    They just need to enable always on display.

    I love the 6t, great update from my honor 7 which was on its last legs. The fingerprint sensor can be a bit hit and miss but coupled with the face unlock, which unlocks faster than I can get my finger to the fingerprint sensor, makes for really quick unlocking.

    I get what you say re the notification light but I'm quite happy without it, I quite like not having it and just checking the phone from time to time.

    I don't miss the headphone jack, I've got the bullets but I'm struggling to get on with them as they keep slipping out of my ears so I might have to try other headphones - or makes my ears less slippery

    The only annoyance I have is with the OS, my voice unlock pauses at inconvenient times - usually when I'm driving and I can't seem to get round it.

    Wasn't too pleased to see another version of the 6t released so close to buying mine on release day (McClaren version) but oherwise I'm very happy with the phone.

    So why you upgraded from 6 to 6t? Only for battery or you have a lot of excess money to spend. There is no single technological hardware upgrade here. Regardless of 6 the 6t has only better software updates. Although the same beta is available for 6 but not stable. OP will definitely provide the same stable version to sell the current version more rapidly. Even you will miss the upgrades of McLaren edition on your normal 6t. Your upgradation from 3T to 6 was justified but not from 6 to 6t. OP 6 is till now a better option than 6T and you will find it better. And for extra power a powerbank is sufficient to continue a same phone.

    oneplus should make some pixels form a circle on the top of the screen flash when you've got an notification. just something that would look like notification light but in screen.

    I wouldn't have upgraded if I wasn't selected to review the 6T. No need to change from the 6 to the 6T.
    Only if you like to have the latest phone and bfkirvr me, many people like to change when a new toy is available.
    Let's say everyone is free to do with their money what they want, even if you or me don't agree.

    OK, definitely you can review if someone send you a brand new phone free of cost. Actually I thought among other OP6 users perspective who bought their mobile with their hard earned money. Don't take it otherwise. If OP select me someday for a review I will do the same. I appreciate your review as well.

    Actually it is a great experience to have touch with new technology and new innovations. The finger print sensor is better in this range and battery performance also appreciatable.

    But there is no need to change from 6 to 6t. Since updates are almost same . The finger print sensor is fast even though it is in the back . Moreover it is having headphone jack.

    I changed from note sreies to 6t . In speed and performance I feel comfortable . I like use new technologies. and feel okkkk with the phone

    Hang on to that 3T mate. I recently dropped by Op3 in water and fingerprint scanner doesn't work anymore :(. I still love this phone. Fast AF. Lack of Notification light and in display fingerprint are the biggest things stopping me from buying the 6T.

    My update after one month of owning an 1+6T.
    I can put up with all minor issues (viz. no Notification LED, etc.). But not with very poor contrast ratio performance while under the direct sunlight conditions. Outside in full daylight, this phone's brightness/contrast performs extremely poorly. The screen is abysmally low-lit even after making the brightness level to 100%. i hadn't expected this from OP. Unfortunately, i had pre-ordered this handset, before its launch. Otherwise, if i had bought it after testing/experiencing it myself, then i definitely wouldn't have bought it.
    i understand that for many others, this poor brighness under outside/ daylight conditions may not be as important as to make them regret buying this phone. But for me, this lacunae would have crucially affected my buying decision. Alas, i am stuck with this!!!!!!
    Btw guys, is there any way to Jack up the brightness/contrast level beyond its current 100% level (in the outdoor daylight/Sun context only)? And Without Root, please note.

    In sunlight I do indeed need to turn the screen brightness to full, doesn't really annoy me that much to be honest, battery life is great so I can live with it.

    The grey background for the navigation bar looks really stupid. Even a blacked out background would be preferable. But for many of my apps its a grey horrific look.

    Transparent would be best. On the homescreen and app dock it looks fantastic. Why cant we have that all the time?

    Seems silly to be suggesting this, but why does the ringer volume affect ALL app volumes on this phone? I like my ringer to be a max volume, but then my Facebook Messenger notification sounds are REALLY loud and annoying because of this. If we could have a seperate trackbar for app notification volume, that would be REALLY nice.
