You can now try the OnePlus 11 for free for 100 days — here’s how

Buying a new smartphone is always a gamble in terms of customer satisfaction — mainly because they cost so much and can be so different from the device that the buyer is currently using.

To combat this, OnePlus is giving customers the chance to try the OnePlus 11 entirely risk-free. Starting today, the company is running the “100 Days No Regret” program, which allows OnePlus 11 buyers to use the new flagship for up to 100 days and still be eligible to return it for a full refund.

Before current unhappy OnePlus 11 owners get too excited about getting their money back in full, it’s important to point out that the promotion only covers smartphones purchased from today, March 20, through Sunday, April 30. This means that any OnePlus 11s bought immediately following the phone’s launch are ineligible for full refunds. If you buy the phone after April 30, it’ll still be eligible for the standard 15-day refund period.

Luckily, the OnePlus 11 is a solid phone, as pointed out in our review, so the list of current OnePlus 11 owners who are looking to get their money back should be pretty short. But it’s still nice to see a major company like OnePlus providing such a generous offer. With a promotion like this, prospective buyers are able to truly see if they like the OnePlus 11 before making the final commitment to spend their money on it, allowing them to be completely comfortable spending upwards of $700 on the device.

Those looking to get in on the promotion need to understand, however, that they’ll have to register their purchase within 15 days of the phone’s delivery if they want to be eligible to get their money back. As long as their purchase is registered and their OnePlus 11 unit is returned undamaged within the 100-day window, buyers will be able to be refunded in full. The 100 Days No Regret promotion includes both the 8GB RAM/128GB storage and the 16GB RAM/256GB storage variants of the OnePlus 11 in both Titan Black and Eternal Green.

How I learned to love the OnePlus 11’s controversial software
The OnePlus 11's screen.

When I picked up the OnePlus 10 Pro, I missed the old OxygenOS immediately. Gone was the fluid and feature-light software that made OnePlus phones such a great experience, replaced by the heavy, slower, and more annoying ColorOS-inspired software few liked as much. I liked it even less on the OnePlus 10T, and I wasn’t the only one.

I really like the OnePlus 11, but I wasn’t expecting to like OxygenOS 13 much. My early impression of ColorOS 13 was good, but I didn’t trust the newly Oppo-ified OnePlus enough to think it would carry over. But after using, and loving, the OnePlus 11 for several weeks, I no longer feel any animosity towards OxygenOS. Have I simply become used to it, or has the software actually got better?
What’s the problem with OxygenOS?

This is the cheaper (and cooler) OnePlus 11 you wish you could buy
OnePlus 11R, a cheaper OnePlus 11, at the Cloud 11 event in India.

The OnePlus 11, in many ways, attempts to do over the shortcomings of the previous OnePlus flagships. While the OnePlus 11 feels closer to OnePlus's once-revered form, the company's strategy to launch flagship killers in niche markets such as India and China still keeps older OnePlus users attracted to the brand, despite its evolution in recent years. The OnePlus 11R — a $200 cheaper OnePlus 11 — is the latest phone that fits the picture that OnePlus purists long for.

OnePlus has spent the last few years facing the odds. By pivoting into the budget segment with its Nord series, OnePlus has been able to sell more units but at the cost of losing its grip on the "never settle" identity. OnePlus, which once enjoyed a cultdom for its clean software and hardware portraying parsimony, has attempted to keep fans in price-conscious markets (especially in Asia) with its R suffix series.

Why now is the perfect time for the OnePlus Pad
The OnePlus Pad tablet with Stylo stylus and keyboard cover.

OnePlus, the popular smartphone brand, is dipping its toes into the tablet market with the launch of the all-new, gorgeously designed OnePlus Pad. The move comes at a time when Google is making significant changes to Android to improve the tablet experience for users (plus laptops and foldables, too!).

With the launch of the OnePlus Pad, OnePlus is poised to benefit from these changes, while also feeding into its own broader ecosystem of devices and services. At the same time, the launch coincides with slowing growth in the tablet market, making it a risky move for the company -- but one which could pay off well.
