I am using high-end touchscreen phones since 2004 started with Sony Ericsson P900, world’s second touch screen phone in the history. From that time, I have a habit of studying a lot of technical specifications and performance factors while purchasing a smartphone for my personal needs.
There is a very limited set of phones which impressed me with their performance. “One plus One” is among one of them. When it announced two years back, I tried very hard to get “One Plus One” invitation.
I posted in various online forums to grab the invitation to purchase One plus One. But I had no luck, at last, I bought the One Plus One invitation for Rs. 1500 on Ebay. That was the old story.
Last year One plus released its successor One Plus 2. At that point of time, I had no particular interest on One plus 2. Not only me, most of the mobile lovers who waited for One Plus One earlier, didn’t show any interest on One Plus 2.
So within three months of its arrival, One Plus lifted the invite system for One plus two and placed it in the open sale. The move itself indicates the marketing failure of One +2.
Now One plus is planning to release One Plus 3 in coming weeks. But keeping the bitter experiences it faced with One +2; the mobile manufacturing company is planning to release it in the open sale. It sounds good for those who are waiting for the One +3 arrival.
On the specification front, One Plus 3 has huge list on-board. But the mobile market changed a lot if compared with the situations persists when One Plus One launched. There are a lot of mobile manufacturers who are aggressively trying to grab the market time to time with powerful configurations for budget prices. So we can’t predict how far One Plus 3 will succeed in the race. Time will reveal the success of One +3 in the existing mobile market.
