Winner and Losers of the week: OnePlus' worthy upgrade, Twitter abuses your data

Winner and Losers of the week: OnePlus' worthy upgrade, Twitter abuses your data

OnePlus has given its standard model a decent upgrade, while Twitter uses security data for advertising. Here are our winners and losers of the week just gone.

Winner of the week: OnePlus

Having a new smartphone generation every six months is perhaps a little annoying. Nevertheless, OnePlus has made a lot of progress this time. The new OnePlus 7T has received so many improvements that it outshines the OnePlus 7T Pro. There is more memory, the 7T now also has a 90 Hz display and users of the normal model can enjoy the same camera configuration as the Pro model.

Although OnePlus has also increased prices in the meantime, the OnePlus 7T is still cheaper than many of its competitors. And you get a lot for your money. As if that wasn't enough, OnePlus has announced that it will also supply the OnePlus 5 (T) and the OnePlus 6 (T) with OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10. So OnePlus continues to think about the buyers of older smartphone generations.

Loser of the week: Twitter

It is well known that our data is a popular currency. It gets stupid when you divulge data because more security is promised and then you find out that the data has been used for other purposes. That's what happened on Twitter. Here, as with many other services, you can set up two-factor authentication. It makes the account more secure.

However, if users have added their telephone number on Twitter for this purpose, it was apparently used for advertising purposes, as were e-mail addresses. Twitter has apologized, but this must not happen. We can't say for sure how many people are affected by this incident," the company says. Twitter obviously doesn't really know what they've done with users' data. After all, the data had only been adjusted using the tailored audiences system, but the data had not been passed on. That would have been even nicer...

Who were your winners and losers of the week? Let us know!

  • Every social media is harvesting data exactly for this purpose. It is not only a shame but. in the end. it makes prices of every good and service go up as getting these data costs money to the companies and using them costs more money. Traditional advertising was far cheaper and a larger variety of products was sold. Now only those able to afford high costs can be part of this game. In the end it is only parasitic companies Like Facebook, Twitter. Instagram or Google taking advantage of this situation without adding any value to anything


  • One plus is getting alittle confusing. But I do like the 7t. The 90hz display, warp charging, macro zooming. And I like the price, 599.00 bucks ain't to shabby!

    Social media is all about abuse masquerading as your bestie. Frenemy media would be more accurate.
