OnePlus needs to act more like Samsung

OnePlus needs to act more like Samsung

I should clarify right from the off: the OnePlus Nord CE is not a bad phone. Far from it, in fact — it’s the best Nord phone since the original, especially after the other budget offerings came with too many compromises to be worth recommending in the face of stiff competition. The Nord CE is a solid performer in most areas.

However, as good as it is, it simply serves as further evidence that the OnePlus we used to treasure has veered so far from its original mission that it’s no longer recognizable. Recent news that the company is further integrating with Oppo isn’t at all surprising, but it’s been true for a while now that the flagship killing, "Never Settle" attitude is no longer at the heart of what OnePlus is all about.

OnePlus has released plenty of phones over the years, but one product it has never tried to revolutionize (yet) is the smartwatch.

We now know that it's coming — and we won't have long to wait.

OnePlus teases cheaper Android TV models

OnePlus teases cheaper Android TV models

OnePlus ventured into the TV space late last year with a pair of sets offering some fancy features like a retractable soundbar and an Apple TV-esque remote control. But their sales didn’t quite pick up in India, mainly due to their high-end pricing, a space where brands like Samsung and LG have maintained a good hold. A recent tweet from the OnePlus CEO indicates that the company has taken note of that, and we could get to see some cheaper OnePlus TVs pretty soon.
