    You best keep thinking on that one then and get ready to sell your heavily Samsung driven OP3T

    Can someone please enlighten this good fellow, who's factories do you think the SD835's are residing in currently;).

    you say Samsung manufactures the chip. Ok...? that doesn't mean anything. who designed the chip? Qualcomm. just because Samsung manufactures the chip doesn't mean they are the designers etc. that's not Samsung power. that Qualcomm power. Samsung just manufactures the chips. they have nothing to do with its core power.

    Yes, the Exynos is the best SOC. Qualcomm have a very sketchy design record. The mess they made of the 810 was a joke.

    Qualcomm got Samsung to do it because of the disaster with the SD810.
    You say you hate Samsung and they are crap, well let me teach you something about your OP3T
    The Screen we all know is Samsung
    The SOC fabricated by Samsung
    Now look, your beloved 6gb of ram

    Your 64gb storage

    Time for a rethink maybe?

    Am I the only one who doesnt think waterproff is something important.
    And a curved screen and design like the samsung galaxy 7 is to ugly to buy.

    I just want a big mother fuc*ing battery
    4000+ ( the bigger the better) with faster carging like the 20 min charger from meizu
    The opitcal soom from oppo woud be so flagship killer
    6 ram is fine
    128gb memmory with maybe sd card
    Snapdragin 835
    And a 5.5 + screen with no curved bulsh*t
    Headphone jack with maybe stereo speakers

    And all that for a pricetag of 400 to 450 €

    Been a long time since on these forums...But I'm just gonna put my two cents in and say my OnePlus has NEVER caught on fire.....Anywhere... Furthermore, OP does what it can to identify and address any defects with their products...Not sweep it under the carpet like others have..

    ah thank you for pointing that out.

    You have made me no longer hate Samsung, but hate Samsung branded phones such as the galaxy devices.

    i never had an exynos phone? I'm just saying snapdragon designs their own chips and has someone else manufacture it.

    I don't care about the specs bcoz they are going to have the latest. I just want the sandstone back cover to return and screen get bigger but in still in the same body. A headphone jack but at the bottom only and new better design. But yeah sandstone back cover to return!

    Yellow band swept under the carpet.
    1. Uncured glue to hide it
    2. Colour temp change in ota to hide it
    3. They called it a feature
    4. They flat out refused RMA when OPPO was accepting rma for the same issue with the same screen.
    All this in their first few months.
    I posted a picture of a fire starter OPO earlier in the thread and more people Note 7's didn't catch fire than devices sold by OP.
    That's my pennies worth.

    Actually, the latest Kirin, in comparative tests with what
    Actually, the latest Kirin chip, in comparative tests with what Samsung, Qualcomm Mediatec and Apple are producing, had the highest ratings for performance across a range of benchmark tests. Huawei really stepped up the game recently.

    Latest Kirin u say?so did these tests involve the latest 835 & Exynos 8895 chips? & eveybody knows benchmarks are cheated & mean nothing,it's real world speed that counts,do agree Huawei are improving fast tho..

    Yes, it was compared to 835, A10, latest exynos etc.

    As you say, benchmarks can be cheated. But when it's multiple independent people doing the tests, and each using a range of testing parameters and benchmark tests, I think the general consensus putting the Kirin on par or on top of the latest from the others is very impressive, regardless.

    OP4/OP5/OP-Over9000 should get inspired by G6. Or I can see myself switch to that phone after this one for sure.

    Lets get that rounded cornered screen, with thin bezels, all around.

    No camera bump, dual lens and have the ability to do that blurry backgrounded portrait shots like iPhone. Looks real good.

    Internal upgrades are expected , so I wont bother with mentioning every spec bumps. Its gonna happen anyways, naturally.

    Bigger battery is always welcome. Probably gonna happen or maybe it will stay the same. Just dont downgrade from the current flagship.

    18:9 ratio. You saw it on the G6, you know you all secretly like it, like alot.

    2k or not, well if it happens, great. If not, I dont care. I never cared.

    Matte black colorway too.

    If youre gonna lose the headphone jack, go ahead. One day this may happen. If not, thats great!

    Like I said it's real world speed that counts,I like the look of the P10 especially in blue but would I prefer 2 the S8,Zx premium or G6,probably not..
