OnePlus threaten to increase prices as a result of #Brexit

Errr… so, we’ve been sent quite a few “announcements” from companies following the EU referendum last week. The information we’re getting is sometimes contradictory, sometimes wrong and sometimes biased. Pretty much, you might say, like the whole campaign has been to date on both sides. Anyhoo, we’ve

EXCLUSIVE – Yes, yes. The OnePlus 3 IS coming to O2

So, while I was mourning the loss of our Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (it’s only lasted a week and there seems to be some issue with the graphics driver), I received another email. It was from our mysterious, but trusted, source. The same one who mentioned that
