    I can't not be hyped about OnePlus. I was a Sony fanboy for longest time. I had a laptop, phone, home and portable console. Sony started giving worst and worst products. Overpriced and under-delivered. I didn't have a phone to go to. Other phone companies were not doing what I wanted, but OnePlus released the 6T in NA. I was hyped. I got one day 1. then to not be outdone OnePlus released the 7 pro. I was over the moon. I understand that t to main number are greater jumps but looking at the 7 to 7T confirmed features I'm not so convinced. Hyped because at the end of the day, I'll still have a OnePlus in my pocket.

    I'm very much hyped this time for 7t pricing because Asus have released ROG 2 with 120HZ refresh rate and many exciting features at just Rs.37999. I'm oneplus fanboy from past one year, in just one year I'd 6t, 7(sold last week and waiting for 7t) and my bro has 7 pro but this time Asus has set the fire in the market. If the pricing is less than 35000 means I'll be with oneplus otherwise I'll try ROG 2

    I’m looking forward to the 7T, and it’s price point. It would be nice to see something for less than the 7 Pro!!

    Sure thing, only problem with ROG2 could be it's software & availability of service centers + accessories.

    Don’t forget software update schedule. I’m not sure how good they are but definitely not as good as OnePlus.

    Plus they need to really raise their marketing bar if they want to seriously hold a foot in India its not easy.

    For every product release from OnePlus I see a difference in their products for their community in terms of better design and performance. My first phone from OnePlus is OP2 and later I bought OP6 last year. I am hyped up for every product release from OnePlus and the same for OP7T.

    Does OnePlus do a lot of marketing in India? They don’t do much of it in America or Canada from what I have seen.

    I guess that we are looking to it from an European perspective, and from there, yeah. It seems an odd move to risk first on a TV product when the market is kind saturated and dominated mostly by Samsung and LG and people aren't buying that much new tv's since the old ones still served them well.

    But if you look to it from the Indian TV market perspective it seems a safe bet. In the latest years, OnePlus has conquered the premium market there and currently it seems to exist a great demand for new and more advanced tv's. So it just seems that OnePlus saw an opportunity and decided to risk it. 

    For some reason they seem to be focusing first just on the Indian market. And just by checking the feedback in most of the TV threads around here one sees that the Indian expectation for the product is really high.

    Yes since last couple of years, the OnePlus marketing spend has increased manifolds, and its helping them.

    I'm unsure what we are suppose to write about? My days or the launch of the new phone? What I don't really like is the fact that I bought a oneplus 7 pro on end of june, couldn't participate in the monthly "payback" because I was away for about 1 month (didn't use internet for a whole month!) and about 2 months later, another pro version of the phone is release which support 5g.

    It's software is almost similar to Oxygen OS and definitely better than the Indian Oxygen OS, Asus have more service center than OnePlus for sure in India, and which accessories you taking about :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Btw we can discuss somewhere else if it going off topic here ;)
