XBR, 10 Nov 2017How does that tweet indicate that it's going to be cheaper... it doesn't. Its only a clickbait
It will be the same price as the OnePlus 5, because of no capacitive keys, is a deal breaker.
Well even if S8 is 100 bugs less I wouldn't buy it cause of Samsung Experience.
If no ip67 or 68 is no for me... If 500-570$ I will buy galaxy s8 new 570$ from USA with iris scan, ip68 and beautiful designs.
They're shooting themselves in the foot if it's $500~600, you can get an S8 around that price on swappa/ebay
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2017Forgot Nokia 8,eh? Here India, op5 and Nokia 8 cost the same. Around 500$. In op5 you get 4gb ... moreYeah i forgot about nokia 8. But like you said, each have ther pros and cons. Nokia as 2k Screen but Oneplus is Oled, Nokia has their own design but OP5T will have smaller bezels.
I wanted to buy 1+5 few months ago,but went for Mi6,paid 370euro for it and it is fantastic..1+5 is still 500+ euro,it is excellent phone too,but price is too high.I'll never be a Sammy boy but you can get S8 on eBay for under 500 euro,so I understand everyone who will prefer S8 over 1+5,it is better phone,fact.Way better display,camera,warranty,support..If 1+5 cost the same as Mi6 I'll buy one,will always give my cash to small(er) company rather than big corporations..

Software seems to be a bit buggy too. Nokia build quality? Nah. It has nothing to do with Nokia. And even if it did, the old Nokia made pretty poor decisions, so it died for a reason.

In op5 you get 4gb ram and 64 gb extra storage and in nokia 2k and ip54,ozo, not a design resembling iPhone , 2 years of updates and Nokia's build quality.

LOL there's no way i'm gonna pay even 300 EUR for a phone with no warranty.
Seriously, for the price of a 1+5 128GB, you could have bought two 1+1 and still have money left to go to McDonald’s (or BK) and buy a menu for you and your girlfriend who you just gave a new phone for birthday.
This phone probably will cost 550 euros ( 640 $), his words means an increased price way. And rarely will has a discount next Black Friday, which is usually the day to burn old stock with offers. We will see a lot of flagships with drop prices that day, when this one will be available. Now, without offer, you can buy a S8 G950F for 547 euros ( 637 $) and the dual SIM G950FD for 570 euros ( 664 $) so say that this cost half than others... is a lie. Half only against iPhone X and Mate 10 Porsche, no more.
And being a R11 clone forget about IP rating, OIS, etc. The increase in price is due to a bigger screen, better selfie camera, and probably few more mAh in the battery. Even I doubt that i'll has expandable storage like the R11, OnePlus was against it in their last models. You must be a big big fan or a big blind to buy this phone. Perhaps they really believe that are like the Apple brand of Android phones... with the flock following them wherever they want to take them.
Kangal, 10 Nov 2017The S8 has been getting price drops around the world. I saw a steal-deal for it back in July ... moreSamsung S8 may have everything you want on an android phone in hardware, but i believe many people prefer the OP5T over the S8. Because people who buy oneplus phones want pure android and a fast OS. The direct competition for OP5T is the Pixel 2 XL which cost 900+.
AnonD-714751, 10 Nov 2017Any Idea if the phone will be water resistant??I guess is:
it won't be water resistant for one plus 5T, until the one plus 6. One Plus 6 will remove the headphone jack and get minimum IP67 rating. It is the same situation like Xiaomi and Huawei when they are new into water resistant phone, they removed headphone jack and put the IP rating (example: Mi 6, Huawei mate 10 pro).
Stop saying it will cost the same! Message from CEO is pretty clear. Seems a lot of people has problems interpreting it. I'll break it down for you.
"Cost of smartphone components is rising" -> he's showing us a fact, something not debatable. It is rising in fact.
"but phones are also getting better" -> he's showing us that despite the rising of components, Oneplus is making better and better smartphones. Which is also true.
"OnePlus users will appreciate what's coming." -> he's saying we should accept a small increment in price, because of what he said earlier. It's logic working. But despite that small rise, we'll still enjoy it because the small amount of increase in price will justify totally what the new phone is gonna offer. So, we will be pleased.
