    For me things were never black or white. As I say in the text that supports that thunderclap "The reason why I’m going through all this trouble is precisely because I like OnePlus. ".

    Maybe because I'm still close to the mods, I do believe things can change for the best. Or maybe it's just me that sees things differently now.

    It was a good presentation, but i think that the wow effect of the live event was damaged by the leak of specs and details of the last days due to some reviewers :(

    Good for you to move on.

    I'm having difficulty doing that myself as OnePlus has changed since the original One. They talk a good game but actions speak louder than words.

    the audience was very quiet and think some presentations were a little bit bad rehearsed.. and ofc that face unlock demo not went very well cause I felt only was double tap to wake working..

    The presentation was ok but didnt got me too much excited so as to make me buy it.
    Well I am still on my Note 4 looking for a new phone but atm is hard to decide which to buy.

    The presentation was OK , but a bit too long for such a small update.
    For technical issues - loudness of mics was way too low comparing to videos in between. Impossible to listen on OnePlus 3T comfortably

    to be honest I preferred the videos before the event, a guy standing in front of a screen wasn't that exciting. The phone is reviewing well though.

    I just loved the event and one plus 5T is going to easily beat the other flagship in the race.. Well done one plus team. Secondly, I was just inspired by Carl and his thought process. He seemed such a calm and subtle guy.

    @David Y. @Carl I have a very good idea which can attract a new market where one plus team could focus as well. I believe this is the opportunity for one plus to be ahead in the game. Please target people who believe in Bitcoin, Etherium and other digital currencies. Its a 200 billion dollar market cap community and if one plus can be ahead and start accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency as a payment for one plus devices...I am very sure media will give a very good coverage as well as it will support one plus in marketing. Moreover, no other smartphone company is accepting digital currencies. Its your opportunity to be one step ahead!

    If you have any questions then please feel free to message me. Happy to help one plus with my inputs.

    I really liked the Launch Event. And the 5T looks gorgeous on the front. But, I am also really sad about the Fingerprint going on the back. But, as said during the launch, it was necessary. Probably, won't be able to get the 5T though(Even though, liked the device a lot), as I already have the OnePlus 5 [e]270c[/e]️[e]1f64f[/e][e]1f525[/e]

    I do like these launch events and the swag bags you provide. When I upgrade my OnePlus 5 in 2-4 years I will go along to the launch event in London

    David ,
    In all honesty I felt the keynote was much to long for my liking , some sections lost my attention as I found myself looking to fast forward to the next speaker.
    Edit: It's quite possible that viewing the presentation in person probably wouldn't have seemed as lengthy.

    That said , maybe shorter bullet points were needed to highlight the new features along with showing the device live in the hands of real fans also projected onto the big screen as well.

    Also it would have helped if I had a review unit to vouch for what was being communicated in the keynote.
    :D;)
