OnePlus succeeds because of its desire to copy Apple

Why do you think OnePlus succeeded where other startups have failed?

OnePlus is gearing up to launch a new phone soon, and as the case has been for the past couple of devices the company’s released, the leaks and rumors we’ve seen have caused a lot of people to voice their many complaints. Whether it be due to rising prices, new gesture systems, or its notch, the OnePlus 6 has already gotten a lot of folks flustered even before  [Read More…]

OnePlus explains the rationale behind the notch on the OnePlus 6

OnePlus 5T no longer being sold in North America

After four months on the market, OnePlus has run through its entire stock of OnePlus 5T smartphones for North America.

Over the last three years, OnePlus managed to carve out a niche for itself by selling phones for a couple hundred dollars less than the likes of the flagships from Samsung, Google, and LG while offering the same top-of-the-line specs. The Chinese brand isn’t the first one to do so, as the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, and  [Read More…]

The OnePlus 5T is no longer for sale in North America

OnePlus has stopped selling the 5T to North American customers.

OnePlus has a certain pattern with its phone releases: there is a new release about every six months, and it stops selling the current model before the new one is announced. To that end, OnePlus has stopped sales of the 5T before announcing the OnePlus 6.

Engadget reports that the stock shortage is due to higher-than-expected demand, and the company does not intend to manufacture any more  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S9+ vs. OnePlus 5T: Here’s what the extra $300 gets you

The OnePlus 5T has a lot to offer for $ 500, but you get so much more with the Galaxy S9+.

With the Galaxy S9 series, Samsung isn’t reinventing the wheel: the core design aesthetic is the same as last year, but there are a few key upgrades, particularly in the camera department.
