That's just bad cutting price 8n a country other than the rest like India or China for Xiaomi you can't give benefits to certain fans and the screw the others dislike OnePlus and Xiaomi.
Whackcar, 19 Apr 2020It seems OnePlus's drastic price increase is only limited to North America & Europe. That ... moreEssentially the purchasers of the OnePlus 8 Series in North America and EU are subsidising the cost of their brethren and sistren in India, China, and possibly other parts of South-East Asia.
Let it be known that though the median wage in western Europe is vastly higher than in the Indian subcontinent and South-East Asia (excluding Singapore), the cost of living in the developed World is high, particularly in the capitals, e.g., London.
I think it's only fair for OnePlus to subsidise their phone if they want me to buy it, for my path is not paved with gold.

Nikitesh, 19 Apr 2020Actually the difference in price is because of 5g, here in india there is no 5g.It doesn't matter they're still built with the 5G chip inside of them
I just watched a YouTube video by a well-known reviewer to that said the newest software update that was sent via OTA yesterday has dramatically improved the cameras on the pro that they are absolutely fantastic now iscwhat he said

Leo, 19 Apr 2020I remember the ps3 being priced at usd 600 in usa and usd 1000 india and i cried alot. Agree. The pricing differs not only for phones but other electronics as well. Gaming consoles are another gadget that is way cheaper in USA than anywhere else. Sony isn't a US company, and still
This is first fairly priced phones in india. All electronics are costlier here. Recently I asked my friend to purchase ultrabook from US and bring it when coming back. I'll save 650 US dollers.

Slower charger. NO local warranty and after sales services. Having to send the phone outside and pay insurance is something that in itself does not pay off the investment.
And then add how they laugh in our face overpricing them that much when we watch clearly how they should cost, like in the past. Enough reasons to not buy.

IMO, 8pro is at the the same level or better is some aspects ultra. It comes with a faster wired charger out of the box, brighter & more color accurate display and higher refresh rate on higher resolution. In camera it competes with it in every aspect. Have better android skin (subjective) and will be getting faster updates.
