    Glad there is a community to discuss this. I just bought the oneplus 7pro at a great price for such a good phone. After, I thought does OnePlus have an ethical business model for sourcing materials and manufacturing? Does anyone know?

    What do you mean by "ethics" and "ethical business model"?

    The prevailing business's model of Worldwide Capitalism is

    the production of wealth(goods and services).I.e. commodities, for sale with a view to making a profit out of the work of employees, who are wage slaves - who then have to buy the commodities.

    Is that model ethical? That depends on whether you are the business owners or their employees or, more generally, whether you are a capitalist or wage slave.

    The "ethical" business model I would like is the democratic production of wealth solely for use.

    So does Oneplus have an ethical business policy - NO!!!!!!!!

    You are welcome to the One Plus user forum

    I just want to add to the previous answer, it is not ethical to use the Introduce Yourself forum to do surveys

    OnePlus has a dedicated photography section
    You have some guide thread
    Use the search engine before opening a new thread

    An ethical business model would be to sell devices with zero profit... But why would any company do that?

    From the view of a greedy customer maybe... :D

    From the employee view it would mean good work conditions and reasonable payment...
    Maybe holiday gratification, company pension, etc...

    That's another way of seeing it, this makes a lot of sense... It's like "fair trade" chocolate, that guarantee the customer that workers work in good conditions collecting the cocoa beans

    OnePlus could start making efforts to be more ethical. Things like being transparent about employee conditions or powering their manufacturing with renewable energy would be a great start.
