Recently, OnePlus was on a roll. The OnePlus 5T is easily the best phone the company has ever made, and just before CES 2018, OnePlus released a rather attractive white colour variant for its latest mid-range phone. However, things got derailed last week when OnePlus customers started reporting they were seeing unknown transactions hit their credit cards after making a purchase on OnePlus.net.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The price of high-end smartphones has gotten out of control. The iPhone X starts at $1579, while Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 retails at $1499, and as much as I like nice things, ponying up that much for a phone is kind of ridiculous. Do we really need a notch that lets you turn your face into an animated pile of poop, or a stylus that won't make your shitty stick figures look any better? But don't fret, because it's still possible to get a very good phone for a decent price.

As the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X push phone prices higher than they have ever been before, the line between flagship and midrange phones have become so blurry that those terms don't mean much anymore. But now, OnePlus is back with an upgraded version of the OnePlus 5, and it might help us rebalance this equation.

In an age where the humble 3.5mm aux jack is fast disappearing from many of the most expensive and premium phones, OnePlus is taking a stand. The next phone that the company is teasing, the OnePlus 5T, will have a headphone jack -- at least for the time being.
