    1) Why did you choose OnePlus over any of the other brand who are also making gaming phones?

    Honestly, I have had my eye on OnePlus since they came out with the original while I was still working as a phone technician for Sprint many years ago. I loved the idea of a company building premium phones at reasonable prices. OnePlus 7T seems to be the best marriage of value and specs you can buy at this point while also looking really nice design-wise as well. I looked at the stuff being built by ASUS and Razer, and although they are monsters when it comes to specs, they focus too much on looking "cool" for me. I need my phone to look like a phone, first and foremost, not a gaming device.

    2) What's your history with OnePlus devices?
    it all started when i had my iPhone 4, i was sick and tired of the battery and i was just like i need an android again.. there were too many options but looking on the internet something got me, it was the OnePlus 1, this brand new company that sold phones so cheap that surprised me , when i found out about the invitation system i was trying so hard to get one it was kind of impossible , so i talk to my friends about it and we all decided to put our hands into it and start looking for those invitations, we found them we all were able to buy one , bought one for my mom,dad and myself. so here you have me 5 years later and many improvements my dad and i own the OnePlus 6 and my mom still OnePlus 3T and they still work awesome ... although that One plus 7 pro is looking at me since it came out D:

    1) Why did you choose OnePlus over any of the other brand who are also making gaming phones?

    LOYALTY!
    Not just from a user towards the brand, but vice versa as well.

    I have been following the journey of OnePlus since the OG OnePlus One. I was in college in India and I remember how difficult it was to get an invite. Fast forward, OnePlus 2 was launched and I bought it in 2015. After happily using it for over 3 years, I got OnePlus 6T via my carrier T-mobile by trading in my OnePlus 2 and getting $300 off. Wow!

    There's simply nothing in any other brand that can convince me to switch from OnePlus.

    1) Why did you choose OnePlus over any of the other brand who are also making gaming phones?
    Originally, I was more into the Samsung phones. I've had a Galaxy S3, S5, and at some point, I had a Google Nexus 5. Looking back, the UI and the bloatware was fine to me; it was just like everyday breathing! However, I never knew what freedom felt like until I've bought myself a OnePlus 5T! Without bloatware and all of that unnecessary junk, without the flagship price, but with the powerful specs, I've definitely found myself a very powerful phone.

    However, when it comes to gaming, I didn't like the specs on it. OnePlus is more well-rounded and is more of a phone than most devices like the Razer Phone and even the newest Asus phone. Although they provide a very good refresh rate and powerful performance, they lack in so many other aspects that OnePlus excels in.


    2) What's your history with OnePlus devices?
    Again, I've bought myself a OnePlus 5T after having downgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S5 to a Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 3, the ones that they give to you at Cricket! At that time, I thought that phone was decent but when the 5T arrived, I finally believed the ad I saw online!


    3) Is there a reason why you prefer gaming on Android over iOS?
    In general, I love the customizability and the performance of Android phones. In addition, I feel that they provide a lot more variety in games and spit out quality games more frequently than on the iOS platform. There is, in a sense, a bit more freedom to 'choose my poison'.

    4) If you had to identify one quality of the OnePlus 7T that makes it a standout choice for mobile gamers, what would it be?
    I would most definitely agree about the Warp Charge 30T. Under the duration of graphic heavy games, the battery life can drain quit fast, causing me to go on a panic sometimes since I would need to headout after a game or two. Having the Warp Charge, I'm able to charge for 10 minutes and hit the road in an instant!

    5) What is one area that you'd like to see OnePlus optimize in their smartphones for even better gaming experiences?
    Although I would love a OnePlus tablet (Which I would probably use everyday for both work and school), but in terms of gaming experience, here are a few things I would consider:
    - Having 4 speakers, one in each corner to give you more of a directional sense
    - Better cooling since some games do take a heavy toll on your phone at times
    - Stronger vibrational motor so you can really feel those vibrations

    Of course, I can go on and on, but here's the thing, I LOVE what OnePlus is already doing! I know that they will keep improving because it's in their nature!

    As they always say #NeverSettle !

    I've never used any OnePlus devices before but from looking at the content creators of brawl stars using the OnePlus 7T it looks very op and I'd like to try one out.

    Actually hadn't heard of the brand until I watched Linus Tech Tips make a video about the OnePlus 6T. I was pretty interested so I bought one. Been in love ever since!

    Question 2: I am actually completely new to the OnePlus community. I originally had everything from Motorola to Samsung, LG and Google Nexus. I chose OnePlus not only because of their price point, but because of their value proposition. They are a company that stands by their product and produces a high quality phone that lasts. I've had this over a year and I still achieve over a day of battery with heavy use. Can you still get that from the other flagships?

    Question 1:
    Why did I choose OnePlus over other gaming phones? Oxygen OS. In gaming one of the most important things is speed. Oxygen OS is so optimized. I've heard about the brand before, but it wasn't until the 5t where it really caught my attention. I am an Android enthusiast, and Oxygen OS is just hands down so enjoyable to use. Other gaming phones have a thick skin or theme, and Oxygen OS is just a clean near stock Android experience. On top of that, the displays and screen to body ratio make playing games much more immersive. My OnePlus has never lagged, it stays fast. The never settle mentality is why OnePlus earned my loyalty and offers hands down an incredibly enjoyable gaming experience.

    OnePlus makes cheaper devices that make it possible for me at a young age to afford they also have many cool innovative Technology in their phones like no other companies like the pop up camera ext.

    Question 1.

    Simple answer, I'm hooked. I bought the The 6, then the 6T. going to upgrade to the pro in a couple of month. Hopefully OnePlus comes up with Tablets, Smart watches and more technology so I can have a connected ecosystem.

    Question 5) I would like to see more cooling in the phones, I know it's limited by space but my 7 Pro seems to get really hot.

    Why did you choose OnePlus over any of the other brand who are also making gaming phones?

    I didn't just choose OnePlus for gaming, I chose it for the quality, speed, and battery life. OnePlus makes the fastest, smoothest phones in my opinion. The battery life on OnePlus devices is insane as well. I will only buy OnePlus devices from now on. It all started out years ago. I wanted the OnePlus 3T when it came out, yet never had the money. I kept wanting each new OnePlus device, yet never had the money. Finally I got a job and bought the OnePlus 6. After that I was hooked, and I could never go back to anything else. I now own the OnePlus 7 Pro and am totally in love. This phone is everything I've ever wanted: big screen, super fast, fast charging, smooth gaming, and battery that lasts a long time!

    "Why did you choose OnePlus over other phone brands that are making gaming phones?"

    Honestly? I really like the idea of community and togetherness. I also love the design aspect of your phones - red and black is my favorite color combination ever. I also liked the insane performance, the outstanding screen-to-body ratio, and the wonderful simplicity and fluidity of OxygenOS - it doesn't just move, it flies like a supersonic jet.

    1) Why did you choose OnePlus over any of the other brand who are also making gaming phones?

    I wanted something that was powerful, but still close to stock Android. I had a Pixel 2 XL and ended up shattering the back glass and camera. It was time for a new phone. I was waiting on the Pixel 4 while using my backup Galaxy S8 but then started doing a lot of research on the OnePlus 7 Pro. I instantly got addicted to reading about all the features and specs. Walked in to a T-Mobile store a few days later and played with it. I instantly fell in love. At that moment, I knew I needed to buy it, and that's exactly what I did. Really looking forward to future OnePlus phones and I will definitely be a OnePlus fan for the rest of my life.
