500 is too much. I'd rather pay 800 to have all this.
So, as expected that secondary camera is more like a marketing trick to fool potential customers than a real value. S8 is the clear winner as alternative and better for the price, even the S7, Mate 9, P10 Plus, hi OP 3T, etc. The Mate 10 need some time to drop it's price. Still waiting what Honor and Huawei will brings before the end of the year more affordable, and anything else that can be released. Bye bye 5T.
I don't think OnePlus understands the problem with their release cycle. People will be buying the OnePlus devices only when there is an absolute necessary to buy. For a casual buyers who want to upgrade their devices to latest and want the cheapest and greatest, they might skip these devices.
Reason being, I wont be buying 6 since i know that the better version is coming in the form of T version. I won't be buying the T version since i know that the chipset is going to be released in few months and the main version is going to change. The cycle might continue and even settle for a different company.
I think it'll be better for them to have two different series like the s series and note series of Galaxy. So far not a good strategy from my point of view.
