The Best Flagship Killers of 2019

There was a time when many companies bragged that they will release the best “flagship killer” for that year. There was serious competition for a smartphone with top specs, but closer to mid-range price. I still remember the OnePlus One or the Nexus series, smartphones that had awesome specs, even though they had a few missing features that were omitted in order to get the price down. For a while, however, flagship-killers faded away from the market and only recently…

OnePlus 7T Pro launched with upgraded hardware and improved design

We knew for a few weeks that the OnePlus 7T Pro is scheduled for launch and yesterday the company finally revealed their new smartphone. We’ve been used to OnePlus having two interations per year, but because they launched two smartphones in the first half and because the 7T was revealed not too long ago, this release feels a bit too soon. Still, they had to do it because of the influx of SD855+ smartphones that are starting to flood the…

Pete Lau teases OnePlus TV’s design

Pete Lau, OnePlus’s CEO, posted a new picture with the OnePlus TV today on Twitter. We did not get the chance to see the entire device, something that will probably only be revealed during the release, but we did get a glimpse of the back of the device. It appears to have a carbon-fiber pattern and an interesting stand design that holds the TV from the middle-top part. We don’t know if the OnePlus TV will be wall-mountable at this…

You can get it now starting at just €549 and, even though it does not offer much from a design perspective, the 7 is a an upgrade over…

OnePlus 7 pro suffers from ‘ghost touch’ problems, according to multiple users

It seems that the first batch of OnePlus 7 pros may be having a few problems. Right now it is unclear if it is a hardware problem with the screen digitizer or if it is a software problem that can be fixed with an update, but some users are reporting ghost touches on their units. The problem was reported by Android Central and they even had the exact same issue on one of their test units. To offer more details,…

The OnePlus 3 and 3t just received the Android Pie stable upgrade and it seems like the developers from OnePlus are hard at work on their next software upgrades, even though it is for newer devices. In an official post on the Chinese OnePlus Forum, the company confirmed that a closed beta for the OnePlus 6 and 6t with Android Q is underway. Furthermore, the 5 and 5t devices are scheduled to receive a beta for the new Android version…

Android Pie Stable for the OnePlus 3 and 3t rolling out

We knew for quite a while that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3t will receive Android Pie. The three-year-old smartphones had the beta available for a few months and now the stable version of Android 9 is being pushed to consumers. The devices were originally shipped with Android 6 and having such good software support from the company is impressive and rarely seen. Along with a new major version of the OS, the software ads some other improvements, bug…

OnePlus has a new (famous) ambassador

Well…this is a bit awkward. OnePlus announced today that they have a new ambassador. For those that don’t know, a brand ambassador is a famous person that is the image of the brand for a period of time. That person will appear in ads, commercials and will, in general, endorse the brand. Ambassadors cost a lot of money due to their status and this one may be one of the most expensive for a mobile brand. Robert Downey Jr, the…

Xiaomi mocks the OnePlus 7 Pro on social media

OnePlus has evolved a lot since it’s debut. The original OnePlus one was extremely competitive for that time from a price to performance ratio. It has some minuses and lacked a few features that flagships back then had, but the price made it very attractive for many buyers. Since then, the gap in pricing between a OnePlus smartphone and a flagship device from other manufacturers has shrunk. OnePlus still offers a really good price to performance ratio, but it is…
