OnePlus Product Manager justifies OnePlus 5 design

OnePlus is ready for the launch of the new flagship device, OnePlus 5. They have given the official date of 20th june for the launch globally, and 22nd for Indian launch. Well, the talk is about the design of the OnePlus 5 which leaked couple of times. Some users are complaining about the device and even started to criticise the device.


There’s a buzz about its design on Twitter and few other social media sites. In a response to the backlash, today, OnePlus Product Manager responded about the device on Zhihu. He justified the design by saying that you can’t compare or evaluate product’s design by seeing it on 2D image. You need to feel the design which is possible only by touching the device in real.

He further added that people even criticised the OnePlus 3T design also, but later after touching it physically, they praised the design.

The design started receiving the criticism after few images got leaked via TENAA.

He stated that the camera design which is protruding from the overall body of the device is better than the inbody camera. He clarified the fact by giving example of iPhone 7 which have similar camera bump.

In the end he said, users will not feel bad having the device, they will fall in love with its build and quality. Also, he urged to make judgement only after, feeling the build quality of the device.

  1. Oneplus might you have forgotton that the feel of design only happen when it available to local markets or more sites in a country. Not everyone reached at a single place in a country side where it launched and you the company only focusing on the online sale stragegy. Remember that apple handset reached everywhere in local markets and in showrooms whenever it launched . Even oppo the parent company of yours placed their mobile near to consumers and fans range that can easily visit to market to take the feel of handset. Your innovation for making the camera bump or design have nothing issue as if a requirement for better’ image quality then this is necessity . Overall your slim design catch lot of focus that was a great invention from your end but you make a little bit mistakes while making the front design as it not much attractive from front pannel as like samsung s8. Not its a time that everyone wants and expect a lot from you about the oneplus design that looks different from others smartphones and the design matter most as all know that you the company giving lot of focus to your design and if still it not wins the heart of your fans then your hard working have no meaning.
