Your tech friend Comment:
This was my first OnePlus launch event coverage because I’ve never really fitted into the OnePlus’s target segment. It was nice to have a host who masters English completely, unlike the Samsung and Huawei CEO’s. Like those presentations, OnePlus also compared their phones with Apple’s iPhones all of the time. Apparently OnePlus has a 5.5 M community that they claim to listen to – in regards to developing their Oxygen OS. This means some tweaking according to customer feedback – great! OnePlus 8 pro is the best flagship right now according to Dave 2D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lojuls2PmYs
– If OnePlus wants it, then Your tech friend will test all the phones, and do camera tests for my series “Vloggers delight”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fYCgiMT7vc&
