    On the other hand, which manufacturer doesn't lie, or "uses tricks"?


    This doesn't justify the act of course, but others aren't better.

    That's why you wait for reviews, and don't blindly believe a stupid presentation.


    And Pixel 3 / XL also had 2 hand full of problems waiting to be fixed, months and months after release.


    Same with new graphic Cards. AMD or Nvidia only use specific Benchmarks, where their own Product looks good.

    AMD will use Doom or other Vulkan games.

    Nvidia will use Games where Nvidia has the edge, like many e-sports games etc.

    Well, this isn't lying but it doesn't show the whole picture.


    Stuff like that happens all the time.


    This Thread could be literaly changed to talk about every single Smartphone manufacturer, not just Oneplus.

    Ok, well, LYING about 3x zoom isn't just marketing it's fraud, if apple for example called there 2x zoom 3x people would mad and rant like tons at them

    I have no use for them because for the most part, I'm semi-anti-social across distances. I prefer conversation to be physical face to physical face. I have to physically lay eyes on who I'm talking to in order for the conversation to be real. Otherwise, it's just someone trying to get a hold of you and for some reason, I'm not about that. If someone wants to get a hold of me, they gotta do it physically in person.

    This is my point exactly. Neither are deals worth ever picking up. You can get the exact same phone for free at Bestbuy and just pay a monthly bill.

    Reason I don't want a monthly contract anymore is because I upgrade phone yearly on release of new one.

  4. First of all I don't hate OnePlus (I've owned a few of there phones) but they have some stuff they need to address and sort because it's bad marketing and bad reputation

    1. First of all the "10-layer liquid cooling system" is just a standard heatpipe (Source: JerryRigEverything OP7 pro teardown)

    2. The 3x optical zoom is fake it's 2.2x and digitial (Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/oneplus/comments/brxs28/oneplus_7_pros_telephoto_camera_is_not_3x/

    3. Multiple users reporting 'ghost touch issue' on the 7 pro (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GT1U8ilxy4k&feature=youtu.be

    4. They're no longer a 'flagship killer' they're the flagship, phones with glass back? what's the point if no added feature is given e.g. wireless charging.

    5. There 7 pro ads are photoshopped the bezels are bigger irl (https://prnt.sc/nt0qzs)


    OnePlus started as a brand for consumer and are now like any other phone company.

    Well we can do that here too but it's for 60 months instead of 30 months. Probably the same as there.


    Do you get the phone for free in the UK when you do this though?

    nope, thats just contract for data and calls and texts.

    In America, we just pay monthly for the service and the phone is free... $33.34 a Month. Don't you have to pay monthly for the service anyway? I haven't owned a phone in like 20 years so I wouldn't know if that's how it works nowadays.

    Yeah, we pay monthly but it's cheaper than the us lol we pay like £15 a month for just 

  7. Currently got a bt homehub 6a and it's honestly terrible, had a TP-LINK TD-W9970 and it's connection kept dropping / ping spikes in csgo and other games.

    Looking for a router/modem combo as cheap as possible but if cheap isn't possible I will just pay more.

    Suggestion? Amazon.co.uk only please.
