Nobody thought about that being the cost of the 2 VIP passes, 1 OP5 and some accesories worth around 100-120€ ? It surely won´t cost that much, not even the top version.
For this price, I'd definitely take Huawei P10. OnePlus is attractive because of combination of good specs with good price. Market is full of offers with combination of good specs and high price and there is no need not even place for one more...
Sounds like it's a higher capacity model (256gb?). a price hike of almost 40% in just a year doesn't seem very likely.
It wouldn't be terrible value to pay 550 for the base model(especially if the camera setup turns out to be good), but it would kill all the hype surrounding oneplus for me.
I'd rather buy a Samsung or LG if the pricing is going to be that high. Beats the whole point of a flagship killer at an affordable price, really.
550e in Finland. Me being from Portugal we have higher taxes so 580-600e for a flagship killer that doesn't have IP68, stereo audio, etc.. Seriously for 200e more i can get a samsung s8 which is miles away more beautiful and more Premium.
But i'm not an idiot to put 800e for a smartphone nor 500e.
The smartest move is simply going to xiaomi Mi6 which retails at 420e once the stock is back.
I really thought the OnePlus 5 would be a worthy successor of my Nexus 5 but at that price tag, i rather stick with it one more year or go for other options. Really wondering if i should get simply a OnePlus 3 used, it sells for 280e now, pretty good deal.
I don't know, what is all the bashing around here, but let me tell you something.
I have since start 1+1 and I wanted to buy, 3T later in it's production, but then it was just few months from 1+5 to be on the market. When you will look at it's specs, build and design, you can go easily with higher price tag, this one is still very good. Compare it to LG G6, Huawei P10, iPhone 7, Samsung Edge S7/S8 and OnePlus will still win it, price wise.
Towards the design, I am maybe little bit dissapointed by the bezzels at the top and bottom of the phone, but when I am looking at iPhone 7 or Google Pixel or ANY Sony phones, it's very much okey. The placement of the cameras are for me very comfortable and the design overal seems to me very minimalistic, which is cool.
My € are ready and I am waiting for the 256 GB red version :D :)
no way I'm paying that much for a company with poor after sale service... better stick with reputable companies
If it's priced over 550usd I'd probably buy the 3t instead if there's still stock in my country. And all this time waiting for the OnePlus 5 would go all to waste
Is it too early to bash One plus or should we wait for official announcement on pricing.
Usually they hike price by 50 $ each year. Now they skipped One plus 4 so they are increasing price by 100 $. this year. ---- One plus logic.
At this price LG G6 is available in India. Other than Chipset and ram LG will be superior to one plus in most of the department
Damn. One plus is also getting overpriced like Sony an also people will do the same to one plus.. if getting it getting overpriced, then we have to abandon it :(

No, actually it would be too much. The substantial price increase was not really justified from OnePlus 3 to OnePlus 3T, but I was hoping that the increase in price was to get to a price that would be sustainable for the few next models at least. But to increase the price on a second consecutive time, let alone by that much, I think will limit enthusiasts' interest in it. The whole point of the OnePlus "flagship killer" brand was excellent build quality, good software support and top specs for half the price (in other words, unbeatable value for money for a phone of top specs) - and this included people "ignoring" the lack of waterproofing or not having the best camera hardware and/or algorithms on the market. Of course, the promised excellent camera on the OnePlus 5 is a significant plus, but if it is for a price increase of €160 over the OnePlus 3, then the phone becomes much less good on the value-for-money metric, which was the category it was brought in to serve in the first place - and it served it very well up to OnePlus 3, and quite well with the 3T. But for €550 for OnePlus 5, it's just a bit better than the flagship Samsungs and the Huaweis out there, which then doesn't make it the no-brainer choice it used to be. It used to not need much advertising because quality and value talked for themselves and made it an obvious choice spreading mouth-to-mouth. So it's a pity because if it's not such an obvious choice anymore, a lot of money will need to go into advertising. Which essentially means that the people who get the phone pay more so that the phone gets advertised to them. The consumer pays more, OnePlus gains little or nothing, and the advertising agencies are the big winners in this case.
