Seems like GSMArena is changing every day. I personally like this feature. It is like an experienced review of a phone when it is used everyday.
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2018The very fact that gsmarena had to address and acknowledge so many of the problems and issues ... moreI really don't understand so many people kissing chinese OP phones.
Really2 don't...What's the fuss all about?!
Beside cheap price and fast update (Oreo has been cancelled for OP5),
there's nothing to write home about its quality: cheap chinese design, lacklustre audio,
and most crucial, crappy camera compared to Samsung, HTC or Pixel .
All three more expensive than OP but you get quality, instead of so called value, for money!
Display issues blown out of proportion by internet?? really GSMARENA?? No one will complain, or learn to live with it, if they are paying as much as cheap chinese phones..If you are paying as much as a S8/Note8, iPhoneX , you expect the display is atleast half decent as the competition. I know this is your perception, but you cannot advocate mediocrity of LG and Google through this article.
At around $1000, the blue shift is not blown out of proportion.
I only wish you reviewers were not so biased. You guys use a phone for a couple of weeks and then move on, why should you care specially that you do not pay for your units?
this solidify my view on phone camera, pro control are useless. If your auto mode really great, people will just use that. lets safe pro for Pro camera
Not true for the WiFi networks, I transferred via USB c from my LG g5 and it didn't remember a single WiFi point. Please don't post false information in your articles.
I did not enjoy the format of this article. Articles like this should tell us how a device holds up after some time and I believe three weeks is a short time to subjectively use and know about a phone. I suggest it should be after six months to give us these articles.
What would be really appreciated is that, you can borrow someoneĀs elseĀs phone which has been used for that long. A phone like that has amassed enough clutter to be a better gauge of its worth.
A long term review shoub be that - one which lets us if a phone is really worth it to those who have held back purchasing one.
Apple's phones are boring in my opinion. With all the icons all over the screen. Lack of customization. They are for those people who just want a status device and not a real device. Apple's phones aren't innovative by any means. They are uninspiring and thoughtless. Sure they are "faster" because Apple makes their own chips for their phones and they are optimized for their phones. Qualcomm, etc makes chips that most other manufactures use for their phones and they aren't optimized for a specific phone. Apple isn't a innovator anymore, they just crank out junk for the masses.
Good job gsmarena , that's a good start I pretty like the sot time we can have a idea of what we'll have.
Dear Google, please choose glass or metal back.
Both together make phone ugly.
This ideas ar great, showing the long term use if a device through daily scenarios.
Regarding the Pixel... it may have have all the better and smooth experience but in a trend of 18:9 18.5:9 or even a 19.5 it's way back and it's a major setback. That's a imersive experience, coming back to the good old 16:9 wouldn't cut it anymore
The very fact that gsmarena had to address and acknowledge so many of the problems and issues in this review reported by owners about the pixel 2XL is reason enough not to buy for $1300 here in Canada... I'll wait for the oneplus6....
