Curved screen just why?

    I was just looking at that phone too. Like you said, carrier support is the big question. The phone seems to check all the essential boxes, and the no-notch full display is just an icing on the cake. It is too bad that the cameras don't come with OIS though. That stopped me from considering it, personally. I do love that you get to use the superior rear cameras for selfies though.

    What is unnecessary for you is necessary for others. Not interested in the thread just don't read. I belive it is mega important for others. This is forum chat and it's idea is talking about the phone. Stop forcing people to stop buying etc. Just go away and read something else.

    Why is my question. Not "how".

    Why so much loyalty?

    So you have been spending your money in buying best value devices. That is not a matter of being loyal to the brand. Don't confuse the two.

    Did you study philosophy? I said decent, not best value

    Now if you really hate the curved screen phones, the regular 7 or the 6T (if in North America since the regular 7 is not available there) still seems like a good alternative to me. Still great phones.

    Also, if you don't hate Samsung, at least in the USA, Best Buy still has the $200 off on unlocked Samsung phones if you activate the phones with 3 of the major US carriers. The S10e unlocked variant can be had now for $550 with Snapdragon 855, no curved display, reliable fingerprint scanner, and much more manageable small size. And all that OnePlus is missing like the IP68, wireless charging, and headphone jack are all there too. Also Samsung Pay is the only Samsung service that is actually really worth using.

    Having a lot of choices is good, but I do agree with the notion that smartphones are being released just too frequently. The capabilities and the designs have been improved so much that the manufacturers are trying to entice people to buy with spec sheet war, or radical design to grab buyer attention.

    My reply is selfish? Please explain how.

    You believe that because you have used Oneplus for a while that they should only make devices that satisfy YOUR personal preferences? Now THAT is selfish!

    Did you buy previous Oneplus devices to help the company out or because they were most suited to your needs at the time? Do you believe that Oneplus somehow 'owe you' because you've bought their devices in the past? THAT is pretty selfish isn't it?

    Grow up! If you don't like a phone with a curved screen - DON'T BUY IT!
    What point do you think there is in creating an unnecessary thread moaning about it? Oneplus gonna abandon curved screen in order to keep YOU happy? Dream on.

    Philosophy? What has that got to do with our conversation? Again confused.

    Decent, great, whatever you want to call it. None of that changes the fact that you bought phones from this brand only because their pricing appealed to you for what was on offer. This is NOT brand loyalty.

    Sit back and evaluate properly with a cool head.

    Oneplus, please stop this shit with the curved screen or I will buy an iPhone 11 Pro Max or a Galaxy S10+.

    The price is also not a flagship killer price compared to Samaung Galaxy S10+ that I can get much cheaper than Oneplus 7 Pro in my country. Did I mention the much better cameras in Galaxy S10+? GCam Fotos on the Oneplus 7 Pro are not that good, too. Even Xiaomi Mi9 and Zenfone 6 make better photos with GCam than Oneplus 7 Pro. Besides my unit has dust under the camera glass.

    Galaxy S10+ and especially the Galaxy Note 10+ have a much less curved screen. At least, it is better than nothing.

    Oneplus 7(T) ist not an option for me. I want all the features of the 7(T) Pro. I bought the Oneplus 7 Pro because of the very good performance and becauce of the very good mobile phone reception.

    Buy another phone, it is clear that you do not want a oneplus. Go cry to the brand forum of your new phone.

    There is no other option for me than Oneplus 7 Pro. I do not like Samsung phones because of the performance, Bloatware, Knox and that you lose the warranty if you trip the Knox counter etc. I would be happy if Oneplus would stop with this curved screen trend and would build flat screen phones again. I bought many Oneplus phones. My main problem is the curved screen.

    You can't dislike them that much when you say this....
    Also this is a forum, there's nobody here from oneplus to read your comments, so there's no need for you to spam multiple threads.

    I also don't like the exaggerated curve of the op7pro screen, that's why I didn't buy it. I also don't like holes in the note9 and 10 screen, that's why I didn't buy them.

    Wait, and if you can't, buy a cheap one until there is one you like.

    The problem is how you say things, not what you say.

    The Note 9 does not have any notch. Maybe you are right, I should be more polite. What phone do you have currently?

    I said hole, not notch. I don't like neither one nor the other, I prefer pop-up camera.

    I continue with op5 that works perfectly. I almost bought the op7pro when it came out, but I waited to see what people were saying about the screen and when I saw the comments about ghost touches and the reflections of the edges I was clear that it would not be my next phone.

    I like it a lot, but it's not for me.
