    It's useful for those who live near water or want to take pics under water (like me today!)

    GREECE:

    Samsung Galaxy S8: 570 euro
    San Disc micro sdxc 64gb: 28 euro
    ------------------------------------------------------
    598 euro total

    ...and i'll get a bezeless phone with 5,8 super amoled screen,
    in the size of the usual 5,5 phones,
    total waterproof,
    with iris scaner,
    official guaranty etc.

    ...i think the numbers speak for themselves..

    3T is quite slippery as well. I've always hate the added buff of a case, so I got myself a dbrand skin instead. Their Dragonskin range add amazing grip to it, almost as good as OP famous sandstone backing. But it won't protect the phone if you drop it (got a scuff on the corner from a drop while charging), but I prefer the slimmer look nonetheless.

    WTF: from the latest Verge review: The only downside of Dash Charge is that it’s not cross-compatible with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, and you have to have both the charger and cable that OnePlus provides — so it’s not as much of a boon if you’re someone like me who prefers to carry just one USB-C charger for both laptop and phone.

    Will this thing charge (even slowly) from my PC USB with an off the shelf USB to type C cable?

    Yes it should. Same as when they were running MicroUSB.

    I couldn't afford the insurance today is it possible to buy it after? Like in 2 days time? Also this bumper case looks a little thick anyone seen any hands on with it?


    Have to say I'm disappointed the grey isn't on the bigger model also wanted that rather than black.

    ^^^ Thanks

    I'll be giving it the front pocket sweat test this weekend, I know my OPO doesn't like getting soggy.

    Waterproof is essential...it's the difference between don't care/peace of mind/carrying it to the pool/raining/taking underwater pictures AND lose instantly 560 euro .

    Unfortunately it happened to me and the lesson is learnt...

    The reasons why I will not buy the OnePlus 5 (at least not now)...
    1. not compatible with USB-PD - with Google strongly recommending USB-PD for Android 7.0 how long will it go, until devices can not get approved for a new version, if it does not support it.
    2. USB 2.0 :confused:
    3. looking at the official specs it looks like they have not payed for support for Galileo :(
    4. would have liked a better display. They where most likely not able to get that as of the lack of AMOLED screens.

    If they would have had the sandstone case in a bumper case, I would have bought it. I like having the physical buttons on the side covered up, not exposed. Guess I'll have to get a diztronic like I did with my OPO

    Really?! NO OIS?! That seems crazy for a phone so focussed on the CAMERA!

    They had the sandstone option on my end. Did you miss it by any chance? [​IMG]

    yes, it looks like a joke. no OIS. crappy small sensor. useless 2 x zoom (monochrome + color sensor + good soft would have made more sense)... oh yes, usb 2.0 - just fun if you upload a movie or do a backup... my note3 had usb3 already in 2013.

    They have a sandstone protective case. But I didn't see a sandstone bumper case. Just the Kevlar one. I like the bumper case because it covers the buttons
