OnePlus and enthusiast brands vs their inevitable change...

First rule of capitalism is to sell to anyone that wants to buy. This kind of seems like a basic concept. This is kind of a confusing video. It seems like he was really trying to go someplace but, ultimately he lost his way in the process. Personally, after watching this I really kind of feel like this was a video that was really about nothing. Ultimately, startup companies like OnePlus evolve when they become more successful and that's just the way it goes. If you like their products then buy them. If you don't like their products then move on to something else. Personally, I love their products and with the exception of a couple of nitpicks I think they are very solid. I am far more likely to purchase a OnePlus phone that I am a samsung. Frankly, Samsung is a high quality product that stuffs their phones full of all kinds of amazing features. However, about 70% of those features most people never even use. I feel that one plus keeps their products simple and easy to use. They really don't stuff them full of features that are ultimately unused and just hang around in the settings menu and the app drawer.

Yes, at this time in history these more in depth consideration about tech are much more valuable dissertation compared to the usual reviews, and I've commented on the reason why I think it this way below other recent videos you made. The question about OnePlus is, are enthusiast phones still a thing? My - personal - answer is no, and OnePlus has been one of the greatest, probably unconscious culprits of this state of things. They launched the flagship killer concept, which ended up being one of the biggest triggers to what Marques used to refer as the "cheap phones are getting good, good phones are getting cheap" formula (I don't remember the exact words but you get it). So what's today's scenario like? Any phone is a potential flagship killer for the use that 95% of people will make of it, so there are not substantial difference between 250$ devices and 800$ devices to the eye of the mainstream guy. The Android world finds itself in a territory where goodness is basically a commodity that you can take for granted at almost any level of the market, so there's little left to work on in order to outstand in the crowd. That's why I deem as desperate the attempts to show off collaboration with camera makers (again, OnePlus I'm watching you), or cramming on as many gimmicky features and cameras that you'd never use in every day life. And, to round it all up, this explains why Apple are the only ones that are benefitting of all this, since the matter of having an integrated ecosystem is a competitive advantage that when the field is hardware-wise level, it's just impossible to offset.

Enthusiast companies only have two options. Move on to the mainstream or they die. Me: yeah that seems fair and reasonable. The essential brand logo comes up.......... Me: Remembering that I'm watching this on an Eessential pH 1 IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!!!😭 ¡Vive la révolution!

As a oneplus fangirl, it was great to hear this explanation at to why I've been feeling conflicted towards the brand. I tried pixel for a while, and while it arguably had some better features, it just didn't have that wonderful well-rounded oneplus feeling. My 8pro just broke and I'm desperately looking for an alternative, but the 9 series just seems too far gone, overhyped, and overpriced. I'd love to hear some suggestions!

Thanks to you, MKBHD, I bought the OnePlus One in 2015. I bought a replacement battery on eBay in 2019 for $11. I had some problems recently with the phone and did a factory reset. The phone is as good as new! Just remember to disable all your 2-factor authentication before doing a factory reset.

Hey bro overall Your channel bonkers And your reviews spot on and highly informative. But I'ma 'pull you up this one' Tell the truth about Chinese made phones, YOU KNOW GOOD AND WELL, we shouldn't be buying them, too many Chinese companies spy + can't be trusted with our data, mostly banned by US Gov., And who knows which companies will get banned next (So how you going to advise buy a Chinese made phone?) Honestly I feel like you're not saying this, PERHAPS not wanting 2 offend phone some makers.. if IF this is so don't do that bro you'll lose credibility, And that's why most people watch. All you got is your rep... so I'm saying always keep it 💯. Always at all times. But you're great, I'mma keep watching, keep up the good work later.

My disappointment purely stems that they just became another company, like all the rest, that I could care less about. I like them because they made budget phones, with good specs, that looked decent, and while you might have given up some of the newest, "hottest" features, you weren't actually losing out on almost anything in reality. But now, they're expensive, have too many versions you have to sift through, and lost everything that made them unique or good vs. anyone else. I was fine up through the OnePlus 6. 6T was cool, but pushing it. After that, they tanked. I moved to other phones. With software being their only potential selling point anymore, they basically have none. It's pretty easy, once you do it once or twice, to use a different launcher. So I can really use any clean UI that I like on any phone. So what was the selling point again?

i still rock my OnePlus 5 5005 and works like brand new !! coming from the 3T and after years of use not even 1 problem with `em ! What i particularly love about my phone are the tabs , middle button and back button that gives it the classic look as phones use to be , i hate the all screen versions where you have no buttons at all except the side ones , i really hope they come back with a model like the OnePlus 5 A 5005 :( !

I feel like your explanation on pricing is very unfair on OnePlus. True, their phones have almost tripled in price over the timescale mentioned, but that isn't OnePlus being ridiculous... it's the entire market. To me, OP still represents the enthusiast. They offer phones with incredible specs in all the areas that matter, while sacrificing specs in those that don't. When I bought my OP6T, I couldn't find any phone with the same incredible specs performance-wise that wasn't £200 more, forcing me to pay for things I didn't want like a ridiculous camera, swimming-grade waterproofing, wireless charging etc. I still feel they offer that more than others. Sure, OPPO, RealMe and the like are now bigger outside of China so there's more option now but as you say, it's all one company in reality.

Totally agree with you Buddy... Using OnePlus 3 since 4+years. And had recommended about 1+ phones to my friends and they bought it too and were satisfied with the product and since then Was closely looking at how OnePlus is moving ahead... Now i too agree that, they are losing their fanbase including me. I wish they could have done other better to grow way round.... now my next phone will be best one under my budget... Dear OnePlus you were sidetracked and moved away from your original motive... once was a Fan of OnePlus. Goodbye
