All these Nords seem like bad value propositions after the original. One update is especially laughable when the next one comes out in a few months.
anonymous, 2 hours agoOnePlus never forgot why it was made. OnePlus is a business that sells phones. I believe…moreNever be loyal to any brand. Pledge allegiance only to the “hotness” of the product. As Flossie Career often says. A YouTuber on TechAltar said in a great clip several years ago that brands like OnePlus would eventually “cheat” their original fan baobabs

TheLastOracle, 3 hours agoOnePlus is getting worse day by day. First getting the celebs on board, then increasing the promotion of the product… moreThey were created as a spinoff of Oppo to target overseas markets. Now that they are more established they are targeting different segments of the market. All brands are equal in the end and their ultimate goal is to make money. Unfortunately, all major brands are now using celebrities to endorse and market their products, resulting in higher prices for consumers.
7 hours agoOh Really, Xiaomi Gives 2 Android Updates to Its Sub 200€ Phones? What I remember, my… moreIt’s funny how you picked out such low cost phones to prove your point. At the price point at which the N200 is being sold now, Xiaomi offers a 2-year Android upgrade. Again, price point. Redmi Note 8 is much cheaper than N200 but now has Android 11 in China, Global will follow it in future. The Redmi Note 7 is far less of a price point. Compare the N200 with the Redmi Note 8 Pro, at least now with Android 9 with Android 11 and even still priced much lower than the N200, the price point of the N200 coincides with:
Poco X3/X3 NFC and X3 Pro
Redmi Note 10 Pro (Base Variant)
These phones are sure to get 2 Android upgrades.
So no more support only on Android 12 and onwards. GG OneOppo. You are becoming the standard boring brand out there.

OnePlus is a business that sells phones. I believe it is all within their plan. Sell affordable flagship killers with low profit, increase the number of loyal customers and make your brand famous among dozens of Android brands, after that, they can start raising their prices and removing features so that they get more profit, and they Know that people will still buy these phones because of their loyal customers.
so that people buy oneplus nord n200 pro in future,good strategy samsung..important.oneplus..
OnePlus is getting worse day by day. First getting celebs on board, then raising the price of the product, and then endorsement for their products became a joke.
Looks like OnePlus doesn’t remember why it was made.
Airlan, 7 hours agoPersonally don’t think it makes much difference. Haven’t actually seen any signs… moreSadly, this only works in theory. best example? Apple. Three models every year, with minimal hardware differences, and even then they can’t make the OS work perfectly from the first moment. And sometimes updates make it worse.

Pure planned obsolescence right here.
No wonder OnePlus is part of those 4 smartphone brands that I hate for their anti-consumer behavior, and they are constantly disappointed with new things like this.
What was worse was that he pretended to care about his community, so that he could get enough money to do things like this…
Why OnePlus is doing this midrange thing is beyond me.
Since it pertains to a carrier, I’m assuming they’ve reached some agreements about it. But it makes sense that in the future, once ColorOS becomes a single user interface, Oppo will decide how many updates the OnePlus phone will get. How good or would it be to update the Oppo software is the question.
And there are cheap phones with low-end specifications, yet they hold at least 2 years of major OS updates, which means that, frankly, an avoidable disappointment.
OnePlus seems to be in a race to the bottom
I will have 3 years of security patches and no new androids except 1 android and just 1 year of patches.
