    Well, I went on vacation last week, and sadly my OnePlus went for a swim with me. I felt a vibration in my pocket about 5 minutes after I jumped into a pool. The poor thing kept vibrating for about an hour...then quietly moved on. Since I was on vacation, and my life is in my phone (LastPass, various two-factor authentications, etc) I had to replace it on the spot so I got an S7 Edge. I forgot how much I hate carrier phones. Between the bloatware and the fact that the carriers are only selling the 32GB version in the US, I am not happy. Yeah, the hardware is great, the camera impeccable, and the screen a dream to look at, I will miss my OnePlus until my next upgrade, or maybe I can give my son my Edge and pick up the OnePlus 3 in a couple months :)

    Say what you will about the OnePlus One, and we all have, repeatedly, but it's customizations and software while not perfect certainly make carrier phones pale in comparison.

    How come you didn't get the 6S Plus if you don't like the carrier crap and wanted more storage? Truthfully that's what I'm probably going to do once the 7 releases and the 6S price goes down!

    I needed a new phone right away, couldn't wait for shipping. Since I was out of town, I was stuck going to a carrier store. Two-factor auth and remote access for work made it a time crunch.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Don't most US carriers have a 30 day "Trial" period where you can exchange make/models or return for a refund, if your unhappy with your purchase or contract?

    Between now and late November, there'll be a lot of new choices in hardware. :yum:


    (Including a rumored waterproof iPhone. :smilingimp: )

    That is the sad thing with Lifeproof cases not available for OPO. THE only reason for apple phone to me.

    Is it worrying that I thought the same thing when I read this tale? :confused:

    With each new CM update. my OPO seems to run faster and smoother or maybe it's because I'm growing older and slower!:p

    Probably because a bloatware full android is still better than boring IOS

    Talk about perfect timing for the recent Google Photos campaign! Sadly, it wasn't that dramatic, or I might have saved the phone. Instead, it sat in my pocket underwater for a good 5 minutes or more...
