Has the OP3T changed your opinion of OnePlus?

    Yes there is a small disappointment even if I belong in the first users of OP3. I think it was too soon especially when you have customers waiting still for their device to be delivered after a month. Not cool move.

    I will not buy OP3T or OP4T because i'm PROUD (yes proud) to own a OP3.
    Great phone. I'll change it when it will definetly broke.
    For me OP3T is not a problem. I just want the support for the OS for the next 2-3 years, nothing more.
    Just A Market decision for 1+

    (I hope in the future a tablet...)

    I tend to agree. Google Pixel is at £599 for 32gb and £699 for 128gb. How much will the OP3T 128gb? How much would the OP4 be June/July next year? I personally do not need much memory on my phone. Thus if the price of OP4 approaches £500, I may be swayed to spend the extra £100-£200 to get a Pixel with guaranteed software updates for next few years.

    I'm not upset with their business practices. But I will be upset if the op4 doesn't have 8GB ram. I was hoping LeEco would start the 8GB ram trend but they didn't

    I am a bit dissapointed. I think 3T ( Trump version) is unnecesseary.
    For me just the expandable memory is the useful update.
    Most of people know that next year in Juli or Juny the OP 4 will be realised with more updates, and for that reason i think they won't by this 3T model.
    And i dont understand that, why 3T prise is 440 €, in stead of 400 €, and the price of the ,,old" OP 3 is still 400 € :-$.
    Why not OP 3 price went lower?
    For example 350 € ?
    I think 3T was a mistake :-$

    Sorry my English! I used Google translater :p.

    Personally speaking I could never part with £600-700 for a phone my mate dropped £819 on a iPhone 7+ 128gb which is an obscene amount of money for a "phone".

    I do agree prices for phones are going up and up but as long as the price gap remains fairly significant there will always be a market for OP.

    I'm slightly disappointed as I just bought op3 4 weeks ago, but is the T worth the extra money I would say no. slight increase in battery life, you won't see the difference in real day use 820 vs 821 I'd say, that being said I'm going back to Nexus 6p for a year for quick updates and the better screen.

    Yep. I have the OP2 and OP3. My next phone would be the next Pixel. To me this says their flagship phones are not the best that they can make - they are holding back small upgrades that they can sell as a different sku in a few months. Almost like day one DLCs.

    I read the article on XDA
    'http://www.xda-developers.com/exclu...at-it-means-for-the-future-of-your-oneplus-3/'.
    To me it really looks like OP marketing wanted to release the 3 in june and didn't give a damn on the fact that the developers hasn't finished it. So the 3 rolls out like a green banana. And now after 5 month they come over with the ripe yellow banana 3T. Except the battery the 3T is not such a big deal to me and i still like my 3 (except battery life :)), but i cant help feeling a bit screwed by OP. For the future i will think twice about buying something from OP, and let pass some time after release for sure.

    So you would buy a phone which costs significantly more just because OP released 2 phones within 12 months?
    Out of curiosity how long do you generally keep your phones for?

    My honest opinion:

    I am happy with my OP3. One of the main reasons for OP3 were the camera and the good price for the complete package of features.

    Although I am happy I am a little angry and or sad about the announcement of the 3T. It has more memory, more battery and a slightly better cam-sensor.

    It's a little weird. It feels like I was just a full price beta tester and the REAL product OP planned at first is now released after testing a prototype, for the full price.

    No way I will sell my current phone and never go again for the next one. If I need a new phone I will choose it for mainly camera, some other nice features and the price. I will choose the best price/performance ratio for my needs. What company it will be is my least choice.

    Also I will not go for the 4 just because it is the next one and I need it. I will buy a new one when I think it is time for it.


    I can understand people that are angry to a certain point, because there is a bit of a weird taste. You buy a new phone use it for almost a month or two, and suddenly there is a better version of the same one.

    But most people just need to calm down and stop flaming and swearing against OP and Carl or say "I will never go for OP again" If I buy a phone just because of the brand I surely have other problems :D

    820 was the top dog back in June. Qualcomm might've been holding back but OnePlus weren't .

    Quoted from xda:

    Most importantly, the OnePlus 3 is no moreas the phone has reached the end of its life in terms of official availability (this also means no more Graphite color option). From now on, the OnePlus 3T will be the company’s flagship moving forward.

    I am pretty sure OP will just be clearing the current stock as I said referring to the tweet you mentioned.
