    I own both OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 7T. when I bought the OnePlus 5 it was purely for that price point. Same it goes for OnePlus 7T also affordable. In India 5G is a nightmare for now.

    Let down with the way they've approached 2020. I will probably now just pick up the OP7t which in many ways offers way more value for money than the OnePlus 8.

    Like I've said before, value-wise anything in the 7 series still makes it a smarter buy. With the 8 series, they are basically another premium flagship OEM tailored to those willing to spend $1000 on a phone for specs.

    Actually there are some pretty good devices sold under the Nokia name (manufactured by HMD now) and they have a pretty good track record on updates supposedly.

    Bad is an understatement, a 20k bump in the base model price (direct USD to INR conversion), is big enough to sideline the majority of the customers. I guess most users with an OP5 (like me) and OP6 series will prefer an OP7T or will hang on till the launch of 8T.

    I was referring to the time when Nokia were trying to enter the smartphone region, and some companies were mild ahead of them.

    8T might be costlier. Once you go big, you dont go back.

    I meant the extra time might let people fo save up a bit more before splurging. and like 7T, 8T might get a 120hz display for a comparative cheaper price.

    But I dont think they will compromise on brand by releasing a notched phone. If its a Full AMOLEDA screen with thin bezels, 45+ for sure.

    Everyone has to adapt with time. Or they will wash away, like it happened to Nokia.​


    With time comes better hardware too, 30W charging and SONY IMX 586 in OP8 isn't comparable with time

    I think that the OnePlus 8 is like an Upgrade version of the OnePlus 7t pro. Just a little compromises like, full HD display,hole punch cutout and no telephoto lens. The 8 pro is in a whole new level, which is way better. OnePlus has definitely changed their whole strategy and focus more on the Flagship side, other than a Flagship killer like they used to be. They will still listen to their consumers, but just for optimizing and creating a better experience for us. In terms of strategy, they have their own way of it.

    Ah, the rise and fall of companies. So have we already seen the rise of OP and now the fall begins or will it simply "level out"? It's no longer a "bargain" as the phones it competes against are already dropping their prices by the time OnePlus launches it's newest device.

    Time will tell how well it does.

    Exactly! Only time will tell. Redmi K series phone may turn out to be the next Flagship killer, which kills OnePlus. No doubt OnePlus has now become a brand, but it shouldn't have forgotten the idea which it started. *Never Settle* has become invalid.

    OnePlus will just be another memory in a couple of years time. Judging from the comments on live chat and across the web, there's quite a lot of negativity out there from users talking about the prices. OnePlus have moved from being a flagship killer to being the exact opposite. They've joined the big boys now but they've left themselves exposed in the mid-range price market segment for phones. The likes of RealMe, Xiaomi, Samsung and Apple will be only too happy to accommodate disgruntled OP fans. Does the pricing of the 8 series signify the end of OnePlus? I think it does and it's a big gamble on OnePlus' part. Give it a few months and there will be significant price reductions but I fear it will be too late.

    I just wish Redmi would bring their phones to the US. OnePlus WAS the only OEM in that budget flagship territory here. Now it's just Apple lol.
