Mclaren optimizations indeed lower the porformance lol. I don't know why people think that a car company can optimize a phone.

wake up, China is no longer the old slump producing knock off items
Kangal, 18 Dec 2018To be honest, its not worth it.
You can get the S9/S9+ for cheaper in the USA now. Whilst in ... moreDisclosure: I have a OnePlus 5T.
1. "Better by far, to buy an ex-flagship where you get..." a battery that only holds 80% of its charge because it's been used so much?
2. Where I live, the McLaren 6T is over $350 cheaper than the base model Note9. Both officially and in the gray market.
3. The OnePlus 5 looks ANCIENT compared to this - the design is a shameless iPhone 7 Plus copy and paste job. Yes, you get a headphone jack, but the camera gives less than ideal photos (even with a ported Google Camera APK). And there's AptX HD and LDAC Codes which give exactly the same audio fidelity for all YouTube and Netflix content.
This review is pointless. You guys already did the 6T. This is just the 6T with faster charging and 10GB of RAM. You could have just done a reaction article of this phone rather than put it through its paces.

I already heard of a lawsuit against Samsung because of a Note 9. It's just the beginning. And they should have crashed and burn, but people are too stupid and keep buying their phones. You just encourage them if you still buy phones from Samsung even after that huge Note 7 scandal. They even withdrew the Note 7 from the Note phones history, so that people would forget. But people are sooo stupid nowadays that it's not even funny...
To be honest, its not worth it.
You can get the S9/S9+ for cheaper in the USA now. Whilst in the international/grey market, these OnePlus devices are sold much higher than the MSRP, where vendors charge HIGHER than a Local Note9. So its doubly not worth it.
Besides there's little-to-no practical (real-world) upgrades this gets you over a OnePlus 5 which is almost 2 years old now. Its better for people to not buy this phone, otherwise, it encourages OnePlus to continue what they're doing: raise prices, reduce practicality.
Better by far, to buy an ex-flagship where you get 95% of current devices for 50% of the cost. Or at least hold out for 2-6 months, so that you can get a QSD 855 phone that was designed with Android 9.0 Pie system (you know a proper upgrade).
Just having a beer, 17 Dec 2018That Chinese nobody pushes system updates much faster, than the superb Korean company. How man... moreI would rather wait for a polished version of Pie instead of getting a rushed job, that's just me though.
And a phone from 2017 that still has a flawless UI, I'm in no need to upgrade to Android 9, maybe the chinese phones need the latest versions to stay competitive???
That phone is absolutely gorgeous. Would be amazing with an IP68 rating.
As if the reviewer thinks the twilight Mate 20 looks better than this. That's crazy thinking.
I still don't understand why the need for these crazy 20 / 30/ 50 watt chargers?? My S8 will charge from 5% to 100% in an hour as well... I don't get it.

How many devices made by Samsung have pie now? I don't mean beta version! And also raw power is much better as well.
While you have the Chinese, they actually made a name for themselves and I have heard only food about one+. There isn't that many with bad experience. And the price tag? Special edition is cheaper than Samsung flagship!
