Price and Availability details in Nepal
The price of Oneplus 8 in Nepal is Rs.93,000 (12/256GB). The phone was recently launched and is available in iHub.
One plus phones are known to be flagship killers. However, the company also makes flagship phones. And the 8 and 8 Pro are flagship phones. The company has tried to reduce its cost by reducing some features on the phone.
Seeing the reviews, the phone somewhat failed to reach the expectations.
Yes, the phone has strong performance and the display provides a beautiful colour range and a wonderful viewing experience. The battery life is also impressive with a quick charger. The fingerprint sensor is positioned in a reachable place on the screen and words fast.
So, what is the problem? One plus is known to make people go “WOW”, but there isn’t anything new in this phone. It has nothing special to it. Another issue that the phone has according to the reviews is the camera. The quality of the camera doesn’t match with the price and the flagship category. Yes, it works decent but having a decent camera in that price point isn’t enough.
