Anonymous, 22 Mar 2021Chinese smartphone brands are the most diverse on the plane... moreThough it may seem most of them are different from their products, but their core business model is the same. Copy everything that you can and hardware is the easiest one to copy. So, Chinese smartphones have incredible hardware but when it comes to software (that they can't copy), they loose the ground. OnePlus's struggle in the camera department is one of the best example of this model.

Coming to my previous comment "OnePlus is slowly becoming just another Chinese smartphone brand", it was in reference to their recent smartphone launches like Nord N10, N100 which are of cheap quality, their failure in providing software updates (visible from the comments of the current OnePlus owners) and their clever yet dubious marketing strategy that creates hype around the new launches just to fall short by a large margin from their claims. So, OnePlus has become just another Chinese Brand.

Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Realme are all owned by BBK Electronics, even if they deny it everytime.

This piece is totally what I need. It was with bad camera software, but that is fixed with the last few updates. Much was improved and I am perfectly happy with it. After I had two HTC at the time, - Butterfly S and Butterfly 3, this phone gave me much needed reliability due to not heating and therefore savin the battery life. Though I do not play games anymore on it, I use it a lot. It was one of the few choices I had with not glass back. Never regretted this purchase.

Unhappy iPhone User, 22 Mar 2021You said, "Looks like it's the Chinese smartphone... moreits also that hydrogenOS is relatively unpopular in china. ColorOS being on Oppo phones which are preferred in smaller city and what not. With the way ads are built into market places, its normal to see ads and they aren't pop-up ads either so not something that ruins the experience. At the same time there is no need of spyware unless something dodgy has been installed. unless u take data collection as spyware as synonyms.

HydrogenOS is so unpopular that oneplus sells poorly as users prefer miui, flyme OS and colorOS(this one being familiar). Google stock like system is not something people in China use.

Unhappy iPhone User, 22 Mar 2021Thanks @limecheesecake.

But yes, the 1+8 Pro is still an amazing phone.

limecheesecake, 22 Mar 2021I'd wait for the OnePlus 9 Pro if I were you.Thanks @limecheesecake. But since I've wasted $000s on iPhones over the last decade, I can ill afford to spend another $1000 on an unknown quantity that is the 1+9 Pro.

From what I've read, both 1+9 Pro and its predecessor are pretty similar, obviously with the exception of the latest and greatest SD SoC and the new David Hasselhoff camera lenses (autocorrect didn't like the Swedish company and replaced it with Knight Rider).

I don't need no Hoff lenses, so perhaps the 1+8 Pro would be a stellar choice for me ?
