As a former iphone user who now uses a Samsung S8+ I would never go back to IOS. The Android OS on my phone is a pleasure to use and the phone quality is excellent. In my opinion Samsung/Android are the leaders today.
If all the phones cost the same I would choose ... Samsung S8. And if must be around at the OP5 price? Samsung S7/ LG G5/6/HTC 10 ;)
AnonD-680674, 28 Jun 2017you cannot compare a product which costs 500 with a product which costs 700 plusGuess what? They just did -.-
Oneplus 5 plagiarism to iPhone 7+. But long time ago huawei honor 6+ also come with dual camera and same placement. IPhone 7+ plagiarism to Huawei Honor 6+
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2017yesAPPLE.COM it shows the steps and manual on how to use an iPhone. :)
OJ, 29 Jun 2017"the bundled AKG earbuds that should be worth $99 on their own can actually make the S8 cheape... more"one more thing, how much it cost to replace the 7 or 8 screen? does it will keep its IP rating after that? how much a new back made of gorilla glass will cost?
Pretty like always have its cost..."
-145€ (only the glass)
-225€ (complete screen and glass)
Full Apple waranty,next day you take your phone back
Now tell us how much it cost for the 1+5,how much time it takes,and where they have service centers(in EU preferably)?
Shouldn't they be comparing the OP5, 7+ to the S8+? It would be a better comparison.
BDG, 29 Jun 2017That is right , except in Europe OP5 costs 500 Euros and GS8 costs 580Euros and considering 64... moreHere it costs 800 , much more than 500 for the oneplus , had an S7 now Iphone so im giving a OP5 a chance
JJ, 29 Jun 2017Common! Hail to the KING. iPhone 7Plus is the best phone EVER!have a 6s and just ordered a OP5 , how can you live with that crap ?? I cant stand the OS restrictions 8 months on. its tragic
Why oh why are Xenon flashes not used anymore? They offer much better night photos than software driven drivel....
"the bundled AKG earbuds that should be worth $99 on their own can actually make the S8 cheaper than the OP5..."
so its not like that, it's more like 19.25 $ worth...on amazon AKG official page.
That said, it feel like Samsung is so fear from the coming success of the OP5 that, they will do a lot and will go an extra mile for get so called free and objective review...
The OP5 sure isn't perfect , but it damn very close there, for the money you pay...
one more thing, how much it cost to replace the 7 or 8 screen? does it will keep its IP rating after that? how much a new back made of gorilla glass will cost?
Pretty like always have its cost...
AnonD-598579, 29 Jun 2017So, if you don't compare S8 with OP5, with whom you have to compare it, OP3, OP3T? They are ... moreYes, its actually big enough achievement just to have it in comparison with devices 2 times of its price. Well, they will need 1+6 for note8,iphone8,... Lets hope they will bring some original sensors too...
BDG, 29 Jun 2017That is right , except in Europe OP5 costs 500 Euros and GS8 costs 580Euros and considering 64... moreWhich country do you live?As sgs8 cost 600€+ pretty much everywere.
But anyway the price difference,any brand flagship is just so much better than 1+5 ,and thats even before I consider the customer care at all.
BDG, 29 Jun 2017But OP5 is not flagship considering no water resistance, QHD display etc...So, if you don't compare S8 with OP5, with whom you have to compare it, OP3, OP3T?
They are comparing S8 with the best phones (flagships) of other companies.
I don't consider this phone worthy to battle among these phones,it's more of a phone to battle against the Xiaomi mi 6,Huawei honor 9 and ZTE nubia Z17 considering they have similar specs.It' should be a battle between low cost affordable flagship,not real ones.
The phone is lackng all major aspects of a flagship: Amazing camera with OIS,QHD screen,waterproof,great heat management (this phone doesn't have it),wirelesss charging and fast quick one.The reason why this phone is fast is the FHD screen that doesn't need to push pixels like QHD screen suffer.Same strategy used by iPhone so no wonder it will have high speed performance.
Romie Lee, 29 Jun 2017But G6 isn't a flagship though considering its soc.The G6 it is the flagship of LG, because is the best thing that LG has to offer right now. At least until V30 appear.
The same as OP5 is the flagship of One Plus and S8 of Samsung.
So, it doesn't matter that they cost less (OP5) or have worst specs (G6), they still are considered flagships of that company.
Perfotmance score from S8 isn't great, actually poor performance for a supposed flagship device shame on you Samsung
I don't know about you, but when it comes to phones the first thing I am interested in is design. And if that design will cost me a little more cash (if I can afford it of course) I will gladly pay. Also because, for me, is like saying thank you in some way to the design team of that phone and that means that somebody "hit their heads to the wall" to try and make something different.
I am not a fan of Samsung. But at least they are trying to inovate when it comes to design (look at S6 Edge, now S8).
Up to some point I liked Apple, but now their phones looks so outdated. They are just sleeping on their good software and some little changes here and there. Not to mention the One Plus, which in my opinion has no originality, is just copying other phones design.
