OnePlus boasts that 300 people use its 7-year-old phone. This is a disaster, nothing to be proud of

One of the Chinese reviewers praised on Weibo that he is still using the OnePlus 5 from 2017. His video was reacted by the boss of & hairsp; – & hairsp; Pete Lau – addingthat OnePlus One from 2014 is still used by over 300 people.

According to him, the fact that the 7-year-old phone is used by 300 people is proof of “OnePlus quality, reliability and the timeless strength of a good product”.

This is something to be proud of? After all, this means that 99.98 percent. copies ended up in the garbage can or in a drawer

In 2015, OnePlus revealedthat sold nearly 1.5 million units the One model. 300 is only 0.02 percent. of them. And this is supposed to be a good result?

I know that most users replace their smartphones after 2–4 years, but that doesn’t mean the old models have to end their life. After all, many people only need a telephone for making calls and a given model meets their requirements as long as it works.

2014 is not really medieval. Lots of uses much older devices, why not? Until recently, my grandmother used the Samsung Wave 533 & hairsp; – & hairsp; a budget phone with badaOS that hit the market in 2010. And she would continue to use it if the smartphone did not give up the ghost.

There is also a lot of ways to use old phones in practice. My dad uses old smartphones around the house to conveniently control the internet radio.

Is OnePlus One so old?

And let’s add that OnePlus One had a powerful specification on the day of its release, so it should age much more slowly than most smartphones from this period. However, if 99.98 percent. copies are unusable or wasted in a drawer, something went very, very wrong.

And yet so much is said about ecology

The European Union is pushing through regulations to translate into extending the life of consumer electronics. Orange Polska wantthat by 2025 10 percent. the smartphones sold by the network were refurbished models.

Then the head of OnePlus appears, all in red and white, claiming that 0.02 percent. 7-year-old smartphones in use are a good result. In what world?
