When companies are slowly getting *away* from curved displays, OnePlus is getting into it. After years of denying effectiveness of *wireless charging*, bringing it to the table in a *pro* device. And, then charging as much as Apple/Samsung while having arguably less resale value both in market and in trade-ins.
Well, they finally had a fatal self-inflicted gun shot.

Oh well, reduced the base storage from last year's 256GB to 128GB and still not having microSD card slot. Hell of an upgrade from 7 Pro!!!

At that price... it's no longer a flagship killer. Samsung S20 series when on sale ($200 off S20/S20+ unlocked version currently) or price drop after a few months after launch seems more interesting than OnePlus.

Oneplus used the typical startup business model. Offer an affordable initial product to lure customers and then once you establish a customer base jack up the cost to what you really want to charge.

I dont think their price is bad, remember s20 ultra is $1400. Their 1+1 was 299 when samsung was asking $650 for their top phone.

But limited trade-in and resale is concern.

oneplus phone typically performs better comparing with Samsung phones after 2/3 years.

If you are going to change to new phone after 2 years, S20 series with buy back maybe better.

I am debating right now.

Oh.. and 5G doesn't work for AT&T, Sprint, VZW, and U.S. Cellular. apparently according to OnePlus "Check carrier compatibility"; only works with T-Mobile, but then 5G isn't really widespread and mainstream yet.

The galaxies have been overpriced for years. Phones struggle to keep their value, this is especially true for Samsung. 1+ phones usually hold somewhat better.

T-Mobile's n71 5G is fine in major markets, including NYC. Only issue is that speed doesn't exceed 4G much, so it feels pointless.

The lack of trade in value and resale value relative to other manufacturers in this price segment (Apple/Samsung) are the real deal killer.

At this price point, I dont see why you would choose OnePlus 8+ over s20... Only thing that looks good about the 8+ is the ultra wide camera. But at 899 is not worth that..
