Or did you miss it because its been taken down?
And these are the only 2 claims I made on this page:
-Unnecessary apps by Google are also a form of bloat.
-Soc is not the only thing that matters on a smartphone, so you cant just judge a phone based on it.
Try arguing with the logic here instead of throwing insults

Alien , 03 Apr 2018What's your alternative for Gaaps? I've tried FDroid but don't like it so much..
Now i have o... moreWhen I say Gapps, I mean not just the Play store but all the other garbage that comes with most phones. Includes Gmail (the biggest culprit), Play movies and books(which I doubt anyone uses) and Chrome (I'm a firefox loyalist)
I have no use for the above, and I dont mind extra apps pre-installed, as long as they can be removed. So I disabled all the Google crap and put alternatives to make the phone faster.
For Play store I have APK Pure on my Z1 and Amazon on the Blackberry.
For APK Pure, you don't need an app store, the url or a bookmark on the home screen is enough, and Amazon often gives payed apps for free.

This thing was buttery smooth the first day, has a few hiccups sometimes now and the enhancements from Sony are all helpful.
I don't think Sony NEEDS any updates

And no, I'm not Indian, quite the opposite. Still, you should not be making fun of Indians and their reading comprehension skills:

Mitochondria, 03 Apr 2018Its still rumored though so take it with grain of salt, Calm down guys.Gapps are bloatware should calm down. I'm calm.
Though my phone is more expensive I think oneplus is going a wrong way. They are no Huawei or Xiaomi, offering mid range phones as well as high end ones. People switched from Samsung and Apple to OnePlus for price = quality alone. I cant seem to see where Oneplus spends the money as, at least in Europe, they don't have any commercials running, whereas Samsung and Apple spend millions on advertisement every year. The specs are good, but not outstanding compared to other flagship phones. Why would people buy OnePlus over competing phones nowadays? I dont got no clue. I dont even consider it anymore...bye oneplus, your first 2 phones were awesome.
What else would you expect from this shade and deceitful company.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2018No IP68, "technically" this isn't considered as a flagship. More like a midrange. Whether there is an IP rating or not doesn't determine a phone to be a flagship phone. There is no iPhone with an IP68 rating yet, it is still a flagship phone. The Galaxy S5 had IP67 still a flagship same for the S6 with no IP rating

Try again troll.
As for the updates and security patches, Sony is no 1 right after the Pixel line.
PS Sony support is very good, at least in Europe. The only place where people complain about it is India. But guess what: indian people work there. Funny thing, they should be no 1 in support and call centers, right?
Better troll on replika brands if trolling is your thing..

But I will say that you implied it.
AnonD-510098, 02 Apr 2018op6 doa.As much as this phone deserves to be DOA, Oneplus has enough brain dead fans that will still support them, no matter how crappy and expensive the phone is.
They jacked up the price of the 5 and 5 T and it was their best selling phone yet.
I was about to get the s9+ but I think I like the 1+ 6 more because of the notch. Trimmed bezels are too common and boring to deserve the high price of s9+
