HD or 720p is more than enough even for 5.5 inch panels I say.
To the qhd fans: what for do you need that resolution? It does not make any sense. Only drains battery quicker
QHD is bullshit. i saw the sony z5 and it was rubbish, only movie clips shoot in 4k is awesome, convert to FHD was terrible. i saw pixel.. and a lot of pixels.. no FHD is the best for now!

Let's see whether OnePlus has learned their lesson from OP 2.
Personally I'd like high capacity battery (4000mAh) with fast charging, 128gb storage (or at least 64gb+sd card).
Last but not the least, OP needs a much improved OS (otherwise users will still have to turn to other ROMs)
Make opo 3 plus with 6.0" - 6.4" screen + 4000mah + same specs as opo 3. I will buy it over Hauwei mate 8 or any others 6.0" chinese phones. Custom ROM support is the main reason.
igrusu93, 09 Dec 2015i would like at least 6000 mAH :)I am sure u r kidding but nonetheless..... u want a good balance between thickness/weight and battery life..... 4000 mAH lasts over 24 hours even with very heavy use..... and that seems sufficient to me.
Symbian Rocks, 09 Dec 2015I think it's not possible at $399. No one want to lose opportunities for extra profit.It will be possible by the time OnePlus 3 comes out. Prices go down rapidly for mobile components.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2015G3 - looks nothing special compared to my N5 (and if you compare it to N7 2013 it doesn't look... moreMost of the arguments (except point 3) you have can also be used to say that moving from 720p to 1080p is worthless.....
Now let me address all of them one by one
- Adreno 530 will have enough power to run most games at QHD @60fps. Even if you get more frames it's of no use since screen refresh rate is 60Hz only. Also, most games are rendered on 1080p on Android and then upscaled to higher resolutions, so performance won't be affected AT ALL.
-Of course it will cost more.... but that's what we are buying a flagship for..... to get the best.....
-Right now 4k video is not mainstream..... but it will be in a year or two..... when you buy a flagship you think about future-proofing too...... and as you already admitted Photos look better.
-Battery results of Samsung flagships (Note 4/ Note 5) prove that QHD doesn't have that much impact on Battery life. As the display technology matures further, the difference will only get smaller.

no need of carrying power banks

Have never felt 1080p to be lacking on my Nexus. 5.5" would allow me to hold my phone even further my face. I will take the extra battery life and performance every day.

High pixel density and the appropriate color calibration can make a lower resolution display (ie 1080p) look near identical and in some cases even better than the 2k one.
Not to mention I gave you 4 objective reasons why 2k is worthless on a MOBILE device.
If you want to argue - provide something better than "I think it looks better".
