Serp, 21 Jun 2017I allways wonder why they make phones without a memory card slot. If phone breaks you lose eve... moreSecurity, performance and marketing.
External storage if you lost your phone, people can steal your data. Internal storage are encrypted. (Yes I know you can encrypt your microSD card too, not everyone does that).
Performance wise, internal storage is much faster than the microSD card, also OnePlus 5 use a file system called UFS 2.1 which is supposed to be very fast.
Marketing because people cannot expand their storage space, so they are forced to buy the more expensive model with bigger internal storage space, this is the main way Apple make extra bucks.
With that said I always get a phone with microSD card, one reason is "adoptable storage", this is a new feature of Android where format microSD card so it work as part of internal storage, which means you can store apps and everything there and not run out of 'system space'. Some manufacturers like LG disable the ability to format microSD as adaptable storage, but you can still do it manually using ADB commands.
The s7 edge is about 200euro more expensive than the upgraded version of the oneplus 5. One plus 5 has a better camera, twice the RAM, an 8 core processor vs a 4 core, Larger storage, newer version of bluetooth, etc.
AnonD-678857, 21 Jun 2017Is it dust and waterproof????????????No.
I allways wonder why they make phones without a memory card slot. If phone breaks you lose everything if no card. So hard to build?
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2017Is it ip 68by "it" do you mean the OnePlus 5? No water resistance or water proofing. darn, right? Headphone jack and slider switch though...
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2017The combination of 8gb ram and 3300mah doesn't make senseit's been said that the battery makes it through the day with filming videos, surfing, gaming, etc. and some waiting until the next day to charge it. claims of 0 to 56 % in 30 minutes. makes sense to me since ram is what I'm looking for to run all those precious apps AND to update them.
Tech inthusiast, 20 Jun 2017It has gyro eis like seen in the google pixel so it is not all badDear, Check the real life performance of this camera centric flagship killer on YouTube , and decide yourself whether EIS(gyro) is good enough ?
Its clearly visible that despite of high Alexander, the quality is way inferior compared to even its own lineup like oneplus 3/3T, rest you can decide yourself !
Expectations were pretty as advertised by Mr. Pei... Big disappointment for me as a oneplus user !
Nothing new, I'd rather buy the galaxy s7 edge which is cheaper and have water proffing, beter amoled display, longer battery life.
Pooja J, 21 Jun 2017So ive been waiting for OP5 since last 6 month and now i sad because its not worth price they ... moreOP 5 is really good phone but to be honest I just used it for 30 mins. And found nothing great . Actually it a decent phone
But I compared it with Samsung's flagship s8plus and it was not at all overwhelming as I experienced with S8plus .So may be subject edge is a good choice😎😎😎
I was waiting for this phone but I bought s7 lately for just $450 with same camera specs with s8+(base on google) and they both performed well on camera shots as i have watched it on youtube(s8+ VS OP5),by the way the most affordable price for one plus 5 is $570+ :) I have no regrets and s7 is waterproof for a much lower value :D
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2017Good points Sd835 Dual camera Slim design LPDDR4X RAM UFS 2.1 Decent price ($300 less th... moreJust don't make sense to buy this phone over the slightly lower price s7 edge or other alternatives. This phone is only for oneplus fanboys and people who really need 8gb ram to develop nasa format for the space mission.
TechLover1, 21 Jun 2017Well, basically, it's a mixed emotions. In a way, okay it's the SD835 and dual camera setup (1... moreMi6 Is IPS LCD Witch Is Old(Not Good As OLED)
Is Also 1080P
Still No Sd Card
12 MegaPixel With F1.8 Compare To 20 Megapixel With 1.7
Selfie Is 8 MP
No 3.5 HJ
And Of Course Less Price tag
But My Opinion Is:Mi 6 It's Not Comparable To OP5.
Lots Of Fans And Haters Just Talking About The SD Card, IR, IP68, Bezel Less, Stereo Speakers, Better Display But When It's Come To Price Tag They Also Don't Want To Be More Expensive!!!!!
One Plus Can't Make Miracle Just Be Reasonable For A Minute!!!!!!!
All Of Them Want S8 With 439$ Price Tag And When OP Remove Some Features To Make A Flagship With Reasonable Price Tag They Just Don't Think But Just Talk!!!!!
AnonD-34426, 21 Jun 2017A real flagship killer would, at least, have water/splash and doost proof in my opinion. And a... morePlus the original killer price point has made this irrelevant to me not far of a major companys phone price which you will get much more support, one plus just drop you and its phones like a brick.
HarryD, 21 Jun 2017Isn't it entirely possible that this phone is unofficially water-resistant?
I remember the On... moreIts more than likely. But meeting a standard isnt necessarily easy and even if the phone would be close to some standard, its probably easier, cheaper and with less legal problems to not give promises.
Moto G5 doesnt have any water resistance officially, but definitely is resistant to it.
