OnePlus and enthusiast brands vs their inevitable change...
You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain

The point is as an enthusiast, you can’t expect ANY company that is enthusiast focused to sustain it self in the long run, because enthusiasts are probably less than 1% of total sales. Sales are what keep EVERY. SINGLE. BUSINESS. well... in business. It’s not what YOU want, it’s what does EVERYONE want as a whole that keeps things moving along. This is why Apple and Samsung are such strong players in this market. It’s also why Essential failed, as great as they were, and when someone would ask what phone I had, they had NEVER heard of the company.

I've actually had both an oppo (Find 7) and now currently have a OnePlus 7 pro. I do genuinely love the brands and their products, and genuinely can't wait for the 9 pro launch. I've always been a fan of specs more than name and always enjoy looking for the phones no one really knows of but are "flagship killers" Great vid as always though

I really like my 5T but the battery life is going. The 5T was the best bang for its buck of its time, what would be the best bang for the buck nowadays?

You never go back once you get a OnePlus. Even their "budget" phones nowadays are still ridiculously good.

Im still using my One+1 with LineageOS. The hardware is plenty fast for my needs. It was indeed a flagship killer for it's time. But as they slowly released more phones the price creep has made them look less and less attractive as a viable upgrade.

Watching this on my 5T . I can honestly say, that i see no reason to replace it. It replaced HTC One M8 and still holds battery charge very well and only got charging jack replaced. Which was super easy, barely an inconvenience.

OnePlus is a brand of BBK Electronics Corporation. Other BBK brands are Oppo, Vivo, Realme, iQOO. So money spent on OnePlus and Oppo go to the same place and BBK is #2 mobile seller in the world behind Samsung. You can drop the OnePlus brand you are no longer happy with, and move to Oppo brand and still be buying from BBK. For me, I just see all the Chinese brands as mercantilist, CCP phones built by quasi slave labor. I go with LG who takes pride in building mostly in S Korea (although they have moved some fabs to Vietnam, Malaysia etc)

I started with my 6t and after years with it, I finally thought I would get another phone. I tried some other phone and lasted 1 day with some LG that was featureless compared to a 3-year-old 6t. No face ID was a huge deal and it was slow as molasses. I ended up getting an 8 pro and tbh, it is not a crazy upgrade. I could have saved myself $$$ and stuck with the 6t. The greatest improvement is the larger better screen. I honestly would not be able to live without the faceid and fingerprint scan that was amazing in the 6t and way ahead of its times. The charging with the warp charging was amazing for its day.

I had a OnePlus 6T for like 2 days and kept having issues with the microphone levels being too low. Sent that POS back and got a Pixel instead. I hate when companies add shells to the existing OS. The core Android OS is just fine as it is, no need to spruce it up and create instability.

I do enjoy this type of video. I am one of the original One Plus customers. I bought my One Plus One (1+1) right after they first came out. I'm not a heavy cell phone user so I actually still use this phone. I never changed away from the Cyanogen operating system and now it's too late to try. So I've had this phone since 2014 (I know - crazy to be using a 7 year old product) but it's always been flawless and I bought the 64 G version and still have 40% of my memory available. So.. here's the deal.. I want to hopefully repeat my positive experience with One Plus and am considering the 8T. It's currently on sale at the One Plus USA site for $749 with 12 G / 256 G memory / 120 Hz fluid display / full charge capabilities w/I 38 mins / 48 mp camera etc... I realize that $749 isn't the same as the $399 I paid in 2014... but correct me if I'm way off base.. this seems like a killer deal to me. If I could purchase a comparably speced iPhone for that kind of money but I would be surprised if Apple 's latest greatest $1200 special even equals the performance of the 8T. (Or is so mind numbingly superior that I can somehow convince myself to part with an additional $500 just to more easily mate with my IPad Pro 11". In my mind, today's (2021) $749 isn't greatly different than 2014's $399. (Remember McDonald's 50 cent cheeseburgers?) Your thoughts?

Loved this. I've been a fan of One Plus since the One Plus2 for me and I currently have a One Plus 7T. Marcus explained the issues perfectly and personally, I'm not disappointed because I feel the company did what it had to do to stay in business. I try to upgrade every couple of years so I guess I'll hold out for the One Plus 9 but one thing for sure, I'll always be a fan.

Yeah I like these types of history oriented videos. Makes sense to consider other options when it comes down to weighed in upgrades or things you're looking for when newer technology comes out, taking price into consideration, uniqueness of the product due to the fact that it isn't the most popular choice but is still kind of up there.

I think this Video is really good and a lot of true things and i love OnePlus since the beginning, BUT i think OnePlus is still the best Phone not for the Buck but overall for me the best and aswell they are still "cheap" compared to Samsung and Apple and as you said with the North they have the cheap version (again). More buts because one Phone a year would be better for the Phones and Customers maybe not for OnePlus but for everyone else. It feels like that the normal Versions aren't finished and that the T Version ist the real Phone as they would like it. Maybe im wrong thats just how it feels.

Okay but a flagship killer should be dragging the flagships closer to them, not drifting closer to the flagships. That being said, at the end of the OnePlus legacy, they've failed as a flagship killer and will simply be another branding label that drifts off into irrelevancy. And I'm typing this as a five year OP owner. My next phone will likely not be a OnePlus as it has drifted too far away from any form of redeeming characteristic and is just another soulless phone that isn't the best at anything and has lost its credibility as a loyal or honorable company. While they produce a fine product, that can be said about just about any other company in it's bracket. Not only for those reasons but also because they have too many options (no focus) and if I'm going to be forced to pick between sacrifices in my phone, I might as well consider every other option available to me from other companies. Once I'm forced to do that, OnePlus really doesn't have anything on the table for me. It was convenient to have a phone that was a pretty clear option for my price point and my personal needs in technology. It's no longer convenient to wade through varying degrees of technological sacrifice at price points that mimick the industry standard. Bad move for OnePlus. They're not relevant enough to be ditching their "enthusiasts" right now. They had a big boom in India and China however, those customers weren't loyalists. They'll hop on the next big underdogs phone and OnePlus will be left trying to redeem it's brand.

It's hard to be on a place or state being called a flagship killer at these days as any company grows popularity and success users would always expect the same price of its older device to its newer device. The smartphone market is getting more competitive as technology is rapidly growing. There wouldnt be a company with success that would be staying branded as a "flagship killer" for the rest of its existence

My whole family managed to snag Oneplus Ones. We were getting fed up with the rising cost of the new Samsung Galaxy phones and when Oneplus was saying their phone was just as good for half the price, we all jumped ship. I went from a Samsung Galaxy S Epic, to the Oneplus One, and currently have a Oneplus 5, looking to upgrade to the 8 pro or maybe whatever the 9 will look like

Thank you for the short history of OnePlus. Also I use one plus I like it because it's a good phone and I feel like it is or has the possibility of becoming a flagship phone in the future and might even pass up galaxies. They are heading in that direction I feel like. And I can't wait to see what phone comes out later this year. Because that's probably the phone I'm going to upgrade to I currently have the seven or pro 7 or whatever it's called. I hope you cover their new phone that comes out later this year.
