OnePlus 3T has Some Great Specs, But is Overpriced in Many Regions

OnePlus set a new standard in the smartphone world by offering flagship performance at an unbelievably affordable pricing. Up until the OnePlus 3T got launched, things seemed that way but the company’s impressive new model seems to be overpriced in many regions.

The OnePlus 3T is the follow up model to the immensely successful OnePlus 3. For almost many months, the latter continued to be the best phone for mid-range budget but offered iPhone like performance, build quality and features. The new model however was priced much higher at $439 for the 64GB edition while the 128GB edition sells for about $479.

As with many electronic devices, the pricing undergoes great fluctuation in US, UK, Europe and other parts of the world. They easily touch $500 and go way higher in some places. Adding grief to the situation, the OnePlus 3 has already been discontinued in US and Europe. The company confirmed that they are not going to add new stocks and the newly launched phone will be the only option to go for.

The problem with this price range is that it comes close to the likes of iPhone 7, Google Pixel phones. The other end of the spectrum is dominated by so many value for money models like the Moto Z Play, Asus Zenfones and Samsung models. OnePlus 3T has to compete with phones in three different classes as they have priced it somewhere around $450, making it neither too expensive nor too cheap to go with your eyes closed.

Such issues were never faced by the OnePlus 3 that was a runaway hit. In terms of specifications, the 3T has the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with a bigger 16 megapixel Samsung camera and a larger 3,400 mAh battery. It runs on Marshmellow and is expected to be updated to Nougat in the near future. It is important to wait for a couple of weeks and see how well the phone fares in the market. All major smartphone manufacturers are ready to unleash their onslaught of 2017 models with competitive pricing probably in the next quarter.

  1. This was something that eventually got fixed through software updates, which is at least a testament to OnePlus listening to its customers. Out of the box colours are a little oversaturated but the display looks great and in truth, this is how I left the display during most of my testing.

  2. The crux of your writing whilst appearing agreeable initially, did not work very well with me after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do well to help fill in all those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly end up being fascinated.

  3. Thank you for any other great post. Where else may anybody get that kind of info in such an ideal way of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
