A few days ago we reported that it was possible that the new “game changing” product that OnePlus was planning on launching could be a drone. As it turns out it looks like all the speculation was right on the money as the company has officially announced the OnePlus DR-1 drone, although we’re not sure what exactly it is about the DR-1 that makes it a game changer per se.

The OnePlus DR-1 drone is tiny we’ll give it that. It spans about 70mm wide which should have no problems fitting in your palm or slipping into a bag, or maybe a pocket if you have extra baggy pants. However what’s disappointing is that a controller will still be needed to control the drone versus using a smartphone app so it’s not as portable as we thought.

In fact Gartner’s research director Brian Blau states that smartphone users are just as excited about new apps as they were before, but instead of simply downloading and using any new app that pops up, users must now be convinced of its value.

apple-pay-002One of the reasons why Apple Pay has gotten the amount of attention it did is because not only is it an Apple product which generates a ton of interest on its own, but also its ease of use in which users just need to tap their phone against the payment terminal, hold their finger against Touch ID to verify themselves, and the process is done!

However despite the seemingly ease of use, it seems that it has been running into issues. According to research conducted by Phoenix Marketing International, they found that 66% of Apple Pay users encountered some kind of problem while using the service to pay for their goods. This was either due to the terminals not working, transactions taking too long to process, and the general inability of cashiers to help customers who needed assistance with Apple Pay.
