    First, Nigel and I want to say sorry for the delay of the interview. Sometimes Nigel had to communicate with the headquarters somewhere else for some more depth-in answers.


    Since a while, I'm in close contact with @Nigel Rijkhoek. We 'met' each other at the Dutch technology-website Tweakers.net, where I maintain a lot of OnePlus-related topics.

    Because I won a 5T bundle some months ago, and I accidentally ordered the wrong pair of Bullets, OnePlus offered me to exchange the wrong ones with the good ones, hence why I decided to meet-up with Nigel in Amsterdam. We spent some time on the terrace, talking. Oh by the way, fun fact: OnePlus doesn't have an HQ in Amsterdam really. It's just an office where they work with 2 people only. Probably because The Netherlands is still a bit too small compared to the UK (where they do have an HQ) and China.

    In the meantime, I was thinking about doing an interview, in favour of the community. I asked people on Tweakers and the OnePlus Discord to think of questions so I could note them and ask them to Nigel.

    It became extra exciting, cause at that time, @Maximus Decimus Meridius was already on the terrace, chilling with Nigel :cool:. We drank a beer and talked. Unfortunately, Nigel didn't really have a lot of time so I had to send him the document with questions. Nigel and I are looking for opportunities to organise some meet-ups in The Netherlands.

    Nigel was also kind to give me a pack of notes, as a small present :) :

    Then finally, here are the questions and answers! :D You can also watch the document here if that's more convenient for you: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bprZmX0jM9rPpxj27JYyYZOuGE8Mk1k-PnVRAD-VHBw/edit?usp=sharing


    Sorry about the delay. There were some very pretty though questions and please accept our apologies about the timing. With the launch of the 6T and the McLaren Edition we are experiencing some busy times. We hope you are happy with the results and we’d like to thank you for your support.

    Here the interview:

    Thanks for the compliments! :D

    @luxuskamel Yeah, though for some questions they have to contact their colleagues, cause I think only Pete and Carl have an answer on every question.

    Jup.

    Still I don't get why they don't put:
    usb3
    mhl/equivalent


    That technology exists and there's nothing bad about it... :(
    Never settle.

    I don't want to be pickery but I think that can be improved :)

    Same. Plus, it's up to us, consumers what we find the best, not what they find the best. It's a pain in the arse to transfer files with 10MB per second.
