The fact that the onboard storage is in control of the manufacturer and gives consistent performance whereas the microsd speed depends on what class card you put in is exact reason why manufacturers are taking them off..
2. Other phones took away 3.5mm before apple.. So stop your apple hate.. Usb audio takes the DAC out if your phone.. And into the hands of manufacturer of your headphones.. So.. With 3.5mm jack you are stuck with good or bad audio depending on your phone.. With usb audio it depends on what you wish to invest in your headphones.. High end manufacturers will come with better built in DACs for audiophiles and if you don't want them you can go for cheaper ones..

In case of SD i think having an extra slot is always good idea because instead of your phone you cant drown your SD card and its still have more pros than cons.
But era of the jack is history of the past.
If not apple someone else would start it.
Now everything should running wireless.
Because Nikolaj Tesla inventment will live forewer.
Lack of headphone jack, the stupid notch, lack of wireless charging. NOT
[deleted post]1. No it is not fair to compare onboard storage with microsd.. Cos microsd is much slower
2. You are comparing the 64gb g7 with 4GB ram to the version of oneplus 6 with 8gb ram and comparing price?
3. I haven't seen any reviews of the g7 speaking of superior sound and camera etc? Are those simply your opinions?
Nick.B, 21 May 2018if the camera is same or better than s9+'s
then OP6 is phone of the year!Unfortunately camera remains one of OnePlus weaknesses.
It's sad to see that even Xiaomi can make a decent camera, while OnePlus is stubborn in using inferior sensors and illogical configuration.
The main camera is not bad, but it's mid range at best with that small pixels and mediocre dinamic range.
The secondary camera is just useless. It it's current form, it's only purpose is to serve portrait mode, something google can do very well with just one camera.
I would have much rather see the money spend on a single good sensor instead.

Sushant Sic, 21 May 2018But they are offering the best things in that Price Range... Atleast 50% half than rest of the... moreAt least 50% of the rest of the flagships? Hahaha!
I'm free Europe and the 5T (not 6) costs MORE than the actual high-end flagships it is trying to copy. Yes, the s8+ or the Xperia XZ2 is cheaper than the 5T.
Now tell me, how is this NOtch replika brand 50% less?
- lower quality build
- NOtch + chin! Bleahhh
- NO SD card slot
- NO waterproofing
- NO wireless charging
- NO stereo speakers
- ugly UI
- 3300mAh for a 6.3" display?
- USB 2.0 when there's 3.0 or 3.1 available?
- They lie in benchmark scores
- Everybody knows they SPY on their users
HOW on earth is this a flagship killer? All I see is a flagship wannabe.. Just pathetic!
if the camera is same or better than s9+'s
then OP6 is phone of the year!

g7 is 590 pounds https://www.unlocked-mobiles.com/sim-free-mobile-phones/lg-g7-sim-free-p-87713.html
yes you can buy the g7 for the same price as the one plus in the uk ;-)
Anonymous, 21 May 2018Are you ok? The most expensive version of the G7 will still be worse than OP6 in basically eve... moreinstead of calling people names ill just back my claims up with links
g7 price in the uk is less than 600 pounds for the 64gb version and that includes a micro sd slot i can put a 400gb card in it if i want to
the one plus 6 256gb version as i cant put a micro sd card in it costs 569 pounds in the uk
30 pounds difference for a quad dac , waterproof design , better speaker , better microphones , a second wide angle camera you can use when you want and that is actually very versatile , micro sd slot for expanding storage etc , 100 pounds headphones in the box etc etc
so no im not retarded as you put it , the links are there for everyone to see , you can buy a g7 for the same price as a one plus 6 in the uk and you get a lot more for your money ;-)
The lack of wireless charging is a major error because most top phones offer it how and there are wireless docks and pads everywhere. I have a Note8 and always want a stylus operated phone so would not get a OnePlus, but this phone does look nice and I would consider it if the screen is as good as the Note8, S8 or S9 if I didn't need a stylus, else I would get an iPhone X because it's so purdy.
mir, 21 May 2018You get turned on by gadgets? Pathetic!I think that was a metaphor. Quite obvious actually.
All depends on price now, if it is priced more, there is no difference with other flagships.
Buxz77 , 20 May 2018How are they the best value when you can buy phones like the LG G7 that offers more hardware a... morelg g7 in india was 60k and op6 cost 35k.... almost half of the cost u get almost close spec to lg g7 ...
But they are offering the best things in that Price Range... Atleast 50% half than rest of the Flagships... YoY internals offcourse gets expensive, so is the Overall Cost...
Its not that bad at all... Its better than Honor 10, Mi Mix 2S, Mi 7 (Probably), which are its direct rivals...
By bringing themselves in as Affordable Flagship Killer, OnePlus has made a big mistake... Yes, they surely are a profitable Project, however, they cannot go for more profit as they have already labled themselves as Affordable than the rest of the Flagships, So they got to keep the minimum Pricing...
If the pricing is High then people are going to Blame and No one gonna buy it... OnePlus must be in Tricky situation where they don't want to invest more and don't want to raise the Pricing...
