Jojo, 12 Apr 2020Yep, punch hole and huge price make it a fail. K30 is a better buy.I hope K30 Pro doesn't leave 400 US Dollar mark. It will be great hit in India.
Jojo, 12 Apr 2020Yep, punch hole and huge price make it a fail. K30 is a better buy.Surely it will be flop as One Plus 7 series flop too as it hit 750 dollar mark in US. This will hit 1000 dollar mark easily in US. Once it crossed 35000 INR mark in India, it was no buy here. One Plus 7 series has lots of bugs and camera was not upto the mark even after four months of updates. No doubt One Plus 7 Pro was one hell of device but camera was not upto the mark even after so many updates. Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 8 Pro sometimes clicked better pictures at times.
It was times when people come around and ask me for suggestion on cost effective premium phones, the first name comes out from myself is OP. I constantly followed the brand since OP 1 and those times they announced such device for $300 with lesser compromises. Now they have settled with things that they actually promised to compete with.
Nowadays, people come and ask how about getting OP, but now I keen on getting them to better alternative brands like Asus, Xiaomi even sometimes Samsung's, Nokia's, LG's.
Regarding OP8 & PRO, a sensible buyer will look ahead and match it with Asus ROG 2, Samsung S10 lite, LG V60, Mi 10/Pro or even Honor V30/ 30 pro to decide OP or the Other.
Let's hope the YouTube reviewers etc who've been overlooking the various issues with OP devices recently, don't continue to overlook them now OP are charging Samsung/Apple prices for an inferior product. Samsung are already discounting the SG20's by 20% in the UK, who on earth would any sane person pay far more for an OP device, even in normal times let alone now when the whole of Europe is on its knees.
T M, 11 Apr 2020I predict this gen is going to be a huge flop. Reality check for OP.Yep, punch hole and huge price make it a fail. K30 is a better buy.
Adoogle, 12 Apr 2020Yeah, absolutely. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ (4G version) is priced a tad cheaper than the OnePlu... moreThe 4G version of S20+ is priced at INR 78000 while this leak says the 8 pro will be priced between INR 62000-64000. Not sure how the S20+ 4G is cheaper.
Even the old S10+ is priced at INR 65000 in India lol.
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2020That is your opinion, for me, make Google services works on a Huawei phone only cost me 10 min... more Even if you get play services installed in 10min, banking apps, streaming apps like Netflix , games which require play services etc still won't work since it's nodded play store and services that you'd be installing.
Sunny, 11 Apr 2020Exactly..No need to buy overpriced OnePlus (so called flagship killer) when you can get a real... moreYeah, absolutely. The Samsung Galaxy S20+ (4G version) is priced a tad cheaper than the OnePlus 8 Pro.
Problem is, I like most, do not want the lacklustre Exynos SoC, and desire the Snapdragon 865. Problem 2, the non-5G version of the S20+ is not sold in my location (US / UK / EU).
May have to try to get the Galaxy S20+ (4G version) from India (where it has been confirmed to be sold).
IMHO, 5G should only need to be considered by the majority in a couple of years time when two conditions are met:
(1) a fuller nationwide 5G rollout has occurred
(2) when Qualcomm have integrated the 5G modem with the successor of the 865 as a single SoC, similar to what Qualcomm has already achieved with the 765 and 765G SoCs (both of which have integrated 5G within these two upper-mid tier SoCs).
T M, 11 Apr 2020I predict this gen is going to be a huge flop. Reality check for OP.I jolly well hope your prediction shall be borne in reality, for OnePlus will have placed profits before technological prowess.
Their motto "Never settle" was indicative of their tirelessness in bringing the latest and greatest hardware superiority for one's dollar. Sadly with the eight series, "Never settle" now refers to their desire to ensure they shall not rest until their retail price matches with their South Korean and Cupertino competitors.
We need to send a clear message to Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, that we the users are unlike the i S h e e p l e who engage in blind idolatry in purchasing every product that graces a part-bitten logo. We, the OnePlus users, scrutinise the specs and price, and shall not be driven by irresponsible brand loyalty.
Tawrat, 12 Apr 2020No waterproofing again 😡 this is making me sick, oneplus plz waterproof ur mobile 😖😖Incorrect. The OnePlus 8 Pro will have an ingress protection of IP68. I can only assume the OnePlus 8, in spite of not having been certified, shall also be unofficially IP68 rated. If in doubt, one can always perform the "bucket test", as did OnePlus with the 7 Series - refer to the following for a fuller explanation.
Tawrat, 12 Apr 2020No waterproofing again 😡 this is making me sick, oneplus plz waterproof ur mobile 😖😖The oneplus 8 pro has ip68, non pro doesn't
Good strategy, leak ridiculously hiked price graph to make it a topic of discussion and then reveal a lower original price with launch to convince people that it's cheaper than the expected price.
No waterproofing again 😡 this is making me sick, oneplus plz waterproof ur mobile 😖😖
I think the 6 series were the peak phones tht could compete with the flagships of the time.Since then I feel like it's a mix and match for oneplus with the 7 series.
This is a smart strategy from OnePlus. Now with Huawei out of the way, they will be what people choose instead.
I think the camera on the OnePlus Pro will be and must be on pair with Samsung for them to succeed. I see where they going bold and smart move
