Ok I must admit, that half notch/half bezel option looks quite nice. Well at least on the home screen with a colored wallpaper

- Price is slightly cheaper than flagships
- Stock Android
- Very Fast charger
- Fastest QSD 845 SoC
- Good screen
- Good build quality
- Great front camera

- Very fast memory and storage
- Price is more expensive than 1+3, and much more expensive than OnePlus One
- Not AndroidOne
- Small battery capacity
- Poor music/speaker performance
- NOTCH and 19:9 (letterboxing makes device unnecessarily larger)
- Bad build materials (glass back is prone to shattering)
- No IP68 protection
- Poor rear camera
- 3.5mm lacks QuadDAC, USB-C is not USB 3.1 but very slow USB 2.0 spec

Kangal Rating: 7/10.
Keep your OnePlus 3/Samsung S7 if you still have it. If you must upgrade then there's the option of Nokia 7 Plus and Xiaomi Mi A2 for cheaper, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer and the Black Shark for similar price, and the Samsung S9+ or Huawei P20 Pro for slightly more money.
Oneplus 6 got software update which includes improved loudspeaker performance. Please update the audio review.

Finding a fully functional and stable community Rom is a rare feat and even less for Huawei phones.
If stock android is your thing then Huawei themes are quite deep and easily find stock theme to change the entire phone to stock Android look. Second option is to install a launcher.
However if it just about that wannabe geek obsession with changing roms every week then I agree Huawei is not an option.

Its not impossible thing to pack high capacity batteries. Only if OnePlus had intention to include higher capacity, while they started build designs. I don't think price for slightly higher capacity battery would be of steep incline in cost.

Anonym, 10 Jun 2018https://www.xda-developers.com/huawei-stop-providing-bootloader-unlock-codes/Yep, luckily Xiaomi and Asus continue providing the codes or allowing unlock your bootloader too. Even Exynos from Samsung can be unlocked, not the snapdragon NA, Latin American and chinese variants. Idem with LG, EU variants can be unlocked but sadly not dual SIM asian variants.

Plus, the 3rd-party support has always been not so good due to the Kirin SoC.
A few months ago I would have completely agreed with you, but now (due to this boneheaded repressive measure taken by Huawei) I wholeheartedly recommend to stay away from their products. OnePlus has many faults, but the fact is they allow you to instantly unlock the bootloader and run 3rd-party ROMs without even loosing your warranty -- now that is freedom and the ethos of OSS!
alucardnos, 10 Jun 2018Mate 10 has smaller screen, also less ram and worst CPU. All of these make up for the better b... moreThe display area of the Mate 10 is: 95,863 square centimeters and the OP 6 has a display area of (98,437 - notch area) square centimeters so both are almost equal.
The Mate 10 AL10 variant has 6Gb RAM 128 ROM and same battery life as the 4Gb.
The SoC SD845 is more modern and powerful about all in the GPU, but both are 10nm based, so the power consumption depends of the number of transistors more than anything else, something only known buy the manufacturer.
We only can test them together using the same apps from 100% to 0% and compare. But I bet in this case, above all, if the Mate 10 has better battery life that is what people are reporting, is because of the size of the battery 4000 mAh in the Mate 10 vs 3300 in the OP 6.
