OnePlus smartphone was launched in 2013 in the high-end segment. Since its launch, it is the most-talked-about flagship phone. And, those using OnePlus cannot deny that it is worth the hype.
With new features and advanced technologies incorporated in the design of the phone, the price is pushed on to the higher side with every new launch.
