locantori, 28 Jul 2020so, GSMArena also in the same situation as jerryrig ? trying to cover up for the build fail , ... moreI think you people don’t get it! This video probably and likely sponsored by the Oneplus itself. This is being used as bait & promote principle to aspire for much expensive Oneplus by the most instead of going after cheaper Nord by the potential 8 & 8 Pro buyers. Those who do not have money anyways will go after this with small orders (most likely flash sales). Here OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro going like hot cakes. By making it look like a cheap plastic they trap fence sitters with expensive one. Just imagine if Nord is perceived as premium, Oneplus will lose all its premium customers to cheaper Nord!
Also this is not available in USA
so, after those many articles about nord (which seems like advertising to me) now they post article the nord cracks? hmm..
locantori, 28 Jul 2020so, GSMArena also in the same situation as jerryrig ? trying to cover up for the build fail , ... moreThis is why I rely more on Android Authority. They're more neutral without covering up any news.
They did not overhype the Nord news.
They reported the Android wallpaper bug.
They also mentioned the 2nd India apps ban along with hundreds of additional apps under surveillance.
They also do not interview that Realme boss.
And there are also less iOS trolls in AA.
so, GSMArena also in the same situation as jerryrig ? trying to cover up for the build fail , by saying its not a big deal???
come on ... if you want to be promoting either state it clearly or do it smartly, its so obvious that MKBHD jerryrig... and now gsmarena want to praise this silly phone for no good reason more further to cover up the build fail!
YUKI93, 28 Jul 2020Jokes on you, I used to have OnePlus One and 5 and both of them never had any quality issue at... moreNo shit sherlock.
Those were the times before OnePlus was good.
You can't say the same for the last few OnePlus phones.
It's been obvious for a while that OnePlus have become who they took market share from in the first place.
The OS enhancements are impressive, but their original price/performance argument has been shattered. Realme is probably the new OnePlus these days, and earlier-era OnePlus consumers like myself should probably be looking at them if they're still OK buying Chinese. (Which I'm personally not, but I'm fully aware my A70 was suboptimal on price-performance. But then so are OnePlus now.)
Djnady99, 28 Jul 2020that's right!!!
pocof1 is far better then nord 1+.
i said before, i will say it once ... moreWell looks like you only care about specs and numbers.
Realme X2 Pro is not good because of its poorly made software with ads.
Consider the Poco F2 Pro instead as it's priced attractively, but also with dependable build quality. It also comes with great specs as I mentioned somewhere else.
If you like photography then a Mi Note 10 is for you. It's a toughly-built phone.
Same like an iPhone SE and its fast chipset but beware of its tiny battery and thick bezels, with small screen. It also has IP rating.
You can consider a Huawei Nova 7 (not sure about price, but it should cost like $400-$500) if you don't need GMS.
MrKong, 28 Jul 2020Plastic phones like Poco F1 and Samsung A50 does not bend under stress. The Nord is just cheap... morethat's right!!!
pocof1 is far better then nord 1+.
i said before, i will say it once again this -- >
I've Pocophone f1 top variant 8gb ram & 256 stoarge size.
i had purchased this phone 2 years back & it still cost me 27000 INR.
Oneplus being an Mid-Range smartphone is still charging 28000 INR & After few months 25 INR.
At this Point of time, Poco F1 Top Variant will cost somewhere in between 18000 INR To 20 INR.
It does as Old Flagship Chipset and Performance is yet so good as well as Memory card Slot & Above Decent/Average as compare to today's Flagship phones and also, it has 3.5mm jack audio jack port too.,
I'd go an buy another pocof1 and back cover skin or Solid Good looking backover yet i will save alot of money xD
If not pocophone then, Realme X2 pro, Oppo A92s, Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite or Xiaomi Redmi 10X or various other brands that can offer good features in lower price.
Its just hype for mid-range phone by oneplus.
Because, i dont remember last time when did Oneplus even advertise in such a way to create a hype for ther flagship phones.
ask your self when do u create hype of something, its only when the product is super awesome or super disappointing.
This phone was frickin overhyped.
Zack hit them where it hurt.
All those that claim this phone will not crack "in the real world," must have never waited for the delivery of something heavy and important where you need to carry the final meters to your home. That's when people, in the stress of the moment, put the phone in the back pocket. Then, they bend their legs to carry the object (putting stress on the phone), sometimes even forgetting the phone is there and sitting on it afterwards.
That is just real life gentlemen, not the perfect bubble you may idealize.
Well marketing phone ...
In the outcome test ,and I mean results in real life test. not durability ...
It's not that impress.
It have some cons over competitors
But overall it's a lot of hype, on well marketing mobile.. in the end of day see mkhbd reviews also it failed to impressed in the mid range segment.
Thanks for the video, I hope you had some sponsor to pay for the phone. ;-)
