OnePlus’ banners on Amazon read, “Everything you could ask for”. Making fun of the same, Poco tweeted, “not your N-ordinary phone.” An image follows these lines, that says, ” Poco F3 GT Pretty and a lot lot more. Coming soon.” The image had the words “much everything you could ask for” struck. These are the same words that are also part of OnePlus Nord 2’s tagline.

Recently, Poco also took a dig at OnePlus over the CPU throttling controversy that it faced. “We can’t lie, our battery just won’t die! That’s what makes the 5065 mAh battery one of the brightest stars shining in the #POCOF3GT. All for a powerful performance while consuming lesser power!” said Poco in a tweet.

Few weeks back, a report claimed that OnePlus has been quietly throttling certain apps on its OnePlus 9 series smartphones to improve battery life and better heat management. The company tweaked the performance of many popular apps to give devices enough power. OnePlus too later accepted the same in a statement.
The company has now confirmed that this throttling also affects the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus Nord 2, phones but users will soon have the option to disable it.
