The phone is good but its price is bit too high. I think I should settle for OnePlus 3T.

I didn't know that a place like that exists. I too felt the same like you until my phone was exposed to rain which came all of a sudden and got a bill which is far more than a new phone itself. Not just Samsung, even your OnePlus charges more for any kind of replacement. My cousin's op2 was exposed to rain, and was damaged and OnePlus charged ₹28,000 for the replacement where a new phone cost me ₹24999! Everyone is greedy here not just Samsung and Apple. Only the cam and processor are new in OP5 and screen is just a remodeled OP3T screen and design everybody knows from where it came. What OnePlus did is to cram new proceesor and cam in a body with same front as 3T and back just copied from iPhone 7 plus. So they could have easily provided those missing features with the cost saved from redesigning and putting a new screen, atleast in 8gb version which is priced in the range of S7, xz, and iPhone 7. You are advising me to use phone carefully instead of asking for waterproofing, i will say the same for S8's curved screen. If used carefully it won't break just as my S6E's screen which is still just as new even after 2 and half year of abuse.

RaghavaZ, 30 Jun 2017Just go through the comparison tests done by GSMA and see who the winner is in each section. "... moreMan the camera is approximately the same. So S8 is waste of money.
Design is really bad as i said before but some people never understands and always talke the same.
Curved screen is awesome for breaking the phone really fast then enjoy a 400 eur bill for repairs.
And IP68 unless you live in a rain forest is useless.
If you dont came home drunk and accidentally flush your phone into toilet during vomiting you literary dont need IP68 thus water resistance. So all this is just waste of money and good business for a greed Samsung Company. Any other man on the earth will agree with me but you looks like you are something special. Please ignore me and waste your money as you like and feed Samsung with your money they will really appreciate it. I will rather have a flagship killer for 500 than an ugly curved phone with no bezels and easily to break screen from a greedy company like Samsung which cost 300-400 extra which is waste of money.
I rather support charity for extra 400 than pay this for a phone with some useless add-ons.

"Only, once the iPhone is out, the OnePlus 5 loses yet some more ground. The S8 is a little more expensive but isn't it worth it, all things considered? There's no portrait mode on the S8, that's for sure. But there are all those important bits we listed a couple of paragraphs earlier." They too concluded that S8's screen, camera, design, and IP68 are worth the extra investment.

OnePlus should not stop production of OP 3T as it is still rated higher than OP 5. Average comparison taken from three top reviewers is given below. OP 3T rating is given first and OP 5 given in brackets:-
OP 3T Rating- Design-9(7) Display-8(7) Software-8(9) Performance-9(10) Battery life-9(9)
Camera-9(7) Value for money-9(7) Over all rating- 9(8)

Anyway phone with no bezels its like car with no bumper and thats tottaly ugly, so design of S8 is really bad.
Camera in OP5 is as good as S8 have a can confirm that.
And theres nothing bad in screen with this phone.
S8 is just waste of money.
Literary most of the population have no use for phone like S8 is. Reason is very simple most people use their phones just for calling messages making a photos or videos playing games and receiving and sending email. Just less than a 1% of S8 users needs this phone for work instead of notebook or any other PC. Rest use it as a jewelry to look good when walking on streets with phone like that.
But as i said above. Phone with no bezels is like car with no bumpers and thats ugly. Phone looks really bad and the screen is easily broken when it drops even from a small heights. Which is a big disadvantage. Only thing that S8 cost 800 and 900 eur for a plu version is eye sensor which makes a good protection to your phone. But thats a waste of money.
Like 4K screen on 5 inch sony phones. Human eye is unable to spod differences between full hd and 4k on such a small screen.
So grats Samsung you make a phone which is useless instead OP5 is a real champion on phone market. Because phone doesnt need to cost 800+ eur to be perfect in every aspect.

AnonD-640268, 30 Jun 2017Brother there is no australia region available to purchase in their site .What are you talking about?
Then get one from amazon or ebay or maybe alliexpress.com
you are good to go.
On this god damn forgotten world there are several ways how to get this phone.
Dont surrender just yet.
AnonD-640268, 29 Jun 2017I respect your opinion brother but 1+5 is not available in my country.... Where are you from tho? There is an option of choosing ''other region'' in the bottom. Try using that and make sure to use a 20$ bonus code for accesories aswell :)
after watching the tear-down of oneplus 5 , i love the build of this phone except lack memory card slot. changing damage usb port and audio jack port was easy than other phone.

Beside this problem, Indian users have confirmed of scrolling web pages and twitter getting jelled up ie some sort of jelly effect. Company has stated that they are aware of this problem but not offered any solution so far. Some users also reported sudden drop in battery back up performance which is weird. OP 5 has started on a wrong note which was not the case with its previous models of 3 and 3t. Hoping all these problems are sorted out in OP 5t which should be rolled out soon.
