    The battle of all battles, which is the best bang per buck.
    The heavily updated speed you need OP6 or the MI8 on beta Miui 10.
    Stock v Skin

    Njoy:D or Not:rolleyes:

    Over the wkend in the right place £330-340.
    Cheapest OP I could find £420 with the Red arriving, last week £386.

    I suppose the Mi has a little less screen real estate so it would be slightly less expensive.:D:p

    You really seem to make a hobby of finding good value.:)

    Why pay more than you need to I always say.:D
    O.07" worth of extra screen v a 10 bit panel;), the Mi8 has the OP covered before the EE even gets here.:)

    It lost in all 3 of a OP fans holy grail, to beta skinned software.
    It's game over before the fully optimised version gets here. I can see a OP steroid filled update on the way, again.:tearsofjoy:

    Probably beginning of the Regular open betas for the OP6 (Although There is already a second beta for Android P).
    Although might not be fair to compare beta with stable. I don't know much about Mi betas but OnePlus betas are sometimes better than Stable ones.

    But The Mi 8 has a larger back camera sensor , has optical zoom too and hdr 10 display

    They have done some work on it and it will be ready for release very soon, Miui beta 10 is based on Oreo.
    The last time i saw the beta in action it wasn't holding apps in memory and it scored less on Antutu.
    From the score I can see they have added the GPU optimisations from the Black Shark, so once they have finished OS optimisations 300k.
    It will be ready for purchase in a couple of weeks.
    Xiaomi have stepped on software and hardware, OP should take note as the MI8 and the 5Z are showing then a clean pair of heals

    The competition will only get tougher, there is no price difference for OnePlus to justify compromises now.
    It will be good for the competition if done

    There is compromise and then there is cashing in on your popularity.
    There is very little hardware difference between the OP3 and the OP6 yet the OP6 weighs in at almost £200 more.
    That's a lot of money for the addition of a depth sensor and swapping metal for glass.
