    There are several reviews of the camera on youtube already... here are a couple that I thought were fair






    Also Wireless charging is convenient, but not necessary if your phone's battery is not in a constant freefall

    This is why.

    You have a choice, a full metal back, or wireless charging. They can get around this, but it adds a full TWO mm in thickness if they space it correctly.

    Sorry bro. Premium metal feel was more important to the design team than WL charge.

    I feel your pain, I was hoping for micrsd support. No SD no buy, we pay we say.

    The huge advantage of QI charging is that you save your USB port, which is the first thing to wear out. Also fewer cables and clutter on the desk/nightstand/car.
    Sadly QI doesn't work if the phone has a metal back. QI only works with non-conductive surfaces like plastic or glass. A Nice solution would be if the logo itself was plastic and that's where the QI could be hidden.

    Qi charging is too slow. And if you charge 3x a day, 365 days a year, USC-C is still good for 9 years of insertion cycles. Way longer than potential ownership of any Smartphone. Especially OnePlus and even Pixel only support the OS for 2 years anyway.

    type c does not wear out as easy/fast like micro usb ! type c is much stronger connection. and "less clutter/less cables on desk" ???? you will have same cables if not more ! because QI wont dash charge... like i mentioned.. buy type c qi cable and you can put it on back of your phone if you really nitpick about it...personally i found QI charging horrible with so many phones.
