    Well I think its a review.




    No other reviewer has seemed to find the bug Juan Bagnell found, what do they actually review these days.

    well even with the iPhone till someone tried to bend it it was all roses, so as long as there is no big initial problem they will all be ok with it, and also expect non of them to switch to it from what they are using.

    OP say they don't have the access to the tech to do small bezels, really?

    This at $180 says different

    They all mention the camera mode he found it in. There is not much reviewing going on here really, purely glossaries.

    Xiaomi come on. Stage is set for you now. Put hard work into your next device and go global.
    I won't say that OnePlus is finished. They might just silently merge back into Oppo. Exactly same chassis for their flagship, ever increasing prices, aggressive advertising are the signs of OnePlus losing its so called "philosophy". It is moving in the direction of unification with Oppo or may be just a software unit that gives an alternate stock-ish UI instead of bloated chinese ones.

    Pretty much, you can feel the lack of any excitement. I would almost say that the OP 3T is the OP 5 killer.

    There is a £145 difference between the OP3 and the OP5 in 1 year.
    If they were struggling in the UK before this will kill them, pricing in the UK is now very aggressive with the G6 now £100 cheaper than the OP5.
    OP have made the move to mainstream and the 8gb is there to seduce the fans.
    The only question left, is who will follow them in their new direction.

    This may change when I get the phone but having seen the 3T I think they may have underestimated the shoes they had to fill with that phone

    Well ppl with older phones perhaps, like opo, op2, etc. (other brands). They might upgrade. Ppl who have the I got to have the latest phone of a certain brand no matter what syndrome will go for it, and even if they hate it they will praise it.

    To be honest if the OP 3T was still for sale on OP site - from what i have seen it is gone for most countries - it would have seen a increas in sales i belive, it beeing the far superior performance/price ratio. The only problem with OP you never know when they will wake up and decide to stop updateing the OS of older phones.

    yes especially on camera. 4k video with no OIS. EIS. One plus 3t lot better.

    There is no much innovation in the OnePlus 5 but it's commitment to it's fans and community is what makes it stand out it has great specs for a competitive price and the little touch to the finish makes it premium. if you are a true fan then you will always appreciate the small details

    While i don't disagree with you, true fans also expect more. I see absolutely no reason to upgrade from the 3/3T to the 5.

    please could you specify what do you mean by More
    if 8gb ram coupled with the latest processor can't quench your thirst for performance I don't know what Will
    if a dual camera with a primary 16 mp and f1.7 and a telephoto 20 mp secondary [e]1f4f7[/e] that brings image into focus and gives you clarity on every picture you take I don't know what will
    if a slim metal unibody design with subtle cuvurture and smooth chamfered edges does not appeal to your palate I don't know what will
    all and all OnePlus has done a tremendous job on the OnePlus 5 and can't wait to get my hands on one

    Seems quite different than the R11 if you actually look at the device in person. Also OnePlus is not owned by OPPO, it is owned by BBK Electronics which also owns OPPO. ;)
