galaxys6owner, 25 Jan 2017Oneplus forums are full of user crying for fixes,Especially notification shade lags
I went th... moreThere cld be issues but OP updates their phones with bug fixes quite frequently and I am pretty sure in the current build they are mostly fixed.
Another reason is cos OP devices have always catered to the power users. These r mostly techies or informed buyers who r people who check tech forums like u and me. As such they report bugs and issues more frequently.
S7 on the other hand is a default phone. Anyone who goes to a shop and asks for high end android/Samsung is served with the S7. And that means most of the users r not well informed abt the software and hardware parts and are much less likely to report the bugs in a tech forum. Such people either live with it or just return the device.
So just cos u saw a lot of complaints about OP software in the forums does not automatically mean that all OP devices are severely bugged
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2017Snapdragon outperforms Exynos in everything, except multi core performance only, and that's ju... moreIf you're on iPhone. Multicore performance is much more important in android. That's a two year old article: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9518/the-mobile-cpu-corecount-debate/18
Since then Multicore actually matters even more. Stop with the Apple propaganda. In all real life test Snapdragon S7 was destroyed by the exynos version.
It's a mistake that S8 would only use a snapdragon chip, they are borderline midrange and at least a generation behind apple's in cpu performance (the one that matters). People should not buy those chips.

Samsung IT & Mobile Communications (IM) division had consolidated revenue $18.8 Billion and $2 Billion in operating net profit for the last quarter of 2016.
Just to clarify that. Thats Samsung IT & Mobile division net profit of US$2 Billion for the last 3 months of 2016.
What you call "foul monopoly" by Samsung is actually good business planning and 100% legal and ethical worldwide. One reason why Samsung is a leader in technology and sales.
Sony is such a small player now in mobile phones, nobody really cares what they attempt. Actually Sony is out of the top 10 in phones now. Slipping more and more behind the others due to lack of innovation and overpricing.

As for Sony mobile its doing good, XZ selling good as reported, with positive revenue....
You fanboys have daydreams of its closure for years now but its not helping is it now?
While Samsung mobile lost almost half of sales income last year, earned 18 bill as reported, lost 17 bill in revenue, will sell less and loose more this year....
All well as deserved for their buissness politics.
Tann Hauser, 24 Jan 2017Agreed.
Thats why I buy Sony.

Sony had 4 product recalls of exploding batterys between 2006-2014.
In 2006, alone, Sony recalled 9.6 million laptops after problems with exploding batteries.
Hewlett-Packard, Toshiba and Dell notebooks have recalled over 4.1 million Sony batterys. Plus numerous lawsuits againt Sony.

Forget about Sony as there is a 50/50 chance that Sony mobile division will be shut down in 2017. Its being using the same design with basically a new model with a better cpu for years now.
Xz8441, 25 Jan 2017Mediatek? lol are you sure that's a wise decision? No matter how bad/understocked SD chips ... moreNothing is imposible bro in business, flagship is magnet for fans who have money. And Mediatek is not that bad, just they are new and not much experience but I support for good competition so the costumer have more variant to choice. I have try few mediatek powered divice as costumer tester, battery consumption is one of the case you will have and to be highlight red! Other think is as good as you pay for cheap device. If you have try one, you will know, if you just read it on screen, that's up to you how you judge mediatek. But tbh I prefer qualcomm for now and use 3 flagship with qualcomm power.
