    Yea I read about this not long time ago but I am afraid is not available for android yet.
    They quality may be good but for that money I dont think so.
    Better buy DSLR than this.

    I have problems with the camera of my 1 plus 3T, one day I simply showed the problem of not focusing at the moment of taking a photo, has barely more than 3 months of use and I have not dropped my cell phone, and try formatting and nothing.. Help please, what should I do?

    Better low light camera (like S7) is the most important feature, no megapixel count. Dual camera? Not important for me, now is a marketing feature.

    Anybody else think that Oneplus should incorporate a higher quality DAC on the OP5??????

    Forgot hardware buttons... I know everyone is ditching hardware buttons, but on by current phone this is the seccond digitizer that is not working anymore where the navigation buttons are located. It would be easier/cheaper to replace hardware buttons than replacing the display/digitizer.

    I bought my one plus one a little more then 2 years ago at 299€ and looking 4 a new phone. Support for my one plus one is zero, software is not upgraded and it seems that a lot of people are experiencing random reboots.If they now go over 500 euro's for sure i will not even consider them, this is more then 100 euro's over the startprice of the oneplus 3. this is beyond reasonable. 500 euro is not pocket money anymore.For that kind of money you can get a phone with much better guarantee and you buy them at a local store were you can get to if something is wrong. My guess, starting over 499 euro's will leave a lot of first time fans dissapointed and the do not have the brandname like a samsung or a apple to support those prices.

    will the price (below 30k) of the phone be the major factor that determines who will be this year smartphone king (price : performance)..if oneplus 5 increases the price Then do you think xiaomi mi6 holds the edge or vice versa

    If you are talking of the OP5 then no comment since you choose not to do a forum search before creating your thread :p

    I'm an early user ... Bought OP1, OP2, OP3 but now I'm hesitating ... Bought a Mi5 for my daughter and was impressed with it at the low price of $ 300 ... seeing xiaomi mi6 as a clear alternative to OP5 ... But certainly think the price for both rushed away too fast so it will weigh heavily in my choice.

    My choice is clearly between OP5 and xiaomi mi6 ... If they get similar specifications, the price definitely determines ... Many specifications seem to be very similar and the only direct advantage of OP5 seems to be 5.5 screen

    Possible reasons to buy OP5
    - Waterproof
    - 4000 mAh battery
    - Price below $ 440

    Possible reasons to buy Mi6
    - Higher resolution of OP5 only enters 1440
    - OP5 price over $ 440
    - The OP5 battery is below 3350 mAh

    Global LTE bands (if I needed LTE, it would most likely be band 20, that is not available for the Mi 6).
    Gorilla glass, that is not available for the Mi 6.
    Fingers crossed... OLED screen that could be used in the OnePlus 5.

    Waterproof and curved display, the two most useless features...

    And waterproof does not even exist ... :rolleyes: waterproof ≠ IP68

    Can you get mi6 through retail store with warranty in your country!? I thought it only sold in China and few Asian countries.

    Mi5 has a non-branded armor glass which in my experience is at least as durable, and I assume the Mi6 has a similar solution which is according to my requirements
    alright... because... No matter what mobile brand you get, at least I'll give it with tempered glass protection and then the question of brand glass or not is irrelevant .

    According to known specifications, both mobiles have the same mobile network specification, Do you have a source of something else?... Do you have a source which confirms that OP5 will have FDD-LTE B20??

    GSM: B2/B3/B5/B8 CDMA1X/EVDO BC0
    WCDMA: B1/B2/B5/B8
    TD-SCDMA: B34/B39
    FDD-LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8
    TD-LTE: B38/B39/B40/B41

    Of course, OnePlus has a good working warranty solution, But not through retail store in any country other than possibly in China, as far as I know, you need to send it off to OnPlus in China.

    I bought my daughter's Mi5 from gearbest eu warehouse, It has a warranty equivalent to OnePlus and all other brands, yes you need too send away the mobile phone as you must with OP. So no big difference actually.

    When the last four phones have supported band 20 in Europe, then why should they suddenly change that for the next phone ;)
