The story is quick: "we saw an iPhone 7s and thought, we can do that!" -- the end.

OP fans need to check prices before making fools of themselves. With the price of 560Eur - OP5 is a flagship and the GS8 is a real flagship killer.
this is stupid, they just copy pasted the iphone design took the internals and display of the 3T and updated the Qualcomm chip and put another camera on it that literally is it

dladz, 03 Aug 2017no mention of the ahem camera (cough cough)
I have the phone and it is superb.
Two gripe... moreSame sentiments with gaming here...
When OP3T was the flagship, it was the only Android phone at that time that was able to play PSP games WITHOUT LAG/STUTTERS.
Have you tried using a USB C to HDMI Adapter?
I used one for OP3T and it was great.

It's not awful, but it's certainly not as good as it could have been a million times better, OIS being the main reason, but the pictures when zoomed in are kind of like an oil painting, hard to explain but it's definitely annoying.
USB to TV Out:
Might sound like i'm being nit picky here but honestly why would they not include a feature which the device is capable of and it already has the parts? What it means for me is that gaming out of a TV is not happening, wireless options do not offer the same response rate as a decent tv out solution, shocking choice.
Everything else for me has been amazing, battery life is incredible (3 days on first charge? wtf)
Speed is second to none, including the finger print (no idea how they made it see you so quick)
Memory and gaming, 8GB of ram although overkill does make a difference in emulators, for example besides the nvidia chipsets, this is the first phone to be able to run windwaker on dolphin (gamecube) at a full consistent 30fps as it was intended (but no tv out :( )
PSP games mostly run perfect too.
All in all, it's a beast, and the problems that you'll have could have been fixed from the off, perhaps it came down to cost with OIS, tv out there are no excuses i'm afraid.
But really... why did you put screen wrong way inside!? It makes me mad, that I cannot use this phone (makes me puke, tested)
He never even commented abt the jelly effect made by his team ... How modest

I am a Samsung user from 6 years. I have seen infinite times people trolling Samsung for same design (even though every company now follows same trend), but this is hilarious.
