    For me, the 2000s was the best time ever😀. Changing trends, changing ways of doing everything quicker and for the technology, it was the best period for consumer products.😉

    I was born in the early 2000s and just like most members in this community, I witnessed the changing world of tech around us - from CRTs to LCDs to LED TVs, from Key Pad phones to Touchscreen phones (fingerprint sensor was a big deal in the early 2010s, then they became the new normal) , from big ol' Desktops to small and compact Laptops, from Ethernet to cellular & WiFi, from Pogo and Cartoon Network to Netflix, Prime and YouTube.😎

    My description of this tech revolution may be a little different from the other members of the community from EU or US because the tech revolution was a little delayed in India at that time (not much, but still observable).🙄
    If we think of phones at that time, Nokia and Samsung were the leaders 😮! Then came Apple and Blackberry and the industry started to bloom.

    So, coming to the question now -

    How OnePlus phones would've been if they were launched in the 2000s?

    According to me, it would've been definitely a Keypad phone, but with a sleek and premium feel. The buttons would've been of hard plastic with a little sandstone like finish. The back plate with Kevlar like finish. The display with a plastic covering slightly curved on the edge....so basically a Sleek, Smart and Stylish phone (specs were not noticed much back then).😉

    So what do you think?
    In what ways would they be different from the ones that existed back then?😄

    Looking forward to see some great and creative replies!

    Thanks for reading!😁

    Hello there Mate,
    Just like always this is Astoundingly Great thread.

    When the Brand started in 2013, The world didn't need another smartphone brand .But they've seen a way things can be done better and More cooler. It was a their Dream at that time Build together with Users and Give them the best they would need at a reasonable price.

    So if Oneplus was somehow started in the early 2000s it would be have been at somewhere Around and beyond the Apples and Samsungs of the world. Just imagine 7 years of their Never Settling got them here at the Top tier in the Tech World. What if their Mantra was started more than a decade ago. The Outcomes would have been Extravagant and So great.

    I would think the early 2000 phones were all about the Features like making mobile more portable and More Efficient. So Oneplus would have adopted to those current Thoughts and just like now they would have experiment the features no other OEM mobiles would have done.


    Wait wait, if Oneplus was founded in early 2000s Carl would be still a teenager. 🧐

    That was it, Great work My friend.
