    haha,
    the fanboys disagree.
    also everyone seems to have forgotten about the camera open ears forum and what happened there and.no one talks about it anymore.
    it's a hush hush affair.
    it's sureshot marketing, very much visible.
    they do have the money to arrange such meets.
    when I see such posts I just see a handful of fanboys and a few mods commenting positive things on such events.not more than a hundred.
    and these are the people who don't generate revenue for the company,neither they buy the latest products.
    so who are the fans they keep referring to and thanking in every post.
    these are mostly the new buyers like me and you.
    Because we are the people who generate revenue for OnePlus.its not the fan boys or the mods.
    Most of them are still stuck on to their age old OnePlus devices.
    And the irony is that these handful of people treat the revenue generating people like shit.They act as if they own this forum.

    I can't believe they haven't done anything yet,

    As always all energy diverted to the release of the OP6 so any OP5/5T get ready to be treated like crap from now on lol.

    It does appear to have been a PR community stunt but ever hopeful something good would come out of it but sadly as time goes on.........

    my next phone may not be a oneplus phone so much choice out there now

    2018 is the year of iPhone clones.cant purchase a single phone this year.
    hope iPhone ditches the notch this year, and if they do the Android ones are screwed badly.

    It won't happen. India sales fund the European events, I think. OP want to be seen as a "global" brand and so you'll see more of these "events" in western countries.

    are you saying an event like that in India would taken away the image of being a "global" brand? how?

    the Indian economy provides one of the best opportunities to companies to make money. companies can't afford to ignore this market.

    Oh no, that's not what I meant. OnePlus have already "won" in India. I think they are the most trusted brand and probably most of their device sales are in India. They even have a manufacturing (assembly?) plant there.

    Basically, all I'm saying is that OnePlus doesn't have to"impress" India which is why such events probably won't happen there.

    they have a lot of ground to cover in India. most people here haven't even heard of this company. they must do more to impress the Indian market to be successful in the long term. that said, events like this bring together people who already know the company and use its products. an opportunity for everyone to share views in person and to feel part of the company's growth story.

    currently, they don't have any assembling unit here.

    OnePlus phones aren't imported to India from what I glean

    https://www.indiatoday.in/technolog...lus-users-satisfied-report-1044296-2017-09-14

    My bad, it says most "trusted" brand

    my mistake. I should have used 'manufacturing' instead of assembling. that said, this is still news to me. I didn't know that they are assembling the units in India.

    as with brand popularity, it is a very small section of users having budget to afford OnePlus devices know the brand, and those who use it are generally very happy. unlike an iPhone, which almost everyone knows but only a very few buy it, OnePlus isn't a "well known" brand among the general population.

    the most trusted brand is either Samsung or apple.
    and that is on a global basis.

    but then why don't they say something here.
    do they sign some no disclosure agreement nor something.
    even the people who attended camera meet are all hush hush.
    though are very vocal about other stuff here in the forum.
