    The only test that matters is a teardown and the reviewer said there is no waterproofing materials.
    That is the long and short if it.

    You forgot to mention about the benchmark cheating that op keeps on doing even after getting so much backlash earlier

    iphone cons:
    locked down OS
    excessive prices
    fashion statement for kids
    apple like to design for use with other Apple products
    all iPhones feel the need to have a different cable
    removed the headphone jack
    they pretty much look the same in design and OS gui.
    no customisation
    no one screams/cheers when you say you own a new iphone
    no sdcard
    no dual sim?

    iPhone pros:

    water resistance
    OIS
    you get to sync your music from iTunes.....
    you get to say you own a new iPhone
    it works like any other phone
    can fit in your pocket
    ok I'm struggling to make up items in this list
    so I'll fill it out with these random
    words to make it look longer
    than it needs to be


    oneplus cons:

    it looks like an iPhone
    some people reported random issues
    no water resistance
    no gimmick features
    no sdcard
    wish it had mhl support
    EIS (problem for some but it's not a real issue)

    oneplus pros:

    price is lower for specs at flagship level
    no bloatware
    no gimmick features
    its fast and responsive
    8gb makes it future proof
    open source OS
    customizable on every element of OS
    rooting and building own OS isn't frowned upon
    dual SIM
    headphone jack
    some people reported random issues (this is here as well because this helps get them fixed quickly)
    standardized port!!
    otg

    bored of this list now, add to it if u wish

    only waterproof can't make a phone higher or lower. oneplus 5 has extra amazing features in a very cheaper cost which is not possible in other phones

    These tests only suggested there is a good level of quality and precision in the hardware. Good job! This does not mean it is water proof. No seal no good. Do the test again after a few weeks. A bag of rice may be your best friend.

    I have 2 work IPhones ( just not my thing) I'm an android man and have been almost from the start.

    OP5, No the camera is not good enough, too many issues and it is overprice in the current market.
    I'm currently sitting in a bargain priced Le Max2 and waiting to see what the V30 brings with the camera. If its not better than the S8, I will grab a plus( Exynos) it will be only - £50 more than the OP5 by then current only £80 more.

    if your only concern is the camera....which is a great camera btw.

    buy a camera for camera jobs and phones for phone jobs.

    It's 2017 my man and most people no longer have a camera worth jack and are totally dependant on what their mobile brings to the table.

    The camera is the no.1 spec on top tier phone for modern day consumer's not milliseconds of speed, because it highly portable and multifunctional.
    I made this same statement earlier in the thread and this is why OP's reference to the camera is all over the box.
    Good camera's ?
    S8/ Plus
    Note 7
    Pixel
    HTC
    LG G6
    S7
    V20
    iPhone 7/Plus
    Mate
    Honor
    Sony XZP
    Etc
    OP cameras are too inconsistent and it usually takes them the life span of the device to get it to decent at best.

    You see all the reviews and all round the only thing that challenges the S8 is the S7 and the Note 7 that's about to make a comeback.
    If the price is right I may even get one of those.

    mine takes.good photos. I don't see what the problem is. a better camera isn't going to make you look any better when your snap chatting. [e]1f602[/e]

    And about hacking scene, actually Apple world are being abandoned for jailbreak, few of my friend is already gone to Android and furthermore oneplus due to the fact that it's really easy to root this kind of phone [e]1f44c[/e]

    I don't Snapchat and the camera is barley better than that of the 3T's overall.
    No OIS is a major mistake you will find out every time you try to record 4K or take a lowlight shot without a tripod or a stabilised stick like the sponsored reviewers have been doing;)

    I understand these complaints. but really? OIS isn't a must and doesn't effect the camera quality... just hold you phone still.
    4k video , u only have a 1080p screen on the phone so doesn't make a bit of difference unless u copying them to a computer with a 4k monitor, , and that stabilization can be improved via software, so again not really a camera issue.
    sponsored reviewers using a tripod to review the camera ? and? that's a good reviewer imho. if your judging a camera you want the least human interference to find the best possible shot.

    Lol dude please OIS don't effect the picture quality, use 1080P.
    Some of us have 2k screens, TV's or 4k TV's, some even have 4k screens.
    Even on a 1080P a 2k/ 4k image looks cleaner, if you have no appreciation for quality so be it.:tearsofjoy:

    This is what settling truly sounds like, if you added £30 to you purchase in the UK you can get a S8 and no settling along all the other goodies it has inside.

    it doesn't effect picture quality. it effects stabilization...

    no it really doesn't.

    maybe you should stick to your apple junk or go buy that s8 then and stop trolling the oneplus forum since you clearly have no interest in buying one and only to try tell others how bad you think it is.
