fact that One is having huge community support for different ROMs.
    So it will always just the mater of preference which ROM to roll. :)

    Snapdragon 990
    Andreno 660
    Ram 6GB
    1TB of internal storage
    5000 mAh battery
    And you get to chose Oxygen 3.1 or CM 13s based on Android 7.1.

    Yes, but that has purely only been in India, which, which OPO has a large presence in as well. I haven't seen any articles of ASUS selling out their phones like hotcakes anywhere else in the world where OPO's presence is larger (Asia, North America, etc.)

    Also, this doesn't guarantee that ASUS has enough power via market share (even in India) that it is able to steal customers away from OPO or serve as a credible threat, so it's still not worth changing their whole business model to address yet. Both phones also target slightly different audiences; price point is not the only competitive advantage that the OPO has over ASUS's phones.

    lol why would oneplus need to drop the price... since when has anyone been in the situation of debating between the oneplus and the pad phone??
    also "competition" erm.. the mobile market is the most dilute market in the world with competition from every man and his dog.. the oneplus is still a bargain of a phone.. if the difference between you having and not having a oneplus is $48.. i really suggest you evaluate your need for a smart phone...

    But Asus is a a large well known company, OnePlus is not so that plays a factor in the selling price.

    Times change.... They made little profit when the device was new. The specs of the phone are older so the price goes down too. Price drop is possible, certainly with the OP2 coming.

    I still think that it isn't likely as they will just stop making them and sell the rest before releasing the OP2

    Wait, wait, and still more wait type advice.

    With one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel;
    "wait" is not a good option.

    All this talk about battery size.

    Why all the big raving about the OPO battery pack?
    Get a battery pack for the Asus Phone, too.

    Here's a question to ponder.

    Does the Asus phone allow two people
    to have a simple phone conversation,
    with people able to hear each other?


    Because not all OPO phones
    are able to do this simple task.

    How do I know this fact?

    Take a wild guess!

    Hint: My OPO does not.

    Ok you really need to stop posting non sense on this forum. First of all we all know screen size less than 0.5inchs is not really important but rather the total package of the phone such as the resolution of the display, display tech (amoled vs lcd), the Soc (snapdragon s4? Snapdragon 400? Etc), OS ( not just android vs iOS but which version as well) etc are what matters.

    The Asus phone is cheaper because it's actually not as good like what others have said so no pressure on OnePlus here. You really don't have to keep saying OnePlus needs to drop the price etc when the Asus one is not even going to make a difference in sale for them (you want CM built in and arguably better looking and built phone you get OPO)

    OP competes with no one. Besides, I don't want to own anything called a PadFone.

    If OnePlus Two will be high than $300 i will not buy it. There is no sense to pay more. After each 6 month the tech. of phone becomes old.

    And oneplus won't miss you :)
    If the price difference was pretty big what you are saying makes a little more sense but 50 dollar difference for a much bigger battery (much better battery life) count me in :)
