Radeon962, Sep 14, 2018 : You do realize that OnePlus has never listened to "the Community" from the start? The business model is to take What Oppo designs and upgrade the internals, put OOS on it and slap the OnePlus logo on it and market the crap out of it. All the way back with the OnePlus One, Carl Pei was looking for a way to "monetize the user" (that's where you come in as a member of the forums and OnePlus owner. From a 2014 interview with Carl Pei: Pei explained that the goal is to eventually create a loyal fanbase of users who then spend money with OnePlus in other places after buying a phone. “Later on we can convert these users and monetize them through software and services,” Pei told The Wall Street Journal. “The way we see things is that hardware is increasingly becoming the distribution vehicle for software.” Pei didn’t explain what OnePlus will sell, through presumably it could be some sort of software – perhaps subscription services. https://www.technobuffalo.com/2014/12/14/heres-how-oneplus-plans-to-make-money-from-you/ OnePlus has followed the Apple model but not on the same scale and most likely will never get there. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.fo...08/how-apple-inc-makes-most-of-its-money.aspx It's a launchpad for Apple Services That brand loyalty makes the iPhone an ideal launch pad for Apple's growing Services business, which includes the App Store, iTunes, iBooks, AppleCare, Apple Pay, and Apple Music.

Whether through accessories, software or something else the machine is looking for ways to cash in on your loyalty. You need to speak with your wallet and buy something else for OnePlus to truly listen as its a bottom line business driven by BBK Electronics and not you or any other user in these forums (short of Carl Pei or Pete Lau making a brief appearance and then vanishing for months).
