First expression on New OnePlus remote via OnePlus 5 Midnight Black

    Hi All,

    I received today my new OnePlus remote. Ordered day before yesterday. Impressed by the speed of delivery.

    From my stand point here are some pros and cons

    Pros:
    1. dedicated Netflix button along with YouTube.
    2. Seperate Mute button
    3. Input select button
    4. Better grip
    5. Smooth button clicks

    Cons:
    1. No Charging ... it's AAA battery supported
    2. Plastic body. Kinda missed the rich feel of old remote
    3. No settings button ( it's a must have button, specially when you want to change picture quality in middle of the video or etc )

    i think i will stick to old remote i guess and will use new one for backup .

    Let me know what you think about it.

    in this case I am settling with old one, so can't say never Settle this time ;)

    Hi guys today i received New Remote of Oneplus TV,
    & i must say i am very disappointed of the overall look and feel of it, very cheap.

    below are the images of new remote with old remote and some pros & cons on looks and feel. functional review i will add later.

    Pros -
    - Netflix and YouTube dedicated buttons.
    - Mute button
    - Volume rocker on top instead of side

    Cons -
    - Made of cheap plastic.
    - Have to use that old AAA Batteries.
    - Buttons material - some kind of rubber and it's Dust Magnet.
    - Matt finish plastic no glossy area like old remote.
    - Uses old Infrared technology, no Bluetooth connectivity for remote.


    Hence I didn't like it at all. very Disappointing #oneplus

    You can use Google Assistant to open up settings menu.
