Samsung flagship have only 12 mpix and sells very well same for many other flagships.

piku, 06 Dec 2018Agreed they keep on increasing price but they are no adding anyt... moreAnd why???
Poco sold 700 000 units in 90 days and having nothing just a superB specs.
All you want cost money and all you want is important only for you and 1% of other people.
99% will take basic for basic price with a best CPU and GPU.

piku, 06 Dec 2018So one plus 5G phone will cost 900$ no thanks one plus I would r... moreMan this is real flagship.
Iphone with 5G network would cost 2000+
Same goes for Note 10 made by samsung.
Huawei P30 with 5G will be like 1100 and Pocophone would cost around 500.
Oneplus was always real flagship and with specs and price a lot better than most of its competitors only pocophone was a tottaly different league.

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2018It can cost 200 or 300 more, but will still lack HDR screen, ip6... moreMan Poco havent anything of that crap and look how its star shines and rises above thy sky of any other phone.
Do you really need people will need all that crap???
No why to pay more if 99% of people wouldnt never ever use anything of that useless crap.

5G=battery dead

Perfect excuse to rise the base model without 5G too, close the difference with the 5G model and again to increase the price. Typical move. Of course without improvements more that a bit of sugar, advertasements and a hole in the screen to justify the increased price! WoW.

no such thing as command or not, monex matrs not

Love the Community, 06 Dec 2018$200 + $300 premium? So it's like $700 - $900. OnePlus, now you'... moreEverybody in business knows that satisfying enthusiasts is only relevant during starting phase, after that enthusiasts either move on, or demand things that the company can't deliver while maintaining good profits. So the companies turn to general public, advertising, selling just the mouthful, not everything an enthusiast would expect.

Just deal with it, find something else. A brand that stays with enthusiasts is a brand that won't grow, sadly. There are some examples of good brands growing while keeping their dignity, but they really need to be exceptional or unique, then.

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2018Hmm apart from 5G what else will I get for 200-300 pounds more..... moreIt's not a bad idea though. It's going to undercut Samsung's offering and is going to still have the affordable version

His quote is not OP 5G will cost $300 more. His quote is that he believes 5G phones in general will.

OnePlus might be dieing a slow death now with this move. People brought them for affordablillty , and flagship specs now if they make a flagship at flagship price and a midrange with midrange spec.. they are no differant to anyone else so you would be better buying of a more reputable brand like Samsung , LG or Sony. Or even get a iPhone 8 as it will receive decent updates for like 3 more years..

SquadBoi, 06 Dec 2018Erm you said 1080p screens can deliver 14h SoT and we didn’t se... moreDid I? Or did I actually say that batteries aren't big enough for qhd? Op isn't going high on resolutions, because they are thinking about the battery. And with the small batteries in phones, qhd is suicide. I game a lot on my phone with 3300 mah battery, so I have about 7 hours sot. Bought the rog phone and tried it out. The better screen with 4000 mah to back it up, gave the same result. Mate 10 pro even lasts 3 hours more than p10 plus, even though it's only 250 mah more. But lower resolution. Lower resolution Samsungs also lasts longer than the qhd models.

EE already has the highest prices, another £200 is right up their street.

Can no one tell me where I can score that white case featured on the OP6T shown in the photo? I saw a few of the staff rocking that case at the NY launch, been coveting it ever since! I want to dress up my 6T too...

Zendroid, 06 Dec 2018You said many qhd phones have impressive battery life. So don't ... moreErm you said 1080p screens can deliver 14h SoT and we didn’t see any examples from you. You’re the one changing the goalposts lmao
14h SoT is a myth, Heavy use 7-9hrs is the benchmark

“It appears impossible to make a nice-looking flagship device, for now”.

Or Pete is just waiting for Apple's 2019 design so he can copy it

But yes, no qhd phone are built for the screen. So therefore qhd is worthless on a phone. Maybe ok for tablets, because they have bigger batteries to back it up.
