My suggestion keep aside the money for 7t pro, start adding 1k each month to it, and in 6 months get the 8t pro or 8 pro

That's exactly my plan. Plus 2 big expenditures have turned up out of nowhere in May so have to put mobile upgrade plan on hold.

Mi 10 launched for 50k. I think Xiaomi has made a big mistake. With One plus 8 at 42k and 8 pro at 55k there will be hardly any takers for Mi 10.

surprising pricing, probably they are banking on the 108  mp camera to be the difference, samsung ultra uses the same camera module.

 

There is a 3k cash back on HDFC card, and i think a free wireless charger, so effective price will be close to One plus, but then that is only at launch. 44,999 would have been a good starting price.

One plus has better brand recognition and OS. Mi 10 gives wireless charging over ir but hardly anyone uses it here. Xiaomi has oversold themselves this time.

Wireless is a Superhit, one thing i miss moving to 7t pro from S9+, I had a wireless charger at home, office and car, super convenient. I might switch to one plus 8t pro mclaren edition later in the year.

But yes xiaomi has oversold themselves, hell everyone has been overselling them selves off late :doh:

I would not spend 50k on Xiaomi, no f**king way. If I need to spend that much money on a mobile, wtf will I not go for a Samsung or even one plus? ( even though I do feel 35k+ for one plus is also punching above its weight)

 

Xiaomi will always be associated with a budget phone, atleast thats how its positioned in India.

I personally hate their os and their ad bullshit. Also, the privacy concerns are always there.

I didn't know where to put it. So putting in here.

If people buy this apple product, then I can guarantee the world will end before 2020 ends!!!! WTF did I even just watch!??!!
 

 

Linus had a really good video on this. His argument is Apple dont make this to sell and make profits, they know most people (even Apple crowd) wont buy them. Its just there to get them press. Its cheap to make (as in R&D costs are very low) and it does what it is supposed to. What it is supposed to is to make people talk about Apple.  

 

It more than pays for itself simply by the volume of press and clicks and youtube videos and reddit posts etc it generates.

Marques said the same thing. I think they are right. It is the only logical explanation I could think of and I believe they are so far quite successful in that!

Guys which one is better when it comes to camera; one plus 8 pro or iphone 11? 

 

User- sister (not a gamer but loves to take pics + social media stuff and hate hanging/lag kinda bs)

I haven't used any but in camera reviews one plus 8 is being compared to iPhone 11 and one plus 8 pro is being compared to iPhone 11 pro, and it has pretty much traded blows. 

 

If she is not tied to ios ecosystem I will advise one pus 8 pro purely on videos seen on the net for camera. Otherwise stand alone also one plus 8 pro seems like a brilliant phone.

Check some you tube comparisons. Something like this.

The iPhone will easily be better if the primary focuses are social media + camera. It might lack a zoom camera but it generally has better photos than the oneplus (in terms of reliability and repeatability) and it being smaller might help.

Apart from that, all social media apps are much better on iOS and the difference is not even close, especially on apps like Snapchat and Instagram.  

  

Even i shifted my mother from a oneplus to an iphone a few years ago and she has been much happier.

Watch this video guys. Apparently, One Plus 8 pro can see through objects and it even sees through
a particular color of clothing! He explains it happened before and they had to take down camera system.

Although, I know there will be a controversy with this. But I think this is a dope tech. Maybe just remove a bit with clothing specifically to not get into trouble, but they should keep with other aspects like see the IR rays of devices! That last part was crazy!
