Don't have the oneplus 5t, but it's cheaper and with the SD835. The only reason it's $650 is because of the new under the screen fingerprint reader. Not worth the price for one new tech feature, would wait for the 2nd or 3rd version.
The pricing looks pretty good. Under display fingerprint scanner looks cool, despite being a little slow.. Needs some refinements to make it fast then it becomes a standard feature on future smartphones.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018Made in China and designed in China is two completely different things Yeah in one case money goes to a guy in your country who won't be using it for your benefit anyways. In case 2 it goes to guy from other country who'll happily sell you much cheaper phone..
Love the Community, 19 Jan 2018So a sub $650 smartphone with a midrange SD660 and underscreen scanner?
You got to understa... more650$ for snapdragon 660 with oled is reasonable cheap!
And you also get new fingerprint scanner... This is a bargain!
with 845 this would be 999$
Fingerprint unlocking is a thing of the past as it's mostly insecure - anyone can unlock your phone without your consent.
Thing of the past like headphone jacks.

You were the first to mention apple here in your first comment, saying that BBK thinks that they are the apple of chinese, heavily implying that only apple has the right/acceptable to the public to charge high for their devices.
Yeah, iphones have better hardware than vivo's offerings, yeah, they have longer/better support, but they lack many features and have the very limiting ios, so...?
nice! hope to see more manufacturers implement this tech soon.
or maybe even improve the speed and area
That is unsurprisingly expensive for 1st gen under display fingerprint sensor phone. You guys should wait a few more months. Other manufacturer will enhance its speed and lower the price. You will regret buying this Vivo just to be 'first' having it. Nobody care what phone you have. Dont try to be early adopters unless you are a famous youtuber doing review.
Inverted snowhuouV, 19 Jan 2018As if iphone with a11 and faceid for over $1000 is better. And of course, everyone starting trolling with iPhones. Maybe iPhones are expensive, but at least you will get the best hardware and support (yes, I know about slowing down, but only Xiaomi supports own phones for years, like Apple). What giving Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus? IPhone look and comparable prices and nothing else. Ridiculous hardware, mediocre cameras, and bots everywhere. At least look at Honor, Nubia, Xiaomi. All of them Chinese, but offering much more, best and cheaper. Compare to competitors. Stop trolling with iPhones. Nobody cares them here.
ZloiYuri, 19 Jan 2018More than 600$ for SD660? Really? BBK corporation think they are Chinese AppleAs if iphone with a11 and faceid for over $1000 is better.
Welp $600 bucks is kinda expensive for the spec. I mean you can be the first to have UD fingerprin scanner phone but others will have it too in lest than a year.
ZloiYuri, 19 Jan 2018You forgot another overpriced bbk chinaphone - OnePlus.Lol OnePlus is underpriced. I remembered you the guy who refuses to use security measures like passwords and fingerprints because you trust your families and friends.
ZloiYuri, 19 Jan 2018You forgot another overpriced bbk chinaphone - OnePlus.You p r i c k s don't know by now that everything is made in China? Like the overpriced Samsungs or iPhones?
So a sub $650 smartphone with a midrange SD660 and underscreen scanner?
You got to understand that underscreen fp scanner is new technology. Like Oculus and Vive before, they're first gen tech and they're expensive as hell.
Wait until other phone companies who uses OLED displays can put the same or better underscreen scanners for cheaps. You're basically paying for Early Access.
Is it possible to expect Samsung under display finger print phone cast ..
