Obvious color deviation on the metal band - why is no one talking about this?


Does your device look like advertised?

  1. Yes, black and bright silver (like iPhone 4S)

  2. No, basically no contrast between body and band

    Mine definitely looks silver. Not as bright as advertised (and I am glad for it) but it doesn' look black/blue.
    However I don't care, I plan to use a case.

    Mine is silver. But the ribs that are machined into it makes the band look iridescent sometimes.

    So, apparently I am not alone with my unhappinis about the mis-advertising. Thanks for the feedback.

    I wonder though were all the devices are that supposedly look exactly as advertised? Havent seen a picture in this thread yet...

    I appreciate your efforts, but cant help but wonder why everyone jumps to the rescure of oneplus here. I do have a aluminium Nexus 6P right next to me that ACTUALLY does look silver in the way its advertised. No need to blast it with reflection to make it look remotely close to what its advertised to look at.

    For me the case is simple:
    Oneplus willingy build upon the "iphone asthetics" and showed a phone that more or less resembles a 5 inch iphone 4S. The promised and underdelivered.

    I agre e exactly with this..in fact darker metal seems to blend in well with the darkish nature of opx

    Light silver finish would have given this phone a more classy look as opposed to the dark one. The dark metal blends with the phone color almost completely and doesn't looks like it's metal. Even then also, it looks nice.

    Yes, mine is kinda bluish, and I also think that it is a very different color than those in the official photos. But I like it. In fact, I think it makes the phone rare and unique.

    Hello @DeathMetalMods!
    I think @Phil Ferne already gave the right explanation, for me anyway...
    In the advertising pictures the 6P and every apple phone has nearly flat metal frame, the OPX has pin stripes like this:
    Frame 02.png
    The silver color you noticed on this part is caused by reflections of light according to physical principles. The more flat the surfaces is the more silver it looks like because of a direct light path (incidence and emergent angle). The pin stripes / longitudinal grooves of the OPX refract the light in different directions, even repeatedly between the two faces of the groove (not shown here).
    Frame 01.png
    So the silver color (=light reflection) can only be recognised in special angles of view.

    I like this a lot, it makes the phone much more mystical :cool:. The simple and flat silver can be reproduced by everyone - even Motorola and apple :p:p:p!
