Unless you live in rainforest r so you dont need to worry about water damage.
Anyway in heavy rain no matter if you hav eIP68 or MIL-STD you will worry to take out your phone and call someone especialy it is a flagship.
Anyway water resistant cover cost like 2-5 eur on alliexpress so paying 100-200 bucks for IP68 is waste of money.
OnePlus 5T is an excellent phone and it would have been great if:
1: it had included a dedicated (not hybrid) SD card slot.
2: packed a larger 4000 mAH battery (with the same awesome optimization it already has).
3: Bumped up the AMOLED panel resolution to 2k or 4k and made it VR compatible!
Jimbob, 18 Nov 2017No OIS!!Have you ever tested it's EIS?
Its really good!
And even some of the phones with OIS do not offer stabilization in 4K videos which OnePlus does and it also offers EIS with front cam!

As gaming is directly related to performance and if we talk about performance in Android phones, OnePlus is the best!
Battery life is awesome on OnePlus devices!
They optimize it really well, thanks to OnePlus!
However, you could also look for Razer phone which is built solely for gaming..
However no one's used it yet and so can't say about its battery life.
So in the end I will again recommend you the OnePlus 5T!

In that event they said that Oreo update for 5T will be tested in beta by December and will be rolled out to public in Q1 2018

I mean seriously you cannot use your phone even to take a call or watch YouTube videos or play games and from socket to your charging pad it's always the cable connection and still everyone calls it wireless charging!!
DASH charge is the best i have ever experienced!! ❤️❤️
It is fast and reliable and it doesn't let your phone to heat up even at 20W power supply!
Unlike other fast charging techniques, it charges at the same faster rate even when you are using your phone!
Either come up with a solution that is actually & truly wireless, for example, in which you can use your phone within your home or at least in your whole room while it is charging, otherwise DASH charge is the best! ❤️

AnonD-441601, 19 Nov 2017man compared to other flagships OP doesnt need to decrease their price because at release date... moreThat was true until OP 3T. When 5 released it was only marginally cheaper than other flagships. Now the 5T doesn't offer anything huge in terms of upgrades other than catching upto other 2017 flagships in terms of design and potentially camera. And by now those flagships it was trying to play catch up to r much cheaper and thus 5T no longer holds the advantage when it comes to pricing.
Curved screen yes useless feature, but then so is 2.5D glass as it makes it very hard to put a proper screen guard on it.
But to say that water resistance is useless is being blissfully ignorant. Unless u live in a basement and never step out u will know that water resistance is a critical feature. Especially so when it's a flagship phone. U will eventually learn to appreciate it when ur phone one day gets ruined by water damage.

5T. Are you kidding me OnePlus? Still no wireless charging and no optical zoom in camera. It's a shame. Just improving the RAM and giving dual 20MP camera alone is not innovation. May be if the phone is priced less than 30,000/- will surely be a value proposition. Any day I can choose iPhone 8 over 5t. One plus says "Never Settle" but no new feature really coming in OnePlus series in the last few iterations.

So i dont know what you are trying to say.
And compared to other flagships OP is always better choice.
At least they dont force you to buy a lot of useless garbage which makes your phone cost much more than it would. For example IP68, Curved glass screen etc.

This phone has a 120HZ screen plus 4000Mah battery. Very loud speakers too.
@Hexivoid , my comment is a swipe at OnePlus & Dxomark , the last Oneplus 5 it got 87 on DxoMark , & everyone ( Reviewers on GSMARENA was calling it a fraud. There were corner softness issues , moire noise in certain light scenes including broad daylight!! , the 20MP telephoto lens was a joke because of small pixels ( now on 5t you will get full software 2x imagine the quality ) , but this time again DxoMark like last time will ignore few things , & give high marks to 5t .
BTW there is a OnePlus 5 video on youtube were the camera designer admits to give flagship in price we have to compromise on camera & etc.
Overall 5t will be good in everyday work task but in camera don't expect flagship stuff.
AnonD-441601, 18 Nov 2017Thats now. But when the other flagships were at first week on sale they coosted a lot more. ... moreHow does it matter when the the other phones r released when they r still better than the brand new 5T? And ur argument is totally invalid cos OP never decreases their prices. Even if they did it will be right before the phone is getting discontinued and only by a small amount. Unlike other manufacturers who keep their phones and gradually decrease their price over the phones life time OP just discontinues their previous model the moment new one is abt to come out.
