    Much needed video imo. OnePlus prides on good word of mouth and tech influencer support. This will serve as a much needed wake up call to the brand which we all once loved. GG Austin!

    I Had the oneplus one 64gb Sandstone, best Phone i ever Had for the time. Now i have the OP 6 128gb frosted Glass, a little Boring but also fine. The price difference between the two was extreme, op 6 double the price..., in Future i will Look for a Other Brand. Maybe there is one outside that offeres 4-500€ flagship Killer reloaded ^^ i Hope so

    As a OnePlus 7T owner I had to see this video. And I gotta say... My next phone probably won't be from the brand. I bought the device around 2 years and the only thing that kinda went wrong is the fast charge (still charges slow fine) which is kinda annoying and probably has to do with the fact I didn't clean the port as often... And it definitely held better than any Samsung device I had in the past... However, it did kinda felt there was lack of performance compared to my friends' phones for examples even tho some of them ran the same CPU... And the 7T was a bit pricey two years ago, definitely can find something better from different companies for the same price and even lower... I do hope that the other brands that under BBK don't suffer from the same thing, because my next plan was getting a realme...

    They also have a bunch of shifty bugs on their software now. Google Chrome has a bunch of features that just won't work, there are issues with wifi connectivity, things the company refuses to fix no matter how many people complain. I used the silk white oneplus 6 for years and now they suddenly suck ass and I had to get a Samsung galaxy s9+

    I completely agree with the video but i still just bought the 8T because i just like the OnePlus design, software and great specs. Far from as cool as when i bought my OnePlus 3 back in the day but i'm sure i'll be happy with the device.

    I had a One Plus 5, great phone for the price, last year when I have to replace my old phone my first option was to look for the One Plus 9.... To my surprise the One Plus 9 at that moment was more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy.... So if One Plus doesn't give me the best value for my money U looked for another options....my choice was a Xiaomi Mi 11

    literally was just looking at the oneplus 9 on ebay to purchase and the one i was looking at its total was 666 and thought i should check out 1 more review for it before i made the purchase and this video popped up lol i think it might of been a sign that they're doing some evil practices lol might stick with my original choice and go with the 8t i dont want to spend 100s more for a throttled down phone heck maybe i should grab a oneplus 7 pro or just grab the weaker chip set and go with the sd card having samsung 20 plus and steer completely away from one plus im undecided i just want something with 5g and a high refresh rate so i can play xbox remote play on the go im not trying to get ripped off and buy junk

    The thing with appealing to enthusiasts is that it's a very small market which is also the hardest to please. Appealing to enthusiasts will make headlines about your company and spread your name but eventually every enthusiast company must become mainstream, therefore OnePlus is becoming another generic smartphone company. I like my 7T Pro a lot but I'm not attached to the brand and I'd gladly switch when I eventually start looking for a new phone. I like products, not brands

    A lot of tech companies are dying for various reasons. Apple probably will soon be included with the over-priced wired stuff they are doing to their machines especially now Microsoft are trying to get more Developers on their app store and they are making windows 11 more secure I feel like they could make a phone sooner or later.

    Samsung has been accused of doing this for years with different chip sets, so surprised it wasn't mentioned in the video (at least I don't remember it in the video). One Plus may be just "rebranded" Oppo's, but for me I couldn't ever get an Oppo. The Oppo's don't have enough of the 4G or 5G bands to work well on T-Mobile. I just don't want to take the chance. One Plus includes every 3G, 4G, or 5G band under the sun, so I can be assured it will work great.

I'm just happy to keep getting Android and Oxygen updates continually. They should never stop the updates because that's my bottom line.

    Sharp a Japanese brand also makes phones with near stock Android, I'm using the sharp Aquos V, sure it isn't a flagship killer, nor best price to performance. But with it's near stock Android, decent camera, and decent spec, it's a very good choice for me. Also fun fact, in my country if you buy a Sharp phone, you get a tv for free

    The more I watch videos about the phones I used to like, the more I'm being pushed to Apple. I don't care about raw performance numbers anymore. They're proven to mean basically nothing. I don't care about customizing a single letter's corner's pixel's colour. If you want to root your phone to be able to simulate all your deepest desires, go ahead. I don't care about that. At this point I just want a phone that I can use from day one. Not this fucking bullshit I'm dealing with S21 right now: "oh you have to give it a week or two to adjust, then the battery will wake up and not kick you in the ballsack with its crappiness", like what the fuck is that? Previous gens didn't have shit like this. Sure my OP7T improved over time, but it was good from day 1. Right now the battery life is fucking glorious for 3800mAh - 30 hour standby with 7:30h SoT, browsing Chrome, IG, what have you, watching YT, Netflix, whatever. 8 hours of podcasts at work, while also browsing if it's a slow day, no problem, I got you man, I still have 75% left in my tank! Charge me after work, sure, but you can do whatever for the rest of your day, maybe watch a video before bed, fall asleep, and I'll be there in the morning! Then you can put me in the charger in the morning, while you shower and shit, and I'll be full or damn near full! Shiiiit man, I got u. Meanwhile S21 is like, yo, dude, you just browsed Chrome for 20 minutes, so here's your bill of 20% battery life. Be sure to wipe my ass before you push that power button, or I'll keep consuming like 5% of you battery every 30-60 minutes for no reason lol. In short: What the fuck is going on?

    It's hard for OnePlus to continue to just pander to its original fan base of tech enthusiasts where it is a niche market. The market is majority average consumer who have no idea about specs. They just want a phone they buy on-contract with a carrier and be done with it. OnePlus now in carrier stores gets lost in a sea of Samsung Galaxys in all price points. I see how enthusiasts feel that OnePlus today is like OPPO-lite now.
