OnePlus 2 not going to be a 'Budget' smartphone?

    If it's above 400 dollars they'll never meet their sales goal of 2-3 million phones sold.

    You are such a hater dude. Every comments from you is negative. Maybe it is a way for you to make a living here, but you deserve no respect at all. You don't belong here dude, go to gym instead.

    Hope you have a retarded son in the future, just like you.

    Premium smartphone, budget smartphone. These categories mean nothing to us.

    We get an idea for a product, make it the best we can, and then add a sliver of margin. It's that simple. What I wrote more than a year ago still holds true: How will OnePlus make money?

    Regarding OnePlus 2. Look at what we've included, and there's much more cool stuff you don't know about yet. It's obviously impossible for us to match OnePlus One pricing with this. Does this mean we're going to milk our fans for more profit? Take a guess. Even suggesting so is insulting to us.

    Very glad to hear this. The industry is full of greedy manufacturers, who treat their customers as a cash cow. I think oneplus will change the industry with this approach. If oneplus plays the same game as the other manufacturers how could it succeed against the huge budgets and capacities of others.

    i think the snapdragon processor will pretty much prevent it from being a flagship killer. it can still be a very nice device though.

    May amazingly still be a bit cheaper than the current flagships.

    This is exactly what brought me here and a message I can agree with.

    What I don't understand is why @Carl reads these threads at all.
    %95 of them flame Oneplus.
    This forum is only hurting Oneplus.
    It's definitely not a positive look for potential buyers.
    You would really have to search hard to find a good redeeming thread for Oneplus.
    Now , a year ago, yes many positive members with positive feelings about Oneplus.
    All before the real facts about Oneplus and how they treat their customers has come out.
    Oh, for the good old days.

    No need to be mad about those haters' comments. They are probably being paid by competitors to do some damage right here. If I do dislike a certain product that much, I wouldn't have wasted my time to attack every single positive comment in the forum and read every news about it.

    Look at him, godlycadaver, how many comments he makes? Jesus

    Anyways, don't lose your cool. If you do, it means they are winning.

    Premium smartphones are costing around $650 USD so if it comes to around $500 I'd still be happy. (Hopefully) High-end specs for $150 cheaper than something else that will have a ton of bloatware and shenanigans. But of course I'm hoping for $300 to $400. ;);)

    I believe in OnePlus team. They will surely make the product viable at a cost where it will still be affordable.

    i guess 400-450 Euros for the 64 GB Version which is nice, depending on the rumours which spread lately :) I will buy one no matter what..

    The premium OPT will probably be around $450 with the lower OPT model (without fingerprint, smaller screen size) be around $350

    Does the 2 come with better customer support? Maybe with increased pricing/profits you can hire some NASA chimps instead of rejects from the local zoo.
