OnePlus 5 caught cheating in benchmark results, using the same old display as 3T. This hype needs to die.
Don't give better then others give different then others.
Do not buy any product by reviews. Companies can get reviews fabricated.
In my opinion softwear (OS) are more important then the hardwear when it comes to ease of using the phones utilities. One OS for many different hardware is a difficult task. OS system should get made according to the hardwear configuration.(vice versa)
One can not beat the pioneer and a scientific product by marketing gimmicks.
Use your own head instead.

If phone breaks you lose eve... morebcz if u use SD card slot u have to pay royal charges for the company which acquired patent for SD technology. Do you know why apple cut headphone jack, SD card slot ? this is the exact reason.
Android mobiles pay charges of $5-$20 for each mobile for using some of MS patent technology.
no front led flash i dont know why they skipped it. other companies are also stupid like samsung,htc,lg,google
none of their flagship phone have front flash .may be they all are waiting for apple to provide it first then they will follow and battery is also less.

Please go to any chinese third-party international online store and see for yourself how many iPhone 7+ rip-offs are available at the moment from various Chinese manufacturers.

Unofficially(is you're interested in the unofficial stuff) they put a leprechaun insides that cheats on benchmark tests.

Nah, i am happier with headphone jack enabled phones. Iphone and it's wannabe copies aren't for me.

If the phone falls and goes kaput, so does all those files in your phone...so larger storage? Useless. I'd rather, if they made the internal storage to 32 gigs and added an SD card option. Not even hybrid? Sad!
No matter HOW careful you are, one small spill or accident and the phone's kaput. What use is a brick then?
S7 edge isn't standing at the price you quoted bro. It's about 400$ now. A neat bargain i'd say. What good's an 8 gb ram unless you're going to game yourself to death? That too with that minscule battery? Gimme a break!
Blatantly copying an iphone 7 plus in modes of camera and memory but omitting the waterproofing? Duh!
benben, 21 Jun 2017hey look its oppo R11But it's way more powerful...also both Oppo and OnePlus are owned by BBK so they can do that and it isn't really wrong...
AnonD-663238, 21 Jun 2017yep, the headphone jack was a good secret that OnePlus kept. :)Come on, if the 3.5 mm HJ is a daily breaker when talking about smartphones, than you have serious issues..
I use bluetooth headphones on my smartphones since 3 years ago. They are more practical..and also some models nowadays sound better in bluetooth version.
vandal, 21 Jun 2017There is no dual tone flash.... why ??cost saving, never settle!

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.
