S, 06 Jul 2017What's the future proof we are talking about here? Oneplus stop upgrading the OS after 1 to 2 ... moreBy future proof I mean the RAM is future proof... And the updates are not confirmed... The oneplus one was launched with kitkat and was updated till marshmallow, then Qualcomm stopped making the drivers for the Snapdragon 801 present on the opo so oneplus had to stop... The drivers released by Qualcomm for the SD810 were very unstable so oneplus decided to keep the oneplus 2 on marshmallow so that it doesn't create a problem for the users... Anyways even if we don't get the official update we always have a very good community to developers who can provide unofficial updates...
Cpt. Power, 05 Jul 2017Sorry man its not a piece of jnk its an expensive garbage better now? Try to work for Samsung... moreBro, there are many behind the stuffs going on... Samsung phones are available offline and online both, oneplus is only available online which contributes to the reduction of price of oneplus... Then the service aspects, oneplus has a lot less service centres than what samsung has... As oneplus is expanding they're also increasing the prices... The profit margins on spare parts for samsung phones is way less than oneplus... There was a case when a oneplus 3 was completely destroyed and the service centre quoted the person 48k for the total repair... That's almost double the cost...
Those who are planning to buy OP 5 should necessarily compare it with recently launched Honor 8 Pro. Honor 8 Pro camera with OIS and performance in poor light conditions is a clear winner against OP 5 in both still photos and videos. Battery and gaming performances are similar in both devices. However, Honor Pro scores over in design, display in sunlight and Rs 5k less cost overall, is a clear winner over OP 5.

does anyone watch that this phone can survive under water without IP68 water resistance and dust proof
Cpt. Power, 06 Jul 2017Man when apple costed 649? That never happened even an Iphone 6 i dont mean 6s brand new cost ... moreKudos Cpt. Well said.
Well also why apps and games MAY come to the App Store first is because they can trust the dumb iOS users to make them money by buying the apps at crazy prices.
But, about Samsung and OnePlus and other companies, your conclusion isn't apt.
I have forever been an Android user, Galaxy S, S2, S3 Mini, Alcatel Idol X+, OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, Lenovo K4 Note, Moto E3, S7 & now S8+.
With companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus value for money yeah, but that reliability factor, and the things you get with the brand name, the trust, the customer service and basically a promise of consistency, be it in being good or bad, they do what they do best.
Developers, IT guys etc maybe can experiment with their mobiles, there comes a time in your life where people like me just HATE companies that do something (as little as a dot) cheap, I just cannot take it.
They said they will not be spending on marketing so the phones would be cheaper. They're spending millions on marketing with actors and star models, yet not so much on their poor, poor customer service.
When Carl Pei said "The 2016 flagship killer" that was the end of OnePlus for me. And after I got the phone, that was it.
I'm not a Samsung fan or any other brand for that matter, it's just quality and service that I'm after.
Cpt. Power, 06 Jul 2017Man when apple costed 649? That never happened even an Iphone 6 i dont mean 6s brand new cost ... moreGo to apple website and check the prices of iPhone 7 32gb, unlocked, carrier free. $649. Every new iPhone's basic version debuts at $649.
Last Word, 30 Jun 2017Agreed camera is a huge disappointment in OP 5. Beside this problem, Indian users have confirm... moreFrom what I understand, the jelly rolling problem is because Oppo, didn't want to waste the left over inventory of the 3T screens. Because of the "gimmick" of the dual camera the 3T screen would not fit properly so they inverted the screen, and moved the connector to the bottom. With screens refreshing from top left to bottom right, this causes the "jelly" effect.
You can bet, once the inventory of left over 3T screens are gone, they will get a supply of screens with the connector on the bottom. I guess it will be determined how many people will complain enough, to get Oppo/OnePlus to refund/exchange the phones that people complain about.
RaghavaZ, 06 Jul 2017Lol you talking about games now? Have you got any idea why all the big games debut in iPhone a... moreMan when apple costed 649? That never happened even an Iphone 6 i dont mean 6s brand new cost like 600 and we speak about 2 years old phone. Sony Z5 premium started about 800 eur now cost half. After 2 years apple devices are maybe 100-150 eur cheaper no more instead fo Chinese phones which get this cheap even they costed brand new half price. My Lenovo Vibeshot brand new costed 389 eur brand new, now in my show we sell it for 259 eur.
And yes i use my phone for gaming or do you think an hour by bus to work and from work i look onto the same streets every day to see same houses same trees streets etc?
No i spend it by gaming. Games comes to androind very late how when?
According to guiness world records book google play store offers like 1/3 more than apple store and most of games programs and many other is completely free or for a minimum pay. In apple store barely something is free and every time i try download something its ask for password which is boring. Even an unwanted crap cost at least 1 dollar in apple store.
And if you dont agree you probably never saw an android store.
Iphone preforms better unless you run games which require lot of good hardware in phone and apple just works as very old turtle on retirement i am sure most games dont laggs but the one i play laggs a lot on average i mean mid ranger phones or lesser. So in apple phone game i play often will lagg a lot. And battery dies really fast.
But phone with Snapdragon 835 GPU Adreno 540 6-8 gb ram and 4000+ mAh battery just doesnt exist. Which is shame. After 2 years my Lenovo Vibeshot last like 100-120 mins when i play till battery dies. In iphone even a brand new phone Iph7 wont run clash of lords for more than 60 minutes.
About the cost i agree with most but in apple and Samsung you pay half the price for brand expenses. Now i dont mean people which works for these companies. Basic workers get some salary but CEO of these companies rent in every corner they exist advertising and other expenses makes their devices super expensive.
I said it before i repeat it once agant best advertising are people. If one likes and enjoys something he will tell his friends and family and literary no advertising is needed.
Try to imagine how much Samsung spend on advertising in TVs around the globe for Samsung S8 and S8+. A lot of wasted money. This discussion can last forever and i have no time for that. In some parts i agree with u but many you said is lie or false truth.
As asalesman with phones and accesorize i know what i am talking about.
Had in my hands so many devices you could never ever imagine.
So please your tales are nice for childrens which ask dad or mom to buy them iphone because its trendy but we adult know its just and wasted money. If i compare Xiaomi MI6 S8 or Iphone 7 winner is xiaomi half the price and as good as the others.
Have a nice day my friend.

RaghavaZ, 06 Jul 2017Lol you talking about games now? Have you got any idea why all the big games debut in iPhone a... moreDon't bother yourself. These people have something wrong going on and they think that OP5 is basically the ultimate phone, the best of all time. No wonder it can't even match the selling rates of Huawei's flagships or even Xiaomi.. Let them live in their delusion :)
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2017They're both good on their own terms. I don't recall seeing any cons on the Mi 6 ? Actually no... moreFor me it's okay to follow iPhone 7 design and back panel's made of cuz the back panel on iPhone 7 is great quality, just only the design, looks same but 3.5mm audio jack removal is one of the unacceptable things to many people (not only me). Just let the iPhone alone who made a devices with no audio jack. IP68 certification includes the lessen risk to damage audio jack like what've been Samsung and Sony did
Cpt. Power, 05 Jul 2017If i would like best phone i will buy Vertu or Gresso. Apple Sony and Samsung are expensive bu... moreLol you talking about games now? Have you got any idea why all the big games debut in iPhone and come to android very late? iPhones and games go hand in hand. Not only games but all apps perform better in iPhones, you accept it or not, that's the fact. I can confirm that being an iPhone 6s and Galaxy S6E user. Yes battery gets down very fast if we play gfx intense games but they neither lag or stutter during game play nor show any delay in opening those games. Even GSMA accepts apps and games perform better in iPhones. And now talking about prices: It costs Samsung approximately 307$ to manufacture S8 with a new curved qhd display, SD835/Exynos, ISOCELL camera and all other bits and pieces and OP5's manufacturing costs will be lesser than that considering all the cost cutting it took by reusing 3T's screen(which still costs less to manufacture compared to Samsung's curved screens) and sub par camera, obviously less R&D cost involved in copying an iPhone, we will put that figure at $230/240. And Samsung is a very big company which has a very large R&D department to go with manufacturing business. So if they sell phone for 307$ who will pay all those who worked at factory and R&D? In that case OnePlus should also sell you at the said price of $240. Then why they are selling at 500-550$? Prices of S8 and iPhones are exorbitant accepted but thing is your OnePlus is also reaching that price range slowly with $550 8gb OP5. Every year apple prices its basic iPhones at $649 Hardly $100 more than your OP5.
