Both the mobiles look amazing and have super functionalities. But, OnePlus is facing criticism over the price.

There is an ongoing debate in the market that OnePlus might not be the flagship killer anymore with these prices. But, this is too soon to be commenting on that. We must wait and watch how the devices perform over time. Only after the user reviews come, we can decide whether these devices are worth the high price.
