Paul60, 29 Jan 2017Once again, the Google Pixel XL is shown to be overpriced.I know, right? I see all of these big name android lovers raving about it, and it doesn't make any sense to me. While yeah, pure android and consistent updates are great, you can effectively get the exact same experience for $400/500 less with the 3T. And the Pixel lacks a lot of the premium stuff like waterproofing you'd expect on a $700-800 dollar phone.
It's like when Google decided to go after Apple with these phones, they also emulated their habit of selling over-priced, feature-light hardware.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017Z5 to OP3T mover here. The 3T is as good as any phone available anywhere. I disagree with your... moreThanks for the disagreement (though really required?) but good to know the device works for you well. If that means it is flawless for everyone and trumps the flagships, good luck with that!
mir, 27 Jan 2017What are you talking about? I like the S7, but the 3T absolutely stomps it at everyday usage a... moreI meant 2 things:
1) No innovation in battery so far by any manufacturer apart from fast charging tech
2) OP3T software wise is yet to match the flagships. With every update, I expect it to only get better :)
Hoffmann, 27 Jan 2017Excuse me? Crappy phones?! http://prnt.sc/e1qflu
kinda cool but I probably won't need such speed.
All I to know if One Plus will be able to release a phone based on S835 this year. I don't like the higher price of the Samsung S8
This is classic OnePlus hype. They focus on one great, though perhaps not the most important, feature, to create the false impression that their "flagship killer" is better than a more expensive true flagship. It's hype by distraction. Try to avoid people making truly fair overall comparisons of the two phones (a bit like how our new horrible president uses Twitter controversies to distract from the real and radical policy changes he's persuing).
Fine. the OnePlus 3T charges better.
The Pixel on the other hand gets the latest Android updates, including security updates, and will continue to get them for three years. OnePlus has been spotty and inconsistent on this. Security if far more important than charging in the limited use case where you are also navigating.
The Pixel is also fully compatible with T-Moblie's wifi calling and VoLTE (OnePlus supports VoLTE unofficially-- the certification costs money--which has resulted in the feature working, not working after updates, maybe working again, people downgrading their system--introducing security holes--to get VoLTE, etc.). I have long said, what is the point of a new phone that is not even fully compatible with your carrier's network?
The OnePlus 3T is a great phone. But there are reasons why it's cheaper than the Pixel, iPhone, Galaxy 7, and other true flagships. I just get tired of OnePlus' hype. Sometimes they seem to care more about hype and misleading people than just focusing on their phones.
Boom... OP3T who is the boss? =D
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017Sorry but your comment is shit and you are wrongDisplay does not affect charging times
So OnePlus manipulated the test so that the 3T winds. Bad move, this reduces their reputation
Dude, we all know that Google's charging sucks, no need to make MORE VIDEOS on it!!
Claudiu.Lucian, 27 Jan 2017I think universality in the future and we should make a universal USB C PD charge for smartwat... moreOr a better solution would be if the "Dash Charging" Tech/Method became implemented into a revision of the USB-PD spec. As it's clearly superior in Charging capability and may even be beneficial to the battery as there is no heat build-up.
OP3T has 3400mAh battery
Le Pro 3 has 4070mAh battery
30 mins charging
OP3T = 57% = 1938mAh
Le Pro 3 = 46% = 1872mAh
Not bad Le Pro 3, not bad... =D
I think universality in the future and we should make a universal USB C PD charge for smartwatch, phone, tablet and laptop and stop making custom charger like DASH charge or Qualcomm quick charge
yeah, Oneplus 3T charges faster when it's in use because it has a property charging solution with a property DASH cable 3 times thicker than usual and it's cooler when you charge it...in comparison with Pixel XL which has an universal cable and charges slower under use...so it's no winners, it's more about what you want...property DASH cable and cooler charging or universal cable, any USB C 3.1 cable and warmer charge
mir, 27 Jan 2017What are you talking about? I like the S7, but the 3T absolutely stomps it at everyday usage a... moreTotally agree. The OP3T is a revelation. It is not just "good for the price", but "good at any price"
TeamAndroid, 27 Jan 2017couldn't care less... I wonder who actually is buying these crappy phones , so fugly and way o... moreCheapies like me who own some of the most expensive phones available anywhere (try Z5 and 6s). Your opinion on the OP3T seems to stem from ignirance and nkt having direct experience with the phone.
But i am not surprised. I too was apprehensive about buying a Chinese phone.
