    I know some are waiting for a new revision because of the green tint on some current displays. Will this be fixed in the coming models?

    yeah but it’s 900€ and we are just getting out of Covid lockdown situation with job losses. It’s a big hit to our wallet and yet here you are selling phones for 900€. Even Apple are selling their new phone at less than 500€ with their super efficient A13 chip ! You have become the greedy company !

    I think the biggest issue right now isn't green tint anymore, but more the brightness issue that is shown between 10%~25% with greys. There is many videos on many forums, example:



    Grey lines are visible, then less visible, then visible, and then not visible, while increasing brightness. This happens with every single unit I have tested.... It's very noticiable with apps like Discord when not logged in.

    What does this exactly mean for people like me who pre ordered the phone on a German online shop a month ago and still hasn't received the phone?
    Do I still have to hope that they get a batch in a few days or should I buy it directly from oneplus' website?

    Does it mean that sales are down down down and all this marketing mungle jungle is set to revive the weak interest for the 1 THOUSAND EUR/$ phone?
    Seems like the good old invite system...that was a good marketing for greeding the early customers.

    But now you have a 1k EUR/$ brick which is not sex appealing at all....

    Green tint and black crush issues were amended with the latest OTA.

    Let me check with the German team (they should also be receiving stock soon), which parter was it, EinsAMobile?

    I understand that not everyone is in the market for a 1000€ device, and that's perfectly fine. We are fortunate, as explained in the initial message to have precissely the opposite issue, we don't have enough stock to keep up with the demand. This -the same way that the invite system wasn't either- is not a marketing gimmick.

    Thanks for the clarification @David S. regarding the next Onyx Black OnePlus 8 Pro shipments.

    It was other UK and Irish forum members I saw who were annoyed about no Ultramarine Blue OnePlus 8 Pro. I personally think it would have sold better here than the Glacial Green.

    @David S. Thanks for your answer, but I'm not talking about the tinting issues, look at my previous post:

    ^^^ oh the small print ;)

    plus called it with the Ultramine Blue Limited Edition drop, just a matter of time. Good news with regards though on helping with the stock situation given these trying times.
