Product Opinion: Oneplus 8 pro

Hey everyone out there.

I’m here with my first post on my personal blog. And I’m gonna share my opinion on one of the most anticipated Flagship phone of Oneplus. That’s none other than the Oneplus 8 pro series. This is truly a real flagship phone from Oneplus. Usually Oneplus phones are known as,

Oneplus Phones – Flagship Killer

Oneplus Journey:

If you’ve followed this new mobile brand (not now), Oneplus was solely a customer-centric phone who kept the needs and suggestions of the users in every phone they launch. They were indeed the Flagship killers because they offer the same functionality which were available in the Flagship phones which were much expensive. This is how the brand “Oneplus” gained traction across the markets around the globe.

This time Oneplus took a giant leap from being the flagship killer to a pure Flagship mobile phone manufacturer. This month they released their Oneplus 8 series. The most awaited phone which has the IP68 certification for Waterproofing and Wireless Charging, that too at 30W which is first of its kind. Charging a mobile phone wirelessly is something which none of us would have dreamt of. But Wireless charging at 30W, which gives 50% in less than 30 minutes. That’s ridiculously overpowered.

So you would’ve got a glimpse of the Oneplus history and their bold move in the market here. Yes the phone which we are gonna review is the Oneplus 8 pro.

A true flagship phone from Oneplus

Oneplus: The game changer:

Often when noticed, the price of any gadgets especially the mobile phones would be cheaper in the US than in India. I find many of my friends request their relatives or friends to get a phone from the US when returning back because of the cheaper price. But now the plates are reversed.

Compared to Indian consumers of phones, the US phone users still have it easy. The phones are often cheaper in the US, but companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus have reversed the trend, possibly thanks to local manufacturing in India, lower margins, tighter supply chains, and more frugal distribution network.

The US has always been lucky when it comes to iPhone prices. For instance, the Apple iPhone SE 2020 starts at $399 in the US while in India it costs Rs 42,500. There is a difference of Rs 11,000.

The OnePlus 8 Pro starts at Rs 54,999 in India but in the US it costs $899. There is a difference of around $180. The OnePlus 8 Pro 12GB and 128GB variant in India costs Rs 59,999 while in the US it costs a whopping $999.

The US media is writing about it, anguished that OnePlus 8 phones in their country are more expensive than what they cost in India. One wrote on social media, “I was excited to get the OnePlus on @TMobile but the US pricing compared to India and China is a joke! Why do other countries get a price of 20 percent lower?”

Enough of the jealous game! Upon looking the specifications and features Oneplus offers, I’d definitely replace my Oneplus 5T with this beast. May be I’m a huge fan of Oneplus. But now you tell me if the Oneplus 8 pro is gonna make an impression on your hand or not.
