I guess we can understand why the OnePlus 7 is so expensive. Back in 2013, HTC hired Robert Downey Jr. as their ambassador, and has reportedly paid a whopping 306 million TWD (~RM47.94 million). That was back in 2013, before all the hype for the Avengers movies. OnePlus should be paying even more now.

The Iron Man’s popularity has been on the rise with a slew of successful movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the most recent one being Avengers: Endgame which is a colossal box office hit. To get Robert Downey Jr. as ambassador would be an amazing boost to OnePlus brand visibility, but it sure isn’t what OnePlus is known for.

OnePlus is popular among tech enthusiasts for the bang-for-buck that earlier OnePlus devices offered. With that said, OnePlus devices has grown increasingly expensive recently. We are also pretty sure their fans do not appreciate OnePlus spending money on a famous ambassador, instead of waterproofing the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.

It’s worth mentioning that Robert Downey Jr. did not help HTC buck their gradual decline, so good luck OnePlus!
