    Sad to hear how you got treated. Hopefully things like this don't happen anymore on the opo forum and members will actually support each other with useful comments. I understand now why you said that earlier, I'll definitely keep it in mind if I do come across a problem. I hope you're happier with your 2nd phone now!

    QUOTE="Lisa Togo, post: 8749840, member: 431979"]Ordered my OPO on the 17th of December and it came on the 30th of December. I am extremely happy with it and its definitely a flagship killer in my opinion; but it does have a few flaws.

    My previous phone was the nexus 5 which I also really liked, and I will be doing comparisons between the two.

    *Note*
    My opo does not have the yellow band or any dead pixels that I can see.

    Unboxing:

    This was a delight to unbox. The packaging was really well-designed and just made it feel unique with its color scheme. The packaging was much more impressive compared to the nexus 5 box. I have to give credit to Oneplus for the attention to detail and presentation.
    The charger also followed the color scheme and the looks really stand out.

    Hardware:
    The phone is really well built. It feels solid and the silver lining makes it look expensive. I have average sized hands and this phone feels quite big. The nexus 5 feels more comfortable in the hands, but its not impossible to use the opo one handed (as long it you don't have to reach for the corners of the screen. The sandstone back feels okay and it gives off a plastic smell. I'd much prefer the white version of the back cover.

    Battery:
    What a huge improvement from the nexus 5. For me, it lasts for a whole day with moderate use. Whereas the nexus 5 would've died on me halfway through the day. I don't know how other people are getting 2 days without charging from their opo, however, the battery won't disappoint you. The charger charges the phone extremely fast as well (1 hour for a full charge!)

    Software:
    In the three days I used the phone, I've had to force reboot only once because the phone became unresponsive. Cyanogen is really fun to use and the customization option really make it level better than stock android! Sometimes it glitches a bit, but it doesn't bother me too much. I haven't come close to using all the features yet, because there's so many! It'll take some time to learn:p

    Sound:
    The sound comes out well rounded in my earphones. With the nexus 5 the sound is more extreme, by that I mean, the highs are very high and the lows are very low. The opo is more of a healthy medium. The audiofx app lets you control bass and sound effects. I love using it because it makes music sound just that much nicer:)

    Camera:
    Very impressive camera. It would be even better if it have image stabilization:rolleyes: In dim lit areas, there's some noise but for normal use, the camera is more than enough!

    Overall, the hype for this phone is well deserved, but sometimes it becomes too exaggerated. Still, I am definitely pleased and impressed by the phone. It's not perfect but it's unique.;)[/QUOTE]
    One more motivation To buy the phone.

    I cant really comment on the display as I haven't taken off the screen cover the OPO came with yet ahahah I'm waiting until i get a tempered glass screen protector before i take it off:p

    But WITH the cover on, i have to say that the display is quite sharp. Not the sharpest, but its still very pleasant to look at. Also, you can make the screen brightness really high when its sunny so its easy to see the display and turn the screen brightness really low for dark places.

    Not much to complain about the display:)

    Gee, I thought I was paranoid; that factory screen protector must be 85% opacity?
    Anyway its good to see someone who takes care of their latest Pride and Joy.
    First thing I got was a flip cover to protect it; then a tempered to make double shore.
    It didn't happen to me but a forum member said that he was worried about damaging the back of his coz he was taking the cover off each time he showed someone. And why not, it is a beautiful thing!!

    I agree with you that its prob 85% opacity or worse even lmao
    My previous phone's (nexus 5) screen completely shattered after a drop and it had no screen protector or case on, which is probably why it broke so badly. This time, I'm gonna try to protect the phone as much a possible to avoid what happened before:rolleyes: plus i really do like the opo<3

    Thinking of getting the tudia cygen case for impact absorption and the orzly tempered glass!
