    Life with a cracked screen has not been so bad.



    *I will go more in-depth with something if asked.
    *Also, please excuse my speech. I was nervous and did not make a script for this.


    I will make a thread about this new way to distribute invites soon.

    Special Thanks to @Sicklidz for donating my first $1 toward getting this screen fixed. My goal is to reach $150 as soon as possible.

    $151.71 has been received so far. thank you.

    I HAVE REACHED MY GOAL!!!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE! WILL UPDATE SOON.
    ----------------------------
    Flawless (zero issues) before 38R !
    Now, I am on 44S. 38R issues seem fixed!

    Call Quality - 11/10. Hands down the best I've ever had the pleasure of using to call someone.

    Camera (Front) - I rarely use front facing cameras. This one seems a bit average.

    Camera (Rear) - Pretty darn awesome for a phone camera. If you know what you're doing, you can have professional looking photographs. WINK WINK;)

    Touch Response - Touches register immediately. All fingers are recognized.

    Audio Output (Speaker) - Very loud & clear. Distorts sound at about 3/4 full volume if song is bass heavy (no big deal). I wish it were stereo, but it doesn't really matter. It does its job better than most phones.

    Audio Output (3.5mm) - Super solid high quality sound. So far, I tested this using my Logitech Z506 speakers and Skullcandy Titan headphones. Such a good device for hooking up to your speakers. I find that sound output is amazing with the Meridian Player. That is where I get the BEST results. Meridian Player is so underrated.

    Screen Brightness - it gets bright when i need it to and it gets dim when i am in bed. I love it. if it could get a little dimmer, that'd be great. it holds up pretty well under direct sunlight. zero complaints.

    Ergonomics - Slim and easy to hold even with my small hands. it fits in the pockets but is a bit uncomfortable (again, I'm small). This phone is a little slippery so keep a good grip on it.

    Looks - Oh yeah, this thing is hot.

    Gaming - Fluid gaming experience. Super short load times.

    Signal Strength - Both wifi and network connections are strong wherever I go. I use AT&T's network.

    Battery Life - Lasts all day. Most of the time it lasts me about a day and half.

    My only problem with the hardware is the raised screen. YOU MUST GET A CASE!

    Ow... I probably wouldn't use the phone if it were cracked. I'd get the screen replaced as soon as I could!

    Only if OnePlus could replace the screen quickly...

    Thought if you cracked the screen it would break the digitizer? Otherwise, nice review. Bummer about your screen though.
