Zooming into the OP6T images they look awful

It looks great with the premium glass and curved screen but it's very slippery so I put a case and now the premium feel is gone and it looks just like any other mid-range phone with the case. But anyways I didn't buy it for the looks but because features and cameras wise it's the best damn phone at 25000 INR with timely Android updates being the only con which I don't care much.
Without a headphone jack, all of these phones are useless to me, phone makers these days don't even care about what customers really want, and customers are too lazy to bother protesting by simply not buying these useless phones.
Wired 3.5 jack >>>> BT regardless of standard
What is the different between the long term and short term by GSMarena?
Nothing useful was mentioned.
It's like all about the specs instead of the their experience for this phone.
I have the 6T since day one, this review got most of the described parts right, but really lost focus imo. At least half of it is like the reviewer is still at day one, or before,wondering if its right to get it. I think the ppl that are interested on long term reviews are past the dilemmas of Kardashian selfies being the only thing that actually matters and face unlock should be able to protect gvrmnt secrets...
Some ppl dont live with the sole life purpose of taking Instagram selfies and some of them actually need flagship specs. Atm, the mobile industry forces everyone to pay 1000$ just ta have the optimal 4-5 camera combo. That or you must settle with midrange specs.
This is malefic dilemma, fabricated by phone companies in order to justify $1000+ price tags.
Gsm arena has been a part of this since day one, dedicating half of it review on phone camera and menționînd less and lars the main phone features.
I am disgusted and find it pathetic to completely ignore how a phone behaves in calls, its ringing, signal reception, dual sim functionalites, special smartphone functions, GPS quality etc All you will ever hear is about its cameras, i am male, i take about 15selfies per year, its less than 1% of my concern. Many others like me are led to believe that this is the only thing that matters, because that is what every review is about...
Meh, my two cents:
The battery in real life use is better than the gsmarena rate it, in comparison to other phones, of similar rating.
The UP fp is imo the best there is and i only realised this in the long run. Since it can see through glass, it can also see through water and for sweaty hands, this is a life saver!
Having to wait 1/4 of the second more is much better than having to swipe hand and sensor again and again. If you input the FP of the same finger many times, to cover all angles, in dark, it nearly never fails! This is proof of the superficial job they did with those longterm reviews. Most of 6T users already know that...
Another example is the gcam port, it literally changes everything, since half of the review is for camera, i wonder how did they miss the opportunity to mention a thing that makes the camera two times better...
Wifi and bluetooth reception are stellar, ringing feature loud enough.GPS mediocre,

Interesting that I received the 2019.3 Security patch just days before this post. Doubt it changed anything, but I get the feeling they are trying to really catch up on that and be closer to Google on this. Especially since my OnePlus 5 got the Pie + 2019.1 update in late March (which I wasn't expecting ANY update after owning Samsung, Sony & LG handsets previously).

^This, so much. I absolutely HATE the glass back design regardless of whether the phone has wireless charging or not, but whoever thought that putting another glass to get cracked on a phone with no functionality whatsoever just for the """premium feel""" meme deserves to be kicked in the balls real hard.
The biggest issue with OnePlus 6T is the removal of the notification LED.

Best all round phone out there!
It´s no the best but it´s pretty good at everything. Nice design, good amoled display, good cameras, great perfomance....Oxygen OS is perfect, praised by most reviewrs out there as the best Android skin....
miles ahead better than any Xiaomi on the market
I'm a OnePlus 6 user and from my experience I can say that it is not a flagship killer phone. Speed is not only thing for a flagship phone. Good Camera is also a matter.
OnePlus is just a gaming phone.
For this price OnePlus 6 has useless Secondary Depth sensor where many companies midrange has useful lens.
Room light or low light Camera is too bad.
I'm so disappointed and hope it is my last OnePlus phone.

2. I need SD card because I have captured memories for many years of favorite places, people and things and some are even not in this world, I have a huge collection of music too which I definitely need in my phone as I cant carry my computer everywhere.
3. If I ever get drenched in sudden rain while riding my bike I have to be assured that my phone will still function.
4. If you don't have wireless charging then why go for a glass back simply go for a metal back which is more durable than the glass.
5. It definitely needs a useful secondary camera which they have addressed with the OP7.
Anonymous, 03 May 2019No headphone jack pass not big of deal
No SD card pass not big of deal since storage is big ... moreBoth of them are big deals for other people that's why Samsung is still sticking to the headphone jack. If the original OP6 had a headphone jack as looks as good as the 6t then there's no reason removing it. Just like the notch all others are following this Apple bullshit of taking out features like the headphone jack. Tomorrow they will take out the SIM slots itself and force you to use a dongle even for that.
Micro SD card slots are good for storing the memories you captured with the phone or your music library when the inbuilt storage fills up. Again not having a Micro SD card is Apple bullshit.
Anonymous, 03 May 2019The Google pixel has 3&4 has mega city notch and costs twice more, why are you not angry a... moreStop trolling when did I say I'm not angry about Pixel or the Pixel being a better device than OP or other brand. I did not even mention about the OP6t notch. Looks like you are drunk or posting in sleep.
"The missing headphone jack is almost excusable in our book because at this point there aren't many smartphone makers that do still include the port in their flagships."
For that price, it is INEXCUSABLE. It must be there as STANDARD regardless of price. There is MORE THAN ENOUGH SPACE in OnePlus 6T's design to have the jack at the top if they "can't do" it at the bottom!! Statements like this "excusable" reason "encourages" manufacturers to drop 3.5mm jack quicker!!
No :1 developer brand. Quality is top notch. If you want other gimmicks go spend 300-400$ more. Compare with the rubbish F1 ? Come on !! You can't compare BMW with Tata :)
In my country, the 6T and Note9 have the same prices. Same prices!
Yet the Note9 has insanely more features than the 6T. SD card, 3.5mm jack with AKG earphones, stereo speakers, IP68, pen, 2K AMOLED with no stupid notch, tele camera, MUCH better primary camera, wireless charging, 4000mAh battery, more sensors, more colors, man so many features I'm tired of even mentioning them.
OnePlus are nothing but mid-range phones from A to Z, just with flagship SoC. And that's it. I don't know why are they a thing.
