      Yes, it is better to make cheap knock-offs like thousands of other companys already to in China!

      OnePlus do have the backing and manufacturing capabilities of the 2nd most profitable Chinese smartphone maker, so I think they can do well.

        500 bucks for a flagship phone is hardly premium. It’s not that easy to find a brand new Samsung, HTC, or Sony phone with better than Snapdragon 800 chipset for less than 500.
