    can't even think of methods that will get the SOT below 3hrs. Maybe some heavy multitasking, streaming, decoding, with every possible module fully stressed.

    you guys remember what Android Authority also said? even cache'd site got removed: http://imgur.com/POBySl3

    I like how you pick the worst point in every review. Why not quote Anandtech on battery life. They did a scientific test on battery life too. But I think you only like the display section of that review.

    Dash charge provides 65% in 30mins which is at par with Oneplus's claims of 60%.

    Did you watch the video if you did what's your point
    Did you watch MKBHD'S if you did what's your point
    They all got the same:rolleyes:
    Maybe that's why OP killed the phones ability to hold apps in memory, to get he extra juice.
    Didn't you every wonder why they would have 6GB of ram and not allow you to use it?:rolleyes:

    If your referring to me the X20 has proved itself to be better than the 810, you buy thought was the biz
    And as I said 6 1/2 hrs sot with 22% left.
    I bet you wish you could get near that don't you.:D
    The Ignorant bias against mtek is comical I won't be long before one of the big boys uses one.

    This doesn't appear to be the case from other reviewers. Why are you being so negative? [​IMG]

    Even the X10 isn't bad. It is the lack of good support that really gets me though. Snapdragons are a bit easier to dev for, hence why there are more ROMs out there for Snapdragon over Mediatek. [​IMG]

    You should really stop to base all your rants and complaints on reviews and videos.
    Everyone uses the phone differently. If you have something to complain than base that on your own usage of the phone otherwise the only right to complain has the reviewer himself. Get yourself an opinion, thats absolutely fine, but don't try to create thousands of threads complaining about the phone without actually owning it..
    I go through your posts and all I see is, "I dont like that, OP didnt do that right, they never do" bla bla.

    Thanks in advance...

    Malidan likes to give good critique. Im sure there are lots of opinion on this SOT. But i agree on the fact that "it couldve had a bit bigger capacity". Like 3.5k mAh or higher.

    Oh well. #ThugLife

    It could have been higher capacity. but as shown in cases with the Robin, it is possible for even a smaller size battery to get eh job done. 2,680 mAH and gets 4h SOT on Average.

    "Good critique" not based on his own experiences, but based on a video?
    Sorry, I would never call that a good critique on a phone.

    I agree though. 3.5k mAh would have been dope.

    Of course its possible. I dont even hate it. But i'm not really a hater. (Not even iDevices or Samsung).
    Op3 is rlly sleek and i think its a nice phone.
    But even if it did had 3hrs SOT, what can we do about it? I never ran out of battery so far. (... so good) .
    My mean SOT is about 5+hrs. Never ever below 4. Probably not even below 4 and a half. So yeah.

    Would you recommend I get one of them as a side device? Honestly, I feel I am no better than a "critic" without ever having used one. [​IMG]

    So please just don't buy any SD820 device :) You don't deserve that kind of high quality SoC. Go to buy some Exynos or MT stuff and be happy with it.

    True.
    Also, critics are just people with an opinion. This community only consists 100% of smartphone developer and software engineers (incl the marketing skills needed).

    On my recommendations; its just a good phone and certainly on my "recommendation-list". There arent many direct competitors to be honest. All my pro's and con's made me conclude this OP3 is just a no-nonsense phone for the right price and excellent highquality. And the things where i thought OP3 stood out made me buy it. Still no regrets.

    I have seen many videos and the figure always changes, so you can only repeat what someone says.
    Mkbhd said we concentrate on the bad things rather than the good and he is right, because it the bad things that will spoil your enjoyment of the device not the good.

    Much ado about nothing. Judging from it's behavior re Oneplus over the last couple weeks, Android Authority is in the business of clutching at straws. Must be kicking itself that it wasn't first to shout "ram management issue!" from the housetops. You've got to show some real dedication to a hoped-for result to achieve a 3hr SOT with a HD amoled panel and a 3AH battery, regardless of SOC.

    This :)


    Nothing wrong with it, just wondering, why spend the time reading and watching reviews, always looking for a negative review and joining a forum about a phone you'll never buy, it doesn't makes sense to me?
