Tell me what's wrong with software support. The device is getting lots of updates. Please don't start saying stuff about bugs because every os has bugs. Your much worse camera beats galaxy s7 in some occasions. Just because it has worse low light performance doesn't mean it's much worse. Worse display? Your QHD screen is a waste of performance and both of the devices have amoled screens. No expandable storage? That's funny. You have 32GB base storage. Before you start saying there is 64GB and bla bla bla. It's 100 more euros for extra 32GB storage. I'd rather have more and fast storage, which I couldn't expand, than 32GB fast storage, but rest super slow. For what do you need more than 64GB of storage? Say whatever, but your gimmicks aren't worth the price. I'd rather buy 2 OnePlus 3 phones and still have some money instead of wasting all of my money on GS7. About buying the phone on ebay. How do you know it's really new? I'm comparing official prices not from some shady resellers. I could only find the phone on ebay for 659.99$ and that's without the import fees. Import fees are around 28% in my country so I'd pay around 850 with shipping fees added too. That price is for a phone which you actually don't know if it was used. You may say that ebay makes everything safe for buyer, but I want to know what I buy and I want to buy from an official reseller.

So it has poor software
Poor software support
Much worse camera
No expandable storage
No Samsung Pay
No gear vr (which isn't comparable to cardboard)
No wireless charging
Worse battery life
Stop acting like the two are equals. If you want to save money then sure, get the op3, but stop acting like one isn't definitively better than the other. I mean, how would even be possible to make the s7 even more better? And the price isn't $500 apart. You can get a new s7 for $500 on eBay, which is only slightly more expensive than the op3 which goes for $400. Or in the UK its £420 vs £330. Yes the op3 is cheaper and its easy to argue that its the better deal here, but stop acting like the s7 is $500 more expensive when it barely costs that.
Waynegywnn, 14 Aug 2016Ugly phone comes with and ugly is and ugly updates. I'm not surprised anyway. agree with you
ouch, I guess somebody is not happy that oneplus3 is selling like hotcakes. I have had mine for a month now. Hands down the best phone I ever had. Also I have experienced zero of the above named issues.
cozxta, 14 Aug 2016You mean all the features except way better battery endurance, AoD, Samsung Pay, Gear VR, bett... moreYou consider these gimmick features worth extra 500$? Except battery endurance, low-light photos and IP68 nothing you mentioned is useful. Let me start with AoD. You can have it on oneplus 3 too, since it has amoled screen, but it's just a gimmicky feature which sucks your battery. About samsung pay... Why are you adding it? It's samsung only feature which isn't used in most of countries, so I consider it a gimmick to attract users too. Don't forget that there is android pay, which OP3 has. Now with Gear VR. It's just an expensive version of google cardboard for which you have to pay over 100$ and 99% of samsung users aren't going to buy this. VR on PCs isn't really good yet, yet you're dreaming about using it on phones. IP68 doesn't mean it's waterproof. It's only resistant to water and it can still can be damaged, which has been the case for many users. It has been added for users who are dumb enough to use a phone near water and not be careful. This feature is not for taking underwater pictures or filming videos. If you submerge your phone in water you lose the warranty. Now the last part is wireless charging. I'd rather have my phone charge up really fast and be able to use it when charging, instead of putting it on some bs, which doesn't even let me use the device properly and wait to charge longer. If you think that these gimmicks are worth over 500$ increase in price compared to op3 then there is something wrong with your head. I thought apple fanbase was cancer, but you are even more cancerous. Oh, I forgot one more thing... low light photos. Who cares if they are better? They are still not on the level where you can use them professionally. When phone cameras reach the point where they can shoot images in the dark without any noise or blur and have full detail then i'll reconsider that statement.
just another reason to just buy something more expensive and with bloatware. bc even with bloatware, they work. im glad i got cancelled the order of this phone.
Ugly phone comes with and ugly is and ugly updates. I'm not surprised anyway.
Jiahaha, i really confused why people dont know about this. Look at oneplus facebook page, many people complaining about it. If you want to know about brand reputation, simply search their fanpage, stupid buyer.
And anyway, dont compare OP3 with SG7. By the price, it has really far gap, of course SG7 win, stupid comparison.
Grey1213, 14 Aug 2016Apple does it too though.Heck, Samsung and LG does it too. Google Nexus comes from rhe heart tough, like a Keyblade.
Lol, I bought it with 3.1.4. Untill now, I am clearef of any problems, maybe only the Ram management issue and battery life could have been better. Even if I get 4-5 hours SoT. I am so afraid to update...
mushiu, 14 Aug 2016its a Chinese company, wadaya expect?Apple does it too though.
I'm on 3.2.4 and I have not encountered any issue.... I think the problem is of poor networks offered in some countries
ahh well we now know how they sell to cheap - same components as Samsung but no engineering the power usage or getting the software to work with the components.... oh well have fun developing your own phone software
Yeah update brings lot of bug fixes this time.
You can install whole update here - https://www.obeygeek.com/how-to-download-install-oxygenos-3-2-4-on-oneplus-3/
I'm on OxygenOS 3.2.4 and never had even one of these problems ... OS runs smooth and is very stable...
