    This new direction of OnePlus is a very different one. It's more expensive direction but it let's them make unique hardware and I like where they're going with it. Do you?

      I dont participate often but here is my perspective. NA folks are usually tied to ecosystem Apple or Carrier and OP is going to have hard time in playing the game. Also a lot of premium phones in NA are usually leased or carrier free upgrades or more like DPP/trade in credits and OP is just trying to play that game.
      Atleast for me it never makes sense on spending $700 on OP when I can get a new Pixel 3 for 599 or like I got my Pixel 2 for $450 like an year back. People who seek value like me look for avenues are the one who consider OP as well. And getting OP 7 for ~ $650 may not work, as there would be lack of warranty claims and more importantly extended warranty or credit card offers I can double down on.

      Good luck OP!

      I would of been loyal if they kept the low prices and flagship killer. Not expensive flagshit 🗑

      Fortunately in UK we have the option to buy the OP7 besides the OP7Pro 😁. However prices are higher than the OnePlus we used to remember.
      We do have to mention that is is what happened to the Nexus series as well, long time ago.

      You do realize that the OP 7 is still a relatively cheap flagship device, unlike the 7 pro? Bullshit video

    Great content! now with the OP7T, which one would you recommend to the average person - OP7 (the 6T upgrade) or the OP7T? I'm in London so can basically get both. Thanks!

    Europe is quite sick of the Apple products because its really sad changes the last few years, like 2016-2017 was the last good Apple product year after that it just goes down.

    Biggest question: Does that market omission align with some costly requirements, such as the CDMA network type, the carrier customizing of each model, random bans and lawsuits etc.

    They don't have to sell it North America to be successful lol. They are hugely successful already just by selling in India and China, that's where the buyers are. So, no, stop thinking too highly about North America.

    What you said in this video is very true but the amount of money people were used to pay for a good smartphone also changed. A few years back it was completely out of this world that somebody would pay more than 1000€ on a Smartphone and here iPhone XS we are. I remember back then when I bought my first smartphone it was around 2011/12 I paid 250€ for it and my mother did not let me take it to p.e classes because it was considered super expensive. Now I am lucky to get a decent processor in my phone for less than 400€

    Watching this on k20 pro.
    Just 380$
    same spec as oneplus 7
    With no stereo speakers and UFS 3.0
    Seriously k20 pro is more VFM than onleplus 7.
    Same AMOLED display with no notch
    Popup camera although bit slow.
    Camera is way better than oneplus 7
    Battery champion.
    Oneplus only wins in software updates.
    Since I don't rely on xiaomi for software and only use custom ROMs..k20 pro is bang for the buck .
    What's not you get 256gb storage with 8gb ram for under 420$.

    hi Dave , I am from 🇮🇳 and after looking at the current situation of OnePlus policy's laid out it makes me think abit conservatively about it's product. First off the pricing in India is really steep for the OP7pro & at least from the data it shows most consumers are eyeing the OP7 6/128 at close to 32999 INR.(the model not avail in N.A )
    my doubt in this company is still prevelent and I refuse to go with it's policy's. Infact I'am extremely happy with my qHD G6 since oct 2017 till date.
    I see Honor's Latest Kirin 980 plonked into the View20 as a fantastic value proposition
    (INR 26000) under cutting prices of the OP7 and also the newly launched K20 pro version which single handedly dismantle bulk nos that OnePlus was set to achieve by this half yearly sales figures. I need to get your thought's on which is best possible upgrade between the choice of devices that I just mentioned for closer to 550 usd value proposition ❓👀
    warmth n regards

    RIP One Plus. If I wanted to pay for a flagship, I would have purchased a flagship phone. If I am gonna spend $700-750 phone, I can just buy a Samsung or iPhone for 100 -200 dollar more. Or buy them during holiday sales. Btw other flagships has more accessories available, water proof certifications, wireless charging, and more tech supports.

    Regarding prices, while OP 1 was cheaper than 7 Pro, prices overall were a lot cheaper than now. How much was an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S?

  • Nishant Wadhwa

    This is how some of the big companies treated India in the past. They released the product late and at unreasonable prices compared to other markets(Apple, Google). We Indians were initially like WTF but it was a perfect opportunity for OnePlus to grow its share. They too are becoming unreasonably expensive now but Xiaomi are on their tail with Poco F1 and K20.

    Yes, although I have the regular 7 and it's a great phone. It seems like a better buy than the pro. Glad that they're selling it here in Europe. Too bad that's not in North America. :(
    Edit: if I was in the US I'd either import one or just get the pro :(

    I don't get it. How does selling both phones in the US market hurt OnePlus. It just means the TOTAL number of phones sold would be much higher. So that's a bad thing?

  • Athena

    Its a bit off-topic, but I'm gonna say it anyway.
    I _hate_ modern flagship devices. They're too big, too expensive, and too feature-packed for me. I mean, the OnePlus 7 Pro nearly has a *seven inch screen* which is bloody ridiculous for people like me who have small hands. Utter madness.
    I always regarded OnePlus as a flagship killer until recently, when I saw the OP6. They became the flagship. And I hate it.
    I use a BlackBerry Classic (3.5" 720x720 display, with a QWERTY keyboard) which is comparable to the width of an iPhone 6s, my former phone. The absolute limit for me is 5.5 inches, which I can't really hold properly. I'd prefer a phone with the width of a 6s, not something insane like the 7 Pro or the iPhone X series. Hopefully I can stay away from the phablet trend that is becoming the norm now. Sorry, big tech, I'll stick with my BlackBerry.

    OnePlus 7 in India is cheaper than OnePlus 6T (at the time of launch). What more does someone want? There is a reason this brand is doing well in India.

  • mustafa alattar

    But I really dont get why you would recommend the normal One plus 7 over the pro, when even the pro is priced relatively cheap compared to other flagships.

    Hello there,

    I've been using my S7 for almost 2 years now and was thinking of an upgrade.
    But, I can't really make up my mind, if I should go with the Oneplus 7(Regular not Pro) or Galaxy S10.

    What would you recommend?

      Yes there is a OP7 and the best past is here in India the launching price of OP7 is less than OP 6T.
