The days when the brandOnePlus Served as a quality alternative to the flagship products of other manufacturers at half the price are officially behind us, it seems - when the new generation was unveiled with an initial recommended cost of 700 euros
It's no secret that leading smartphone prices have been steadily rising in recent years, with a common price of $ 800 or euro for the most advanced models from a few years ago becoming $ 1,000 or euro as a base, with even more advanced and sophisticated models soaring above that threshold. The new global also allows manufacturers who have built the good oil as a more competitive and informed choice (without compromising on technology and processing power) to enjoy increased profit margins.
עבור OnePlus Chinese, which has become a popular choice in quite a few Western markets since 2014, the process began several years ago - and now with the official announcement for OnePlus 8 andOnePlus 8 Pro It seems that everyone can agree that the company's devices can no longer belong to the popular and budgetary category, for better or worse.
