    I'm also one of the crazies with a OnePlus 3 who are upgrading (I'm passing the OnePlus 3 on so it worked out), I also ordered the bumper case, how is it? any opinions? how much thickness does it add to the phone?

    How is the cell strength/LTE? I use an at&t mvno and the cell signal was not good on my OnePlus 3. My 6p got a lot better signal.

    It's been pretty good, nothing mayor from previous model.
    But it all depends on where you are and what sim you use.

    Not much but feels really nice and makes the phone a lot sturdier.

    Battery is a lot better than 3, but about the same as 3T.
    I took the picture with my moto g5 plus.

    No. That's not all it depends on. My 6p always got a better signal no matter where I was, compared to the OnePlus 3. I hate to hear the signal isn't any better. I hope that's not the case.

    is it just me or does OxygenOS not have the status-bar slider for brightness like the OPO had? and what about the tool dock in the tray bar, where is the option to set a left or right side quick access swipe down?

    13 pages of reading bullshit but no photos from the camera posted. Guess the 5 is a bad *** camera phone.

    Well everytime I try using the upload a file option it keeps saying the file is too big and can't be viewed.

    Also I didn't want to do a camera review since I mostly use my camera for snapchat, Instagram and the occasional friends/family moments, I feel like I wouldn't be able to do the camera justice and would rather have someone more suited to talk about the 5's camera.

    Nice out but I guess it makes sense. Thanks. I checked another post from Canada and the photos do look good.

    how long did you charge your battery the first time? Most phones need like a special amount of charge the first time around.

    I would recommend using the phone right away when you get it, the phone gets fully charged when it leaves factory and you should you just use the juice it has left until you need to charge it.
    That's what I did and what I do with every single phone I get.

    Optimally you should start charging at around 40% and stop at 80%. Too low or too high values significantly shorten the life time of Li-Ion cells.
