    Dear one plus team,
    one plus tag line is flagship killer phone but now one plus is too costlier for geek people's and students those who buy the one plus brand phone previously. Now the one plus 5 is a flagship phone and costlier than the some other brand flagship phones. taking brand ambassador like amitabh bachhan etc. giving money them promotion phone like oppo and vivo, don't think so it's waste of money? one plus have a image of a very good phone In whole world don't spoil that image to high the price of one plus 5 or your next devices. Hope the message is clear. or will some other brand kill the one plus flagship in future.

    People always want more in a product. Sadly many do not understand that software and hardware development requires a lot of monetary capital. I bought the OnePlus 5 8gb/128gb model and it costs about 559 Euros. Last year the OnePlus 3T with 6Gb/128Gb costs about 479 Euros. For the extra costs I have 2gb more RAM, faster processor, dual camera and a better looking screen. I think that is fair and reasonable.

    Agree, only not about the better screen as it is exactly the same as the one in the OP 3T

    Not any more, you are under the impression that One Plus makes cheap phones and will always do so. This has never been the intention and it was announced here on the forum a long time ago.
    You could however argue that One Plus has become a elitist company with lack of cheap and mid-range models for those who would like to believe the hype but can't afford to step onto the train now.

    In my understanding oneplus is striving for a apple like concept... So I guess the price will increase constantly until it is premium segment.

    Hey, only thing you have to think about is how much memory are you going to need, 64gb or 128gb, in terms of ram 6gb is more than enough even for an heavy user. My personal advice is if you don't need the extra memory than go with the 6gb 64gb

    Oneplus can't just inflate the price, they have to justify, they are not going to be able to compete with Apple just because they increase the price of their products, if they keep on making small changes and higher prices they are going to lose their enthusiast buyers

    Marketing costs much that's why price goes up. They want to compete with big brands and you can't do so if you are a cheapo china phone...
    What does not cost much is not much worth in people's view...

    I am sure one plus knows their market and customers well. The incremental price is justifies because of an additional 20mp camera and the latest processor SD835

    You need to work harder on your trolling skills, they're subpar at best.
