Well, you are kind of right. One factor you didn't mention is that Chinese smartphones are just way cheaper than LG, Samsung, Apple and all the other international brand in the market. Oneplus rely its supply chain on OPPO. So oneplus product shares like 50-60% of similarity of OPPO product, in another word, if OPPO comes to US and EU market, they can beat LG HTC easily, or the entire middle range smartphone. The problem is OPPO, VIVO are mainly focus on Chinese market, Xiaomi can't come to the US too because there are forces block it. For Huawei, their phone is actually pricey compare to OPPO, VIVO, XIAOMI, Oneplus devices. Also, there is forces block Huawei as well. Oneplus is just small enough to enter. I really wish I could buy the smartphone from China because they are in great value. Mi mix2s, 6+64 with snapdragon 845 costs only 550$, there is no such great value phone in this range, s9 is 720, iPhone 8 is 800, LG, HTC.... all of these companies can't offer snapdragon 845 in this price.
You forgot the main reason
That people want cheap phones with best specs
Very sure high end companies can't afford the same bcoz unlike One plus they have to spend a lot on research and development
One plus has yet to show atleast one new change, invention or innovation in technology
All it does is copy high end phones and make some small tweaks and sell it in market at 200-300 dollars lower price
After all the rant, I would still buy a OnePlus phone if they introduce wireless charging, a good looks, and most importantly, a good customer service
I do not care for the CEO of one plus he is a used car salesman and he blacklisting the you tube reviewers that has been criticizing the way they are handling there customer service because it sucks as for a company oneplus sucks too I do not care for the CEO of one plus he is full of b.s.
Watching this video on my three year old OnePlus One, for 280£ it was amazing value for money in 2015 and now, especially comparing prices and competition in every price bracket...
In 2018 the difference in price is a lot smaller, which makes "Never Settle" more of a settling trend...
I love my OnePlus, reliable with awesome camera(for photos mostly), good screen and still good battery life...
oneplus collects telemetry data like the phone number, wlan name and mac address. To improve the services and products. oh yes. the phone number is important to do this. ;) also the name / id of started apps. ... of course, other companies also collects these data. more or less. but guys, the phone number and wifi to geolocate the user etc. is this important for better products?
Oneplus 2 was tough for the company, maybe because of horrible Snapdragon 810, and the price increased by 30$. Oneplus two really wasn't what customers really wanted, or it was not able to withstand the hype the oneplus one produced around it. Also the fact the big company like samsung moved towards a really well build and great looking smartphone (s6 and s6edge) from plastic s5, and Xiaomi providing with equal specs and cheaper cost in same markets all in the same year(2015), Oneplus looked average, not to mention their breakup with cyanogenmod( which really contributed to the hype).
Excellent video, I have bought the OPO, via an invite on the end of June a month or so after it came out, and actually wanted to get it at that time, and not be an early adopter, used the phone, it still works if I should want to use it. I do think the OP2 was a disappointment, my next purchase was the OP3t which I still use and found it to be excellent. I didn't see the need for OP5, and really didn't see a big improvement over the 3t. I did place an order for the 5t and canceled, and only reason is I got the Essential PH-1 for $US292 to the door, was supposed to get the 360' camera, but canceled it, saving me a few bucks. I do happen to like the Essential, and I do know it's polarizing with camera issues, and potential viability of the company. I do plan on getting the OP6, depending on what it offers, as well as what other devices are available and at what price. There is no perfect device, nor do I think they are perfect, but they do provide value . Since I got my OPO and till now, I have only seen two other people in the wild one person was where I formerly worked, and at my new job by a resident physician. Luckily I have not have to use their customer service, and never heard anything good about it. Not sure if the improved or not.
Listens to the community? Because I really want a stock android phone that looks like an iPhone 7 plus from behind. Sure... Or no, i think I want a phone that looks like a vivo or an oppo phone. Yup they really did give what the community asked for.
