i have allways used oneplus (since they came on the marked)
but the never settle dont match up with the price on oneplus anymore
price is going up but its allmost the same price now as apple an samsung
but the function off the firmware is the same as a cheap phone
on that part xiaomi is way ahead of oneplus
I agree with the pricing. OnePlus is not cheap anymore. But the mi 10 is also not a cheap phone. But I see myself willing to pay more now because phones are how more part of our life's then ever. It has completely replaced my laptop, photo camera, wallet. and much more. I use my phone around 3 to 5 hour's a day.
I try to keep a phone for 2 years and am now on a OnePlus 5t. It served me well but the bigger screen, 5g and improved camera zoom is what I am looking for most. Speed of my old phone is still fine. I always give my old phone away to someone in the family that needs a new one but can't afford to buy one.
Why 5g, because I am an mobile network engineer and build the towers myself. It's cool to use the newest technologies.
I use a dual SIM because of my work number. By boss gives me unlimited data and my own subscription is the cheapest I could find at 2.50 euro a month. I only use it for calling and WhatsApp. If I would Carry 2 phones I would need a bigger subscription with 20 gb data. That would cost me around 24 per month. The money I save I can now use for a more expensive phone.
