    That seems to be a pretty steep price since the last time I went to Dubai, a Camel is about $1000 or more. I can see all that minus the camel.

    ;) See above for all the rant I've got right now. Need my lunch before I have the energy for more :p

    OTOH, like someone pointed out in the original page comments, that leak might not be worth much because of the lack of an alert slider. Unpopular opinion time: I like the slider, and I'd be po'ed if it died. Particularly the pattern in its metal - although it would be better if it was remappable.

    I don't think so. But it is a good idea, I like it.

    I personally dont expect more RAM. 8GB could be an option for those willing to pay, but not for all models. Could help bring prices down, no?
    Waterproofing is important for cyclists like me or other sportsmen. What happens if you're out hiking in Yellowstone and you havent got an umbrella?
    Personally, I feel that OnePlus may come out with a second screen. In that case, OnePlus could make the home button glow in different colours as an indicator light for when people cannot use the second screen, such as when driving or when not wearing spectacles.
    Higher res screen is good, but OnePlus must compensate with a bigger battery for more juice.
    Also, as an audiophile, I would like to see a 32 bit quad DAC on the device.
    Of course, 3.5mm audio jack is a must. If no, OnePlus 5 is out of the question. I would instead go to HTC 10 or LG G6. Or maybe even a waterproofed version of LG V30?

    You can actually get an LG G6 from Best Buy for $288 right now. But the catch is that it's locked to Verizon's network. However, you can get it unlocked to work with your carrier either by calling Verizon and asking them to do it or get it done through a 3rd party service. I've done it before and it works, but you have to pay a small fee. But again, the G6 is only $288 so the fee shouldn't be a factor here. For this price, it's an absolute steal.

    From first glance, the 2nd looks better, but it's not that great either in my opinion. I checked out the comments under the tweet and there were many others claiming the same thing. However, the camera isn't a major factor for me considering I don't take a lot of pics. And besides, at the deployed location I'm at now, you're not even allowed to take photos.

    Dual sensors with cheap sensor is much cheaper than one average sensor

    I am referring to the oppo\mart . com, that you where most likely thinking about... that is not owned by OPPO... it is some noname shop, where it is not even possible to find any contact information (except two email addresses). So I would never use that webshop.
    And I hope noone else is going to use it.

    And whats exactly the issue with that? :confused: Does your phone stops working after not being sold anymore?

    They could still sell them at a cheaper price and keep the production, but I guess they want to have the factories focused at one model at a time. But that doesn't change anything about how great of a phone the op3/t is. ;)

    Can you please expand on this? What cheap sensors are in the OnePlus 5 and what are their cost compare to average sensors? Because I think the OnePlus 3t has an average sensor in the 16mp exmor imx298. So you're saying the op5 will have 2 sensors that combined will be cheaper than the 1 imx298?
