The only thing that's a shame is that they didn't seriously improve camera software. That low light lens might come in handy if OnePlus or developers improve the app and I hope they do. Maybe OnePlus is thinking in the long run, put in the good hardware now and improve it with user feedback.
Sorry if a bit out of topic, but, is HTC U11 Plus review in the pipeline?
It's great to see GSM Arena comes up with reviews for H2 flagship phones, from Samsung to Apple to Google Huawei LG even OnePlus etc. Why not endeavor more and squeeze the HTC phone in there? ;-)
Further, can do a shootout.
Thanks a lot in advance!!

The same logic as audio jack removal. Who need it? Nobody!!! (Actually needed both). Still low resolution pentile amoled screen. FHD+ is equivalent of HD+ here. Camera is bad. Is thiat thing worth to call "flagship killer" or even flagship? No. Averagd chinaphone. And too expensive.
Next question is - when they will find another security flaws and personal data steal,? I'm pretty sure - soon and not even once. Will they find another "natural effect" again to decline warranty cases? Will see, but very possible.
Zero improvement in camera department. Just marketing gimmiks with the secondary cam, nothing else.

AnonD-5981, 20 Nov 2017I don't think OnePlus understands the problem with their release cycle. People will be buying ... moreSo you won't be able to buy phone from any company..
You won't buy s8 plus because note 8 is coming
Won't buy the g6 coz of v30
Sony updates big annually. So even they are a no go..
Leaving xiaomi. I don't think you'll be satisfied with their cameras...
No micro sd slot
No ip68 or 67
No stereo speakers
No 1Gigabit LTE
No QHD+ screen. It is bigger now a bit.
1 micron pixel rear cam
No HDR support
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.
