    Glas is breaking, metal is bending...

    I look two days at the back and the rest of phones life at the case.

    Where is the Innovation?

    Yeah, this is what I think lacks honesty. It is clear to everyone that the OnePlus 6 will be a slight variation of the Oppo R15 and Vivo X21, with better performance. And yet they are still pretending to be completely independent.

    Don't forget taking away the scheduled DND that exists in AOSP. They REMOVED a feature telling us that the slider is better. So, instead of my phone going silent when my calendar says I'm busy, at work, or when sleeping, I have to remember to switch the slider. That's way easier than having the phone do it for me!

    a glass back is appreciated if it comes w/ a wireless charging, if not, it just make the device fragile and a fingerprint magnet.

    True that. I think this announcement probably gives us a hint that OnePlus 6 might have wireless charging :)

    So what? a glass body??? Not really new, got it in the good ol OP X, and you know what? Most users use it with a silicon case,because the glass slips way too easily through your fingers, same like the OP5 body. How about a sandstoned glass??? Honesty- most important should be to listen to user s demands, especially a camera with OIS and an optical zoom or a cover where you can easily attach some external lenses. At all a phone is something we re all have bought for using it. Never put my phone an my desk and looking for it s beauty- i want a phone that works and gives me the feeling every great reliable tool is giving me. That is my personal honesty- do something special, stop following some dumb standards, otherwise users will buy a huawei or another "Big bang for buck" device.

    there are devices with glass back but doesnt come with a wireless charging. Glass back doesn't always mean a wireless charging is featured.

    Seriously glass for backcover? Does it get free repairs or something when it gets broken?
    Why glass?

    It is nice on pictures to sell more and more. But for real use cases: it get scratches and will break!
    After 3 oneplus generations (2, 3, 5) it will stop for me now. Only because it has a glass backcover.

    So to recap this is a honest industrial OPPO R15 clone.
    I'm glad that your design choice has been clarified.

    True they are leaning towards the glass body because it is a trend and if they actually heard what people wanted they would have definitely have made camera their priority because that is where OnePlus is falling behind

    metal > glass. durability > design. dash charge >wireless charge.
    It doesn't look like you listen to your target audience again, just like in the OP2/OPX days...
