  1. I like how OEM cite the consumer data they have saying that we like slim phones but we know, at least the enthusiasts, that we want thicker phones for better battery life. And don't forget, us the enthusiasts drive the future trends:
    -we wanted 90/120hz displays
    -we wanted higher performance
    -we wanted better and brighter displays
    not the average consumers, but us the enthusiasts will drive the next trends too, like:
    -better battery life
    -less cumbersome software
    -flat displays again
    -no notches

  2. I'm really impressed that Carl is so well informed and honest. Never heard such an transparent and in deep interview about a smartphone.

    I like OnePlus for that.

  7. i can’t explain it but whenever he interviews people, marques has the vibe of a (very talented) middle schooler doing the school news

  8. Wishing oneplus would focus more on America, everyone I show my 7 pro to is amazed but just doesn't trust it because they don't see advertising in usa, easy customers
