Did you have any problems with charging?
I just received a phone and it has really loose charger/usb-c socket. Is it a common problem for OP3? Haven't seen any complaints about it among users. Weird. I don't know if I should replace this phone with another if it makes any sense.

1) Display - Its great but need Optic Amoled qHD
2) Camera - Not the best but I think they should consider using same sensors used in Nexus 6P and Pixel XL.
3) Battery Life - Less than average.
Rumors says they are going to release OP3S
I would buy it anytime only if they are able to deliver without compromising on things mentioned above
Long story short. I bought OnePlus 3 in the begging of August. Received defected phone, sent it for replacement and again received defected phone. Then nobody wanted to agree with returning.... Finally after 2 months of avoidance they have agreed and issued return ticket. Phone has been returned and guess what? Now they are avoiding to refund my money!
Phone has been under inspection for 9 working days ( their story was inspection takes 3-5 working days).
Honestly, this is the worst experience I ever had....

Do you they look at everything the see around them with a magnifying glass? If yeah then I cant blame them. They are fools they don't seem how to use their eyes and sight to admire something worthwhile right in front of them they start looking for faults.
The phone is very good for the price tag, but where it fall short on breath is the battery life. Its a mixed bag honestly its totally dependent on your usage and it may vary on a daily basis every day isn't going to be a busy day, if it is going to be a very busy day then carry a power bank with you and don't forget the C-type cable else it won't charge your device.
Some expert users say the phone battery life can be increased by changing to a CUSTOM ROM, which I'm planning to move to as well on my OP3 so, I suggest you pick the phone up if your planning to buy one, the sweetest part of buying this phone is the warranty doesn't go void when you move to a custom ROM how many phone manufacturers you know out there who offers this to their customers? Nobody but Oneplus so, take a dive you're in safe hands.

What would you recommend? Note 5 or Oneplus 3? Speaking of battery life, camera and display, mainly?
Also, on OP3 side, should I wait for new OP if the rumors have some truth?

After having this phone for about a month now, I have to say IÂ’m overall really impressed for a $400 device.
From a look and feel perspective, the OP3 ticks all the right boxes. Great, premiumÂ—if somewhat genericÂ—design aesthetic. Beautiful screen (1080p is perfectly serviceable for anything but VR, and it helps save on battery life). Logical placement of all the controls, buttons and (user-assignable) capacitive keys. And dat notification slider, thoÂ—wonderful, practical design.
Under the hood IÂ’m really fairly pleased as well. This phone is as fast and stable (and 100% less explodey) as the Note 7 it replacedÂ—a phone that costs OVER DOUBLE the OP3Â’s asking price. IÂ’ve had only one app crash in a month and even that seems like an app issue, rather than the phoneÂ’s core hardware/software.
The camera will be an issue for some people as it falls squarely into the Â“fineÂ” range. ItÂ’s by no means bad, but nor is it class leading in any way. The softwareÂ’s good and it consistently produces pretty good shots in a variety of conditions. But that 200-series Sony sensor just canÂ’t compete against current, more expensive, flagship cameras. Still, fine is good enough for me in the camera department.
Heard the phoneÂ’s launch firmware had some memory management and battery life problems but I havenÂ’t experienced either in day-to-day use and I can usually squeeze a (acceptable, if a bit unimpressive) full day of frequent but untaxing use out of the device. Fast (or Dash, as itÂ’s branded here) charging does work really well and helps make up for the somewhat Â“fineÂ” battery life. Word of warning, thoughÂ—OnePlusÂ’ Dash charging ONLY works with their proprietary Dash Charging cables AND proprietary Dash Charging wall adapter. Not a big deal for me but YMMV.
On the software and OS side, itÂ’s more of the sameÂ—not a bad thing in this case. The Oxygen OS skin is light and doesnÂ’t seem to be slowing anything down (which, honestly, is all I really require of an Android skin) and actually manages to add in some useful/fun features. Being able to change your notification LED color is nice, if somewhat useless. Screen-off pattern commands are limited but work well (draw a V on the screen to turn the flashlight on or off, right arrow to skip to the next song, etc). But the real standout features are the ability to customize your capacitive keys to your liking. Want to launch you camera with a double-tap of the Home key? Sure. Want long-press Back to open up your last used app? No problem. Want to swap the Back and Recent buttons to make it feel more Samsung? You got it. I donÂ’t know why this simple customization feature isnÂ’t on all phones.
Not everything about the OS was great though, and I did find the lack of Home/Lock screen and app drawer customization a little annoying. Still, it was nothing Nova Launcher couldnÂ’t fix and the performance hasnÂ’t taken any kind of hit from the change.
So a month in, and IÂ’m really pretty pleased with the OP3. Pleased enough, in fact, that I am seriously considering sticking with OnePlus for the OP4 next year. But there are a couple things that I would like to see before I give OnePlus my money next year.
1) Waterproofing. I know this is a feature some people donÂ’t care about but for me it is the single biggest feature I would like to see added for the OP4. And, conversely, if there is one thing that might entice me back to Samsung or Sony, itÂ’s a LACK of waterproofing in the OP4. A lot of people live in rainy places and this is a big deal where I live. I would have GLADLY paid an extra $50 for a ip68 model of the OP3.
2) Better battery life. The OP3Â’s battery life is okay. But it could be a lot better. Almost certainly, market pressureÂ’s gonna make OnePlus but a 2k screen in the OP4 and I hope they make sure the battery life can keep up to that change (even if they have to thicken the device a little bit to add a bigger cell).
Do these 2 things, OnePlus, and you have my money with the OP4.
Abhay, 14 Oct 2016Want to buy oneplus3 bit very confused shall I go for OnePlus 3 or mi5 .. pls help me to decide. mi 5 s plus
Sagar, 17 Oct 2016Hi I am using1+3past 5days
And I am not satisfied with battery
Can any1 tell is someone el... moreYeahÂ—thatÂ’s absolutely not normal. I would upgrade to the newest firmware. If that doesnÂ’t fix the problem, try a full restore of the device (might be some kind of persistent memory leak issue?)
If that doesnÂ’t fix it, contact OnePlus and have them replace it. It may just be a defective unit.
I usually get a full day and evening of heavy but non-intensive use (basic web browsing, lowish screen brightness mostly) without much problem. Usually starts getting into single digits around 2000 or 2100 at night.
