Look at memory amount, memory speed and storage speed if you want a speedier phone...
OnePlus 3T has better audio quality from speakers than OnePlus 3, but much worse audio quality from headphones.
RoverX, 10 Dec 2016Okay, official support and custom ROMs are two very different things! Samsung dropped support ... moreTells me their hardware is so good and popular that other people are willing to support it.
OP was born from this kind of movement (with their Cyanogen tie). Fast-forward to present day, OP3 is a great and well support phone (pretty much all 3rd-party ROMs are available).
What about the OP3T?
It's still early days, I know, but if this trend of releasing a new model every 6mo (along with a price-hike) continues, I'm not so sure things will still work as we are used to... and I must say, for a variant of an already very well supported phone, I am kind of surprised by the (lack) of early builds of ROMs like Cyanogenmod (even if things like front camera don't work, or stability/performance isn't anything close to ideal).
Let's face it, things could change (and I hope they do), but the early signs aren't great.

Deepak, 09 Dec 2016What the Heck is this? I waited for 3T for so long just to know that rear camera has deteriora... moreExactly dude! I was waiting for 3T and now I see these camera samples. Still or video, the noise is so horrible. Rest everything is fine, I don't know what to do? I am trying to find more 1+3 vs. 1+3T camera comparison but not finding it anywhere. There are a couple of videos and there it looks good. I am totally confused.
The selfie camera is impressive ! I can see that dude's nosehair in detail ;). Great review GSM Arena
charging the battery to the stated voltage gets more ma/h but not so good for the battery. The samsung s7 (I know it sound ironic) is more carefull and charges the battery to less than capacity,
....the battery maximum charging voltage is only 4.35 V, not the rated 4.4 V. This means that the actual battery maximum capacity is nearly 3,180 mAh but Samsung is making only 3,000 mAh available to the user. This further raises the likelihood that Samsung opted to lower the voltage (and sacrifice available charge capacity) in order to increase the batteryÂ’s longevity (cycle life) or decrease the battery swelling at the high charge rate of 1C, or perhaps both....
Hmm, larger battery capacity without size and weight gain......... Simply upped the voltage? Well usually this has an affect on battery life cycles? Charge to a higher voltage stresses the battery. if a 4.4 volt battery is only charged to 4.2 volts it will charge to a lower capacity but likely have more charge cycles. No thanks

Samsung dropped support for its 2010 flagship, the Galaxy S2 ages ago (On Jellybean 4.1)... The device is still trotting along well, thanks to the custom ROM development teams... What does it tell you about Samsung, though? Get my point?
"OnePlus has always been one of those companies on the mobile scene, you just can't help but root for. "
I'd root for it in a flash! (See what I did here)?

This is pure horror from OnePlus 3T. First they buffed up Front Camera for no reason and now the main rear camera is making it more worse. OnePlus 3T is going downwards with negative upgrades. I hope OnePlus CEO give damn about such pathetic upgrades and corrects the mistakes for OnePlus 4 or 5.
Looserke, 08 Dec 2016The low lights photos shotted without HQ mode? I think the Oneplus3 low light photos was shott... moreJust to clear things up, yes, the original OnePlus 3 low-light sample was shot with HQ on. This was due to the fact that from the many samples we took, that one just looked best. We did the same for the OnePlus 3T, as in, we shot a lot of samples, some in HQ. Again, the final shot chosen was the one that looked best in our opinion. In this case, it was one with HQ disabled. The fact of the matter is, the two phones definitely have some difference in processing, regardless of HQ mode. In low-light scenarios, in particular, the OnePlus 3T exhibits what we would call more "mature" processing. The company has apparently decided to dial back on some post-processing and hence the shots have arguably more noise now. On the flip side, however, we do tend to see more detail in the OnePlus 3T samples - mostly finer things, like textures left intact. It comes down to personal preference and as far as our two cents go, the original OnePlus 3 does produce more appealing, albeit more processed low-light stills.
Jetsons, 09 Dec 2016I really want to buy this phone but now reluctant from watching Camera sample and comparisons ... moredont worry after few software updates it will get better.all phones specially chinese phones are bad at 1st but they improve after few updates and this is one of the best phones you can get for the money so dont get dissappointed
Birkof, 08 Dec 2016It has 3,5 mm jack of course!The Lepro 3 has a headphone jack? I don't think so
What the Heck is this? I waited for 3T for so long just to know that rear camera has deteriorated to this extent????
ithehappy, 08 Dec 2016Yep, the samples are terribly over processed indeed. I guess OP took the S7's or Pixel's over ... moreI really want to buy this phone but now reluctant from watching Camera sample and comparisons shown here, its really disappointing to see over sharpened grainy images of OnePlus 3T camera, didn't expected they would ruin something good they had which they had to improve in reality.
I trust GSMArena more than any other tech forum either AnandTech or etc because they have genuine comparison tool for same picture same lights.
What do you suggest, shall I wait for Price drop for Samsung S7 as MWC 2017 is approaching this FEB and I am sure Samsung would announce S8 early for sure to compensate for Nuke7. The only reason to go for S7 is that, I admire its camera as its best of all the exiting phones, for rest I am ready for the compromise.
A $100 price drop for S7 would do the trick to evaporate OnePlus3T customers.
Anybody got information about the Basemark X test in the review above.
the awarded Basemark X 1.1 where there are two test (medium and High setting) is useally one of the best Android tools to classify GPU-graphic / performance. (pretty thorough)
But the scores pasted, what are they, is it the normal medium setting, or is it the high setting.
36958 aint impressiv, partically if its the standard test, since an 200US device like the dark grey-X822 I took the plunge on' gets +43k
same with Qualcomms own benchapp Vellamo, 6200 in Chrome & WebUI.
so bang for buck on pure power, still king of the hill, hence a 200US price X822..(but 2k on 5.7inch way to small, still urge for my primary P8max's 6.8inch and landscape optimaation for thumb management as my prefered mobile atm ..(really cherise the big screen)

From my experience, owned android from obscure brand to famous one (except Samsung), the browsing time minus two hours is very2 close to what we call as "Screen-On Time".
Because Browsing is more multi-core task than gaming. I dont talk about 'load' on processor. And many games now uses GPU optimization as well.
