    I don't think that if they ll use the SD820 they ll throw the never settle e.t.c All flagships of 2016 now using the SD820 so it wil ll be in the game as it should. Now the rest of the specs will judge the OP3 if it will be a big player in the game or not. SD823 should be tested first and confirm its stability usage without any heating issues. SD820 looks pretty good and stable without any complains. So most likely they ll go for SD820 i supposed

    OP may not opt for the trial n error game with the processor and would select SD820 being used by many OEMs successfully.:p
    However, they must focus more on the software to remove the discomfort of many.:D

    Yeah. SD820 is great already, so it's more important i supposed to optimize the OS better and then we can have amazing results ;)

    Never Settle is supposed to mean that you never settle for the lower class things, and the SD820 is lower class compared to the SD823

    no one whined about the G4 or the moto x having 808s and then you didn't hear a peep out of anyone for the 6p having an 810.

    consumerism and boredom are powerful drugs.

    I would be more than happy with sd 820 if they give 6gb of RAM :p and its under 400$ :D

    Some people seem to think more is always better. But I think the majority are starting to see that's not the case. Same as megapixel count on a camera.
    8MP is big enough to blow a photo up to a canvas and still not be able to see the individual pixels. So pushing to go from 13 to 18 to 21mp and so on is pointless. What's much more relevant is pixel size, sensor size, lens quality and then the very smart features such as laser focus, optical zoom, dual sensor cameras etc.

    Adding more RAM just means you're powering more RAM than your phone needs, so burning more battery Also, more ram costs more, so you're either paying for something that you'll never use, or the manufacturer has made the decision to make something lower quality to keep the price low as a trade off for giving you more RAM.
    4GB of RAM is more than enough for a phone, and it will still be enough in 2 years time.

    Is the SD823 even real? I saw it in an article for a rumour on the HTC M10 mini (which ended up to be an April fool's joke), and a few other rumours but not even Qualcomm mentioned anything about it.

    While the other competition devices carries the SD820, for me it's still a Never Settle stuff if it ll carry the SD820 as well. Better to use something stable and tested than a fast decision of the SD823 in my opinion

    It seems SD820 runs cool. I wouldn't risk a higher clocked (and more expensive) cpu...

    So you're hoping the phone has an unexisting SoC that's be rumored in a few shady sites rather than a real one?

    No thanks, I prefer my OP3 to have a real SoC.

    I've been on these forums for more than two years and this is getting old. Every time OnePlus starts preparing a smartphone everyone starts talking about how SoC X is so much better than SoC Y, even though (please pick of the options):
    1. That SoC is not released yet and won't be for at least 6 more months
    2. That SoC doesn't really exist
    3. That SoC is made by Samsung and they won't really sell it to OnePlus
    4. That SoC is made by Huawei and they won't really sell it to OnePlus
    5. That SoC is made by Mediatek and that means you won't get the kernel's source code
    6. That SoC isn't really better than SoC Y, it's just newer
    7. That SoC is more expensive and doesn't really bring any real improvements
    8. That SoC <Place_your_own_option_here>

    Using that same logic, you could have said that the OPO should've gone with the SD800, but they chose the 801.

    If exodus stops supporting one plus one, then only i will consider changing my OPO. Truely amazing and still it feels rock solid in hand.

    Our one plus already have required hardware to run almost future versions of android. Thing we need is a software, that can handle this beast. Exodus excels in that part

    OP could have gone with SD800 but opted for SD801 for hyping mostly. :D

    People still talking about NFC? Thats like equivalent to a backseat cupholder in a car. Only 5% of people actually use it, but everyone wants to complain that they don't have it.
