    Wait for op5 to come out.
    If u like it buy.
    Otherwise buy op3T
    Best part, when op5 comes out op3T price will drop too.
    Will help in making a decision when the device comes out.

    Instead go for S8 plus if its in ur budget, coz Samsung's display and camera are the world's best, OP will not be even close in this 2 terms but in all other departments OP is mind blowing.

    Wait for the op5 as you are not in a hurry. If it's within your budget go for it without giving it a second thought. If not you can buy the 3t ata lower price.

    If u can wait, it's best to wait for op5 as it'll have the latest specs and hopefully an ip67 or 68 rating.
    If you care about that stuff. Although sd 821 still performs like a champ and in real life you won't see much of a difference.
    But if the rumors about dual cameras and stuff is real, you are gonna miss out on the action. And the new flagship will get updates faster and more frequently.
    And going by OnePlus' track record, OnePlus 3T will be ignored much like op2 and opx.
    Choose wisely.
    And yes op5 will get a price bump.
    probably it'll cost u around 500 bucks.

    As you have said you are in no rush, you should wait until the price information is released for OP5.

    OP3, OP3T are great phones. If OP5 is too expensive or for some other reason you don't like the styling or whatever, buy one of the others. They will likely be discounted at that point.

    Just consider the norm these days appears to drop OS updates for older models, so you might expect the OP5 to have a longer shelf life.

    I was in your shoes about a week or so ago. I could have easily waited on the OP5 but having never owned a oneplus device I decided to buy the oneplus 3t. I don't regret it one bit. I'll probably skip the 5 and get the next one after it.

    I was in the same situation. But I got the 3T used and couldn't be happier. Yes camera & screen can be a bit better but never have I used such speed. In my case I was fed up with my LG V20 (lag, burn in screen, horrible battery) then I went to S7 (too small, battery worse than LG). So I went for the beast! I didn't wait the 2 months because of my OCD! [e]1f601[/e] but maybe you might have some more will power.

    Good luck!

    I'm sure you could have just used the search and find an answer but nonetheless, If you really can't wait, just do what I did. Order the 3T and use it until the 5 comes out. And if you don't like the 5 just keep the 3T. And if you do like the 5, sell the 3T in exchange for money to purchase the 5. More than likely you can't sell it for stock price but you can get pretty close to what you spent on it and just add a few extra bucks.

    I don't think Oneplus will drop price for OP3T. You have an example of OP3 when 3T was launched. Price drop will happen after few months post OP5 launch. As far I know it would cost you somewhere around 40k (Approx $480).
