    I bought the 7t pro just when it was released even if it was super high priced. I paid the full price. Didn't get anything extra or free stuff. Im also part of the red cable club. Didnt get anything there either. Used all OnePlus devices all my life including the OnePlus x. Got no offers till now. Now these late buyers are getting a free wireless bullets for buying late? This is proof enough that OnePlus is forgetting it's loyal fans. Enough is enough. Not buying the next OnePlus device anymore. Not recommending it to anyone. Lesson learnt.

    -from a true loyal OnePlus fan from the beginning.

    Its nothing OnePlus specific, it is pretty normal in global business. Your new product sells at full price (because thats when peak demand is), then as time goes on the price goes down, and there are special offers to maintain demand - in a growing competitive marketplace like India it will always be the way.
    TBH you certainly get more offers in India than anywhere else in the world (Red Cable Club with extra years of warranty and battery replacements etc is India only).

    Comparing OnePlus business model to other companies like Samsung or lg is an insult to it's loyal fans. OnePlus is supposed to be what it stood for. Its not the same anymore. Remember how they criticised apple for the removal of headphone jack? Now they themselves followed apple. Now they're following companies like Samsung and LG. That's not what OnePlus is supposed to be.

    OnePlus is a business like any other, they have fans like there are fans of Samsung/Apple/etc. OnePlus generally considers its user base more than most similar businesses, and they will change their minds as the market changes - like all businesses they are there to make money at the end of the day, and any business that doesn't change as the market changes will die.

    These deceitful practices are what people didn't like. This is one of the strongest reasons OnePlus fans by phones. Now if OnePlus itself start doing such deceitful things, we'll feel cheated. I actually do. After so many OnePlus phones, some random guy buys one phone very late and he gets a better deal? We fans feel cheated. Enough is enough. I'm done.

    why is it deceitful? sales, offers and promotions happen. I get the feeling that you will end up being disappointed a lot in life if you get upset at normal business practise.
